Hair & Beauty Review: Aveda Colour Conditioner in Madder Root
Good morning my lovelies,
Disaster struck this morning when I discovered that I have ran out of my favourite conditioner! As you will know from my previous posts, I am a natural redhead. I have never dyed my hair (another colour would just look weird with my freckles!!) and I have learned over the years to appreciate my natural colour. However, there is nothing wrong with a little bit of help now and again.
I LOVE this Aveda conditioner to perk up and enhance my natural colour. I do not use it all the time, I tend to save it for special occasions such as weddings etc... just to add a further hint of vibrancy to my natural colour.
I think I have used this Aveda product for around 10 years and I will continue to use it for as long as I can find it.
I use a normal shampoo first, then the Aveda conditioner, followed by my normal conditioner. Two conditioners may seem like overkill, however I do not find that the Aveda conditioner gives the same softness to my hair.
The Aveda conditioner will be more effective the longer you keep it on. I am impatient, so 15-20 minutes is usually my maximum time.
I can't find a photograph showing my hair from behind, however I think that this side shot (completely untouched) shows the vibrancy that the conditioner adds to my natural colour. It is hard to capture in a photograph as the shininess reflects the light.
This is one of my few staple products that I would truly miss if it were to be discontinued.
