Shampoo and conditioner can be hard to review and talk about on a blog because everyone has different hair. But guess what, I’m going to talk about it anyway because I really like this shampoo and conditioner. I’ve tried a few things from Giovanni now and I can definitely say it’s one of my new favorite brands. They’ve got good products that do what they say and have relatively clean ingredients. Oh, and they are affordable!
So here it is, the Giovanni Avocado and Olive Oil Dual Moisture Complex Shampoo and Conditioner. I wanted to try this set from the brand because I really wanted a moisturizing shampoo. Also, avocado and olive oil are super great for hair, so it seemed like a good place to start.
I’ve got thick, wavy hair, that loves loves loves to frizz. I wanted products that would give my hair as much moisture as possible, and not strip it. I wash my hair 2-3 times a week depending on whats going on, and my hair gets so poofy after I wash it. A super moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, plus a little product, give my hair something to hold onto.
I love the words ‘Ultra Moist’ on the bottle, because it’s so true. The shampoo actually looks like conditioner, which I took as a good sign it was going to work.
As you can see on the bottle, it’s packed with vitamins, omega fatty acids, and free of sulfates (which can be so drying). I wouldn’t consider myself to have dry or damaged hair, I just have hair that likes to be very moist.
The first time I used this, I thought “lathers nice, smells good, we’re on the tight track”. The next day I was like “hey my hair looks pretty good! What did I do differently?” Then I remembered, I started using a new shampoo and conditioner!!
The products make my hair feel soft and silky, which make my curls fall into place better. It’s been crazy humid so my hair is still frizzy, but not as bad as before. Giovanni hit the nail on the head here, and I’m so happy I tried it.
Every few weeks I go in with a hair mask, and every few weeks I was with a different shampoo that is more clarifying to get any excess gunk out. My hair is looking the best it has in awhile!
Giovanni makes hair products for all hair types so they will definitely have something for you depending on your hair!
I’ve got a few other Giovanni products in the works, so keep and eye out for more reviews!
