A hair care system that promises to reduce hair loss by 33%? Cosmo’s Victoria Horn tries the products and treatment on her lifeless locks.
Lotus Day Spa & Salon is getting rave reviews on our Invati products, they give Yuma women back what they’ve lost, the confidence from a beautiful head of thick hair. Call us at 928-345-4744 for a consultation and to try Invati today.
They say: A hair care system produced from 97% naturally derived ingredients, that reduces hair loss by 33%. The hero ingredient being turmeric, it is known to be a powerful spice for visibly ageing hair and scalps and is used as an anti-inflammatory because of its antioxidant properties. Combining the latest scientific advances, Aveda created Densiplex, a potent herbal mix of ingredients that help to energize and rehabilitate the scalp, in turn, preventing hair breakage.
The three step Invati regime is made up from an Exfoliating Shampoo, a Thickening Conditioner and a Scalp Revitalizer.
We say: Being a bottle blonde, I’ve always suffered with hair breakage and I definitely didn’t inherit the ‘thick hair gene’ from my mother. Instead, I have to put up with lifeless, lank locks, that don’t seem to grow, ever.
The Invati at-home regime
For one month I traded in my normal shampoo and conditioner, for the Invati three step system, and I must say, the results were quite impressive. The exfoliating shampoo is used to clean the scalp by removing the build-up of product residue and sebum. The thickening conditioner is massaged into the scalp rather than the roots, which scared me at first, because conditioner normally leaves my hair greasy if applied anywhere but the ends but it has been clinically proven to thicken hair by penetrating the root and strengthening it with natural amino acids and after blow-drying my hair I was pleasantly surprised with the healthy looking shine and weightlessness. The third step, the scalp revitalizer, is the strongest of the three products and uses turmeric and ginseng to revitalize the scalp around the hair follicles.
The product needs to be applied twice daily, which, for me, proved to be slightly difficult. It has a very strong, distinct smell, and with my busy schedule, I found it hard to make time to apply it on a morning and leave time for it to dry in, but always managed to apply it before bed. I found the best way to apply the spray was to section my hair evenly and cover each side of my head with eight squirts that covered the whole scalp, before massaging it in. I noticed that after using it, once it dried in (after about 30mins), my hair looked immediately thicker and had more volume because it had a slight lift at the roots, probably created from the massaging and to my disbelief, didn’t look greasy, at all.
After two weeks, I noticed a significant reduction in the amount of hair I used to lose when brushing alone. I no longer needed to remove the handful of hair from my Tangle Teezer that came with every brushing session. When the month was over, I felt like my hair had life back in it and definitely looked healthier. I know the products are a tad on the expensive side but I would really recommend the regime to anyone that worries about hair thinning and loss.
The Invati in-salon treatment
Aveda also offer a professional in-salon treatment, which is part of their Botanical Therapy Range. You can get the scalp detox treatment without moving from the salon chair. The treatment can be done alone or as an addition to your normal cut or colour. The pampering session isn’t only for those with hair loss problems; it can be used by regular customers who need the build-up of product residue removing from their scalp.
I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing head massage and was impressed with the technician’s knowledge of the products. I left the salon with a beautiful bouncy blow-dry, hair that looked a shade lighter at the roots and felt denser and more refreshed than it had in years.
