COST: $25 each
THE SKINNY: Aveda is great at making samples of its products available, such as this duo from its Invati line. This product is meant to fight breakage and make each strand of hair a little thicker.
The shampoo is exfoliating to remove excess build-up and leave hair healthier. Both also promote shine.
They did leave my hair shiny, but that's it. My hair was heavy and looked greasy halfway through the day. I tried skipping the conditioner, but I got the same result.
This is not for me. But it gets two stars for shine.
KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. I can't use shampoo that ultimately makes my hair look dirty.
CHECK IT OUT: The Invati line includes a scalp revitalizer.
