Discussion about aveda products

Hi,I just joined naturally curly today. Over the past few months I have tried tons of products trying to tame my really thick frizzy wavy/curly hair and it has been a frustrating journey. I currently am using aveda dry remedy shampoo and conditioner. Now the main point is that I want to know if aveda is curly girl friendly and if their products are really natural and are not harmful. I have been told by salon and beauty salespeople that aveda is not really natural. Tell me if it damages curly hair in the long run. :blob3:

    Aveda is committed to being "green." Not sure if that actually means "all natural." The shampoos all have sulfates. The Dry Remedy masque is good but I have never checked the ingredient list so I'm not sure if it has cones or not. The Damage Remedy leave in is cool to put on wet hair but when I put it on dry hair I mix in an oil of some sort. It all smells real good.

    They are not all curlygirl friendly, no. Not sure about the specifics of what you are using, but I know many of their styling aids have cones.

    "All natural" can mean a lot of things and usually doesn't mean much at all when you are using commercial products. Natural Haven does a good job of explaining how companies are able to claim that they are "all natural" -- most of those chemicals started off as something natural. Chemicals aren't some nasty evil thing, and if you're trying to follow textbook CG you will end up using them a lot.

    Aveda is one of those brands that has long held a reputation for being pure, natural, safe and environmentally friendly. After all, Aveda brands itself as “providing beauty industry professionals with high performance, botanically based products that would be better for service providers and their guests, as well as for the planet.”

    I believe aveda products contain all natural product.

    Its too fragrant for me to use. Great products but when you have a scent sensitive husband with asthma......
