NEW Giovanni Avocado and Olive

NvmbrCurlssNvmbrCurlss Posts: 732Registered Users Curl Neophyte
On a whim, I picked up this DC (beautiful bottle I must say) and the Direct Leave In to try on my son's 3C medium textured, low porosity hair. I used last night after washing with Dr. Bronners Baby Mild Castille, allowed the DC to sit for the remainder of his bath, rinsed, then smoothed through GDLI and used a nickel sized puddle of Grapeseed oil to seal immediately. The DC smells light, but sweet with herbal hints. It's creamy but not heavy. I think his hair likes this! Ill keep using it and we'll see. I may try rotating the DC with GDLI as a leave in when the cold air hits soon. FYI...I love that the DC has a dose of shea as well!

Anyone else tried this or even seen it yet? Let me know!

    I had this in my hand yesterday too at Walmart and it smells so good I almost bought it thinking it might make a good replacement for the old formula of GFTN? But I love my Tresseme naturals right now as well and it's cheaper for the amount I get. Let us know if you like it on your hair too.

    I was just wondering how this one would compare to the TN moisture. Looks like the ingredients may be similar, but I can't remember if the TN has Shea butter or sunflower oil?

    So I used this as a dc mixed with agave nectar (always in my dc mixes) and I loved it! My hair was SUPER moisturized! Didn't even use my fave leave in today and my hair was soft, springy and smooth... Gonna use it again. My hair really needed this with the low-dews rolling in...

    I'm wondering that too. TN NM is the best RO for me, hands down. No matter what else I try, I always find my way back to it. So i'd love to hear from anyone who's used both.

    These are the ingredients for TN NM:

    Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyrceride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Diemthlyamine, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Fragrance, Caprylyl Glycol, Aspartic Acid, Lauroyl Lysine, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid.


    And the Giovanni (re-posted for easier comparison):

    Aqua (Purified Water), Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex, Fragrance, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Avocado Oil, Lychee Chinensis Fruit Extract, Olive Fruit Oil, Chenopodium Quinoa Flower/Leaf Extract, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Sodium Benzoate.

    I have ordered some to try since on really on the lookout for new RO/DT. I've spotted them on the odd website here in the UK but lots of sites that sell Giovanni don't have them quite yet. The site I got mine from had one conditioner and one DT treatment. Copied and pasted ingredients from retail website so worth checking on bottle to be sure, apologies if below list is not accurate. Hope I'm right in thinking they are protein free or protein low, at least mainly moisture!

    Giovanni 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Deep Deep Moisture Hair Mask 142ml

    Aqua (Purified Water), Cetearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Guar-Hydrosypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Chlorophyllin Copper Complex, Polysorbate 60, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Chromium Hydroxide Green, Fragrance, *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Litchi (Lychee) Chinensis Fruit Extract, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, *Chenopodium Quinoa Flower/Leaf Extract, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Benzoate.

    Giovanni 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Conditioner 241ml

    Aqua (Purified Water), Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex, Fragrance, *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Litchi (Lychee) Chinensis Fruit Extract, *Oleo Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil,*Chenopodium Quinoa Flower/Leaf Extract, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Benzoate. USDA Certified Organic.

    Glycerin being so high up isn't the greatest in current dew points but since they are rinse out products it should be ok. Might be more flexible use in summer. The ingredients look the same for each, is that weird?

    Hope they're good!!

    I've noticed that with a lot of product lines: the RO and mask are identical except for the price. (HE HIS and Neutrogena TM come to mind). The same is often true of RO and LI condishes (YTC, I'm looking at you).

    Almost all the products mentiioned on the board can be found in the Product Reviews section, where you can find ingredient and attribute lists. Very helpful if you're sensitive to something in particular. The Giovanni RO is here: Giovanni 2chic Avocado & Olive Oil Ultra-Moist Conditioner - NaturallyCurly.com

    Fortunately for us, it IS protein-free! (Apparently, the mask is too new to have its own page yet.)

    Let us know how you like them! I used the RO this morning, so I'll give feedback once my hair's finished drying.

    I just saw a 24 oz. size of this at Whole Foods for I think $15.99 - I've got a $2 coupon so this wouldn't be bad. I've still got a full tube of this so probably should wait it bit - this is where I get into trouble!

    You just got ME in trouble! I didn't even know the larger size existed, but now I'm finding excuses to go to WF : )

    The tube will go fast anyway, so we really *should* have a backup ...

    BTW, where'd you get the coupon? The only ones I've ever seen for Giovanni are the peel-off type on the bottle itself.

    Yep, got the coupon off the tubes I bought! They are really tiny and easy to lose. And I just checked and I have two tubes of the conditioner and one shampoo stashed right now. I am ridiculous. :-|

    Thanks! But upon further investigation, I've discovered that it has a cone:

    Aqua (Purified Water), Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Glucoside, Dimethicone, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Citric Acid, Fragrance, Glycol Distearate, Polysorbate 20, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Benzoate, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex, Phenoxyethanol, *Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Litchi (Lychee) Chinensis Fruit Extract, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, *Chenopodium Quinoa Flower/Leaf extract, *Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil.

    That's the second one this week - I was all set to pick up the EverCurl poo until I realized it has cones and polyquats :banghead: But I'll keep an open mind on the Giovanni, because the other ingredients are so good.

    What the heck? Dimethicone in the shampoo but not in the conditioner - seems so backward to me. I usually read every label but I missed that one. I have been using some stuff with cones lately - been straightening some - but this one I didn't expect! I will keep that in mind thanks!

    2c/3a - fine - medium porosity & density
  • lucyprimroselucyprimrose Posts: 166Registered Users
    Update, the deep conditioner/mask version of this has a cone - dimethicone is high up on the list!

    This wasn't listed in any of the ingredients lists I saw online (copied and pasted above), but it is on the bottle. I haven't used it yet, but I hate it when this happens. I'll check the bottle for the normal conditioner and get back.
    :angry1:

    eta - the conditioner looks cone free but I've updated the mask ingredients in post higher up this page.
