Review & Giveaway: Solavie Facial & Hair Care Products! (CLOSED)


How many shampoos and conditioners do you have in your shower right now? If you're anything like me (and I'm assuming most women,) you probably have 3 or so that you rotate through. This could be to 'degunk' or because you have 37 different kinds of shampoo that you've gotten free.... or because you're always looking for that one magical shampoo that will make your hair awesome. No matter your reason, it's safe to say that we women are always on the lookout for that new hair product! I hate to break it to you - but did you know that the majority of all hair issues are caused by your environment, not by the wrong shampoo! (Why do you think your hair gets frizzy in the humidity?) With that being said, I'd love to tell you about a cool new product called Solavie. It helps your hair work with the environment to look its best -no matter what climate you are in! And it's 100% natural!

"Solavie introduces a radical new skin and hair care system harmonious with Nature and centered on your body’s reactions to environmental conditions in six different enviro-types® : Mountains, Urban, Tropics, Shore, Plains or Desert.
"

I was recently sent Solavie's Desert Hair & Body Wash and Hair Nourish & Style to review. Solavie Hair & Body Wash (yes, 2 in 1!) is super clean smelling and washes out really easily. It's not loaded up with fragrance or dyes or oils that leave your hair feeling heavy or gunked up. It rinsed out so well, that after I shampooed once I almost forgot I had already washed it! It also worked great as a body wash and left my skin feeling very clean - but not dry. You can also use a small amount of the Hair & Body Wash as a bubble bath!And the conditioner is so light, you can use it as a leave in (or wash out) conditioner, or use it as a styling product on dry hair!)

Don't you love when your products do double duty? Less to pack and easy to tote around- loves it! Solavie is about convenience, quality and simplicity. But my favorite part about Solavie is that it seemed to help my hair to dry faster than my usual shampoo & conditioner !!! I know it sounds a little crazy, but I swear to you it's true! Maybe it's the de-gunking or the purity of the product - but as soon as I got out of the shower and gave my hair a quick towel dry it started drying right up - no drips! But don't worry - the product itself didn't dry out my hair. It left it clean, healthy and shiny! And the best part? These products snap together like ying and yang for easy (and mess free) travel!

Solavie Eco-Global Skin/Hair Care System strives to be the most socially responsible, innovative personal care company serving the global marketplace. Nearly 100% of Solavie profits are invested in Solavie Second Nature Foundation with a mission to fund projects that promote sustainable business practices and the cultivation of talent in children around the world.

Buy it:Solavie is currently offering free shipping on all orders while supplies last!

Most shampoos are okay, but sometimes they leave my ultra-fine hair feeling oily and heavy. Gross.

My hair is naturally curly so it's hard to keep the frizz under control.

ProjectHope7 said...

I have frizzy curly hair which is hard to manage in the southern environment. I love my curls and waves, but have been looking for something affordable in hair care. and as natural as possible. I have found several products that cost and arm and leg... so am still looking. I have waist length hair also so I need double the amount of others.
