Our absolute favourite hair salon indulgence is to get a wash and blow dry. There is nothing quite like having your tresses coiffed to perfection and little raises our heads higher than bouncy, voluminous hair. Unfortunately, outside the salon, it’s a little harder to achieve that squeaky clean, super vivacious look. For one, the levels of volume are near impossible to recreate without a good several brushes, an hour spent with the hairdryer and some seriously strong arms; blow-drying is a workout in itself!

In our quest for fabulous hair we’ve come across many “volume” enhancing products, however the best results we’ve experienced so far came from Aveda’s Invati Solutions range. Developed as a range to combat the increasing concern of hair thinning amongst women, the range has proven to offer far more than what it says on the tin.

We’re positively in love with the exfoliating shampoo. Whilst facial exfoliating has always been a staple in our beauty regime, this was our first experience of an exfoliating shampoo and the results were simply fabulous. In the same way as a facial exfoliator, the shampoo cleanses and renews the scalp, using a wintergreen derived salicylic acid to gently exfoliate, removing sebum and product residue that can clog pores and combat that super fresh feeling.

Like all great exfoliators, this sets the base for the thickening conditioner, which is when the magic really happens. Arginine is the key ingredient, penetrating the hair shaft to strengthen and thicken the hair, giving the hair volume and bounce whilst the kukui nut oil helps add natural shine for a glossy finish.

Whilst achieving that Manhattan blowout on a daily basis might not be entirely viable, we can at the very least attain thicker, fuller looking hair and luxury volume at home.
