Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner: Why I Love It
I had Never Tried Aveda...
Up until a few years ago, I didn't even use conditioner on my hair. I would simply shampoo my hair, dry it with a towel, and go. Then, an episode of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" actually convinced me that I should give hair conditioner a try. At first, I just grabbed a bottle of Herbal Essences conditioner at my local grocery store, and after using it for awhile, I really could feel a noticeable difference in the quality and "health" of my hair. I probably would have been happy using grocery store hair conditioner forever, but then someone gave me a gift card to Aveda for Christmas. I enjoy shopping at higher-end bath & body stores like The Body Shop and L'Occitane, so I was excited to spend my Aveda gift card.
My In-Store Aveda Experience
When I went to the Aveda store, the salesperson was very friendly and told me a little bit about all the different products they had. When I told her I wasn't sure what I should get, she recommended I try out the Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner. I saw the $16 price tag for a relatively small tube of hair conditioner, and I told her I was skeptical. But she pointed out that the Pure Abundance Conditioner smelled great and has ingredients like kaolin clay from England and acacia gum from Africa, so it was a high quality product. Since I had a gift card, I decided to get the Aveda conditioner and give it a try.
I Was Surprised the First Time!
The first time I used the Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner in my hair, I was very surprised. The product smelled even better when I applied it to my hair in the shower than it did in the tube. It was a great sensory experience! The Aveda hair conditioner also felt very thick and I only needed a small amount to cover all my hair. I could see I would use much less of the Pure Abundance conditioner than the grocery store brand, which would help account for the price difference in the long run. When I rinsed the Aveda conditioner out of my hair, my hair felt very moist and healthy, while still feeling clean and not at all greasy.

This Product Stood the Test of Time!
As I used up the the rest of the tube of the Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner, I absolutely fell in love with the product. It made my hair feel great, and the small tube from the Aveda store lasted forever. Trying this product really made a believer out of me. If you have been looking for a high quality, never-tested-on-animals conditioner for your hair, I would highly recommend heading to your local Aveda store and trying this out. For less than twenty bucks, I guarantee it will be one of the best conditioners you will ever try.
