Does Invati by Aveda Really Work?


Does Invati work?Invati by Aveda is presented as a solution to thinning hair using natural ingredients and a variety of products. It’s somewhat rare to see a product like this that can be bought online, but also in-store, and with the help of a consultant. It’s been making strides and gaining in popularity so we explored further to see what the fuss is about, and whether it really works or not.

Overview
When your hair starts to thin it can be a real blow to your confidence. Men’s hair care gets most of the attention, but more and more we’re seeing that it’s a common problem for women. Most of the time women are added as an addendum to male hair care, so it’s nice to see a product that is specifically formulated to help treat a woman’s hair. It’s also nice that they are acting responsibly as a company and are following the Cradle to Cradle concept.

The Claim
Invati claims that their products can help breathe life and vitality back into limp and thinning hair using all natural ingredients. They stress that 97% of their ingredients are naturally sourced, and that it is safe for all types of hair. User feedback suggests that some hair types might be better suited for it than others, but for the most part this claim seems valid.

The Hype
Products designed to help with thinning hair don’t need any hype. There’s already a motivated market that is ready to pounce on anything showing signs of working. With the relatively good feedback that this has been getting it’s no wonder that more and more people are wondering if it really works. Since this is developed and targeted at women it’s getting that extra boost of buzz because we’re pretty good at letting each other know when a product is a good buy or not.

The Cost
The Invati shampoo and conditioner are $24 each, with the scalp revitalizer at $60 for a package price of $108 which includes free standard shipping. One nice feature is that rather than stick you in an involuntary auto-ship program, they let you opt into one if you want to make sure that you’ll have a ready supply. They let you decide whether you want to receive it every 30, 45, 60, or 75 day increments. Or you can just choose to buy it as a one-off purchase and see how it goes from there.

The Commitment
Hair care is one of those things that you really have to stick with if you want to see the best results. Even on products that say they’re meant to work quickly, you’ll want to make sure that you follow the recommended directions and keep it going over a longer period of time. Perhaps you might see some early improvement, but try to reserve your judgment for a few weeks and then make up your mind from there. With these products you’re recommended to use them daily, and as a package deal, which may require more involvement on your part if you’re used to less frequent use.

Evaluation
The makers of Invati seem to really be doing their best at bringing you quality ingredients that are known for their healing properties. For example, their shampoo and conditioner contain Ayurvedic herbs that are meant to cleanse and stimulate the scalp. Ayurveda is an ancient art of well-being originating in India and focuses on bringing the body to a more natural state so that it can use its own natural healing abilities. This would be much more preferable than using a product with a lot of Space Age man-made ingredients that end up irritating the scalp and are so new they haven’t been tested.

It’s nice that you can visit a salon and even have an initial consultation on the course of treatment you should take. Most products like this make you go through a process of trial and error, picking out things that you think are best, trying them out to see how they fare, and then keeping what works and losing what doesn’t. Having someone guide you through the initial selection process is definitely a feature many of us would appreciate, as it cuts out a lot of wasted time and money.

Final Invati Review

Of course results will vary for each person that tries Invati, and this is due to a multitude of factors. There will be some that get a consultation at an Aveda salon and would likely have better luck with it than someone that just starts using it without an in-office visit. Plus there will be those that only try it once or twice, compared to those that use it as directed for longer. With all of that taken into account it seems that the consensus is that it’s likely to produce acceptable results for most users, earning it our Thumbs Up review.

Our Recommendation
There are several ways to help out a case of thinning hair, and cleansing and purifying the scalp represents an outward-in approach. Just remember that a big portion of the health of your hair is decided before it even reaches the surface, so be sure that you are getting proper nutrients to your hair with a proper diet, or perhaps supplements designed for that purpose. Taking a holistic approach is the way to go, and that even includes things like reducing your stress levels, and possibly detoxing your body through cleanses.

What do you think? Does Invati work or not?

I dread the day that I’ll wake up and realize that I’m going bald… I don’t want that and I know if it happens my confidence might never recover from it. My friend tells me that your hair thins before you go bald. Can anyone confirm this? My hair’s been getting thinner and thinner over the past couple of years and now I look like I barely have hair.

From what I know there is a rare condition which thins your hair at first and eventually makes you go bald, but it’s very rare and there are treatments for that. If your condition’s very serious I’d suggest you go see a doctor, but if you don’t think it’s too serious then try out some reputable hair health restoring products first.

What condition is that? Hair loss is very frightening to me too, but a lot of people have to deal with it.

I have low thyroid and it has cause my hair to become thinner and more brittle. I have lost a lot of volume. i am seeing a doctor, and taking thyroid hormone for a couple of months as well as iron, Vitamin D and B supplements. I feel like I am still losing hair. I have a lot of stress (and this–figuring out my optimal thyroid treatment and diet– adds to it tremendously.)

My mom bought me the Aveda Invati system as a gift, since I’ve been so depressed. I am too scared to try it. The reviews on amazon.com are mixed, and I can’t afford to have something make me lose even more hair.

I’ve been wearing a hat every day to work. I hope it’s not hurting my hair. I wish we could all just wear hats and wigs with no questions asked.

My late 30′s have become the worst time of my life so far because of the hair loss and depression. My family is tired of me complaining and thinks I have “enough” hair. I can tell how spare it has gotten though, especially the front and sides. I am not comfortable in my own skin anymore. I hope and pray for success for anyone facing these issues!

I have been using the shampoo,conditioner and the scalp revitalizer set of Invati since 2/4/14 and am surprised and disappointed in the hair loss that I have ensued. I am afraid to continue with this product because of the amount of hair that I have lost. The consultant that I conversed with in the store gave me high hopes that did not turn out as I expected. Any more ideas? Just got comment that duplicate comment detected. This is the first time that I’m writing to you. Does Aveda not want to hear comments? I am a long time user of your cleansing products.
