Review: Aveda Men Pure-formance Conditioner

I've been wanting to try Aveda products for awhile. I've been to a couple of their salons, and I heard that they have many vegan-friendly products. I recently acquired a sample of their Aveda Men Pure-formance Conditioner, so I put it to the test.

  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Leaves hair soft and smooth
  • Helps detangle
  • Gentle ingredients?
  • Nice, creamy texture
  • Salon price ($20/bottle)
This conditioner has a fairly strong fragrance, but it is a pleasant scent. The smell is a bit masculine, but I think women could use it, too. The conditioner itself is a great texture; creamy, but not too thick. It left my hair feeling silky and manageable. This product rates about a 4 on the EWG Skin Deep database, mainly due to the use of fragrance. It is available for retail sale in Aveda salons, which are pretty widespread. I was disappointed to see that the ingredients list wasn't posted on the website, but customer service was happy to provide it for me, as well as information on vegan products. If you are looking for a solid conditioner with and love a stronger, "salon" type of scent, this is a nice option.
