AVEDA’S CHERRY ALMOND COLLECTION & ADVENT CALENDAR

MY husband gave this new AVEDA CHERRY ALMOND COLLECTION  the thumbs up for the smell alone. I, on the other hand, have an aversion to all things marzipan-y, which is what this smells like. If you are a Bakewell fan, you are going to love it!

The new collection is 98 per cent naturally derived, silicon-free, and vegan. The two products – Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo and Conditioner, have been formulated to leave your hair soft, shiny, and bouncy. There’s cherry blossom extract and sweet almond oil in there to restore softness and shine, from roots to end.

The 100 per cent naturally derived aroma has been crafted with 38 plant and flower essences, and is an Aveda classic. If you love it, you love it. It is not for me!

The pearl gel creme Cherry Almond Softening Shampoo (£15.50) uses Babassu and Coconut derived ingredients to deeply,yet gently cleanse hair. Naturally derived *SweetAlmondOil, rich in natural Omega9 and Omega6 fats combined with Cherry Blossom extract work  together to provide a daily dose of emollients and vital nutrients .

The rich Cherry Almond Softening Conditioner (£17) is a cream formula, with with certified Organic Coconut Oil and Shea Butter supports to deeply condition to help restore softness and shine with effortless tangling. As opposed to using synthetic silicones to deliver softness, Aveda’s Research & Development team developed a blend with these two hero-ingredients, creating a multi-faceted combination that mimics the performance and after-feel of silicones, without the build-up.

Both products are great for all hair lengths.


If you are an Aveda fan, then you will love their Advent Calendar – or Limited Edition Christmas Box (£79). Treat yourself  t0 12 Days of Great Hair, Naturally, with 12 products to cleanse, style, and treat your hair, before or after the Christmas party season. They all come in a gorgeous re-useable box, and there is a mix of full, travel and sample size – and five of their 10 best-selling products.
