Product Review: Giovanni Eco Chic Hair Care

Posted Oct 13 2012 5:19pm

I like to fancy myself a low maintenance kind of gal.  There is one major  exception and I own it:  my hair.  I have fine curly hair.  When I was little, my mother cut the knots out of my ‘fro because they were so extreme.  When I was 12, I was told by a guy I had a crush on that my hair “looked like a poodle.”  And I don’t think he meant it in a best in show kind of way.

I agree college me,  not my best look

What many people don’t realize about curly hair, is that it has a mind of it’s own and you just have to go with it.   I liked my curly hair about 10% of the time.  And then it would rain and I would hate it all over again.  I’ve gone through phases of wearing it curly, straightening it, and even relaxing it (oh my – never again).  I’ve finally reached an impasse/agreement with my hair:  I wash it and blow dry every 3rd day, and in return, she cooperates unless the weather takes over her logic and reason (humidity is an old lover from my hair’s past who she just can’t seem to shake).

My hair is very fine, but also dry.  So there’s a balance needed to achieve volume without dryness and moisture without flat head.  I don’t need pageant hair, but I would like to avoid this:

flat oily hair
this was done on purpose

A good hair day puts me in a better mood.  I’d choose fancy hair with jeans over a fancy outfit any day of the week.  So it’s my goal to have as many good hair days  as possible.  High maintenance baby.

I find that having a rotation of shampoos and conditioners works best with my hair – keeps her on her toes. I’m always looking for new ones to introduce and I found some permanent fixtures in my rotation in Giovanni Eco Chic Hair Care . The hair care line is produced in California, is cruelty free, and is free of: sulfates (which can thin hair), artificial fragrance, parabens, and phthalates. And all of their hair care products retail for under 10 bucks. Love it.

I used the Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Shampoo and the Smooth As Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner .  I could smell the peppermint and rosemary from the shampoo (delicious) and it tingled on my scalp (in a good way) as I washed my hair.  The conditioner was thick without being too heavy and has a lovely citrus scent.

The verdict:  My hair felt clean without being dry.  It had volume and moisture.  Maybe I’m crazy but there seemed to be less frizz.  I love love love this pair of products.
