CLOSED - Solavie Desert Hair Care Duo Pack Review and Giveaway

Once again I received an opportunity to try some great hair care products. This time it was the Solavie Desert Hair Care Duo that included Hair & Body Wash and Hair Nourish & Style. The cool thing about this product is that the Shampoo is also a Body Wash and the Hair Nourish is also a Styling Gel.

Solavie is the first unisex, climate-specific skin and hair care line. Solavie created it to adapt to the environmental conditions rather than traditional skin or hair types. There are six different lines of hair and body products: Desert, Mountains, Urban, Shore, Tropics and Plains. Within each category are uniquely formulated creations of Face Wash, Face Nourish, Body Nourish, Hair & Body Wash and Hair Nourish & Style. Key ingredients include mineral-rich volcanic spring water sourced especially for Solavie®, potent anti-oxidants, and naturally-occurring phytonutrients from plants native to each Enviro-type. Each formula contains elements of and ingredients from the specific area that you’ll be visiting.

Basically if you are traveling to weather that is dry then you might want to try the Desert Duo. If you live in the city then the Urban Duo is the product to have. This is great because in my case my hair is naturally wavy. If I travel to a humid area my hair becomes frizzy. If I go somewhere with low humidity it is limp and lifeless. But with Solavie, I can chose the line that best suits the environment and not my hair type and it will make it behave. That's pretty cool.

Solavie's double concentrated formulas are made from all natural ingredients using native plant phyto-nutrients and even the bottles are made from 100% re-used or recyclable materials. Solavie also shows global responsibility in supporting 3rd world handicrafts and much of it's profits are donated to sustainable charities through Solavie Second Nature Foundation. And you all know that I am all about any company who is taking responsibility and helping the environment.

I used Solavie a few times and really liked it. The Desert Duo, which has yucca, sage oils and aloe, smelled fantastic. It has a clean and fresh smell that I loved. It didn't lather up as much as regular shampoo and that could be because they use natural ingredients but it cleaned my hair really well. I also used it as my body wash and it felt terrific. I am not sure about how the Hair Nourish is also styling gel so I just used it as conditioner. It rinsed out well and left my hair soft which was great since I recently colored it and it has been sort of dry.

I am so popping these into my luggage when I travel as well. The Solavie products snap together thus making handy dandy! The unique design keeps them together and it is small enough to possibly take in your carry on luggage. I often take my own shampoo when I travel because sometimes hotel shampoo is the pits. And now it will be easy to take this along.

I would recommend it especially if you travel. It's nice to know that these products will help your hair adapt to the environment. If you want to try Solavie products they are available at natural products stores, pharmacies, and natural beauty counters nationwide; and may be purchased online at http://www.solavie.com/. MSRP ranges from $10 to $38 CDN/US.

You all know that when I get a product to review, I love when I get one to give away and Solavie has been generous enough to have an extra Desert Duo for one of my readers. YAY! Now you all know the drill. Read the rules, follow the rules and enter!! Good Luck!
