Mama Palooza- Elava Botanik Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Congratulations! Winner  #62 Jennifer T.


"Firmly planted on the belief that what goes on our bodies should be as pure and environmentally-responsible as what we put in our bodies."

Elava Botanik's line of haircare takes natural and organic to a new level. They are the only products in the world that are made with 100% natural, certified-organic fruit pulp. In fact their products are so fresh and pure that they all have a "fresh until" date printed on them just like produce you purchase at the supermarket. By using 100% natural essential plant oils the products remain shelf-stable for up to 10 months. All of their products are completely non toxic and contain no parabens, chlorides, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, preservatives or other chemicals. They are also allergen and gluten free. When tested within a salon environment for over a four year period Elava products were found to:
  • Inhibit UVA oxidation on colored hair, which increased the longevity of color treatment and created a healthier shine.
  • Promoted hair growth and cell renewal.
  • Added body and smooths hair by creating moisture where needed. 
  • Improved hair strength and structure. 
Elava Botanik's Shampoo and Conditioners come in three different varieties depending on hair type. Papaya for normal hair and frequent washing, Mango for fine and colored hair and Avocado for thick and colored hair. I was given the Avocado Shampoo and Conditioner to try out and was a little unsure about it at first. I do not have thick nor dry hair, in fact my hair is thin and tends to get oily quickly. I was afraid because Avocado is an oily fruit that this shampoo and conditioner would make my hair even more flat and oily then it can be. Guess what? I was wrong! First I would like to say that the texture of this shampoo is very different then what I am use to. It does not lather up in a soapy way but is more like the texture of yogurt. You are suppose to leave the shampoo on for 2 to 3 minutes rather then rinse it out immediately. I am assuming it is so your hair absorbs the nutrients and vitamins. After I washed the shampoo out my hair was really soft. I hadn't even used the conditioner yet and it already felt conditioned! The conditioner is suppose to remain in your hair for 3 to 5 minutes.  I decided to leave it on for the entire 5 minutes to get the full effect. Let me tell you I was very impressed with these hair products. They left my hair super soft and silky and not at all weighed down like I feared. I think this particular variety of shampoo conditioner would be great for someone with dry and damaged hair because it does a great job of moisturizing.
