AVEENO NOURISH+ STRENGTHEN SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER REVIEW

I don't normally use shampoos with sulfates. Ever since I went sulfate free my hair just doesn't feel the same after washing with a sulfate full shampoo. But I decided to give Aveenos shampoo and conditioner duo a try since its supposed to be nourishing. I also some how received two sample pack duos.

What I found:
I received two sample duo packs a few months ago of this Aveeno line. I was super interested to try it until I read that the shampoo contains sulfates. After which it sat on the bottom of my samples box. Until I decided to give it a try this past month when I ran out of my favorite shampoo.
The first time I washed my hair with this I used both the conditioner and shampoo at the same time. When I used the duo together my hair felt super smooth after I washed them out. My hair wasn't left in the normal untangleable mess when I use a shampoo with sulfates. It was easy to run a comb through.
I always use a hair oil on my ends, then run my whole hand throughout my hair with the left over oil on my hand. My hair rarely gets greasy after I do that as long as I didn't just do a hair mask. The next day my hair was greasy. Which is an almost nice surprise considering the fact I used a shampoo with sulfates in it. 
I decided to try both the shampoo and conditioner separate so I can see the difference the two make. The shampoo I used with a regular sauve conditioner, green apple. It left my hair managable. I did use oil on my ends after the shower.  The next day my hair was greasy. Which I knew it was from the shampoo because that conditioner and oil is what I usually use with my sulfate free shampoo which I don't have super greasy hair next day after wash. 

The next hair wash I used my regular shampoo and the Aveeno conditions combo with my hair oil. My hair was not greasy the next day. My hair felt soft once dried after using the conditioner. The scent is okay for the conditioner but I prefer something more fruity and long lasting. 

In the end I determind that whatever is in the shampoo is making my hair greasy, which is super surprising since it's a sulfate shampoo.

Pros for shampoo:

  • Makes my hair managable 
Cons for shampoo: 

  • Contains sulfates
  • Makes hair greasy the next day
Pros for conditioner:

  • Conditions my hair
  • Makes my damaged hair manageable at the ends
  • Smells nice

Cons for conditioner:

  • Honestly this is a nice conditioner but very run of the mill and generic.

Verdict: I'm not a fan of the shampoo due to it containing sulfates and making my hair greasy so pass on the shampoo. I do like the conditioner because it does moisturizes my hair. The conditioner for me is meh. Sells for about $7each at your local drugstores, walmart and targets.
