August Favorites: Thickening Tonic

We caught up with stylist Jasmine Barron from our Clackamas location to find out more about the Aveda fave with a big time cult following, Thickening Tonic! Thin haired girls listen up, because this is a product that you must have in your beauty cabinet!

Aveda Thickening Tonic Dosha salon Spa

How long have you been in the industry and why do you love Aveda products? I have been in the industry for 5 years now. And I chose Aveda because it is a company you can trust, a company you can stand behind.

What is Aveda Thickening Tonic? Thickening tonic is the best. First it has a thermal protectant in it which is amazing, because we need more of that then we realize. But what is does is actually thickens your hair, without adding frizz. 

What hair type is this product best for? Everyone, Literally everyone. It is such a great addition to your regular routine. 

How do you use it? So this is your first step after showering, because it has that thermal protectant you will want to apply before heat. Spray, 8-10 sprays from your new growth to your ends. I throw in an extra spray or two in my own hair because i just love the effect so much. The blow dry as usual, for added bonus round brushing will really give you extra body! The great thing is that even if you flat iron your hair straight, you still get extra body!


Is there any Pro-tips for using the product? Not really, all its magic is in the main use. I have used it in my hair dry before and i feel like it adds a little extra texture and maybe even takes away oil- but who knows! 

What is the difference between this product and the ever classic, Aveda Volumizing Tonic? Thickening Tonic is going to give you more of an overall, root to end, swell. So think fuller not just bigger. Volumizing Tonic is lift at the roots!  

Okay, what about Invati, what is the difference? Invati is actually helping aid in hair re-growth. So it is more for hair loss.


This month when you buy any one product  at $25+, you can grab Aveda Thickening Tonic for just $15 ( that is half off!) What would your product pick be?  Pure Abundance Style prep because you will get beautiful movement and fullness, plus double up on that thermal protectant!
