At last! A vegan hair care range that loves my hair. After years of searching health shops, organic stores and trying out every vegan-by-accident hair product I could lay my hands on, I eventually decided to step out of my financial comfort zone and shop online for the real deal. No vegan hair product I have tried has acted even remotely like their mainstream equivalent. Not even my first trials of the so-called professional vegan hair care ranges came close. Until I discovered Giovanni.
Giovanni was created by a Beverly Hills salon owner. His products are inspired by nature and ensure the high performance required by his influential Southern California clientelle. This is a perfect example of how the fusion of ethics and professionalism can achieve head turning results.
Although they offer a wide variety of products for all hair types, the products I selected worked perfectly for my hair. I need a range that will moisturise thick hair, calm and lighten effusive body, and straighten unmanageable kinks.
At last a vegan shampoo that actually lathers and cleans very effectively without your hair ending up in a tangle of agitated hair follicles. My hair feels smooth and light after the shampoo. The subtle scents of grapefruit, apple and aloe extracts lift your mood as you wash your day out of your hair.

Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner
The conditioner is thick and, unlike any other vegan option I have tried, it is possible to massage it into your hair and then continue your shower, without it pouring into your eyes or burning your scalp. My hair felt instantly nourished and happy during the treatment and invigorated after rinsing.
