Summer is coming! Is your hair ready?

Summer is on its way and we want to prepare you to have the best hair experience possible! The beautiful sunshine and the glorious shimmering pools are calling your name can and wreak havoc on your lovely locks. In this post, we are going to share with you some Aveda secrets that will keep your hair looking stunning and feeling healthy all summer long.

Sun Damage

We’ve all experienced that moment when you’ve been at the pool all day lounging, getting a beautiful tan – then you go inside and brush your hair only to notice that all that “fun in the sun” has taken a toll on your once strong, healthy hair. As much as we love the sunshine, those UVA and UVB rays can damage the cuticle and even the inner layers of your mane but have no fear! Aveda has made provisions for you to not only take on these opponents – but come out looking and feeling fabulous! Cue Sun Care Protective Hair Veil…

Aveda’s hair veil is perfect for all hair types and is designed to protect your hair from harmful sun rays. Simply spray it on your damp or dry hair and voila, you have an invisible barrier made of wintergreen and cinnamon bark oil watching guard over your every strand. And to top it off, it leaves your hair with the irresistibly fresh scent of certified organic neroli, ylang ylang and cistus! (All you need to know is that it smells like heaven.)
Side-note: This product will not only keep your hair looking fresh, but it will also protect your scalp! We recommend spraying it before and after going in the sun or swimming. If you want silky, healthy, and especially knot free hair this summer, this product is for you!

Chlorine damage

All those pool parties can be evil on your ends, drying them out and making the brittle. And if you have blonde hair, you might even notice a green tone to your once bright and beautiful locks. Not a welcome gift. But again, no need to worry, Aveda’s got you covered….

Sun Care Hand and Body Cleanser – This color safe product gently removes any trace of chlorine and salt residue. After it cleanses the hair, it nourishes with Tamanu and coconut oil. It also has green tea, organic sunflower oil and vitamin E. Who doesn’t love green tea and coconut oil? I know how amazing this product sounds; you’re probably ready to buy it, right? Well it gets even better….it can also be used for your body. That’s right. Apply this product onto wet skin, rub it in, and get clean!

After care Love your hair!

We’re sure you’ve been hydrating and protecting your body and skin all day with ample amounts of water and sun-screen, but what about your hair? After all is said and done (in the sun and surf) it’s time to hydrate and repair your parched, sun exposed hair with Aveda’s Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque.
Free radicals are all around us. They can come from a number of sources including the sun and air and water pollution. A free radical is a molecule with an extra electron. Now don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being ‘extra’, just not with electrons. These electrons attack other cells in your body causing (amongst other things) your skin to prematurely age and your hair to be dry and brittle! How do I prevent this chaos you ask? Behold the blue tube! A tube full of awesomeness! Here’s how it works:

Morikue™ protein helps restore hair weakened by sun and chlorine exposure
Certified organic shea butter and tamanu, coconut and palm oils moisturize hair
Anti-oxidant blend of vitamin E, green tea seed and organic sunflower seed oils helps defend hair again free radicals
Wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils help protect hair from damaging effects of the sun
