Of course you know how important it is to protect your skin and hair from the elements during the summer months, but sometimes you just don’t know the best way to do so. To make your life easier, we have made a detailed list of our summer essentials and why they are so important.
Lavender Singular Note
Did you know that the natural aroma of lavender acts as a bug repellant? Dab your ankles, wrists, neck, etc with a few drops of this essential oil to keep the bugs away or mix a few drops in with your body lotion to provide all over protection. If you are reading this too late and have already been bitten, dab a drop of Aveda’s Lavender Singular Note onto your bites to provide relief of itch and fast healing.
What a great way to keep the bugs away without resorting to harmful chemicals! In its convenient 30ml sized bottle, this product is a must have for all summer adventures.
Intensive Hydrating Masque
Aveda’s Intensive Hydrating Masque hydrates skin with a blend of aloe, kelp and lavender. This oil-free masque is made from plant-derived humectants and soothes dry, over-exposed skin. This product is typically used as a facial masque but what you may not know about it is that it can be used all over your body!
Apply Intensive Hydrating Masque to sunburns to help them heal quickly and recover from the damage caused by the sun’s harmful rays. The rosewater in this product helps to calm red, irritated skin and the intensive moisturizing properties are so hydrating that it’s the equivalent of eight glasses of water for your skin.
Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight
This brand new product from Aveda is designed to progressively loosen curls to provide a naturally straight style. After five consecutive uses of Aveda’s Naturally Straight, your hair will stay straight for up to three washes on its own because of the plant-derived fibers that create a locking layer that holds your hair straight.
Do you have to fight with your hair to avoid frizz in the hot, humid weather? Naturally Straight uses organic cassava root to form a barrier against intense humidity and allow you to keep your hair looking great no matter what you’re doing this summer!
Sun Care Products
Protective Hair Veil
Did you know that the sun’s UV rays can severely damage your hair’s integrity and fade its color? Aveda’s Protective Hair Veil uses wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils to provide a natural filter against UVA and UVB rays as well as green tea extract, organic sunflower seed oil and vitamin E to protect against free radicals that can cause hair to become dry and damaged.
Simply spray Aveda’s Protective Hair Veil onto your hair after styling to provide 16 hours of water-resistant sun and free radical protection for your hair. As an added bonus, this product can be used to detangle knotted hair because of the highly conditioning organic shea butter, coconut and palm oils used as ingredients!
After-Sun Hair Masque
This creamy masque helps to restore your hair after exposure to the sun’s UV rays and free radicals. Like the Protective Hair Veil, this product uses green tea extract, organic sunflower seed oil and vitamin E to protect your hair. The tamanu oil, organic shea butter and coconut and palm oils work together to restore moisture and moriku protein is used to strengthen weakened hair.
Hair and Body Cleanser
This cleanser is specially formulated to remove built up chlorine, salt and product that can weigh your hair down and cause dryness. There are minerals found in chlorinated pools that cause discoloration of the hair so Aveda’s Hair and Body Cleanser uses corn-derived chelator to remove these minerals from your hair. As an added bonus, the Hair and Body Cleanser contains tamanu oil and organic coconut oil to maintain moisture balance.
Remember to keep yourself protected against bugs, UV rays, humidity and free radicals this summer and if you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask our educated professionals either in store or by telephone at (506)642-7725.
