Comforting tea

The moment you step into an AVEDA salon or Experience center you are greeted with a warm, delicious cup of comforting tea. It is deliciously sweet and flavorful without having any sugar or added-flavors. I would like to share a few  benefits as well as ingredient information, enjoy!

Peppermint and Licorice root give this a wonderful blend of sweet and refreshing. Drinking peppermint will help relieve stress as well as help clear up and congestion you may have. Peppermint is full of vital minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and vitamin A & C which will help with cold and flu. Licorice root is known for its anti-inflammatory properties which can help ease joint pain. There are many health reasons to drink AVEDA tea, but my #1 favorite is because it is absolutely delicious!

The story behind Quinoa

QUINOA

So we all know that Quinoa is delicious but what does it do for our hair and where does it come from? When you are perusing your nearest AVEDA experience center you can find this key ingredient in the Damage Remedy line.

“Considered sacred by the Inca Indians for its valuable life-supporting nutrients, quinoa has flourished in the Peruvian Andes for over 5,000 years. Known in Quechua, the language of the Incas, as chisiya mama or “mother grain,” quinoa is very rich in protein more than all other grains. Today, Aveda sustainably sources quinoa for the protein in our Damage Remedy™ restructuring hair care” -AVEDA.com

Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil Testimonial and Sourcing Story

If you haven’t experienced our new Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil (featured on our NYE Pictorial), you are for sure missing out.  I have been using the oil for about a month and when I don’t have it (like when I forgot to throw it in my suitcase on my last trip to Salt Lake City), I feel robbed!  My hair is thin and fine, yet the oil does not feel too heavy when I use the right amount.  (Yes, I have OVERDONE it, but when you experience the aroma of ginger lily, lavender, and bergamot, you will understand how this is possible!)  On my length of hair (very short), I really only need 1 drop.  I prefer to put it on my hair when it is dry, but you can also apply when wet.  Overall, it just gives me a soft, finished, nourished feeling to my hair, and I love it!

Quinoa has become a very popular go to healthy grain to add into our diets, but did you know it does wonders for your hair? Specifically restoring it back to proper health. Quinoa is good for your inside and out!
