Product Review: Aveda Sun Care Line

The summer months are soon approaching and I am getting ready for my fun in the sun.  Unfortunately by the end of summer my hair looks like a complete tangled mess.  My hair color is who knows what and the frizzies are all throughout.  What is a girl to do?  My answer this summer will be all Aveda.  Aveda has just come out with their Aveda Sun Care line to help protect your hair against the stresses of summer sun, salt water, and chlorine.  The line includes a shampoo, a hair masque, and a uv protector spray.  I decided to review the hair masque and the uv protector spray. 

 

Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil
Description:   Leave in sun protection spray for your hair.  The protective hair veil is supposed to protect your against the dangerous UV rays from the sun.  Think sunscreen for your hair.  This product includes Sunflower Seed Oil and Coconut Oil
Texture:  The Protective Hair Veil comes in a spray bottle and when pumped is a light mist.  
Smell:  Aveda is known for their natural Pure-Fume aromas which I love.  It has a natural combination of citrus and flowers.  It is not over empowering. 
Application:  I sprayed this product on my hair when it was wet and when it was dry.  I honestly saw now difference in the end results.    
Results:  The Sun Care Protective Hair Veil is an amazing product.  I tried the product for 2 weeks and not only did it protect my hair color against the UV rays it also left my hair a little softer and shinier.  I give this product a thumbs up!
Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque
Description:   The After-Sun Hair Masque can be used anytime however it is specifically designed to give life back to sun dried, chlorinated hair.  The after-sun formula with morikue protein, tamanu oil, and organic coconut oil moisturizes sun-exposed hair.  The anti-oxidant blend of green tea, organic sunflower oil and vitamin E helps protect against free radical damage 
Texture:  The hair masque is a surprising light formula for a hair masque.  It is thick enough to condition but not heavy enough to weight down your hair. 
Smell:  It is the same citrus flowery smell as the Hair Veil  
Application:  This product is to be used after shampooing.  I put about a quarter size on the palm of my hands and rubbed through my hair.  I then combed it through.  I left it on for about  4 minutes and then rinsed through.  The application was like any other hair masque, however, the texture was a little lighter then others I have tested.     

Results:  The Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque is a great accompaniment to your overall sun protection regime for your hair.  My hair was noticeably softer and looked less damaged.

Dye Your Gray’s Away

Sarah’s tip of the week! 

tea-bagsGray hair peeping out from your temples?  Make a thick, thick tea and dab the tannin on your grays for a quick fix (lighter tea for blonds, darker for brunettes).  A dab of permanent dye to tide you over until you have the full head of hair done is even better.

Aveda and the Environment

 

aveda-c2c-product-family-medium-high-res1Global sustainability leader Aveda announced it has become the first beauty company in the world and only the second U.S. company in any industry to receive a Cradle to Cradle (C2C) sustainability endorsement, with seven Aveda products achieving Gold Level C2C certification.

Today’s endorsement comes from sustainability consultancy McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, LLC (MBDC), the firm that pioneered the concept of Cradle to Cradle design, and the implementation of eco-effective design principles. Cradle to Cradle product certifications, completed by MBDC and its affiliate, the Hamburg, Germany-based Environmental Protection and Encouragement Agency (EPEA), recognize Aveda’s recent extraordinary efforts to develop products and processes that conform to the world’s most advanced standards for intelligent design, sustainable stewardship and reuse of materials.

C2C endorsement recognizes companies’ efforts in developing environmentally-intelligent products with a goal of eliminating waste entirely. EPEA, founded by life-cycle expert, Professor Michael Braungart, and MBDC, co-founded by Braungart and renowned designer and green architect, William McDonough, are the global leaders in certification of sustainable processes, products and services. 

The endorsement by MBDC adds to Aveda’s impressive record of environmental sustainability. Throughout Aveda’s 30-year history, the company’s accomplishments have included the pioneering use of wind energy in the beauty industry, leadership in the use of recyclable packaging and support of organic agriculture.

“As the first beauty company to achieve Cradle to Cradle endorsement, Aveda is recognized as a leader in intelligent design,” said Aveda President, Dominique Conseil. “Designing and manufacturing products can be environmentally responsible when environmental goals are factored into the concept at the very beginning. At Aveda, we believe that authentic beauty cares for the environment which we inherited from elders, and will leave to generations that follow.”

Congrats Aveda!
