Game-Changing Curl and Coil Care!
Have you heard the news? Aveda’s Be Curly line has a new formula, new look, and – gasp, yes – new products! 
Meet Be Curly Advanced! 
Here at Aveda, we believe in the principle, “When you know better, you do better.” And that’s exactly what Be Curly Advanced is. We’ve reformulated the line to better suit wavy, curly, and coily hair needs.
If you’re currently using Be Curly products, here’s what you need to know to migrate from the old line to the new line.

Be Curly Shampoo 🟰 Be Curly Advanced Shampoo
Be Curly Co-Wash 🟰 Be Curly Advanced Co-Wash | Note: The bottle is larger than the shampoo bottle, based on consumer feedback. Our customers reported using more Co-Wash than Shampoo.
Be Curly Conditioner 🟰 Be Curly Advanced Conditioner
Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque 🟰 Be Curly Advanced Intensive Curl Perfecting Masque
Be Curly Style Prep 🟰 Be Curly Advanced Curl Perfecting Primer | Note: Yep, it’s a spray now!

Be Curly Hairspray 🟰 Air Control Hairspray + Nutriplenish Multi-Use Hair Oil | Note: We’ve discontinued the Be Curly Hairspray, and feel that truly the best alternative is a combination of Air Control and the Hair Oil.

(At least on April 22 for #NoWashDay) 
Why skip a wash? Because did you know that skipping one shower can save up to 6 gallons of water?! (Scroll down if you want to get to the product Directions…)
This #EarthMonth, by participating in No Wash Day, we want to bring awareness to the clean water crisis across the globe. We all deserve clean water 🫶 That’s why all 5 Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute campuses are raising money to donate to @charitywater as well as @westernresourceadvocates 🤝💚💙🌎🚰🚿🛁
Option 1: Scalp Solutions Refreshing Protective Mist. Spray at the roots of little sections of your dry, second-day hair. Rub it into roots to distribute product. Use brush to distribute product even more. Style hair like normal.
Option 2: Shampowder Dry Shampoo. Divide hair into small sections. Gently squeeze/compress the bottle until a puff of dry shampoo come out. Focus on areas that tend to get the most greasy. Rub into roots to distribute product, and brush through. Style hair like normal. May also apply night before you go to bed to absorb any sweat you might have during the night. 
Option 3: Pull beanie on head. Adjust to maximum comfort. *Beanie Optional’* Works with any hat! BONUS: Also the most time-efficient option 😉 Give yourself an excuse to get 20 minutes more sleep! 
What products do you use on a no-wash day? Do you have any great dry shampoo recommendations? Share them below👇#aveda #avedaartists #seconddayhair #conservation #motherearth #cleanwaterforall #cleanwater

What makes Aveda Institute different from other schools is that we deeply care about our students’ overall well-being. 
We believe that we learn our best, perform our best, and can be our best when we focus on complete wellness. This includes what we are feeding our bodies, minds, and even spirits. 
In fact, “Aveda” means “knowledge of the whole,” and that’s what Aveda’s founder, the late Horst Rechelbacher believed in. He believed in achieving beauty through wellness, and we uphold those same standards in our Institutes. 🫶
Drop a 💚 if complete wellness is something you’re passionate about!!
