Did you know on the Aveda website you can go and learn all about the different ingredients that make up our products? I love that Aveda has this open dialogue about what goes into their products, and why! Today I want to focus on QUINOA. 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!
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.
