Inspired to Live the Aveda Mission

, , , , , , , , ,

It’s Live the Mission at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institute Denver and recently our sister locations in Phoenix, Tucson and Provo have also celebrated, in the spirit of Earth Month, the environmental leadership aspects of the Aveda mission. Say what? Basically, we are just taking a moment to truly live and inspire our Aveda mission. In Denver, we took a closer look at the world of plastic pollution, inspired by a recent video shared by the Plastic Pollution Coalition, and decided to join the cause.

In terms of plastic pollution awareness, Aveda isn’t a stranger to this cause. Aveda has never used plastic microbeads in its products – which became very popular in other brands and recently was declared by the UNEP as a pollutant. Aveda instead …

Balancing Beauty and Wellness during Kapha Season

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Aveda is rooted in the traditions of Ayurveda, an ancient healing system originating in India. Ayurveda has influenced all forms of modern and alternative medical and healing practices and involves the art of balancing mind, body and being. Fast-forward to today, Aveda’s products and services are inspired by the idea of it’s founder, Horst Rechelbacher, that beauty and wellness work well together. Horst’s vision is also rooted in the Ayurvedic tradition. Products should be healthy and made of pure ingredients rather than toxic petrochemicals and synthetics. Products can be a part of the wellness process.

Ayurveda focuses on balance of the three doshas: Vata (air/infinity energy), Pitta (fire/water energy) and Kapha (water/earth energy). Each of us has a blend of all three of the doshas …

The story behind 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 …
