16 Jul Protect your color and our ecosystems!

Product focus: Color conserve daily color protect

Color conserce daily color protect

Keeping your color fresh and enjoying the summer sun is no easy task. Coming from a former red head I could not rave any more about color conserve daily color protect, its a life saver(even though I am now a blonde I still use color protect daily)! It will protect  your hair from serious summer fadage, but as with all AVEDA products it also gives back to the environment in which it came from. You can protect your color while protecting ecosystems! Did you know AVEDA color conserve daily color protect contains Larch tree extract? Our larch tree extract is salvaged from wood chips created by responsibly sourced lumber processing—which takes protection of ecosystems. Soil, water quality, wildlife habitat and tree regeneration into consideration. The chips are then sold as mulch—so nothing goes to waste. So all in all this product is amazing for your hair and mother earth, it’s a win-win!

Stop by your local AVEDA store/salon and try it out!
