THE INVATI EFFECT: BEYOND BEAUTY

 

HOW THE SOURCING OF AN INGREDIENT IS HELPING WOMEN IN INDIA THRIVE

Professional hair styling model in India.

 

What better way to commemorate International Women’s Day (March 8th) than by celebrating the women of the Umbari villages in India — the sourcing grounds of the certified organic turmeric, which is a star ingredient of our new Invati Advanced™ Solutions for Thinning Hair? The story begins with our partnership with Nisarga, an Indian firm that grows Ayurvedic herbs.

Through our quest for the highest quality certified organic turmeric and our work with Nisarga, we learned that the Umbari villages near where we source our turmeric did not have access to clean water year-round. During the sweltering summer months, the women of the village had to spend up to six hours per day traveling to distant locations to collect drinking water, often finding once they arrived that the water source was unfit for consumption.

Aveda joined forces with our global Earth Month partner Global Greengrants Fund and AWARD (Action for Women and Rural Development) to improve the community’s local water system. Now the 800 Umbari villagers have easy access to clean water year-round — and the women of the villages have more time to spend with their families, earn income and receive and provide education.

KITCHEN GARDENS

Clean water was just the beginning. Through other grants made by Aveda through Global Greengrants Fund, AWARD has worked with the women of Umbari to develop Kitchen Gardens at households and schools to help address the village’s nutrition.

Prior to a three-year AWARD project funded by Aveda, Umbari villagers did not grow vegetables on their own land due to a shortage of water, seeds and agricultural knowledge. The only available vegetables were expensive and sold far away, so the villagers weren’t able to consume enough of the nutrients they needed. Today, thanks to this project, more than 200 female farmers and four schools have set up “kitchen gardens” utilizing the clean waste water from their kitchens to better nourish the community, and they prepare vegetables like spinach, pumpkin, and okra.

Says Melissa Chelminiak, Director of Mission, Partner and Stakeholder Engagement at Aveda, “The kitchen garden project in Umbari is an excellent example of how empowering women and their families to be able to better provide for themselves can have a substantial positive impact in their communities and beyond.”

2018 Hair Trends

A new year brings a chance for new changes. Here is a short list of hair trends forcasted for 2018. Do you dare to take a leap in a new direction?

1.Dirty Blondes

Think a nice root smudge and ends toned beige to gold for this look. A refreshing step away from the platinum trend of the past.

From Selena Gomez to Lily Collins, dirty blonde is the new A-list hair colour trend du jour. Keep the roots dark, and the lengths a warm golden blonde to get the trend bang on.
'It used to be about getting your hair whiter than white because it was so unattainable,' says BLEACH creative director and rainbow hair pioneer Alex Brownsell. 'Golden shades with warmer tones all over is the new platinum.'

2. Fringed Bobs

Bobs are timeless but this takes it a step away with a shattered fringe to change things up.

One of the scarier trends to try in 2018, we guarantee you'll be seeing bobs with fringes everywhere. Round face? Never fear, the look is surprisingly wearable, just avoid a blunt cut block fringe and opt for an undone situation instead. It looks way more casual.
'I like to keep my own fringe on the longer side, below my eyebrows which is a lot more versatile,' says Kim K's BFF and hairstylist Jen Atkin. ' If you decide you don't like it anymore you can just tuck it away behind your ears. Also, always go for a lighter fringe, a block fringe can feel heavy with a lob.'

3. Big Hair, Don’t Care

Welcome back 80’s, we were missing you. Use caution though, no more aquanet, big with softness and texture is key to pull it off today.

10 REASONS YOU SHOULD TRY DAMAGE REMEDY DAILY HAIR REPAIR

AVEDA’S  LEAVE-IN TREATMENT FOR DAMAGED HAIR WILL BE YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND

 

Let’s be honest: we’ve all got bad hair habits. Everyone’s a little bit guilty of mistreating their hair, whether it’s with regular highlights, frequent heat styling, or even the climate you live in. Getting your hair back in shape can take serious work, which is why we love our bestselling Damage Remedy hair care system; its compassionate care for your damaged hair leaves it soft and strong. One of our favorite products from the lineup is Daily Hair Repair, a leave-in treatment that instantly repairs and protects from heat styling.

 

We’re not alone in our love for the product, either. It’s one of the bestselling products on Aveda.com, and with a 4.8 star rating from guest reviews, it’s definitely got its fair share of fans. If you’ve never tried it before, let us convince you to make it a part of your styling routine today.

 

1. It’s easy to use. Just shake the tube gently before squeezing, then apply a small amount to your hair and work it through. We like to use it on damp hair after washing and conditioning, but you can use it however it works best for you.

2. It detangles! It gives your hair some TLC and makes it easier to brush through when it’s wet.

3. It protects your hair from breakage and damage due to heat styling temps of up to 450 degrees. We’ve all reached for the curling iron or flat iron one time too many, so if you’re addicted to heat styling, this is the product for you.

4. It smells great. Daily Hair Repair’s aroma is a blend of certified organic bergamot, mandarin, ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences. (It doesn’t smell like a medicinal hair treatment at all.)

5. Daily Hair Repair is 97% naturally-derived* and strengthens your hair. Did you know it contains quinoa protein? (*from plants, non-petroleum minerals and water. Learn more at Aveda.com.)

6. It provides INSTANT repair. Your hair will feel healthier upon first use. No, it’s not magic, we promise.

7. If you’re trying to grow out your hair, Daily Hair Repair should be your secret weapon. Your hair will feel stronger and grow longer as you use it because it helps prevent breakage!

8. It’s an Aveda Artist favorite. We always see Daily Hair Repair behind the scenes at photoshoots and Fashion Week, because it infuses the hair with softness and heat protection before styling. Beautiful hair starts with care, after all.

9. It’s part of the Damage Remedy family, one of our bestselling (and most beloved) lines. Fight the four types of damage — heat, environmental, chemical, and physical — with Damage Remedy.

10. Aveda fans LOVE it! “This really works!” says Aveda.com user JLM76. “I can’t imagine replacing it for anything in the world,” says user Ruv. “[It’s my] third time purchasing, I love this product!” says reviewer Rach. Clearly, it’s a fan favorite, and we have a feeling you’ll love it too.

How to Care for Your Little Girls Hair

Yes, they are sugar and spice and everything nice, but for those of us with little girls, it can be a constant struggle to keep their hair tangle free and looking nice. Here are some tips for taming their tresses and some easy styling ideas.

  1. Style their hair everyday. The more you do their hair, the more they will come to expect it and the less of a fight you will have over time. They may even start asking for extras like braids eventually.
  2. Always start by detangling first with a brush or comb. Start at the ends and work your way up to the scalp when detangling, and start with the hair at the nape of the neck and move up to the forehead. If you try to do ponies with bed head there will be trouble, and it will be harder to comb out at the end of the day.
  3. Make sure you are brushing or combing out her hair at least twice a day. Morning and night for a normal day, more often if they go swimming or do anything to make a major tangled mess.
  4. Use a leave in conditioning spray either along with or instead of a daily conditioner (if their hair is fine only use one or the other). They not only add extra moisture but are great for detangling.
  5. Style their hair when its wet. Either right when they get out of the tub or spray in water the next day, it will looked slicked back at first but when it dries it will soften and keep the flyaways at bay. 
  6. Avoid bangs, sure they may look cute at first, but toddlers especially will constantly have their hands in them leaving them full of who know what and looking disheveled. Not to mention the constant trims she will need. Do yourself a favor and just don’t go there, at all. Use small clips or headbands to keep the whispys out of her eyes as her baby hair grows out instead. 
  7. Use the cheap little throw away elastics for fine hair. If you try using a coated elastic on your wee ones hair it will just constantly slip out. At the end of the day you can just snip the elastic with a small pair of scissors to remove it, pull a piece out to avoid cutting her hair along with it.
  8. Watch tutorials, if you want to try something new there are tutorials on you tube for literally every hairstyle out there. 
  9. Practice, practice, practice. You will getter better and faster the more you try. If you have free time on the weekend spend 30 minutes (or longer if they will let you) on practicing hairdos, look a pictures and videos together and try to recreate the styles. 
  10. Use the right tools; a wide tooth comb, wet brush, tail comb, boar bristle brush and a spray bottle are great to have in your arsenal.
  11. Make it fun by including them in the process! Ask them if they have any ideas or let them pick out accessories the next time you are shopping together. The more control they think they have the easier you’ll find it is.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Aveda

5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT AVEDA 

You see Aveda in your shower every day. You keep Hand Relief on your desk at work. You visit with your Aveda artist several times a year at your cut or color appointments. We’re part of your life, and we like it that way!

However, there are probably a few things you DIDN’T know about your favorite brand (that’d be us), so we’re sharing five of our favorite facts with you.

 

1. Our HQ is located in Minnesota, just a few miles from Minneapolis. How’d we end up here? Our founder, Horst Rechelbacher, was in a car accident while visiting Minneapolis and decided to settle here. He was a hairdresser and set up a salon here and the rest is history! Aveda was officially founded in 1978.

2. The first Aveda product ever created was Clove shampoo. Legend has it that it was created in a sink OR a bathtub. Either way, we still love this iconic favorite.

3. We’ve been cruelty-free since our founding in 1978. We do not test on animals and never ask others to do so on our behalf. Our products are “people-tested.” Being a cruelty-free brand is an important part of our mission to care for the world we live in and for those we live with.

4. The bestselling products on Aveda.com are Shampure shampoo (a classic!) and Be Curly Curl Enhancer.

5. We were the first beauty company to use 100% post-consumer PET in our packaging in 2002.

 

And two bonus facts, just for fun:

 

We have 50,000 Aveda Artists working worldwide, and we’re always amazed and inspired by their creativity and talent.

 

The Aveda Mission guides us in everything we do – it informs every decision we make, from product packaging to the fact that we compost everything from our onsite cafeteria, Organica. It’s also one of the things our employees are the most proud of.
