WHY SCALP HEALTH IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY-LOOKING HAIR

WHY SCALP HEALTH IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY-LOOKING HAIR

INTRODUCING AVEDA’S NEW SERIES,

WHAT’S MY SCALP GOT TO DO WITH IT?

 

 

In the beauty world, there’s a great focus on hair care and what we can do to keep our locks looking healthy, but the scalp often gets skipped over altogether.

 

To shine the spotlight on the importance of a healthy scalp and how best to care for yours, we’re kicking off our new series, “What’s My Scalp Got to Do With It?” and exploring our cruelty free 94% naturally derived* invatiTM hair care collections. With scalp products for men and women, invatiTM helps cleanse, renew and invigorate the scalp to create the optimal foundation for thicker, fuller hair.

 

For the first post of our new series, we went to one of our subject matter experts, Aveda Senior Research Scientist Alison Pawlus, to get down to basics and explore why healthy-looking hair starts with a healthy scalp. Thanks to Alison’s extensive knowledge, we’re sharing a primer on scalp education, plus her recommended invatiTM products and routines for maintaining scalp health.

 

 

 

The scalp 101

 

Why does a healthy scalp matter? It’s essential for healthy-looking hair. Alison tells us every single hair on our body (approximately 100,000 on the scalp alone!) is produced by its own mini-organ, called the hair follicle. Hair follicles are embedded into our scalp and are highly dependent upon and influenced by their surrounding environment, the skin.

 

Just as a plant needs healthy, well-balanced soil for optimal health, our hair also needs a nourishing environment. The changes that we see in our hair with age such as thinning, greying, and changes in luster, are all due to biological changes that take place in the scalp and hair follicle. This is why hair health really begins at the scalp.

 

And since our scalp is skin, we should treat it no differently than the skin on our face or bodies. In fact, Alison tells us since our scalp is often uncovered and exposed to the sun’s UV rays and other environmental aggressors, it’s vital to clean and protect it for overall health and hygiene.

 

 

The ancient practice of scalp care

 

Both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine in India have utilized medicinal plants on the scalp to promote healthy hair for centuries, Alison explains. So, there is a strong historical context that reinforces the importance of overall health, including the scalp, with healthy hair. In fact invatiTM means “invigorate” in Sanskrit and taps the power of Ayurveda—the ancient healing art of India—to invigorate the scalp when massaged in.

 

The 98% naturally derived* invati advancedTM scalp revitalizer takes from this Ayurvedic practice by using a patented bio-fermented blend plus our Ayurvedic herb blend with ginseng and certified organic turmeric to invigorate the scalp when massaged in. The 98% naturally derived* invati menTM scalp revitalizer also borrows from this practice by using a potent blend of plant actives to wake up the scalp.

 

At Aveda, hair and scalp health is an important part of overall self-care, and our invatiTM systems make this an easy part of your routine.

 

 

 

Scalp myths: What’s true and what’s not?

 

MYTH #1: YOU ONLY HAVE TO CLEANSE YOUR SCALP IF YOU HAVE DANDRUFF

 

This is not true.

While flakes on your black sweater can be frustrating or uncomfortable, there are absolutely more reasons to cleanse your scalp. Alison explains there are less severe, chronic issues or neglect that promote premature aging of your hair over many years, such as hair thinning and other problems as explained below.

 

 

MYTH #2: SHAMPOOING YOUR SCALP CAN BE DAMAGING FOR TWO REASONS

 

1) It removes beneficial oils from the hair.

This is a popular misconception. Alison explains that, yes, shampooing does remove lipids from the hair, especially those derived from our sebum. However, shampoo also removes compounds that are harmful to our scalp. The longer you wait to wash your scalp, the greater chance that harmful chemicals can build up.

 

2) It can promote hair loss.

Some people concerned with thinning hair can become overly worried about what’s considered normal levels of hair loss. Hair grows in multi-year cycles and then sheds before starting a new growth stage. When it comes to losing hair, the average person sheds approximately 100 hairs a day, which can also change depending on the season, Alison tells us.

 

A significant part of this hair loss happens in the shower, while shampooing and conditioning. When you see a lot of hair in the drain, it’s easy to begin to associate hair washing with an increase in hair loss. This can become so stressful that some people start to wash less often, which can lead to an unhealthy scalp and more hair loss in the future. Essentially, you can actually promote a negative cycle by washing your hair less.

Now that you’ve received a crash course in scalp education, let’s learn how to care for your scalp and which products to use.

 

 

Alison shares that routine cleansing keeps potentially harmful compounds from accumulating on the scalp. The effects of these molecules can lead to low levels of inflammation, ultimately creating an unhealthy environment for hair growth. Over many years, the accumulation of damage from these molecules can promote hair thinning.

 

To address the issue of hair loss, we created two systems—invati advancedTM for women, and invati menTM. Both systems work to exfoliate, reduce hair loss** and create stronger thicker hair.

 

 

CLEANSE YOUR SCALP

Finding the right balance between a healthy, clean scalp and maintaining a strong scalp barrier is important.

 

For women, Alison recommends the 94% naturally derived* invati advancedTM exfoliating shampoo to gently exfoliate, cleanse and renew the scalp. Wintergreen-derived salicylic acid helps remove build-up and dead skin cells that can clog pores. This nourishing, color-safe formula cleanses the hair and detangles to help protect from breakage during shampooing. A 2019 Harper’s Bazaar Hair Awards winner,** it creates the optimal foundation for thicker, fuller hair.

 

Formulated for men, the 94% naturally derived* invatiTM men nourishing exfoliating shampoo also removes excess oil and build-up with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid, plus it conditions to help strengthen thinning hair.

 

How to use the invatiTM systems

 

 

Alison explains that invati advancedTM exfoliating shampoo and invati advancedTM thickening conditioner can simply be used in place of your normal shampoo and conditioner. Since they’re packed with beneficial plant derived extracts, Alison advises to take your time and gently massage into the scalp to enjoy their full potential.

 

She recommends using the invatiTM system to optimize the benefit of each product. And since we care about helping everyone beat hair loss***, we thoughtfully crafted collections for both men and women. See below for how to use invatiTM as your daily hair care routine.

 

FOR WOMEN

Step 1. Exfoliate: Use invati advancedTM exfoliating shampoo.
Massage shampoo on wet hair and scalp and rinse.

 

Step 2. Thicken: Follow with invati advancedTM thickening conditioner.
Massage onto wet hair and scalp. Rinse and then towel dry. Certified organic amla instantly thickens the hair while naturally derived amino acids mimic hair’s building blocks, to help strengthen hair from roots to ends.

 

Step 3. Activate****: Use invati advancedTM scalp revitalizer.
Apply once daily to damp or dry hair. Lift hair in sections to spray directly onto the scalp. Spray 16 times, evenly covering your head. Then gently massage in to invigorate the scalp. Do not rinse.

This innovative serum contains a potent blend of naturally derived antioxidants, licorice root, tangerine peel, japanese knotweed, and green tea, which provide an important layer of protection, according to Alison. This blend penetrates to help support hair’s natural keratin. For daily scalp treatments, Alison recommends applying this every day, whether you wash or not, to instantly thicken strands and support your hair’s health.

 

FOR MEN

Step 1. Exfoliate: Use invati menTM nourishing exfoliating shampoo.
Massage into wet hair and scalp, then rinse.

 

Step 2. Thicken And Invigorate: Follow with invati menTM scalp revitalizer.
Apply in a straight line from front to back of head on center, left and right sides of scalp. Use this product once daily. Massage into the scalp. Do not rinse. You may feel warming tingling, but don’t worry—this means it’s working right at the roots of your hair.

 

Alison’s scalp care rituals

After studying scalp health for many years, Alison has two rituals she follows for caring for her scalp. The first is cleansing, which you’ll now be a pro at after reading this, and the second is sun protection.

She tells us it’s crucial to protect your scalp from the sun’s strong UV radiation when the UV index is highest. She keeps a wide-brimmed hat next to her door for gardening outside and wears a baseball hat for outdoor workouts. Make sure to cover your head when venturing outside to prevent the sun from damaging your scalp.

 

 

Whether you’re new to scalp care or a scalp care veteran, now you know why a healthy scalp is so important and how to care for yours using the invatiTM systems.

 

Your Best Summer Hair Starts Here

YOUR BEST SUMMER HAIR STARTS HERE

 

OUR MUST-KNOW RITUALS FOR HAIR

PROTECTION AND EASY, BEACHY WAVES

Summer means hot, sunny days are here to stay. And whether you’re outside in your backyard pool or taking a walk, it’s important to protect your hair from the summer elements, no matter where your day takes you. For your healthiest-looking summer hair, we’re sharing our easy rituals for protection from the sun, salt and more, and how to practice them daily. We’ll also show you how to get perfectly-beachy waves, without the beach, to capture that easy summer look.

 

Let’s help you find the routine and products you need for hair protection and breezy beach waves.

 

 

Summer hair care must-haves

 

Time spent under the sun means you’re exposing your hair to its drying effects, which can leave your hair feeling brittle. With the right hair care products from our cruelty free sun care collection, you can help protect and summer-proof your hair before and after spending time in the sun.

 

We created the sun care line with UV protection to help defend hair from the drying effects of the sun. Think of it as a summer essential for your hair.

 

To help you understand how our sun care hair products work, we’ll explain a little further about what happens when your hair is exposed to the summer elements. UVA/UVB exposure creates free radicals and breaks down the protein structures in hair, including melanin. This means that sunlight can weaken your hair and cause your hair color to fade. And when your hair color fades from the sun, this is ultimately damaging your hair.*

 

The drying effects of the sun can also deplete it of moisture, causing it to look and feel dry. That’s why it’s so important to give your hair the daily care it needs both pre and post-sun exposure.

 

If you spend time at a pool or the beach this season, it’s vital to understand the effects of chlorine and salt, too. Chlorine penetrates and also weakens hair, and can cause discoloration. Meanwhile, salt coats hair, leaving it feeling dry and rough. Read on for the routine and products you’ll need to protect your hair from these elements.

 

Pre-sun exposure

 

Before you head out into the sun, you’ll want to protect your hair with our sun care protective hair veil. This fine spray is a UV-defense mist that forms an invisible screen to help protect hair from drying sun exposure. We created this weightless formula with naturally derived UVA/UVB filters from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils to help protect hair from the drying effects of the sun, while keeping your hairstyle intact.

 

Its unique antioxidant blend of green tea extract, organic sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E helps protect and defend hair against free radicals. This helps provide protection against color fading and sun damage, so you can stress less about your hair under the sun.

 

sun care protective hair veil is formulated with certified organic shea butter, coconut and palm oils to help condition and detangle hair without weighing it down, making it the perfect pre-styling step in your hair care routine. This hair UV protection spray helps protect hair from the drying effects of the sun and is also water resistant, which means it’s perfect for whatever summer activities the day brings.

THE RITUAL:

 

By creating healthy hair habits, you’re treating your hair (and yourself!) to the daily care it needs. We love that sun care protective hair veil can be used on dry or damp hair. For dry hair, before or during sun exposure, spray lightly for even distribution on hair. Layer as needed, but do not saturate the hair.

 

If you’re using on damp hair before sun exposure, spray evenly and comb through for even distribution. Make sure to use it during sun exposure too, by reapplying after swimming.

 

 

 

Post-sun exposure

 

After your hair has been in the sun, treat it to some serious TLC with our sun care after-sun hair masque. Similar to the sun care protective hair veil, it helps defend hair from free radical damage with green tea extract, organic sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E. It also helps protect hair from the drying effects of the sun with the same naturally derived UVA/UVB filters from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils.

 

What’s different is that it’s a rich, intensive creme treatment that helps restore your hair. This hair masque contains morikue protein to help revive hair weakened by exposure to sunlight and chlorine. We formulated it with a blend of tamanu oil, certified organic shea butter, coconut and palm oils to moisturize and provide much-needed conditioning to sun-exposed hair.

 

It’s perfect for all hair types. Although we created it as a rinse-off product, you can also use it as a leave-in dry hair treatment if you need extra conditioning, moisture and protection. After a day under a cloudless sky, you’ll love giving your hair a self-care moment with this masque.

 

THE RITUAL:

 

After shampooing, apply evenly to damp hair, from roots to ends. Leave in for 2 to 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. Use weekly or as needed whenever hair is exposed to sun, salt or chlorine.

 

How to get beachy waves, without the beach

 

You can still get effortless summer waves, even if you’re not dipping your toes in the ocean this season. Our 94% naturally derived** be curly collection is made for those with naturally wavy, coily or curly hair, and includes essentials that help reduce frizz and define curls—which is just what you’ll need for tousled, beachy waves.

 

be curly shampoo, conditioner and curl enhancer are our must-haves to help define wavy or curly hair. Each of them uses a blend of hydrolyzed wheat protein and certified organic aloe which expands when hair is wet and retracts when hair is dry in order to enhance curls or waves. The shampoo and conditioner also helps tame frizzy hair with a blend including certified organic oil and palm oil, and they work to enhance your curls.

 

be curly shampoo gently cleanses your hair with ingredients derived from certified organic coconut and babassu nut. Next, be curly conditioner works to boost shine and conditions your hair. Both the shampoo and conditioner revive your senses with our refreshing citrus pure-fume aroma, crafted with certified organic lemon, bergamot, orange and other pure plant and flower essences.

 

Lastly, be curly curl enhancer is our hero of the be curlycollection, and a multi-tasking styling product that intensifies curl, tames frizz, and boosts shine.

 

Its 96% naturally derived** formula includes certified organic marshmallow root which helps provide smooth hold for your curls and waves. Plus, we created the curl enhancer without parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum and formaldehyde for a product you can feel good about using on your hair.

 

 

THE RITUAL:

 

To create textured, carefree waves, start by washing your hair with be curly shampoo. Massage it into wet hair and scalp, then rinse. Next massage be curly conditioner into wet hair and rinse.

 

Then, smooth a generous amount of be curly curl enhancer onto damp hair. Twist large sections of hair into tight coils and secure ends to your head with clips. Dry naturally for heat-free styling or blow dry with a diffuser. Then unclip each section and lightly comb through your hair with your fingers for an undone look.

 

Protect your hair from the sun, salt and more, plus get easy beachy waves, all with our summer hair care essentials.

SUMMER HAIR AND SKIN ESSENTIALS

MUST-HAVES TO PROTECT AND HYDRATE ALL SEASON LONG

 

The longer days of summer are here, and this year we’re enjoying simpler ways to beat the heat. Hosting small backyard barbecues and hitting the hiking trails still calls for protecting and hydrating our skin, but did you know that your hair needs the same kind of care to protect it from the drying effects of the sun? To help prep for sunny days, we’re sharing our essential hair and skin products along with expert rituals.

Here’s everything you need to know to take in summer and not the sun.

 

 

Hair care 101 for summer days

THE ESSENTIAL: nutriplenish leave-in conditioner

 

Your skincare routine includes sun protection and hydration, and your hair care routine should too.

We all know the sun can damage your skin, but what about its effect on your hair? Intense UV rays can dry out hair and deplete the natural lipids that coat and nourish the hair’s surface. This can leave hair brittle and vulnerable, which is why UV protection is essential.

To protect against the drying effects of the sun, we recommend using our paraben and silicone free nutriplenish leave-in conditioner. We created this hair UV protection spray with a vegan formula that contains sand ginger, a naturally derived UV filter. Just as you protect your skin from the sun’s rays, protecting your hair from the drying effects of the sun as part of your daily hair care routine is important to maintaining your hair’s health.

When it comes to hydration, 98% naturally derived* nutriplenish leave-in conditioner is the perfect nourishing spray for moisture-depleted hair. Omega-5-rich suberfood ingredient, organic pomegranate oil, helps replenish dry hair exposed to the sun with nutrient-powered hydration for 72 hours. It’s also the dry hair treatment you need to help achieve lush, visibly healthier hair.

 

THE RITUAL:

Before styling for the day, lightly mist dry or damp hair to protect it against the drying effects of the sun and to add nourishment. For fine-to-medium hair, apply on mid-lengths to ends. For hair that’s more textured, apply from scalp to ends. If you’re looking for the ultimate hair hydration system, the entire nutriplenish collection hydrates and replenishes all hair types and textures, making it perfect for summer and beyond.

 

 

Summer skincare

THE ESSENTIALS: botanical kinetics collection and daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum SPF 30

 

Although giving your skin the proper care is vital to its health all year long, we spoke with Helga Hefner, Aveda’s Manager of Professional Skin and Spa Education, for an expert opinion on summer skincare routines. She shared that the skin has a tendency to become more sensitive during the summer, due to the fact that we spend more time outdoors, exposing the skin to the harmful effects of the sun and other environmental pollutants and irritants.

Giving your skin extra care for the season starts with the right products and routine. At Aveda, we treat your skin to the protection and hydration it needs with cruelty free formulas that you can feel good about using.

Let’s start with perhaps the most vital need: sun protection. As nature’s way of defending your skin, daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum spf 30 will change the way you think about sunscreen for your face. The non-chemical formula includes 100% mineral-derived UV filters and uses advanced coating technology that glides on sheer and smooth, not chalky. This means you’ll love the weightless feel against your skin—no white residue here.

 

daily light guard provides UVA/UVB defense with SPF 30 sunscreen by using our unique mineral technology that helps reflect UV rays before they reach your skin. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide rest on the skin’s surface and reflect UVA—which penetrates clouds and windows—and UVB light to help protect skin from damage.

 

In addition to UV protection, daily light guard acts as your plant-derived pollution defense, with an antioxidant blend of ginger extracts that helps defend against free radical damage. Environmental pollution is the most common cause of skin damage, such as loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles. That’s why it’s so important to make daily protection a habit.

 

When it comes to the rest of your summer skincare routine, Helga recommended picking products based on your skin type—dry or oily. “Most people have skincare challenges because they are not using the correct products,” Helga told us. The botanical kinetics collection includes powerful, essential products for both skin types that help to maintain skin’s healthy, balanced state.

 

 

Helga explained that it’s important to keep the skin cleansed and free of impurities in the summertime, without stripping or drying the skin. For oily skin, botanical kinetics purifying gel cleanser uses coconut and babassu-derived surfactants to gently foam away makeup, oil and impurities, while helping to normalize skin.

 

If you have dry skin, you’ll want to use botanical kinetics purifying creme cleanser instead. The rich creme is extra mild on your skin as it cleanses, and is formulated with plant-derived oils to leave it soft and smooth.

 

The key to balanced skin, Helga shared, is toning and replenishing hydration in the morning after cleansing. For oily skin, saturate skin with botanical kinetics toning mist to dissolve surface oil and replenish moisture. For dry skin, using botanical kinetics skin toning agentwill help restore your skin’s moisture balance and provide your skin with a burst of refreshment.

 

“Your skin may become oilier and more sensitive in the summer months due to the heat and humidity and by being more active,” Helga told us. Using a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer like botanical kinetics hydrating lotion will help leave your skin feeling refreshed with a gentle touch.

 

If your skin is craving a bit more hydration, substituting with botanical kinetics intense hydrating soft creme will instantly replenish your skin’s moisture reserve. These quick-absorbing lotions and plant-derived essentials are the ultimate foundation for healthier-looking summer skin.

 

 

THE RITUAL:

 

Step 1: Apply your preferred botanical kinetics cleanser over damp face and throat with upward and outwards circles to remove impurities, dirt and debris. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

 

Step 2: After cleansing, saturate skin with your preferred toner, botanical kinetics toning mist or botanical kinetics skin toning agent.

 

Step 3: Next, dispense a pearl-size drop of botanical kinetics hydrating lotion or botanical kinetics intense hydrating soft cremeinto your hand. Starting at your throat, apply lotion and work your way up to your face.

 

Step 4: Grab your daily light guard defense fluid broad spectrum spf 30 and shake well. Smooth onto face and décolleté as the final step in your morning skincare ritual. For sunscreen use, reapply at least every 2 hours.

We are just getting started….Thank You!

We are Opening on May 15th!


Thank you all so much for your excitement surrounding the announcement that salons, including Naviina Salon & Day Spa, can reopen!
 

We want to be very clear that we are taking your safety and that of our staff very seriously. We will be waiting until May 15th to reopen due to implementing the new standards set forth by the governor. We had such short notice that we are still awaiting much needed PPE to arrive and we also have renovations which need to be finished. There are many new safety and sanitation rules that we are implementing. Unfortunately we will not be able to book any massage or facial appointments in our spa until phase two begins which is July 1st. Please read on to see what some of our new protocols will look like.

 

  • Appointments: We will begin calling to reschedule guests on Monday, May 4th, and our online booking at www.naviinasalon.com will re-open for booking. We appreciate your patience while some service providers may have limited availability. Due to the scheduled shifting of the service providers, your scheduled appointment may not stand as it was previously scheduled, however, we will notify you as soon as possible. We have limited phone staff that will be working hard to accommodate the many changes that have occurred. Our phones will remain closed until then. We WILL NOT be taking calls for appointments before May 4th. For better tracking please email your appointment requests info@naviinasalon.com if you cannot book online and we will reach out to you.

 

  • Social Distancing – Service Providers will be working in every other station, leaving an empty station to keep a safe distance.

 

  • Masks – Our staff will be required to wear masks. We require that you wear a mask to your appointment that secures behind the ears.

 

  • Minimial Blow-drying – Temporarily, we will not be doing full blowouts and styling in the salon. Minimal blow-drying also allows for our staff to have sufficient sanitizing time between clients without extended appointment times. Please know that any adjustments in your services and blow-drys will be temporary.

 

  • Touchless Greetings & Goodbyes – We will not be shaking hands or hugging at this time.

 

  • Capes- clients will receive a fresh cape for their service as always. Please come in freshly laundered clothing.

 

  • No Beverages – We will not be offering any beverage service at this time.

 

  • Limited Items and Guests – Please limit any belongings that you bring with you perhaps to your phone and forms of payment(rather than your handbag). Please do not bring any extra guests with you and please do not bring children to your appointment at this time. The exception to this is if a young child is scheduled, at that point we would allow one parent to accompany them into the service and maintain space from our service providers. Absolutely no pets will be allowed in the salon at this time.

 

  • Please wait in your vehicle- We ask that you wait in your vehicle at this time so that there will be minimal contact between guests arriving and leaving. We will call you when we are ready for you to enter the salon.

 

If you have been ill or around someone who has been ill, please wait 14 days to reschedule your appointment.

 

Our local, family-owned business appreciates your support and understanding as we navigate this new salon “norm”. We are working quickly and very diligently to be both accommodating and conscientious to your needs. We are incorporating extensive new and improved sanitation practices into every aspect of our operation, includingthe requirement of all of our Service Provider’s completion of a Barbicide Course and Certification . We appreciate your kindness and support during this difficult time in history. We look forward to seeing you in the salon soon!
