Aveda: Switch to A Cruelty-Free Brand That Cares

Aveda Cruelty-free products bunny

We know that you millennials are far more conscious buyers than previous generations. You want to buy more sustainable and eco-friendly products, and this includes products that are cruelty-free. This is why brands like Aveda are becoming so popular, with their cruelty-free, naturally-derived products that are gentle on the skin and kind to the planet. We are so proud to say we use Aveda products in the salon, and we love them!

Why test on animals in the first place?

As a nation of animal lovers, most of us are appalled at the idea of using products that cause them suffering. Thankfully, in 1998, animal testing was banned in the UK, but many products made outside of the EU are still tested on animals.

The main reason animal testing happens is because government bodies need to prove whether certain ingredients are safe for people to use or not. But the truth is, ingredients have evolved, and many companies are using more naturally-derived ingredients in their products, so animal testing is unnecessary.

The benefits of choosing a cruelty-free brand

Well the obvious benefit is that animals don’t suffer. But there are also benefits for you. Most cruelty-free brands contain naturally-derived ingredients instead of potentially harmful chemicals that can cause skin irritation and more. So they’re better for your health, your conscience, and for our furry friends!

Aveda- a cruelty-free brand

The good news is that as a customer, you can choose to buy from cruelty-free brands and dictate the way the market develops. The more cruelty-free brands you support, the more they grow, and the companies who are using cruel and outdated animal testing practices get left behind.

Aveda is a cruelty-free brand that never tests on animals and never ask other companies to do so either. All of its products are tested on people.

Its cruelty-free brand status is an important part of its mission to care for the world in which it operates-and this includes animals.

Aveda’s biggest achievements

  • In 1989, Aveda was the first company to sign the Ceres Principles for corporate responsibility, which focuses on safeguarding the earth, its people, and animals.
  • The majority of Aveda’s products contain no ingredients that are derived from animals. The very small number that do might contain beeswax, honey, or whey-based protein.
  • The company’s manufacturing plant in Blaine, Minnesota is certified as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. It worked with the federation to produce ‘drive with care’ signs to protect animals living on or around the site.
  • Aveda works with a bird conservation charity called Audubon Minnesota to protect bird nesting habitats at the manufacturing plant. The work they’ve done together includes the construction of a chimney swift house, a purple martin house, wood duck nesting boxes, and bluebird houses.
  • Aveda has also supported the charity’s Upper Mississippi River Initiative through the Aveda Earth Month programme since 2007. The company has funded work to improve and maintain water quality to protect the river habitats of birds and other animals.
  • Aveda sponsors the Aveda Butterfly Garden at the Minnesota Zoo. Aveda subsidises the garden so that people can visit for free and learn about the importance of protecting butterflies and other insects that pollinate plants.
  • Since 2010, Aveda has collected old mobile phones from its employees to donate to Minnesota Zoo’s Recycle for Rainforest Project. Funding from the programme supports Ape conservation projects in Africa.
  • Aveda donated to the Animal Humane Society after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina and to the National Wildlife Federation after the terrible Gulf Oil spill.
  • Aveda practices bee-friendly gardening at its headquarters in Blaine, Minnesota.
  • Its gift boxes are made from handmade paper from Nepal, which is Certified Wildlife Friendly® by the Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network. By using this paper, Aveda has helped to protect 34,000 acres of forest, which is the habitat of 21 endangered species, including the grey wolf, snow leopard and wild yak.

Aveda Clean Water Campaign

charity water

Aveda is partnering with charity: water to bring clean, safe drinking water to people in need in India, Nepal, Madagascar and Ethiopia. Charity: water is a non-profit organisation which has funded over 29,000 projects around the world since 2006. Their work is so important because 663 million people in the world don’t have access to clean water. Can you even imagine that?? Can you imagine having to walk for hours every day just to get some water for your family, and then the water you do get isn’t even clean? It carries diseases that make people sick.

Clean water means:

  • Around 16,000 lives could be saved every week.
  • People (especially women) have more time to grow food and earn an income, and kids have more time to go to school because they aren’t spending it collecting water.

Would you like to support this amazing cause?

Aveda’s campaign has raised over $1 million in the past three years, and 100% of donations go to projects, as private donors cover charity:water’s operating costs. You can donate and make a real difference here.

Aveda Products: Eco-Friendly, Super Gentle, and Cruelty-Free

aveda eco friendly plant-based products

Research shows that millennials are more conscious about the environment than older generations, and we know that you would rather choose to spend your money on eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free products.

As you might know, we are an Aveda Concept Salon, and we’re so proud to use their amazing cruelty-free, 97% vegan plant-based products. Aveda are a company that have made it their mission to be pioneers of holistic beauty and champions of environmental responsibility, and it all goes back to its founder.

Aveda’s founder, Horst Rechelbacher was a hair stylist who was a victim of his own success. He ended up chronically overworked, and turned to herbal remedies, meditation, and yoga to help him recover from burnout.

He went to a retreat in India where he discovered Ayurveda, and how wellness and balance in the body, mind, and spirit can help someone achieve their beauty goals. While he was in India, he was inspired to create Aveda, and to create products from botanicals that would benefit both the user and the planet.

Aveda product ingredients

Aveda uses naturally-derived, certified organic ingredients from botanicals wherever possible, but its commitment to making products that are kinder to us and kinder to the planet goes deeper than that.

All of Aveda’s products and formulated without nasties like parabens, phthalates, and sodium lauryl sulphate, and key ingredients can be traced from their source to make sure they’re both sustainable and high-quality.

Aveda is a company that cares

It cares about animals

Aveda is a cruelty-free brand that never tests on animals, and while its products are not certified Vegetarian or Vegan, most of them contain no ingredients that come from animals at all. A small number of products contain beeswax, honey, or whey-based protein.

It also uses Certified Wildlife Friendly paper to wrap its gift boxes, which protects the trees that are home to endangered animals like the snow leopard.

It cares about people

For the past 12 years, the company has bought handmade paper from Nepal to wrap its gift boxes. This has given almost 5000 papermakers an income, and the chance to rebuild their communities after a devastating earthquake in 2015.

It supports research

Every year, Aveda releases a limited edition version of its hand relief™ moisturising creme, and donates some of the funds raised to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. More than $4 million has been raised since 2001.

Aveda also donates funds to cruelty-free research on the link between genetics, toxic chemical use, and breast cancer.

Weightlessly Hydrate Your Hair with Aveda Sap Moss

Aveda sap moss hydrating shampoo and conditioner

If you have dry hair, you probably have a constant fight on your hands to keep your locks hydrated. Many products on the market can weigh your hair down and make it look greasy the day after you wash it. So how do you hydrate your hair weightlessly?

Well, the answer is following these tips and investing in Aveda sap moss™ weightless hydrating shampoo and conditioner.

How to hydrate dry hair

Use products that contain a lot of protein

Protein seals the hair’s pores, so it retains moisture much better. But be careful with products that contain a lot of protein, using them too much or too often can leave your hair drier and brittle.

Focus products on the ends of your hair

Applying products to the roots of your hair will leave it feeling and looking weighed down and greasy, so apply products to the lengths and ends instead.

‘Pre-poo’ your hair    

If you fall into the trap of slapping on too much conditioner to make up for your dry locks, remember that this can weigh your hair down. Instead, try pre-pooing the hair to prevent any damage that can be done from products and the washing and drying process.

Include oils in your hair care routine

This might seem strange of me to say if you feel that you don’t want your hair to be greasy, but dry hair definitely benefits from the strategic use of oil.

Oils like argan, jojoba, and almond oil can help lock in moisture. Be sure to apply it to the ends only though, and remember that less is more!

Aveda Sap moss

I’m so excited that these products are back in the salon! If you want to weightlessly hydrate dry locks, these are for you!

sap moss™ weightless hydration shampoo

This silicone-free, weightlessly hydrating shampoo is perfect for thirsty hair. It’s formulated with a 94% naturally-derived blend of ingredients including Iceland moss and larch tree sap extract to help hydrate hair without weighing it down. This shampoo gently cleanses without stripping away natural oils and infuses hair with hydration while helping tame frizz. What’s more, it has a gorgeous scent and infuses the hair with the aroma of jasmine and certified organic olibanum and cypress.

sap moss™ weightless hydration conditioner

This silicone-free detangling conditioner is formulated with a blend of ingredients including Iceland moss and larch tree sap extract that hydrate the hair without weighing it down. Smart “drone” conditioning technology targets extra dry areas of the hair while instantly detangling and helping tame frizz. It has the same gorgeous earthy aroma as the shampoo!

Paint Your Face the Gentler Way with Aveda Makeup

Aveda makeup

If you’ve been following us on social media, you will have seen that we’re all about Aveda these days. As well as introducing their amazing range of gentle hair products to the salon, we also stock the best in their gorgeous makeup range.

After hairdressing for many years and being exposed to a lot of chemical nasties, I started suffering from really bad dermatitis. I could barely use anything on my skin as it was just too sore and sensitive.

But along came Aveda, and it changed my life.

I found that their skincare range was perfectly nourishing and gentle for my skin, and I went from not being able to wear makeup to being able to paint my face with some of Aveda’s best products (their red lippies are to die for!)

But what makes Aveda’s makeup so wearable?

The company uses mostly natural ingredients including pure flower and plant essences, which are much gentler on the skin than synthetic ingredients. Their products are also certified organic and are suitable for vegans.

Which products do we stock?

The next time you’re in getting a hair makeover, why not treat yourself to some Aveda makeup too, to finish off your new look and complement your new hair colour? These are some of the products that I love that much I just had to bring them into the salon.

Feed my lips™ pure nourish-mint™ lip gloss

This vegan lip gloss is made from 98% naturally-derived ingredients and it delivers all day colour and moisture. It smooths the lips and plumps them, making them appear fuller, and it feels light and not at all sticky, like some lip glosses can.

It’s so moisturising because it contains a nourishing blend of certified organic cupuaçu seed fruit butter and mango seed butter, as well as a unique super fruit blend of açai, pomegranate, avocado and mangosteen.

Certified organic pomegranate and babassu oil bring the shine and a blend of botanical oils, including certified organic kukui, jojoba and sunflower help smooth the lips.

feed my lips™ pure nourish-mint™ lip liner

Define and shape your lips with this gorgeous liner made with 96% naturally-derived ingredients. It contains mango seed oil and a blend of botanical waxes for smooth gliding, and blendable colour. Choose from a range of shades to complement your hair colour.

feed my lips™ pure nourish-mint™ lipstick

This 95% naturally derived long-wearing lipstick contains nourishing certified organic cupuaçu fruit butter, botanical oils, and Aveda’s signature certified organic peppermint, vanilla and ginger aroma-flavour. Choose from shades in a satin finish created to complement your hair colour.

inner light™ concealer

This semi-matte creamy concealer is infused with reflective minerals, to add radiance to skin while hiding under-eye puffiness and other imperfections. It provides full coverage and has a soft-tip easy gliding wand applicator. What’s even better is that it’s aroma-free, suitable for even acne-prone skin, and it’s ophthalmologist-tested.

Inner light™ mineral loose powder

Add a touch of illumination to your skin with this lighter-than-air powder, infused with skin-loving, reflective minerals. It feels silky on your skin and it sets makeup while reducing shine and the appearance of pores and fine lines.

It provides a semi-matte finish, it’s talc free, and suitable for even acne prone skin. It’s also free from parabens so it’s much gentler on the skin.

Inner light™ mineral tinted moisture

This gorgeous tinted moisturiser instantly increases radiance and delivers moisture on application. Your complexion will look gorgeously smooth, even, and dewy. The colour is 100% derived from minerals so you know you’re not clogging your pores with nasties.

Refresh Your Hair the Healthy Way with Aveda Rinseless Refresh

Aveda rinseless refresh

We all know that washing your hair too often is not great for hair health, especially if you have curly, coily, or wavy hair that’s on the dry side. Shampooing too often can strip the hair and scalp of its natural oils, leaving them dry, rough, and brittle.

But what if you have an oily scalp, or your hair just doesn’t feel clean without a daily wash? Do you reach straight for the dry shampoo? If so, use it with caution.

Dry shampoo-use it with caution

Dry shampoo can be a saviour when we’re trying to extend a blow dry by a day, or when we want a bit of extra time in bed in the morning but is it all it’s cracked up to be?

Dry shampoo isn’t actually a shampoo and it doesn’t make your hair cleaner; all it does is absorb oil from your roots and mask odours, and even when you brush it out, some of the particles remain in your hair and on your scalp. As well as these particles, pollutants, and products can cause a build-up on the scalp which leads to irritation, redness, and dandruff. Even if this doesn’t happen, using dry shampoo too often can weigh down and weaken your hair follicles which slows down hair growth. But it’s not all bad news. Most people that experience problems with dry shampoo don’t use it properly, but you can avoid the typical problems if you know how, when, and how often you should use it.

Dry shampoo should be used on a dry scalp-there should be no sweat or dampness. You should avoid using it more than two days in a row, and if you suffer from a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis, you should always seek advice before you use anything on your scalp.

Don’t fancy using dry shampoo? Try Aveda rinseless refresh

Aveda rinseless refresh is a liquid mist with no-rinse micellar technology. Micelles derived from babassu act like microscopic magnets, lifting impurities from the hair and leaving your scalp feeling clean and fresh in an instant.

It refreshes your hair, adds texture, and tames frizz for up to 72 hours. Not only that, it soothes your scalp and makes your hair smell amazing, thanks to Aveda’s own Pure-Fume™ aroma with jasmine and certified organic mandarin, lemon, ylang ylang and other pure flower and plant essences.

Is it for me?

It’s suitable for all hair types and it’s perfect if you want a healthier alternative to dry shampoo, or you want to refresh your hair after a workout, a day at the beach, or when you’ve slept on it and woken up with a bedhead.

Free from nasties

Like all Aveda products, rinseless refresh is vegan, petrolatum free, paraben free, mineral oil free, silicone free, sulphate free, propylene glycol free, formaldehyde free, and phthalate free so your hair and scalp won’t be exposed to any unwanted nasties.

If you want to experience our Aveda range, come to the salon and find the perfect product to restore your hair and scalp to its best condition yet!


Rough, Dry Hair? Restore Softness and Shine With Aveda Cherry Almond

cherry almond shampoon and conditioner from Aveda

How healthy is your hair? Is it your crowning glory, or when you run your hands over it, does it feel rough, dry, and brittle?

Here are some definite signs that you need hair rehab, and fast!

Your hair is dull, dry, and frizzy

You have a lot of split ends

It sheds excessively

It lacks shine

It’s prone to tangling when it’s wet

When you get colour treatments, they fade quickly

It feels rough to the touch

It lacks elasticity and breaks easily

The biggest causes of rough, dry hair

A lack of nutrients and hormone problems can cause hair to feel rough and dry, but the main culprits are what we expose our hair to every day, like UV rays, chlorine, chemicals, and heat styling.

How to deal with rough, dry hair

Don’t use too much heat on your hair

Let it dry naturally when you can and use good products to help you embrace your natural texture. If you must use heat tools, use heat protection products without fail.

Use moisturising and nourishing shampoo, conditioner, and styling products

Our new Aveda cherry almond range is perfect for softening and restoring health and shine to rough, dry hair.

Cherry almond softening shampoo deeply and gently cleanses the hair without stripping its natural oils like some harsher products can. Cherry blossom and sweet almond oil restore the hair’s shine from roots to ends, leaving hair feeling super soft. Not only will your hair feel gorgeous, it will smell amazing too, thanks to the floral pure-fume™ aroma which comes from 38 flower and plant essences including tonka bean, certified organic orange and ylang ylang.

Cherry almond softening conditioner contains super softening and detangling ingredients like organic coconut oil and shea butter. It’s formulated with cherry blossom extract and sweet almond oil which restores softness and shine from the roots to ends and leaves hair glowing with health. It also has the same sweet and juicy scent as the shampoo, thanks to natural flower and plant essences.

Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet

This can put extra stress on already fragile hair. Use a wide tooth comb instead to gently detangle your hair.

Eat a healthy diet

Make sure you’re getting plenty of fruit and veg, as well as healthy fats and lean protein which will help keep your hair healthy. If you want some extra reassurance, invest in a good multivitamin too.

Say Hello to Curls and Farewell to Frizz with Aveda Be Curly

Aveda be curly hair products for curly hair

Curly hair bends and twists every which way, and that’s why the scalp’s natural protective oils sometimes struggle to work their way down all the strands, and you curly girls can end up with dry, brittle locks. Curly hair needs to be handled with care, and it should be treated differently from other types of hair. The good news for all you curly babes is that we now stock the Aveda be curly ™ range in salon that reduces frizz, and protects and enhances your beautiful curls.

Here’s how to say hello to curls and goodbye to frizz with the help of Aveda.

Start pre-shampooing

Be curly ™ co-wash prepares delicate and tangled locks for shampooing and prevents any damage. It’s a sulphate-free conditioning wash with nourishing certified organic babassu oil which gently cleanses your scalp, moisturises your curls, reduces frizz, and leaves your curls soft and defined.

Don’t shampoo every day, but when you do, choose be curly ™ shampoo

Washing curly hair too often can cause damage and dryness, but when you do wash your hair choose a gentle shampoo. Think about curly hair like a delicate knit; you wouldn’t just throw it in the washing machine on any old setting with bog standard detergent, you need to treat it gently, and wash it with a gentle product. Never use a harsh shampoo on your curly hair as this will strip away the hair’s natural oils and leave it feeling even more dry.

Be curly ™ shampoo gently cleanses, enhances curls, combats frizz, and boosts shine. The blend of wheat protein and organic aloe expands when the hair is wet and retracts when the hair is dry to boost your curls, and you’ll also fall in love with the smell of this product. It has a lovely refreshing citrus aroma as it contains certified organic lime, lemon, bergamot, orange and other hair-loving pure plant and flower essences.

Use a nourishing and curl-enhancing conditioner

A good conditioner is a must for curly hair as it tends to soak up product like there’s no tomorrow. Apply conditioner to the lengths and ends, and use a wide-toothed comb to distribute the product evenly. Be curly ™ conditioner enhances curls while fighting frizz and boosting shine. The blend of wheat protein and organic aloe enhance your curls while organic lime, lemon, bergamot, orange, and other botanicals will leave your hair smelling beautifully fresh.

Prep your hair for styling

After you wash, comb your hair with a good-quality wide-toothed comb to detangle it. Don’t use a brush as it can cause damage and disrupt your curl pattern leaving your hair looking like a hot mess.

Be curly ™ style-prep adds moisture and definition to your curls as it seals the hair’s cuticle. It detangles to reduce damage caused by combing, it fights frizz, and it leaves your curls soft not crunchy. Wheat protein and organic aloe combine to enhance curls and fight frizz, while organic baobab oil, babassu oil, and macadamia nut help seal, soften, and moisturise the hair. Guar bean and plant-derived cellulose help keep your curls bouncy and pretty throughout the day, and botanical citrus extracts leave your hair smelling fresh.

The final step for beautiful curls

As you’ve probably guessed, using a lot of heat on curly hair is not a great idea because it’s usually dry and fragile. Try to let your hair dry naturally and use foam rollers or twists to give your curls some shape.

If you must use heat, try using a diffuser instead of a standard hair dryer. A diffuser distributes heat more evenly and is gentler on the hair. Before you start with the diffuser, apply some be curly ™ curl enhancer to intensify your curls, tame frizz, and boost shine. Once you’re ready to go, start with the diffuser at the roots and use circular motions over your scalp, working in the same direction. Dry the ends last. Give your hair a blast with the cool button when your hair is almost dry to add a shot of shine.

How to Avoid Hair Product Build-Up

hair product build-up

Many hair products contain silicone and parabens, which can leave a waxy build up on your hair. You might have seen a video that went viral recently of a hairdresser scraping a client’s hair with scissors and showing some pretty gross looking product build-up.

Silicone is a big cause of product build-up

Yep, this is often caused by silicone. Silicone seals the hair’s cuticle against water and it does make it appear shiny on the surface but it’s not a healthy shine, it’s more of a coating. What happens is the silicone lies on top of the hair making it look greasy, flat, and lifeless. My top tip: if you see the word ‘dimethicone’ on the product label, don’t choose it. This is one of the main culprits when it comes to build-up.

The problem with product build-up

The problem with build-up is that it can stop other products like colour or keratin from penetrating your hair so they’re less effective. The hair will also lose its natural shine.

But silicone is not all bad. It can make the hair less porous and adds moisture, so it won’t do too much harm, as long as you wash your hair thoroughly. In fact, product build-up is also caused by hard water, failing to rinse products out of the hair properly, and cheaper shampoos which tend to contain more silicones and waxes.

What should we look for in a hair product?

First of all, you should look for products that suit your hair type and needs. Naturally-derived ingredients, like those in the Aveda products we use in the salon (which are also paraben free) are also much kinder to your hair.

If you’re confused about the products you should be using to achieve your best hair yet, speak to me the next time you’re in the salon and I can suggest a custom hair care routine, whether your hair is straight, wavy, virgin, or coloured. If you have a lot of product build-up in your hair, we can also look at using a clarifying shampoo regularly.


Revive Dry, Damaged Post-Holiday Hair with Aveda Damage Remedy

aveda damage remedy intensive treatment

Have you just been on your hols, or are you planning a late summer getaway to escape the suddenly very changeable British weather? If so, you need to protect your locks from the sun so you don’t come back home with dry, damaged hair that looks and feels like straw. Here’s how:

Protect your hair every day

You protect your skin from the sun so why not your hair? Too much sun exposure can cause hair damage, dryness, and colour fade. Remember to wear a protective leave-in product or spray with UV filters to protect your locks from the sun’s harmful rays.

Give your hair some nourishment

Hair that’s dry, damaged, or just been coloured needs some extra nourishment, and Aveda’s damage remedy intensive restructuring treatment is the perfect nourishing treat. It contains quinoa protein to add strength and shine to hair. Apply it after a long day in the sun, and you’ll be able to see and feel the difference.

Don’t wash your hair too often

If you’re in a humid environment and you shampoo too often, this can cause the scalp to dry out and go flaky.

Use a hair mask to fight frizz

If you have frizz prone hair, you’ll be familiar with how big and unmanageable your hair can get in humid environments. This is because dry hair lacks moisture so it absorbs moisture from the air and it expands. If you’re prone to frizz, use a hydrating hair mask once per week to add some much needed moisture and nourishment to thirsty hair.

If your hair is dry, damaged, and frizzy, I’d advise that you take a step away from the heat styling tools. But if you really want to use them for a sleeker blow dry, apply a heat protection product then blow dry your hair with the nozzle of your hair dryer facing down. Keep tension on the hair at the roots with your brush to smooth out the hair and get a sleeker finish. Finish off your blow dry with a few drops of hair oil to smooth the hair and add shine.

Is your hair dry and frazzled from your hols?

If your hair looks and feels like straw after your hols, book in to the salon for a reviving cut, colour, or conditioning treatment and restore your locks to their former glory.
