Aveda Has Remedies For Thirsty Locks

Aveda Dry Remedy

Do you have Winter Hair? Is it crunchy? If so, Namaste hair salons in Denver along with Aveda can help.

WebMD says, “Take a dry strand and gently pull both ends to stretch it. If it breaks easily, you don’t have enough moisture in your hair.” The article suggests that a better moisturizer might be the solution.

Although a lot of products say they’re moisturizing on the label, in reality they might simply coat your hair to make it feel softer. WebMD recommends looking “for products with natural oils” and to “stay away from shampoos with mineral oil and petrolatum, which keep outside moisture from getting in.”

Aveda offers not only a great moisturizer, Dry Remedy™ Moisturizing Conditioner, but also a Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo. These products feature buriti oil, which helps hydrate hair.

Some other tips?

1. Let go of some length. “Trim dead ends every six to eight weeks. especially if you use hot tools regularly. Stylists warn against snipping strands at home because dull scissors can fray your ends even more. Plus, cutting the back of your hair in a straight line isn’t easy!”

2. Beware of heat and use styling products. Although heat is the best way to get a sleek, styled look be sure to use a styling product to help protect your hair. If you have fine hair, set your styling tools to low. Medium and coarse hair can handle slightly higher temperatures.

3. Watch out for the weather. Wear a hat when the weather conditions are bad.

4. Don’t fry it with chemicals. Do you get perms, relaxers or permanent color? “Chemicals take away hair’s natural moisture and weaken the strands. If you have too many chemical treatments, your hair might turn dull and frizzy. Try to keep your salon hair color within three shades of your natural hair color. Hair color closer to your natural shade needs less processing. And try to space out your treatments.”

  • In addition to Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner, use the Dry Remedy Treatment Masque once a week for more intense results.

And if you want to add shine daily, while controlling fly away ends use Aveda’s Dry Remedy™ Daily Moisturizing Oil. All are safe for color-treated hair!

These products will leave your hair soft, supple and shinny. 93% of women agreed their hair felt immediately moisturized and soft after using the dry remedy™ system* and enjoyed the natural aroma with organic bergamot, lavender and ginger lily.

*The system includes Dry Remedy™ Moisturizing Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque and Daily Moisturizing Oil.

Aveda Holiday Gifts and Candle 2013

For the 6th year in a row, your friends and family can enjoy Aveda gift sets – a magical combination of wonderful products that are beautifully wrapped in sustainably sourced, handcrafted paper from Nepal. These are gifts that will delight your family and friends, make a significant contribution to the lives of Nepali women and their families, AND make you feel good about giving them!

Watch this video to learn what this is all about.



At the top of the world in the Himalayas of Nepal, things are changing for the better for many families and the forests as well.

It started a decade ago, when Aveda began looking for partners to make beautiful handcrafted paper for our holiday gifts. We wanted paper that was sustainably sourced–and we found it – lokta bark paper from Nepal.

Aveda learned that the people of Nepal had been making Lokta bark paper since the twelfth century. It was used for royal decrees because it’s traditionally believed to last for 1,000 years. Today we use it to cover all of our gift boxes in green paper, all year long.

In our six years* of purchasing this durable paper, we have bought over 1,400,000 sheets, which has given employment to more than 4,900** people in remote villages with few opportunities for work. An amazing 91% of the paper makers are women, who give back to their communities and save money in cooperatives, ensuring a better future. 2,400 families have directly benefited from Aveda’s purchase of handcrafted paper. It has helped 5,470 children to attend school—many from very poor families who could not otherwise afford an education.

Our paper purchase has also benefited the environment. Forest groups help protect 34,000 acres of forest that provide Lokta bark for our gift set paper—which has received Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. Our Lokta bark paper has also earned Wildlife Friendly certification, which means it helps protect the beautiful diversity of Himalayan wildlife. Protecting the forest not only preserves habitat but also fights climate change. This is a gift for all of us.

We believe you give joy with each gift covered in Lokta bark paper from Nepal.

*2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012. **Full and part-time.

Remember, these are limited-edition holiday gift sets. Each box is wrapped in the sustainably harvested, handcrafted Nepali paper.
It’s never too early to start stocking up. Gift sets, packages and stocking stuffers are available at all three Namaste locations:  Namaste An Aveda Concept Salon on 9th Avenue, Namaste on Broadway and Namaste Pure Design Studio.

New to hair color?

Are you thinking of trying hair color for the first time? Or, perhaps you’re ready for a change?
Aveda Full Spectrum Hair Color
The hair stylists at Namaste Aveda hair salons in Denver know that any decision about hair color can be both exciting AND nerve-wrecking. This is especially true if you’re visiting a brand-new hair salon. Because there are so many options and you want to make certain that you get ideal results, this is not a decision to be made lightly.

The key is interaction with your hair stylist/colorist. It could seem “silly” but exploring your lifestyle (such as your profession, whether or not your have children, are you a homebody or frequent tourist, are you a “back to nature” type or “celeb wanna be” …), along with an honest discussion about how much maintenance will be called for and what it will cost is important! Explain, or show your colorist an image, of the look you’re after so he or she can describe the best solution(s).

It’s our job to make your choice of hair color and your appointment as stress-free as possible. We’ve created this post to respond to some of the concerns you may have prior to coming in for services.

Temporary Color

Temporary color, which includes no ammonia and just a small percentage of peroxide, can only be used to darken hair. Over time, the shade fades to a translucent stain, but the roots have to be maintained to avoid a mismatched appearance. Temporary color is the least-damaging hair color procedure.

Demi-Permanent

This type of color is excellent for covering grey; it can only darken hair, not lighten it. Again, the roots need to be maintained every 4 to 6 weeks. The formula consists of peroxide, but no ammonia.

Permanent Color

Permanent hair color, which contains both peroxide and ammonia, can make hair darker or a couple of shades lighter, and offers superb coverage for gray. The color lasts until roots grow out, which then need to be retouched every 4 to 6 weeks.

Glossing/Glazing

This procedure includes using a semi-permanent shade on the hair for a brief time frame to darken hair a little or to change its tonality (as an example, transforming an ash blonde to a golden brownish shade). Clear glossing/glazing is also offered to add luster and shine to hair without changing the color. Glossing or glaze should be reapplied every couple of weeks.

Highlights

Highlights, which involve the use of bleach or permanent color to lighten hair, are great for blending grays. The roots need to be touched up every three months.

Lowlights

Permanent or demi-permanent color is used to darken parts of lighter hair. Lowlights may additionally be used to mix or blend grays. Roots must be retouched on an as-needed basis – normally at least every three months.

Baliage

A lightener (powder bleach) is hand-painted onto sections of hair to emphasize the lines and layers of a hairstyle. The color will grow out, and roots aren’t noticeable because the color isn’t applied as close to the roots as it is with other hair color processes.

Keeping Your Color
When your hair color begins to fade, it’s late to return it to its initial shade with color-enhancing shampoos and conditioners. That’s why we advise at-home maintenance from the start. The Aveda Color Conserve products are great – remember to take home some Color Conserve Daily Color Protect!

Be sure to protect your hair color by staying away from salt water, chlorine, and sunlight as much as possible. You may also want to wash your hair less frequently to help prolong the brilliance of your freshly-colored hair.
