Aveda is celebrating Earth Month in a big way this year! Entering its 10th year of supporting Global Greengrants in providing access to clean water in communities all around the world, they are changing lives — one candle at a time.
When you buy a limited-edition Light The Way candle ($12), you do more than just fill the room with warm spicy aromas of ginger and ginger lily. 100% of the purchase price helps protect water for animals, kids and the environment. Greengrants Fund support over 1,500 water projects such as the one in India that has helped the children who drew the artwork that inspired this year’s candle box! The scent is light and exotic, made with 100% certified organic essential oils and naturally-derived soy wax. It is made with 100% reclaimed glass beverage bottles and the outer carton is from 90% post-consumer recycled paperboard. Sounds like an easy way to make a difference!
New Aveda Love Composition Oil ($30) is your year-long must-have for any beauty blunder. It helps restore moisture and delivers instant radiance! Use for just about anything…hair, face, body — you name it! It’s awesome in the bath, under moisturizer or foundation, and fabulous for hair! Sensual aroma with Australian sandalwood, certified organic jasmine, vetiver and frankincense. I love mixing some with my foundation. It gives your face endless glow without looking greasy, and adds all-day hydration. Aveda donates $4 of every purchase to the National Audubon Society for projects that fight climate change.

The Smooth Infusion Nourishing Styling Creme ($26) is a creamy elixir that nourishes hair and helps fight frizz in intense humidity. Perfect for all hair types, it will keep curls in place and minimize fly-aways. Aveda’s signature scent leaves hair perfumed all day — like you just left the spa. Apply it to towel dried hair and blow dry or allow to air dry.
The Light Elements Defining Whip ($24) is another fan favorite! With its airy, whipped, waxy texture, it is perfect for all hair types, even men! It lets you create texture-and medium hold without adding weight or stickiness. Apply a small amount to palms, rub together to emulsify, and work through dry hair to add texture and hold. Perfect for slicked back pony tails, keeping straight hair in place, or keeping away fly aways.
Another must have for the season, the Thickening Tonic ($28) works wonders for any hair type. Spray on thickening tonic thoroughly from roots to ends, in sections, then comb through to distribute evenly. Blow-dry your hair with a round brush, using a nozzle to direct the air down each section. Brush your dry hair into the style you want. If you don’t have time to blow dry, the amazing formula works while air drying too! Just spray some in whenever you need a boost, and tease hair at the root. You will have instant body without the weight, and the classic Aveda scent follows you around all day long.
Dry shampoos are all the rage, but the Shampure dry shampoo ($30) is a little different from the rest. The non-aerosol powder mist absorbs excess oil between shampoos. Unlike traditional dry shampoos that you spray to your roots, Aveda’s dry shampoo is a bit trickier. Tip bottle upside down. Return upright. Turn cap to expose nozzle. Lightly squeeze bottle to puff powder at roots. Massage powder into your scalp and restyle as desired. I found this process to take longer and distributing the product evenly a bit trickier. However, the oil absorption is amazing and the aroma, with 25 pure flower and plant essences, is nothing short off luxurious.

No hairstyle is ever perfect without the finishing touches. Enter Air Control ($9-$28) and Control Force ($10.50 – $30) hairsprays. Air Control is a medium hold that won’t weigh down the hair or leave it crunchy. Control Force is a heavier hold — perfect for thicker hair or fancy hairstyles and the best against humidity. Both sprays have net-zero climate impact.
