Keep your hair healthy while you grow it out!

Im pretty sure EVERYONE is growing their hair out these days, but it never seems to grow fast enough amiright? Ive been using Aveda products for a few years now and I dont think I could ever go back because nothing feel the same. Aveda is so natural and free of synthetics so your hair isnt coated and weighed down and left feeling unnatural. After using Aveda hair care for some time now, I can immediately tell the difference in my hair if I use something different. With that being said, here are a few things that have been helping my sister and I grow our hair, and make it stronger and healthy between regular trims* :)

Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment ($35.00)

• Part of a four-step restructuring system
• Helps strengthen hair weakened by chemical processes, heat styling and environmental exposure
• Quinoa protein penetrates the hair shaft, working from inside to help strengthen and repair
• Phellodendron and barley seal in moisture
• Castor, jojoba and meadowfoam seed oils smooth hair’s surface

Your hair goes through so much on a daily basis thermal heat, coloring, environmental challenges  and so on. I use this about once a week to make sure I get some protein back.

Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil ($27.00)

• 99.9% naturally derived,* with the hydrating power of buriti oil
• Instantly moisturizes hair by 41%**
• Leaves hair soft and full of shine
• Formulated without silicone, so it takes only a few drops to moisturize hair

Buriti oil comes from the buriti tree which literally grows in water. Its called the tree of life. Youre getting all the wet-wellness in your hair! This oil is comparable to Moroccan or argon oil. I like to use this wet or dry, whether I blow dry or not.. Its my go to. You can use it anyway.

Brilliant Damage Control ($18.00)

• For all hair types
• Protects against thermal damage
• Reduces breakage from combing
• Helps protect against UV damage

I actually dont use this one anymore personally. (I use a heat protectant from their smooth infusion line to help soften smooth and tame frizz because thats my personal issue with my hair). BUT this is great for any hair type and it also works as a detangler, not just a heat protecter. 

Nature’s Bounty: Hair, Skin, & Nails (apx $17.00)

I dont have fancy bullet points for this one, but this has been recommended to me multiple times and also by 2 licensed nurses. So far I havent had any poor reactions to it. You can read more testimonials on any grocery store that sells it or find more info on their website here 

*For most trims (or color services) my sister and I receive, we also get “botanical therapy express treatments” done at (my) Aveda salon. They are more intensive treatment versions of the Damage (and Dry) Remedy masque shown above. 


As the seasons change and the Farmer’s Almanac predicts another insane winter here in Covington, you may start to get a little bit concerned about the state of your hair. Giant wool beanies might look awesome on Kristen Stewart and Ryan Gosling, but is that your only option this year? Here are some frequently asked questions about winter hair and our best answers to keep you looking sharp throughout the holiday season.

Q. Static is driving me crazy. Seriously crazy. How can I get rid of it?

A. A lack of moisture in your locks can very easily contribute to static build up. Be sure to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner (like Aveda’s Dry Remedy) when you’re washing your hair and throw in an extra styling product (like Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight) to tame those unruly flyaways. Rub a dime-sized amount into your hands, smooth it onto towel dried hair, blowdry like normal.  Keep Dry Remedy Oil in your bag for the random acts of static that appear through out the day and that static should be gone with the wind.

Q. Speaking of wind, will that jerk polar vortex make my hair more brittle?

A. Dry, cold air can cause damage not only to your hair, but to your skin as well. The best way to protect yourself is to bundle up whenever you have to go outside.  Cold air zaps any moisture from hair and skin. Cover up in hats, scarves, giant parkas – you name it. The more covered up you are, the less the elements can reach your skin and your hair. Pro tip to all those wash and go-ers: do NOT head outside with wet hair in the winter! Not only are you risking extra breakage, you’re inviting Jack Frost to gift you with a serious sinus infection right before the holidays.

Q. How can I keep my skin from looking like a dried up alligator?

A. Help prevent scaly and cracked skin by drinking more water.  After bathing you can also apply Aveda’s Beautifying Composition Oil which helps to seal in moisture.  Drinking more water also helps you detox and will make sure your skin is clear of break outs.  When we’re not taking in enough h2o, all those holiday party impurities find a way of popping up through your pores.

Q. Are split ends more common in the winter?

A. Absolutely.  Now that we established you are less likely to leave your home with a wet head you are probably blasting your hair with a little more heat than normal.  And again, that dry air leaves hair more susceptible to breakage. Popping in to see us and getting your ends trimmed more often will always help but if you’re on the go and busy shopping for everyone on your list, just be sure to use moisture laden shampoos, conditioners, and styling products. The proteins and moisturizers in Aveda’s Damage Remedy line will help beef up those brittle ends so that your hair will look fabulous long into the springtime!



Hello Salon Echo Tumblr followers! Today’s product spotlight is the Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment. As we all know, healthy hair begins with reparation of all damage done to it. It’s hard to avoid damage, and just about everything we do breaks or weakens our hair (sleeping on it, wearing ponytails too often, brushing, heat styling, coloring, etc.). This Intensive Restructuring Treatment is a deep conditioner that infuses the hair with quinoa proteins to strengthen and reinforce. It also contains jojoba oils that give hair its healthy, shiny glow back! Simply leave on 2-5 minutes after shampooing and rinse thoroughly once a week.

Aveda Damage Remedy

I will be totally honest and admit that before I got a job within a John Lewis beauty department, I had never actually heard of Aveda before, but my friend John who works for the brand offered me some samples after me complaining about the condition of my hair. 

My hair has been bleached, brunetted, blow dried and straightened to within an inch of it’s life for several years now, and was getting to the point that I was leaving blonde hairs everywhere, and the ends were snapping off, not a nice look!

Aveda is made from naturally derived ingredients, and is a wide professional haircare range. After testing my hair for elasticity he recommended Damage Remedy which is restructuring, and conditioning for stressed out hair! A little sceptical I accepted the shampoo and conditioner samples and oh my gosh within one use I was a convert. I now have 2 litres of shampoo in the shower!

It gives me that gorgeous silky, fresh from the hairdressers feel whilst keeping it nice and clean for about 3 days. Since using it I have had several comments about how healthy my hair is looking which I have never had before! It smells very herbally which I’m taking a little time to get used to but it’s relaxing and pleasant and guys would have no problem using it too :) 

It is slightly on the pricey side (shampoo starts from £19.50 and conditioner from £21.50), but I have to say totally worth it. I would recommend popping into either your local Aveda salon or department store and have one of the trained staff help you select whats right for your hair and if you’re brave ask for some samples before buying so you can experience the magic :) 

- I was not paid for this nor asked to write this post it’s my honest opinion :)

The prospect of a new addition [Her Majesty’s third pregnancy] reawakened the dormant, but not forgotten, issue of the family name. This time, a helpful cleric took the Duke’s side. In December, the Bishop of Carlisle declared that he did not like to think of any child ‘born in wedlock’ being deprived of the right and privilege of every other legitimate child. Since, he reminded his congregation, the Windsor dynasty unquestionably ‘set a noble example of family life,’ he hoped that the Queen would secure her future child’s birthright.[24-cite for a 1959 article in The Times] His hope was fulfilled.

It was the Queen who brought up the issue which had so rankled with her husband, and sought to remedy the damage done in 1952. [Prime Minister] Macmillan was in South Africa. At the end of January, Butler - as acting premier - sent him a telegram in Johannesburg saying that at his first audience the Queen had raised the 1952 decision [to keep the dynastic name of Windsor], and that she had ‘absolutely set her heart’ on a change.[25-two things cited: a biography of RA Butler by Howard & a book titled “Elizabeth and Philip” by Higham and Moseley] Lord Mountbatten, ever interested in such matters, may possibly have had something to do with it. According to Lord Beaverbrook, the Queen, while wishing to retain ‘Windsor’ in the name, ‘sympathizes with her husband’s feelings and more particularly with the overtures of his uncle.’[26-two cites: Parker’s The Queen, and Lord Beaverbrook papers] At the beginning of the reign it had been Uncle Dickie’s ‘overtures’ that had bothered Churchill. Macmillan, however, bore none of the fierce prejudices of his predecessor-but-one against the Mountbatten clan, and wanted - once again - to please the Queen. A double-barrelled name for future generations was therefore proposed. 

Macmillan recorded at the time that the Lord Chancellor came up with a formula according to which ‘the name of the House, Family and Dynasty [is] to be Windsor - the name of any “de-royalized” grandson, etc., of the Queen and Prince Philip to be “Mountbatten-Windsor.”’[27-cites Macmillan diaries] The matter was soberly discussed in Cabinet, with Butler presiding. According to the Lord Chancellor, the Queen had no desire to alter the name of ‘the Royal House and Family of Windsor,’ but she indicated that ‘those members of the Royal Family who would have to use a surname,’ because they were no longer entitled to be called Prince or Princess, should use the new one.[28-cites Cabinet Conclusions from the Public Record Office] Some ministers expressed misgivings, but eventually agreed that the Queen’s wishes on this occasion, unlike eight years earlier, should be respected. Afterwards Butler conveyed the news to the heavily pregnant Monarch, who asked him to tell the Prime Minister that ‘it took a great load off her mind.’[29-cites Howard’s biography of Butler]

Pimlott, Ben. The Queen: A Biography of Elizabeth II. HarperCollins, 1996.

The Royal Family name of Windsor was confirmed by The Queen after her accession in 1952. However, in 1960, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh decided that they would like their own direct descendants to be distinguished from the rest of the Royal Family (without changing the name of the Royal House), as Windsor is the surname used by all the male and unmarried female descendants of George V.

It was therefore declared in the Privy Council that The Queen’s descendants, other than those with the style of Royal Highness and the title of Prince/Princess, or female descendants who marry, would carry the name of Mountbatten-Windsor.

For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.The surname Mountbatten-Windsor first appeared on an official document on 14 November 1973, in the marriage register at Westminster Abbey for the marriage of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips.A proclamation on the Royal Family name by the reigning monarch is not statutory; unlike an Act of Parliament, it does not pass into the law of the land. Such a proclamation is not binding on succeeding reigning sovereigns, nor does it set a precedent which must be followed by reigning sovereigns who come after.Unless The Prince of Wales chooses to alter the present decisions when he becomes king, he will continue to be of the House of Windsor and his grandchildren will use the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.
