  • New Dry Remedy Oil Quenches Even the Driest, Parched Hair!

    Every once and a while a new product comes out that completely changes everything.  For me that product is the new Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.  I received a sample of this oil a few months ago and I am amazed by how much it has changed my hair!  Only 2 drops of the oil used on wet or dry hair adds tons of shine and moisture.  I was surprised that my hair behaved so much better when blowdrying and when I straightened it with a hot tool my hair had so much more shine and...

  • Why Men Should Know Salons Are NOT For Women Only

    There seems to be some stigma associated with men attending salons; so I'm here to tell you it is totally acceptable for men to go to a salon to get their hair cut.  Stylists are trained in all aspects of hair including men's cuts, and men deserve the same attention to hair as their counterparts.  In my experience men often have haircutting needs that cannot be met by their current discount haircut providers.

    What Aveda Products are Vegan Friendly?
