A Luxe, New Self-Care Regimen Featuring Aveda

With Aveda’s iconic aromas and vegan, cruelty-free products made from nature’s most amazing ingredients, these premier collections meet at the intersection of luxury and high performance. Try making a gift set with these best-selling products!


Aveda’s “hero” collections use powerhouse botanicals to make tresses healthier looking and feeling, shinier, and easier to manage and style. All three collections come in Light and Rich formulas suitable for all hair types and textures.

Botanical Repair™ — For hair REPAIR. Crafted with plant-derived, bond-building molecules and a macro green blend featuring certified organic green tea, avocado and sacha inchi seed oils, it instantly strengthens hair and restores softness and shine.

Nutriplenish — For hair HYDRATION. Formulated with intense nutrient-powered superfoods such as mango butter and organic coconut and pomegranate oils, this line’s products deliver long-lasting replenishing moisture to hair of all types, textures and thicknesses.

Invati Advanced™ — For hair THICKENING. This collection’s powerful ingredients include certified organic turmeric and ginseng to stimulate hair growth and promote thicker, fuller hair for every texture. The 3-part Invati Advanced™ system starts at the scalp to exfoliate and stimulate hair growth, strengthen hair from root to end and condition weightlessly.


Like its hair care lines, Aveda’s skin care collections are created with sustainably-sourced, powerful botanical ingredients.

Tulasāra™ Creme — This line is formulated to enhance natural radiance, smooth fine lines, and fight environmental stressors. There’s the Tulasāra™ Renewing Radiance Creme for daytime, and the Tulasāra™ Firming Sleeping Masque and the Brightening Sleeping Eye Masque for overnight.

Botanical Kinetics™ Serums — Think of this trio of high-performance serums as a power drink for your skin. Each formula is infused with powerful plant-derived acids and contains over 10,000 plant stem cells. Choose from the Botanical Kinetics™ Intense Hydrator, the Botanical Kinetics™ Instant Luminizer, and the Botanical Kinetics™ Pore Refiner.

Inhale Relaxation, Exhale Tension with Replenishing Body Care

Stress-Fix™ — What better gift than less stress? Bring the spa to her with Aveda’s certified organic lavender, lavandin, and clary sage formulations, clinically proven to reduce stress through the science of aromaology as it nourishes and softens skin.

Chakra™ Balancing Body Sprays — Using the power of aromatherapy, these essential oil blends help to balance the chakras, the body’s energy centers known in Ayurveda to influence well-being and beauty. With a specific formulation for each of the seven chakras, these sprays can be used as a body mist, room freshener, or to spritz on bedding before a good night’s sleep.

Hand Relief™ & Foot Relief™ — Moms are busy running their world, and their hands and feet make this possible. Give them the TLC they need with Aveda’s Hand Relief™ and Foot Relief™, formulated to bring long-lasting moisture and replenishment even to severely dry skin. For extra oomph, add the Hand Relief™ Night Renewal Serum, a restorative hydrating plant blend that plumps and smooths fine lines as she sleeps.

Aveda Signature Aroma Body Care — Moisturize and renew skin with lotions, body washes and more featuring Aveda’s signature scents.

Rosemary Mint provides invigorating freshness and sharpens focus with certified organic rosemary, peppermint and spearmint. Cherry Almond is a naturally sweet scent with almond oil, cherry blossom, ylang-ylang and certified organic orange to condition and nourish skin.

Masque Up With Aveda’s New Weekly Hydrating Treatment

What’s our favorite resolution this year? Staying hydrated (yes—that means your hair, too!). With Aveda’s newest addition to the Nutriplenish line, it’s easy to never let your hair get parched.

Is your hair chronically dry? Do you want to treat your textured hair to extra TLC? Are you looking to replace frizz with shiny and defined curls and coils? Then this product is for you! Designed to use as a weekly treatment in addition to Nutriplenish Shampoo and Conditioner, this masque is just what you need to quench thirsty hair—for good.

Introducing Aveda’s new Nutriplenish Treatment Masque.

Treat yourself to pure hydration in a bottle. This nutrient-powered treatment intensely moisturizes and conditions for lush locks, while treating dry and brittle strands without the weigh-down. Containing 4x the hydration of untreated hair, this treatment packs a punch—and a medley of superfoods (mango, pomegranate oil and coconut oil, for starters!)

How to incorporate this powerhouse into your beauty regimen:

  1. Use weekly after shampooing as an ultra-hydrating treatment
  2. Apply to damp hair from root to tip
  3. Leave on for 2-5 minutes before rinsing thoroughly

Pro tip: Need an extra boost? You can even use this product as an overnight conditioning treatment or as a leave-in treatment. For bonus relaxation, apply a hot towel over the hair masque and soak in the self-care.

Choose your fighter: Light Moisture vs. Deep Moisture

Imagine if you could formulate a product that delivers just the right amount of hydration for your hair’s type and texture—not too much, and not too little. With the Nutriplenish Treatment Masque, you can! This product is available in two varieties: Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Light Moisture and Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Deep Moisture.  Choose the treatment best suited to your hair’s individual needs to prevent oily buildup and flat strands from too much moisture, or dry locks and frizz from not enough.

The Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Light Moisture might be right for you if …

  • You desire an ultra-light gel cream that hydrates without weighing your hair down
  • You have fine to medium hair of any texture (coily, curly, wavy, or straight)

The Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Deep Moisture might be right for you if …

  • You desire a decadent cream that restores moisture to even the driest hair
  • You have medium to thick hair of any texture (coily, curly, wavy, or straight)
  • You need 2.5x more butters and oils than the Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Light Moisture

Pro tip: Confused and dealing with oily roots and dry ends? Double-masquing is always an option! Try applying the Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Light Moisture from roots to midshaft and the Nutriplenish Treatment Masque Deep Moisture from midshaft to ends for the perfect combo.
