Celebrate Earth Month with 5 Fab Aveda Products

April is Earth Month - around the globe and of course at Portfolio! We're proud to join our world-wide Aveda partners to celebrate the month and Earth Day (April 22) with our commitment to making the environment a better one. Here are five fabulous products you can use to join us in this effort. Do good, smell good, and feel good!

1. Show You Care Shampure Hand and Body Wash

Since 1999, Aveda has raised over $60 million dollars to bring clean water to those who need it the most. Each year, Aveda donates 100% of a special product purchase to this important cause. In the past, Aveda offered a limited-edition aroma candle, the Light the Way candle - but this year's center of attention is the limited-edition Show You Care Shampure Hand and Body Wash!

Aveda has partnered with the organization charity: water to raise funds to provide clean water to areas all around the world that need it the most. The charity: water organization is 100% privately funded, so any public donations go directly to those in need of fresh, clean water. 100% of the sales of Show You Care Shampure Hand and Body Wash will be donated to charity: water. It seems like a small step just to purchase a product you love, but it's a great way to support the environmental efforts in place to provide an essential and precious resource for all.

2. Rinseless Refresh Micellar Hair & Scalp Refresher

This is a new - and fantastic water-saving product - to feature during Earth Month because it's designed for non-shampoo days - known as "second day hair." It cleanses your scalp and revitalizes hair through the magic of micelles, which gently cleanse and purify.

This liquid spray instantly cleanses the scalp and refreshes the texture of second-day hair...perfect for those of you who don't wash your hair everyday (thank you, water-saving warriors!) Though it's great for all hair types, it's especially good for wavy, course, or coiled-curl tresses.

It's packed with botanicals like babassu betaine to lift impurities, rice protein to control frizz, and cornstarch to help provide light-weight hold. Its aroma is a sweet (but not too sweet) citrusy floral - think summer - that features jasmine, certified organic mandarin, lemon, and ylang ylang. Shake well, spray on, and massage in. That's all it takes to revive and refresh - and save water!

3. Heat Relief Thermal Protector & Conditioning Mist

This is another fantastic water-saver for non-shampoo days, and is the perfect partner to Rinseless Refresh! It's a light conditioning dry mist that protects when using heat to re-style hair, and is designed for all hair types and textures. Bonus! It's infused with one of our favorite, iconic aromas - Shampure! Filled with organic lavender, ylang ylang, petitgrain, and orange, Heat Relief's scent and benefits don’t disappoint. Shake well and spray lightly on dry hair (mid-length to ends) before using your favorite heat styling tool.

Note: This product replaces Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner

4. Shampure Dry Shampoo

Can you believe it? Yet another way to save water with the amazing Shampure Dry Shampoo! This dry, micro-mist powder refreshes and revives all hair types by absorbing excess oils and impurities at the root. Its calming Shampure aroma lends a moment of peace, even when you’re at your busiest. Even better for the environment? The packaging! Buy the pump version just once, and when it’s time to renew, buy the refill - less waste, and you’ll save a little money, too. It’s easy and fun to use - just turn the bottle upside down to deposit the product, turn upright, twist the nozzle open, and lightly squeeze the bottle to release the powder. Add more if you need it, then massage into roots and scalp. Restyle as desired and you’re good to go!

5. Pure Abundance Hair Potion

This magical potion that goes from powder to a light, absorbent liquid is not only a great styling product for extra, long-lasting volume, but it’s also great on non-shampoo days for absorbing excess oil and adding abundant volume. The key ingredient in this innovative product? Marshmallow Root Extract! Just emulsify a small amount in your hands and apply to damp or dry hair before a blow-dry. For non-shampoo days, simply sprinkle directly on the roots (don’t emulsify), then massage into your scalp and hair. Poof! And just like that, it’s volume with little effort, little waste, and no water usage.

All it takes is just a few small changes in your self-care routine to ensure a healthier planet. Thanks so much or doing your part!
