Mindful Colouring

 

Wellness is a part of the Aveda DNA and we are committed to sharing all the ways you can feel a sense of calm and wellbeing amongst to busy pace of life. We all make efforts to carve out time to relax and unwind, whether it is an in-salon pampering or an at-home slow-Sunday routine. Sometimes the relaxation of switching off from the daily grind can be found in a creative activity as much as in stillness.

 

The practice of mindful colouring has been shown by researchers to significantly reduce anxiety levels. Studies reveal just 45 minutes of creative activity can reduce your stress, regardless of artistic experience or talent*. From mandalas and nature scenes to endless geometric prints - once you get in the zone who knows when you will want to stop!

Chakra 5 is located in the throat and relates to creativity, self-expression and communication.

 

When the throat chakra is balanced, one has inner reliance, self-reliance and easily expresses ideas and thoughts.

 

The Chakra 5 Aroma consists of Organic grapefruit, rosemary and ylang ylang.

 

“The chakra system is the symbolic presentation of energies which exist in the body influenced
by the subconscious mind. Yoga and meditation help you awaken those energies for the most
balanced state of the body, mind and soul.” - The Drs. Upadhyay, Maharshi Bhardwaj Clinic &

FAVOURITE AVEDA

Masquing while you practice
mindful colouring

The botanical repair intensive strengthening masque offers hair strengthening after just one use. Our hair mask is available in two formulations so you can choose the best one for your hair’s needs.
Great for your hair.
Better for the Earth.

The expert combination of plant-derived technologies that focus on three key layers of hair sets our standard, forever changing the way we strengthen and help protect hair. The plant-derived bond-multiplying molecule penetrates to the inner cortex to strengthen hair from within. A nourishing macro green blend with avocado, green tea and sacha inchi oils smooths the cuticle to detangle and help prevent breakage. The third technology is a plant-derived complex which mimics the hair's outer f-layer to help protect hair.

If you want thicker, fuller-looking tresses, you’ll want to try the invati advanced intensive hair and scalp masque. This collection harnesses the wisdom of Ayurveda, the ancient healing art of India to add fullness to thinning hair.

The certified organic amla in this 98% naturally derived* formula helps instantly thicken hair from root to tip. This treatment works by plumping each individual hair strand, making hair thicker. Plant-based polymers help give fullness that lasts all day. Ginseng and certified organic turmeric, the other Ayurvedic star ingredients, help invigorate the scalp when massaged in.

The mask also hydrates and deeply nourishes hair and scalp with a blend of plant oils, plus twice the kukui oil*** for added nourishment. This makes it a great choice for those with dry hair or if you’re looking for a nourishing scalp treatment. One of our favorite hair treatments, this lightweight formula won’t build up or weigh down hair. Plus, it’s free of silicone, parabens, mineral oil and other synthetic ingredients, giving you fuller hair without compromise.
