It will take care of your body from head to toe as it provides a smoothing, and moisturizing feeling leaving your hair and skin clean but not dry.

After Sun Hair Masque This intensive cream masque moisturizes with tamanu, coconut and palm oils while protecting against free radicals with an anti oxidizing blend of green tea extract and vitamin E. Amy, an Aveda lover reviewed this product and stated, “Within three days this product completely fixed my hair. I was stunned. I’ve never had a product work so effectively on my hair. It is now healthy looking, shiny, super soft, and my dead ends have been repaired. I’ve used it as a deep conditioning masque once (I left it in for 45 minutes), and have rubbed a pea sized amount into my damp hair each time after showering. This is hands down the best product I’ve tried on my hair.”

Protective Hair Veil Voted in SHAPE magazine for the Sun Smart Awards, it is truly the ultimate sun protector for all pre and post sun activities. It is safe for all hair types, using wintergreen and cinnamon as sunscreen agents, not synthetics. The hair veil is a light weight water resistant UV defense mist which also helps prevent any breakage or fading to color treated hair. Users love this product because it instantly detangles, it is light, not greasy, and leaves your hair soft and shiny. Spray evenly on dry or damp hair before and during sun exposure. Reapply after swimming.
