It’s hard to LOVE your hair when it’s flat, limp and won’t hold a style. Whether your hair is naturally thin (you prob have an amazing hair-tie collection), it’s thinning (don’t worry…we’ll talk), or if your hair needs a little more oomph, Aveda has products that turn up the volume!

1. Pure Abundance        Aveda’s Pure Abundance collection uses kaolin clay and acacia gum as natural bulking agents for weightless body and volume. The pre-style treatment and hairspray give you all-day hold, volume and the look of abundant hair.

1) Sun Care- Hair and Body Cleanser

This is completely color safe with a corn-derived chelator (that means it has a detox agent) that gently removes chlorine, salt and product residue. It has tamanu oil and organic coconut oil help maintain super moisturized hair. With green tea, certified organic sunflower oil and vitamin E, its the perfect magic bottle for summertime.

2) Sun Care- After Sun Hair Masque

This is perfect for after you come in from a long day in the sun. The after-sun formula works so well because it is rich in morikue™ protein. Tamanu oil and certified organic coconut oil are amazing moisturizers for your sun-exposed hair. Go grab one for your shower, ASAP.

3) Sun Care - Protective Hair Veil

This comes in at number 4 because it is a super lightweight, water-resistant and most importantly a UV DEFENSE misting spray. It forms an invisible screen to help protect your sun dried hair from over exposure to minimize damage and dryness.

4) Color Conserve - Daily Color Protect

This is a bomb leave in treatment that instantly, yes instantly, intensifies color radiance. It will seal and smooth your dehydrated, dull cuticle for an immediate increased shine. Intensify your color radiance with a lot of added shine—a beautiful start to any hot, summer day.

5) BLUE MALVA CONDITIONER

This blue (yes, its blue) conditioner will add a silvery brightness to your dull blonde hair. It neutralizes blondes and dark blondes, and even grey hair. It works so well because it was formulated with blue malva and coneflower, that is the magic trick to help impart your hair’s moisture and brightness.

Travel with Travel Sizes

“Life always

has us

on the

go,

but our hair doesn’t have to reflect that.”

We have all traveled somewhere from time to time, and probably have the same travel gripes. Whether having your favorite hair products trashed at TSA or having to desperately use bad hotel products, Aveda offers a remedy to your travel frustrations.

Travel Sizes: With such a large variety, you will look and feel great on every trip you take.

Cutting Specialist, Dave Lilya at Level Salon states, “I understand being a creature of habit and am so thankful that I can always be consistent with my look anywhere I go.”

Hold that thought, even if you are not traveling, Aveda travel sizes are a great way to try a new product before making a greater price investment. Dave says, “I’m confident that you’ll never find a product from Aveda you won’t like, but it does help transitioning from one type to another before fulling investing into the full size product. The last thing I LOVE about Aveda Travel Sizes, is that they make GREAT gifts at an alternative price.  They really are perfect for small mix and match style gifts.”

Dave adds, “The one thing I love about AVEDA, is that you will never go wrong with any of the products you choose. Aveda is constantly looking to better its carbon footprint within the environment, as we’ll as to better you the consumer. Aveda has always been a Guest first mentality company and thats what we strive for here at LEVEL SALON. We are proud to be your Tampa bay Aveda Salon.”

How to Care for your Tape-In Extensions

Level SalonSpa Cutting Specialist and Expert extensionist shares with us these tips to care for your tape in extensions. 

1. To sleep, wear your hair low and loose. Do not wear your hair up or in a tight bun for sleeping. 

2. For longevity, keep conditioner and deep conditioning masques off the bonds. Use only on the ends of the hair.

3. Always blow dry the bonds after getting your hair wet to avoid any slipping.

4. To avoid any dreading or twisting, do not over extend time between appointments.

5. Blow dry gently as to not pull too hard on the bonds.
