We all need moments to relax and recharge—it’s how we replenish our mind, body and soul. But finding a routine that fits into your schedule can be a challenge. We’re making it easy to carve out time for yourself with our Ritual of Repair. Read on to discover all of our favorite vegan calming essentials included in the ritual, plus we’ll walk you through each step.
Our Ritual of Repair features the 100% vegan hair products from our bond-building botanical repair™ collection. 94% naturally derived,* botanical repair™ is our revolutionary hair care system that repairs hair from the inside out.
It targets three key layers of hair to strengthen and protect each strand, all with the power of plants. We formulated this cruelty-free line for all hair types and textures, so everyone can experience stronger, shinier and visibly healthier hair. Included in this silicone-free collection are also hair treatments for damaged hair, crafted to deliver deep repair.
In this ritual, you’ll use the botanical repair™ strengthening shampoo sample along with either the botanical repair™ strengthening conditioner sample or the travel-size botanical repair™ intensive strengthening masque light or rich. Lastly, you’ll use the botanical repair™ strengthening leave-in treatment sample.
Our shampoo for damaged hair luxuriously cleanses to gently remove excess sebum, while the conditioner instantly detangles to prevent breakage. Both build bonds in hair to improve hair strength.
The botanical repair™ intensive strengthening masque offers deep hair repair after just one use. Our hair mask is available in two formulations so you can choose the best one for your hair’s needs. Lastly, the leave-in treatment helps protect against heat damage up to 450 degrees, while reducing frizz. It instantly repairs hair as it smooths, all in a no-rinse formula for an easy hair treatment you’ll love.
A warm cup of tea is one of our favorite ways to unwind and let the day melt away. aveda comforting tea included in our Ritual of Repair is our fan-favorite soothing herbal infusion. Certified organic and caffeine-free, it’s crafted with licorice root and peppermint to help calm your senses and promote a sense of well-being.
We couldn’t create the Ritual of Repair without this Aveda best-seller: our iconic travel-size hand relief™ moisturizing creme. 95% naturally derived,* it helps sooth seriously dry hands. Andiroba oil and plant hydrators intensely nourish and moisturize for softer, smoother skin.
AVEDA MINI PADDLE BRUSH
The last essential in the Ritual of Repair is our favorite mini paddle brush, perfectly sized for quick scalp massages. Extended bristles also make detangling easy.
Repair your hair. Soothe with self-care.
Now that you have your self-care items at the ready, it’s time to start relaxing.
First choose where you’d like to begin your ritual, the shower or the bath. If you prefer a shower, once you turn on the water, begin tuning out the world. As the water flows down from the shower head, close your eyes and imagine that white light is being poured over you. Picture it washing away all the stress and filling you with a healing light.
If you prefer the bathtub, tune into the calming sound of the water filling the tub. Breathe in slowly through your nose, hold your breath for a count of five and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Repeat a few times while the water fills the bath.
RITUAL OF REPAIR
Step 1. Gently cleanse your hair with botanical repair™ strengthening shampoo. Next use either the botanical repair™ strengthening conditioner or your preferred intensive strengthening masque. If using the masque, apply throughout damp hair. Leave in for 2-5 minutes while breathing in the luscious pure-fume™ aroma of pure flower and plant essences.
Step 2. Rinse and towel dry your hair. With the mini paddle brush, massage your scalp all over in a circular motion. Pat your entire scalp lightly with the bristles. Brush through your hair.
Step 3. Apply botanical repair™ strengthening leave-in treatment throughout hair and style as desired.
Step 4. Begin heating water to make a cup of comforting tea.
Step 5. Apply hand relief™ moisturizing creme to hands. Use your thumb to massage the palm of one hand in circular motions. Massage the thick muscles at the base of the thumb, and also where the bones of the index finger and thumb meet. Repeat with your other hand.
Step 6. When the water starts to boil, remove from heat and steep comforting tea for 3-5 minutes. Relax with a book, meditate, or listen to music as you sip a bit of bliss. Take all the time you need.
Our Ritual of Repair puts relaxation at your fingertips, with essentials that help unwind, relax and repair.
