How Invati Can Fix Your Thinning Hair

November 11, 2012

Amber is a stylist at SALON by milk + honey 2nd Street District.

Ladies, is the man in your life concerned about thinning hair? Often, men feel defeated by the idea of thinning hair. There are many treatments on the market that claim to increase hair growth but often they are not effective. Also, there are plenty of products where you have no idea what the active ingredients really are, and if they are actually safe to use on your scalp. Fortunately, at SALON by milk + honey we carry a revolutionary hair care system from Aveda that uses a system of 97% naturally-derived products that reduce hair loss by 33% to help improve growth and keep the hair you have longer. It’s safe to use, effective and has no nasty side effects like some known prescription treatments. The system is called Invati.

The plant-powered Invati system is formulated with Aveda’s Densiplex, an invigorating complex of Ayurvedic herbs with turmeric and ginseng, which helps energize and rehabilitate the scalp around the follicles when massaged in. There are three parts of this system that your man (or a woman with thinning hair) can use to achieve optimum results.

  • Invati Exfoliating shampoo cleanses, exfoliates and renews the scalp to remove the build up of sebum and product residue that can clog pores and inhibit growth.
  • Invati Thickening conditioner improves hair strength and is clinically proven to thicken hair strands.
  • Invati Scalp Revitalizer contains Aveda’s Densiplex system that energizes and rehabilitates follicles to increase hair growth while creating the optimum environment for healthy hair.

These three products are amazing and proven to work.  I am inspired to teach clients the benefits of this system as well as how to used it properly and would love to have a consultation with you or someone you know that is concerned with thinning hair.

Hair Across America: Fall’s Top Color and Cut Trends

From Lily Kwong and Lena Dunham both chopping it all off—Lily to a bob, Lena to a pixie—in the midst of New York Fashion Week to brunette Erika Bearman’s (aka OscarPRGirl’s) radical turn as an ice blonde just last week, change is in the air this fall. We checked in with some of the top salons across the country to find out what style and color trends are turning heads this season.­

The Salon: Salon by milk + honey
The Look: Red
“Everyone’s going red this season. Even my blonde clients are going auburn and chestnut,” says stylist Amanda Lee. “Depending on how bold the client wants to be, I’ll pick three shades that are really close to each other in level, but vary the tone—for example, a red-red, a copper red, and a mahogany red. Then I’ll section out the hair and apply the tones in a blocking pattern. When the hair falls, you see all three colors simultaneously but can’t tell where they’re coming from. The effect is really soft and dimensional.”
Salon by milk + honey, 237 West 3rd Street; color with Amanda Lee, from $65.
