Such a great way to reuse a juice container!

The newest haircare line to hit Aveda shelves, the invatitm system for thinning hair. It is 97%* naturally derived and reduces hair loss by 33%** to help you keep the hair you have longer. The invati system features Aveda’s proprietary Densiplextm blend featuring turmeric and ginseng. These powerful ingredients help to energize and rehabilitate the scalp around the follicles.

invatitm exfoliating shampoo

Cleanses, exfoliates and renews with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid. Clinically proven to remove the buildup of sebum and product residue that can clog pores.

invatitm thickening conditioner

Thickens with a blend of guar, palm and rapeseed-derived ingredients that create a weightless surface. Arginine derived from sugar beets and hydrolyzed soy protein restores strength and improves hair elasticity.

invatitm scalp revitalizer

Energizes and rehabilitates scalp around the follicles. Turmeric and ginseng promote denser, stronger, thicker-looking hair. Clinical testing shows hair density increased up to 7% after 12 weeks when used in conjunction with invatitm exfoliating shampoo and invatitm thickening conditioner.

Stop into Aveda John Hancock Center for a scalp consultation and a sample of invatitm shampoo and conditioner while supplies last.

*From plants and non-petroleum materials. 

**Due to breakage in a 12-week clinical test of invati system.


La Chanh Nguyen’s moss carpet brings a little green into your bathroom in an unconventionally natural way. This living bathmat features three types of green mosses that grow in plastazote, a decay-free, recycled latex foam. This mat will certainly liven up your shower space, and it’s wonderfully low maintenance. Because moss flourishes in damp, humid places, your bathroom is the ideal location for the moss carpet — even the green-thumb challenged can keep it alive!

It’s a drive-thru Starbucks made from an old shipping container. This is such a great way to reuse materials that would have been scrapped. Stop by this location if you’re ever in Tukwila, Washington.
