Save time, water - and your hair - as you support water charities by leaving your locks for longer between washes. Beauty Editor Stephanie Smith finds out more from Aveda. Plus Celeb Get the Look and beauty products of the week.
Many of us will admit to being more than a little obsessed with our hair, often washing it daily – an extravagant use of water, and one we surely take for granted.
April is Earth Month, an initiative to support clean water projects across the globe.
Aveda UK has been supporting WaterAid for eight years and has raised more than £855,000 to fund vital clean water and hygiene projects in Ethiopia, Nepal and most recently India.
Aveda is now inviting people to pledge to go an extra day without washing their hair and dry style instead to save water in solidarity with the 844 million people globally living without clean water.
Aveda global educator Bea Watson has these hair hacks...
Second-day hair can be the day where hair has an increase in volume and grit as the smoothness of freshly washed hair begins to decrease. Use this natural volume to create a lived-in look that lasts, and without adding extra heat.
Puff Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo into the roots and massage into the scalp. Follow with a misting of Aveda Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner throughout mid-lengths and ends until your hair is damp to hydrate and detangle hair.
Create two disco bun twists, one on each side of the head, and pin in place. Use a hair dryer on a low heat to dry the buns and, once cool, gently unpin your hair to see natural, fresh looking waves.
Lightly spray Aveda Texture Tonic into your hands and scrunch into the hair to create a more undone, defined wave.
Here’s a style for third-day hair. Gently pull your hair back into a ponytail at whatever point of the head is most comfortable. Spray Aveda Air Control to capture any flyaways and to keep the ponytail stable but still flexible.
Puff Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo into the ponytail to add bulk and twist the ponytail around into a loose bun and pin into a knotted bun.
