Why We Love Aveda Color

From the most frequent of foilers to those all-natural alike, coloring your hair is always a curious feat. Ahead, we’re here to give you the lowdown on everything Aveda color—its ingredients, how long it lasts, how to maintain its vibrancy and, of course, all the reasons why we’re completely in love with it. (And why you’ll love it, too!)

One of our favorite things about Aveda color is its natural ingredients. Up to 99% naturally-derived, Aveda color contains nourishing plant-based ingredients and protective plant oils like jojoba, castor and sunflower. These plant oils help with shine and prevent unwanted damage—and some even have those dreamy Aveda smells for an even more elevated sensory spa experience.

Your colorist formulates each and every color, each and every time, making it completely customizable. We can blend something together as natural as you want—or make it bolder than you can ever dream of. (A consultation before your color appointment can help us determine exactly what you’re envisioning—so keep your muses close.)

Aveda color gives off a natural shine, well—naturally, thanks to its plant-based botanical ingredients. And because of Aveda color’s gentle and refreshing nature, getting a color service can actually be considered a treatment for your hair. For an additional boost of sheen and nourishment, we offer glossing services as an add-on to your color, like a Hair Color Shine Treatment. (It’s a big bonus to add serious moisture to your tresses if you need it.) Ask for it before your service—and be prepared for the serious wow-factor it brings after.


Aveda color is designed to be vibrant and fade-resistant, but the longevity of your hair color greatly depends on the kind you choose. Aveda’s Demi+ demi-permanent color lasts about 24 washes, and permanent color will remain until your hair grows out.

For extra color conservation and color-specific care, Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo, Conditioner, Strengthening Treatment and Daily Color Protect are all part of the Color Conserve system that completely changes the color-care game. The system protects color by preventing fading and maintaining its vibrancy, thanks to the plant-based power that seals in hair cuticles. It’s nourishing—not stripping—formulas retain radiance and bolster your hairs’ strength, so you can make your color-treated hair life your very best life.
