Spring Cleaning: Your Aveda Drawer

It’s that time of year again. When you look at the house you’ve been hibernating in throughout the Iowa winter and wonder.. “How Do I Live in This Pig Stye?”. Well, we hear you, and we’re on the same page. Maybe it’s because of re-watching the Marie Kondo special, or maybe it’s the sun finally shining through winter cave windows- but either way, your team at Trixie’s Aveda Salon has some advice:

Your Spring Cleaning Keep List from Aveda

While we would argue that there are SO many worthwhile Aveda products in our store, this list is curated by Tricia Rivas & Hannah Nuese. Hannah is a manager and image consultant at Trixie’s salon, best explained by her enneagram number of 4: The Individualist. Tricia is the owner and image consultant extraordinaire at Trixie’s Salon in Des Moines, and somehow finds time in the day for everything else.

So without further ado, here is your spring Aveda “keep list” from Tricia & Hannah:

Shampure Dry Shampoo

This product was at the top of the list for both Tricia and Hannah. Because duh- we always need dry shampoo to absorb oil- and will keep our hair smelling good! This Aveda Dry Shampoo helps extend a great blow dry, revive hair after a workout, refresh hair while traveling and transform hair before a night out.

Control Paste

This was also a product favorite of both Tricia and Hannah of Trixie’s Des Moines. Hannah loves the hair Control Paste by Aveda because it allows restyle and smooths flyaways, while also giving your hair hair a little shine. Apply the Aveda Control Paste to damp or dry hair prior to braiding or pony-tails to keep stray hairs together and maintain a smooth, controlled style.

Lip Saver by Aveda

Tricia swears by the soothing, moisturizing, balm containing naturally derived waxes. Just apply liberally to lips as needed, and use under any Aveda lip color. PS did you know that Aveda products are cruelty free? The team at Trixie’s Salon is onboard for this.

Texture Tonic

This one is a favorite of Hannah because it’s an actual beach spray that won’t make your hair crunchy. Hannah loves the freedom to be able to restyle her hair by spritzing in and scrunching. But most of all, the Texture Tonic by aveda gives her the waves that she didn’t get naturally. (We always want what we don’t have!).

Air Control

Tricia picked this product as a must have because of the flexible, light hold that comes with this hair spray. Even better, the Aveda Air Control is for all hair types, so there is no need to go through testing to find the perfect product.

Tinted moisturizer

Hannah chose the Aveda tinted moisturizer because it hydrates skin and gives a little bit of coverage at the same time. It’s an easy way to create a fresh face, even without a lot of other makeup. Can I get an OOOO ya?


This one is another Tricia pick, maybe it’s her secret for looking well rested while running a business, a family AND giving back at Dream Catchers? We can’t guarantee that, but we can tell you that this non-abrasive liquid wipes away spent surface cells, revealing a smoother, clearer, more refined complexion beneath and pores that are primed for maximum treatment and moisture benefits.

Nutriplenish Multi-Hair Use Oil

Hannah chose this as her final MUST have when cleaning out your drawers this spring. This oil has multiple uses, which makes it a clear winner. It is pure hydration that can be used on the scalp, as a leave in product, finishing product for shine and to fight frizz, overnight treatment, or even use for scalp massages !It is awesome!
