Considered sacred by the Inca Indians for its valuable life-supporting nutrients, quinoa has flourished in the Peruvian Andes for over 5,000 years. Known in Quechua, the language of the Incas, as chisiya mama or "mother grain," quinoa is very rich in protein—more than all other grains. Today, Aveda sustainably sources quinoa for the protein in our Damage RemedyTM restructuring hair care.
