You’d treat your complexion to a deep cleaning from a specialist, so why not deep clean your scalp, which is after all, just an extension of the skin on your face? If you want to experience the benefits of such a service, check out the new Pramāsana™ Scalp Treatment, available at Aveda salons and spas. In the 30-to 50-minute stimulating service, your scalp will be thoroughly cleansed, and balanced—for beautiful hair.


Here’s how it works. After a shampoo from our high-performance back bar at the salon, an Aveda Artist applies the Pramāsana™ Nourishing Scalp Masque to your scalp and meticulously massages in through the ends of your hair.


A variety of points are kneaded and rubbed using different techniques to help increase microcirculation and ease stress (believe it or not, you hold a lot of tension in your scalp). “Scalp work always feels great, since there are so many nerve endings in your scalp,” explains Marc Zollicoffer, Director of Professional Spa Education.


As for the masque itself, it’s a 98% naturally derived formula, with seaweed extract, which helps control and balance sebum levels on the scalp; lactobacillus, a patented ferment that helps preserve the scalp’s natural protective barrier, and tamanu oil, a known anti-oxidant that helps defend the scalp from pollution and other free radicals. The aroma? It’s a clean, fresh, Pure-Fume™ aroma featuring grapefruit, neroli, and cypress.


As for the results, the treatment simultaneously purifies and nourishes the scalp, helping to optimize the environment for your hair. Plus, it just feels great.


Bonus: After you’ve had the masque applied—which can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or an add on to another service—you’ll find your scalp is left feeling refreshed and cooled, and your hair is soft and shiny. Best of all, it poses no threat to your color.
