Okayyy… Spring is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Here at EM, seasonal changes mean taking a look at our personal regimens, and checking ourselves to make sure we are caring for ourselves first and foremost, before sharing ANYTHING with our fans. Spring is a season of new growth, as well as fresh beginnings. Today’s feature is on hair. Our hair. Your hair. Everyone’s hair. Out with the dull, and in with the refreshed, energized new!
TIP #1: MOISTURIZE YOUR SCALP
It’s so important to care for your scalp, especially coming out of winter. Perhaps you’ve stayed in a more tropical region or don’t have the sensitive skin most of us seem to, if so, lucky you! For those of us with normal, not-super-hyped-on-the-winter-dryness, skin, well - this is a scalp-saver! Literally. Acure’s Argan & Coconut Shampoo Bar is incredibly moisturizing with its’ award-worthy ingredients spotlight and detoxifying goji berry fruit extract. This is a MUST for getting scalp back on the right track!
Another, and much newer product we fell in love with and recently decided to bring in is Even Keel's Shampoo Bar, packed with shine-inducing olive & avocado oils, deep cleansing Moroccan red clay and hints of lively lemongrass & Japanese cormint to bring hydration to your scalp as well.
TIP #2: BRING LIFE INTO YOUR HAIR
Also during the winter season our hair tends to become dull (unfortunately) and loses its radiance. We’ve picked up a few products to combat this, making them MUST-HAVES for pretty much everyone.
Our favorite is Acure’s Juice Cleanse Supergreens & Adaptogens Shampoo. This is an incredible antioxidant-rich shower staple for stressed, stripped hair. Adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms like ashwagandha, holy basil, reishi, and turmeric combine with heavenly supergreens spinach, kale and spirulina to brighten and re-energize your hair. We definitely recommend pairing it with its rightful Acure’s Juice Cleanse Supergreens & Adaptogens Conditioner.
Equally worth mentioning is Wash With Water’s Glossy Locks Shampoo - okay, ultra-shine properties here with yummy Mandarin & Jasmine notes to caress your good-as-new locks before you head out the door! We recommend using this shampoo daily for the best results and pair with the Shine On Conditioner.
TIP #3: DETANGLER: SHOW EXTRA CARE TO YOUR HAIR THIS SEASON
We want to show our hair a little extra love this season for getting us through the winters brutal storms. Wash With Water’s No Drama Detangler may be new to scene, but this definitely one worthy of attention. With its super lightweight, non-greasy creamy texture for better hair manageability, you will EASILY tame flyaways, frizz and nasty tangles. And the results? Super soft, nourished hair. This natural alternative to your current detangler that may be tucked away & forgotten, is formulated with a sweet base of vanilla, shaved sandalwood, and white musk to highlight its delicate scent. Also in the blend are ingredients we love like soft jasmine petals, peach, cassis and mandarin. We recommend for all skin types.
TIP #4: GIVE YOUR HAIR A BREAK ALTOGETHER
Experiencing super-dry, brittle, perhaps even frizzy hair? GIVE IT A BREAK. No, we’re not saying don’t shower. Instead, try Acure’s Dry Shampoo for all skin types, and let us know what you think. We recommend going a little extreme in the beginning, only washing your hair in the shower 1x a week to give it a breather, and using this one up to 3x (without rinsing).
