REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

Most of us forget that not using a face mask at home regularly shouldn’t even be an option. Love your skin and mark your calendar! Use this mask once a week to remove dead skin cells and black heads and tone your skin, leaving it looking healthy and glowing.

Nioxin Scalp Treatment

This is not your ordinary shampoo and conditioner, this is scalp therapy! Haven’t thought about that one? Well now is the time, because healthy hair starts at the scalp. Nioxin will take care of both. It gives you thicker, fuller hair, making it healthy and voluminous. Ask your hair stylist – they will probably tell you this is the best treat for you precious locks.

May Editor Picks - Hask

Most of us either forget, or just don’t know that our hair also needs a very special treatment once in a while. This little known hair mask will repair especially damaged hair, leaving it rejuvenated, silky, weightless, moisturized, feeling and looking healthy. A great pick for damaged or even already healthy hair. Find it on the bottom shelf of your local pharmacy; but don’t be put off by lack of branding. Try it once a week and see for yourself.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hair Spray

HL May Editor Picks Hair

HL May Editor Picks Hair

This one’s my pick of all picks of hairsprays. As it states on the can, this hairspray not only holds your style, it also defends against frizz. Personally, I can never say “no” to an anti-frizz, especially after blow-drying and styling my hair. John Frieda’s anti-frizz doesn’t weight my hair down like most hairsprays but keeps the volume while holding the style.



Silktáge Rejuvenating Styling Serum

May Editor Picks Silktage

May Editor Picks Silktage

If your hair is out of control and you’ve tried everything but it all just makes you more irritated, give Silktage a try! I tried this serum for my frizzy hair and it helped. You only need a couple of drops to make it smooth, straight and relaxed. It also helps smooth out split ends and get rid of that post blow dry frizz. A miracle for those who need straightening curly and unruly hair.

Avalon Organics Hair Products

May Editor Picks Avalon

May Editor Picks Avalon

Avalon hair products are gentle on your hair and scalp mainly because of their organic and pure ingredients. You probably didn’t know this but most of the regular store-brand shampoos and conditioners strip away the natural oils that your hair produces, adding only chemicals to make them look clean and healthy. Since Avalon uses only natural organic ingredients, it will cleanse you hair without adding all that unnecessary chemicals making it truly healthy.
