This Plastic-Free Brand Is Changing the Way You Cleanse Your Hair

By 2050, oceans will contain more plastic than fish. This prediction alone was so alarming to the creators of Hibar, that it inspired them to take action to help eliminate the single use of plastic in the bathroom. Thus, Hibar was born. This clever shampoo and conditioner line does it’s part in being eco-friendly by helping to get rid of plastic via offering recyclable and compostable exterior packaging. While using a bar for your hair may seem foreign to many, it’s actually quite simple to use as each bar is shaped like a teardrop with an angled tip to make application of the product easy while in the shower. Founder Nora Schaper explains the inspiration behind the shape of the bar, “We spent a lot of time getting the shape right. We wanted it to be iconic, unmistakable, beautiful. We also wanted it to feel nice in the hand - the curves feel luxurious. And the top is bevelled so it feels gentle on your hair and scalp.”

How This Overnight Mask Became My Daily Night Cream

How This Overnight Mask Became My Daily Night Cream

It’s cold. I know it’s the winter time but here in LA, it’s stinking cold for us. And to add to that, we’re now having to spark up those heaters in our house that are rather foreign to us and putting them on full blast which inevitably dries up our desert air even more. This equals zero moisture in the air unless you get a humidifier (can we say that I just added that to my amazon cart?) which has forced me to up my skincare game even more. I was in the market for a night cream as I felt like I needed some extra-ness during my beauty sleep as I strive for those deep 8 hours of slumber. Enter, the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask ($48) who came to my rescue.

How To Find Out If Your Face Has Dandruff

How To Find Out If Your Face Has Dandruff

Strictly speaking, dandruff occurs mostly on your scalp. Those who suffer from it will find that they are almost constantly shedding white flakes of skin, and the condition is often accompanied by itchiness. In some people, the flakes will only show up on the hair, but severe cases may result in a ‘snowfall’ on the shoulders and back. Regardless of anything else, dandruff is not a condition caused by poor hygiene, and perhaps half of the population suffers from it at any given time.
