Hair-Raising Solutions

When salons temporarily closed their doors this spring, many St. Louisans were left asking, “What do I do about my hair?” While we can all rejoice that businesses have reopened, the experience has spotlighted some of the awesome at-home hair care products out there.

There’s no denying the importance of routine hair maintenance. Packed with amino acids, this mask hydrates and repairs damage. This pouch is guaranteed to include at least four applications and uses less plastic than similarly sized bottles.
That’s a big win-win.
