Winter is a time for rest and replenishment. Things slow down, temperatures drop, and the days get shorter, naturally easing us into a period of rest and restoration. And, now with the global pandemic, it’s more important than ever (and in some cases, essential) to find ways to prioritize self care while staying socially distanced.

As the founders of our own hair care brand, it’s no surprise that we often turn to nurturing beauty products when the going gets tough. Whether it be from home or safely in the salon, here are some of our favorite go-tos for when you’re in need of some spa-like TLC.

Step 1: Reset, Starting with your Skin

T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ 

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and essential to overall health. This pro-quality AHA/BHA facial resurfaces skins to improve overall clarity, texture, and radiance.

HOW WE USE: Once a week, treat yourself to a 20-minute Babyfacial to exfoliate away dead cells and pore-clogging residue. 

Step 2: Wrap Up and Relax

ikoo Thermal Treatment Wrap

Hair loves a bit of heat — it has a way of relaxing tensed muscles in the scalp and along with strands, revealing a polished and healthy shine. Our 4 Thermal Treatment Wraps each use a unique combination of ingredients to repair and nourish strands using a gentle and natural heat source — your scalp!

HOW WE USE: After shampooing & conditioning, slip the wrap over your hair and secure with the sticker. Sit back and relax for 15-25 minutes, massaging in as needed. Once complete, cleanse hair and style as usual. Voila! 

Step 3: Zen Out

Calm App

From meditations to relaxing music, this app puts stress relief in the palm of your hand. Plus, they offer even more free resources and information on their website!

HOW WE USE:

While your Babyfacial and Thermal Hair Mask process, close your eyes and press play on the Calm app’s 9-minute Basics of Mindfulness meditation as part of their free 7 Days of Calm course. Tip: Make sure you set a timer in case you fall asleep! (Yeah, it’s that good.)
