I didn’t NEED to travel to Stockholm to fall in love with Swedish brand SACHAJUAN, but c’est la vie. Because although I recognized their products back in New York, it wasn’t until I arrived in Sweden — and after a week of using Head and Shoulders — that I was inspired to try it out. In Stockholm, SACHAJUAN is everywhere, and now I understand why. After examining (and smelling) every one of their bottles at Åhlens, I settled on their most basic Shampoo for Normal Hair. It smells and works amazing especially as a clarifying shampoo that won’t weigh your hair down. The line is based around “ocean silk technology,” which adds shine to your locks while keeping them bouncy by utilizing key proteins found in sea algae extract. My favorite summer find in Stockholm so far.
It’s that odd time of year where one day you can dart out of the apartment with only a light cardigan, but the next requires more strategic layering. This yo-yo weather routine is not only hard on early morning wardrobe planning, but also on our skin. For a girl who is borderline obsessed with never having dry skin, it was time to call in the big guns. Decleor Ylang Ylang Purifying Night Balm is my first mode of attack.
