hang on to summer with evo's salty dog cocktail beach spray

The kids are back in school and the sweltering summer heat is sizzling out. And while fall may be on the horizon, we’re not sure that we want summer to end (yet). There’s still plenty of time to soak up the sun, and whether you do so at a last minute trip to the beach or in your backyard, nothing feels quite as lovely as loose, windblown locks. That’s where evo’s Salty Dog Cocktail Beach Spray comes in.

Comprised of safe ingredients including Magnesium Sulphate (giving your waves that beachy crunch), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (for the tiniest bit of shine) and a handful of other truthful ingredients, the summer spray from our favorite Aussie brand is designed to give your hair what evo calls, “fresh from the beach malleability without having to deal with hostile crowds or riot police.”

And the best part? It’s a lazy girl’s best friend. All you have to do is apply a bit to damp hair, and boom! We can hang on to summer for a little bit longer.

here comes the sun

Finally, spring is here! Not only do we see it in Atlanta’s fine patio sitting, bicycle riding, beltline loving way, but in our hair and skin. Why? Spring brings along a big change in moisture balance. You know, the reason that city 800 miles from you makes your hair look better. Unlike the urge to sprint up the street for a King of Pops pop though, keeping your hair and skin healthy during the winter/spring transition is totally manageable.

Our friends over at EVO even have some tips and products. First off, they recommend their Happy Campers Hard-Working Moisturizer, a lightweight, leave-in moisturizer. The important thing here is the added sun protection that will keep your locks healthy during those beltline walks. Day of Grace Leave In Conditioner is the next smart move because (as EVO claims) it provides “100% more movement then a recently botoxed forehead”. Using a dab before styling will keep your hair in balance (and bounce). And lastly, EVO recommends Love Touch Shine Spray, their solution to dry, dull hair. As a weightless finishing spray, it magically adds both hold and shine. Thanks EVO!

We also recommend their Water Killer Dry Shampoo that we just got in to ease your “I wash my hair too much” woes. Skin takes a similar beating as we do the constant shuffle between outdoor warmth and humidity to indoor heat and dryness. To combat this “extreme combination” skin condition, Amy recommends 4 weeks of Dr. HauschkaRhythmic Night Conditioner ampoules as well as Dr. Hauschka’s Toned Day Cream as a perfect spring product. It moisturizes and protects all skin types with its unique blend of quince seed extract, beeswax, and rose petal wax. Have a balanced spring, friends (and don’t forget that sunscreen either).

winter weather getting your hair down?

Between the chilly air and excessive blow drying hair can start to fall into the brittle, heat-damaged category. Don't fear though friends. EVO, our favorite Aussi hair team, has it covered. They have created a product that they refer to as a solution when it comes to the day “you've just washed your hair and you're dreading the next three days of baby-haired-mopville.” Say goodbye to “mopville”… Evo’s Haze Styling Powder is here.

New York Magazine is also obsessed calling the powder a “palm sized antidote” for limp locks aka the flop and boosts volume at the roots without making hair stiff. It’s also unscented, lightweight, and super fine. But what really made our hearts fall is the fact that Haze has an oil-absorbing effect which allows it to (drum roll please) double as a dry shampoo. This means an extra day or two between washes, which we know will lift our hairs spirits in no time.

One thing to remember with Haze is that a little goes a long way. It comes in a dream bottle to tag along with you no matter where the season takes you and the littlest bit results in body, texture, and a sweet matte finish. We’re certainly in love. Stocking stuffer anyone?
