DIVI Dry Shampoo

Sometimes, you hair just needs a quick pick-me-up rather than a full wash. Dry shampoos serve this purpose well, but many have heavy, scalp-disrupting buildups or contain harmful ingredients such as benzene, talc, butane, and propane.

Divi’s Dry Shampoo refreshes hair between washes and is free of harmful ingredients commonly found in other dry shampoos. Divi was born from founder Dani Austin’s personal journey through hair loss. Today, the premium line of scalp and hair health products empowers people to achieve their hair goals with confidence!

  • Absorbs oil & balances the scalp
  • Extends time between washes
  • Enhances volume at the root
  • Made for all hair: Fine, thick, straight, wavy, and curly hair
  • Can use any time: Between-wash or post-workout refresh

Native Hydrate by NativePath

Every “expert” tells you to drink 8 glasses of water a day.. But did you know that electrolytes are an extremely important part of the hydration equation?

Unfortunately, some electrolyte drinks taste terrible (like salt) which make them hard to drink on a regular basis. This next set of products, however, tastes very good!

The new Native Hydrate by NativePath is a zero-sugar electrolyte and Amino Acid (BCAA) drink mix that’s a blend of 14 vitamins and minerals and 2,000 mg of all 9 essential amino acids, all conveniently packed into one easy-to-use scoop. This powerful combination replenishes your body’s electrolytes, supports muscle recovery, boosts energy levels, and enhances overall hydration. Just add water and enjoy the great-tasting benefits anytime, anywhere. Available flavors, all sugar-free, are tangerine, mixed berry and peach mango.

By supplementing with electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and magnesium, you’re effectively restoring hydration, energy, and muscle, heart, and digestive health. Amino Acid (BCAA) boasts a wide range of benefits for muscles—from promoting muscle growth to enhancing muscle recovery after physical activity. This is why the brand included a 2:1:1 blend of Amino Acids (BCAA) — L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine—to give your muscles the nutrients they need to stay strong and healthy.

The brand exclusively obtains its salt from Pakistan’s Himalayan region. This deliberate choice eliminates any potential worries about microplastic contamination typically associated with sea salt (a concern prevalent among other electrolyte mixes.

A jar with 30 servings and funnel is $50, and single-serving packs will be available later this summer, ready for you to try and enjoy.
