A little while back, us redheads were polled by the How to be a Redhead team to see which beauty items were our favorites. The 2018 September H2BAR Box showcased some of the winners in a well-rounded pre-fall season box.
Not Your Mother’s (aka NYM’s) brand has always been a favorite of mine. Tip your head forward and spray the dry shampoo into your roots. Using your fingers, rub the product into your scalp. I love using this product after my hair is washed and styled (yes, clean!) to keep it extra shiny and avoid greasy roots.
2. Just for Redheads Ginger Auburn Eyebrow Pencil ($15)
I think one of the biggest makeup obstacles redheads face is finding the right eyebrow pencil shade. This pencil is the perfect auburn color for any redhead.
With added aloe, this hand cream is lightly scented with apple blossoms. Your hands will get conditioned immediately, as the lotion absorbs fast into the skin.
In my opinion, there is always a place for mini-hairsprays. If you are going out after work, plan on traveling or need to hold your look for pictures, it’s great to have one on hand. This Paul Mitchell mini is a perfect formula –– never too sticky or heavy.
5. LUE by Jean Seo Clear Spot Treatment ($15)
This is the only acne medicine I have used that actually targets the pimple or blemish, without any irritation. It works fast too.
6. Hyland’s PRID Drawing Salve ($10)
My mother used to have this salve years ago. If you have a suburn, an ingrown hair, wood sliver, rose thorn, or something else under the skin, just by putting a bit of this on it and covering it lightly will draw it out towards the skin so it can be removed in a short period of time. In addition, it also calms irritations, blisters, minor cuts and insect bites. A perfect natural healer for those of us with sensitive skin.
7. Pretty Woman NYC Nail Polish in ‘Catch Flights, Not Feelings’ ($8)
I have been a fan of Pretty Woman NYC ever since I got my first bottle in an H2BAR box a while back. Each time us redheads are introduced to a new bottle of nail polish, the shade is fun and unique. This shade is a perfect light blue to wear all year round.
8. L’ANZA Shampoo & Conditioner ($2)
This little gem is packed with conditioning and repairing agents to keep our natural or enhanced red locks soft, smooth and healthy. Plus, it smells amazing!
9. BONUS: Redhead Bobby Pins ($7), Redhead Hair Ties ($7) or Giella Cosmetics Highlighter ($30)
I was lucky to recieve the Giella Cosmetics Highlighter in my September H2BAR Box. Apply this highlighter on your upper cheekbones, cupid’s bow, under the brow bone and on your eyelids.
Rock It Like A Redhead!
