I am lucky enough to have swam in the Mediterranean sea. In fact, if I was pressured to choose my favorite spot in the entire world, I would have to choose the small Greek island of Rodos (Rhodes to us English speakers). I spent 12 glorious days there, and wasn’t that excited about catching that jetliner back home. So to say that I am constantly inspired by the beauty of the Mediterranean would be an understatement. Here is a roundup of a few inspirational products to enjoy.
Ouidad Luxe Mediterranean Bay Leaf Hair and Scalp Treatment features rare Bay Leaf Oil imported from Lebanon and commonly used throughout Europe and the Middle East for its restorative qualities. Blended with a fine grained natural exfoliant in a base of amino acids with moisturizing and restructuring proteins, this luscious experience will exfoliate dry scalp, inspire healthy growth and reinvigorate hair. Available at Ouidad Flagship Salons. The treatment starts from $175 (depending on length of hair). Visit Ouidad.com.
