No Frizz Fri-yay
Surely most women would agree that hair washing is more of an event than an activity. The lengths we go to figure out the best time to wash our hair can almost be equal to a mathematical equation. Typically, Thursday night is the night for weekend hair, making it the ultimate playground for ‘No Frizz Fri-yay’. Elevate your hair care routine with Arbonne‘s three-part TrueSmooth system, all of which are plant-based, which includes the TrueSmooth Rich Lather Shampoo, TrueSmooth Hydrating Conditioner, and TrueSmooth Apple Vinegar Hair Rinse.
Start with the proper prep to help you get the sleek, soft, shiny-looking strands you seek with the pre-wash hair and scalp treatment spray that features Apple Vinegar and a blend of natural botanicals to help purify your hair and bring its shine back to life. This miraculous vegan mist is ideal for removing excess styling product build-up before you shampoo. Then, use the rich lathering, fast-foaming shampoo, which features moisture-nourishing Provitamin B5 and a bevy of botanically based ingredients and paves the way for smooth, lustrous locks. Seal the ultimate hair-smoothing deal with this shine- and softness-enhancing conditioner that works to minimise hair breakage, nourish strands with moisture from root to tip, eliminate tangles and help reduce heat-induced damage.
Age is Just a Number
SRW Laboratories, the company that brought us the Cellular System Range, a range of supplements that support healthy aging at a cellular level, brings us another innovative product, which is a New Zealand first.
The DNAage is an at-home epigenetic, saliva-based DNA test kit, which is conveniently boxed up, delivered to your door, so it can be done in the comfort of your own home. This kit allows customers to see how quickly their cells are aging based on your DNA methylation. Recent research has shown that factors such as sleep, pollution, alcohol consumption, stress, exercise, obesity, and diet can speed up the process of biological aging. If your biological age is older than the predicted age, this suggests you are aging faster than the general population, and vice versa. Getting a hold of this information could assist you in safeguarding your future as studies suggest that an accelerated biological age may mean you experience some of the health conditions associated with advancing age earlier. Discover your biological age with DNAage and use this information to your advantage and have it help you make lifestyle changes to influence your biological age and help increase your chances of a long healthy life.

Have you lost the brightness and sparkle in your smile lately? Teeth discolouration… well, this happens to the best of us, if not all of us. Our teeth can look more yellow or darken especially as you age. While this occurrence is inevitable, it doesn’t mean there’s no way to slow down the process. There is, and that’s why teeth whitening products and treatments continue to grow in popularity over the years.
Searching for a safer, yet effective naturally derived toothpaste that whitens teeth? Ecostore‘s new Whitening Toothpaste with fluoride fights cavities, strengthens enamel, protects gums, and helps to whiten teeth naturally with baking soda. For the curious, baking soda helps to neutralise acids and it gently whitens teeth in the process.
With natural essential oils to create a strong, fresh minty flavour, this plant and mineral-based toothpaste contains antibacterial native Kanuka oil, with magnolia bark extract to support overall oral health. It is vegan-friendly and free from SLS, triclosan, and parabens, so as far as toothpaste goes, this toothpaste is as clean as it can get.
RRP $5.99. Available at supermarkets and ecostore.com
