Celebrities' Favorite Drugstore Beauty Finds

Scalp Exfoliants

  • "Use ½ cup fine sugar + shampoo to exfoliate the scalp. This is very good for dry hair."
  • "Use fine salt + shampoo to exfoliate the scalp. This is very good for oily hair."

Reverie Shampoo

Reverie's shampoo for all hair types creates volume and adds shine. Plus, it smells amazing thanks to neroli, pink grapefruit, jasmine, sandalwood and bourbon vanilla essential oils.

Hair Mask

"Add honey + olive oil together to create a mask. If you have essential oils available, add those in. Rosemary + lavender + cedarwood are great for thinning hair. Add a dash of juniper to combat excess oil. Peppermint for strength and growth."

Note: "Masks should always be applied to wet hair to lock in the moisture (oils are not moisturizing but will help to seal in moisture just like face oils) and they need to be thoroughly washed out to avoid build up or damage when using hot tools."

Reverie Conditioner

This conditioner for all hair types won't weigh your locks down. It includes murumuru butter to restore luster and softness to your hair as well as amino acids to repair damaged strands, among other unique ingredients.

Scalp Treatment (Using Reverie Products)

"Add a fine grain sugar to Reverie Shampoo to create an exfoliating effect. Rinse and repeat with Reverie Shampoo sans sugar. Condition with Reverie Conditioner for one to two minutes while you wash your body. Apply one pipette of Cake Restorative Scalp Tonic to damp scalp. Style as usual."

Reverie Cake Restorative Scalp Tonic

This multi-talented scalp tonic promotes hair growth, balances the scalp's pH and hydrates. It's filled with essential oils, Swiss apple stem cells and more unique ingredients to accomplish all of this.

Hair Treatment (Using Reverie Products)

"As a pre-shampoo scalp/hair treatment one to two times a week: Apply Ever to thoroughly coat scalp and hair. Leave on for minimum of 20 minutes (bonus if you can apply a form of heat). To cleanse, apply shampoo to dry hair first and condition as normal."

Ever Recovery Hair Oil

The Ever Recovery Hair Oil adds shine while helping to repair split ends. This is all thanks to marula oil and essential omega fatty acids, among other key ingredients.

Overnight Mask (Using Reverie Products)

"Apply Ever to thoroughly coat scalp and hair. Leave in overnight. To cleanse, apply shampoo to dry hair first and condition as normal."
