Styling Tips

and random beauty gossip.


 |  Campbell Mckeogh



After a spring spent mostly indoors, we’re guessing more than a few of you are planning to spend as much time outside this summer as your schedule permits. (Socially distanced picnic, anyone?) Which is all well and good, until you realize all those hours soaking up the sun have left you with dull, dry hair that’s full of split ends. It’s one of those unfortunate summer side effects that feels inevitable—but it doesn’t have to be. Follow these five quick tips for keeping dry hair at bay all summer long.

1. Use a gentle shampoo.

Between swimming, exercising outdoors, and that icky-sticky feeling summer sun and humidity can leave you with, there’s a decent chance you’ll be washing your hair more than usual. To minimize wear and tear, reach for a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo that will cleanse without stripping your hair’s natural oils. All of our shampoos are sulfate-free, but if you’re looking for a place to start, we recommend Hydrating Shampoo. It works for all hair types and contains nourishing argan oil and moisturizing red algae, making dry hair a thing of the past.

2. Don’t forget sun care.

We all know that basking in the sun sans SPF is a huge no-no when it comes to your skin. But have you considered the effect all those rays might have on your hair? Our multitasking Protect & Prevent Spray is a lightweight hair protectant formulated to help prevent color fade and brassiness. It also contains—you guessed it—sunscreens to help absorb UV rays, and weightlessly increases softness and shine. Use it before you step outside and forget dry hair ever darkened your doorstep.

3. Commit to a weekly hair mask.

We’ve covered the reasons why absolutely everyone can benefit from a good hair mask. This is particularly true when summer rolls around and the battle against dry hair begins. Fortunately, we take hair hydration so seriously that we created not one but two moisturizing masks. Intense Hydrating Mask work on medium to thick, dry hair to dramatically improve hair’s texture, elasticity, shine, and manageability. Weightless Hydrating Mask has the same benefits, but in a lighter formula that won’t weigh fine hair down. Both are easy to use and don’t require heat to deliver results. Just apply throughout towel-dried hair (use a wide-tooth comb if needed to ensure even distribution). Leave on for 5–7 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

4. Make moisture part of your daily routine.

Treating dry hair isn’t a one-and-done type deal—it’s an ongoing process. Maintain the magic your mask has worked by incorporating moisturizing styling products into your everyday routineMoroccanoil Treatment is an ideal daily go-to, because you can use it on its own before air-drying or as a nourishing foundation for other styling products on days when you need to step up your game. Feeling a blowout? Reach for anti-frizz Hydrating Styling Creamto add soft hold + mega moisture to your look. (And don’t forget to protect your hair from heat damage with Perfect Defense!)

5. Minimize heat styling.

Flat irons, blow-dryers, and curling irons sure do work magic, but they also tend to compound the drying effects of summer. Whenever possible, skip the heat and let your hair dry on its own. Try air-drying with Moroccanoil Treatment (or Intense Curl Cream, for curly girls) to fight frizz and boost shine. To zhoosh up already dry hair, you can’t beat Dry Texture SprayMending Infusion is also a must-have for dry hair styling. In addition to sealing split ends, it combats other visual signs of damage and contains a blend of argan oil and baobab extracts to leave hair silky and touchable.  With the right tools in your arsenal and a little bit of experimentation, you’ll be on well on your way to finding an air-dried look you love.

The Black Leggings Of Skincare

 |  Campbell Mckeogh

I was like – nah, the little black dress is done.  

I think it’s more like black leggings!  

Jenni chimed in, “I hate wearing jeans and can’t wait to put leggings on…they are my failproof…they work with anything…fat day, skinny day, dressy, casual…”

What’s the point you ask?

Black leggings are versatile, they are easy to use, they go with everything and everyone loves them.  Just like Hale & Hush Skincare. I mean, honestly, there are only a few lines out there that I know that have the legit cult following that Hale & Hush enjoys.

Hale & Hush’s popularity lies in its ability to help the most sensitive and reactive skin types.

“…Campbell identified a pressing need for high-quality skincare products for extremely sensitive and health-challenged skin®. She became an expert in the subject….In 2015 Campbell founded Hale & Hush, the only professional skincare line to focus exclusively on sensitive skin. For occasionally to seriously sensitive skin, Hale & Hush has sensitive skin covered.”  

About Us on

Over the past year, as I’ve gotten to know Hale & Hush, either through online observation or through conversations with skincare pros at industry events, the feedback that I’ve gotten is that LITERALLY EVERYONE loves Hale & Hush!  I was so excited when I got to try the products so we could do the review of Hale and Hush skincare for this article.

A Closer Look At Ingredients For Our Review Of Hale and Hush

We examined the entire product line for our review of Hale & Hush skincare.  The products are so neutral that they can be used on clients who are sensitive.  Which is amazing. But the feedback that we’ve observed is that they are also incredibly therapeutic for any skin type after aggressive exfoliation.

The key to why they work so well isn’t due to what is in them, rather it’s what’s NOT in them!


The products are:

  • Sulfate Free100%100%
  • Gluten Free100%100%
  • Paraben Free100%100%
  • Artificial Fragrance-Free – Limited Scent100%100%

 Our Review Of Hale & Hush Showed Us Estheticians Love It!

In our review of Hale & Hush skincare, what we’ve learned from the estheticians that we’ve talked to is that they use Hale & Hush in conjunction with many other skincare brands and skincare devices.  The brand’s ability to help the most vulnerable skin, allows it to easily assimilate into almost any treatment. It’s also an ideal post exfoliation soother.

Here’s some of the feedback that we received.  You can easily see that it works beautifully with:

Skin Script


Osmosis Skincare

Lira Clinical

Elaine Sterling Skincare

Eminence Organic


Le Mieux

“I use it with Skin Script, they compliment each other perfectly, especially for calming after a “spicy” treatment! I also use it for my own rosacea and sensitive skin, H&H has helped reduce my inflammation and soothed my flare ups, I love that is gluten free, paraben free and fragrance free!” Lori Cadett Comen from LC Artistry  

“I’ve started using it with Face Reality products. In particular the Bio relief powder, which they can mix with their moisturizers or SPF to reduce redness from acne.”  Jessica White Slorah

“I use H&H SPF with Elaine Sterling Skincare and Skin Script. My clients love it! It not only protects their skin from UV but it calms and doesn’t irritate their fresh faces. Living in St Petersburg, FL (aka Sunshine City) we need all the protection we can get.” Tif Blue from Beauty By Blue Esthetics!

“We use it alongside Eminence. I love Hale & Hush because it’s versatile there’s so many ways you can use it. We developed our signature brow service around it and incorporate it into our aftercare post waxing.”  Shelly Singleton from The Perfect Peach Body Waxing Studio

“I use Skin Script, PCA along with Hale & Hush. I will use the hydrate gel mask after an enzyme peel or chemical peel. The hydrate mask will take the redness(inflammation) down. I have rosacea clients that I’ll do the PCA sensi peel then the rest of treatment H&H products. Love how they compliment other product lines!”  Monica Pittman Chandler from EPI Skin Spa, Snellville, GA

“…I have successfully used it on virtually every client, with every product line I’ve used, from DermaMed Solutions, to Le Mieux, Skin Script, FHF, and soon, with my very own skincare collection. It’s not just for my sensitive skin and oncology patients, but for every skin condition I have encountered in my 9 years of business as esthetician.” Liliana Aranda LE Cmld from Faces by Liliana, Oakland, CA

“I only currently use Hale and Hush in back bar. The hush hydrate mask and bio relief powder take all redness down. It works well with Skin Script rx and Osmosis. No other product like this is on the market.”  Amy Walsh, Lead Esthetician at Earthbody day spa, San Francisco, CA


Hale & Hush is a small line, with only 14 products.  You can also easily combine it with other products in any facial protocol. The line can be used on its own to perform Microdermabrasion and Microneedling.  It works well with highly advanced treatments such as the ThermoClear machine.

Olga, CEO of Thermoclear

ThermoClear treats skin  imperfections and can be used even on clients with sensitive or mature skin. I know that Hale and Hush focuses on sensitive skin so it’s great to use with our device.”
