Ready or not, holiday beauty is starting to drop this week. While drafting your shopping list may be a ways off, we all know the best holidays gifts are usually the ones you buy yourself.

Now you can shop over 500 of The Detox Market’s best-selling eco-friendly, non-toxic and cruelty-free products, including those from best-selling brands such as RMS Beauty, Sahajan and Indie Lee on Indigo’s online e-store, with dedicated in-store shopping areas planned for the spring.

Goldwell’s new salon range will help you break up with your broken hair

For those with fragile hair that feels like it could break if you just think about a ponytail, this new professional at-home treatment range from Goldwell might help you finally provide your delicate strands with the TLC they deserve. With Canadian toque season on the horizon, the weightless 60Sec Treatment serum feels particularly life-saving since it promises to instantly smooth, strengthen and seal frazzled hair in a minute flat thanks to peptides and amino acids that work at the core of each strand to fortify it from the inside-out. Flyaways and split ends? We don’t know them.
