The #ProductEmpties We Loved to the Last Drop
From new finds to longtime favorites, these are beauty products that our editors use until the bitter end (of the tube)
For nearly a year, I stopped going to the hair salon. I let my color grow out and stopped blow-drying my strands, hoping the minimalist routine would chill out my scalp. I tried every dandruff shampoo that crossed my desk; nothing was cutting it.
Then, at the drugstore, I spotted this bad boy -- MG217 Psoriasis Shampoo, made specifically for psoriasis sufferers. With 3 percent coal tar, it's no joke, and I was hesitant to buy it. It's not the first coal tar shampoo I've tried, so I had little hope of it working.
In a matter of weeks, my psoriasis symptoms subsided. I was no longer clawing at my head or surreptitiously brushing flakes from my shoulders. Fast-forward a few months, and I'm still symptom-free. Yes, it makes your head smell like a Sharpie. And, yes, you'll need a good conditioner to keep your strands silky. But my scalp psoriasis is gone. I've been able to return to the hair-styling products I love (I've missed you, Oribe) and my blow-dryer. And, next month, I may even visit my colorist. --Jill Provost
