Extreme Therapy for Hair

Donna Harris and Chris Sicurella’s natural hair, body and laundry products were inspired by Sicurella’s Sicilian heritage: Olive oil is in most of their merchandise, including their latherless, all-natural soap nut shampoos ($19.95). The packaging is recyclable and locally made, and they offer a 20 percent discount if you bring your bottle in for a refill. A loyalty program rewards regulars with extra discounts.

Holistic Earth Remedies
Moisturize your hair and more with Maggie Zombro’s multipurpose oils. Her 100 percent pure, unrefined, cold-pressed argan oil ($30) nourishes parched locks, scalp and skin and has anti-aging properties. A spritz of Liquid Gold’s 13-oil blend ($15) soothes dry, itchy scalp and strengthens hair without greasy buildup. 602-243-3289,

Beard Essentials
Stay-at-home dad Steve Patsy had a beard long before Duck Dynasty and the Arizona Wilderness fellas made them de rigueur. Patsy’s organic, vegan, non-GMO, hand-poured beard oil ($24) is a throwback to old-school masculine hygiene, when most men had beards and took pride in their upkeep. A mix of sandalwood, citrus, cedar and other oils leaves facial hair aromatic and silky instead of musty and bristly. Beard-lovin’ ladies, rejoice!
