Odele: Clean, affordable hair care that feels bougie as hell
By Lauria Locsmondy
Say hello to my new favorite masstige hair care, Odele Beauty. Women-owned and operated in Minneapolis, Odele developed from its founders’ desire to streamline product overload with a premium brand that’s affordable, but also safe, for everyone in the household.
The line steers clear of “SLS or SLES sulfates, formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, synthetic fragrances or any of the 1,300+ cosmetic ingredients banned by the European Union.” In fact, Odele uses botanical ingredients to create very light fragrances, which make its goops smell delightfully luxurious — and way more expensive than its drugstore price point.
Meet Linda Wattier, founder of How She Thrives
Hi, I’m Linda. Even though I still identify as a Midster, now that I’m 64, I also enjoy being a Perennial, part of a group of people defined by how they work, learn, and live instead of when they were born. We are ever-blooming, curious people of all ages who know what’s happening in the world, stay current with technology, and have friends of all ages.
As a bold wellbeing coach and founder of How She Thrives, I help women over 40 embrace wholehearted living for a more authentic, creative, and fulfilling experience of midlife and beyond.
