May is the month when the ground can no longer contain the growth beneath the surface. Everywhere you look there is something new and bright bursting onto the scene.
Here on the HH team, the newness of this month is spilling over into fresh Latin food, botany pursuits and birthday celebrations. Hair is taking over our self-care rituals as we nourish our locks with masks and oils and embrace the season.
