I’m becoming more than a little obsessed with other people’s (read: women’s) glossy, shiny, frizz-free hair. I think my obsession is getting a little out of hand. I find myself staring and admiring for far longer than is considered acceptable in polite society.
The reason for my fascination? My hair has, of late, metamorphosised into a texture that bears no resemblance to the kind of hair I hanker after – glossy, shiny, frizz-free…. you get the picture.
So on a quest to find some miracle product or treatment that will transform my locks from lacking to luscious, I am trying out just about everything that comes my way, be it modern and scientifically cutting edge, or an old fashioned home remedy – I’m not proud or snobbish about it, as long as it works, I’ll try it. And so is born a new series of hair stories. ( You can’t even being to imagine the reserve I’ve had to muster not to employ a hole host of corny puns here!)
First off is a hair oil called Naura. Now before you throw your hands up in horror at the thought of putting a mini oil slick over your hair, take into consideration my cultural heritage. Many Indians grow up with oil in their hair 24/7, only washing it out to re-apply again immediately. I’m not seriously suggesting doing the same – that’s a cultural thing in India where it is socially acceptable to go out with oil in your scalp and hair. But seriously, oily hair for just a couple of hours (or overnight if possible) seems a small price to pay for the luscious locks (most) Indian are famous for (sadly not me….yet).
Naura claims to “return lost moisture” to the hair, promote hair growth and is formulated for normal to dry hair – so that works for me. It says is it 100% natural and organic and is a mix of herbal ingredients and oils that “activate natural sheen and improve hair health”. Ingredients include almond oil, black seed oil, (not sure which black seed) and date extracts.
I have to say, having used it a few times, it has made my hair softer and shinier. I still have some frizz after blow drying, but I was pleased that it washed out easily, and it smelt rather nice too.
I’ll definitely be using this again, and at only £10 for 200ml, it’s good value. Call +44 7951 669042 for more details or to order.
