There was no doubt that certain nations have outstanding hair. Of course it is subjective but there is little doubt that Hawaiian, Japanese, and Indian women are renowned for their glossy locks. Partly down to genetics, but it also has something to do with what you feed your body and hair. If we could tap into their secrets then perhaps we would have gorgeous hair.
Most of us will never live in Hawaii but we know some of their ingredients are captured in shampoos. It was Paul Mitchell, possibly the first celebrity hairdresser, who reportedly discovered the Hawaiian secret. He had seen local women washing their hair with a certain flower bulb and then discovered the actual ingredient was a ginger plant. Later he harnessed the ingredient and included in his best selling shampoo range.
The Japanese may well attribute their healthy hair to their high fish intake but it is also known that they traditionally washed their hair with seaweed. Could this be what we should try?
What about Indian women? They traditionally oil their hair with a mustard oil. It may not smell the best but if it works at keeping the frizz and grey hairs at bay it’s certainly worth a try. That or another oil packed with luscious hair feeding ingredients like SAAF.
What ever you try it definitely seems worth trying a product which contains nutritional value, rather than one which was simply clean your hair. I may be biased but the shampoo I always go back to is FAST -yes it contains a lot of proteins and amino‘s, but it also leaves my scalp squeaky clean and free from for a build up. Works great for me!
