A NEW INTRODUCTION
Now let me fully introduce you to the wonderful versatile hair oil, its ingredients and some their magical benefits.
As many of my lovely customers and followers will know, prior to founding Bowe Organics I worked as a freelance hairdresser in London and have now set up a salon where I live now, in the North East. It was actually stumbling upon organic hair products which first ignited my passion for the power of botanicals. I found some hair dyes contain some of the most potent chemicals we can put on our hair and I was amazed at how effective the more plant-based dyes were.
My work as a hairdresser, looking after thousands of women’s hair, has also given me such a keen awareness of how much hair means to us. It’s intrinsically linked to our identity, our confidence and even how powerful we feel. I wanted to create a product which would help women give their hair the love and respect it deserves. I wanted to create something which would effectively hydrate and nourish hair but be simple and easy to use; something people could easily weave into their self-care routines.
My respect for natural and organic ingredients meant that there was no way my product was going to be anything other than organic and vegan! In the end I have spent nearly four years working on my Versatile Hair Oil, testing a lot of products until I found the perfect combination. In the meantime, I have launched the Bowe Organics brand and released my lash oil, lip butter, and brow oil. It has been a truly incredible journey taking my favourite formulations and transforming them into products loved by so many people! But all the while, I've been busy perfecting my hair oil, and I’m excited to share it with you. Here’s a little info about some of the ingredients
I’ve used Argan oil because it is just packed full of vitamin E and fatty acids which are perfect for hydrating and nourishing hair! The vitamin E helps smooth frayed and split ends and the fatty acids are perfect for adding moisture back into sad, dry hair. Argan oil is such a popular ingredient in hair care at the moment but be aware - many bigger brands plaster it all over the label but there’s barely any in the actual product!
Then I added safflower oil, a truly amazing ingredient, which has such a positive effect on hair health. It’s packed with ceramides and linoleic acid which work to nourish and improve hair texture.
I chose baobab oil which is packed with more essential fatty acids to nourish and moisturise the hair from the inside out. Baobab oil has a lightweight feel, so it won’t make your hair feel greasy and weigh it down. It also contains 6 times more vitamin C than an orange!
Vitamin C promotes hair elasticity and helps to strengthen the hair - who doesn’t want strong hair?!
There is also Jojoba oil, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E oil. I have spoken about these ingredients before and lets face it, this is an email and not many people will want to spend half their day reading it haha.
I have called it the Versatile Hair Oil because that’s exactly what it is. You can use it in so many different ways, all with one thing in common - they will help your hair look and feel amazing. You can apply a few drops to clean, wet hair after washing to hydrate, smooth and increase shine before drying. You can also apply to dry hair whenever you feel as though your hair could use a hydration boost or some extra nourishment. It’s also an excellent pre-shampoo treatment. Simply add 10-15 drops to your hair (I apply it in sections) then leave for as long as you like - even overnight. Then wash it out, ideally applying shampoo before the water to really cleanse the oil.
All the ingredients have been so carefully selected to make a real difference to your hair. You can even choose from a fragrance or fragrance-free version! The fragranced contains three essential oils which are very personal to me - frankincense, lavender and chamomile. They are what I use to relax, calm and ground me. I put a couple of drops in my palms, rub my hands together and cup them in front of my nose. I then inhale deeply through my nose, exhaling through my mouth, three times before applying the hair oil. I do this with my eyes closed and at the end, before applying it to my hair, I say one thing that I am grateful for. Just a little peaceful pause in our busy lives, I invite you to join me in this ritual.
It won’t be long before I start hearing feedback from customers who have tried my Versatile Hair Oil and I simply can’t wait! I hope you all love it as much as I do. I know it will boost how your hair looks and feels, giving you an extra reason to feel confident and powerful
