There is a plethora of Japanese haircare that will change the way you start your morning. PLUS after curling up for the last two years on the sofa, when caring for our hair was not obligatory due to #WFH – it’s probably about time we take a little look at other ways to look after our lovely locks and experiment and offer alternatives to the BUSY lives we now have again.

Camellia oil is often used in Japanese shampoos and conditioners, and is like the wave of ARGAN OIL that took over a few years back. 

Camellia oil can be used in lots of different ways – but pure camellia oil can be applied directly to wet hair to seal the natural moisture and keep the hair hydrated. It works to prevent split ends, while repairing the hair, and you will notice that it’s a lot easier to untangle after applying.  How to  PLAY with Camellia oil:

  • Towel dry hair after washing.
  • Put a few drops of Camellia oil into your palms and spread well.
  • Starting from the top, apply into the hair and scalp using fingertips.

If you NEED that proper intense haircare, try:

  • Applying a few drops into hair before washing hair.
  • Cover with a shower cap, and wrap with towel for 30 minutes
  • Shampoo and rinse as usual.

~ AND it also acts as a moisturiser and conditioner too. ~ 

If you’re excited by the sounds of this, try out Seaweed Hair Cleanser too – it’s UNREAL.

Here’s how:

  • Mix 1/2 tsp of seaweed powder with 3 Tbsp of hot water.
  • Let the mixture cool down.
  • Apply into hair and onto the scalp.
  • Rinse well.
  • Towel dry hair.
