Fariha Sabir tries Vatika’s natural hair care range…
We all moan about Winter for so many different reasons, whether it’s the short and dark days or dreary and chilly weather. But my biggest seasonal annoyance is the unwanted dank and limp hairdo I end up sporting for the coldest months of the year, due to the harsh conditions. Age old tips from our mothers and foremothers of yesteryears always rave about the riches and goodness of natural ingredients for the hair. Cue Vatika Hair Care, pioneers in natural products for your locks.
Renowned purveyors of natural hair care, Vatika’s range features a literally fruitful feast of pure elixirs, including almond, olive, coconut, egg and honey, lemon and cactus. It may sound like your grandmother went on a rampage with her sworn-by ingredients in her village kitchen. But actually, that is the beauty of these products – each featured natural element is known to have beneficial factors to enrich your hair, in accordance to its condition, whether your hair is dry, frizzy, limp, damaged or you create a snowfall around your shoulders (despite it being festive season). Each magical range will sort out your specific hair problem.
I have heard so much about the miraculous healing powers of black seed, which dates back to the times Ancient Egypt and is said to ‘cure everything but death itself’. Wow, that’s a lot to live up to! So I went about trying their whole black seed hair care range, including a regime of shampoo, conditioner, oil and an occasional mask, made from the finest Turkish black seed. Aiming for complete everyday care for your mop, the range provides vital nutrients and nourishment for your hair.
A few weeks and many washes later, amazingly, my hair is feeling thicker, stronger and shinier than ever before, leaving me with lustrous, awe-inspiring tresses. Turns out I should have listened to my mum after all.
