For the past few months I’ve been using a hair oil that’s given my locks a new lease of life. It’s called Hair Gold and it’s by Agese Oils. The name behind it is Emma Agese who has also formulated an oil to combat skin concerns after experiencing such problems as acne.
Hair Gold is a treatment (ideal for chemically treated hair) to stimulate hair follicles and prevent hair loss and greying. It’s a blend of rosemary and vitamin E oil and it also contains Brahmi and Amla oil. I recognise the ingredient of Amla as I’ve used it in its purest form for my hair to give it shine and it has a very distinctive smell which I recognised in this concoction. You’ll find bottles of Amla oil in indian food shops, stacked alongside coconut and almond, both also superb for hair and skin.
Upon closer inspection I noticed the complete set of ingredients for Hair Gold are Almond oil, Organic Virgin Coconut oil, Natural Vitamin E oil, Amla extract, Brahmi extract, Ylang Ylang essential oil, Peppermint essential oil, Tea Tree essential oil and Rosemary oil.
I’ve been rubbing the oil into my scalp and the rest of my hair usually the night before washing for maximum effect though a few hours before is sufficient. For a mixture of so many oils, it doesn’t have a greasy residue and the oils almost absorb into the hair. After washing and blow-drying, my hair feels much nicer to touch, healthier to look at and overall, has a lovely shine. I dare not miss it out of my hair care routine now because I value the end results so much.
I’ve not noticed a difference with hair loss, certainly not in the same way as I have with pure castor oil, which I still believe is the most effective natural oil treatment for hair loss and growth issues but nonetheless, Hair Gold has impressed me enough to want to purchase it.
The 50ml bottle which costs £25, is housed inside a bamboo container to preserve the oil and prolong the shelf life of these delicate oils. For more information on Hair Gold and the other products Agese Oils creates, visit www.ageseoils.com.
