Hibiscus, the Goddess Flower

Hibiscus is a colourful flowering plant, native to India, that has been used for centuries for many purposes, including its medicinal properties or as an offering to the Hindu goddess Kali.

Growing up, our mom’s hair secret was hibiscus oil. She would dry the flower, powder it and mix it with coconut oil. She would tell us in Bengal, women’s hair would touch the earth, 6ft long, as Red Hibiscus is known in India to promote hair growth.

Hibiscus flowers are rich in amino acids, which help with keratin production and improve hair strength, as well as AHA and antioxidants, which contribute to adding moisture and shine to your strands, trapping moisture in the hair shaft and keeping hair healthy and conditioned.

Sharing India’s powerful natural ingredients was at the basis of Fable & Mane, so choosing Red Hibiscus was key when formulating our latest innovation, the HoliRoots Hydrating Hibiscus Hair Oil Mist. We wanted to incorporate its many benefits into our potent lightweight elixir, along with Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry, nature’s miracle source of Vitamin C for healthy hair. This cloud-like mist hydrates and brings shine to your strands without weighing them down. Shake it and mist on dry hair whenever you need a hydration boost. Hair feels soft to touch and smells divine. Say hello to hair nirvana!
