I’m wiggly with excitement to say that we might-maybe hopefully-possibly be en route to winning yet another award… We’re not quite there yet, but I’ve been contacted by the 2021 Natural Health Beauty Awards, to say that ‘after rigorous testing’ the Tea & Rice Bran Curl Butter has been shortlisted for the ‘Best Curly Hair Product’. The winner is to be announced in August.
I thought I’d tell you a little bit about how I made it and what it is…
When I was a teenager and took home what felt like the entire contents of Boots’ make up and hair product aisle on a weekly basis, there was a deep conditioner for hair which stood out as being rather brilliant. I can’t remember the brand or name of it anymore, but I remember it was made with rice bran, and for some reason, this ingredient stuck in my mind long after I finished the tub.
Somehow, rice bran seemed like something which could really ‘fortify’ hair (maybe I’d been reading the backs of cereal packets at the time – I never could eat breakfast without reading something!) and to this day I seem to associate rice bran with fortification….
