Happy Rose Day! As today is all about the brilliant benefits of this gorgeous flower, we thought that we would remind you of the benefits of rose water and why it is such an important ingredient in our Hydrate Me range for healthy tresses.
Back to basics: What is a rose?
Roses are beautiful flowers that have sharp stems, but incredibly smooth petals. They have a distinctive floral smell that leaves a fair few of us in awe, and this type of flower symbolises love. Hundreds of years ago, the rose was a sacred flower that ancient greek and ancient Egyptians identified with their relevant goddesses of love.
The cultivation of rose water
Did you know that the cultivation of rose water started thousands of years ago in ancient Persia? Health Line mentions that it was in an area in Persia now known as Iran and the concoctor of this wonderful elixir was called Avicenna—a Persian physician and alchemist whole lived during the 10th century. We must thank Avicenna for his brilliant rose water potion.
Rose's and curls: the benefits
But what are the benefits of using rose water in our hair regimen? There are just so many, believe it or not! That's why we had to ensure that the rose water we use in our Hydrate Me range was derived naturally from potent rose petals to give your curls the best from nature's garden.
