You all know the struggles I’ve had with my hair and about three months ago and a course of Viviscal later, it started to show a bit of promise. My hair has always been thick, shiny and lustrous. It’s always been my crowning glory and I took for granted the compliments that people gave me on my super thick hair. That is, until it all snapped off after a horrific bleaching accident. Nutshell version: Too much bleach = unwanted haircut.
I went from having hair that could cover my nips mermaid style, to having hair that barely covered my earlobes. Bummer. It’s surprising how much it actually affected me, your hair is often the first thing people notice, and it can be an armour. But when you’re faced with an unintentional hair disaster, it knocks your confidence.
So, on my quest to grow back my thick, once beautiful hair, I tried most things, including the crazy remedies (castor oil and coffee grounds anyone? Yum). It seemed that my hair had gone into hibernation and then hit the snooze button. It literally refused to grow. I measured my root regrowth at the starting point up to this very morning and in just over 21 months, it’s grown almost an inch. ONE. INCH.
I did however have a recent breakthrough. I was sent a bottle of JKB Argent Millionaire Hair Mist which promised to be “The ultimate pick-me-up for dull, tired and lacklustre hair, it nourishes and transforms your locks from the inside out for incredible light reflecting, dazzling shine!”
Everything about Millionaire Hair mist oozes quality. From the sleek and simple packaging to the decadent, weighty glass bottle that was made to be displayed. First of all, the product is versatile, it can be used in place of dry shampoo, as a styling aid, as a blow-dry protectant or as a detangler.
Millionaire works by penetrating the hair cuticle locking in moisture and smoothing the surface. Unlike other hair oils that simply coat the hair, this oil works from the roots within solving your hair problems and preventing the singe you can get from using regular hair oil. Simples.
“I tried everything other than oil to nourish my hair. It was only when my mum said in her wise way “have you ever wondered why women in the Punjab have long healthy thick hair?” The penny dropped. Its all in the oil, but I didn’t want hair that looked greasy. No way. And that’s when I began developing Millionaire Hair Mist.” Jas Braich, Founder of JKB Argent
Because Millionaire is packed with organic ingredients, it has a shelf life of 8 months but trust me, you’ll develop and addiction and it’ll be long gone before the use by date. The smell alone makes it worth its £35 price tag. Founder Jas produces blends for herself, her family and friends and with a career honed in the retail pharmacy business, Jas understands what works effectively and the best way to deliver that without the use of harsh chemicals and parabens.
One of the best things I discovered whilst using Millionaire, is that my hair became more dense and thick pretty quickly. When I looked into why this could be, it turns out that the ingredients in Millionaire are proven to slow down hair loss resulting in thicker hair. Winning. I used it after every wash – Jas advises that whilst occasional use is good, Millionaire is like skincare and it’s benefits are longer lasting and more visible with routine use. With regular use, borderlining on addiction, my bottle lasted around 3 months, pretty damn good compared to high street products in the same genre.
There’s a reason Millionaire is garnering so much attention right now, with Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia naming it as one of their top picks, it’s definitely a must have item in my bathroom.
