Saudi Arabia’s Secret Beauty Bits #7 (HENNA)

Beauty

Hair thinning has been my biggest problem since arriving in Saudi Arabia and it has only gotten worse. Everyone says it’s the water (too harsh) and I need to avoid it, but in the desert how long could you possibly go without washing you hair?

ATTARAH: TRADITIONAL BEAUTY SHOP

Beauty
When you first take a glimpse into an ATTARAH you would easily mistaken it for a witchcraft shop. With products stacked floor to ceiling leaving little room to wander around you could only imagine what this place has in store. The questionable dried herbs, grounded powders and mixed oils could have you running for the door.  But trust me it is definitely worth the time and the browse. Spending almost an hour on my first visit; looking at all the products and asking questions I have to say this is definitely a must-see/do for any beauty addict.

KOHL: TEMPTING EYES

Beauty
So here goes my third pick for Saudi Arabian Beauty Bits (Pick1&Pick2), KOHL. What are more sexy then sultry eyes? I must say that even thou most women in Saudi Arabia have only their eyes visible, they have mastered the seduction through eyes. Literally these women have it going on! I know you can find hundreds of eyeliners and shadows on the market that claim to give the blackest eyes BUT I think Saudi has hit the motherboard when it comes to eyeliner.

JADAYEL HAIR GROWTH OIL

Saudi Beauty
I figured considering I am a closet beauty junkie that I would share a few beauty bits here on the blog. Since living here, one of my favourite things to do is try out regional beauty practices. There is no doubt that Saudi women like to care for themselves, and that being said the beauty business here is massive. But alongside all the popular commercial beauty brands are regional home goodies. Things that have been passed down from generation to generation and work wonders.
