The StyleX (New York) by Jacqueline Podewils
Will you Moringa me? The magic behind the plea, the oil behind the magic, the seed behind the oil - all comes down to the harvesting and vision of popular New York hair stylist and the not-so-recent coming to existence of a product known as Moringa Oil.
Hiding away in New Jersey for the most part, it’s neither “New” accredited for her powers as product developer and hair stylist Kosia Asiamah originally hails from Ghana.
Creating the line Kosia Naturals, over the last few years the concocting of this potion featuring Moringa Oil, like a wonder drug for your hair, skin and body has been in the works and is now not only on the market but has hit mecca – the pages of Vogue.
Apearing in this month’s issue of Vogue Magazine, it’s actually her second time around, as this acclaim came first in August, 2011 in which an article titled “Beauty in the Ear” was written regarding the 100% Moringa Oil assisting in rejuvenating ear lobes, as clip-on earrings have not been a friend to many!
Bringing life back in, the produced oil straight from the Moringa trees on her ten-acre Moringa grove property in Africa is available in everything from tea to creams to oils to shampoo and conditioner.
Tested and true, it’s treasured by those proud to call Kosia their own, as this beautiful entrepreneur is truly quite a coveted hair stylist on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Beginning at the now non-existent Haime Munoz salon – of whom also has his own line of product specializing in straightening treatment – you’ll currently find her cameo appearances at Salon Visentin on East 70th Street (or you can fly her out as some do).
Nailing down the perfect shade of Park Avenue-butterscotch blonde hair, her blonde mop following wouldn’t know what to do without her. Alas they have her product in her place – just in case – not an invention but a discovery she has decided to share and make accessible for all of North America.
One would imagine something as powerful and potent as such was scouted out far and wide. But Kosia truly found this gold right in her own backyard and decided to do something about it. Surprisingly no one has shared the Moringa news in the west as of yet, but secrets are only fun if you get to tell someone - especially if they cross over international borders.
In its most basic description, incorporating Moringa Seed Oil into all hair and skin care products through a cold press method, the user acquires full potential benefits of including 1,700 antioxidants without harmful chemicals, artificial color fragrance.
Kosia Naturals, along with providing this majestic Moringa Oil, takes it one step further in encouraging everyone to “Love Yourself” – the slogan being the brand’s premiere campaign. A key message humbly boasted in more than one language, the word(s), amate a ti mismo, vous aimer, amare se stessi,любить себя, 自分自身を愛する, liebe dich selbst are advertised through t-shirts and promotional reel; you may not understand them all but saying it all is the heart behind this brand.
More on Moringa is available at www.kosianaturals.com where you can also purchase the complete line of product. Amazon.com proudly carries a selection as well. If May's issue of Vogue Magazine finds its way into your hands, spin through to page 206 where you’ll find the “it” ingredient. If Vogue is all-knowing when it comes to everything fashion and beauty, “Revered by the ancients, this nutrient-rich tree is ripe for revival,” well - there you have it.
