HINU, meaning oil in Māori is a space dedicated to creating slow and intentional remedies, founded by Allie Cameron. Each product has been designed to make the daily hair routine a ritual, to celebrate the longevity of healthier hair.
How it all started
Born and raised in Aotearoa, I have a deep connection to nature and working with the earth as a way of medicine. Maori believe that the head is the most tapu, sacred, part of the body and where a strong connection to your mana, strength, is held. A few years ago I suffered from chronic stress and experienced hair loss as a result. I created the hair growth oil to reconnect back with my roots, my hair and myself. Through the ritual of hair oiling I was able to overcome hair loss, decrease stress and create a calm nervous system.
