Talk about trying out different things in the name of vanity! The buzz is that actress Anna Friel has started drinking a tea made of curry leaves in order to preserve the natural colour of her hair. The 36-year-old did do after she felt sick on seeing some grey strands in her tresses. That promoted her to do some research on natural methods for preserving hair.
She thus came upon the idea to have the unusual brew for her brunette locks. A site quoted her as saying, “I felt sick recently because I found one or two grey hair and I read that curry leaves help to maintain your hair colour, so I mix them with hot water and drink it as a tea.”
That’s not all she has tried. The Look of Love star, who is currently said to be dating actor Rhys Ifans, also drinks around 12 cups a day of the special brew made with hot cayenne pepper, maple syrup and lemon juice. It’s said to be her detox and anti-ageing treatment. And she admits to be very pleased with that also.
It’s amazing. I’ve been drinking it for two months and I feel so much better and my skin has really benefited. I’m always searching for pure, natural skin products,” she said. To preserve her youthful looks, Friel also has regular vampire facials, which involves having her own blood re-injected back into her face. “It’s meant to help your skin heal itself and boosts collagen. It makes my skin really glowy and tight again,” she said.
