What is Awapuhi Ginger?
Awapuhi is a native Hawaiian plant that has been used by the indigenous people of these islands for hundreds of years. It is often referred to as “shampoo ginger,” and its most well-known use is that of a shampoo and hair conditioner. However, the gel from the flowers is also used as a massage lubricant, the root is used for indigestion, toothache, and sprains and as a fragrance to scent clothing, and the leaves can be used as a flavoring for foods. The root of the plant was not traditionally used in cooking (as common ginger is), but you can drink the flower gel to quench your thirst. Awapuhi is a perennial plant; it dies back each winter, and grows anew in the spring. The leaf stalks are the first to emerge, growing up to three feet tall with several blade-like leaves on each stalk. During the summer months, the flower stalk emerges from the soil, rather than growing from the leaf stalk as one might expect. The flower is club shaped with overlapping scales that fill with liquid as the flower matures and turns red. After the flower dies in the fall, the roots are harvested and dried for later use (see the Solar Dehydration Shed for more on this).
Paul Mitchell Farm
The John Paul Mitchell Systems Awapuhi Farm was established over 25 years ago by Paul Mitchell and John Paul DeJoria. Paul Mitchell came to Hawai’i after leaving a successful career of styling in England. Meanwhile, John Paul DeJoria had decided that he was ready for a career change after reaching the limit of what he could accomplish with other hair care companies. They were each in search of something new and different. Together they created John Paul Mitchell Systems. While pursuing a lifestyle that was more connected to nature and more in tune with their beliefs, they purchased the land in Pa’auilo, Hawaii that would become the Farm, and were inspired by the lush natural beauty, and the abundance of edible and medicinal plants. When they learned of the wild ginger that native Hawaiians had used for centuries to soften and condition their hair, Paul and John Paul decided to grow this plant on the Farm and use it in their line of hair care products. This was the beginning of the John Paul Mitchell Systems Awapuhi Farm. You can read more here.
