Ragnheiður Ragnarsdóttir – better known as Ragga Ragnars – shot to fame in the hugely popular historical drama series, Vikings, playing fan-favorite Gunnhild. The Icelandic actor, writer and designer is also a former professional and Olympic sprint freestyle swimmer who, after retiring from swimming in 2012 with multiple records under her belt, went on to pursue her passion for acting. Ragga graduated from New York Film Academy in Los Angeles before landing the hit role as the Nordic shield-maiden.
Sink or swim – making a change
“I was a professional swimmer for a very long time and had always noticed how chlorine wasn't the best thing for my hair. I have never taken particular care of my hair and wanted to get into a routine with good products to strengthen my hair after many years of swimming every day” Ragga explains. “To me, healthy hair is strong, full and shiny,” she says, which hers was not as chlorine had left it dry and damaged. Ragga discovered Harklinikken in 2021 through friends, and we’re delighted to be part of her amazing journey to stronger, fuller hair.
Under the spotlight
Just months after starting using Harklinikken’s all-natural products, Ragga is already seeing a difference in her hair. “I feel my hair has become thicker and stronger. I can see it has much more life now than before, when it was a bit dull,” she says. The change has affected not only her hair, but also her life. “I have never got into such a good habit of taking care of my hair as I do now. I love it.” she proclaims. Ragga has also realized the importance of using the right products to care for her hair: “I have learned so many new and great ways to take care of my hair. I used to not care what shampoo or conditioner I used, but now I see how much of a difference it makes.” Harklinikken’s hair care products are based on natural ingredients with documented effect, kind to both people and planet. For others wanting to gain healthier, stronger and fuller hair, her advice is simple: “I would suggest Harklinikken and to stick to it.” We can’t wait to see her hair get even better as she continues her hair journey with us.
The cornerstone of Ragga’s new hair regimen is our hair-growth Extract, a topical treatment to balance and boost scalp and hair, which she applies every night. Ragga cleanses her hair with Balancing Shampoo each morning or after working out, and hydrates afterward with Daily Conditioner. She also uses Hair Hydrating Crème daily for added moisture, topping up with Hair Mask weekly. "Hair Hydrating Crème and the Extract are both amazing. After experiencing what these products have already done for my hair, it has become a firm favorite hair care brand," she notes.
