Cleaning up my beauty routine came with a price – letting go of all conventional hair products, the ones I rely on and the countless ones that I had on my radar…because, let’s face it, all these miracle hair promises are irresistible.
I wanted all-natural hair products and all evidence led to TABITHA JAMES KRAAN. What appealed to me about the brand was that Tabitha James-Kraan, the person, knows a thing or two about hair so I was not sending my money into the deep abyss of ineffective products and green-washing brands. A hairstylist who owns her own salon, she took her time developing her products and tested them thoroughly before launching them.
Here are my thoughts on the products I picked up a couple of months ago:
Clean Shampoo |Golden Citrus|
I have mixed emotions about the shampoo. It doesn’t lather as much as conventional shampoos do, true – but it certainly cleans my scalp effectively. My only issue with it is that I need a substantial amount of product for it to do the job properly, so that’s not very economical.
Clean Conditioner |Golden Citrus|
The first time I used the conditioner, I left it on for 10 minutes, and when I wanted to rinse my hair, nothing really came out. I was quite baffled! The conditioner actually penetrates my hair and stays there, leaving my hair manageable without weighing it down. I have always suspected that conventional conditioners and hair products give me bacne, and I have to say that it has significantly improved after I started using this.
Organic 4 in 1 Conditioner |Amber Rose|
This is a very versatile product – I love that I can use it on wet or dry hair, and before I blow-dry my hair or even after to tame any frizz. It never weighs my hair down or makes it feel greasy; it just makes it very soft. Also, the Amber Rose scent happens to be my favorite from the brand so using this 4 in 1 conditioner is always a treat for my senses.
I will definitely be repurchasing these products, this time in the largest size available! I am also itching to try the rest of her products, including the Amber Rose Organic Scented Hair Oil and Hair Perfume as well as the Organic Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair.
