Tabitha James Kraan



Switching to natural beauty products, one of my biggest fears came with the subject of haircare. With naturally oily hair, I worried that natural shampoo and conditioner wouldn't have the same cleansing effect on my hair, leaving me with an oily mess. I shouldn't have wasted the energy worried, though, because since I began making my haircare routine green my hair has been in better shape then ever before.

I've mentioned a few of my favorite brands in the past, and now I want to add another to list. Hailing from the UK, Tabitha James Kraan has been a godsend, truly. I recently wrote up a little blurb on them over at Brit + Co in a post that highlighted the best of the best natural hair brands, and I truly believe it holds a place in that category. While they are UK-based thanks to Petit Vour they are available in the US, which means these gorgeous products are more easily accessible.

For the past month now I've been trialling a full routine from the line - their Amber Rose Organic Hair Cleanser*, Amber Rose 4-in-1 Conditioner* and their Dry Shampoo*. While each product is fantastic enough that you could use it alone, the trio together has the most powerful effect and honestly becomes almost an experience to use, not just a typical routine.

Let's start with the Dry Shampoo*, which is an organic formula that is available in both a "fair" and "darker" shade, encompassing all hair colors. With ingredients such as organic essential oils, as well as chestnut and tapioca powder, all you need to do is shake a little bit of this dreamy formula into your hands and rub it into your scalp, leaving you with voluminous locks. The ingredients blend in fantastically, so you're never left looking like you're using dry shampoo - a big plus. Tabitha recommends using this between shampoos, and when using her Hair Cleanser* I find that I can go a day with just using this instead of cleansing my hair again.

The Amber Rose Organic Hair Cleanser* smells, in a word, heavenly. Amber and rose are two of my favorite fragrance notes, and in this organic formula they smell so unbelievably pure and beautiful. That's not to say that's even the highlight of this formula, because it's not. This is not like your regular shampoo that lathers like crazy - it's a wonderful way to naturally cleanse your hair, using ingredients such as oat milk, aloe vera, and Soapbark tree bark. Unlike detergent based shampoos that strip the hair of its natural oil (causing the sebum glands in the scalp to go into overdrive) this natural cleanser allows the scalp and hair to "establish its own equilibrium", leaving you with naturally gorgeous hair. I personally have been adoring this formula, which has helped tremendously in balancing my oily hair. Not only does it leave my hair smelling incredible but it helps my scalp and hair feeling so much more balanced.

Working in perfect combination with the Cleanser is the brand's Amber Rose 4-in-1 Conditioner*, a lightweight yet moisturizing formula. The 4-in-1 title is very much true - not only can this be used as a conventional conditioner, but it can also be used as a scalp treatment, a styling tool or even a leave-in conditioner for wet or dry hair. Quite the multi-use product, it employs ingredients such as rosehip, organ and coconut oils, as well as oat milk to protect and nourish the hair with vitamins, minerals and strengthening proteins. I usually use conditioner only every once and awhile, so my hair doesn't become an oily mess. But with this lightweight formula I always use it directly after the Hair Cleanser, as I feel they work in tandem for maximum effect. With the same amazing scent, this is truly a multi-use miracle worker I cannot get enough of!

If you get the chance I cannot recommend this brand enough! Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep up with all their latest and greatest - I can guarantee it will be beautiful.
