I recently received the Straight Away Shampoo and Conditioner from the Tara Smith brand and as soon as I took the little bottles out of the parcel, I was excited. The packaging is very unusual and looks totally different to all the other numerous bottles of product I have sat in my bathroom. I also love the fact that they contain no parabens, phthalates, glycols or synthetic fragrances - just to name a few horrid chemicals. I am always a fan of products without parabens as I have heard that they can play havoc with your hormones. Scary stuff eh?!
Not only are the products nice to your hair, but also the environment, as all the ingredients are natural, organic and 'earth friendly. And when you think things can't get any better, the products are made in the UK!
AND there is no animal testing to be heard of. The products are 'tested on film stars not on animals'.
So if it's good enough for the film stars, it must be good enough for us girls right?
Well, overall, I'm quite impressed. Both the shampoo and the conditioner have a nice lemon-y ginger scent so my hair was left smelling fresh after each use. My hair also felt squeaky clean and it didn't get anymore greasy, any quicker, than usual (a good sign, I guess?). The only problem I have with the product is that as it doesn't contain any sodium laureth sulphate, it really doesn't foam up much, and I love a good foamy shampoo.
But, that would have it be its one and only flaw. I love the packaging, the smell and how earth and hair friendly both the shampoo and conditioner are and I would definitely recommend giving them a go!
They are available for £6.50 each in the 250ml size or £3.75 for the smaller 100ml bottle and you can order them from here.
