Tabitha James Kraan Shampoo & Conditioner | Beauty Review

5 Sep 2015

When I visited the Natural & Organic Products Show back in April, I had the pleasure of meeting Tabitha herself! I reviewed her Dry Shampoo last year and I'm still using it - such a lovely product. She kindly gave me a couple of their new products to try out so it's time I shared my thoughts..
I'll start off with their Golden Citrus Organic Hair Cleanser* which is made with 86% organic ingredients and is a bit of a twist on your standard shampoo. It doesn't foam! Something that you definitely have to get your head around when "cleaning" your hair. Now you should all know, foamy bubbles doesn't necessarily mean it's cleaning any better however this formula is one that I've been finding really hard to get along with.

I get greasy hair after about 2-3 days from washing and I will often use the TJK Dry Shampoo in-between washes to keep my hair looking fresh. However, I find that this shampoo is just a bit too moisturising for my hair. I do a double shampoo with this to thoroughly cleanse but when I start drying my hair, it just feels too moist at the roots. It tends to look a little greasy (which is not a good thing when I work in a cake shop) even though it isn't as I've only just washed it. It does work well if I wash my hair with a foaming clarifying shampoo and then go in with this to keep my hair moist & untangled however I couldn't justify the price when I have to use another shampoo as well.

The ingredients are fabulous though and include aloe vera, oatmilk, argan oil, coconut oil and essential oils of neroli, tea tree, tangerine, lavender, myrrh and bergamot and it smells absolutely divine. Unfortunately I just couldn't get on with this on it's own but if you have dry hair and suffer with scalp issues, I'd definitely recommend considering this as an option as it's so nourishing.


However...the Golden Citrus 4-in-1 Conditioner* is another story...
This multi-use conditioner can be used as a traditional conditioner, a leave-in treatment, a nourishing scalp cream and a curl styling cream. It is very, very lightweight which I think is why I get on with it so well. I don't really tend to condition my hair however I've been using this with the Faith in Nature shampoo (which can leave my hair a little tangled) to detangle and moisturise my hair and it leaves my hair so so soft and manageable.

It has ingredients similar to the cleanser and includes organic rosehip oil, argan oil, coconut oil and essential oils of neroli, tangerine, bergamot & myrrh and smells just as good as the cleanser. This retails at £22.50 for 150ml and has 92% organic ingredients. I'd definitely consider repurchasing this one as it leaves my hair so soft and untangled without weighing it down or leaving it greasy. I haven't used it as a curling cream or a leave-in treatment yet but if I do I'll update this post with how I get on.

If you'd like to try these two products...keep an eye out on my blog tomorrow (Sunday 6th September) as there's a way you can try them without forking out on both!
