Tabitha James Kraan Dry Shampoo | Beauty Review

I had seen Tamara’s review of Tabitha James Kraan‘s Dry Shampoo and then the Call it Vanity girls, Mayah & Sabrina also wrote a rave review and I expressed my need for the Dry Shampoo on Twitter! Tabitha then very kindly sent me a DM asking for my address as she was going to sent me a present in the post…two days later a Dry Shampoo for Darker Hair turned up! Thank you Tabitha, so kind of you!

Tabitha owns an eco-friendly salon in the Cotsworlds where she uses her own certified organic haircare range. The salon runs on 100% energy from renewable sources, they recycle 85% of their waste and is lit by low-energy light bulbs. They use environmentally friendly cleaning products and recyclable towels meaning they have ruled out the need for a washing machine and tumble dryer in the salon…you can’t get much more eco than that!

Dry Shampoo for Darker Hair* is a 100% natural and 90% organic product, filled with therapeutic botanicals including burdock, nettle and comfrey blended with the cleansing power of chestnut powder, tapioca powder and bicarbonate of soda. It is finished with an infusion of organic essential oils including may chang, benzoin, lemongrass and lavender….sounds amazing right?

I had started needing to wash my hair more and more which may have been because I was using too clarifying products which was causing my scalp to go into oil production over-drive. I had run out of my last dry shampoo so this came at the perfect time. It is housed in a gorgeous gold metal case, with a sifter on the top. You have to be careful not to “over pour” but the sifter does a pretty good job & is accurate. You simply sprinkle it over your hair where needed, rub into your scalp and then brush out. It immediately soaks up any oiliness in my hair, making it look much fresher & cleaner. I mainly have issues with my fringe (where my skincare products make it oily) and the crown of my head so this is where I focus with the dry shampoo. I also like to run some through the rest of my hair to give is some volume as it always goes flat when it’s greasy.

Because of the carefully picked ingredients, it removes oil from your roots without stripping your scalp of its natural oils meaning you can go longer between washes. 

The only small issue I have is that it can make your scalp feel a bit gritty & if I scratch my head, I get the product under my nails so you do have to make sure you thoroughly brush it out and don’t apply too much. 

I have been loving this dry shampoo as it’s such a luxury product and yes it does have a hefty price tag but the ingredients are flawless and you get great results, so in my opinion it’s definitely worth the Β£27.95.

  7. Thanks for the shout out πŸ™‚ this stuff is seriously good, I find that if I brush it out with hair upside down grittiness seems to be less of a problem xx

  8. Dry shampoos are lost on me, I'd rather just wash my hair, perhaps I'm just not trendy enough to be down with the kids lol Joking aside, sound like a great product but greasiness isn't an issue for me so wouldn't be worth me trying πŸ™‚
