My Daughter was born sporting the cutest little Faux Halk – the sides of her head was completely bare, and on the top was a short fluff of down. Back then, managing her hair was a breeze – shampooing was effortless and most days, I finger combed, it was bliss. Fast forward six years later and Jordan’s hair has transformed itself into a beautiful mass of long, brown/black curliness. As beautiful her hair is, it is equally a pain in the rear. Managing her hair can certainly be a chore – fighting with frizz, tangles, dryness and those yucky germs threatens to drive me crazy on a daily basis.
Nevertheless, being a avid DIYer, I have managed to concoct a few natural potions and cleansers to help manage her hair. Regardless of the fact that I make my own hair care, I also like to keep a few natural brands handy for the times when I just don’t have the time or desire to make my own. For that reason, I was excited to learn about Fairy Tales Natural hair care.
A few weeks ago I received Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Shampoo, Conditioner and Conditioning Spray to review with my daughter – the first thing that attracted me was the impressive formula of natural hair loving ingredients used. This line contains pure rosemary, citronella, tea tree oil, lavender oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera, geranium, peppermint oil, cinnamon oil and natural fruit extracts, just to name a few. It is free of synthetic detergents, preservatives, parabens, sulfates and other harsh toxins. And, even though this Rosemary Repel line is antibacterial and antifungal, it doesn’t have a heavy medicine smell, instead, it has a light, almost tranquil fragrance that Jordy loves.
I honestly enjoyed managing Jordan’s hair with Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel – the shampoo is gentle, it is not over-sudsy, instead, it lathers subtly and effectively cleans, and the creamy conditioner softened and completely detangled her hair. Nevertheless, my favorite product has to be the Rosemary Repel Conditioning Spray – it is a wonderful detangler and leave-in conditioner treatment, it hydrated her hair and made styling a pleasure. And, I love that I can spray it in her hair before she leaves for school to help deter head lice and other icky bacteria… I would highly recommend Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel to anyone with hair – it is made for our kids but we can use it too.
