When I started to get more interested in natural products early last year, one of the first things that I switched up was haircare. Having naturally wavy (read: frizzy) hair, things like silicones and SLS weren’t really working for me. Plus the whole your body absorbing products through the scalp seemed like something I should be paying attention to. I’ve been working my way through a few natural brands, and one of my favourites has to be John Masters Organics.
Organic is the purest form of any ingredient you can find…
Who are John Masters Organics?
The brand was founded in the 90s after John Masters, a hairdresser, began to look for more natural haircare to mirror the holistic approach he followed in his life. He founded a natural salon in New York and since then the brand has been sold across the globe. All of the products are made from at least 70% organic ingredients, with the focus on organic elements due to their purity, efficacy and gentleness.
Hair Spray – link
Starting with my most-used product to date – the (non-aerosol) hair spray. This was the first product I tried from the brand, and one I will definitely repurchase when it’s done (which will be very soon as there’s only a few drops left…). I love hairspray because I have hair that does not cooperate once I’ve styled it unless I set it – it’s also very temperamental when it comes to the weather, so sealing things in is sort of a must. This one I love so much because it’s not an aerosol so I don’t end up choking once I’ve applied and it uses natural ingredients to hold a style. Organic aloe leaf juice & acacia senegal gum to be precise, which help to keep the hair soft and bouncy but still lock in the style. It lasts just as well as a conventional hair spray, but also smells infinitely nicer and doesn’t leave hair all scrunched and dry.
Shampoo for normal hair with lavender & rosemary – link
I tend to co-wash my hair twice a week to keep everything as hydrated as possible but then once a week I go in with a proper shampoo to deep clean. Something to reset the hair, typically followed by a deep conditioner. This shampoo foams with naturally-derived sulfactants and helps to get rid of any build-up or greasiness, but it doesn’t leave hair squeaky or stripped. Oh, and it smells completely divine with the lavender and organic rosemary.
Hair milk with rose & apricot – link
After washing my hair, I pretty much smother it in creams, balms and oils so this hair milk fitted right into my existing routine. It’s super light in texture, so I could imagine this being a great addition for pretty much anyone’s routine without weighing down the hair (but especially anyone with wavy or dry hair). It smells dreamy and noticeably softens hair, as well as helping hair to dry in a gentle wave on its own. Organic rose flower water helps to soften, apricot oil has loads of vitamins and cupuacu butter protects against pollution for daily wear.
Leave-in conditioning mist – link
So this is the brand’s newest launch and is new to me but it caught my eye. Second and third-day hair for me tends to cry out for hydration, so something to top it up sounded perfect. It’s a daily mist that claims to help detangle, smooth frizz & flyaways and help protect against environmental factors. It has calendula, which is generally amazing for healing and soothing and green tea, for the antioxidant protection. Probably not an essential step for daily use, but a great addition for diminishing frizz. Would be also excellent for non-lazy people who brush their hair on a daily basis.
