It started with a problem
It seemed that no matter what hair styling product I used, when I would start to sweat my eyes would begin to sting.
So much so that I would struggle to keep focus on what I was doing. This whilst playing guitar on stage in a band, with my eyes burning. It also wasn't great when playing sport.
I also have sensitive skin so I would often struggle with an itchy and flaky scalp. The problem was the ingredients in my hair wax - synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals among other nasties were the issue.
Do no harm
Natural, but effective
Any natural products I'd try were either too expensive or just weren't as effective as my traditional styling products. So I decided to make my own.
My mission was to create natural hair styling products that actually worked. Hair waxes that actually improved the condition of my hair and scalp, and solved my problem of stinging eyes. Hair styling products that do no harm.
I created dozens and dozens of prototypes in my kitchen, and trialled out my creations with local barbers and friends to get their feedback and tweak my recipes.
My go-to hair product. They’re completely sustainable and make great products.
Amazing product. Love that it’s all natural and works so well with lots of different hair types - highly recommend!
