WHY choose Tabitha JK Eco-luxe hair care?
My inspiration was the realisation that so much plastic is used in hair care (and all personal care products & cosmetics generally) 9-10 products use it as an ingredient in the formulation up to as much as 80% volume. Do check out the "plastic soup foundation" for facts. 
Certified Organic? - for me organic is a given and crucial for biodiversity and our future. This is not to be underestimated choosing to support organic products supports organic farming, simple!  This supports biodiversity and protects our soil for future generations.  Your choices really do make a difference 💚
Performance - You need products that work, we (the hairdressers) also need products that work - we succeeded in creating products that change the game and reveal beautiful hair whilst protecting your health and wellbeing as well as that of the planet.  This win-win situation exemplifies the innovative approach of hair care professionals towards creating a sustainable and responsible product line.💚
Step 1: Oil Balancing with Scented organic hair oil
The very first step of anyone’s Eco-Luxe hair ritual should be applying TJK’s scented organic hair oil (which is the pre-wash oil) and fine hair is no exception. This oil mimics the acid mantle and brings the hair back to life and lustre. It should be applied to the dehydrated areas of the hair that are not being nourished by the hair’s natural oil.  If you have fine hair use half a pump and do the treatment once a week.
Scented Organic hair oil for fine hair use as a pre-wash hair oil
  • The scented organic hair oil will improve the condition, feel and the balance of the hair and scalp. 
  • Add shine and natural lustre to the hair
  • Put back the acid mantle - the protective layer that should lightly coat and protect the skin and the hair
  • Correct the moisture balance and support the maintenance of the moisturising of the hair
  • It will richen the colour revealing the true tones and variations and deepening the shine.
  • Make the hair more manageable and reveal the correct weight of the hair, stopping flyaways and plumping the hair
  • Will give the hair more body and volume without weighing it down.
Imagine brushing your hair 100 strokes a day. You’d really work your natural oils through the hair. But it’d take longer for the oil to reach lower down the length of your hair. This oil is for those parts of your hair that never get the natural oil. Because that oil is really good for the hair. It brings the fabric of hair back to life.
When you put this protection back in place, it creates a situation where the hair is back in balance and protected, it is then the right weight and can hold moisture correctly. Which makes the hair more manageable and reveals it’s life and lustre.
Without this protection in place, the hair is more reactive to atmospherics, so any bit of moisture in the air changes the hair’s form.  This can make fine hair static and flyaway, lank and lifeless.
Begin your weekly hair ritual …
Apply half a pump into the palm of your hand and warm by rubbing your palms together.  Remember less is more effective especially for fine hair. Take a moment to inhale with three slow, deep breaths. This product is infused with our signature Amber Rose aromatherapy scent which is designed to give you a warm loving hug and calm and centre you. Taking us out of our busy thinking and brings us down into our heart energy, deeply relaxing us and calms our senses.
Apply the warmed oil to the body of your hair, via the mid lengths and through to the ends. 
Use the flats of your hands to apply the oil, smoothing it over the hair, re-applying until the oil has fully transferred from your hands to the hair.
If your scalp is oily or dry and needs some love to balance it, then apply a small amount more to your hands and warm as before.
Here comes the self care - now it is time to breathe in the aromatherapy, get cosy, warm and comfortable either lying on your bed or relax in a warm bath.  Now take three long, slow, deep breaths and take your time to inhale the oil in your hands. Allow yourself to come down and root yourself into the ground, allow nature to envelop you, calm and centre you.
Massage your head with both hands at the same time if you can, hold the head and open fingers. Gently move your hands around the head without breaking contact. Find a pressure that you like and play with the rhythm and pace that you use. 
Enjoy how it feels and the warmth from your hands and keep breathing so that you feel your neck relax and shoulders start to drop.
For fine hair the ideal way to use this product is to sleep in the oil overnight. This will also allow the hair to fully absorb the oil getting the best out of the product and enjoy a deep sleep.
This is a  less is more product but don’t underestimate the impact a small amount will make to your hair and scalp
A little extra magic…
Each bottle of our Scented Organic Hair oil contains an amethyst stone – it is given with love from Tabitha, who’s purest intention with this is to raise the vibration of the product.
Amethyst helps us to break negative thought patterns, uplifts and opens our minds. Given that this oil goes straight onto the hair, so close to the head she thought it would be lovely to give you a gift that comes with such lovely, positive affirmations.
Of course, not everyone is open to what the crystal might do for the product. But when we tested the scent, with and without the Amethyst, the difference the crystal made was incredible. It smelt so much better and so much more alive with the amethyst in it.
Step 2: Correct Cleansing 
When it comes to the hair itself, cleaning this most delicate of fabrics with 100% organic ingredients is remarkable. Using pure moisture, really brings it back to life, nourishes it and prepares it for styling. 
Washing the hair organically also requires us to think about the hair and the scalp as two separate entities – and identify what each needs. 
The scalp needs to be cleaned gently, without disrupting the natural behaviour of the body. Traditional shampoos are, by definition, degreasants. The process of removing all traces of oil from the skin triggers the body to overproduce oil to put it back. But there’s more. This also sends the body into chaos and can affect the hormones, the endocrine system and general functions of the body as it’s working hard doing something it’s not supposed to do. 
By using TJK washing products to gently clean the scalp we have a very different conversation with the body. One that is supportive and achieves harmony and balance. 
Making the subtle shift from ‘stripping our hair’ to ‘cleansing our scalp and root areas’ – with a focus on the crown and the nape of the neck – involves replacing harsh detergents with gentle cleansing soap that cleans the acid mantle (a protective layer that keeps our skin balanced, happy and healthy) without stripping the scalp of its natural oil / sebum.
Washing your hair the TJK way - The Why...
Traditional shampoo is, by definition, a degreasant. Its job is to remove all traces of oil from your hair and scalp. Most people drop a huge blob of shampoo onto the top of their head, rub it in and create a mass of lather that runs all the way to the ends of the hair. This strips the hair of all its moisture and, crucially, its acid mantle.
The acid mantle is a protective layer on the skin that protects the scalp, keeping everything happy and harmonious. Preserving the moisture balance of our hair, it also shields each strand from harmful UV rays and environmental toxins.  
Removing the acid mantle is the biggest cause of most hair problems such as frizzy, flyaway, dehydrated, dry, brittle, splitting, de-moisturised, lank, static and motionless hair.
TJK washing products do not contain detergent. They do not strip the oil, instead they gently cleanse it, refreshing the hair and, crucially, leaving the acid mantle in place.  
Each time you wash your hair with traditional shampoo you essentially go back to square one. Instead, you need to build up the protective layer of the acid mantle over time by washing consistently with our cleansers or shampoo. 
This will leave your hair feeling like it has more life. Your hair and scalp will start to re-balance – and the hair will get its natural weight back. As you start to find balance your hair will start to stay clean for longer and require washing less often. 

Apply around a 10p piece worth to your hands, spread it in your palms and then cup your scalp with your hands. Start at the back, then apply at the crown and both sides. Once you have applied product to your scalp evenly massage as your normal shampoo routine, focusing on the roots and scalp area – the nape of the neck, the crown area, behind the ears and a little at the top of the head at the front – do not take the product through to the ends of the hair.  
Clean Shampoo vs Hair Cleanser? 
The hair cleanser is the problem solver. If you're too oily, or too dry, or anywhere is out of balance, the hair cleanser solves these problems. 
If you don't have any problems with your hair or scalp, use the shampoo. 
Both products train your hair to stay clean for longer and are suitable for hair that is colour treated, or not. For all hair types and all genders. 
This ‘shampoo replacement’s’ job is to clean the oil in your hair, not remove it. Non-detergent based, this product uses natural soap bark to create a gentle lather. Designed to be non-invasive, so as not to disrupt the natural function of the scalp. Our scalp should not be oily every day. If it is, this tells us our body is very out of balance. The hair cleanser’s job is to address this imbalance – and start us on a journey to calm down the overproduction of oil.
If our body has been overproducing oil for most of our life this is not something that will change instantly. Consistent use of this product will teach the body to respond more calmly. When our scalp gets locked in a cycle of overproducing oil this disrupts our endocrine system and leaves our hormones in chaos. 
Certified organic and non-detergent based, this shampoo is very light. Packed with nourishing and moisturising ingredients it does what a shampoo does – this very mild cleansing agent will remove the oil, but in a much gentler way.
Just wet the hair through and apply to the roots, scalp and underneath the hairline – and then rinse. You don't need to wash through to the ends of your hair. You'll deal with that in the moisturising phase. 
Stop after one wash and see how the hair feels. 
In the beginning, you might need a second wash if the scalp isn’t fully clean, or it feels like you've missed a bit. Use a second wash to go over areas you have missed if required in the first month of using the product, but then stop with a second wash as it is not necessary. That second wash is just a marketing gimmick to get you to use more product. 
Step 3: Moisture Layering 
4-in-1 Conditioner

This multi-functional hair moisturiser has four different uses. A small amount of our hair oil gives it this lovely richness – it’s pure moisture. Wherever you put it, the hair will absorb it.
It's a detangler in the shower, a great styling product, a traditional conditioner or a leave-in conditioner. You can apply it to wet or dry hair. Just leave it in to protect any drier areas. 
As a styling product, use it for heat protection, for styling and dressing the hair in between washes, whether you're wearing it smooth or curly. Again, that can be wet or dry. 
As a finishing product, you don't need a serum just use this instead. It contains a small amount of our scented organic hair oil, which gives it this lovely richness – it's pure moisture. Wherever you put it, it will just absorb into the hair.
Why four in One?
Use TJK’s 4-in-1 Conditioner for the second stage of washing, which is also the conditioning phase. We clean the hair a second time with moisture (conditioner).
Apply as a leave in conditioner to the areas of the hair that need it most, ie. mid lengths, ends and any areas that are damaged or over-processed. 
Use for heat protection and as a styling aid. Apply roots to tips and style or blow dry as required. 
Finish with 4-1 conditioner 
Apply as a serum to finish the hair. TJK’s 4-in-1 Conditioner can be applied to wet or dry hair anytime the hair needs reviving, volumising, smoothing, dressing, restyling, finishing or just moisturising. This can be done as many times as required until the next wash, even if that is daily over five to seven days. 

Extra note: when the hair needs an extra boost our secret weapon is the TJK Clean Conditioner (instant hair mask). This product is very intense and should be used sparingly just to the areas of the hair that really need hydrating or repairing. Apply underneath the TJK 4-in-1 Conditioner during the conditioning phase (Phase One) and rinse out. 
Clean Conditioner 

Everybody's hair needs moisturising. The 4-in-1 is brilliant at that. But it's light, it's designed to be layered. This instant hair mask gives your hair a very, very deep hit of moisture – you should only apply it where and you need it. 
You don’t need to use it all the time. Put it through your driest areas, once every second or third wash this will plump fine hair and it really does give it volume.  Do remember to only apply it to the mid-lengths and ends as it would be too much for the root area.
How to use
Apply a small amount to wet hair, just where you need it and apply the 4-in-1 on top as a detangler to comb it all through. Then rinse it all off. 
This is not a leave-in product. But, of course, there are rules to break with every range. If you have very curly hair and / or very thick, strong hair you can play with it as a leave-in product. People with these hair types tend to know what their hair can take. So they can bend the rules with it. But for most people it's a wash off product. 
Dry Shampoo to set your final look
This dry shampoo is great to volumise and set fine hair once your have blown the hair dry or heat styled the hair. Simply spray into the roots and shake it in.
There are two dry shampoos in a fair and dark version – choose yours according to your hair colour. 
Apply this very light organic powder in a fine mist to absorb the oil and take away any shine at the roots. 
If you're starting to look and feel a bit greasy after a few days,  it’s great to support you in prolonging your hair in between washes. It’s also an amazing volumiser. Or if you have blow dried your hair and want to keep it looking nice for as long as possible apply it to your roots to really lift and volumise the hair and give it texture.
