Unlike most salons you will notice we are not linked with any big brands claiming they use ‘natural ingredients’ in their products, when in reality these natural ingredients are then mixed with harsh chemicals and perfumes that completely counteract the effects of these beautiful plants. We go straight to the source and mix up the raw ingredients to create bespoke products specific to you and your hair.
We use a combination of our 100% natural, homemade products alongside some naturally based, cruelty free products we buy through well researched, ethical companies. Below are just some of the lovely natural and vegan friendly products we use at Tame the Mane.
For WASHING the hair we provide several options for varying hair types which range from using natural clays and powders for people who want to go all in and see how nature provides us with all we need to some very mild and gentle vegan shampoos.
The shampoos we stock use very few or no sulphates or preservatives and are suitable for pets and children. We also stock plastic free shampoo cubes and bars from UK based companies.
If you are a “no-pooer” (one who does not use shampoo) we have many wonderful options and advice for you on your journey.
For people with curly hair or prefer to co-wash, we also have this option in the salon.
For CONDITIONING your locks we have lots of yummy homemade treatments including Lara’s homemade flax and seaweed gel. This gel is like magic, it not only works inside the hair shaft as a protein treatment to strengthen the hair, it also leaves it soft and shiny working as a serum on the outside of the hair. Further to this we use organic oils and apple cider vinegar to return the hair to it’s perfect PH after leaving it soft and shiny.
We also have a beautiful conditioning treatment ‘Hmilk’ by Oway (our organic colour care system) that helps to rebuild the hairs bonds during and after colouring the hair.
As an experimental salon, we are always testing out new products, homemade or bought in to see how they work so you may be lucky enough to experience beautiful new conditioning treatments while you are with us!
At Tame the Mane we keep styling to a minimum, just using enough product to help the hair be calm and sit in it own beautiful way after a cut. For this we have some gorgeous homemade products including Lara’s flax and Irish Moss seaweed gel, homemade wax, salt sprays and natural oil serums. Again, if we find ethical companies that sell products we approve of we will have them to hand to try too!
