Dear FAR-B Team, I am extremely satisfied with my products that I received, but especially with the moisturizer. This happens to be the first hair product that keeps my hair moisturized, glossy-yet-NON-greasy and can actually double as a heat protectant for those who opt to blow dry or flat iron their hair…this product confirms that ‘A Little Can go a Long Way’…. I use a dime size after coming outta the shower and I am able to style my hair without using gel. I am looking forward to the expansion of your line… Thank you Far Botanicals~
I use FAR Botanicals as part of my everyday hair care routine. I LOVE using the Amarula butter on the ends of my hair at night before putting my hair up in a few bantu knots, in the morning, I use a bit of Cojoba gel on my scalp to wake it up without needing to use any water. I find that using the Cojoba gel in combination with a bit of Verde Oil Supreme helps to lock the moisture into my hair and keep it from drying out for the rest of the day without it tightening up into a tiny fro the way it would with water. FARB has helped my hair grow significantly and has reduced the amount of breakage I see after a shower to practically zero. LOVE FARB, couldn’t imagine a day without it.
I started with the Lavender Absolute, only because Lavender has never been one of my favorite scents. Well, I am going to have to adjust my non-favorites as Lavender Absolute blew me away. It is such a SOFT Lavender that it caught me off guard at first. I think part of my dislike was due to anything Lavender I had smelled was always too strong or overpowering. This little powerhouse bottle does not need to overpower you. It is such a gentle fragrance!! But the real story is in the oil. It is a NON oily oil – that is to say that it does NOT leave any oily residue or a tacky feeling. It only takes a few drops which I massage gently into my hair and I actually see improvement as I apply it. Seriously, tired, dull, lifeless hair became vibrant!! It really livened up my hair – giving it such a healthy shine.
The Verde Oil is just delicious. I bought the Rosewood and the Fresh and both scents are lovely, not too strong and definitely something I don’t mind wearing all day. Like other customer’s experience, the oil sank right in for me leaving my hair soft and very shiny. I confess that I also rub this on my skin like a body oil and my skin loves it too! One bottle lasts a long time, I’ve had my 2 since May and I’ve only gotten through half of one. 5 star product!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Cojoba Styling “Gel”. It is more of a cream than a gel, but it is fabulous. No stiff/sticky hair! I am on my third bottle. I also tried five of the six of the oils … guess I’m more of a Low Scent gal, because although I like many of the scents, they are very strong. Oil is a bit to thin (difficult to use without dumping too much in hand). But I will use Cojoba Gel for LIFE!!!
I love the Cojoba gel! As a stylists doing curly hair all day, it’s nice to have such a reliable and versatile gel. It has so much shine, great for diffusing, blowing the hair out or air-drying. I also fell in love with the Day One Clarifying Shampoo. This shampoo is lather free and leaves your hair feeling refreshed and moisturized. As someone who rarely shampoos, this is one I could use weekly if needed without compromising the integrity and moisture in my curls!
I just love the FAR products. First of all, the aroma is absolutely pampering. I loved falling asleep with that spa like lavender aroma and today, my hair is already about 75% softer and less frizzy with all this humidity. Can’t wait until tonight to smell that smell again before bed.
Coco-Mint Shampoo Mask: If you’ve never used a shampoo that has absolutely no sulfates you probably won’t be used to this product, however, I’m kinda that NO POO kinda lady so this was a treat after I tried it. It left my hair feeling clean without the squeaky, dry feel of clean. No residue feeling from this one, pure and definitely natural.
I would categorize my hair as having curl with a mind of its own, a little bit ‘wiry’ with age. FAR products never disappoint. I believe for the first time I found a system of hair products that enhances my hair’s natural curl and texture. It’s shiny and soft. There is nothing heavy or false about any of the line I have used. I love the compliments I receive and the healthy hair that responds -maybe for the first time- to a look that’s me! I wear my hair every day and it has to look natural and good! A bonus is the pleasant smell of all the products and the fact everything is made from pure botanicals. I feel good about using this line. And I feel even better knowing it’s made in OHIO by a female-owned business.”
I absolutely love this [VOS] sampler set! I not only used the precious serum on my hair but also as a luscious fragrant scent on my body and I used their low scent to moisturize my face. And you’ll love the smells! They are luscious and yummy! The serum is really good for your hair. It never made my hair look greasy, oily or smell weird. It gave it a silky, shiny finish with a gorgeous, light fragrance.
I am starting with my favorite, the Vegasilk body oil. I love this product. It exceeded my expectations, so much so that I bought two more! Smell: not heavy, and remains faint throughout the day, does not compete with other smells or draw attention; I work out in a spa that does not allow perfume and this never interferes. Texture: incredible; this is the best part of this product; it is easy to “spread” on my skin; absorbs immediately; is not sticky for clothes. Impact: this is a wow; my husband had hives on his back and I used this on one side of his back to be able to see the difference; within hours, the hives were less; I used it on my very dry skin, using it only on one leg for three days; huge difference; I used it on hands (no oily residue); heals – immediately softer; the result is immediate and long lasting.
I love the cojoba styling gel. This product is so perfect for naturally curly hair. I had purchased this product at a salon that I had visited so I was delighted when I found your web site. I have tried all kinds of styling gels and they all dry my scalp or I can’t seem to wash them out of my hair. I like all the natural ingredients and look forward to trying some of your other products.
Dear Far Botanicals, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For your wonderful hair products! I happily tell everyone who compliments me on how beautiful my hair looks, that I’m a Far Botanicals Fan!
I wear my hair very short so it will be a month or so before I know how the shampoo and moisturizer will work for me. So far, so good and I’m confident I’ll fall in love with them as much as I LOVE THE VERDE SERUM OIL!!! For me it was love at first drop. I love the scent, love what it does to my hair and a tiny bit goes a loooooong way which is great. I will definitely be ordering the larger sizes, asap. I think and hope these products are a tremendous success. I also love the packaging. It’s very clean, simple and kind of elegant, too. Looks like you have a winner on your hands!
This is the best product ever! I needed this 42 years ago. Years and years of using everything ever recommended and my hair would never hold a curl. Now girlfriends ask me if I got a perm. Never! Natural girls rock!
