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.
I absolutely love this 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 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 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 have been using all the products for over (3) months so this review is long overdue to an extent. I always like to make sure a review is thorough and justified based upon prolonged use. Since being natural over 3 years my hair has made numerous metamorphic changes (all good) but the products which claim to be ‘natural’ left me feeling there were no ‘real’ natural products out their, well until FAR Botanicals. All 3 products are spot on for natural heads!
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.
Essential Fatty-Acid Rich Moisturizer:
Now, when I’d ordered the sample pack, I had got another bottle of this from a friend of mines who swore by it so I already knew of the properties this one was packed with.
It works as a conditioner, yet it doesn’t weigh your hair down like some thick conditioners can. Love, love, love it because of how thick it is. I use it as either a pre-poo or a deep conditioner after shampooing.
Verde Serum Oil – FRESH!
I had to put the scent with this one because this has to be my favorite aroma FRESH was just that. The oil is not heavy at all, I know because I use black castor oil (need I say more here?)
I really like this in between shampooing, when your natural hair can get dry. With me living in Michigan and with weather here being in the single digits for over 3 days in a row, wearing wigs can leave your natural tresses underneath challenged at best.
However, with this serum, I have no problem with maintaining my ends in the middle of the week.
Your products are beautiful, the packaging was gorgeous and made me feel special.
Wanted to know if you’ll be adding a leave in conditioner to your line of products?
Love ya FAR Botanicals, your products exceed FAR and above my expectations (pardon the pun-lol)
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.
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 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!
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 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.
This 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 and very shiny similar to cones but without the cones! I confess that I also rub this on my skin like a perfume 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 have been using your products for over a month now and I can honestly say my hair is the softest and healthiest it has ever been. What I love most is that the moisturizer doesn’t leave my hair greasy, stiff or sticky and it’s my favorite out of the all of the products. I can put it on my hair wet or dry and my hair still comes out very soft.
I liked that these products are ecofriendly and cruelty free since I am a vegan. I think that since my hair is fine and closer to normal and not very dry these products might have been a little heavy for my hair. I can tell that they are quality products though and my favorite by far is the Verde Serum in the fresh scent.
Honestly speaking…. your products are wonderful!
Let me be more specific….
Verde Serum Oil: LOVE THE FRAGRANCE!! I have been using KeraCare’s essential oils for the past 5-6 years. The viscosity of your serum is a little lower than theirs, so it took some time for me to get used to applying it to our hair. It is a little “runnier” than what I am accustomed to, but nonetheless it is an AWESOME product! I tried it on my daughter’s hair first. She has long, natural (no chemicals) hair and I loved how the oils infused with her hair. The product went right in, it didn’t look or feel greasy and the scent was amazing! I tie her hair down at night with a satin cap, and usually I have to re-oil her hair the next morning before school. Using your product, I didn’t to put more oils in her hair! It was great! It was probably another 2 or 3 days before I felt like I needed to add more serum. And a little went a looong way. For my hair – which is short, relaxed, and color treated (one day, I am going to go natural) – it also works really well. I use it every day, my hair dries out a little more than hers. It gives the hair a nice shine and soft feel. Did I mention the fragrance – LOVE IT! I will definitely be purchasing this product.
Shampoo Mask: This was a new experience for me…The one thing that stood out most about the shampoo was the fact that it didn’t foam. Foam is a sensory/psychological thing as you already know – I wasn’t sure if I was lathering well and getting the product distributed through the hair since there wasn’t any foam. HOWEVER, when I rinsed it, it was “squeaky clean” which I liked! My assumption is that this is a better shampoo than what I am currently using!
Moisturizer: Again, the fragrance was HEAVENLY! I didn’t want to rinse the conditioner out of our hair because it smelled so good. I thought the consistency was just like my other conditioners – the main difference being that this was made with natural ingredients. I was able to comb the hair fine, when it was wet. I applied the serum to our hair before drying and it left it feeling very soft and manageable. I added a dab more before styling and we were ready to go! I will be purchasing this one, too!
My gf bought your serum oil [Verde] for me to use on my locs. It’s a great product and it leaves my locs soft with lots of sheen and the scent is really nice, not too floral. I think the fragrance she got for me is “hymn” or “dragons blood” I can’t remember. All I know is that I like it!
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.
I have been in search of hair products that retain moisture in my daughter’s hair. Her hair is fine in texture but tightly coiled, because of this it was prone to regular breakage so we do not see a lot of growth.
I have been pleasantly pleased to find that the mask [Coco-Mint Shampoo Mask] really does work in retaining moisture in her hair. She is younger so I braid her hair after washing. I can actually comb through her hair a few days later without having to re-wet it to add moisture back in.
I absolutely love these products!!! The cost is worth the quality.
I was sort of skeptical when 1st trying out the products because I didn’t know if I was going to like it or not. I tried the Verde Oil 1st on my hair and I fell in love with the smell! I love the natural ingredients that are used too! I’m surprised that the oil is soo expensive! I guess your really paying for the great ingredients! I think it’s worth it though. My hair retained it’s shine and smelled great for days! The shampoo and conditioner smells really good! I love the ingredients as well. They make my hair feel healthier than the last time I washed my hair. It’s only been a week for me since I’ve first tried the shampoo & conditioner.
