John Masters Organics Hair Spray, Volumising Foam + Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturiser | Review


Finding natural hair styling products that perform equally as well as their conventional counterparts can be a tricky task. I love voluminous waves, and anything that can help give me longer lasting hold, added volume or texture is more than welcome. 

100% Non-toxic, Natural, and also using Certified Organic ingredients (where available), John Masters Organics has a good range of hair styling products, hair care and body care. It's a brand I'm surprised I haven't heard more about before now, because everything I have experienced from the line so far has been an utter delight. Truly, you needn't look any further for amazing, all-natural hair styling products!

I'm not one to gush, but I'm going to say it right now - I haven't found a better hairspray than the John Masters Organics Hair Spray. This spray amazed me at first use, and is comparable in performance (and also feel) to any 'regular' hairspray. 

I've also been using the John Masters Volumising Foam, and the Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturiser from Emporio Organico. I also received several samples of the John Masters shampoo, conditioners, body washes and body milks, and I'm going to talk a little more about those below. 

Alongside the online store, Emporio Organico has a flagship store and organic in Sydney (Crows Nest), so pop in if you're local or visiting the area! They also carry so much more than just natural beauty products, and also have a wide range of fermented foods, Paleo & GAPS-friendly products, eco-home products (cleaning, storage, cook wear and pretty much anything else you can imagine. 


John Masters Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturiser / Review

Packaged in a sleek amber glass jar, this hair texturiser has a slightly sticky, creamy feel and thick consistency. Designed to add shine, texture and soft, flexible hold, I only need a small amount of product. I've been using this by taking a small amount and spreading through my fingertips, then applying lightly to each section of hair, before heat styling. This cream also works well to smooth down any fly-aways, or shape unruly or wayward strands into place. 

I've also applied the Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturiser using the "scrunch" method - after heat-styling, I'll spread a small amount of product through my hands, then 'scrunch' the curls/waves, all over, adding more product if necessary. It would also work well to texturise and shape shorter styles. 

The Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine Hair Texturiser gives a soft hold and shine to waves and curls, and doesn't feel sticky once applied. It is also nicely moisturising, and helps to protect hair from damage during heat styling. Castor oil smoothes the hair cuticle, while glycerin softens the hair shaft and shea butter adds moisture.

Nearly all of the ingredients are Certified Organic, and you can find a full list of ingredients here.


John Masters Organics Hair Spray / Review

As I mentioned above, the John Masters Organics Hair Spray is hands-down, the best I've used. The hair spray has a very similar feel, finish and texture to a regular aerosol-based hair spray - without the nasty chemicals!

Six organic ingredients suffuse hair with beneficial nutrients while delivering an all-day hold with a light, citrus scent. This hair spray is suitable for all hair types, helps fight frizz and protects against humidity, perfect for styling curly or straight hair, great for daily use and safe for colour-treated hair

A light spray of the John Masters Organics Hair Spray is sufficient to provide lasting hold to waves and curls, and won't weigh down your style or leave it looking product-heavy. I've been using this spray by lightly spraying after setting with hot rollers, and then a light spray on each layer as the rollers are removed, and also a final spray after styling. If I'm using a curling iron, I just spray sections as I go after curling.

The Hair Spray has a really firm hold, but it doesn't leave my hair stiff or knotty, and it works really well with just a small amount. After spraying, I can still gently comb or brush through sections if I need to, so it isn't going to turn you into a lacquer-head.

When a hair spray holds up in the tropical North Queensland Summer heat and humidity, I think you have a winner.

As mentioned above, the Hair Spray uses just seven ingredients, 6 of which are Certified Organic. You can find the full list of ingredients here.


John Masters Organics Volumising Foam / Review

Used alone or paired with the other two products, the John Masters Volumising Foam is an incredibly lightweight foam/mousse, that easily spreads through damp hair and helps to create weightless volume. I find some products can leave even freshly-washed hair looking gunky or greasy, but none of these products have that issue. 

I've again only been using a small amount of product for good (lasting) volume. I apply the John Masters Volumising Foam to the roots of damp hair, and then blow-dry. This product is also easily brushable, and doesn't leave my hair feeling stiff or prone to frizz. 

The pump makes it easy to dispense and disperse. My favourite way to use this product is on freshly washed hair, and blow-waved and styled into bouncy, voluminous waves! A light spray with the Hair Spray, and I'm good to go. 

The Volumising Foam is 100% non-toxic and natural, with 7 Certified Organic ingredients. Find the full ingredients here.

John Masters Organics Shampoo, Body Wash & Body Milk / (my thoughts)

This isn't going to be a full review, as I've only trialled sample sizes of these products, but I'm also really impressed with everything I've tried.

John Masters Organics Spearmint and Meadowsweet Scalp Stimulating Shampoo
This shampoo was so lovely and refreshing to use, as the Spearmint scent enveloped me whilst I massaged my scalp. The scent doesn't really linger in the hair, however, so you don't need to worry about scents clashing with other products. My hair felt so silky and soft after use, but thoroughly clean!
This shampoo was really moisturising for my hair, and again left it feeling silky. This was probably a little heavy for my hair, but it's intended for dry, damaged hair, and or a once-per-week alternative/treatment. My dry ends did feel smoother and softer afterwards, however.
I wasn't sure how it would go for my hair as I don't use a conditioner (it's usually too heavy), but this was probably my favourite so far. It's left my hair feeling perfectly balanced (smooth, soft, silky and clean, but fresh even to the roots!) My hair feels SO good after using this!

John Masters Organics - Geranium and Grapefruit Body Wash
The body washes are an absolute treat to use, they smell amazing and leave my skin feeling soft and moisturised. They also work well to provide a barrier for the skin whilst shaving.

John Masters Organics - Geranium and Grapefruit Body Milk
I'm really loving the Body Milks and am planning to purchase some as a regular moisturiser. They are lightweight, creamy, smell delicious and absorb quickly without leaving any greasy residue.

John Masters Organics - Blood Orange and Vanilla Body Milk
When I used this I kept being told I smelled delicious and like Creaming Soda - I felt pretty delicious, too! The Body Milks work well for anywhere on the body - hands, arms, legs, dry elbows or knees - and leave my skin smooth, soft and hydrated.



Overall (+ a discount)

I really don't think you can go past this line if you're on the hunt for amazing hair care and styling products. The Hair Spray is absolutely a new favourite, as is the Volumising Foam and the Hair Texturiser. 

You can shop John Masters Organics at Emporio Organico in Australia, and code WBM10 will save you 10% off your order for a limited time.
