So happy it’s Saturday, only my favorite day of the week. I made it sound like I did regular
Saturday type fun activities today, but actually we spent most of the day re-organizing the house. This month we are all about home improvement. Pretty much the whole house got painted, I am changing up the decor a bit, and doing purges to get us all ready for back to school which is only a few weeks ahead. ( can’t believe that!)

In the midst of this craziness, and basically living in my sweats the past couple of days doing all this work around the house, I needed to feel like my girly self again 🙂 What better time than trying out the new haircare line (made up of 12 products I was thrilled to receive) from Tara Smith. I’ll share my thoughts, a Q & A with the creator of the brand along with a fab GIVEAWAY ( that you can enter just by commenting yayyyyy!!!) with you today. Believe me this is such a welcome escape from tidying up my garage which is next. 😉


Before I start telling you a bit about the products, and Tara Smith, could we just swoon over the insanely cute packaging? I LOVE the tropical bird theme, and the matching designs on the shampoo/conditioner sets. Even better, each bird pairing seem to symbolize the corresponding product in the bottles.

For instance the gentle shampoo & conditioner has The Grey Crowned Crane on it, and it’s feather story is “In need of a pick me up-delicate” just like delicate hair. I love attention to details, and think this is way too cute. Plus those bottles look great next to my bath tub. 🙂


Now that I’ve mentioned the beautiful design I can’t get over haha, we can chat about the other things I loved about Tara Smith Haircare:

  • The line consists of 12 products that are free of harsh chemicals. There are NO Gluten, Parabens, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Glycol, Phthalates, PEGS, Artificial coloring, Synthetic fragrance, Animal derivatives in any of the products.

IMG_9327Q & A with TARA SMITH

1. What’s one hairstyle you would suggest that you think would flatter a wide range of women?
With the summer season in full swing, beach waves are in and look great on everyone. To achieve this look, I use my Working Curls Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s packed with amazing ingredients such as Soy Protein and Organic Rosemary Extract to improve hair’s body while both strengthening and moisturizing. I then loosely curl the hair and shake out to create the perfect waves. As always, I finish off with Shining Moment Glosser for extra shine.

2. If you could only have one hair product, what would it be? Which hair product can’t you live without?
I truthfully could never live without the Base Coat Serum and once you try it, you won’t be able to either! This product is my secret weapon and magic in a bottle. It delivers unmatched control and shine and leaves hair frizz free for up to 24 hours. This amazing serum was proven to increase shine by 65%. Nothing on the market today compares!
3. What’s your personal favorite product of the Tara Smith line?
The Tara Smith Base Coat Serum! It’s all about the Base.

I definitely agree with Tara! The Base Coat Serum does wonders for the hair. I also used the “Working Curls” shampoo and conditioner. ( you can see above) I planned to style my hair curly, and loved how easy it was to style it into my signature waves/curls with my curling wand after I used this set.



Don’t the “styling products crew” look adorable? They work wonders too. My favorites are, as Tara Smith also mentioned in our Q&A, the base coat serum, and shining moment glosser that enhances shine. Who doesn’t love shine? I certainly do.

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    The Shampoo and Conditioner interests me the most. I love your hair girlie. It is so pretty! I love the long beachy waves hairstyle. 🙂

  • Cindy Aiton

    I would love to try the Working Curls shampoo and conditioner!


  • Cheryl

    I’d love to try the base coat serum, it sounds fantastic. For hairstyles, I’m all about beachy waves- it’s such a fun style for the summer but truthfully I wear it all year long. 🙂

  • Dana Truitt

    Feed the Roots sounds the best because I have very fine hair and it get’s oily super fast, and I have not a bit of body. My hair is straight as a pin which is why I wear the shag hair style. It is the best for all women because it adds body and a cute look without a ton of hair products. It’s a great natural look, that adds tons of body and bounce with the deep layers!!

  • Chelsea

    Base coat serum! I love when my hair has natural curls and just a ‘good hair day’ air dry and all, weather permitting.

  • coupontammy

    The Base Coat Serum sounds amazing! No frizzy hair especially in the summer would be such a blessing. Plus the Shine on shampoo and conditioner sounds fantastic also! The packaging is great and I love that it’s not full of a bunch of chemicals! Thank you for the chance!

  • Shelley Traylor

    Anything for my curls!

  • This line sounds awesome! I’d love to try the shampoo 🙂

  • Kim Pincombe-Cole
