Tara Smith Haircare

Every once in a while I will get the opportunity to review some fun beauty products on my blog, and there is certainly a criteria for the products that I am willing to try and share here on Homemade for Elle.  When I learned about a fantastic new line of haircare products from Tara Smith Haircare and had the opportunity to review it, I jumped at the chance!  

About Tara Smith

Tara Smith Logo

Tara is a third-generation stylist and her personal mantra is “Be kind, be beautiful, be healthy,” which is evident in her carefully crafted line.   Tara is a respected celebrity hairstylist who has had an impressive list of clients, including Demi Moore, Rosario Dawson, and Gerald Butler!  She used her experience working on movie sets to develop this line of haircare products that provides movie-star hair that is put to the test on each scene, every day of filming. Her products, which are vegan, are tested on film stars, not on animals.  

With her experience, Tara Smith developed a line of products that not only stand up to high scrutiny for performance, but they are good for you and the environment!  All of her products are toxin-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free and completely vegan.  They don’t contain any harsh chemicals, which is why they’re great for everyday use.  The line is formulated with Performance Botanical Technology, that allows the whole product line to be completely free from gluten, parabens, sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), glycol, phthalates, PEGS, artificial coloring, synthetic fragrances, and animal derivatives.  

Tara Smith Haircare products nourish and feed your hair from the root, to give you beautiful and brilliant hair.

FEed the root

Feed the Root Shampoo & Conditioner

Made with nourishing ingredients of Tea Tree Oil and Bamboo Extract, this shampoo and conditioner work together to provide volume, shine and strength. 

gorgeously glam shampoo

Gorgeously Gentle Shampoo & Conditioner 

Made with calming natural ingredients of Chamomile and Aloe Vera, this is a gentle hair cleaning regimen that cleanses, relieves scalp irritation, and still provides your hair with moisture and strength. 

shine on shampoo

Shine On Shampoo & Conditioner 

For dry, damaged and colored hair, the Olive Squalene in this shampoo and conditioner nourishes and repairs, helping to restore shine to hair that needs some TLC.  

This shampoo and conditioner set is my personal favorite! 

Working Tide

Working Curls Shampoo & Conditioner 

For hair that has natural curls, this shampoo and conditioner hydrates with Rosemary Extract to provide enhanced softness, tame texture, and add shine. 


Base Coat Serum 

This is Tara Smith’s key product to change the look and feel of your hair.  It is moisturizing, hydrating and creates an anti-frizz barrier to help your hair hold up inbetween shampoos.  It has been tried and proven to increase shine from 65%, and 100% of women questioned agreed that their hair had more shine.  This stuff works even in 80% humidity for up to 24 hours after application.  

I have to say, this stuff is amazing.  I normally blow dry my hair after I wash it, and it looks… let’s just say, frizzy and lots of stray hair sticking every which way.  After I dried my hair using the Shine On Shampoo & Conditioner, with the base coat serum, my hair looked almost presentable before I straighted it!  Gone was the frizz and it looked sleek and shiny.  This stuff is awesome. 

shining moment

Shining Moment Glosser

This is a finishing spray that boosts shine and fights free radicals.  This will help your hair show it’s true color and dimension. 

rock on hard gel

Rock On Hard Gel 

If you use styling gels, this is the way to go.  IT provides perfect control without making your hair stiff and flaky. 

thickening cream

Brilliant Thickening Cream 

This is a lightwegith cream that instantly lifts and adds definition to hair that needs a little more oomph.  It is lab tested and has proven to increase volume by 85% after first application.
