About Hairy Jayne
Hairy Jayne isn’t actually hairy! (Although she does have very thick hair).
Hairy Jayne is a former hairdresser who makes plastic free hair care products that help women take better care of their dry hair – with a choice of divine fragrances. The zero waste products are made from the best moisturising ingredients available. Naturally derived, vegan ingredients that cause the least harm to us on our skin, and the least harm to our world when they end up down the plug. Sulfates and parabens are out, and plant oils and fragrant essential oils are definitely in. The sustainable packaging is either plastic-free or refillable. All of the products have been registered with the Vegan Society and are 100% cruelty free. We make everything by hand on site here in Bristol, UK.
Once upon a time, years ago, Jayne was a graphic designer. Having spent a large chunk of her childhood colouring-in, she found herself in the world of advertising, and soon she realised it wasn’t where she wanted to be. Following in the footsteps of her grandmother, she started to re-train as a hairdresser. For many years she worked at award winning hair salons in London. Over the years, Jayne has chatted with many women about their hair and how they care for it. She listens to the problems they have, and about the funny relationship they have with the stuff that grows out of their heads.
On holiday once in Morocco, she bought some argan oil and began to experiment with it, mixing it with essential oils and using it to nourish her dry hair. These little experiments sparked a curiosity that led her to taking some courses in natural product making. And then came the light-bulb moment. She could make her own natural hair care products! And so the obsession began…
Having listened to all those women talking about their hair, the biggest problem seemed to be that it felt dry. The Hairy Jayne range is very simple and very moisturising. There’s sulfate free shampoo and conditioners of varying strengths. A tonic oil for the scalp to keep it healthy and nourished. And hair perfume in three delicious fragrances plus a dry shampoo powder for those days when washing your hair just isn’t going to happen, and it needs freshening up.
Jayne listened to her customers when they began asking if they could return the old plastic bottles to be refilled, and embarked on a mission to provide plastic free and refillable hair care. Hairy Jayne now has both liquid and solid zero waste shampoos and conditioners to choose from.
Please feel free to ask Jayne at any time for hair care advice, she’s happy to help!
