BACK TO THE ROOTS IN HAIR CARE

“With a passion for organic and natural living, and a career spanning over 20 years in the hairdressing industry, it became my wish to fuse these two life-paths and create hair care that combines the natural botanical medical wisdom of our ancestors with sustainable modern scientific practice to create 100% naturally-derived, ethical haircare for today. Formulated using certified organic and natural ingredients, HÆR Care products are cruelty-free, vegan, and GMO-free.”

Rámon Taitz, Founder of HÆR

WHERE THE JOURNEY BEGAN

HÆR founder and haircare specialist Rámon Taitz was driven to natural hair care when he became frustrated at the lack of truly natural, high-quality products available today.

Whilst working with many products, particularly hair oils, Rámon always found them to be made with either artificial silicones and petroleum-based serums, or formulated with very basic plant oils that were often too oily. Rámon always found it difficult to use a styling and treatment oil that was of complete natural botanical origin, that offered all the benefits you’d want from an oil without the oily residue.

Nobody wants heavy, oily hair! So, armed with 20 years’ experience in the hairdressing industry and a long standing love for organic and natural living, Rámon set out to create the first in the HÆR Care family, a nourishing treatment oil, exquisitely blended with 18 of the most effective, 100% natural botanical origin ingredients, that would deliver great results without leaving an oily residue.

DISCOVER WHAT THE ANCIENTS KNEW

In creating HÆR, Rámon responded to a natural calling that led him on to look to the past, where the ancients created many remedies and preparations for the Health of Hair.

Upon discovering what the ancients knew, Rámon was guided upon a journey of incredible discovery that traversed 5 years in research at various libraries and societies the world over.

Upon his research, Rámon was introduced to many compelling and intriguing remedies once written for the Health of Hair, and it is within these pages of ancient texts where Rámon discovered SUSINUM. An ancient Egyptian remedy once worshipped for its exquisite and seductive scent, and revered as a healing and restorative remedy for the Health of Hair.

Instinctively Rámon knew SUSINUM would be the first in the new HÆR Care line up.

Taking the original recipe into the laboratory, Rámon worked with acclaimed perfumers and chemists, researching and reformulating the ancient recipe, combining ancient natural botanical medical wisdom with sustainable modern scientific practices, and after 5 years in the making the much anticipated SUSINUM Luxuriant Hair Oil was born.
