UK naturals, we have a NEW natural haircare brand we can all run out and buy! DO NOT CONTAIN YOUR EXCITEMENT, because I have not been able to. Trepadora, a British natural haircare brand was launched last month (December 2015), by Keisha Lawler. For some European naturals that name may already be familiar as Keisha is also the founder of Britiah Curlies (The Curly Emporium). British Curlies was the first platform in the UK to provide the majority of your favourite international natural haircare brands. She paved the way for so many, who are now able to offer a wide selection of haircare items for curly girls. It’s not very often I can truly commend a home grown British natural haircare brand for thinking about ALL aspects of their brand. Trepador is certainly a product that would not look out of place in a retail highstreet store like Boots & Superdrug.
Keisha shared with us that is took her over two years to bring the brand to market. “Natural ingredients simply were not enough for Trepadora…That’s why Trepadora became the world’s first oxygen-protected haircare system for curly girls”. What exactly is oxygen protection? As you may or may not know, oxygen speeds up the degradation of natural ingredients. Special airtight packaging has been implemented by Trepadora to keep the nutritional value in the products for longer (Our understanding). You can read more about oxygen-protection and its benefits over on the Trepadora website. The Trepadra Curl Therapy Line is also free from; Silicones, Sulphates, Mineral oil, Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances and Artificial colours.

All in all, it is fantastic to have another curly girl friendly brand born out of the UK. This launch specifically, is a welcomed change from the kitchen beautician feel of products that we have primarily been offered in the UK. We hope to see more follow suit as WE NEED MORE VARIETY and products of quality.
