Taya is a haircare line with a deep commitment to environmental sustainability, and their products are formulated without parabens, sulfates and animal products. Taya is a cruelty-free line that sources indigenous botanical Rainforest ingredients through environmentally sustainable programs, which are free of toxic ingredients. agrochemical agents, and genetically modified ingredients. Furthermore, Taya ensures that the "local communities directly benefit from their harvests and conservation efforts."

Taya's products promise to add body to fine, thin or lifeless hair, and while my naturally curly hair isn't particularly fine, and definitely isn't thin or lifeless– I was interested in seeing how the line would add thickness, richness and body to my tresses.

1) Amazon White Clay & Acacia Collagen Hair PlumperAdds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. An innovative, fast-drying mousse and hairspray, all-in-one formula, that allows you to instantly and effortlessly add fullness and plumpness to your style, creating volume, lift, dimension, and texture. Formulated with Amazon White Clay and Acacia Collagen, this unique recipe maximizes your hair’s body and substance, creating denser, fatter looking hair as it hydrates each strand. Encourages thicker, more abundant, luscious, plumping looking hair, and helps infuse every strand with rich moisture, shine and a long lasting flexible hold that helps create natural, movable, bouncy, healthy looking styles.

This is a wonderfully innovative fast drying mousse and hairspray in one that instantly delivers thickness and volume as well as flexible hold. Hair looks and feels natural and movable, but does not appear to be heavily product-laden. Furthermore, hair is left hydrated and shiny.

$24.00 for 8 oz. from Taya and Amazon.
2) Amazon White Clay Thickening Whipped Clay: Adds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. Amazon White Clay, Whipped Thickening Clay is formulated with Amazon Clay, extracts of Croton Lechleri resin and raw avocado oil, which help to expand, enrich, and add fullness, body, bounce, and control to fine, thin, or weakened hair. This highly concentrated, whipped, fluffy formula creates fullness, texture and density while helping control your style, creating a full and texturized look. Perfect for fine, thin, lifeless or brittle hair in need of body and texture.

How to use: "Depending on hair length, spray a small amount of this whipped, fluffy, rich formula into hand. Rub hands together, apply evenly to hair, and texture and style as desired. For best results, use with Taya Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner."

This is a light and fluffy mousse that is ultra concentrated. I use only a small amount to achieve control over my hair, but my hair isn't left crunchy or unnatural looking.

$24.00 for 6 oz. from Taya.
3) Amazon White Clay Thickening Hair Spray: Adds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. Amazon White Clay Thickening Hair Spray is a medium hold, thickening finishing spray, formulated with Amazon White Clay, extracts of Croton Lechleri Resin and Raw Avocado Oil that provides a long lasting, strong, yet flexible hold, that helps create natural, movable, healthy looking styles, while helping to expand, enrich and infuse body and fullness to every hair strand. Perfect for fine, thin, lifeless or brittle hair in need of body.

I don't often use hairspray, but on the rare occasions that I it absolutely imperative that it offers flexible hold. If I can't run my fingers through my hair, then I won't use it because I don't like the feeling of immovable hair cemented into place. This thickening hair spray offers strong hold, but it is flexible enough that I can still run my fingers through my hair. I only need to use the smallest amount to achieve big results.

$24.00 for 8 oz. from TayaBeauty.com and Amazon.
4) Amazon White Clay Thickening Hair Spray (Non-aerosol): Adds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. Amazon White Clay Thickening Hair Spray is a medium hold, thickening finishing spray, formulated with Amazon White Clay, extracts of Croton Lechleri Resin and Raw Avocado Oil that provides a long lasting, strong, yet flexible hold, that helps create natural, movable, healthy looking styles, while helping to expand, enrich and infuse body and fullness to every hair strand. Perfect for fine, thin, lifeless or brittle hair in need of body.

I like this non-aerosol version of their Thickening Hair Spray, and find that it works just as well as their aerosol version, but with the convenience of a see-through non-aerosol bottle. It offers flexible hold, and is concentrated– therefore I only need to use the smallest amount to achieve my desired results.

$24.00 for 8 oz. from Taya.
5) Amazon White Clay Thickening Leave-In Mist: Adds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. Amazon White Clay Thickening Leave-In Mist is a medium hold, thickening finishing spray, formulated with Amazon White Clay, extracts of Croton Lechleri Resin and Raw Avocado Oil that provides a long lasting, strong, yet flexible hold, that helps create natural, movable, healthy looking styles, while helping to expand, enrich and infuse body and fullness to every hair strand. Perfect for fine, thin, lifeless or brittle hair in need of body.

This Leave-In Mist is not a leave-in conditioner that should be applied liberally, but is instead a finishing spray that offers strong and flexible hold. You only need to use the smallest amount for big results.

$22.00 for 6 oz. from Taya and Beauty.com.
6) Amazon White Clay Thickening Styling Crème: Adds body, richness and thickness to fine, thin, lifeless hair. Amazon White Clay Thickening Styling Creme is formulated with Amazon White Clay, extracts of Croton Lechleri Resin and Raw Avocado Oil, which help to expand, enrich, and add fullness, body, bounce, and control to fine, thin, or weakened hair. This light-weight formula creates texture and density while helping control your style and smoothing down fly-aways, creating a glossy, finished look. Perfect for fine, thin, lifeless or brittle hair in need of body.

I absolutely love this styling cream! It is a lightweight and moisturizing styling cream that adds body and bounce to hair without making it feel crunchy. It tames frizzes and fly-aways, and leaves hair glossy and polished looking. 

$22.00 for 6 oz. from Taya, Beauty.com and Amazon.

  3. Thank you for this review. I have been researching this brand. Do you know if there is a full ingredient list anywhere? Also, is the plumper scented? Thank you!

    1. Hi Natalie! You are so welcome! I will have to photograph the ingredients on the back of each bottle this weekend and then I will add them to this post. All of their products have a scent, but it is rather hard to describe. I don't find that it is too strong, but if you prefer no scent at all, then you may not want to try them. That said, they are really lovely products!

    1. You are very welcome, Natalie! I'm sorry that some of the ingredients are a little hard to read as they bend around the containers. They weren't sent in a box, and they don't list them on their website. There is some scent, and while it is nice– if you prefer no scent at all then you may not like these. However, the products themselves are quite nice! Let me know if you have any further questions! :-)

  5. Thank you again! You rock. :) It does look like the fragrance ingredient is high on the list so it might be an expensive mistake, darn it! They do seem like nice products, and while this brand is not all natural, I like that they don't have parabens and sulfates.

    1. Absolutely my pleasure, Natalie! I think that it's best to go with your instincts because it would be a waste of money if you got it and felt that the fragrance was too much for you, or bothered you.I will keep an eye out for fragrance free styling products of high quality, and will let you know if I find anything! Are there specific products that you are looking for? The line definitely is not all natural, but it is nice that it doesn't contain parabens or sulfates. Have you gone to your local health food store or something like Whole Foods to see if they have anything that fits the bill? :-)

  6. Hi Lola! What I have been searching for is a volumizing mousse, or lightweight volumizing texturizer. I have checked Whole Foods and other stores that carry more natural stuff online and I can find unscented shampoo, conditioner and other products, but all the volumizers I can find have fragrance. I do have one I use that has a lower amount of fragrance and is more natural, but I still hate the fragrance in it and it doesn't work as well as others have for me. (This one is Peter Lamas.) Giovanni brand has great ingredients and it said "citrus" which is one scent I can usually handle, and it had an overpowering perfume scent. I think I'll be trying Kiss My Face next. Thank you for keeping an eye out!!!

    1. Hi Natalie! I will definitely keep my eyes open for you! I have a tendency to sniff before I buy when it comes to hair are products because the scent has to be tolerable, if not pleasant, since scent just seems to linger in the hair.

      I was going to suggest Giovanni, but I couldn't remember what their products smelled like. You would think that it would be easy to find a fragrance free line of haircare products, but not so. I love Kiss My Face products, but don't recall trying anything from their haircare line. Their Hold Up Styling Mousse looks good, and certainly contains lots of good ingredients, but while it is free of artificial fragrances it does not indicate that it is unscented altogether. It certainly looks worth investigating further!

      I will take a slow stroll down the Whole Body Aisles on my next trip to Whole Foods and will let you know if anything stands out! :-)

  7. Yes scent does linger! Giovanni is good stuff, just way too strong smelling for me. This Kiss My Face product looks like a really strong contender! Definitely will be giving it a shot. :) Thanks for your help!

    1. Especially in hair! It doesn't matter how amazing a product is, if you find yourself overpowered by the scent! It's a shame that Giovanni doesn't have a scent free line! You would definitely think that the more natural lines would do this for their customers. Kiss My Face looks like a contender, but I think that you will have to sniff it first! My pleasure!
