A NOTE FROM TAMAR:
Before September 2011, there was no shortage of harsh chemicals, preservatives, parabens, etc that I would coat my hair and skin with. The food I ate was also no exception before I decided to try to eat organically grown produce and hormone-free meats. After reading "The Green Beauty Guide: Your Essential Resource to Organic and Natural Skin Care, Hair Care, Makeup, and Fragrances" by Julie Gabriel, I was inspired to clean up my daily beauty routine and diet.
I also started gardening more and took up an herbal apprenticeship course to better serve my internal and external natural routine. Don't get me wrong though - I still enjoy the occasional In-n-Out burger and it is still hard to part with my favorite shade of MAC lipstick.
In addition to the actual products, TamThyme is many things. It is a lifestyle blog exploring the natural and organic processes to maintain our hair, bodies, and spirits. I document my journey through this blog and informational site to serve as inspiration for others and hopefully to foster a community of exchange in some of these experimental endeavors. I celebrate the diversity of hair types, textures, and styles.
I also have a deep love for plants and herbs and how they can naturally enliven our daily life routines, including body and hair care.
An entrepreneur at heart, I am involved in many things. I addition to running TAM thyme, I am also currently working in real estate and rehab financing. When I have time to breathe, I am usually just holding my breathe again doing Masters Synchronized Swimming. Any time after that is spent decompressing in my garden or over my sewing machine.
