It was a great surprise to open up the box that Original Sprout sent to me, and find four of their hair and skincare products to try for review. Original Sprouts was founded by Inga Tritt, a Mother and Master Stylist. You’ll learn more about Inga, in the interview that follows this review.
Original Sprout Products Are:
100% cruelty free, vegan, free of phytoestrogens, soy, parabens, gluten, dixoanes from sulfates, phthalates and formaldehyde.
Original Sprout Products
Here are four products from the Original Sprout line that were sent to me:
Original Sprout Natural Shampoo
This is formulated for use on babies, children and adults. is volumizing and conditioning at the same time. It’s a two-in-one shampoo. After you shampoo the hair, this product creates volume at the roots of the hair and then leaves hair with a really nice shine and very silky feeling hair.
Original Sprout Miracle Detangler
The Original Sprout Miracle Detangler is formulated for use on babies, children and adults. This was one quick and easy product that worked. It’s for all hair types and textures. Simply spritz it on hair, comb it through, and hair is detangled. You don’t have to “wait” for the Detangler to work!
Original Sprout Face & Body Sunscreen SPF24+
Face & Body Sunscreen SPF24+ is family friendly; it is great for sensitive, dry, or acne prone skin. It is advertised as “non greasy,” and it is! It’s a natural sunscreen that Inga, the founder, will tell me about later in this post. It also did not leave a white cast.
The final product that I tested, although there are many more products in Original Sprout’s line, is:
Original Sprout Tahitian Hair Oil
After combing hair, pump out a little bit into the palm of your hand. Smooth in on to the hair. Result? My hair was soft, smelled wonderful, and was shiny!

What prompted you to start your own company?
As a stylist with professional experience & a mother with real life experience led me to creating Original Sprout professional, family-friendly products!
Please tell me and my readers about the name of your Company, Original Sprout. How did you come up with that?
I had a dream when my daughter, Maya, was 6 months old, and wrote down the name, “The Original Little Sprout.” When I woke up the next morning, I realized we had the perfect name. To “sprout” means “to grow,” both hair and in business.
How does Original Sprout define the difference between natural and organic ingredients?
We define “natural ingredients” as ingredients derived from natural sources, such as palm, coconut, beets, sunflowers, and so on. We use organic extracts due to their soothing and calming properties, such as organic arnica, organic calendula, and organic cranberry. All are excellent in that they work and are guilt-free.
What was the first product that your company started with?
Our first product was our Baby Hair Gel. There was no such product in the market place at the time. Then we created the Natural Hair Balm and Hair & Body Babywash.
You have a Face & Body Sunscreen product that I sampled and loved. Not greasy at all, and it’s a natural sunscreen. What is a natural sunscreen?
A Natural Sunscreen is usually composed of mineral derived ingredients, such as Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. The problem with Titanium Dioxide is that it can be greasy and contain nanoparticles. We use Zinc Oxide that is free of nanoparticles and is non-greasy. It also helps clear acne, baby rashes, and is commonly used in baby diaper ointments, due to its soothing qualities.
How did you decide to add sunscreen to your product line?
Every product I used either made me breakout or felt thick and greasy. I needed a double-duty sunscreen that kept my skin clear, firm and that I could use everyday under my eye makeup. I’ve never gotten so many compliments on my skin in all my life, and I’m 44. I owe it all to the SPF.
I loved that there was no white cast left after application. How does Original Sprout do that and use only natural and organic ingredients?
We use a coconut base that cuts the white effect and leaves skin luminous, never shiny. Just soft, clean and clear.
Your website has a list of baby names. How did that come about?
That was recommended to us by our website creators in the beginning to help SEO numbers. It helps bring more visitors to our site.
What do you think is the key to health?
I believe the key to health is staying in a calm state, that includes using products that help sooth and prevent inflammation. I believe, personally inflammation is one of the leading causes of disease. That’s why all of our products contain ingredients associated with anti-inflammation. Not only do I feel younger now than I ever have, I feel more energetic, happier, and focused! We eat organic foods, drink fresh fruit juices and smoothies…we live a healthy lifestyle. I literally couldn’t be without my products because I want the best for my family and myself. We’re worth it 🙂
Thank you so much for this opportunity. We love your site!
I really want to thank you, Inga! I appreciate the interview, and I love Original Sprout products!
