How This Works


As much as possible, we test the styling tools, hair dyes, creams. The reason why we do this is to create reviews that are not only honest but completely fair to the product we’re reviewing.

There are too many other websites out there that base the reviews they provide on a glance at the product they’re talking about.

At Hair Kempt, we do things differently. We aren’t basing the reviews we create on a glance. Instead, we’re trying out every single aspect of a product to see what’s good about the item.

Are you reading a review on a hair crimper? We’ve tested the hair crimper out on wet hair, dry hair, long hair, short hair, healthy hair, and damaged hair. Plus, we’ve tested out how the hair crimper performs on strands of hair that don’t contain any product and strands of hair that are loaded up with product.

In addition, we’ll also analyze how safe the hair crimper is. Will you burn your hair while using it? Will it melt any plastic surface you lay it down while you are walking away from the crimper? Is it travel-friendly?

No matter what questions or concerns you have about the items we’re reviewing, we’re here to answer those questions.

We’ve tested our products to their full capabilities to tell their limits, what they’re good for, and what you can expect when using them. That’s what we’re all about here at Hair Kempt. We live and breathe hair.

No matter what article you’re reading, whether it be a roundup, a review, or a comparison, this is how we take the approach to every single piece of content we’re created. We want you, our reader, to be well-informed on everything you do.

That way, you can ensure that your next hair styling adventure is the absolute best that it can be. So, we’re here to ensure you’re only spending your money on high-quality products that are worth every single penny.

Do you want to know a little bit more about our review process? Depending on the type of hair product we’re reviewing, we have a different approach to processing. But, here’s how we generally approach each review we write:

  • A hair care product, dye, or tool grabs our attention. Sometimes products are suggested to us, and we’ll purchase the item for review. Please be aware that we don’t ever accept items for free or for an extreme discount provided by the manufacturer. This ensures that we keep all of our reviews completely fair and unbiased.
  • Depending on the type of product we’re reviewing, we ensure that we test it out for an appropriate length of time. For example, we’ll hold off on writing a review about a hairspray until we’ve had the chance to test it in the rain and the humidity.
  • While we’re testing out the item, a daily log will be kept and maintained. In this log, the person reviewing the product in question will jot down all of their personal experiences and opinions while following along with predetermined variables.
  • The person who does all of the research and testing on the product is the same person who will write the article. If the writer needs any help, they’ll receive support from our editorial team. However, the person who tested out the product will provide all of their data, opinions, and experiences inside the article.
  • If there are any questions from our Hair Kempt community, we’ll be sure to update the article later.

Lastly, we want to say one big thing: we adore you! We know how important your hair is to you, and that’s why we’re passionate about helping you achieve your dream hairstyle. No matter what life throws your way, you’re always willing to take another step and face risk by whatever hairdos make you feel confident and you. We’re so grateful you’re here with us at Hair Kempt on your journey to self-discovery.

Why am I giving advice here on Hair Kempt?

I started writing about hair care and hair products because it is what I do. My day job is spent in the salon and I’ve helped hundreds of people find their best hair days. I’ve had so many clients come to me after ‘doing things on their own’ and I love to help. There are so many amazing hair color and hair care products out there, but where do you start, and most importantly what is best for you? That’s what I’m here to help you decide. Think of me as your personal haircare consultation in every article that I write.

Karyl Trejo, Hair Care Perfectionist

Ever since she realized she could change her whole appearance with something as simple as a new haircut or fresh color, Karyl has been expressing herself through her tresses for over a decade now. From flirty blonde hair to gothy black hair — and everything in between — don’t be surprised if she looks completely different the next time you see her. These days, you can find her eagerly discussing the benefits of root smudges and bleach baths with her friends, in between researching new shampoos and conditioners to keep her (now red!) locks shiny and healthy.

Why am I giving advice here on Hair Kempt?

I followed the CG protocol for a while, so I was no-poo (co-wash) and silicone-free for the longest time and actually know quite a bit about the science behind it.  I’m back on the silicone train for now, but only until I find my new HG.
I also swore off box dyes years ago and went from an awful box red to a natural ashy blonde, so I learned a lot about the process while doing so.  So I know pretty much everything about developers, toners, soap caps, and gently processing hair.  Of course, quarantine did a number on me (didn’t we all get awful Covid hairdos, though?), so I’m back to red now.
In fact, last night I was trying to explain to my husband what I did with my hair and he was mostly lost but did appreciate the end results.  I started with a crushed vitamin c mask to remove the old dye, then mixed a 5rc with a volume 20 on my ends (needed a little bit of lift), then combined a 7a with a 5r in a volume 10 to create a natural-looking root smudge. 🙂

Stephanie Jensen

Stephanie Jensen is a beauty and hair fanatic. Back in her college days, she worked at Sephora. The majority of her time working at Sephora was spent helping customers find the best hair care products for their needs. Her haircare supplies collection has grown so large, she’s run out of space to store it all at her house. She now keeps some of her collection at her boyfriend’s house too.

For Hair Kempt, Stephanie works to review various hair care products. Sometimes, she even offers tutorials. When she isn’t writing for Hair Kempt, she likes shopping around at Sephora, watching beauty tutorials on YouTube, or practicing her skincare routine.

She’s here to help others have the best hair days of their lives and find products and styles that express who they really want to be.

Annalise Swain


At 12 years old, Annalise grew very fond of hair. She always admired other women that had their hair styled every day. Before she started learning how to do her own hair, she usually left it down or threw it up in a ponytail to get it out of her face. She had long locks of blonde hair that she never wanted to dye or cut. Although when watching how-to’s, she wanted to dye her hair all of the colors she could. Between learning different heat and braided styles, her hair became her life.

The wonderful thing about hair is you can style it to show off your personality. Whether you want a buzz cut or long locks, natural color or something fun, there’s so many different styles you can choose from. One thing to know about learning how to do your hair is patience. There will be days your hair won’t cooperate so you will have to figure out something different to do. You also have to learn your hair type, if you do this you’ll understand what your hair can and cannot tolerate.
