The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner

I think I'm officially obsessed with The Body Shop. Since my first haul with them I have been dying to go back and get more of they're products! They are always having really good deals too so it's been hard to wait until I have used up these to go back for more.

This is the Banana Shampoo and Conditioner from their hair care line and I must say I am pretty pleased with these. They smell awesome I wouldn't say really like banana but more of a tropical island fruit scent. Either way it is quite dreamy! The scent last's for a little while but I wish it would last longer once I put in all my styling products you can't really smell it so that could be good or bad depending on how you like it.



Banana Shampoo
This cleans hair really effectively I would compare it best with a clarifying shampoo. After using this my hair feels "squeaky" clean and I mean that because it is a bit hard to get thru after rinsing. Even tho it makes it a bit hard to get through in the shower I love this stuff it has done wonders to make my hair look shiny. A quarter size amount is enough to do my whole head mind you I have pretty long hair. This product has a nice lather to it too the suds are super soft.


Banana Conditioner
This conditioner will work great on any hair type I think but if your hair is a bit dry you may want to mix in a bit of deep moisture conditioner as well. When I used this alone it gave my hair okay moisture but I found that if I mix it with a little bit of my Phyto deep conditioning mask I get even better results. Since the Phyto doesn't really smell like anything this makes up for it's lack of scent (I'll be doing a review of the Phyto hair mask in my Glossybox Follow Up soon.)

After using these my hair is shiny and soft! I really like that these get rid of any product I had left over in my hair from prior days styling and my hair never feels greasy because of them.

I am also really liking that The Body Shop is a company with a very high standards when it comes to their ingredients and animal testing but also when it comes to giving back. I think they deserve a pat on the back for that.

These products retail for $8.00 for 8.4 fl oz so you get a good size for the price. Currently this is the only size they come in. You can find this product on their website of in The Body Shop stores and sometimes at stores like Sephora and Ulta.

Have you tried any hair care products from The Body Shop, whats your favorite?

  10. I thought for a long time that this store was quite pricey, but with constant sales, it's really not that bad.

    Banana sounds delicious... Though I'm not sure the cleansing shampoo is right for me.

    1. I'm not sure as I don't have hard water, but it couldn't hurt to give it a try. Just keep an eye out for a good sale and you'll more than get your money back for it.
