The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo & Volume Conditioner

Hi Guys,
Today I am reviewing a shampoo and conditioner from The Body Shop Rainforest range. It is the Rainforest Balance Shampoo for Oily Hair and Rainforest Volume Conditioner for Fine Hair. I have color treated really fine hair and oily scalp so finding a shampoo + conditioner that cater to what my hair needs is a real task. Basically I look at volume and getting rid of oiliness. I have used lots of brands and only a few have made it to my repurchase list. I love Loreal’s EverPure Color Care Volume shampoo and conditioner and have repurchased it many times over. Since I keep switching up my shampoo and conditioner every 3 – 4 months, I decided to try the rainforest range this time around. Now many of you would think why I didn’t go for the Balance shampoo & conditioner or the Volume shampoo and conditioner. If you have multiple hair concerns, your conditioner should be the one focusing on the main problem area. In my case I struggle with limp hair, so volume is absolutely crucial and I picked up the volume conditioner whereas the balance shampoo takes care of the oily scalp.

What I think

Rainforest Balance Shampoo for Oily Hair

The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo for Oily Hair comes in a semi transparent plastic bottle with flip open cap. The cap shuts tight making it leak proof and travel friendly. TBS also has a travel sized version of this bottles retailing for $5. The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo for Oily Hair has a runny texture without being watery that spreads easily onto the scalp and hair. The shampoo is transparent and smells really great. Since the product is free of SLS, it doesn’t lather much. But oh boy! This stuff is too potent for my fine hair. It effectively cleans the scalp getting rid of any oiliness but unfortunately dries my hair out making it frizzy. I have tried modifying the amount I use but it just doesn’t seem to work that well. If you are someone with normal to thick hair type with oily scalp issues, this should work for you. But for those with thin, fine hair this shampoo might pose to be intense drying out your hair.

Rainforest Volume Conditioner for Fine Hair

The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Conditioner for Fine Hair comes in a semi transparent plastic bottle with flip open cap. The cap shuts tight making it leak proof and travel friendly. TBS also has a travel sized version of this bottles retailing for $5. The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Conditioner for Fine Hair has a thick cream consistency that works will with water as suggested. It spreads well onto the hair from the root to the tip. This conditioner doesn’t settle into the scalp creating any residue. I love conditioners that can work from the hair roots or those that can be worked into the scalp. Unlike some conditioners that need bucket loads of water to be cleaned up from the hair, this conditioner works like a breeze. It doesn’t get stuck on the hair is easy to wash away. Just like the shampoo, this conditioner smells great as well. Now this conditioner is has my name written all over it. It adds ample volume to the hair and gives it a fuller healthy looking vibe. It adds softness and the hair looks so much smoother. Overall I am totally sold on this conditioner and will definitely repurchase it. I have been using this with the Loreal Paris EverStrong Thickening Shampoo and it’s been working great.

Recommendation

If you are looking to add volume to your hair, The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Conditioner for Fine Hair is a great choice. If Volume is your only concern then the shampoo from the same range is perfect combination. For those with normal to thick hair, The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo for Oily Hair might work but definitely not for those with fine, thin hair type.
