We all have our staple products when it comes to shampoo and conditioner but with all the products out in the market , it is difficult to find what works best for us . I recently decided it was time to take care of my hair so i visited my hairstylist for a cut and hair consultation . She mentioned that the cause of my unruly , course and dry hair were the products I was using . Especially the products that are high in ” Sulfate “. Sulfate , is an ingredient in almost all shampoos unless stated . Sulfate strips the natural oils from your hair , damages follicles, fades color treated hair, and could lead to hair loss. i shopped around ULTA for an “organic” shampoo then found myself worried about the prices of “healthy” shampoos. Also, I found myself overwhelmed by all the choices available. In the end , i was unsuccessful . i made a trip to The Body Shop and picked up their Banana Shampoo & Conditioner these products promises to clean hair and leave a healthy shiny finish. The product retails for $8 and is available online through the The Body Shop. However they are known for having great sales so the cost could be less. My hair is about mid length and fairly thick so I would normally run out of the shampoo first before the conditioner and these 250ml bottles would normally last me 4-6 weeks washing my hair every 2 days. After the first use , i did not like the minimal amount of lather throughout my hair. However, products that are sulfate-free tend to not lather. For those who are accustomed to the the lather and squeaky clean aftermath of shampoos, it might take awhile to commit to these products. Both shampoo and conditioner have honey and banana puree so when first applied to the hair it really does smell like bananas, but the scent does not stay on the hair. Overall i give these products 2 thumbs up. I get numerous compliments. I’ve never seen my hair be so silky , shiny and smooth. Also, my hair appears to have grown more rapidly during my 2 months of use.
