The Body Shop recently revamped it’s hair care range – with the new Rainforest range that promise to be not only good to your hair but also to the environment. It’s a bit embarrassing and extremely self centred of me but I can honestly say that I never really thought about the impact on the environment that my daily hair wash would have. Obviously my daily hair wash is just a drop in the ocean (excuse the pun) but over all – there are a heck of a lot of chemicals being flushed down the drain and into the ocean. They might well be making my hair shiny and glossy, but they aren’t doing much for the environment. So lots of environment points to The Body Shop to bringing out a range with this in mind – all shampoos/conditioners/hair butters in the range are free from silicones, parabens, colourants and sulphates.
Trying to look at the positives (other than the environment thing, obviously) my hair is volumised with these products – but this is probably because it’s dry and frizzy. A little bit like when I use Lush’s Big Shampoo – it makes my hair big, but dry. I do love the smell of the range – so that’s a positive. It smells of honey with something floral, but not overly girly. Plus the prices are reasonable £4 for 250ml or £6 for 400ml and the body butter is £8 for 200ml.
