My Experience With TBS Banana Shampoo:

This was the first time I had used any product from The Body Shop. All these years, I have read a lot of good reviews about this brand, especially their hair cleansers. So finally, last year I took a plunge and purchased this shampoo. If you remember my August 2016 haul, it was part of that haul. I didn’t buy its partner, banana conditioner and used it with my other favourite conditioners.

As all of you know that I experiment a lot with hair cleansers, so how could this be left behind 😁 I tried out this cleanser with different conditioners and in various ways, so that I can find out what’s actually so great about it 😢

My findings are as follows-  
                                                   
When used with my favourite TNC Nori Hair Conditioner:
Post wash, I took a good amount of Nori conditioner into my palm and applied liberally on the dry hair ends. With this conditioner, I must admit that it worked really well but something was missing, SHINE & LUSTRE EFFECT! Despite being natural products, both the shampoo and the conditioner are enough to make your hair look soft and bouncy. Though, with the chemical-laden deep conditioners, you would get a super soft, silky-wilky hair. But remember, that would cost you HAIRLOSS for sure. Since I have not tried it with its partner banana conditioner, not sure if they together would work like magic!

When used on Oily Hair:
I regularly oil my hair and on the day of shampooing, I don’t use conditioners afterwards. So, basically, you need to apply a copious amount of this hair cleanser for hair wash. Sometimes, I had to apply the double amount of this hair cleanser to get rid of all the oiliness from my hair at one go. Nevertheless, the after effect was quite amazing; bouncy, softer hair is all you get😊 

When used alone:
This shampoo is basically designed for thin and limp hair beauties. The job of this cleanser is to provide you squeaky clean, lustrous and voluminous hair. To be honest, I feel that it is not made for all hair types😞 Although, it thoroughly cleansed my hair but I felt that it made my frizzy hair ends more rough and parched. So for dry hair, it has to be combined with deep conditioners or leave-in conditioners, but don’t miss any!

If not used with conditioners, it worsens the hair condition making hair more dry, frizzy and brittle. However, this cleanser is a boon for oily, limp and thin hair beauties. It adds volume and bounce to the hair, which looks excellent. Regarding hair fall, it didn't help me either😭 It doesn’t produce much lather and smells exactly of banana fruit (so tempting πŸ˜‹). The texture is also quite similar to the fruit, a soft & mousse but when mixed with water, a pale yellow liquid solution is formed.

If you use apple cider vinegar as the last rinse, you will get an amazing result! Got Soft, silky and nourished hair every time, I used this trick. Do try this method πŸ˜‰

Plus Points:

  • Excellent hair cleanser for fine, limp and oily hair
  • All natural
  • Good for combination hair
  • Cleanses hair really well
  • Smells wonderful
  • Adds volume and bounce to the hair
  • Makes hair soft
  • Would last long
  • Travel-friendly
  • Easily available                        

Minus Points:

  • Expensive
  • Not great for dry, frizzy hair
  • Doesn't prevent hair fall.
  • Doesn’t give shine or lustre 
  • Ingredient List is not fully mentioned!

Rating: 4.4/5

Conclusion:


   Best                                                Good                                               Nice
Oily, fine hair                        Combination                                    Dry hair            

Although I haven’t tried this cleanser with banana conditioner, the shampoo alone provided me with a clean scalp and refreshed hair. It worked amazingly when combined with apple cider vinegar or any deep conditioner.

  13. This is one of my favorite shampoos and i use it with its partner banana conditioner, it works better that way..you are right it can make hair dry if used on non oiled hair and not followed up with conditioner, specially in chilly dry weather... Initially j didn't like it because it made my hair detox of chemicals and then after that phase my hair were lively volumenous and all good things :).
    Do give it a second chanve and this time with banana conditioner..and buy them in sale ;) i do :D
