My experience with The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner:

I have finished the shampoo long back but the conditioner is yet to be emptied! Both the shampoo & conditioner are meant for dry hair types. I have combination hair type with oily scalp & dry hair ends. 

PACKAGING OF THE BODY SHOP RAINFOREST MOISTURE SHAMPOO

Packaging:

The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo comes in a deep brown coloured, elongated, see-through plastic bottle fitted with a firm flip top cap. And the Conditioner comes in a long, slender white coloured, opaque plastic bottle which is also secured with a sturdy flip top lid. The product-related details are mentioned on the packaging. These are absolutely travel-friendly.

Texture:                                                 

TBS Rainforest Moisture shampoo is transparent in colour and has gel type texture with a runny consistency. The conditioner has a thick creamy texture and is white in colour. Both have a herbal scent which is pleasant and is not overpowering.

Performance:

Rainforest Shampoo-

To cleanse the hair, I had to take a generous amount of the Rainforest shampoo. Being a surfactants (SLS/SLES) free hair cleanser, it does produce the required amount of lather if not rich. However, it never gave me a squeaky clean scalp with a single hair wash! I apply red powder sindoor (vermillion) every day and to clean that sindoor residue off my mid hair parting, I had to rigorously rub my scalp. Or at times, I would use earbuds to remove the leftover sindoor which was an extra work for me post hair wash! On days, when I had oiled my hair, I needed to wash my hair twice with double amount of shampoo to remove the oiliness.

Anyway, I do feel this is a good shampoo for  everyday use and dry hair as it doesn’t strip natural oils of the scalp whilst cleansing and provides you with soft, manageable hair afterwards. I have sensitive, itchy scalp and this shampoo never caused any itchiness or irritation to the scalp. Even though this shampoo is meant for only dry hair types, it worked great on my husband’s oily hair as well.  However, it doesn’t help with dandruff and hair fall, neither has it claimed so! 

What I liked 😍:
  • Gentle shampoo
  • No scalp irritation or itchiness
  • Has a pleasant smell
  • The scent lingers on hair for a good period of time
  • Post usage, hair feels soft and refreshed
  • No chemicals
  • Suitable for normal to dry hair

What I didn’t like 😞:
  • Firstly, it requires a lot of product to cleanse the hair than your regular shampoo. It means that the product won’t last you long!
  • You ought to be cautious while using the product as the shampoo is quite runny!
  • It couldn’t control the hair fall!  Honestly, now I have stopped expecting this miracle from all shampoos
  • It doesn’t add any volume to the hair! I know it’s for dry hair but what about those people with dry and fine hair types? I want my shampoos to add some bounce to my limp hair!
  • Hair gets oily within two days from the hair wash!
  • Lastly, it’s pricey!

NBAM Rating: 4.5/5

Rainforest Conditioner:

Coming to the conditioner, it has a thick creamy texture which gets smoothly applied to the hair ends. It also comes in a generous 250ml size which is going to last you long even if used daily. The biggest con of this product is its packaging!! Lord, it’s so hard to get the conditioner out of this bottle, literally sucks! I have somehow managed to transfer the content into another bottle so now I don’t face this issue anymore.

The conditioner adds moisture to the hair and makes my hair manageable leaving it healthy, soft and tangle-free.

So what I liked:
  • It has no chemicals
  • Smooth application
  • Has a mild scent that lasts long
  • Makes hair soft and manageable
  • Travel-friendly

What I didn’t like:
  • Bogus packaging! Squeezing or taking out the product is a daunting task with this one
  • It adds no shine or lustre to my hair; makes the dry hair ends soft though!
  • It doesn’t add any volume to the hair, rather, often makes my hair look flat!! So while using this conditioner, you need to keep in mind that not to apply too much of it on your hair

I have used this conditioner both with its partner and other hair cleansers, either way, the effect remained the same! This conditions the hair nicely but it’s not that effective compared to my other hair conditioners. Nevertheless, I found the rainforest conditioner way better than the shampoo one.

NBAM Rating: 4.7/5

To conclude,

The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, both are chemical-free, vegan hair products 😊. Maybe, I have had a bad luck with this brand and that’s why no hair-care products worked great on my hair 😞! Anyway, this range is no more available (you can buy them online from Amazon, though), so it’s time to look for a different variety. I would recommend these to all who have normal to dry hair types.
