The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter is a part of the new Rainforest Hair Care range introduced by The Body Shop.  This range, which includes shampoos and conditioners for various hair types, uses products ethically sourced from the Amazon rain forests.  I picked the TBS Rainforest Hair Butter because I have dry hair, and "hair butter" seemed like a made-for-me product.

The TBS Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter is like a deep conditioner.  It contains no silicones, parabens or colourants, and it smells amazing.  I have always had a problem with silicone-containing products like Dove, Pantene even though they are the best for taming my unruly hair.  My scalp does not seem to like them much and gets very itchy.

The product itself is a white cream, somewhat like hair masks from L'Oreal or Dove, if you have tried them.  It's like a thicker version of a conditioner.

How to Use the TBS Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter for Dry Hair

My Experience with the Bodyshop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter

I tried the recommended 1-2 hazelnut size amount and applied to my hair as instructed.  It didn't do anything for my hair.  It seemed like I had forgotten to put a conditioner AND used a harsh shampoo.  Next, I tried increasing the quantity, but that just adds to the problem.  It leaves some kind of a residue on the hair.  I can increase or decrease the quantity, but all it does is increase or decrease the residue on my hair.  I have found mixed reviews for this product online.  There are many people who claim this is an amazing product and equally loads who claim that it makes their hair feel like they rubbed candle wax through it.  I come in the latter category.  I give this the benefit of doubt, but I would not be repurchasing.  I am planning to pass on testers to unsuspecting victims (friend, mom, sister), and hopefully this work for someone.
