TBS Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream Review

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream
I picked TBS Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream during a 20% members-only sales.  I have very unruly hair, and something that promises to banish frizz seemed like a must-have.  I don't have very defined curls to start with.  My hair is lost somewhere between wavy and oh, wait, I want to be curly!  So really, what I was looking for when I picked up this product was something that would keep my hair settled in place, and if it keeps a bit of the curl that would be a bonus.  The TBS Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream comes packaged in a tube with a flip-open cap.

This is a pale pale brown cream and has the consistency of a lotion.  The first thing that I did notice about this, though, was the smell.  It smells like caramel and looks like molten icecream, and I wanted to eat it up right away :P :P

How to Use TBS Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream

Apply sparingly to damp hair and style as usual. Can also be used on dry hair between washes.  I had some simple expectations from a product with simple claims plus it was on sale, so the tube joined the growing pile in my shopping basket.

A conditioning cream that helps define curls and tame frizz,
leaving your hair smooth, shiny and feeling great.

TBS Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream - My experience with the product

For me at least, this is a complete waste of money.  It doesn't work.  It doesn't control frizz.  It does not define any curls.  Nothing.  Oh wait, that's not really true.  It does do one thing - it made my hair rough and tangled.  Or maybe that's how it controls the frizz - hair gets all rough and tangled, so no flying around and getting frizzy.  It smells good - yummy - and that's all there is to it.  If it was a harmless yummy-smelling cream, I won't have minded so much, but it made my hair feel like I had never ever conditioned it.  Needless to say, I won't be buying this ever again.

I bought two haircare products from TBS - Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter and this Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Cream - both superuseless and left my hair worse than it was before my experiments.  I don't know if I could brave another haircare product from TBS ever.

  1. HAWww too bad!! :( I wonder what in it causes your hair to become rough and tangled??? IS it that potassium sorbate? They should have included some alcohol in the ingredients!! hee hee...alcohol softens hair naa!! :D :D :D

  10. wow...ur reviews on TBS hair care is really frightening me...I wanted to try their hair treatment products though din see them ven I went there...din ask the SA though...

  11. The two things I tried were useless. My sis tried the Banana conditioner - with equally rotten reviews :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. I had always wanted to get this product because of those high claims. Too bad doesn't work. Would stay away now. :( :(

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow, thanks for the review... I am always on the look-out for my holy grail to tame my frizz into curls, so I guess I can scratch this one from the quest. I did like the banana line though, although not enough to justify the extra money it cost. I have frizz and a lots and lots of hair, so I go through hair products at mind boggling speeds ;-)

  14. thank goodness i read your review. too bad it didn't work. you know the hair butter did nothing for me either! Strange how anti-frizz products can do the opposite to your hair! I'll tell you what worked for my super frizzy, moody hair - baby hair oil followed with a hydrating shampoo and then Himalaya's detangler. My hair has never felt better and very little hair fall. I feel blessed!

  15. *hunterwali* to the product...i stay away from all this anti frizz products ...i never know what they do to the hair...there is one serum called grapeseed serum in TBS...wht that does is ...the hair shines and it settles the frizzy hair...but am not sure how diff that is from an livon except it smells heavenly !!!!!

  18. Anuya - Baby hair oil - never tried that one :) :)

    Dalaluz - Have you tried Curly Wurly shampoo from Lush? I have not tried it myself, but I have read some nice reviews for that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nivedita - guess am not going to recommend this one to you :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. aah ok...i thought they had a members sale before the current 20% sale ....its on till i think feb 14th...i still hv not been able to go...i am resisting myself so much....

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  27. I m using TBS anti dndruff ginger shampoo and its pretty useless too....my search for HG shampoo continues....

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am using Syoss Shampoo and I like it!! :P :P :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cali - because the veg shop might be selling turmeric roots and I might want to buy that to grind and put on my face as a DIY face mask!!!

    Farha - Generally, TBS seems to be superbly useless with haircare :D :D :D but I have read good reviews for their Rainforest range - shampoo/conditioner, so maybe it does suit some ppl :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. er...what else will you add in that face mask?

    ReplyDelete
  31. !!!!!!! Besan :D And that I will find in the shop next to the vegetable shop..but there I will also find cute small tubes of perfectly useless facewashes or face packs and I will buy those too :|

    ReplyDelete
  32. he he..they look so tempting na..those chotu chotu tubes!! :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. oh ya that reminds me that i need to buy kasturi manjal :D....rainforest shampoo ...me like...have been using it for past month and it does give that shine to my hair !

    ReplyDelete
  34. errr... why dont you give that Loreal TEC a try...It's for frizzy hair. I saw it at the salon also the other day.

    I personally am going to pick up the rainforest rage because it's been a month I have been looking for a hair acre range without harmful chemicals and only TBS is fitting there.

  35. I like Lush..me just sticking to it. :D

  43. ohh shats..!! i was planning to buy the rainforest shampoo as a gift to a friend..!! i see its got mixed reactions...but now im thinkin not to... i dun wantt her cursing me whenever she uses it... :/

    u could try herbal essence one for the cirls... although i dont have curly hair .. but iv seen my wavy to curly hair friends use it and seen how their curls look more defined nd not to mention bouncy...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh..I have never tried Herbal Essences..don't know why :| Will surely get the next time I see it, thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. the regualr herbal essence bottles work and smell great for many.. although i found them ok.. but the one which im talking abt , that range comes in long colourfull cute bottles.. do check it..its not too expensive na so wont burn a hole in ur pocket also.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have seen them in only a few shops, Neha, not everywhere or maybe I just don't stare long enough at the haircare section :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have been reading some of your posts and I really enjoy them :) Before I started reading the review I already knew the product wasnt going to work, it sounds all mild mannered and I think frizzy hair needs some serious sounding stuff...I should know, considering I have curly and frizzy hair too..!..I am planning to try Kerastase, since natural products have let me down where frizz and curls are concerned...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Too mild mannered for frizzy hair :D :D True :D
