I got the Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit Shampoo and Conditioner as a part of the Burt's Bees Head to Toe Starter Kit - a great set for anyone wishing to try out a bunch of products without hurting the pocket.  Both the shampoo and the conditioner have a citrusy smell and claim to provide supershiny hair.

This is a clear, pale yellow shampoo with a strong citrus smell to it.  Though not really very mild, if your hair needs some extra cleaning or if it's very oily, you might need to use a bit more of this shampoo or maybe shampoo twice to get clean-feeling hair.

It leaves my hair soft but kind of tangled.  This problem is, of course, solved enough with the conditioner, so no worries :D

A thick, creamy white conditioner that is an absolute essential especially if you have just washed your hair with the Burt's Bees shampoo from the same range, this does what it claims and leaves hair shiny and soft.

I leave it on for at least 2-3 minutes before washing it off.  There is no slippery feel to my hair, and I don't get a dry itchy scalp (a common problem I face with silicone-containing haircare products).  It leaves just naturally soft hair.  A winner for me :D

Overall, I loved the Burt's Bees Grapefruit and Sugar Beet haircare range.  I love that they don't irritate my scalp and leave my hair feeling quite normal.  I did not find my hair "supershiny" though - was no shinier than usual - but I haven't used it that many times to tell if it is a longterm effect :)  I would definitely NOT use the shampoo WITHOUT the conditioner.  I never follow instructions on using products from the same range, but with the Grapefruit and Sugar Beet range at least, I would follow exactly what Burt's Bees suggests and use the shampoo with the conditioner from the same range.

Cost:  $8.00 (for regular size bottles of both the shampoo and conditioner - not what is shown in this review).
