If you have been reading my blog for few days, you might know the importance of deep conditioning your hair frequently!! As much as I love to deep condition my hair, more often than not I get too lazy to whip out concoctions in the kitchen.. But I mostly manage to drag myself to the kitchen to try something or the other. However, there are days when I am travelling or I just am not able to find the time or ingredients to blend and apply to my hair. It is then that this The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter comes handy.
Well, this is the only store bought conditioner that I came across. So let’s see if this works for my dry, frizzy, damaged, transitioning wavy-curly hair.
Ingredients: Silicone-free (curly hair friendly)
Here you can find the list of ingredients. It is silicone free and paraben free.
Rs. 1095 for 200ml
Availability: At The Body Shop stores and Online
Easily available online. Sometimes at discounted rates. I ordered from Snapdeal at a great discount. It is always stocked up at TBS Stores. I have also seen this in the TBS counter at Lifestyle. So, availability is not a problem.
The consistency of the product is very thick. the product is thick, white creamy consistency.
You can see the consistency in the pic below:
Comes in a plastic tub with screw close cap. The packaging is very sturdy, leak-proof and travel friendly.
Review for curly/wavy hair:
If you have not read about my hair properties, then let me tell you quickly that I am currently transitioning from heat damaged to natural hair, I have low porosity 2b/2c mix hair which tends to get dry and frizz easily. So, in my search to find a good deep conditioning treatment for the times that I travel (which was very often in recent past), I decided to get my hands on this product. I had been looking for a deep conditioning treatment for a very long time, however could never really decide. After going silicone and sulfate free, this one was the only choice that I had (if you know of any other silicone free deep conditioning treatment, please do let me know in the comments below of share your review in the Forums.)
So, about my experience now~~ The consistency is very thick, however it is easy to spread on hair. A very little amount is enough to cover my less dense, long hair. Which means that this tub is gonna last looooooooong. It has a very nice fragrance which lingers on for a while after wash. I leave it on for about 15-20mins and then rinse out completely. It makes my hair super soft and well-conditioned. Hair feels and looks healthy!! My hair retains more moisture, frizz is controlled and curls feel smoother and bouncy. Even without a gel my hair seems well defined, my hair curls more and has a bounce!! I had been using it once every 2 weeks. I am totally in love with this hair butter. It is called a hair butter, however does not feel that heavy on the hair. However, if you have low porosity hair like mine, you need to follow 1 or 2 extra steps to get maximum benefit from this product. Will share “Steps to follow” at the end of this post.
- Conditions hair very well
- Moisturizes, controls frizz, makes hair look and feel healthy, combats dryness
- Curls look smooths and bouncy
- A little goes a long way
- Has a pleasant fragrance
- Silicone and paraben free
- Packaging is leak-proof, sturdy and travel friendly
- Price is high
- Tub packaging might be a con for some as it requires dipping fingers into the product for each scoop. Hey! you can always use a spoon/spatula, right? 😉
It is an awesome deep conditioner. If you are an “on-the-go” girl who travels frequently with no time for kitchen blends, or just too lazy to try and figure out the ingredients to put in your hair mask, this product is for you. That said, don’t we all get lazy at times and just want to treat ourselves to some relaxed hair spa at home? If yes, then this product is a must have. It has awesome fragrance and is like a boon for your curls and waves!! 🙂 It is silicone and parabens free, so totally perfect fpr our gorgeous curlies and wavies who follow the sulfate and silicone free regimen.
How I use it?
- I wash my hair with sulfate-free shampoo with warm water, squeeze out excess water and then apply this Deep Conditioner (DC) to my hair by dividing in 4-5 sections.
- Gently detangle hair using fingers and then run a wide tooth comb spread the product evenly.
- Wear a shower cap putting all the hair in. Sometimes I wrap a towel dipped in warm water over the shower cap. The warm water and warmth from the towel or cap helps in opening up the hair cuticles which in turns helps in the product seeping in. If you have low porosity hair, I would suggest you always follow this step while applying deep conditioning treatments.
- Keep it for 15-20 minutes
- Rinse off with cold water.
- Style as usual
P.S. I usually skip my conditioner when I apply this deep conditioner to my hair.
Sadly, I misplaced my TBS hair butter somewhere while travelling 🙁 I had used it few times, however there was so so soooooooooo much of product left in that pretty little tub!! 🙁 I called and checked everywhere I went but no one has it….I am just hoping that I find it lying somewhere in my mom’s bathroom or cupboard or kitchen (just anywhere) next time when I go there…
