On my search for the best SLS, Silicone and Paraben free hair care, it was only natural that I turn to a long term favourite of mine, Burts Bees. This was the first time I tried their hair care, I’ve been using their lotions and lip balms for years and absolutely adore everything they do. It’s another one of those brands that I feel like I can always rely on for quality, useful and effective products.
I’ve been using this duo for about a month now, so can now report back having throughly tested this range. First off, the scent is just perfect, in the bottle is smells fruity and fresh, it reminds me of the scent of Ribena, which is a nice nostalgic fragrance to be washing your hair in. You can’t really go wrong with something that smells this yum, can you?
As with all of the Burt’s Bees, they have aimed to use as many natural ingredients as possible, this range is 97.28% natural, impressive hey? It’s also cruelty free, paraben free, silicone free and SLS free. If you’re wondering what this SLS and silicone free stuff is about, check out the latest blog from Hayley at London Beauty QueenÂ who has summed it all up beautifully.
Anyway, back to the product, the shampoo is very watery, thin texture so you have to be careful when dispensing the product, as it comes out quite quickly, but this isn’t a problem after your first go, as you know to be wary. The shampoo does lather, but as with the Liz Earle Shampoo, it’s a gentle lather, rather than lots of bubbles that you get with a SLS shampoo. My only problem with the shampoo is that I feel that it is quite difficult to distribute evenly through my very long hair, it doesn’t seem as smooth an application as other shampoos.
The conditioner is your standard conditioner consistency, so very simple to use. Â The scent is lovely when using both products, not over powering, just yummyÂ pleasantness.
After washing, I do find that my hair a more difficult to comb through that with other shampoos, which is a bit odd and I don’t have anÂ explanationÂ for it. Once my hair is dry though, it’s shiny, smooth and has a little more volume. These huge bottles are great value for money and I love the results, so I would certainly buy it again.
What do you think? Have you tried Burts Bees Haircare? Which brands of natural hair care do you rate?
