Review: Burt’s Bees Very Volumizing Pomegranate & Soy Shampoo & Conditioner

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 Queen 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.  The scent is lovely when using both products, not over powering, just yummy 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 an explanation 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?

  1. I’ve been searching for the BB Shampoo & Conditioner for coloured hair, after an American friend recommended it, but I’ve had no luck.

    I personally swear by Lush products for my hair. I colour and bleach it every 3 months so I need something to look after my hair. Surprisingly after switching, my hair is in the best condition it has been in for years!

    1. I used to work at Lush and used their hair care and skin care, it is a fantastic range. I find traditional liquid shampoo far easier to use though. Have you tried on the Burts Bees official site for the colour shampoo? It might be that they don’t stock it in the UK, I will let you know if I spot it.

      1. Thank you! Unfortunately they don’t have it on their website, but I have found other UK websites that stock it. I actually have a back-log of Lush shampoo bars and conditioner to use as I got some gift sets for my birthday, but once they’re gone I think I will try out BB.

  2. Great review – did you find that this added any volume at all – one thing I like about my current shampoo is that it lives up to the claims. Loving the idea of it smelling like Ribena. I’d end up licking my fringe all the time though!

    1. Thanks for the comment Lodz, yes I would say it added some volume. Which to be honest isn’t difficult with my hair. I always have disillusioned visions of volumizing shampoos though, I imagine that I’ll wait up with a Charlie’s Angels styled barnet, but it’s sadly not so.

  3. Maria recommended I check out SLS free shampoos as my hair gets crazy greasy, I wash it every day which is probably the worst thing I could do, but I hate greasy hair! I’ll be getting my hands on this and giving it a go for sure 🙂 x

    1. Check out my Liz Earle shampoo review too, that is really good. You really shouldn’t wash your hair everyday, it will only make greasiness worse! If you are worried about it in between washes you should try some Dry Shampoo like Bastiste, which will lessen the greasiness and freshen you up. Going SLS free has done my hair wonders.
