Ok so this is a little update on the post about my haul from body shop mid season sale. I bought these two products because I suffer from greasy hair :( usually I wash my hair with Herbal Essences "fresh balance" which is for normal to oily hair.... its in the green bottle but not to be mistaken with the "dazzling shine" from herbal essences.
I have been using the body shop items since I got them and I have to say I'm pretty happy, My hair hasn't been so greasy so quickly , I'd even dare to say that its been a little dry ... like straw? I have never experience my hair feeling like this before .. its almost like I've dyed it with peroxide? BUT I would rather this than grease.
The shampoo doesn't really lather the way normal shampoo does so i find I need to make sure my hair is Saturated with water.. but you should really be doing this anyway. Safest and best way to wash your hair. It has a slightly nutty smell from the bottle but once lathered up it has more of a green floral smell.... Weird way to explain it i know, imagine picking a flower and breaking the stem I reckon that's what it smells like (it is nettle after all).
The conditioner on the other hand is great , leaves my hair lovely and soft and beautifully moisturized, I think i would actually use this as my regular conditioner and only use the shampoo once a week as a treatment type instead. The conditioner has a nutty / green plant smell and is the same even when applied to the scalp.
So overall I would buy the conditioner again in the bigger size because usually I cant use conditioners on a regular basis even if I thoroughly rinse them... my hair remains oily.
I would buy the shampoo in the same small size again but only use it when I felt a build up in my hair.
Hope that was useful to you guys :) xxxxxx
