The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner Review


Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi All,

The Banana Shampoo & conditioner has been loved by so many and has been praised  to no end. Hence, I didn’t hesitate to  pick this up in April itself since my Lush Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo and Veganese Conditioner were getting over…

Right away, let me tell you that this shampoo and conditioner has been tested on 2 people with diff hair types. I have voluminous curls and crazy maggie hair, whereas my friend who also tried it for me has pin straight flat hair which has absolutely no volume. SO how did it work for each of us? Did I love it? Did she? Read on and find out!

My experience with TBS Banana Shampoo & Conditioner:-

  • Packaging – This comes in the usual transparent plastic bottle with a  black flip top lid.

  • Color & Texture – The shampoo and conditioner, both are the color of banana pulp.. the same dull yellow. Texture wise, the shampoo is thinner than the conditioner. The conditioner is honestly a pain to squeeze out!! It’s almost like a souffle stuck in the bottle. I have to yank ans push and do all sorta drama to get some product.  The shampoo lathers quite a bit too which I’m sure all of us like 🙂

  • Fragrance – It has a very concentrated  banana scent as expected. Parita mentioned that it smells exactly like the banana muffins she makes which is now what I’m reminded of when I  use this .. 😉

Here’s what the shampoo looks like..

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo & Conditioner :-

I mentioned at the beginning about what my hair is like…This shampoo made my hair squeaqly clean for sure no doubt about that..but was horrible for the volume. I was hoping that using this would help me tame my hair. But I forgot that Banana is well known for injecting volume onto the scalp. When I use this, my hair goes haywire! Literally! My hair is ALL over the place and even the conditioner although helps in smoothening a bit, it doesnt help with the knots and tangles 🙁

I was so heart broken but then thought that so many ppl praising this can’t be wrong..So I gave a bit of each to my friend with straight and flat hair. And she LOVED it! She always used to complain that she looked all ‘Chipku’ and that no headband could hold her hair but after using this, her hair has become soo good. She can now use a clutch without having it slide straight down to the ground 🙂 Her hair is also tangle free and looks infused with life!

Hence, I can conclude that this would suit hair which needs volume and bounce. But for curly haired gals like me for whom volume is a bit more in abundance, this isn’t really a good choice.

Pros of TBS Banana Shampoo & Conditioner:-

  • The shampoo is perfect for oily hair
  • The duo works well on flat hair or hair which needs a surge of volume.
  • Both of them smell yummy! I’d be ready to gobble it down infact 🙂
  • Makes the hair squeaky clean
  • No build up.
  • Shampoo lathers very well and very little is required for each use
  • One bottle of shampoo will last 2.5-3mts easily
  • Doesn’t strip the moisture from the hair.
  • Not too pricey considering that this actually works
  • No animal testing

  • Fragrance: 5/5

    Great review, I would also like to add that it works really well on us wavy haired girls as well. You should try their coconut range. I remember Anita marketing it especially for curly hair.
