I searched on here not so much info but more towards the 3/c/4 forums...
I bought it just now at CVS only because I'm running out of my DevaCare LowPoo and even though I wanted to try GTTT I ended up getting this because I was reading the ingredients and it looks pretty good...
(((I asked CVS if I can return it in case I didn't like, they said as long as you have a receipt so I'm sticking to it just in case)))
I used to use that very Burt's Bees 'poo. In my Fotki (I think) there are still pics of hairs in that 'poo which are not being damaged by it - in that short run.
I liked it. I used it in summer when I get a lot of dust and pollen in my hair and rinsing alone doesn't work. I used the conditioner too.
Shampoo: Good cleansing, lots of bubbles. Probably drying for dry hair, was not for mine. Stopped using due to an allergy to the preservative.
Conditioner: Light, okay for cowashing, not bad as a leave-in. Could build up on my hair, not necessarily anybody else's.
I've been interested in trying a Burt's shampoo for a while now. Keep us posted on how you like it!!!!!

I used the Burt's Bees Fragrance-Free Baby Shampoo -- I have a new-found sensitivity to fragrances, and decided to try this one. I didn't know that I was sensitive to essential oils and extracts, and maybe high concentrations of detergents (which this had in it), so it made me itch badly and I've since stopped using it. From a non-itchy curly girl standpoint, it wasn't that bad. For my very dry scalp and hair, though, it was quite drying (I've heard this from a lot of people about the Burt's Bees shampoos), and it gave a very nice lather. It did clean well -- maybe a little too well in my case -- but it just wasn't for me. I was glad I gave it a shot, though -- it's so all-natural, it's great! I hope it works out for you!

Mod-CG since 12/1/10!
I used Burt's Bees shampoos early on in my CG journey (it was only October, but seems like 10 years ago : )
I found it extremely drying. It made my hair really frizzy and undefined. It was awful actually. I gave it to my husband, who notices nothing when it comes to shampoo, but he didn't like it either. I love and use many other products Burt's Bees, but the shampoo didn't work for me at all (tried the Grapefruit and Baby).
