RAVE for Bodyshop Honey Shampoo and Conditioner

Just thought i'd share how much I love this stuff!! I've had a months worth of consistently great hair days!!!! The conditioner reminds me alittle of the moptop conditioner but doesn't weigh my hair down like mop top does.

The contents are listed on the website (bodyshop.co.uk / bodyshop.com), by the looks of things the A cone is a lot lower down the ingredients list in the UK than in the US... weird! the condish has banana pulp, honey, brazil / olive and sesame oil in it... yum
The one time I had a chance to pick this up locally, I was on strict CG and because it had the "A" cone I didn't get it. Now I totally regret it because it seems like it has a lot of wonderful ingredients. I love stuff that has banana pulp in it (which not much does, but it seems to really help moisturize).

Glad you are having great hair days with it!

Would you need a sulphate poo to get the A cone out?

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

I use the honey shampoo as well, its sulphate free, the cleansing ingredients are Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Surfactant) and Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate (Surfactant) which i think are very gentle.

p.s. sorry for being an enabler

I have been loving these for years now!

When i first tried the shampoo i didn't like it, it didn't foam up like i was used to, but i tried it again and i'm glad i did it's top of my list of favourite products.
the condtioner really makes my hair soft and bouncy and it smells great too, i try to recommend them to everyone i know
Long thick curls, mix of 3b/3c
i'm so easily swayed... I picked this up today. I managed to restrain myself to just getting the smaller bottles... a trial size of the shampoo, since I won't use a whole lot, and the smaller bottle of conditioner. I'm using it tomorrow morning. Can't wait!

Well, I think we have a winner!

I used both the shampoo and conditioner this morning. The poo was really gentle, and rich and thick. It got my hair nice and clean, but without the squeaky, 'uh oh, I've killed my hair' noise. And the conditioner was thick, creamy, luscious, and left my hair SO soft all day! I got, like, three compliments on my hair today. This combo seems to be very curl enhancing... I have bigger clumps and more big fat spirals instead of waves. AND they smell awesome. Sorta honey-ish, but also nutty and lightly musky. Very appealing.

This shampoo and conditioner team kicks the butt of my former favorite, Elucence. And I can get this nearby, instead of paying shipping!

I hope these results keep up, because I think I might have a new favorite!

"the cleansing ingredients are Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Surfactant) and Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate (Surfactant) which i think are very gentle. "

Will those ingredients work to remove stuff like dimethiconol and amodimethicone, or do I need something with coco(?) betaine or stronger? I've been doing CG but I want to experiment with the Suave Anti-Frizz cream and G&S Curl & Shine leave in, but I don't know what I need to get rid of any eventual 'cone buildup. I've been reading all the shampoo threads, but if the Bodyshop Honey will work, it sounds great and easily available. Another I'm considering is one of the Trader Joe shampoos. Thanks for any advice.

fine 3b curls and spirals - first goal BSL!!

HG's - Body Shop Honey shampoo & conditioner and Shea Moisture leave-in condish which gives me lovely frizz-free bouncy curls. My PJ is calling me to experiment with gels again... argh!
AND they smell awesome. Sorta honey-ish, but also nutty and lightly musky.

Oh no! I love Elucence! I kinda got over my PJ habits, but now I'm DYING to try this if it 's better than Elucence! And you do bring up a good point: I won't have to pay shipping.

ETA: The Lanolin kind of throws me off, it's in both the Honey Shampoo and Conditioner.
