The Body Shop: Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter Review

I know I don’t normally do reviews BUT I’ve been coming across products that I really love so, I’m trying my hand at being a bit of a beauty blogger. Wish me luck! Like, a lot of luck…

So my hair has always been a bit troublesome and prone to knots. I usually use Yuko Anti-Frizz Leave-In Conditioner after towel drying my hair but I really wanted to get an intense conditioning treatment/mask for when my hair gets REALLY dry.

When my sister gave me The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter for Christmas, I was super excited to try it out. I love Body Shop products as they don’t test on animals, like to ethically source their ingredients and they always smell so damn good! The Hair Butter is a deep-conditioning treatment promises to leave your hair ‘soft, glossy and tangle-free’, right up my street then.

My first impression of the product wasn’t actually that great. It has quite a strange, almost chemical smell which made me think about exactly what was in the product (pracaxi oil, manketti nut oil, Fairtrade honey and olive oil if you were interested!) It was a bit off-putting at first because I was scared my hair would smell like that too. Don’t worry, that doesn’t happen!

The consistency of the butter is GREAT. It’s really light and creamy and it goes pretty far! They recommend that you use  1-2 hazelnut size amounts on your hair which covers the tips and about half of my thick, curly, medium-length hair. For full coverage (or if I want to use this product like a ‘mask’), I use about 5-6 hazelnut size scoops.

This product is also great as you can leave it on for just 5 minutes (those days when you’re in a bit of a rush) and it still leaves your hair feeling super soft and silky AND smelling really lush and (funnily enough) rainforesty.

When you leave it on for 20 minutes, oh my! My hair was 100% tangle-free, really silky to the touch and it held this beautiful smell ALL day. It also made my hair easier to style, which, as someone with crazy curly hair, is a really useful effect for a product to have.

At £3, this butter is a total bargain and also worth picking up to try if you’re curious.

Hope you liked my mini-review! Let me know if you’d like me to do more.

Until next time beautiful people xx
