Hey IMBB Gals,
I am back with a new review.
Today, I am going review The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo. I have combination hair type, i.e., oily scalp and dry ends. It’s the worst hair type possible. So, basically if I use a product that removes excess oil from the scalp, it would dry out my ends. If it’s too creamy or moisturizing, then the scalp becomes oily the next day. So, I’m always on the lookout for a product which removes the oil effectively without drying my hair too much. So, cutting the long story short, let’s find out if my quest to find the perfect product worked this time or not.
Product Description by Body Shop:
Cleanses to reduce excess oil for hair that looks clean and fresh all day. With pracaxi oil, white nettle, seaweed and Community Trade sugar and aloe vera. No silicones, sulphates, parabens or colourants. For oily hair.
Rs. 515 for 250 ml.
This shampoo contains no silicones, sulphates, parabens or colourants. It also meets our eco-conscious standard. It is respectful to the aquatic environment, meets strict biodegradability standards, and minimizes the use of non-sustainable packaging resources. We’re working hard to help protect our planet. Together we can make a difference.
The pracaxi tree grows in the wet tropical climate along the Delta of Amazonas River and its precious seeds are cold pressed for its oil. White nettle is traditionally used on oily and greasy hair due to its mild-cleansing properties. We buy Community Trade sugar from the Montillo Co-operative in Paraguay and aloe vera from the Guastatoya Farmers in Guatemala. Our trade rewards local suppliers fairly for their expertise, and helps them invest in their futures.
My Take on The Body Shop’s Rainforest Balance Shampoo:
This shampoo works and how!!!! I usually oil my hair overnight before my hair wash, I literally smother my hair with oil. 😛 I was pleasantly surprised when it washed my hair and all the oil was gone in just one wash, that too with a coin-sized amount for my shoulder length hair.
This is how the shampoo looks:
The shampoo has a clear gel-like consistency which is neither too thick nor runny.
What I Like about The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo:
- Just a small quantity required to wash shoulder length hair.
- Removes the last speck of oil from the hair without causing any hair fall.
- Not very drying for my type of hair.
- The shampoo is very mild.
- It is environment-friendly.
- Does not contain silicones, parabens or colourants.
- The Body Shop does not test on animals.
- Better packaging compared to the older bulky bottles that The Body Shop had.
What I Don’t Like about The Body Shop Rainforest Balance Shampoo:
- The smell isn’t that great, but I guess I can put up with that.
- Not suitable for gals with dry hair.

Definitely yes. It’s a boon for oily-hair beauties. I have found my HG shampoo :worship:
