REVIEW: Burt’s Bees Shampoo & Conditioner

Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo & Conditioner

Sometimes the real test of a product is whether you’re happy with something once the newness wears off.

Other things you know much sooner that the product isn’t going to work for you: like the Burt’s Bees shampoo and conditioner with my naturally curly hair (and local hard water.)

With my hair wet, it was super slick and clean feeling – almost squeaky clean. But when it dried I had to put more product in it than I ever have in my life to keep it from being a giant frizz bomb. I applied mouse and two types of hairspray heavily before my hair looked normal.

Since I had straightened my hair the first time I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try it a second time, applying mouse while my hair was still wet and letting it curl. It still didn’t work for me … my hair looked ratty.

I will say that since using it and then switching back to my regular shampoo and conditioner my hair has been looking a bit glossier and healthier. It definitely had some clarifying capabilities. I think it would be an awesome shampoo and conditioner for someone with naturally straight hair. I however have already swapped my purchase on makeup alley…
