I love this shampoo & conditioner. My hair is very dry and damaged and I have tried all sorts of shampoos and conditioners and treatments only to be disappointed every single time. I have to constantly use moisturizing treatments that never work, and I have to always use leave-in conditioner just to make my hair manageable, which makes my hair really greasy-looking by the end of the day. Unfortunately, Burt's Bees is owned by Clorox, so I will no longer use this great product. continued >>
Since I prefer to use products derived from mostly natural ingredients, when I saw this sitting on the shelf in it's pretty bottle I decided to try it. Unfortunately this left the absolute worst grimy film on my hair, to the point it was difficult to comb through after showering. It also left my highlighted hair limp and lifeless after blowdrying. The scent is very pleasant but I returned it due to the above issues.
This is from the new line of Burt's Bees GUD products, which come in shampoo, conditioner, hand cream, body wash & lotion, body butter, hand soap & mist. The scent I chose is the Floral Cherrynova, which is described as:
"top notes of juicy bing cherries and freen green, a heart of rosewood and a white floral bouquet, and bottom notes of warm milk accord and creamy musk"
Similar to the Bath & Body Works Cherry Blossom (the original, not the japanese). It contains 'fragrance', so it is not all natural, but it does contain quite a few natural ingredients. This is a strongly scented shampoo that leans towards the watery side, and lathers better on the second shampoo. The conditioner works okay with this and to my nose, is not as strongly scented as the shampoo. Leaves my hair shiny and soft, but not coated or weighed down. The only negative for me is I do notice a little more shedding, but my hair is prone to shedding anyways with the wrong formula. Probably best for those with fine or oily hair, without a lot of 'issues' (mine is fine, oilier at the roots, prone to dry ends & damage). Overall a nice basic shampoo that is strongly fragranced (stays on your hair all day) & reasonably priced. I paid $6.99 for mine at Ulta. Cute white packaging with pink flowers, too.
