--- I tested : Burtís Beeís - Pomegranate and Soy Shampoo & Conditioner --- Smell: ♥♥♥ - Nice and fruity, little bit to bubblegum. Texture: ♥♥♥♥ - Easy to spread, foams well. Effect: ♥♥ - At first good, but on the long run hair gets waxy. Ingredients: ♥♥♥♥ - Too many drying agents but all green. ______________________________________________________ Ingredients: water, decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside, coco-betaine, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, honey, glycine soja (soybean) protein, glycerin, sucrose laurate, betaine, glucose, fragrance, punica granatum (pomegranate) extract, moringa pterygosperma seed extract, soy amino acids, xanthan gum, citric acid, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase ______________________________________________________ Note on INCIís: It really is all natural and nothing bothersome can be found. However it contains to many (drying) detergents for me (decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside, coco-betaine, coco-glucoside) Coco-glucoside are mild and would have been enough, no need for drying lauryl-clucoside and tons of surfactants that just dry out the hair over time. ______________________________________________________ Personal Experience: For the record: My hair is butt-length, straight with a medium thickness of strands (0.06-0.07mm) and a 3.7Ē ponytail circumference. Itís very sleek. BB was the first Shampoo brand I tried in the States. I was desperately looking for an organic brand here and gave it a try. First thing I noticed was the for an organic shampoo unusually rich lather. After the wash my hair felt clean, the conditioner did good work also and left my hair soft. After one month I noticed more tangling and my hair felt sort of waxy, which was build up from the shampoo. I had to remove it with a baking soda wash but it kept coming back. The shampoo also seemed to really dry out my hair and so I stopped using it after 2 months. I would not recommend it for very long hair or growing locks but I can see how it would work on shorter, layered styles. Over all: not horrible but not for me. Emi
