The Body Shop- Banana Truly Nourishing
Where are all my color treated hair followers at? You’re not alone, although years ago I thought I was! After a lot of research and trial and error with soooo many products I finally found what works for me. Yay! I’m going to be sharing a few of my favorite products that I have used and seen results. These products are great for color treated hair, and for non colored but dry hair too!
One of my all time favorite hair masks I always use is the Banana Truly Nourishing hair mask from The Body Shop. I absolutely love the smell and the texture of my hair after each use. It smells like, you guessed it bananas!! It has a blend of community trade natural and organic ingredients. It’s made from banana puree from Ecuador and brazil nut oil from Peru! This is 100% vegan, and a once a week treatment, but I use it minimum 2-3 times. It really helped my dry, damaged, overly colored hair lock in moisture and get that shine back. I currently have blonde hair, it’s not my real hair color, shocker! I’m naturally a very dark brown so getting my hair this light definitely took time, and a lot of TLC. I use hair masks at least 2-3 times per week, along with argan oil and coconut oil mists daily. Having blonde hair takes a lot of work to keep it healthy and hydrated. I have noticed such a big difference in my hair ever since I started using these products.
The Body Shop also has the shampoo & conditioner of this line, it smells amazingggg! The natural ingredients of this line is also what really made me comfortable to use on my colored hair. Since I have color treated hair, I’m always looking into ingredients to make sure it’s sulfate free and no harsh chemicals. Not only does that help with the health of your hair, it helps keep your color more fresh. I literally go bananas over these products, and the hubby really loves the smell too! I use themask anywhere from 20 minutes to 1-2 hours! I will leave it on and go on with my work and to do’s at home. The longer the better, so that your hair can actually soak in all the amazing ingredients! It’s $18 and you can find it here! The Shampoo and Conditioners come in a few different sizes, check them out here! The Body Shop has some great sales throughout the year, so look out for those deals!
The Body Shop- Rainforest Nutrition Hair Butter
Another great item from the Body Shop is their Rainforest hair butter. This is a deep conditioning, and luxurious moisture butter. It leaves my hair feeling so soft and I can easily brush through my hair after each use. No tangles! The scent of it is a very light and fresh scent inspired by the rainforest. It’s great for dry hair, or if you have dry ends. It contains community trade honey from Ethipoia and olive oil from Italy! Honey & olive oil are two amazing ingredients for dry hair! You can even make your own natural DIY mask at home. Maybe that’ll be another post? I have a lot to share on hair!
Another great fact for this product is that it is silicone, paraben and colorant free! My hair was screaming YAY when I first saw this. A helpful tip: I actually will use this on my ends when I do my banana hair mask. It’s called a hair butter but it’s a hair mask. It says to leave it on for 5 minutes and the wash it out with warm water. I’ll leave it on anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. The butter is $14, you can shop it here!
HASK-ARGAN OIL MASK
Do you know about argan oil? Do you use it? Argan oil is so good for nourishing dry, damaged hair. Coconut oil is amazing too but I have heard that for blonde hair it will slightly darken and change your color. Since my color is very important to me, I use Argan oil and it’s been doing wonders for me. Hask Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Treatment also contains Keratin. Keratin is a super strengthening, and hydrating treatment. It will restore and smooth dry, damaged, and chemically treated or over processed hair. Argan oil is amazing because your hair can easily absorb it and it will intensely hydrate your hair. The oil adds so much moisture and will bring those gorgeous locks back to life! Shop the hair mask here.
Their shampoo and conditioner is a really great set to use along with the hair mask. This whole collection is sulfate and paraben free. I found a really good deal on Amazon for the shampoo and conditioner set. Only $13! Shop it here!
I hope this post helped you if you’re looking into some amazing products for dry, damaged hair. These products really helped me get my hair shiny and healthy again after getting it bleached and colored. I used these products for at least 2 months and it took some time to see a big difference. Remember that everyone has different hair. Your color, texture, genes, treatments, all are different. My best advice is try a couple different products and give it at least 1-2 months to see great results. I always love to find more affordable options that don’t break the bank. I always keep this in mind- Just because it’s more expensive or has a big brand name on it, doesn’t mean it’s always better. Here’s to healthy and happy hair in 2019!
