The Body Shop | Banana Hair Care

Don’t you hate it when companies discontinue products you absolutely love?!?!?  You occasionally get brands like MAC who bring back items limited edition and then they are gone again. Sad face.

The Body Shop has relaunched some much loved products so I picked a pair of them.  Any one remember Banana Shampoo and Conditioner?  This was originally launched way way back in 1988 and The Body Shop has brought back the fruity duo.

Now I admit I have for sometime been head over hills with Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner in Hello Hydration (the blue bottles) for dry damaged hair.  I had started using it when my hair was damaged from bleaching (I went through a caramel blonde Cheryl Cole phase, don’t ask).  Bleaching my hair damaged it so badly it was practically braking in my hands.  Now my hair has fully recovered, so I’m up for a change in hair products plus me and my hair are a little bored.

I remember using these products when they were released originally and they were lovely back in the day.  Are they still lovely, oh yes. Sniff these bottles content and you’ll think your smelling a Banoffee Pie right under your nose...yum!  Let me introduce you to my fruity chums...

I’ve been using these for the past month and I love what these products do to my hair.  Gorgeous smelling, beautiful shine, lovely condition, silky...need I say more??...yes?

Each bottle costs £3.99 for 250ml.  I don’t think that’s too bad.   A cool thing is if you are part of The Body Shop reward scheme ‘Love Your Body’ you can get 10% off purchases over a certain amount.  (Also you get free gifts and a present on your birthday month...yay!!!)

My one and only problem with product is the size of the bottle, I LOVE the product itself. But the bottle size is a little frustrating as for £3.99 you only get 250ml, for some people that’s absolutely fine.  For me someone with thick hair, you tend to use more product, especially conditioner.  So with smaller bottles and thicker hair, you can run out of product faster.  Booooooooooooooo!!!!  If The Body Shop made a 500ml bottle then I’d be over the moon.

Want to see my hair, cue more photos of me posing in the bathroom mirror.

nice looking hair..

see the shine??

I do hope these are here to stay now, don't know what I'd do without them now.  Has a company relaunched anything you used to love?
