The Body Shop Banana Hair Range!

The Body Shop Banana Hair Range!
Hey everyone!

Hope your week is going well and that you enjoyed my last post on the fabulous witchcraft museum I visited, I did originally start blogging to share my opinions and insights on solely beauty related things but if there is anything you’d like to see more (or less) of from me then just let me know 🙂

My mid-week post this week is on The Body Shops gorgeous banana hair range! It’s recently been re-packaged to look all fancy and new much like many of their other products and has a new addition in the form of a nourishing hair mask which I was DYING to try since hearing of its arrival. The banana hair range has always been a favourite for those with frizzy or dry hair because of how thick and beneficial it is, although not ever being as popular as it’s partner in crime ‘ginger shampoo’ which I’ve actually never tried but I know oh so many people love.

The shampoo and conditioner are 100% vegetarian like all of The Body Shops other products but unfortunately not vegan because they do contain honey. The new mask is the vegan option which did surprise me as because it’s marketed as the most intensive of them all, I thought it’d be the most likely product to contain honey. Instead it contains brazilian cupuacu butter, cocoa butter, shea butter and brazil nut oil. From this, their recent break-up with L’oreal and inflated campaign against animal testing, I think we can all tell just where the brand is headed! All of the products contain organic banana pureé from Ecuador and are formulated without mineral oils or silicones.

Banana Truly Nourishing Shampoo // RRP £6 for 250ml

In all honesty, I could probably give or take the shampoo. The smell is absolutely gorgeous from the banana pureé and it has left my hair looking super shiny alongside the other products but I feel like the main reason for that was the more effective conditioners that smell the exact same! It’s definitely lovely for a treat and if you like keeping your hair regime in one range and it also goes a really long way but I don’t think I could justify the price tag on the regular.

Banana Truly Nourishing Conditioner // RRP £6 for 250ml

The conditioner was a different story for me, the formula is so unbelievably thick. You don’t have to use a lot at all because of this, just run a bit through the hair with your fingers. I don’t even bother doing all over personally as my ends are the parts of my hair that need the nourishment and I like to get as much use out of products as I can (doesn’t everyone!?). I would definitely recommend this for anyone who suffers with dry, dull or frizzy hair from day to day. It’s really helped both mine and my mums hair massively in such a short space of time.

Banana Truly Nourishing Hair Mask // RRP £12 for 240ml

As a once a week treatment, this is fabulous. With all the different types of creamy butters in it, it’s bound to give your hair a massive boost whatever kind of state it’s in. I’d even recommend leaving it in overnight as it doesn’t feel like one that would have the tendency to make the hair oily at all, just very shiny and revitalised. Even though it is quite pricey, you can often find codes on voucher cloud where you can get money off so you’ll never be paying full price for such a fabulous product.

Hope you enjoyed my first post on the new self-hosted site! It’s been quite an exciting week for me and the blog, I won’t ramble on about it on here as I have enough all over my social medias, haha! Links are here for Twitter, Instagram and Facebook if you don’t follow me already! What’s your MUST-HAVE hair product for keeping yours shiny and volumous? I’d love to know!
’Til next time,

    This sounds amazing, but I’m worried the scent will be too strong for me. I do need a nourishing hair treatment though so might give this a sniff when I’m next in store to see if I can handle the scent, ahha! Great review lovely x

      The smell is honestly so lush to me but if you don’t like bananas I can imagine it being overwhelming! Thank you 🙂 X

    The hair mask sounds absolutely gorgeous I love the smell of banana too! It’s a shame that these aren’t vegan though and that you found the condition to be really thick. Thanks for sharing x

    These products sound so amazing! I have dyed blonde hair so it’s kind of damaged (and so is my skin haha), I’ll have to get stuck into body shop and see what I can find as it’s becoming more and more popular!

      Thanks girl 🙂 not many people have as TBS don’t tend to promote their haircare stuff until recently, it’s fab though! Xx

  14. 12th August 2017 / 2:51 am

    I am a product junkie. I love trying new products. This sounds so amazing. I’d love to try this one day.

      It is a super lovely range 🙂

  15. 12th August 2017 / 8:12 am

    I love the new packaging! This product sounds really good, but I am a little worried I wouldn’t like the scent? I haven’t actually tried anything with a banana smell, but I feel it might be a little over whelming for me? Might just have to pop into body shop to give it a little smell!xo

      12th August 2017 / 11:33 am

      I honestly think it’s lovely, it’s deffo a sweet banana smell, I love smelling like it haha! X

      12th August 2017 / 1:34 pm

      You should try it out, girl! X

  16. 14th August 2017 / 10:40 am

    I was literally just thinking about buying this so thank you for writing this post. I absolutely love the sound of this, I think smelling like banana’s all the time would be amazing. I just ran out of my hair butter the other day so I’m looking for a new one. Great post lovely x

    • blacktulipbeauty
      14th August 2017 / 4:46 pm

      It is honestly such a gorgeous range and you will not regret it the smell is INCREDIBLE. Thank you! X

  17. 15th August 2017 / 11:44 am

    I used to love the banana range, and swear by it, but the last ones I used wrecked my hair. It left me with lots of tiny knots, and my hairdresser said my hair has never been worse. I’m gutted as this was my go to! Great review, and I’m glad they work for you xx

      No way, that’s so odd! I could never imagine this stuff doing that to my hair, it’s so softening! Xx

    I love the Body Shop’s products so I definitely want to give these a go some time x

  19. 19th August 2017 / 7:47 pm

    I’ve heard a lot of good thing about this range! I’m not sure whether to get it because I’m not keen on banana scented products! I love how nourishing the conditioner sounds though, I’ll have to pop into a store and see if I like the scent!

    This is so good to know! I only ever use frizz ease because my hair is mad frizzy and everything else i’ve tried makes it furious with me.
    Good to know i can actually try something else for once!

      21st August 2017 / 11:43 pm

      I reckon you’ll really benefit from this then, especially the conditioner! X

  21. 24th August 2017 / 12:18 pm

    I’m obsessed with the smell of banana products – I currently have a banana shower gel at my boyfriends that I adore! These look and sound absolutely amazing, I really need to try some Body Shop products out! ?
