Rainforest Balance

For those of you who follow me on twitter I posted a remark letting you know as to whether or not I would recommend shampoo from The Body Shop's Rainforest line.
Let me just tell you ALL, twitter or not that yes in fact I do recommend it.

Generally I tend to wash my hair every other day, or every day depending on my needs, situation or mood. If I'm out and about for a stroll through the mall, I might skip a day, but if I'm working up a sweat during a workout, well...you do the math.

I find that most of the shampoos and conditioners available on todays market are pumped full of so many chemicals it literally weighs my hair down and leaves it a greasy oily mess, hence the necessity to wash my hair every other day/every day. By the 24th hour, gone is the bounce and softness and is instead replaced by something that looks like it'd been lost in the bush for weeks, oiliness sets in and then the itches start. Sound scary yet? It was for me.

Then I tried The Body Shop's Rainforest Balance Shampoo/Conditioner designed to restore balance to oily hair and was pleasantly surprised.
Though I'm a full believer that in order to achieve cleanliness you need a good lather, Rainforest Balance Shampoo doesn't lather as well as I would have liked, but it leaves you with an impressive squeaky clean feeling, not to mention your hair smells like an invigorating rainforest, fresh and natural. They're(shampoo and conditioner) both silicone, sulphates, parabens and colorant free. They're respectful to the aquatic environment and meet a very strict biodegradable standard, minimizing the use of non sustainable packaging resources.

With their Community Trade Aloe vera, Seaweed and Nettle extract, the program helps to sustain trading relationships with disadvantaged communities around the world providing incomes to over more than 25,000 people across the globe.

It's got my vote!

*FYI*
Keep in mind that what may work for me may not work for you and therefor provide different results.

Any views, opinions, or recommendations are based simply on the fact that I have tried said products with my needs/desires in mind. Your needs, likes or dislikes may be different. 




Look how healthy my hair looks.


The color is so rich!



And it looks great outdoors too.




Of course my day wasn't complete without taking a few fun photos of random things.

This was my shadow in the sunset.


I took a close-up while I was playing around with the settings on my camera.


I wore these cute flats because I was trekking through the bush and didn't want to break an ankle in heels.


Camera used: A Nikon D90



Peace and love until next time.
