REVIEW: The Body Shop Banana Shampoo And Conditioner

I have never ever liked to eat bananas... Never! My dad swears by them but he could never get me to eat them but the day I laid my eyes on the TBS Banana shampoo and conditioner, I am seeing bananas in a totally different light... I might even venture into buying a dozen when I go fruits shopping the next time... Ha ha!

I have severely dry and frizzy hair and yes you may call them damaged as well, I will not take offense to it :P But they have been tamed to quite an extent when I started using the TBS RainForest Shampoo and Conditioner duo... I was really happy with it until I smelled the Banana Shampoo on one of my impromptu visits to TBS. It was love at first smell. Literally! I didn't buy it then cause I wanted to first finish my RainForest range and well needless to say, the day it got over, I rushed to TBS and got me these beauties :)

The Banana shampoo and conditioner look similar with a slight difference in their consistencies. They both look like freshly made banana shake and smell like a banana flavored bubblegum. There is just no way that you will not like the fragrance. Its just so glorious.

Shampoo wise, its a great mild shampoo and really really tames my frizz and makes my hair all soft and smooth. The day I started using this shampoo and conditioner duo, I haven't had to "flat-iron" my hair... My hair as is looks so smooth... And ladies mind you, it's the monsoons with Pune receiving rains like never before!

Price wise, it is one of the more reasonable products from TBS and hence I have nothing to complain about :P

Oooohhsss And Aaaahhhhsss!!!
1. It smells heavenly.
2. It leaves ones hair really soft and smooth
3. It even tames frizz (during the monsoons even)
4. One of the cheaper products of TBS (Touchwood)
5. Bottles are made out of 100% recycled plastic
6. Washes off easily and doesn't leave any residue on the scalp
7. HG shampoo and conditioner material.

 None that I can think of.

It costs INR 515/- each for the shampoo and the conditioner.

Yes! I think I have finally found my HG shampoo and conditioner duo!

Would I Recommend?
Definitely! If you are struggling with rough and frizzy hair, then this is the shampoo for you my firend :) If you are environmentally conscious then you would love to know the fact that the shampoo and conditioner bottles are made out of 100% recycled plastic.

Overall Rating:


  1. Hey, I also have frizzy, rough hair, and oily scalp... which do you think is the best range fro me: banana or rainforest?
    you review was quite convincing!

    1. hmmmm you could surely give this a shot though these aren't SLS free like the Rainforest Range is...

  2. Sounds nice..Is this SLS free too like the Rainforest Range ?

  3. seems like a very gud product!!!! am getting it!!!thanks suma!!!

  4. i want to try it for the long time now but then its not SLS free and thats what stops me because they feel nice on hair but in long run they do harm to hair - for my hair, its the case..u know any SLS free shampoo other than Rainforest?

    1. forest essentails! its sls free! that i what the store manager told me!

  5. I have the banana conditioner and I think its too light for me... I have a normal scalp that has dandruff, and gets greasy in 1.5 days, and hair dryer than a broom! I use TBS ginger shampoo and banana conditioner... I suppose the ginger shampoo is drying... I should try banana with some other shampoo probably....

  6. How about cucumber instead of banana. I heard that banana helps only to avoid dark circles where cucumber makes your skin soft.

  7. I picked this up on your reco Suma and loving it. My frizz ball hair are so much softer and shiny :D

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
