Burt's Bees Shampoo

I am generally a big fan of the Burt’s Bees products. So when I recently had my virgin hair highlighted through a double process of foil bleaching and toning, I decided to try Burt’s Bees first for color saving and moisturizing products. I hate to say it, but they let me down in this department. I tried the Burt’s Bees Green Tea Color Keeper Shampoo and Conditioner Burts Bees Color Keeper Shampoo and Conditioner Review. According to the Burt’s Bees website:

“Green Tree Extract provides natural UV protection to maintain vibrant hair color, while Fennel Seed Extract helps neutralize processing chemicals and Jewelweed protects and repairs.”

The Burt’s Bees site also mentions “luxurious lather,” which was the main problem for me. The hair lightening process opens up the cuticle of the hair to allow color to penetrate. The result? Well, despite the increases in technology in hair color, a certain a certain amount of damage occurs. For me, my once absolutely normal, not too oily, not too dry, very soft hair, became a bit dry and easy to tangle. I have fine, but thick hair, which also increases tangling issues with me. So when I tried the Burt’s Bees, I found that it sure does have “luxurious lather.” This stuff lathered more than any shampoo I have used in years. I normally like lather, but with the change in my hair, all it did was create a mess of tangles. Then, when I used the conditioner, I found that it was not quite thick or nourishing enough to get the tangles out and make my hair feel conditioned. I had to use handfuls of the stuff and was still pulling out hair when trying to detangle it. Needless to say, I was not happy.

On a side note, I was well aware of the many benefits of green tea, including UV skin protection. But I was unaware of its potential to protect hair color. There does seem to be some support for that. The Burt’s Bees shampoo and conditioner  also has an interesting green tea/herbal scent. It might work better for those who actually do not have dry or color treated hair, but want some prevention from UV rays. Also, while I won’t be using the shampoo again, I tried adding a bit of the conditioner as a rinse after conditioning with another product. As a light conditioning rinse I didn’t mind it, and I think I will try that in the summer in order to get a bit of green tea UV protection on my hair. So it wasn’t a completely wasted purchase.

    Yeah, I’ve tried lots of products too but the Bees seems to be the best, especially when compared to other natural products. I was pleasantly suprised when my skin remained very soft and clear after cleansing my hair. Other products dry my skin. I also read that they contain chemicals that may be harmful to the skin, inside and out. I currently own Color Keeper and Super Shiny. I have to say, though, that Super Shiny conditioner made my hair a bit oily and wasn’t easy to get through my hair. I also don’t like the scent. So I use Nature’s Gate clarysage conditioner, Volumizing. I recommeded Super Shiny to my aunt, and even when I don’t color I will continue to use Color Keeper because it smells so good. I don’t like how More Moisture smells, though;it’s a bit too strong. For anyone needing non-chemical cleaners, please give Burt’s Bees a try. It lathers oddly but you get used to it, and although you may need to wash twice, it smells great. I actually enjoy washing my hair. I like bubbles and I love how I smell after.
