The Body Shop – Rain Forest Moisture Shampoo Review

Today I will be reviewing my First “The Body Shop” shampoo which is also a part of my Tiny Birthday Haul. I was slightly confused on which version of Rainforest shampoo to try as I have Oily scalp with dry hair and also has the recurring dandruff issue. So, I asked the SA and he suggested me the Rainforest Moisture Shampoo.

I already own The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter and quite liking it.


Product Claims: Gently cleanses to help restore moisture and improve the hair’s softness without weighing it down, for a smooth and shiny finish.
No silicones, no sulphates, no parabens and no colourants.

  • Best For Dry Hair

Packaging:- The shampoo comes in a simple cylindrical shaped translucent plastic bottle with a flip-top cap. The cap locks tightly and you can easily carry this shampoo along without worrying about its leakage while travelling.  The packaging is sturdy and hygienic to use.

My experience with The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo:-

It is light brown colored liquid with runny consistency. First thing that caught my attention (nose) about this shampoo is its super-awesome fragrance. It has strong herbal smell but that doesn’t bother me as it is very pleasing and I absolutely love it.

I used it over my heavily-oiled hair and was pleased to see how effectively it cleansed my hair. Instead of going for a large amount in single application I used the shampoo in small-small quantities multiple times . At first, it didn’t have any lather but as the hair starts getting cleaner (with 2-3 applications) the lather began to show up. It also works great when lathered first in a mug with a little amount of water and then poured over the scalp.

It removed all sorts of oil and dirt from scalp giving a squeaky clean feeling but at the same time restores the moisture of my dry hair strands. It brought back the shine to my dry and dull hair strands without weighing them down. Apart from making them softer and shinier it also added a noticeable volume to them. It gave a very natural feel to my hair and made them alive again.

I didn’t felt the need of following with a conditioner but if you have extremely dry hair or using it on unoiled hair than use one.
