I was first introduced to The Body Shop when my mum visited Saudi Arabia in 1997 and she bought blusher , eyeliner and a pencil lipstick. My mum was always a minimalist and make up isn’t her forte so I remember being in awe of the cute packaging and her purchases. Taking into consideration I was 10, and fashion and make up was not high on my list of priorities.
My love affair with The Body Shop began as I got older, with the wave highlighter blush being one of my first purchases. I love testing out the different products, and I can spend tons of time in the store.
The Body Shop loyalty card is also a great incentive and their sales are also worth your while as you are bound to come across a bargain.
As I have decided to grow my hair , I also spend a lot of time taking care of it because the worst thing is long untidy hair. So when I visit beauty stores I always look though their hair care sections.
While browsing through The Body Shop recently , I came across the RainForest Radiance Hair Butter treatment, the thing that got me interested was the word butter as The Body Shop is famed for its Body Butters which are very nourishing. They had a buy two and get one free promotion, so I bought the RainForest Radiance detangling spray and a hairbrush as well.
I tried the hair butter for the first time yesterday, and yes it lives up to its name. It must be applied on damp hair for at least 5 minutes, and be washed off with warm water. Another plus is that it smells amazing. This treatment can be used weekly or more often If your hair is very dry.
After towel drying my hair it is usually knotty and I end up getting irritable when combing it out. The detangling spray worked like a charm, it is actually a leave in conditioner that leaves your hair soft and manageable. After drying my hair I am usually prone to a little frizz but after using the product there was minimal frizz.
Both the Rain Forest Hair Butter and detangling spray come in variants for coloured or uncoloured hair.

The hairbrush is one of the best grooming purchases I have ever made. It has bamboo pins which are gentle on your hair and scalp. The pins massage and stimulate the scalp.
