The Body Shop Truly Nourishing Banana Hair Mask Review - Winter Hair Care

The Body Shop Truly Nourishing Banana Hair Mask Review - Winter Hair Care

I've finally had my hair cut after a good few months of growing it out, and it really feels so healthy and shiny now that all the split ends have been banished. And after all the bleaching I'd done to it at the beginning of the year, I'm on a personal mission to keep it in the best condition I can as I continue to grow it longer - a task that's no easy feat when you consider how drying the cold weather is, and how tempting it can be to straighten your hair all the time when it's exposed to the elements during winter. So when I stumbled upon The Body Shop's Nourishing Banana Hair Mask, I thought I'd give it a whirl!

Drawn in by the vibrant yellow packaging, I added it to my shopping basket most due to the unusual banana scent - I mean how often do you honestly see banana scented products for sale? Unless I'm blind to them, I really haven't seen any, which I think is pretty strange considering what a delicious scent it is. I know it can be a bit of a Marmite thing, you either love bananas or hate them, but it really takes me back to creating banana-based hair and face masks in my teens - without all the mess!

Like any hair mask, it's applied after you've shampooed and conditioned your hair. You leave it for 5 minutes (or longer) and then rinse it all out.

I have to say I didn't find the banana scent to be that strong (in comparison to some of the other Body Shop's fruity scents!) until my hair was dry, when I got the full effect of the product. My hair was silky to touch and combed through a hell of a lot easier than usual. Is it a wonder product? Probably not. It doesn't do anything extra special, though I did find my hair has definitely not been quite as frizzy after blow drying as it usually is. The scent lasts, my hair is soft and I like the idea of it being a fruity, natural product. I may even give the shampoo and conditioner a try when I next need to stock up.

Honestly though this product doesn't do anything that any other hair mask would, it's just a little different to me because of the scent. I'd definitely recommend incorporating a hair mask into your winter hair care though to just inject some much-needed moisture back into the ends. 

So if you're looking for tropical, piña colada-esque hair, that's smooth and nourished, then give this product a go. But if banana just isn't your thing, I'd look elsewhere! 

Until next time..
