Burts Bees Very Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner

Here at Pixiwoo we love big hair so we are always keen to try anything that will give our locks a bit of oomph.
 I had never tried Burt's Bees hair products before and I really like the idea of using natural products.
 This Shampoo and conditioner is Sulfate free, paraben free and has natural fragrance.

The shampoo which contains Pomegranate, jojoba, soy protein and thyme oil among other ingredients smells lovely. Almost like a bubble gum scent.
Using it in the shower I found it never really foamed up, obviously this is because it contains no sulfates but I have to admit I do like a good lather when washing my hair.

The conditioner which also contains pomegranate along with avocado oil and jojoba smells slightly more earthy and not quite as pleasant. I don't have particularly thick hair but felt I had to use a lot of this to feel like it was conditioning my hair. Usually I can run my fingers through my hair after applying conditioner but I couldn't with this conditioner. I'm guessing this is because there are more natural ingredients inside which won't de-tangle as much as regular conditioners.

What were the results?
My hair did feel soft and shiny but still quite dry at the ends so I think I would need a more intensive conditioner or separate treatment for the ends.
 I didn't notice a massive volume increase, maybe a little but I think it was because it was a little knotty still.

If you like to buy natural shampoo and conditioners and have a normal to oily hair type this would be a good buy but if you have a dry hair type or unmanageable hair this may not be intensive enough.

 The shampoo is £7.95 and conditioner is £7.84. Both are available from



  1. That's a shame! I have curly hair so I think like you said i would need something a little more intensive!


  2. I tried these and wasnt overly impressed either. They were usable but i definitely wouldnt buy them again x

  3. I always feel a bit meh about Burts Bees except for the peppermint lipbalm. But I have had a few different products from their ranges and have never been overly impressed. I like the idea of the brand though so its a shame.

  4. This seems pretty disappointing from Burt's Bees I would expect better results from such an acclaimed company!

  5. I have oily hair and I didn't like both the shampoo and conditioner at all. It still felt like there was a thin film of residue left after cleansing.

  6. Burt's Bees shampoos and conditioners give all-natural products a bad name. They're terrible! Like, across the board awful. I'm very disappointed in Burt's Bees since they sold out to--is it Johnson & Johnson? One of the big corporations anyway. (Googled it: It's Clorox that owns it.)

    Nature's Gate makes great all-natural products that work beautifully--and they're relatively inexpensive. I pick them up at my local hippie-dippy co-op, but the label's also in French, so I'm assuming they're available outside the U.S.

  7. To bad it didn't work out for you, but I also find that natural shampoos and conditioners never provide enough moisture for me.

  8. I haven't tried burts bees before but I am really happy with the live clean hair products. I have been using them for about 2 years now and they are also organic. I find the lather and condition quiet well.

  9. The old BB volumising shampoo was amazing - sweet smelling and amazing value - I only use it on my roots because its too drying for the length of my hair. However - they changed the formula and ingredients - not only is it ineffective, it made my hair fall out!

    Steer clear of this new formula - there's no kind way of stating this .., it sucks !
