Which is the best - preferably available on the high street as it is for my mother smile

Having said that, If there is a particularly good online brand I am looking for Christmas present ideas!

Body shop?

SoupDragon Thu 29-Nov-12 12:45:18

There were mixed reviews on the Body Shop website which put me off a bit, although I may go there tomorrow to have a look.

There's one called Happy Hair Days that is SLS free. I got some from Sainsburys and it was about £5 a bottle. Bargain cos' I had been getting a £25 one which still irritated me.

There's different shampoos and conditioners for whatever hair type and so far I have been ok using it.

The NAKED range, you can get it in Boots?

Body shop shampoo and conditioner has completely changed my hair . I haven't paid full price yet though. If you sign up online you get loads of discount. Both times I have got 35% off ! smile

The naked range for me was horrid .. All sticky .

SoupDragon Thu 29-Nov-12 13:16:28

You see, "sticky" was more or less what the negative reviews said about the Body Shop range. Gah! I thought this would be simple grin

I'm currently using the Dr Organic range, which I get from Holland and Barrett. It has cleared up the scalp psoriasis I have had for two decades but my hair seems a bit lifeless (not sticky, though, which was my complaint about the Naked range).

My hair is not sticky with body shop stuff . You can but little bottles to try .. I guess sit depends on your hair .. Mine is thick and curly / probe to frizziness.

Another vote for 'Happy Hair Days' I have used a lot of different ones but this is by far the best and actually lathers really well, the ginger is my fave.

Pancakeflipper Thu 29-Nov-12 13:58:44

Ooh I do the ginger one Gobblers! It's like a normal shampoo isn't it? Big froth.

And the conditioner is great for my dry big frizz

Green People. But it's pricey. I love it and I have sensitive scalp.

SoupDragon Thu 29-Nov-12 14:07:37

Great suggestions so far thanks smile There is a Boots, Body Shop and Sainsbury's in town so I can look in there tomorrow and maybe get her a selection to try.

Also going to look at online suggestions but i do want her to be able to buy them herself when out shopping so, in that respect, Sainsbury's and Boots are the best options.

Loads of offers on body shop website .

Faith in Nature available in health food shops, Oxfam, amazon etc, lovely range, lots of choice. Free delivery on orders over £10.

My dc like the chocolate range of products they do, but the seaweed, hemp a& meadowfoam are good too.

I have just bought the pomegranate - haven't used it yet.

Looking for similar things myself I can buy locally, so it will be interesting to know what you think when you've tried something.
