After reading about SLS being bad for hair I bought a small bottle of the Body Shop rain forest shampoo for coloured hair. I usually use Wella from the hairdressers but that has SLS in it. I've used the rain forest once so far and my hair looked a bit dull after. Is this normal and should I persevere? I like Liz Earle skin care so was wondering about her hair products too which are natural. Has anyone used this? Or is it better to stick to the hair salon stuff?

I tried it and thought it was rubbish. I have really hard water and my hair just feels heavy and, yes, dull afterwards.
I've found Jasons, Daniel fielding and palmers (as in cocoa butter but there coconut or shea hair range) far better and about the same price.

I love it. My thick coarse hair is much tamer and I have no allergic reaction on my scalp. I'd say it takes a good half dozen if not more washes to get used to it though, persevere if you can, it's worth it

I have thick, frizzy hair and bought this after so many MNetters had eulogised about the stuff. Despite using it a good few times now it has made sod all difference - I am going back to my silicone-laden shampoo.

I use L'Oreal Everpure shampoo and conditioner.It's SLS free and works really well.

I use the Rainforest one as a detox when I want to dye my hair.

Ginger one is nice (I have very short hair) but I think it feels a bit 'squeaky' until I rinse it.

Liz Earle is nice, but I found the shampoo alone was meh . the shampoo+conditioner was lovely (and smells gorgeous)

I didn't get on with it either, I persevered and used the whole bottle but my hair felt heavy and lank and never really clean. Same with the L'Oreal Everpure. I've found Dr Organic by Holland and Barrett very good, and am using a Lush shampoo and conditioner at the moment which are also great. I ditched silicones about 5 years ago, I try and keep to gentler or no sulphate shsmpoos too, but not as strict avoidance as with silicones.

I hated it. Hair was dull, lank and coated. Loved the Everpure though and gutted they don't seem to do it anymore.

There are much better SLS free shampoos out there.

I hate it as well. I use Giovanni and it is so much better.

Hated it. Left me with a greasy patch and residue.

I find I have to really scrub and rinse when using it. I use it on my 3 year olds hair, no problem.

I love it. I especially like the fact it's cheap via O2 priority discounts.
