I just used the Rainforest brilliant shine conditioner in a mix with VO5 and it was pretty good. Of course it was only a mix, but it still seemed good. I looked the ingredients up and Bodyshop have them listed on their website: Points for that!
COSDNA's analysis of it is pretty good.
But I was extremely confused over the product containing salicylic acid!
I know why salicylic acid is used in skincare products: It makes cells in the upper layer of the skin shed faster, and helps clogged pores return to normal. So it's an exfoliator that also works in the pores.
But is that an effect you want on your hair?
My first thought was uh. No, not really.
A little more research revealed that salicylic acid is used in shampoos to treat dandruff for the same reasons. And that yes, you might actually want this in your hair product.
Since I dont use shampoos, maybe this is why I haven't realized this before.
Since I tend to get a bit of dandruff around autumn because of the change in humidity and temperature, maybe I should actually use this particular conditioner to CO?
I haven't seen any conditioner (Well, any product actually) containing salicylic acid before, so it's worth a shot.
