The hair care gods are looking very favorably upon me. I have had two good scores in as many weeks. I struck lucky with Early Delights Tropical Rain shampoo and now I've struck gold with Burt's Bees Pomegranate and Soy Conditioner ($7.99). Actually, I had begun to think the gods had abandoned: my locks had been limp and lifeless for a while. So I pounced on Burt's conditioner, which touted that it would "transform fine, flat, lifeless hair into thick and voluminous hair with extra body". And, by Zeus, it did!

What makes me even happier is that this conditioner - as does its sibling, the shampoo - contains moringa seed extract. This plant is fascinating. It is a natural cleanser that works by coagulating pollutants - pulling them into clumps, that can be disposed of. Moringa is absolutely packed with potassium, iron, vitamin A and zeatin. Zeatin a powerful cytokinins that helps promote small cell size, a key component to more youthful skin. Moringa not only contains thousands of times more zeatin than any other known plant, it is also the most nutritious plant discovered to date, with over 90 nutritional compounds including 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatories.

Moringa is also in a shampoo by REN that I have enjoyed using and which is considerably more expensive than Burt's. Furthermore, we aren't sure if REN is going to continue this line. With soy amino acids and pomegranate, Burt's Bees proves to be a cost-effective alternative.

    One more comment, I found the shampoo lathers up wonderfully. I have used other organic brands that just did not lather at all. Nice. I also enjoy the fragrance.

    OK, I have fine, color treated, straight hair. Usually volumizing shampoos dry my hair out. With fine hair other shampoo and conditioners are too heavy. I have a new favorite in Burt's Bees Very Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair looks better than it has in years and before I only used salon hair products. I have volume, and my hair is shiny and manageable. Plus, "what a bargain"?

    Odd, I thought the shampoo didn't lather much at all. It was kind of annoying, actually. Then again I've only used it once for the first time today. I'll give it another try and see if these products really do what they say. =P

    Both are very nice! Adds a bit more bounce (not vavoom volume) on days you need it. I especially like the lathering of the shampoo. The suds pick up some air and create lathering volume! Nice contrast to some of the organic, eco-friendly poo's with low suds.
