Has any 2's used or using it?

I searched on here not so much info but more towards the 3/c/4 forums...

I bought it just now at CVS only because I'm running out of my DevaCare LowPoo and even though I wanted to try GTTT I ended up getting this because I was reading the ingredients and it looks pretty good...


(((I asked CVS if I can return it in case I didn't like, they said as long as you have a receipt so I'm sticking to it just in case)))

Seems CG to me...?
Ingredients: water, decyl glucoside, sucrose laurate, betaine, glycerin, coco-glucoside, glyceryl oleate, sodium cocoyl hydrolyzed soy protein, coco-betaine, lauryl glucoside, fragrance, citrus grandis (grapefruit) seed oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, citrus nobilis (tangerine) oil, citrus medica limonum (lemon) oil, citrus aurantium amara (petitgrain) oil, hydroxypropyltrimonium honey, glucose, citric acid, xanthan gum, sodium chloride, phenoxyethanol, glucose oxidase, lactoperoxidase


SHAMPOO: really lathers up and it squeaks! Like the clean feeling much better than deva low'poo.

CONDITIONER: not rich at all, very watery, gentle for a cowash or even as a leave-in.

PROMISES: Super Shiny. Haven't really payed attention to it but it did turn my hair a bit lighter...

I guess I am finishing both bottles but nothing out of the ordinary. Am a fan of the Shampoo :)

    I used to use that very Burt's Bees 'poo. In my Fotki (I think) there are still pics of hairs in that 'poo which are not being damaged by it - in that short run.

    I liked it. I used it in summer when I get a lot of dust and pollen in my hair and rinsing alone doesn't work. I used the conditioner too.
    Shampoo: Good cleansing, lots of bubbles. Probably drying for dry hair, was not for mine. Stopped using due to an allergy to the preservative.
    Conditioner: Light, okay for cowashing, not bad as a leave-in. Could build up on my hair, not necessarily anybody else's.

    Burts Bee condish are staples in my shower. I use the grapefruit super shiny condish and the green tea one as well. Good CG condish IMO. I have not tried their shampoo.

    My HG products: BSRG, HE Totally Twisted Mousse, Burts Bee's green tea condish, Burts Bee's Super Shiney grapefruit condish

    I used the Burt's Bees Fragrance-Free Baby Shampoo -- I have a new-found sensitivity to fragrances, and decided to try this one. I didn't know that I was sensitive to essential oils and extracts, and maybe high concentrations of detergents (which this had in it), so it made me itch badly and I've since stopped using it. From a non-itchy curly girl standpoint, it wasn't that bad. For my very dry scalp and hair, though, it was quite drying (I've heard this from a lot of people about the Burt's Bees shampoos), and it gave a very nice lather. It did clean well -- maybe a little too well in my case ;) -- but it just wasn't for me. I was glad I gave it a shot, though -- it's so all-natural, it's great! :) I hope it works out for you!
    Type 2c/3a with lots of hair and a super sensitive scalp! Med/slightly coarse texture, low porosity and elasticity.

    Low poo: Organix TTM, Essential Wholesale Free & Clean
    Stylers: EcoStylers, GF Curl Shaping Gel, Aussie Aussome Volume Mousse & Instant Freeze Gel, GFPC, LALNC, La Bella Lots of Curls, Apricot Oil, KMFUM, AO B5DG
    Extras: sugar scrubs, AVG washes, pre-poos with EVCO, oiling scalp before washes, plopping, gelatin PT.

    I used Burt's Bees shampoos early on in my CG journey (it was only October, but seems like 10 years ago : )

    I found it extremely drying. It made my hair really frizzy and undefined. It was awful actually. I gave it to my husband, who notices nothing when it comes to shampoo, but he didn't like it either. I love and use many other products Burt's Bees, but the shampoo didn't work for me at all (tried the Grapefruit and Baby).

    Hair type: 2b
    Texture: Fine
    Density: Medium (yet crazy-huge volume)
    Porosity: Normal
    Elasticity: Normal (I think....)
    Oily scalp
    Low-poos: CJ Daily Fix; AO Green Tea Clarifying
    Co-washing: Tresemme Naturals Conditioner
    Conditioner: As needed
    Styling: FSG; KCCC (winter favorite); CJ Curl Fix; CJ Coffee Coco Curl Cream Lite; BSRHG (a MUST)

    Current obsession: Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing Conditioner
