Read on to know if this The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil is a winner or just goes to the list of “not-so-good” products.

My experience with The Body Shop Rainforest Coconut Hair Oil


It comes in a usual 200 ml bottle with a flip top cap. It is quite travel-friendly and easy to use. Gently squeeze the bottle to dispense oil into your palm. Massage the hair oil into your hair like your usual hair oil routine. Avoid direct contact with eyes. Use twice a week or as often as desired.

Colour and texture

It is a colorless liquid and has a non-sticky viscous texture.


It has a mild floral fragrance, smells nothing like coconut oil


Me being the body shop fan, I purchased this product with the hope of growing my hair longer and stronger. The product description clearly said “with regular use, this luxurious oil will leave the hair feeling stronger, smoother and softer without drying the scalp”. I used this once every 3 days but noticed nothing more than a little softer hair. It didn’t make my hair stronger nor did it reduce hair fall. Virgin coconut oil not just makes hair smoother but helps battle hair fall and dandruff since it contains all the essential fatty acids. But this product was a huge turn off for me. I have never really had rough hair so this product didn’t make any difference to me. I feel ordinary coconut oil that is obtained from copra (dried coconut) works way better than this. That is because the coconut oil will be 100 percent pure and will have multiple benefits. This nourishing oil has 99 percent natural ingredients and the 1 percent ingredient list is nothing about coconut oil. I was not at all happy with the product and will never purchase it.

Indeed meghal.this being extra virgin coconut oil, it should help to a great extent. The store person also told me this is a great product,but it just didn’t work for me.
