Green Tea….For Your Hair

Body Shop

Fuji Green Tea – Refreshingly Purifying Shampoo



I have been loving the Body Shop recently. From hand creams to skin care, it’s one of those brands that feels expensive but isn’t…

One of the things I hadn’t tried from Body Shop was haircare. I’ve always been very loyal to the likes of L’oreal and Aussie but honestly, I was looking for something new. One of the reasons I was on the lookout is because after using the same product for a while my hair becomes used to it and the shampoo or conditioner starts to lose the desired effect.

I decided to go and have a look at the store in Birmingham, Grand Central before catching my evening train home from work. Whilst browsing and picking up many other things you’ll soon hear about, one thing that did catch my eye was the Fuji Green Tea – Refreshingly Purifying Shampoo. I loved the packaging, along with a lot of the new-ish ranges it’s bold and simple.


If I’m being completely honest, I feel like the smell is something I had to get used too. I know some people may love it from the get go but for me, I like sweet or more floral scented things. I can’t explain the smell, it doesn’t smell like any green tea I’ve ever drunk but I feel like this may be more based on pure sencha tea from Shizuoka, Japan as opposed to my Tetley’s Lemon Green Tea.

I do, however like this way my hair feels after using this shampoo. It’s a little knotty, but a tangle teaser sorts that out. After blow drying though, it feels soft and so healthy. Considering I dye my hair a lot, my hair looks so much better than it should.

If you’re looking to treat yourself, without breaking the bank I’d definitely recommend this. It feels indulgent, the scent is nice when you get over the initial sniff. Also, I didn’t mention, but a little does go a long way. The shampoo is a gel consistency and literally, a between a 5p and 10p size blob does the job! Even for someone like me with super thick hair. I maybe wouldn’t recommend this to someone who has naturally knotty hair because it does take some work.

I’d definitely repurchase, but I’d also like to see which other scents and formulas they have available.

Let me know what haircare/ hair treats you’re loving in the Winter season!!


  1. Hi. The shampoo Sounds interesting, however Iam abit fussy on smells👃.
    Is there a conditioner to go with it?
    I do try not to use too much conditioner but feel I still need it every other wash.
    Please let me now how the conditioner is (if you have tried it)
    Looking forward to hearing about your other purchases.
