Fairly Traded Honey
Lather up for shiny, lustrous locks
Over half of this shampoo consists of Fairly Traded honey, which is beautifully moisturizing and gives hair shine and luster. All that honey has allowed us to make this one preservative-free, too! While 50% is honey, 20% is linseed mucilage, which has a lovely texture and is moisturizing and conditioning. Fairly Traded Honey is suitable for almost everyone, but with all these moisturizing ingredients, it is specifically lovely on hair in need of moisture.
- Hard water? No problem! This shampoo softens and cleanses in a perfect balance for hard water areas, where calcium build-up can be harsh on your hair.
- Preservative-free! All that honey allows us to make this one preservative free. What an excellent invention! Use it fresh!
- Fairly Traded Honey:We're working with a supplier in Zambia at the moment, but we'll need so much honey that we may also buy from other Fair Trade suppliers around the world, too.

Q:I'm a black female with locs, and I would like to know if this product will work on may hair.Asked on 1/31/2015 by Renee from Brooklyn, NY
A:I recommend checking out Fairly Traded Honey shampoo, as I know several people with dreadlocks who use it because it's very moisturizing and doesn't leave any residue behind. Also check out Big Solid conditioner as a wash out treatment once and a while.Answered on 3/22/2015 by Alexander from LUSH Direct
Q:Because of the honey, will this shampoo lighten brown hair at all?Asked on 1/15/2015 by hobnobber from Colorado
A:The honey will add great moisture to your hair, but it shouldn't strip your color away.Answered on 3/21/2015 by Lana from LUSH Direct
A:Not at all! But it will make it edible soft and luscious so watch out around bears!Answered on 1/15/2015 by Anonymous
A:It hasn't lightened my very dark brown hair or my husband's moderately dark

Q:Does this product have an expiration date?Asked on 9/26/2014 by Erica from Wayne, NJ
A:Yes, this product does have an expiration date. Our shampoos have a 14 month shelf life, and the expiration date should be listed on a separate round sticker on the product label.Answered on 9/27/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Is this product suitable for kids 2 and 5 years? if not, which product is recommended?Asked on 11/14/2013 by FT
A:I'm not a doctor or a chemist, but recommended restrictions on eating honey are usually limited to children under 12 months; perhaps you could extrapolate other applications to this advice. I found the shampoo mild and not overly fragrant. Remember to shake it before every use too. As long as you did a patch test and were with them shampooing their hair, and were careful not to get it in their eyes, I don't see why not.Answered on 11/15/2013 by Anonymous
A:While we don't use ingredients that would be considered "harmful", we always recommend that you check with your physician when using any of our products on young children, since their skin tends to be more sensitive in general.Answered on 11/15/2013 by Kayla from LUSH DIRECT
Q:Is this product sulfate free?Asked on 9/3/2013 by RC
A:The Fair Trade Honey shampoo is not sulfate free, it contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate.Answered on 9/20/2013 by Laura C from LUSH Direct
Q:Is this safe to use on color-treated hair?Asked on 5/14/2013 by Starbucks Diva from Dallas, Texas
A:We only have one product that has been tested on color treated hair: "Blousey;" however, softer shampoos such as "Fair Trade Honey" tend to be alright! I would recommend staying away from products with a lot of salt, such as "Big," or products with high citrus content--as both salt and citrus naturally strip hair and would wash out the color much quicker.Answered on 9/27/2013 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:YES! Sodium Laureth Sulfate is perfectly safe for color-treated hair. I use Fair Trade Honey all the time, and my hair couldn't be shinier. It also feels cleaner then when I used a "sulfate-free" shampoo.Answered on 6/20/2013 by KP from Harwood, MD
Q:Is this safe for color treated hair? If not, which shampoo would you recommend?Asked on 2/6/2013 by Liz from Boston, MA
A:Fair Trade is soft enough for colour treated hair, but it has not been tested on it. We currently only have one shampoo which was designed specifically for use on colour-treated hair, and that is our brand new Blousey shampoo. It's very gentle and super hydrating so it will not pull out the colour as quickly as our other shampoos might. It contains lots of bananas and nourishing butters which will leave your hair extra soft and smooth.

Q:Is this good for color treated hair?Asked on 11/24/2012 by jeanfrances
A:I asked this same question on Facebook and they said it should be gentle enough. This for me made my hair dry. If you are really concerned about it being color safe, go with Blousey it is great.Answered on 2/4/2013 by Dancingbarista89 from Oregon
A:Fair Trade Honey shampoo was created to provide a lot of moisture while gently cleansing the hair, so it should do the trick! If you're looking for a shampoo designed specifically for colour-treated hair, Blousey is your best bet!Answered on 3/12/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
