A few weeks ago I was sent the Herbal Essences Bio Renew shampoo and foam conditioner for free to try, thanks to Influenster! The first thing I noticed with this product is the delicious scent – it’s so fresh and light! On their website, Herbal Essences describes the scent as “delicate notes of ginger, floral bouquets and clean musk.” The shampoo is light as well. It lathers nicely but is not heavy and my hair feels clean after using it. I love that it is clear and so is the packaging, so you can really see when you are running low. The shampoo I had before is in solid packaging so I can only guess how much is left by how light it feels which can be a bit annoying.
The Herbal Essences conditioner is what I was most excited to try because it is not a traditional conditioner but a foam conditioner. The bottle looks like a can of hair mousse and it dispenses exactly the same way. The directions say to use a palm-sized amount and apply from root to tip. Once you do that you feel it absorbing into your hair. It is very easy to rinse out; does not have the slippery feel most traditional conditioners have. The product boasts more volume with using a foam conditioner, as it is lighter and doesn’t weigh down hair. I personally really like the foam. This particular scent/formula that I use is for fine hair, but they have other scents available including: White Grapefruit and Mosa Mint, Green Tea and Cucumber and Rosemary and Herb.
The Herbal Essences products are also good for color treated hair, which I have. And it has no parabens which is important to me when selecting a product. I definitely notice that my hair is shinier after using the product.
So my final verdict is A plus! Even though I received the product for free, I really do enjoy it and would definitely purchase once I am out of it. So if you are in the market for a new shampoo/conditioner or even just want to try out the foam conditioner for yourself, I’d highly recommend the Herbal Essences line!
