Reader Review: Herbal Essences 2 in 1

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Herbal Essences have this month launched 2 in 1s to its volume, colour and straight hair care collections.

Colour Me Happy: Made with a gentle formula to help provide colour protection against damage, dryness and dullness.
Body Envy: Infused with body-building formulas for luscious volume and movement.
Dangerously Straight: Which helps achieve straight smooth, radiant locks, even in high humidity conditions.

I am always sharing with you what I think about products. I thought it was about time that I find out what YOU thought about a product. I recently asked if there were any readers that would like to test a new shampoo – but did not tell them what the brand or the name of the product. Three readers were shipped the new Herbal Essences 2 in 1, in their hair type, to test and provide us with their honest opinions.

They were asked to use the following scale: Poor, Satisfactory, Good, Very Good, or Excellent. Here is what the readers thought:

Overall thoughts on Herbal Essences:
A great affordable 2 in 1 hair cleanser. For when I’m late and don’t have time to use a separate conditioner thats wastes another 3-5 minutes, I just rub a hair serum over which takes 10 seconds and gives silky hair which the Herbal Essences can not deliver on its own. I did wish the smell was a bit stronger. It is a lovely scent that someone mentioned I smelled like the beach – only when close enough to notice it.
Would you buy it? Yes

Andrea from Vancouver tested the new 2 in 1 Body Envy
Look of packaging: Very good
Smell of the product: Excellent
Feel of product: Very good
How clean was hair after washing: Very good
How conditioned did hair feel after washing: Good
Price of $2.99: Excellent
Overall thoughts on Herbal Essences:
I’ve tried Herbal Essences in the past (the original shampoo and conditioner), and I found that their products made my hair quite greasy. Using their shampoo, I would have to wash my hair daily. I have fine, long hair, so I can’t use anything that makes my hair frequently oily. I was a little apprehensive when I first opened my package to see an Herbal Essences shampoo sitting inside; I didn’t want to go through with washing my hair every single day again and having the feeling that my hair is perpetually oily. However, one sniff of the shampoo lured me into trying it that very night. The scent is a light, melon-y scent that is quite fresh. It’s the perfect shampoo scent for summer. The effect of the shampoo pleasantly surprised me because it didn’t leave my hair feeling greasy at all; it left my hair with a nice, clean finish, and my hair was soft and smelled delicious. On certain days, I can go for more moisture, but overall, this shampoo is fantastic.
Would you buy it? Absolutely

Anna from Edmonton tested the new 2 in 1 Dangerously Straight
Look of packaging: Excellent
Smell of the product: Excellent
Feel of product: Excellent
How clean was hair after washing: Good
How conditioned did hair feel after washing: Satisfactory
Price of $2.99: Very good
Overall thoughts on Herbal Essences:
I’ve used Herbal Essences before, and I love their products. They have great smelling products that are well set to the right consumer. I have their product for volumizing and color treated hair. I find them to be just as good as salon products. I get great volume with their volumizing shampoo and conditioner. And I get super soft hair with the color treated shampoo and conditioner.
Would you buy it? I wouldn’t buy the 2 in 1 shampoo by Herbal Essences. It just doesn’t cut it for my hair type. But I definitely would continue buying their other products.

Well there you have it. Thanks to Hoan, Andrea and Anna for trying the Herbal Essences 2 in 1s. Have you tried them? What do you think?
