The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. Audrey Hepburn
Hair is the first thing someone notices about you.Make it worthwhile and your hair shine !
I have been struggling with managing my hair for a long time.But I luckily stumbled upon the brand Herbal essences this month.So I wanted to share my thoughts on this product and some tips for curly hair too.
About the brand
It was launched in 1971 and owned by Procter and Gamble .A lot of thought goes behind each haircare product from the brand.Their aim is to use nature’s essence and deliver products which cater to each hair type.The Bio Renew line has ingredients researched at the London botanical gardens.Each product is studies by 500 professionals,scientists and then brought to the market.
Herbal Essence Coconut milk Bio renew Shampoo
This variant aims at hydrating the hair .It has 0 parabens ,colorants or gluten.The shampoo is lightweight in texture and white with a brownish tint.The smell is mildly coconut and fruity fresh smelling which lingers on the hair till 2-3 days.
The Antioxidants help in the purification of the hair and renewal of scalp.Additional benefit is that its ph balanced ,100% safe for color treated hair.But the formula has SLS(sodium laureth sulphate).
The MRP is INR 600 for 400ml which is mediocre priced.There is a current offer where you get it for 450 only.
It comes in a standard plastic bottle brown in color .The instructions and ingredients are clearly mentioned on the bottle along with the expiry dates.
The shampoo will freshen up your hair .For curly hair I use it from my scalp to mid lengths.2 coin sized amount of product is enough for mid length hair.The shampoo produces medium amount of lather ,enough to clean your scalp and hair.A quick tip will be to always use a t-shirt to dry your hair .I recommend to use it twice a week.Always dilute your shampoo in water so that it absorbs better and spreads evenly.The shelf life is of 36 months which is great.It will serve you good for 2 months.

Herbal Essence Coconut milk Bio renew Conditioner
This is one of the crucial steps of hair care.Conditioning not only restores moisture back in the hair but it actually prevents hair color from fading.It also helps in detangling the hair and acts as a pollution barrier helping in protection of hair.The coconut milk conditioner does it all in one wash.A little bit goes a long way for this product.

How to apply for curly hair –
I take 2 coin sized amount of product and scrunch it in my mid length and ends.Then I gently massage the product in my hair strand by strand and wash it with cold water after 15 minutes.I always wipe the excess water with a soft cotton t shirt and let my hair air dry .
I saw a natural shine in my hair after using this product .The hair was not weighed down or became greasy.It felt fresh and lasted for good 3-4 days after the wash.
