About Me

My photo
45 year old partnered with the love of my life, with a 28 year old daughter, 23 year old step-son, 19 year old step-son, 16 year old step-daughter, a 9 year old step-son and a 4 1/2 year old son. I now have 5 male cats and 1 female bunny that I adore. I had to rehome 2 kitties last September and 2 kitties passed away in November so things have been sad this past year. I love contests as I'm sure you can tell. I also love tattoos, looking at other peoples' and getting my own (I've had 17). I met the man of my dreams, living right next door! We plan to get married this year and to homestead within the next 2 years.

Herbal Essences Hydralicious - Review

On Feb. 25, I received a heavy box by courier and I was intrigued. I couldn't imagine what it was. When I opened it, I was pleasantly surprised to find, 6 bottles of shampoo and conditioner from Herbal Essences...the new kind, Hydralicious, with the swirls. I opened every one to smell them all, of course! LOL!
They all looked so pretty and smelled so nice. I was to try each one and write a review. I was also to pass out coupons to all my friends so they could try this wonderful new product as well. I called everyone I knew and told them that I was one of 200 picked to try this out. Didn't I feel special? You bet!
Well, I only wash my hair twice a week because it's half way down my back so...it's quite a process to wash it, as you can imagine.
I tried the Herbal Essences Hydralicious Featherweight Shampoo and Conditioner - orange swirls in the shampoo - first as this is supposed to give your hair body. Not that I much need body as I have lots as it is but I wanted to try all the products to be fair. I thought that I would need a lot of shampoo considering the length of my hair but I was pleasantly surprised. I took what I thought I would need, a handful and it was too much. I had suds galore. It had a pleasant citrusy smell. Even with all the suds it was easy to rinse out.
With the conditioner, I took less after the shampoo incident and it was very silky feeling. It had the same scent as the shampoo. It too rinsed out easily. It didn't leave my hair feeling weighted down.
After my hair dried, I noticed that I had a lot of body but this isn't the product for me because with all the body I already have it was too much. For someone with fine hair and no body, this would be perfect.
I next tried the Herbal Essences Hydralicious Self-Targeting Shampoo and Conditioner - pink swirls in the shampoo. It smelled faintly of berries and almonds to me, as did the conditioner. I was able to use less, knowing that I would get the suds that I needed off a smaller amount. It really works well to provide suds and scent. Both rinsed out easily and once again didn't make my hair feel weighted down.When my hair was dry, it looked so curly, people were asking me what I had done to my hair. It was less flyaway and looked so much more healthy.
Lastly, I tried the Herbal Essences Hydralicious Reconditioning Shampoo and Conditioner -purple swirls in the shampoo. The smell of these reminded me of fruit and coconut. No problems with the amount to use as this shampoo suds up like crazy and the conditioner is so silky, it just rubs right through your hair. Yet, you don't feel like anything is left on your hair once you are done rinsing, as sometimes happens. Just clean and soft feeling hair. Again, when my hair was dry, it was curly, less flyaway and more healthy looking.
I must say I was really impressed with these shampoos and conditioners because with only washing my hair twice a week, I am often left with dry feeling scalp and no scent left on my hair but with this product, this just didn't happen. No dry, itchy scalp at all and people were commenting on the scent, days after I had washed it, saying how nice it smelled. Where else can you get a product that you don't have to use a lot, with scent that lasts for a long time? It was a pleasure to try and review these products.
