Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner. It appears that these products are exclusive to Asda, which is where I picked them up when they were on special (2 for £5 offer). Onto the review!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo is quite nice. It’s boring to look at (it’s one of those creamy white shampoos), but it feels cleansing without being harsh. The cocoa fragrance is pleasant, although I would have preferred a more chocolatey fragrance. It’s not Herbal Essences’ fault, but I just expect something chocolatey whenever I read cocoa (am I right, Anne Brooke?)…

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Conditioner is good, but not great. I love Herbal Essences’ original hair products, so I’m expecting this brand to be better than the competition. Whilst this conditioner helps me detangle my hair, and whilst it does make my hair feel soft, I do need quite a bit of product to achieve the desired result. The conditioner smells a bit “darker” than the shampoo. It smells like cocoa powder with a hint of incense. It’s not bad at all, but I really wanted a chocolate-scented hair care combo.

Herbal Essences Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter Strength Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml for £4.50 each. I don’t think I’ll repurchase these 2 products, but I wouldn’t mind recommending them to people with normal hair.

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner which I picked up for £1 (Poundland).

This conditioner promises to nourish hair for a more youthful look.

The product is quick and easy to use – use it like any regular conditioner, but leave it on for 2 minutes.

How’s the product? I like it! Whilst I think that Pantene’s Youth Protect shampoo and conditioner aren’t impressive at all, this intensive conditioner is very nice!

I’m not sure about the “youthful” look, but I’m satisfied that this product makes my hair feel super soft. I like it!

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner is available as 200ml. I would definitely recommend it!

Daily Defense Pomegranate And Vitamin E Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about the hair products I’m using at the moment – Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner. Daily Defense is a Canadian brand, and they state that their products are cruelty-free. This is great! Now let’s focus on the products. 🙂

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo is very nice. It’s low in sulfate, but it lathers up perfectly, and it cleanses my hair gently. The fruity fragrance is a bit random, but I like the shampoo very much.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Conditioner is very effective. It detangles my hair with ease, it makes my hair feel soft and silky without weighing it down. Again, the random fruity fragrance is rather unspectacular, but in all other aspects this is a great conditioner which mops the floor with comparable products from brands like Pantene or Garnier.

Daily Defense Pomegranate Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 473ml each. I paid £1.25 each – a total steal!

Gliss Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner with keratin serum and micro-repair liquids. These products are aimed at people with long hair that’s prone to damage and split ends.

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo is really lovely. It feels great on my head and hair, and I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair gently. I also love the fragrance – it’s similar to Gliss’ Liquid Silk fragrance, just a bit lighter and fruitier. It’s very nice!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner is a very good conditioner. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky without weighing it down. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

I am very happy with these 2 products. After Aussie’s below-average Colour Mate conditioner and L’Oréal’s terrible Fibrology Air anti-conditioner, these 2 Gliss products are a real treat. They make my hair look and feel awesome. My hair is bouncy, soft and glossy. I love it!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available for about £1 each at Poundstores and bargain stores. I would recommend these products to everyone who’s looking for hair products that make hair soft without flattening it. I will definitely buy these hair products again!

L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Air Volumising Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about L’Oréal‘s Elvive Fibrology Air Volumising Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner. These products are aimed at people with fine and flat hair, and they promise visibly thicker looking hair. I’ve been using these products on and off since mid June, so here’s what I think.

L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Air Volumising Thickening Shampoo is really nice. It’s clarifying, it feels great on my head, and it smells wonderfully fresh and pure. This is a great shampoo!

L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Air Volumising Thickening Shampoo is not a great product. I call it “the mop maker” because it’s anti-conditioning. It turns my hair into a knotty mess and it makes my hair feel dry and mop-like (but not thicker). The only thing that helps is using a small amount of Herbal Essences conditioner right after this conditioner is rinsed out. By the way, the conditioner doesn’t smell great. I’d say it smells like the bathroom cleaner version of the shampoo…

Based on my experience, I would recommend the shampoo, but I wouldn’t recommend the conditioner. However, if you’re interested, L’Oréal‘s Elvive Fibrology Air Volumising Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for £4.99 each. I bought these products when they were half price at one of the drugstores. 😉

Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Aussie’s Colour Mate Shampoo & Conditioner with wild peach extract. These two hair products for “vibrant, coloured hair that refuses to be dull” promise a gentle cleanse to make sure colour is retained and hair is extra shiny.

I think the shampoo is decent. I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair and my scalp well. It doesn’t feel drying and the fragrance is alright (nice enough, generic, forgettable). In summary, this is an average shampoo.

The conditioner is below average. It helps detangle my hair in the shower, but it doesn’t make my hair feel soft or silky. I’ve never had dry hair, but thanks to this conditioner I think I’m halfway there!

In addition to the dryness, I’ve also noticed that my hair hasn’t been as glossy as usual. So based on my experience I’d say that these 2 products don’t deliver on their promise at all, and I won’t be buying them again. If you think these products are good, I recommend you try other products. Cheap brands like Alberto Balsam do much better products!

Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo (300ml) & Conditioner (250ml) are available for £4.19 each. I paid £1.95 each (special offer).

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Sukin Purifying Shampoo

Hi there! Today’s post is about Sukin‘s Purifying Shampoo.

This shampoo, which is aimed at daily washers and all hair types, contains lots of natural ingredients like aloe vera leaf juice (which is listed as the 2nd ingredient), nettle, horsetail and burdock.

The product promises to cleanse, nourish and soften any type of hair, and to be gentle on sensitive scalps.

I’ve used the shampoo for a few times now, and I think it’s OK.

This shampoo doesn’t contain SLS, but it lathers up well. However, it doesn’t feel very cleansing, so this isn’t the best shampoo for post-gym use (believe me, I tried).

The fragrance is very sukin (= the product smells like the sum of its ingredients which is nice).

I will continue to use this shampoo once a week (and followed by a deep conditioner). However, I don’t love it, and I don’t think I’ll miss it once it’s gone, so I won’t be buying it again.

If you’re interested, Sukin‘s Purifying Shampoo is available as 50ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1l. Sukin also offers a matching conditioner.
