“ Brand: Clairol / Type: Conditioner / What it does: Refreshes, „
Before I begin I must advise you that this review is actually about Clairol Herbal Essences Moisturising Conditioner, I have put it here as I could not find the exact product match and Dooyoo are not currently adding new products. I am a sucker for freebies and when I recently came across a link for free trial bottles of Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner I jumped at the chance to apply. If you are interested in claiming your free bottles I will leave details on how you can obtain them at the end of my opinion. I have tried both the shampoo and conditioner but today I have chosen to write about the conditioner. The sample conditioner that I received is called Herbal Essences Moisturising Conditioner for Normal Hair. It is made by Clairol and contains Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Jojoba in Mountain Spring Water. The sample sized conditioner is contained within a 45 ml bottle, which is a good size as it allows you to try the product at least 3-4 times to see if it actually suits your hair - I've found in the past that the free trial sachets I have been sent by other manufacturers don't really contain enough for me to form an accurate opinion about the product and its' suitability to my hair. The product is packaged within an opaque cream coloured plastic bottle which is sealed with a bottle green coloured screw top lid. The front of the bottle has a transparent sticker attached to it which advises the consumer of the manufacturer, the product name, the hair type that the product is suitable for, the product size and a list of the main herbal ingredients contained within the product. The reverse of the packaging again contains a transparent label which this time advises the consumer of the full list of ingredients, the manufacturer contact details and brief directions for use. All text is written in the same bottle green colour as the lid and this compliments the cream coloured bottle very wel
l and gives the product quite a natural looking appearance. To use the conditioner you should first shampoo your hair, rinse clean and then apply a small amount of conditioner to wet hair ensuring that you massage it right through to the ends of your hair. The conditioner is also a cream colour, similar to the bottle colour, and has a good thick, creamy consistency which smells lovely, the perfume is quite strong but not overpowering and left my hair smelling fresh and clean for at least the duration of the day. I found that immediately I began to apply the conditioner to my hair it began to feel instantly softer. Unlike some conditioners with this product you do not need to wait for the product to work, once applied you can rinse it straight off, it rinses out quite easily too - I have found with some conditioners that I'm still trying to remove all traces of the product 10/15 minutes later - I am pleased to advise you that Herbal Essences conditioner is easily washed out within a couple of minutes. A small amount of conditioner goes a long way - I have very long hair, (bra strap length), and this I believe that the sample bottle is likely to last me for 3-4 applications, obviously if you only have short hair you most likely will find that it lasts a lot longer. Once I had rinsed the conditioner off and towel dried my hair, I was pleased to note that my hair seemed to be almost tangle free and that a comb quite easily glided through my hair - normally I have a major knotting fiasco which takes me ages to sort out. I have long, thick, very dry, often uncontrollable, frizzy, coloured hair and have frequently found in the past that whilst other conditioners leave my hair feeling softer they also leave it looking lank or very static. Although this product is advertised for normal hair I was very pleased with it as it left my hair feeling much softer, moisturised, shinier, easier to manage and best of all not a
t all lank or static. I would highly recommend that you give this product a try - even if you only send off for the free sample just to try it out. If you are interested in obtaining your free samples you need to visit the Herbal Essences website and register.

I will definitely be buying this when my sample has ran out. Thank you for reading. Julie
I’m high on herbs. NO, NO, NO.You got it wrong. When I say high I mean, high because my hair is on the top part of my body. (I shave everywhere else) The herb part comes from Clairol herbal Essences conditioner. I am quite sure a few of you know I am a Pantene freak. Organics was a total waste of time and money for me. Tried it (rubbish) So it was back to pantene. BUT a few weeks ago I went on one of those freebie sites, were you get free samples, and lo and behold, what came through my letter box last saturday. A free minature bottle of herbal essence conditioner. After Jamie (my beloved hound) had, had a chew of it (it wasn’t to his liking taste wise) I decided to give it a go. I will just have to just say, they also sent the shampoo as well. I’ll first give you a quick description of my hair. Fine, coloured, full of mousse and hairspray. I am at the moment trying to grow it a bit longer, so you can imagine when you get to that in between stage, were it just looks a total mess. Ok so I opened the shampoo (but I’m not talking about that) washed my hair. Now I came to use the conditioner. A pale creamy/ yellowy plastic bottle with a green lid. On the front of the bottle in green writing are the words Clairol Herbal Essences, and other info conditioner/normal hair etc. I plonk a blob (a creamy/yellowy blob) on to the fingers of my left hand, as you do, I then dip the fingers of my right hand into the blob, I squiggle my fingers together and then reach for the ends of my flowing locks. (yeah right) more like straggly strands. WARNING::::::::::Don’t put conditioner on your scalp. It is really only meant for the ends of your hair (the dead, dry ends) If you do rub it in all over it tends to drag your hair down. It makes it seem kind of lank and greasy after one day. Were was I? Oh yes the conditioner had a pleasant fragrance, a bit like the
fresh sea. Surrounded by lush green palm trees. (I know that is an odd way to describe it) It wasn’t to gloopy the texture divided up very easily. I mean to say it seemed too coat each strand of hair evenly. I know you want the results. Yes I could comb my wet hair with no tugging. (I sometimes get knots) When I dried my hair, it seemed to have a thickness and fullness that I don’t often achieve as my hair is so fine. I was well pleased. Even my hubby said my hair looked more shiny and thicker today. (I was honoured) I honestly can’t say if it was because I used both the shampoo and conditioner, or whether it was the conditioner alone. This week when I do my weekly supermarket shop. It will be on my list. I can’t tell if my hair went in need of a wash, more quickly than when I use Pantene as to me they both seemed equal to each other.I would recommend it though. I will also buy it again for sure.So now I’ll just give a quick run down on other maybe boring to some facts. The particular sort I used was for:- Normal Hair. It did contain natural, organic herbs and botanicals. It did moisturise and condition my hair to a satisfactory level. What was in it? Aqua,Cetearyl Alcohol,Behentrimonium Chloride,Cetyl Esters,Dihydroxypropyl PEG-5 Linoleaminium Chloride,Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine,Parfum,DMDM Hydantoin,Citric Acid,Methylparaben,Propylene Glycol,Anthemis Nobilis,Buxus Chinensis,Aloe Barbadensis,Propylparaben,Diazolidinyl Urea,CI 19140,CI 15510. I know it was not tested on animals. If you have any queries or complaints contact:- Bristol Myers Co. Ltd Uxbridge UB10 8NSU.K I think the average price for this in most major supermarkets is about £2. For a regular sized bottle. As I said I had samples off a freebie site, but this week I will be buying some more. Thanks for the rea
d. Happy hair days gill.
