      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great smelling shampoo

      I love useing this shampoo because it smells delicious. When leave the bathroom and someone walks in there after I shampoo my hair all that they can smell is my shampoo.

      It is made my Clairol and in the shampoo there is cornflower, aloe vera and cherry bark extracts. It purify greasy roots by removing excess oils and it nourishing dry ends and enhancing body and lift.

      Most supermarkets sells herbal essences shampoos but sometimes I do find it hard to get the greasy roots one. Most of the time I get it from Tesco because I know they sell it in there. It is cheap to buy it is about £3.00 for 400mls. Most of the time they are on a buy one get one free or 2 for £5.00.

      It smells really nice and when you lather up your hair it gets stronger. It lathers up nicely and it is very easy to rinse out.

      When I opened the shampoo it had a lovely fresh smell. My hair felt really soft and nice and when I brush my hair it was really easy to do.

      It has a flip top lid so it is easy to use. There is a lot of other shampoo and conditioners in herbal essences. If you wanted a nice smelling shampoo I would say buy this one. They do it for all hair types so there will be one out there for you.

      It comes in a blue bottle and I think that the old bottles are better then the new bottles because you can hold the old bottles. You can also buy the conditioner.

      I would tell anyone to use this shampoo because it smells really Flowery and it leaves my hair nice and soft.

      Thanks for reading

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great shampoo if you want hair that is fresh and full of life

        Description

        This is a regulating shampoo from Clairol Herbal Essences, designed to rectify the problem of greasy roots and dry ends. It contains cornflower, aloe vera and cherry bark extracts, and is supposed to gently purify greasy roots by removing excess oils and build-up, whilst nourishing dry ends and enhancing body and lift.


        Pros

        - It's relatively cheap at around £3 for a 400ml bottle, or £2 for a 200ml bottle.
        - It smells amazing. Flowery but not in a girly way, it's more of a crisp, fresh, outdoors kind of scent, but it really is beautiful. And the scent gets stronger as you lather it up and then stays in your hair for ages after using it.
        - It lathers up brilliantly giving a really thick and luxurious mass of bubbles. You don't need to use a lot of the shampoo as it lathers up so well.
        - It cleans the hair really well and both my hair and scalp feel really refreshed after using it.
        - It rinses out easily.
        - It really does what it claims it will do. My hair after using this is fresh and light even at the roots where it normally can feel a little oily. It feels really bouncy and full of life, and looks shiny, smooth and healthy.


        Cons

        - The packaging is not great. The lid breaks easily and also can be quite fiddly to open.
        - It's not easy to find in the shops. Many of the major places like Boots and Superdrug don't seem to stock this variant even though they do have all the other Herbal Essences shampoos. I eventually found mine in Tesco of all places!


        Summary

        A brilliant shampoo which leaves hair clean, fresh, bouncy and healthy, and for a very reasonable price too!

          does what it says

          I have heard of the Herbal Essences range for ages. They are usually advertised on the TV often. I was looking for a change in Shampoo and lots of people said how good this brand was.

          You can buy this in 200ml bottles and 400ml bottles. The look of the bottles are quite standard. Thet are see through plastic and you can see thie light blue gel through the bottle. On the sticker on the back of the bottle there is some blue flowers, and you can see this once you get down the bottle. It has a green flip plastic lid.

          The shampoo has Cornflower, Cherry Bark and Aloe Vera to regulate your hair. It says it Gently purifies greasy roots by removing excess oil and styling build up, enhances body and lift and nourishes dry ends.

          I think the average price for this is £2 for the 200ml and £3 for the 400ml, but I got the 400ml bottle for 99p in Superdrug. Bargain!

          The smell f this is ok. It is not floral, more like a watery kind of smell. You can smell a bit Aloe Vera, but none of the other ingredients. A little of this gel lathers up good and goes a long way.

          So does it work? well it gave my hair shine and cleaned it well. it still got greasy on the 2nd day, as my hair always does, and i'm not sure if it dramatically changed my dry ends, but it was a good product and I will use again

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I'd recommend it!

          I recently had a fringe cut into my hair that needs straightening to look anywhere near decent - as a result it does tend to get greasy quite easily, compounded by my nervous habit of running my fingers through and playing with my hair a lot. As a result, I popped into Boots in search of a shampoo that would combat this, and I stumbled upon Herbal Essences, which just happened to be buy one get one free.

          This particular variety claims to help those with greasy roots and dry tips, and to top this off it smells absolutely divine - a mix of cornflower and cherry bark, which is really quite enticing! To top that off, it really does work - whereas I found my hair getting greasy within 24 hours with my old shampoos, I can easily go for 48 hours on one shampoo without my hair getting too greasy, even when it's been straightened and fiddled with quite a lot.

          I do find that shampoos tend to lose their effect so to speak when they've been used a lot, but as I've only been using Herbal Essences for a few weeks, I've yet to figure out if this is true for this as well. It's left my hair feeling soft, looking shiny and smelling lovely for now, so I have absolutely no complaints - if its managed to calm my greasy fringe, it really is a miracle worker!

            This shampoo is amazing! I tried James Brown London's EXPENSIVE shampoo because of a great review - it's nothing compared to this! It makes my hair feel smooth and healthy without being greasy. I also never use conditioner on the top of my head or near my scalp because i find this makes it greasier more quickly. this shampoo is a great find!!

            The best Herbal Essences Shampoo so far!

            I am just sitting here catching up on a few read and rates and I happened to run my hand through my newly washed hair, which feels softer and healthier than usual.

            As I have just started on my next set of matching shampoo and conditioners from my Christmas stocking fillers, I figured that must be the reason for the new softness.

            Ooh I feel the urge to write a review coming on! LOL!

            The shampoo in question is Clairol Herbal Essences Regulating Shampoo which I have used with the matching Conditioner.

            This shampoo comes in a clear plastic bottle, which is easy to hold onto in the shower, with a green flip top. The top of the lid is circular but the underneath has a straight edge as though a sliver of the circle has been cut away. This means that flicking the container open in the shower is made much easier. I bet it was a woman who had that brainwave..... pause for shrieks of 'sexist' from the men!

            The front of the bottle has the words 'Clairol Herbal Essences Regulating Shampoo - Greasy Roots / Dry Ends - Cornflower Aloe Vera Cherry Bark'. The label on the back has a picture on the reverse of it showing cornflowers so that the picture shows through when you look at the bottle from the front if you see what I mean. Anyway it does mean that it looks pretty on the bathroom shelf.

            The shampoo claims to 'revitalise your senses in a world of botanical bliss, invigorating and luxurious, this fragrant shampoo, exclusively blended with 100% organic botanicals, will leave you feeling refreshed and your hair at its most beautiful'.

            Maybe this is advertising speak but to be fair this is a very nice shampoo and it does the business.

            It is pale blue in colour and to use it I just had to squeeze a bit onto my hands and massage into my hair. The shampoo lathers well and soon my head was a mass of bubbles and yes, I would describe them as luxurious as they feel thick and creamy. I don't need to use much as our water is very soft and I do only have short hair.

            The fragrance really is lovely. I can certainly detect the smell of aloe vera but presumably this one is enhanced by the smell of the cornflower and cherry bark. I can't say for certain what the blend is but it does smell really fresh and flowery.

            The bubbles wash out easily enough but then I do shampoo my hair under a power shower. I then use the matching conditioner to finish off.

            The results with this shampoo and conditioner were somewhat different from normal. To be fair my hair is in good condition as it is quite short and fairly think in texture but this shampoo makes it feels REALLY soft. In fact if I had to blow dry it into a complicated style I think it might well be too soft straight after washing. As my hair is in a simple style just brushed back from my face the blow drying was easy enough and my hair has an amazing shine and it smells lovely and fresh.

            There are the usual warnings on the back of the bottle about not getting the stuff in your eyes and washing it out straight away with cold water if you do.

            The list of ingredients is very long so there are a fair few chemicals in there!

            The 400g bottle currently retails at £1.75 in Boots and they are on offer at buy on get one half price. Boots often have offers on these products so if you like them wait for an offer and stock up!

            This is definitely one I shall be using again - yes, yes, yes! LOL!
