      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great product with a lovely smell. Great for damaged hair as it hydrates your hair.

      I have been using this shampoo for a couple of months now.

      Despite not being keen on the smell (and taste!) of honey or apricot this smells lovely - so don't be put off by the 'flavour'.

      The ends of my hair have been dyed, despite this the overall condition of my hair has improved since using herbal essence shampoo. I also have used the conditioner and hair mask and those too are great.

      This doesn't make my hair greasy like some shampoos can and the matching conditioner is great too.

      I definitely recommend this shampoo. It does miracles on colour damaged and heat damaged hair. It leaves your hair feeling silky and pampered and smelling oh so fabulous.

      I cannot rave about this enough. Such a lovely product, very affordable and great for all different hair types. It really is something to buy and it is available in most shops.

      Buy it when you see it!

      New favourite hair shampoo for a fussy hair lover!

      Despite disliking the annoying advert that plays every 5 minutes, I had to try the new Bee Strong range, especially when Boots where offering 2 for 1!!

      I have fine, long hair which is prone to split ends and have dry, frizzy ends. I'm constantly on the lookout of the best product to restore moisture to my hair and am very picky about the products I use. I do research thoroughly before applying anything to my head ! It was hard to avoid reading reviews on the blogosphere about Bee Strong range!

      I have used Herbal Essences in the past, however I did veer back towards my Pantene favourite for a couple of years just because I felt it made my hair feel nicer. That being said, I was excited to try Herbal Essences again after reading such great reviews!

      So firstly, this shampoo smells gorgeous! It's hard not to when it's made of honey I suppose, but it's managed to avoid smelling artificial or too sweet. However smell can only get you so far...

      The main reason I love this shampoo is simply because it works ! I always use a matching conditioner to my shampoo, so I do have both in this range and am a bit biased because I wouldn't dare shampoo my hair without conditioning it afterwards (it would be far to hard to handle when you've got long hair!) So I can't say which works best, the shampoo or the conditioner, but as they work in tandem, both work great!

      My only gripe about Herbal Essences is the bottle shape. When the shampoo starts getting a little bit empty you really have to make the bottle become a contortionist in order to get product out! It is more noticeable with the conditioner than the shampoo as it is thicker, but both are hard. It makes it feel like you end up wasting the product because you just can't squeeze it all out. However they are bringing back the classic Herbal Essences bottle shape, so I hope this gets added to the range!

      Fantastic product

      When it comes to hair care, I usually stick to Umberto Giannini, but as a student I find I'm now having to budget my money a little better. I was attracted to the Bee Strong range from Herbal Essences through the television advertisements, and I decided to try the products out as I have quite a bit of combing damage to my hair due to constantly dragging brushes through my hair and throwing it up in a ponytail for the gym. After only a few weeks I noticed that my hair looked a lot sleeker, with less short broken bits of hair. Months later I've noticed that my hair has maintained this improved smoothness and now appears much less damaged when I take my hair out of the usual ponytail. The products also smell great, not sickly as you'd expect a product containing honey to smell. I will definitely continue to use these products.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      As good as a professional shampoo.

      When it comes to shampoos, I am quite loyal to the brand Aussie. However, I do like trying out new hair products, especially when they are on offer. I needed a new shampoo for when I stay over my partners house. (His manly shampoos just don't work for me). I had heard great things about the new range from Herbal Essences - 'Bee Strong'. I had been meaning to pick a bottle of this up, but kept forgetting to.

      When we were browsing the aisles in Tesco, I noticed that this range was on offer, and I just had to pick up a bottle of the shampoo. The 400ml bottle of the shampoo retails at £3.89 which is quite pricey, but it is a big bottle and does last a while. Thankfully, I picked it up for half price which is a winner for me. This is sold in most supermarkets and drugstores such as Boots and Superdrug.

      The bottle comes in a huge bottle which is a yellow/gold shade of colour with a green lid. It is the same style as all other Herbal Essences products. I am not entirely sure if this is going back to the old style like all of the other ones seem to be. I have tried various Herbal Essences shampoos before and I have found them quite hit and miss, so was not too sure what to expect with this one.

      The first thing I noticed about this shampoo was its lovely scent. It contains honey and apricot scents, which as you can imagine is just lovely. It is a sweet scent but without being too overpowering, and I really like the smell of it. I also find that when you have washed your hair and dried it, this scent lingers and it is just lovely.

      The shampoo itself is a nice consistency, and has a thickness to it. It lathers up really well, and washes out with ease. I have quite long hair, and I found that you do not need much of this to deliver a thorough wash. I found that this was quite a nourishing shampoo, almost like a 2 in 1 conditioner aswell. There is a conditioner available in the range as well, but I feel like this does enough on its own.

      After using this shampoo, I couldn't believe how great a condition my hair was in. It felt silky to touch, and it just looked so healthy! I have never achieved results so good from such a bargain shampoo! I also noticed that it had a lovely shine to it. Really pleased with the results, and could not fault this at all. Have been using this regularly now, and have had no problems such as product build up.

      Overall, I am really pleased with this shampoo from the Bee Strong collection from Herbal Essences. It has lasted me ages, and I will certainly be buying another bottle of this. I am chuffed that I got this for half price, but I would happily pay the full amount for this shampoo. Thanks for reading and hope this helps.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      super strong hair

      As an avid fan of the Herbal Essences range, I find myself constantly trying their new products and even old favourites too. One of the recent ones I have tried is the Bee Strong range in Herbal Essences. The Bee Strong is based on honey so it smells luxurious just like all of their other products and the main aim of the Bee Strong shampoo (and conditioner) is to make your hair stronger and more resilient to everyday life.

      I found myself in need of this particular product as my hair felt really dry and damaged after heat styling too much and it felt absolutely awful. I purchased the Be Strong shampoo as well as the conditioner form my local Asda where they have a current offer on all Herbal Essences products two for £4 which I think is a pretty good deal.

      Using the shampoo is very straight forward as with all shampoos. Simply squeeze a dollop in your hand then lather up on your head. The shampoo feels quite creamy and rich and your dont need that much in order to get a good lather. For maximum results usewith the conditioner. I also bought the hair mask which does wonders for my hair too.

      Even after one use, I noticed a difference. My hair felt really dry and brittle before I used this product and once I was drying my hair it felt beautifully soft and silky and back to its original state which I was more than happy with, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone suffering with dry and brittle hair.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great budget friendly shampoo

      I bought this shampoo after a recent dye job left my hair feeling rather dry and in bad condition. I knew I had to put some moisture back into it but as my hair is normally greasy I didn't want something too moisturizing. Preferring to pick up something cheap, I decided to try this Herbal Essences shampoo and if I needed to I could invest in something more expensive if it didn't work. Well, I haven't bought another shampoo since!

      This shampoo is aimed at targeting damaged hair, which is definitely what mine is after dying my hair blonde at home. I must say I hadn't very high hopes for this shampoo, wondering if something at this price could compete with the more expensive brands, but I'm overwhelmed at how good this is.

      The shampoo is creamy but lathers really well and leaves my hair feeling really clean, which is strange for such a creamy consistency. My hair feels much stronger and more resilient after only 2 weeks use and I don't have to wash it everyday with this shampoo as it doesn't leave my hair greasy! Altogether, I'm super impressed with this shampoo, if it were £10 I would be happy to pay the price because it does what lots of other shampoos don't do, do what it says on the outside.

      For those of you with heat damaged, coloured or processed hair, I really recommend this!

      Bee good and get me a bottle of this

      I bought this Herbal Essences Bee Strong shampoo after reading so many good reviews of it on here.

      I bought a 400ml bottle of this from Wilkinsons and it cost me £2.25. There were cheaper shampoos, and even cheaper Herbal Essences shampoo available, but like I say, I have read good things about this and decided to give it a try.

      The bottle is yellow gold in colour and it is the normal curvy Herbal Essences shape that all their shampoo bottles are. The lid is bright green on it so it does stand out from all the others in the range which is good.

      I squeeze some shampoo put and the first thing I notice is the colour. It is very rich yellowy gold, almost with a green tinge, and I don't actually think it looks that appealing. The shampoo is thick and has a really pearly sheen to it.

      Secondly, the smell. Yes, you can certainly smell the honey! Not sure I can smell the apricot extracts within it, but no matter. The honey is lovely and rich but not too sickly. Sadly though it doesn't linger on my hair once dried as long as I would have liked as the smell truly is good.

      So after washing and towel drying, my hair does feel stronger as when I am combing through I am sure there is less hair breakage on the comb.

      Once my hair is dried it feels good and sleek and silky. I will certainly use this again!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I like it, as does my son

      I have to be very careful when I buy hair products, as I have suffered in the past from a couple different scalp problems - this can result in my scalp becoming flakey and very itchy, this is when the problem is mild - at worse it can drive me to distraction and I will itch my scalp all day and all night, waking with dried blood under my finger nails.

      As a very typical woman however I like to colour my hair and I like my hair to look nice, the products on the market that help my scalp condition do not benefit the appearance of my hair, so the compromise I have is that I will use a medicated shampoo for around 70% of the time, but when I know my scalp is in good condition I will allow myself to use a beauty type shampoo for a week or two, or before I go out somewhere nice and want my hair to feel at its best.

      I have recently discovered Herbal Essence Bee Strong Shampoo (and its matching conditioner) Currently this shampoo is on a special offer in Tesco, it is £1.89 for a 400ml bottle.

      What appealed to me about this product in the first place, is that it is not trying to promote itself in a pretty feminine pink bottle, many beauty shampoos (I personally feel) sell themselves as they are marketed towards ladies with pretty bottles and shampoos of pretty colours.

      Bee Strong is part of a range of different fragrances and variants from the Herbal Essence range. I have to admit that I probably chose this variant as it was not typically pink and glamorous, instead it is a clear bottle with the product being a deep English Mustard type colour.

      My first reaction when I used this shampoo, was that it was most certainly a good quality shampoo. I have long hair, and a 50pence size amount of the product squeezed onto the palm of my hand was most certainly enough shampoo to create a decent lather, I worked the shampoo through my hair - trying to avoid rubbing too much of it into my scalp where possible. Shampoo, lather, rinse - then repeat and do the same process all over again.

      I have been using the accompanying conditioner too.

      The product had a nice smell to it, not at all strong or overpowering, but certainly pleasant. After rubbing my hair dry I was able to brush through my hair quite easily, so I would certainly say that it was very good in that respect.

      As a rule I try to let my hair dry naturally, when my hair was dry I was happily aware that I had a nice sheen to my hair and it felt nice.

      So far so good, all in all top marks for this product. I liked it, and continued to use it for a few more washed. My young adult son has come home from university and prides himself on his hair, he too commented on how nice his hair felt - praise indeed - as his hair can be a pain in the wotnot to me sometimes! He is known to grumble about the various products I have bought - and yes, of course, as every good mother does - I end up telling him exactly my thoughts on the matter and he should go off and buy his own if he doesn't like what is in my bathroom!

      so, two positive votes from our household!

      For me however, I have had to stop using the shampoo, as within a week or so of using it daily, my scalp has become mildly itchy and flakey - I cannot blame this shampoo of course, as it is a condition I have lived with for many years now - however I have managed to use other beauty shampoos for longer, before I had to revert back to the medicated products. My son has continued to use it though, with absolutely no complaints.

      Would I recommend this product to others? Absolutely, without a doubt, I would suggest if you suffer from any scalp issues that you keep a close check on your own head, of course this shampoo promises to repair the protective outer layer of each strand of hair to leave it strong against combing damage.- but I do not doubt that there are many people like myself who need to be careful.

      I have looked on the web site about this shampoo, as I assumed that with the title of "Bee Strong" there would be some royal jelly type properties in it, but no - I assume that the "Bee" part comes from the fragrance of Honey and Apricot in it.

      I cannot say that I could smell Honey and Apricot, but certainly the shampoo had a very pleasant fragrance.

      Overall, my hair felt strong and shiny - a very nice product.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Your hair will 'bee' smelling lovely with this

        As I have mentioned in previous reviews I have been losing my hair over the last few years so I am always on the lookout for products that help nourish and keep what I have. I tend you use a caffeine shampoo to promote thickness and stimulate hair growth, but these do not contain any conditioning agents and tend to leave my hair smelling a bit manly so at least once a week I like to use a nice girly shampoo to leave it smooth, silky and smelling divine! I also use it after swimming as I like something to take away the yucky chlorine smell and feel.

        I recently bought Bee Strong from Herbal Essences from Tesco when it was on offer for a pound for a 200ml bottle. I am a bit of a fan of Herbal Essence hair care as the always smell heavenly, but I had not heard of this product before so decided to give it a try as it was advertised as a strengthening shampoo. The shampoo has been developed for damaged hair and contains honey and apricot extracts. It is a golden colour and looks like creamy honey in a bottle.

        The bottle has a green flip top lid which is easy to open - even without glasses in the shower! When you open the bottle you get the sweet aroma of honey with fruity notes, although I would not specifically place this as apricot, and it smells lovely. It pours well with a little squeeze of the bottle. The shampoo is quite thick and I find a 50p sized blob sits in my hand well which is an ample amount for my hair which comes just past my shoulders. It lathers up well and rubs through my hair, coating it well until it is covered in a white lathery foam. It rinses out well and does not leave any residue, and my hair feels soft and tangle free without using a conditioner on it. It also does not sting if you accidentally get any of the soapy mixture in your eyes, which is a great advantage if like me you are always rubbing your eyes whilst showering. It also means I could use it on my little boy when I forgot his shampoo at swimming.

        I am quite impressed with this shampoo so far - although it does not seem to have made my hair noticeably stronger it does leave my hair in really nice condition after using it and I do not seem to get split ends as quickly as I did. I also do not seem to lose as much hair when I wash with this shampoo as I have done with others I have tried which is great, especially for a shampoo at such a low price. The lovely honey fruity scent lingers once my hair has dried as well - this has also put hubbie off pinching it as he says it smells too girlie, which is another plus! It also leaves it smooth with a nice shine to it, and I am able to brush and style it easily after using it.

        As I only use this once or twice a week at most I have found the bottle goes a long way. I bought a big 400ml bottle once my small bottle ran out, and I am only halfway through. There is also a conditioner, a leave in spray, and a hair mask in the range although I have yet to try any of these. The range is currently half price in Tesco with a 400ml bottle costing £1.89 (normally £3.79) so I will be stocking up, and treating myself to the hair mask too!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          For those who love honey

          It seems to me that in our household we go through shampoo at quite an alarming rate. Given that my husband and I generally share a bottle of shampoo and conditioner it should come as no surprise, but as a result I am often on the look out for new products. One such product that caught my eye recently was this Bee Strong shampoo from Herbal Essences. I had seen the advert with Nicole Scherzinger whose hair looks incredibly sleek and glossy throughout and, being a bit of a sucker for adverts, I was drawn in. As a result, when I saw this shampoo on offer in my local Wilkinson store I purchased it together with the accompanying conditioner to test out.

          The bottle for this particular shampoo is quite colourful and definitely stands out from a shelf of other branded shampoos in my opinion. The predominant colour of the bottle is a lovely golden honey shade and this is topped with a bright green flip top lid. The two colours do not go well together in my opinion and I must admit to preferring the old bottle design that Herbal Essence used to use, however it does make it eye catching in a bathroom full of different bottles. On the front of my bottle I am told that this is a new product to Herbal Essences and that it is a strengthening shampoo for damaged hair.

          Before sharing my experience, it is perhaps beneficial that I outline the condition of my hair. My hair is of medium length and although I have a lot of it, the hair strands are quite fine with a tendency to fly away. My hair is dyed red at the current time and although not in bad condition it does look a little dried out after a blow dry.

          To use this shampoo I liked to pour out a good sized dollop of shampoo into my palm before massaging it over my scalp. This shampoo has a medium consistency and its colour matches that of the bottle being honey gold with small sparkly particles. The smell of this shampoo is lovely and soft and it has a honey scent which smells sweet and feminine. Once the shampoo comes into contact with my damp hair, I find that it lathers up quite well and that after a few rubs my hair is covered in a white foam which smells lovely. I then rinse the shampoo thoroughly from my hair before following with the conditioner from the same range.

          After blow-drying my hair, I find that this shampoo leaves it feeling soft and looking shiny and bouncy. This result lasts for around a day before the moisturising qualities of this shampoo start to weigh my hair down and leave it looking a little greasy. As someone who only likes to shampoo my hair every other day, I do find this a little annoying and have therefore resorted to dry shampoo on the days when I am not washing my hair to keep it looking fresh.

          As a result of my experiences, I would have to say that this shampoo is probably better suited to someone with thicker hair as I can imagine that it would tame and soften it. For this reason I would recommend this shampoo for those blessed with thicker tresses. On my hair it does do a nice job of cleaning it and the smell of the shampoo is lovely however, after one day I am left with slightly greasy looking hair and for that I would have to mark it down one star.

          This shampoo is available from a large range of supermarkets and pharmacies and costs around £2 for 200ml which makes it about average I would say.

          I hope this review has been of help and thanks for reading! x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Washes well, nice fragrance.

          After reading quite a lot of reviews about this shampoo I decided to give it ago when I spotted it on special offer while shopping in Tesco a while ago. I wanted to try it because the reviews I had read were positive ones and I did like the sound of it. I also bought the matching conditioner and hair mask too at the same time I bought this shampoo.

          It comes in a yellow transparent plastic bottle which has the name clearly on the front and so can be very easily spotted on a shelf. The bottle has a press down lid which is easy to press down and then simply clip closed again. The bottle is slim line so makes it really easy to get a good grip of the bottle while pouring it onto the hands.

          The liquid is quite a rich consistency and it doesn't drip from the bottle, it has a soft, smooth texture to it. It is a pale yellow colour and has a really nice sweet fragrance to it and a kind of buttery scent is best I can describe this one from my opinion. The scent isn't very strong and is fairly a subtle aroma but a pleasant enough scent. I did expect it to smell a little stronger and it isn't as strong a smell as I imagined but I am still happy with the fragrance.

          What I like about this shampoo is that you really don't need to use a lot of the shampoo to create a lot of lather on the hair, a little certainly goes a very long way with this shampoo that's for sure. I just pour a small amount onto my hand and gently work it into my hair. It foams really well too and the foam remains on my hair which helps while I shower my body and then just simply rinse it away from my hair. It is also very easy to rinse from the hair in no time at all.

          After towel drying my hair, the first time I used it I decided to test it out without using any hair conditioner just to see how it performed without a conditioner to soften the hair. I was pleasantly surprised how well I could brush my hair without a conditioner to soften it but I did feel as though my hair needed that extra condition to soften it. My hair did feel soft and shiny but not quite as glossy as when I used the shampoo alongside a conditioner.

          It cleans my hair perfectly and removes any dirt really well. It doesn't leave my hair feeling lanky or weighted down and a feeling I hate, this one allows my hair to flow well without it feeling too rough. I can move my head from side to side and it flows in the way I like it to flow.

          It contains honey and apricot extracts which are natural ingredients which help soften the hair. This shampoo is for damaged hair and although my hair isn't damaged or in a bad condition it has helped my hair look quite well nourished and not dry looking in appearance when I used it without using a conditioner. My hubby has used this one quite a lot without a conditioner and his hair does look quite glossy with a lot of shine to it. He quite likes this one and has commented on me buying it again in the future.

          It is also designed to strengthen the hair, I cannot comment on how it works for strengthening because I haven't really notice any difference in the strength of my hair because my hair is quite thick.

          From memory I think I bought it for £1.10 for a 200ml bottle and I bought it on special offer and half the original price, I think it is a very good value shampoo for this price and well worth the money. The quality of the shampoo is really good too. I believe it is available in a larger bottle too but I cannot be certain but I think I recall seeing a larger bottle on the shelf.

          I really like this shampoo and highly recommend it to others to give it a go. I don't think you will be disappointed in the results from this shampoo. I will most certainly buy it again in the future.

          I give it 5 stars.

          Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A nice shampoo for dry or damaged hair

            I have tried many of the Herbal Essences range before, therefore when the new Bee Strong shampoo, conditioner and mask was launched I wanted to try it out. The Bee Strong shampoo comes in a dark yellow bottle with a green lid, in order to dispense the product you press the lid down on one side of the green top and squeeze the bottle. The bottle has an illustration of honeycomb on it, this ties in with the theme of 'bees' and reflects the ingredients within the product that are honey and apricot extract.

            When the product is squeezed out of the bottle is is a yellow liquid, the scent of the product is lovely it smells quite floral and has a little whiff of sweet honey, I'm a big fan of Herbal Essences products as they smell so good and Bee Strong did not disappoint, what I like most is that the scent stays on your hair after washing so you get little bursts of the scent throughout the day.

            Each Herbal Essences product is designed for a different hair type, Bee Strong is designed to be strengthening for damaged hair. I found this product makes my hair feel sleek and shiny, I would say it's quite a moisturising shampoo to use and therefore more suitable for those with dry hair. Sadly, my hair is prone to getting greasy quickly and I think this shampoo accelerates this process making it not great to use on my greasy roots, but perfect for my dry ends.

            This shampoo was a little bit too heavy for my hair type, but nevertheless I do recognise it to be a good shampoo, it would be perfect for anyone with frizzy, dry or damaged hair. The Bee Strong ranges comes in two different sizes, a large 400ml bottle costs around £4 per bottle and a smaller 200ml bottle costs around £2. This range is available at all good supermarkets and chemists, the Herbal Essences range is often on offer and I normally buy mine where there is a buy one get one free promotion. I like the fact Herbal Essences make this product in two sizes as it means you can purchase a smaller bottle if you are new to the range and want to try it out first before committing to buying a big bottle of product.

            Disadvantages

            Recommended for a good hair day.

            I have been trying out Herbal Essences Bee Strong, strengthening shampoo with honey and apricot extracts for damaged hair. I have been using it for almost two weeks now. It is currently on offer in Sainsburys. A 400ml bottle is available for half price at £1.89. The normal selling price is £3.79.

            The plastic shampoo bottle looks a little different from the one pictured above at the moment. It is still an orange coloured bottle with a green flip top cap but currently the bottle displays a prominent picture of the stunningly beautiful Nicole Scherzinger - with a banner at the side celebrating her endorsement of the product #Scherzinghair. (Ah, those ad people - what jolly wags they must be.) Her hair certainly looks amazing - but what does the product do for my own hair?

            The product:

            The shampoo itself is thick, creamy and sort of a taupe/honey colour. This surprised me at first as I expected it to be more orangey in colour. In fact, it is just the bottle which is coloured orange presumably to make the product look brighter and more appealing.

            The product is supposed to help comb damaged hair by giving you silkier, stronger hair from the first wash. It says it has a formula which works to repair the protective outer layer of each strand of hair leaving your hair in better condition.

            The instructions are that you rinse and repeat with this product.


            Ingredients:

            Aqua, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Distearate, Dimethicone, Sodium Citrate, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Xylenesulfonate, Parfum, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Tetrasodium EDTA, Polyquaternium-6, Sodium Oxide, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydrochloric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Magnesium Nitrate, Mel, Prunus Armeniaca Fruit Extract, CI 19140, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, CI 17200, Magnesium Choride, Phenoxyethanol.


            The results:

            I have used this shampoo many times now and I am generally pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I do not have the youthful, luscious flowing locks of Ms Scherzinger - mine is the damaged, dyed and slightly dry hair of a middle aged woman.

            Using the shampoo is a pleasure. It smells gorgeous; you can really smell a blend of apricots underpinned by the sweet scent of honey. And a small amount goes a long way with this shampoo. It has a richness of lather that I would expect from a premium brand shampoo.

            The scent of this product lingers gently in my hair for a while after shampooing. And yes, my hair does feel nourished and in better condition. It hasn't worked miracles - but my hair looks shinier and my ends look less damaged. Most importantly, my hair feels good. That's a result in my book.

            I must add here that I have not used this product in conjunction with the associated conditioner. I just used the basic conditioner I'd got in the bathroom. I will try it with the Bee Strong conditioner in due course.

            All in all I am pleased with this product. It does a good job and makes my hair feel pampered. I feel it represents good value for money. Would recommend.

            Bee Strong shampoo

            Everyone wants their hair to bee strong and now you can achieve that was this lovely shampoo from Herbal Essences. I am a big fan of Herbal Essences shampoo and have used quite a few of the different varieties that they produce. This was is fairly new and I am just finishing up my second bottle since it has been released. I must say I was probably a little swayed by the advertising of this shampoo with photos of the lovely Nicole Scherzinger and her gorgeous strong hair promoting the product. Ok, so I know that I am not going to get hair like Nicole's from using this shampoo but at least it will be nice and cared for.

            This Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo is a Strengthening Shampoo with Honey & Apricot Extract for Damaged Hair. It is said to be tough on combing damage and promises to bulk up strength. According to the information, "This formula works to help repair the protective outer layer of each strand of hair to leave it strong against combing damage. Honey played for many years an important role in beauty rituals. It is said that Madame du Barry's, last mistress of Louis XV of France, well kept beauty secret was that she made her own facial masks out of 100% natural honey."

            What I really love about this shampoo too is the smell. It has honey and apricot flavour extracts and has a gorgeous fragrance to it and you can smell it on your hair afterwards which is lovely, especially if you use the conditioner also. The fragrance is wonderfully rich and flavourful and I really look forward to washing my hair with this shampoo just so I can experience the smell.


            The shampoo has a really nice consistency to it, not too thick or gloopy and just right in my opinion. It lathers up very well and rinses out well do and I only need to use a small amount for it to really wash my hair well. I never find I have a sticky residue in my hair after using this shampoo. I think I have noticed that my hair doesn't break as much and it does seem to be wonderfully nourished as well which is lovely. I use this shampoo in conjunction with the conditioner and the intensive mask so with all three of those bee strong products I feel like I am treating my hair really nicely.



            The product comes from Procter and Gamble. I used it in the 200ml size which I thought was a perfect size for taking on holiday with you or having in the shower. It's in a honey coloured bottle with a green flip cap lid and at the moment in Boots it is on special offer for £1.94 which I think is a great bargain.

              a good product for your hair

              I really liked this product, it had a really well thought out presentation, and the name made me interested in trying it out. Although the product doesn't seem to have any connections with bees, the conditioner and shampoo products made a great impact on my hair. The consistenecy was good, and the shampoo had a very fragrant smell to it, leaving a nice scent on your hair after washing. It comes out as a yellow, honey colour, which linked with the brand, and i liked this effect, especially on blonde hair. I found that the bottle was quiet small though, i'd used it up in about 3 weeks worth of washes, which, for its price, wasn't brilliant, however, i would buy the product again, as it washed hair well, and did the job it said it would. A nice idea with the bee aspect too, and i would recommend it highly.
