I'm So Glad I Found You

Herbal Essences Moisture Balance Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I always used to be such a big fan of Herbal Essences, and throughout my teenage years, along with V05, I used little else on my hair. That was until the rebrand, and along came odd shaped bottles with what seemed to be new or reformulated products that just didn't have the same effect. So, when I heard a few months ago that a couple of old favourites were being released I couldn't hide my excitement. Excitement that quickly turned into frustration after I discovered everywhere in my town was sold out, until recently when I finally found them!

After finding them I went for the Moisture Balance Shampoo and Conditioner as they're really the sort of things I look for in haircare. They have chamomile, passion fruit and aloe vera extracts resulting in the most heavenly scent you could imagine, even with perfume on everyone is commenting on how good my hair smells. The formula has been updated slightly from back in the day, now being without any silicone.

From my first use, I fell back in love with these so quickly. A little goes such a long way, and my hair has been looking amazing since buying. Soft, silky and manageable, which seems hard to come by since growing my hair long, but comes so effortlessly after using these. I've been having some troubles with oil production recently as my hair seems to go greasy so quickly, but the conditioner from the range leaves my hair feeling nourished without weighing it down or feeling too heavy. For budget haircare these really are some of the best on the market, and I think I need to get back into Morrisons and stock up before they disappear again!

  1. Yes! I'm totally with you on this! The rebrand is tacky and disappointing, bring back the old bottles and formulas please! As soon as I popped the lid the scent took me back to my Uni days. Must find a ton and stock up!

  2. I love the scents but unfortunately the shampoo turns my hair into a dry ball of fluff - not a good look :o) Xx

  3. I always go through a period where I buy myself some Herbal Essences and honestly I've not done it since the rebrand. Think I might have to pop in store and pick some up, I'd been using a really cheap shampoo/conditioner recently which has caused my hair havoc! Maybe this will sort it out :-)


  4. Oh I used to LOVE the chamomile Herbal Essences shampoo/conditioner!!! So nourishing and gerat for blonde hair. I hadn't realised they'd re-released it!!! x

  8. Omg I'm so happy you get the old school Herbal Essences love! I had to buy these when I saw them in Target because they were my all time favorite shampoo and conditioner when I was 10 and I never understood why they got rid of them. Ahhh the nostalgia, no shampoo smells this good! :D

  9. Ok I definitely need to get these. I have long, unmanageable hair in need of hydration so these sound completely amazing! I think a lot of us have fond memories of herbal essences--I always think of colorful bottles and fruity scents!
