Basket full of flowers. Skipping down a hill while hair sways from side to side. Simple summer evenings and spring mornings. That's where I'm transported to when I use Herbal Essences Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner.
Let’s be honest, I’m a broke, cheap, busy college student. When it comes to picking purchases with my own hard-earned (and dwindling) dollars, price usually comes before quantity. Even if I’m craving decadent 5 star restaurant cuisine, I have to go for the fast-food garbage. This is the same with a lot of beauty products I buy, I’d love to have the lavish hair care treatment shampoo, but I have to choose a cheaper option.
First impressions are everything. When I first laid eyes on the shampoo and conditioner, I couldn’t deny how LOVELY the packaging is. Both bottles are mainly pink, the soft and warm pink that is similar to the Pantone color of the year from not too long ago. The shampoo bottle is clear and displays the contents with a background with a floral print. The conditioner is also pink but isn’t clear. There are designs representing how Herbal Essences uses natural ingredients (which gives off an earthy, comforting sense). Even the cap to the shampoo and conditioner is beautifully designed!
Talk Clean To Me
Language plays a tremendous role in packaging. Whether you flip the bottles around to read the directions or ingredients, some people do and the language must be reflective of the brand. I loved the strong and infatuating language; “infused blend of Rose hips, vitamin E and Jojoba extracts”, “smooth hair as nature intended”, “enter a world of botanical bliss” BOTANICAL BLISS!!!!
My Tears Have Dried, My Hair Is No Longer Dry
You know the saying, “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone?”. This goes for both crappy and awesome things. I had no clue my hair was as dry and damaged as it was until I lathered my hair with this product. As i wet my hair in the shower, I prepped for part one; shampoo. The first thing you recognize is the fragrance of the shampoo. It’s rich, it’s floral, it’s homey to me. I could smell it on my hands and hair as i shampoo’d. As I lathered and rinsed and washed my hair, I could FEEL my hair becoming softer. I have never experienced this in my life. I proceeded to condition my hair and the same lovely, peaceful, fragrance transported me to spring mornings as my hair became noticeably softer.
The Confidence to Conquer Anything!
After I showered, I blow dried my hair. My hair is very thick and naturally wavy. As i brushed my hair while drying, I noticed I had little to no knots. Usually post-shower, I’m stuck ripping through my hair, begging for the pain and knots to end. KNOT TODAY!!
As I blow dried, the fragrance of the products filled my room. I have never experienced this before, I was shocked with how lasting the scent was. I could see my hair lacked the frizz it usually has post blow drying. My hair was luscious and beautifully scented, something my snapchat friends commented on. I became more confident using this product; my hair has become softer, smoother, and smelling great in only one shower.
A day later, I’m at my internship. Everyday I wear my hair in a bun due to the thickness and frizz - such a distraction when you’re trying to work! My coworker that buzzes me in the front door didn’t even recognize me on the camera. She raved about my hair and said it was BEAUTIFUL down! As I sat and worked, I could still smell the fragrance from the shampoo and conditioner.
