I totally agree with many other reviewers about the essence-less of herbal essence. Initially I thought it was only me, now it seems like I have found my friends.

I first tried herbal essence many years back and have stopped using them since then, unless I have small sachets of samples. I was rather young and was very intrigued by their commercials as well. In particular, they always show how those girls have extremely smooth and bouncy hair and how they have this range that specializes in targeting dry hair. I had very coarse and curly hair, cut in a mushroom shape (yes) and was so happy when my sister actually bought their shampoo home. And so, I used her shampoo without asking and got my retribution - drier hair.

It was really surprising to me how that shampoo, which targets dry hair, could actually make it worse. And I seriously thought it was just my hair, now I know.

It's been quite a while since I chose to use Herbal Essences shampoo. My experience with this brand is a rather unpleasant one. I don't think it gives you a run for your money if you purchase their shampoos, unless you've been a loyal fan all this while and nothing's gone wrong.

The shampoo I used made my hair tangle. All that talk about making your hair smooth is actually untrue. I wouldn't say that the shampoo is utterly disgusting, it does have a nice aroma because of the ingredients and scents used in their shampoo formula. Although, I don't think that chemical-wise, it's very helpful to the hair.

Before buying, I recommend you to check the ingredients listed on the bottle. For me, I usually use other shampoos like Head & Shoulders because of my sensitive scalp skin. But otherwise for more organic option, I think Lush or Sunslik is a much better choice.

Herbal essence, supposedly, was meant to have anti-dandruff and hair care properties. I mean, its comprised on herbs and herbs are supposed to be healthy and good right? Wrong, it turned out to be.

Ever since puberty, I had plenty of problems with dandruff. Every 3 days, it seems I could create a dandruff shower with a flick of my head. It'd be cool if it were snow, but unfortunately dead skin did not appeal to anyone around me, hence the need to source for a solution. I turned to Herbal Essence, and began using it regularly for the next few months.

There are both good and bad points about the shampoo, in my opinion. What I really liked was the nice aroma that permeates the room I'm in. I actually got complimented about my hair and I loved going to sleep since my hair is in such proximity that I could take in the smell. However, the proclaimed herbal properties did not improve my dandruff problem. Instead, my skin got flakier and drier and I rained a bigger storm of dandruff.

Over the course of time though, I realised you can't depend on shampoos anymore. My dandruff problem improved tremendously after I got botak and spent loads of time in the sun during BMT. This, indeed, toughened my scalp and actually made it healthier (Though there was the itchiness and initial bigger shower of dead skin flakes!).
