Since the age of fifteen I have used and abused my hair, dying it every colour of the rainbow, using extensions and frying it to within a inch of its sorry life with straighteners.
During three pregnancies it only became worse with ends snapping off and it falling out by the handful. My poor follicles have been crying out for an eternity for some love and attention so it’s about time I heard them and gave my tresses the respect they deserved in hope they would forgive me.
Over the last few months I have bought a vast amount of shampoos and conditioners ranging in price from Wella SP repair (£11.50 for 250ml), Revlon professional be fabulous repair (£8.50 for 250ml) and Herbal Essences bio: renew repair (£4.50 for 400ml). Believe me the list really does go on.
It is the Herbal Essences that I will be talking about today, not because it is the most affordable but because the condition of my hair since using it has improved so much it has been shocking.
The bottle states the repair shampoo with argan oil of morocco helps “purify and protect against what your hair gets used to over time. Resulting in soft, free flowing hair”. To note I have been using this with the matching conditioner which states the same effects.
Problems I have been having before is my hair is so brittle due to being mistreated but also very fine that when I start using too many products, especially a conditioner, it can resemble the chip fat look within twenty four hours of washing. It becomes hard work trying to fit in washing it every night and dry shampoo’s have been a failure as they simply add to drying out my hair even more.
Herbal Essences bio: renew has been a gift from god!! Taking away the constant need to re wash my hair and giving it three days of happiness with a silky soft feel and healthy shine.
Due to the price I have been particularly impressed, I just didn’t think I would find something in such a low budget that actually improved the standard of my hair. And to the extent it has done so!
As I stated earlier from using this the last few weeks I can now go up to three days without the dire need to wash my hair again but the icing on the cake has been the condition in which my hair has improved.
The roots feel nourished and looked after, the ends are less brittle and appear smoother and the softness to my hair is something else. I genuinely do not believe my hair has felt this good in years, it has really given it a new lease of life, changing my views towards my hair from it being hard work to wanting to look after and protect it.
Let me know if you have tried this out and if it works for you or if it just isn’t your product. Also if you have any other recommendations on hair care products I’d love to hear them. Comment below or tweet @KateL564.
