Browsing the aisles of Boots there'll always be certain brands which bring back nostalgic memories of being a teenager. For me one of those brands is Herbal Essences and I must have gone through countless bottles of their shampoos and conditioners back in the day. In recent years I've moved onto more natural/high end brands however their new Clearly Naked collection has got me hooked all over again and if you're looking to try hair care free from parabens, silicone and colorants then this new range is well worth a look:
The clearly naked conditioner is
nice enough (fruity smelling, nourishing and light weight) but it's the
two shampoos which are the star of the show for me. One of the reasons I
love Herbal Essences is because their all products smell so good and
this new range doesn't disappoint. The combination of grapefruit and
mint is subtle but still refreshing and sweet and linger lightly in my
hair after washing.
When I first saw the Herbal Essences clearly naked range I assumed that it would be sulphate free, turns out that's
not the case but despite this it still feels gentle and non irritating
on my scalp, even with regular almost daily use. The volume shampoo foams
up easily (one of my biggest complaints about SLS free shampoo), feels
clarifying and leaves my hair soft and clean without being stripped or
weighed down. At £2.35 a bottle I think this is a good budget buy if you're
looking for something a little more gentle on the scalp and as it's so
easily available on the high street I can see myself picking up another
bottle soon, especially as the boyfriend seems to enjoy using it too!
one of my daily essentials is dry shampoo and I have to say I'm
impressed with Herbal Essences clearly naked dry shampoo. As with most budget dry shampoos there's a slight
chalky after feel but it does a good job at soaking up any grease and out of
all the dry shampoos I've tried this one gives the most volume. Plus it
smells really fresh and I like that it comes as clear spray so there's no white cast and you don't have to spend ages rubbing it into the hair.
