Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

We won’t let dry hair drain your style.  Our moisture rich formula, with a fusion of Hawaiian coconut and orchid, leaves your hair soft, smooth and moisturized. so don’t discriminate against dry hair.

Being blessed with dry, frizz-prone hair, the promise of soft and smooth hair is just too tempting to ignore, and when I saw these trial sizes of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration shampoo and conditioner at Target, I picked them up in a jiffy.  I have shoulder-length hair, and the quantity in these bottles lasts me a few good washes - enough to do a review of these.

This blue-coloured shampoo with a sweet, coconutty smell is quite gentle but still does a good enough job of leaving my hair clean and soft.  It washes off really easily and surprisingly does not leave my scalp feeling dry either (which is a major problem that I have with most silicone-containing shampoos).  It doesn't give the slippery feeling to my hair, and for the same reason, doesn't leave it tangle-free either, but I always follow this with a conditioner so it really is not an issue for me.

A gentle shampoo that cleans without the frizzy hair look - I really didn't find any much moisturization as such, but I guess it does leave my hair bit more tamed so I can agree with that claim :)

The pale blue, thick and creamy conditioner smells just as coconutty and sweet as the shampoo.

I apply a generous amount concentrating on the ends of my hair and leave it on for about 3 minutes.  It washes of fairly easily, and I don't notice any obvious residue on my hair after I wash it off.  My hair definitely feels softer and tangle-free without the slippery feeling which I hate.  Thankfully, I haven't had any itchy scalp reactions to this product either.

Verdict:  This is the first time I am trying out Herbal Essences, and I love the Hello Hydration
range.  It definitely leaves my hair more controllable and frizz-free without drying otu my scalp.  Love the sweet coconutty smell that it leaves behind on my hair.  Overall, a good, inexpensive option for the dry-haired girl looking for a gentle shampoo :D

  2. Oh thanks, Ritika. This chotu size one was a dollar something..but I forgot :D It's too mild for oily hair, though...like if you oil your hair you need to shampoo at least twice generously to get all the oil out.

  3. aw these are so dear to my heart :) so glad u didnt dislike them :D
    if its one brand i believe in for my frizzy hair -and avail here in India - its Herbal Essences. been their fan for ages.
    Hello Hydration is easily my fav too. Its 148Rs for a 300ml bottle each of shampoo and conditioner. oh so lovely smell!
    although the bottles we get here are diff from what you have shown - maybe cos they are from the middle east or something...
    their other prods are great too - like the rose one, twisted curls etc.,
    since u said frizzy and jiffy - do try John Frieda - one for the frizz. and defintiely do try their original formula serum (some 10$ or so) - i use only that for abt 5-6 yrs now...

  5. Gaea - Oh thanks for the price update. The ones I have shown in the review are the smaller travel-size bottles which is why the shape is different. Oh John Frieda - will give that a try too..have you tried Bumble and bumble? The bottles look so cute I am waiting for my Garnier to finish up and buy that next :D
