|Herbalife Herbal Aloe Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner (link), £9.22 250ml.|
The sulphate and paraben free shampoo claims to strength hair, reduce breakage, preserve color and protect hair. The conditioner carries similar claims also preserving colour, strengthening hair and leaving it feeling it feeling silkier. Each bottle is 250ml in size, and they are £9.22 each.
The Herbal Aloe Strengthening Shampoo (link) is a nice shampoo. I can't say it was something that was stand out amazing, but it also wasn't bad in any way. The sulphate and paraben free formula was something of a worry for me at first because I love my shampoo to lather up a lot but this didn't disappoint. The first wash seemed a little lack luster in the lather department but when I rinsed through my second wash it lathered up like a dream.
The two washes ensured that my hair was nice and clean and I loved that it didn't leave my hair feeling dry. Many shampoos, even ones claiming to be moisturizing, leave my hair feeling drier than before but this just left it feeling really clean.
The Herbal Aloe Strengthening Conditioner (link) was the stand out product in this duo. As soon as I applied the product to my hair, I knew it was going to be a good one. Conditioner is something very hit and miss with me. I have colour treated, dry frizzy hair that is hard to tame. It usually take a deep conditioner for it to feel nourished, but this worked brilliantly.
It smoothed onto my hair easily, smelled nice and left my hair feeling soft. I won't say it cured all my hair sins, but it really helps and I love that it's a strengthening formula and good for colour treated hair.
The products didn't do anything to aid the deterioration of my coloured hair. I have died red/purple hair, so the colour fades fast. These products seems to work just as well as specific coloured hair products, and left my hair feeling silkier.
Overall, I think these products are great. It's great to find something that is sulphate free and paraben free that actually works for my hair. The colour preserving formula is an added bonus to an already great list of credentials these hair products carry.
