With new beauty products and brands popping up every other week it’s sometimes easy to forget the basics such as everyday Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s something we almost take for granted, but today I’m going to go back to basics and talking about Herbal Essences, specifically - Smooth and Soft.
This is a brand I’ve been using on and off since I was a teenager, I’ve always liked the variety of products they’ve had to offer with different scents and results. Smooth & Soft Shampoo and conditioner is designed for dry, damaged and frizzy hair. While I’m lucky enough not to have crazy frizzy Monica from friends hair. I do find that with all the exposure to the harsh summer sun, my hair gets dry and often needs a little helping hand.
First off, I love the Herbal Essences packaging with it’s bright tropical colours, and not only that, my favourite thing has to be that the shampoo and condition sit different ways up so it’s easy to tell which one is which. How many times have you picked up the conditioner first?! I do it all the time with other brands. Smooth & Soft contains mandarin extract, which I can report back smells divine which leaves your hair smelling as equally as gorgeous. With the bright colours and the exotic smells - Smooth and soft gives you the ultimate tropical shower experience right in your own bathroom.
Since I have long, slightly wavy hair that I wash and subject to heat tools often, I like that the product adds moisture and tames and frizz that I do have, while still leaving my hair smooth yet not weighed down so I can still achieve big voluminous curls. The shampoo lathers well but don’t strip the hair of all the natural oils and moisture that I find with some shampoos. The conditioner is nice an creamy and leaves my hair subtle and soft without any tangles!
Next time you’re in the supermarket, breath some life back into our hair and pick up some Herbal Essences - Smooth and Soft. Your hair will thank you for it.
Herbal Essences Smooth & Soft is available from major retailers priced €3.05
