Product Review: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
As a curly girl having a good conditioner is a must to satisfy our thirsty tresses. I've been a huge fan Aussie Moist conditioner, but sometimes I like to switch it up and try something new.
Lately, I've been using Hello Hydration conditioner by Herbal Essences. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this conditioner. It didn't seem as rich as my Aussie Moist and so I was worried my hair wasn't getting the moisture it needs. Herbal Essences claims that Hello Hydration conditioners contain "hydro-activated silkening ingredients" to help infuse hair with moisture. I'm not sure what "silkening ingredients" means but I will say that my hair was much less frizzy on the days I co-washed my curls with this conditioner. So I guess those "silkening ingredients" (the Hawaiian coconut and orchid flower extracts, perhaps?) did their job.
I also love the scent -- coconut, tropical fruits, with a hint of vanilla. Delicious!
Hello Hydration is inexpensive, in fact at Target it was the same price as Aussie Moist conditioner, but technically Aussie is cheaper because you get more for your buck (13.5 oz. of Aussie Moist versus 12 oz. of Hello Hydration).
Nevertheless, I am happy will this conditioner and will continue using it for now. I'm also a fan of the shampoo. It makes a great lather and a little bit goes a long way, which is important for me since my mane is so thick.
