Product Review: Herbal Essence Honey I'm Strong Shampoo & Conditioner

Hey Curlies,

Despite the fact that I got two of my wisdom teeth pulled out and a fat mouth on the left side, you know I cannot stay away!

I finally got a chance to wash and deep condition my hair a few days ago. It was the first time I'd washed my hair in who knows how long. I washed using the new line from Herbal Essence called Honey I'm Strong. I've seen the commercials and was always curious to try it. I actually was in Dollar Tree a few weeks ago and they carried the small sample sizes of the shampoo and conditioner. I felt like this would be a great way to try it and not spend too much money if I did not like it. I got one shampoo and two conditioners.


Honey I'm Strong Conditioner

What it Contains:
Water/Eau, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Honey/Miel, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Fragrance/Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Blue 1, Yellow 5, Red 33.

What it claims to do:
Make hair 10xs stronger in just one use

Uses:
To condition hair after shampooing or as a co-wash

My Review:
I was really impressed by this conditioner. It smells really good, the honey stands out. It doesn't have the stickiness of honey which is a plus and has the texture of your regular ordinary conditioner. It also contains no sulfates, paraben or protein. It would be perfect for this time of year when it is cold outside and our hair is lacking moisture. The slip in this product is great! If a conditioner doesn't have a texture that will glide on to my hair easily, I will probably dismiss it immediately. This product was very easily distributed on to my curls. My hair felt very soft and moisturized after rinsing. The best part is that an orignial sized bottle of this product is only about $3! Overall, I give this product a 5 out of 5 for being an inexpensive, protein-free product.

My Review:
I did like this shampoo, but I will say that there was nothing spectacular about it beside the smell. It smells amazing! It did cleanse my hair really well leaving no buildup and I only washed once. It served its purpose and it takes a lot for me to be impressed with any shampoo. I would buy this product again. Overall, I give this product a 4 out of 5 for being very inexpensive at $3 and acting as a great cleanser.
