Product Review: Herbal Essences Shampoo/Conditioner for Long Hair
Long Term Relationship Shampoo and Conditioner
I have found success in other drugstore brands like Pantene and Dove, but I hadn’t tried Herbal Essences products for awhile. I have tried one of their other kinds - Hello Hydration (in the blue bottle) - and liked it, plus it smells amazing.
I was hoping to have the same kind of luck with their Long Term Relationship hair products but this was not the case. The smell is delicious and it lathers well in my hair. There is nothing wrong with the consistency or packaging of the product, but it leaves my hair feeling dry.
There are several factors that can contribute to this dryness including weather conditions, water temperature, etc., but I had not changed any variables in my hair washing except product, so I have decided it is this shampoo and conditioner that is drying out my hair. I feel it immediately after my hair begins to air dry and my normally non-tangled hair has become more tangled. And during the day, it is a bit lifeless and dull.
I use a lot of different shampoos and conditioners and usually cannot tell the difference between one or the other as to if my hair looks shinier or is healthier, so when I noticed a clear difference with this product I knew that something was going wrong. I would not recommend this product due to the dryness it leaves my hair with, but I do want to know if anyone else has tried the product and had different thoughts.
Again, my hair is long and very thick so that might make more of a difference as well. I would love to hear your thoughts if you have tried this product or to get any shampoo recommendations.
