As you might be aware from my Insta Stories, that Herbal Essences finally came to India and I couldn’t be happier. My friends overseas have been raving about their shampoo and conditioners and I just couldn’t wait but placed my order for their whipped cocoa butter shampoo and conditioner from Amazon. After using this baby for a while here I am sharing my detailed experience using herbal essences whipped cocoa butter shampoo and conditioner.
Herbal Essences Bio Renew Strength Whipped Cocoa Butter Shampoo and Conditioner Review
Appearance: The shampoo and comes in an adorable huge bottle which is reddish brown in color and has a black flip cap that shuts nicely and is spill proof. But since it’s so huge, I found it to be not that travel-friendly.
The shampoo is white in color and has a creamy gel kinda consistency is loaded with the fragrance of cocoa with a hint of something else which I could not figure out for the life of me. But the fragrance is nice and you would find it pleasant if you adore cocoa.
The conditioner is thicker in texture compared to the shampoo and has a more prominent white color. It too smells the same as the shampoo.
Product claims: Herbal Essences bio: renew is crafted with a blend of essential antioxidant, aloe, and sea kelp. This Shampoo and conditioner have 0% parabens, gluten, and colorants. Herbal Essences bio: renew brings your hair back to life. Whipped Cocoa Butter Shampoo and conditioner helps strengthen hair against styling damage.

Price and shelf life: The shampoo costs Rs.600 for 400ml and conditioner costs RS.650 for 400ml of product. Both of them have a shelf life of 36 months.
My Experience Using The Herbal Essences Bio Renew Strength Whipped Cocoa Butter Shampoo and Conditioner
The shampoo contains SLS so I used it after diluting it in water so that it wouldn’t dry out my already dry scalp and hair. It lathered really well and left my hair squeaky clean in one go. I definitely noticed a beautiful bounce in my hair but sadly, I couldn’t ditch the conditioner afterward because it made my hair a bit frizzy.
The shampoo actually helps in cleaning hair nicely even if you heavily oiled it. I loved how the cocoa fragrance accompanied me for a while even after rinsing the shampoo.
The shampoo claims to be working great for color treated hair and it also claims to repair the damage. So on that, I felt that it didn’t rip off the color from my hair but sadly instead of repairing it added t the frizz. Overall after using it for almost 20 days, I can say that it cleans hair beautifully and if accompanied by its conditioner it repairs hair too. Alone it doesn’t do the job of repairing your hair well.
But luckily I ordered the conditioner too. My hair is on the dryer side, I needed a lot more of conditioner to achieve the desired results. The conditioner did make my hair really soft and silky. It helped to keep them detangled as well and my hubby just kept playing with them (Blushes :())
So I can say if you have color treated hair and don’t mind using a shampoo with SLS then this is a good pick. If you have oily hair you might actually adore this one like my sister. Just make sure to invest in both the products together to achieve beautiful results.

Where To Buy Herbal Essences Shampoo And Conditioner in India?
As I mentioned above, I got mine from Amazon.
Yay or Nay?
Yay for me!
The shampoo smells nice, leaves hair clean and does not rip off your hair color. If you use conditioner along with it, nothing like it. Then it definitely makes hair soft and smooth. So I would say, be your own judge and decide. I left you with all the pros and cons. Now the ball is in your court. Just quick advice, if you buy them together for best results.
