Product Review: Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Shampoo

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

     Yay for the second post of the day! I actually planned to make it three or more??? Wish me luck guys :D I hope the coffee kicks in. I already had two cups and I don't want another because I'm early later for some errands. So now another long overdue product review (whoa, that's a rhyme), do you still remember my post about my first conditioner for color-treated hair?If not, you can read my review here. I really love the effect of Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy on my locks! I'm already on my 4th bottle of that conditioner and one bottle usually lasts me a month with everyday use. Do you  agree that in order to achieve maximum results of a product you should use the whole product line? I'm a believer of this before but now I have doubts after using this shampoo. Thank goodness, I'm not using this on a daily basis or I'll end up with a barbie doll hair that not-so-smooth-and-silky-to-touch after giving her a bath. Or it's just my doll? Hahaha!

     Okay on to my review, I bought this shampoo months months ago and I'm just halfway through the bottle. At first I'm so excited because it's a tandem of both shampoo and conditioner so I have high hopes that this will make my color-treated hair more healthy and shiny. Well the first few weeks went well but months later I noticed something. It's not good nor bad, so-so methinks. 

     I tried working it with the conditioner. Yes it worked but I ended up using another shampoo. I set this aside and use another shampoo plus the Color Me Happy conditioner. I'm still thinking if I'll give this another try, maybe if I ran out of shampoo.

  • A little amount of product goes a long way.
  • Colorful and chic bottle.
  • Has manufacturing and batch date.
  • It has a great smell.
  • Cleanse my hair thoroughly.
  • Lathers well.
What I don't like:
  • Dried my hair a bit.
  • My hair feels coarse after shampooing :(
Will I repurchase? No because I don't shampoo my hair everyday so this product will last me a long way. I find this product ineffective in terms of adding shine and health to color-treated hair.

     I give this a 3.75/5 rating. I guess I have to find another shampoo for my color-treated hair. I thought using this shampoo together with the Color Me Happy conditioner that I really love will make the best of both worlds. But it's okay at least I've got to try it and see for myself. 

     Have you tried the new Herbal Essences line? Which one is your favorite? Stay safe!

Good Times!~

  2. Sorry to hear your hair dried a bit from this. I actually love their shampoos and conditioners. My favorite is the red one. Can't remember the exact name. :P

  3. @CHAMEE- hi there! Yes, try it and let me know how it worked for you.

    @Dawn- oo nga e, sayang naman yung tandem ng shampoo saka conditioner but the conditioner is super love!

  4. I used to use their shampoos and conditioners a long time ago.. now I stick with Dove :D

    My beauty blog

  5. @Chrissy- I've tried Dove din yung gold and pink variant but di din hiyang hair ko. Parang nag dry lalo :(

  6. Haven't tried anything from them yet but I want to try out their Tousle Me Softly line soon. Especially the mousse and their hairspray! :)
    Btw, I love Dove and Tresemme conditioners! :)

  7. @Shiela Mhay- Hi there :D let me know the result. I also want to try tresemme. Dove doesn't like me :(

  8. This is straight forward--very honest post. When it comes to almost all products, I believe na talagang minsan hiyangan lang:)

  9. @jen- thanks! true, hiyangan lang talaga :) As much as I wanted to try organic hair products, hindi ko pa ma try ulit kasi hindi ako hiyang :(
