Product Review: Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Shampoo

Wednesday, September 05, 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.

  • Colorful and chic bottle.

  • 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!

No Buy Mode

Saturday, June 23, 2012

     I'm on a no buy mode! After winning so many skin care and makeup products which I'm already road testing one by one now, my plan is to save the money that the hubby gave me to buy beauty stuffs. I told him that I'll keep the money and buy new shoes and clothes instead. He's very supportive and when he saw that I'm running out of shampoo, he just bought one. I also received this chiffon sleeveless top from him. The IOPE retinol cream and AVON Advance Techniques came from my sister's stash. I went to our house last week and peeked into her drawer and I saw both. She told I can bring them home if I want. And tadaaa! Here it is :D
L-R: Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Shampoo, Black Chiffon Sleeveless Top, AVON Advance Techniques Anti-Frizz Serum, IOPE Retinol TX cream
     That's all for now, I have plenty of product reviews on my drafts and I don't know which one to publish first. I'm using two new organic soaps so watch out for my review. Happy weekend everyone!

Good Times!~

Product Review: Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner

Monday, April 09, 2012

     I'm back! As in for good, the hubby gave his spare time to bring our good 'ol laptop at the repair shop and bought a new hard drive. I have mixed feelings when he told me that it's already fixed. I immediately asked him about the pictures stored in the broken hard drive and he's not sure if our photos can be retrieve. Oh well, I just have to wait and wish my luck. But I'm happy that I can update my blog on a regular basis now that I have "me time" with my laptop. No need to use the old school desktop that sucks bigtime. 

     If you're a follower of this blog, prolly you know that I already colored my locks more than once.  You can view my previous hair color here  and my current here. I love how my color-treated hair  brightens my face and made me look younger than my age. Since I'm already coloring my hair every three months now, I need to maintain it with the right shampoo and conditioner. After reading reviews and forums on shampoos and conditioners for color- treated hair, I decided to try Clairol Herbal Essences. This brand sounds familiar to those 90's generation kid. I remember their rose botanical variant smells divine and became my shampoo and conditioner during my elementary days! So without hesitation I gave this variant a try. I'm happy that it did not fail me because I'm on my second bottle now.

     Now here's my take on Clairol Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner
serum infused formula for moisturized softness with Moroccan rose and Passion Fruit, these creamy conditioner will bring out the natural shine and vitality while helping to replenish essential moisturizers.

What I like:
  • attractive packaging, fancy design and contains trivia at the back of the bottle
  • really affordable since one bottle lasted me approximately 2 months
  • the scent is not overpowering
  • it has thick consistency unlike other local conditioners
  • a little goes a long for my thin hair
  • has manufacturing and batch date
  • made my hair soft, shiny and vibrant
  • doesn't aggravate my hair fall
  • doesn't gave me bacne and zits on the forehead
  • easily accessible
What I don't like:
  • the scent doesn't last long on my hair
  • this variant is always OOS 
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm on my second bottle now and will restock on my next haul.

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. I got compliments that my hair is healthy and shiny the last time I went to a salon for my pedicure. The hair stylist asked me what kind of treatment I'm using. I told them that I'm just using this conditioner. It's truly a Color Me Happy experience, I highly recommend this product!

      What's your favorite conditioner?Thanks for sharing. 

Good Times!~
