No Parabens, No Gluten and No Colourants; can you get any better than this for your hair? Way back, I remember myself trying Herbal Essences shampoo conditioners which used to come in clear long bottles and I was really not aware of what goes into my hair. And looking at present scenario, I’m really glad to see the entire Bio Renew range being available in India. Absolute bliss for someone like me, and with a ton of different ranges addressing every hair issue I had my heart on the Bio Renew Whipped Cocoa Butter range as I have super dry, frizzy wavy hair and all I need is some hydration for my tresses. In this post, I’ll be talking about this shampoo-conditioner duo and my experience using it.
When everyday life gets on top of your hair, Herbal Essences has the answer. This dynamic duo of shampoo and conditioner purify and protect your locks, reviving and renewing them so they are soft, free-flowing and full of shine. Whipped Cocoa Butter Shampoo helps strengthen hair against styling damage. This Shampoo is pH balanced and safe for color treated hair. The clever formula, that brings together essential antioxidant, aloe and sea kelp in a healing combination, gets to work from the very first wash. You’ll find your hair staying strong against styling damage and looking its best week after week. You’ll love the heavenly fragrance too, with hints of Black Cherry followed by smooth Almond Cream and Spiced Amber. Mmmm! This Shampoo also has 0% parabens, gluten and colourants.

Packaging, these shampoo conditioner duo come in huge maroon colored plastic bottles with a flip open caps. These 400ml bottles are quite tough to carry these while on vacays or some sort, and these do not come in any other sizes; just one standard sized bottle. Looks like pretty normal silky flowing shampoo and a creamy conditioner with an heavenly cocoa butter fragrance. Love the fact that this range free from parabens, gluten and colourants. That being said, the shampoo does contain SLS and is one of the main ingredients. And the conditioner has water soluble alcohols and silicones which some people do mind in their hair care, so this range might not be everyone’s cup of tea.
I have frizzy, wavy and limp hair, and I do not play with chemicals much; so I must be careful in picking my hair care products. I have recently been loving natural butters and have tried quite a few which I’m loving and hence you see this Cocoa Butter formula in my regime. This shampoo cleanses the hair very well without making it dry, and thank goodness it hadn’t showed any changes in my hairfall. It nourishes and hydrates the hair, which I’m all about. I follow up with the conditioner, squeeze out all the extra water and flip my hair upside down applying it to the entire length till the ends and scrunch for about 3-5 minutes. I leave it again for a good 3-5 minutes and rinse off the conditioner. Being a silicone-based conditioner, it does have that slip on the hair. It does make my hair smooth and manageable post drying. And overall gives little definition and bounce to my waves; whilst making my hair nourished and hydrated.
