Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner Review

Hello everybody,

I wonder why not all the days are like Friday evenings – just relax, enjoy, have a blast for the rest of 2 days. Anyway, coming to today’s review, I am going to review Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner. I have been using the shampoo and conditioner from this range for almost 6 months. I have not switched to any other shampoo (apart from TBS rainforest), read on to find why.

My Experience with Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Conditioner:

Packaging: Herbal Essences shampoos come in transparent bottles whereas the conditioners come in opaque ones. Almost all of the Herbal Essences products look cute and very girly.  This is a huge sturdy bottle. We needn’t worry about spillage but it is certainly not travel friendly because I don’t prefer to carry such huge bottles while traveling.

Fragrance: Well, as the packaging says “with rose extracts,” the conditioner smells of roses.  Which girl would not like her hair to smell like roses :D. The fragrance is pretty strong, my hair smells of roses for 2 days.

Color/Texture:  The product is light pink in colour and the texture is very creamy and thick.

Before telling you how the product worked for me, I would tell you about my hair type and texture. My hair is naturally jet black, very thick, and healthy, thanks to my momma 😛 I had to face premature greying at a very early age.  I started using henna, but I realized that henna makes my hair dry and lifeless, that’s why I started colouring my hair. Initially, I used to go to salons and get my hair coloured with L’Oreal INOA.  But as time passed by, I realized that salon’s always burn a huge hole in the pocket, so I started to color my hair with L’Oreal Casting Creme without ammonia in the shade – 323 Sonam’s Dark Chocolate. Believe me, it is the best thing that happened to my hair. I am no more uncomfortable with my grey hair, I have my luscious hair back.

Colour treated hair needs proper care with a good shampoo and conditioner meant for colour treated hair. Previously, we used to have very few options for colour treated hair; but now, there are more brands in the market, all thanks to globalization. In a quest to find the best shampoo and conditioner for my hair, I ended up getting Color Me Happy range from Herbal Essences.  I have tried Color Me Shiny as well, but this is much better than that.

After shampooing my hair with Color Me Happy, I apply a generous amount of conditioner all over my hair leaving the scalp area. I keep it for a good 10 minutes and rinse it off completely.  My hair feels soft, supple and well moisturized. On days when I don’t use the conditioner, my hair seems to be dry. This has become my HG product now. I keep switching between TBS rainforest and Herbal Essences Color Me Happy.  I like the way it smooths my hair and keeps it moisturized.  It also makes my hair tangle free; however, I do follow up with a hair serum.

Ladies with colour treated hair need to take care of their hair a lot. The main reason I chose this range is because it does not rip my hair colour off. By using this shampoo and conditioner duo, my colour stays there for quite a good number of days.

  1. you are not alone trust me, I am 24 and already have so many grey hairs *cry* *cry* but I guess it’s common these days, on ur recommendation I am going to try the L’Oreal Casting Creme without ammonia, hope it works well for me too 🙂

    1. Ohhh! Trust me Sonia, Loreal Casting creme works wonders. Ppl say that coloring hair will cause lot of damage to hair cuz of chemicals in it but i swear by casting creme every tym 🙂 It makes my hair sooo soft and smooth that it looks like i just visited salon for a hair spa *pompom*

        1. Firstly i colored my hair globally. Then as my hair starts growing, my roots come up as grey hair. So in a mnth my hair growth is gnrly 1.5 to 2 inches. So i colour my hair every 20 days. I use the loreal casting creme two times- half of it for one touch up and remaining half for nxt tym. And once in 8 mnths i do a global color. My hair is basically thick and waist length long, so it takes 2 packs of casting creme for global color. Hope this helps 🙂

          1. There is no particular time gap to re apply the colour. If u feel tht u can see the grey hair and thts annoying u , u can go ahead and colour it… best is to take a min of 15 to 20 days gap 🙂

  2. I am in the same boat too…i am just 25…using Black cherry 360….But i have heard that we must use the same company shampoo and conditioner…is that true?because i am using loreal shampoo from last 2 years and want a change

    1. I dont think we need to use the shampoo and conditioner from the same brand. I tried lot many shampoos and difnrt conditioners before i settled to TBS rainforest and HE color me happy. I reely wana try Locctaine now but it burns a hugeee hole n my pocket 🙁

      1. *thankyou* for replying…will try HE now as it is at a reasonable price and an awesome post as it is so genuine post… *thankyou*

  3. lovely review *clap* *clap* I will give this a try as I have coloured hair *happy dance* thanks for the review *haan ji*
