Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo Review

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration ShampooHola, senoritas! I’ll tell you now that I am incomplete without this shampoo. This is my third bottle of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo 🙂 This line of Clairol’s Herbal Essences shampoo has been in the market for a while now. For my frizzy, moody hair I picked up the Herbal Essences moisture range which has a ‘fusion of orchid and coconut milk’ in it. It smells heavenly, fruity and not overly coconutty. The fragrance lasts for a little over a day unless you use post-wash hair products.

It is a big bottle containing 355 ml and is priced at INR 179. I have seen a tiny bottle of this in the Heritage supermarket (Bangaloreans will know) in case you want to give this a try. I bought the big bottle the first time and I never regretted it. And yes, the shampoo is light blue in colour. The Herbal Essences moisture range has a conditioner as well as a shampoo plus conditioner [2 in 1]. I used the shampoo plus conditioner and that combination did not work on my hair.

I love the simple, curvy packaging . It is a translucent bottle so you know how much product you are using. Also, the writing on the bottle is amusing! On the front it says, ‘Let me soak it to you’. On the back,

‘Repeat after me: I’m so quenched. It’s time to take every strand off dry land. Replenish your pretty, parched head with my formula fused with essential moisturizers and orchid & coconut milk. It leaves hair silky and supple. Want more moisture where I come from? Seek my happily hydrated conditioner.’

Use me: lather up, soak your head, rinse and repeat. Let your hair drink it up. Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo

I for one will not ‘seek’ the Herbal Essences conditioner hereafter. But I’m beyond satisfied with the shampoo!  It does what it says – makes your hair soft, shiny and silky! I switched to another shampoo after I finished my second bottle and I regretted it. I recently got a new Herbal Essences bottle and this is now my HG shampoo.

According to the Herbal Essences website, the science behind the shampoo goes like this – our hydro-activated silkening ingredients infuse strands with moisture, leaving them soft and smooth without all the build-up. Help say hello to hydration and help say goodbye to dry hair.

Pretty fascinating! They have shampoos for coloured hair, curly hair and straight hair. You cannot miss the huge colourful bottles on the shelf – pinks, greens, purples, blues.

  1. hmmmm.. am glad it worked for you… but it just didnt suit me 🙁 my hair turned drier than ever… now am using a L’Oreal shampoo and a pantene conditioner… that finally works for me!

    1. Maybe you used it without a conditioner… 1st timewhen I had bought this,even I did the same…made my hair very dry..bt if u use a conditioner alongwith this,it works fine.. 8)

  2. I am using Clairol Hello Hydration .. It is a very good product. It smells yummy… :bunny:
    but some may dislike the coconut milk smell.. :ghost:

  3. I loveeee this..I have both d shampoo and conditioner..both smell heavenly !! :inlove: :inlove:
    anuya..get the conditioner also…its damn gud..n d smell stays on for 2 days !!
    @princess : It does not have a coconuty smell..bt more of an orchid smell !! yumm…

  4. Glad this worked for you. When i tried it a couple of years ago it made my hair drier and frizzier than ever (even with the conditioner), although the smell is to die for. My current HG shampoo(s) are Plumped up Volume and Longer & Stronger by Sunsilk.

  5. I’ve tried most of the available herbal essences shamp/conditioners(except for curly hair)…they arent bad only that they leave my hair a bit dry…i have long hair which also gets frizzy so im waiting to try “long term relationship ” for long hair and “none of ur frizziness” for frizzy hair …has anyone used these 2?? and if yes ,how did they find the products?

    1. oh yeah and does anyone know where these 2 would be available in mumbai?? ive tried all possible stores which get imported cosmetics…they dont have “long term rel ” abd “none of ur friz” 🙁

      1. Hi Shanaiia
        Long term rel is amazing 🙂 i have used it for a while now.
        But now i switched to break’s over.
        I have tried all of herbal essences products and they’re super awesome
        You can find it at beauty centre 🙂 Mumbai

        1. i checked at beauty center c/market,khar then beauty palace c/market…beautiful ,alfa and few other stores…none of them had long term relationship 🙁 color me happy,hello hydration,drama clean,dangerously straight etc etc are available..

          nor did they have none of your frizziness

          i checked again like 10 days back 🙁 🙁 i guess i’ll have to call it from the US

  6. around two years back, I had done a major haul with herbals essence shampoos, conditioners and i bought so many at once……but none worked for me sadly……….glad it is working for you anuya :yes:

  7. i have been using herbal essence shampoo and conditioner since two years.
    I used to use the totally twisted
    then now i am using Break’s over.
    Hello hydration worked Okay for me 🙂
    I love, Breaks over 😀 :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
    But my friends said that they get a lot of HAIRFALL after using this .. 😐 😐 😐
    So after that, even i felt the same.Maybe it’s just because they said :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
    but yes it;s a great PRODUCT

  8. even i’ve dry frizzy hair….. thx for d review…. will giv this a try…… 🙂
    but u didn’t find the conditioner good?

    1. Hi Ramya. If you’ve been using a conditioner otherwise You should try this one out. FOr strange reason ANY conditioner makes my hair light and unmanageable…wonder why. the case could be different with you if you’ve been using one all along with another shampoo. A lot of the other users here said conditioner works so do give it a try:)

  9. Ive been using herbal Essence shampoos since I was 7 like on and off and I always find myself going back to them… although the old herbal essences shampoos work a lot better than their new range (though both are still available). I like Hello Hydration one but I have oily hair so its not the best product for me – I use Drama Clean now and I am sooo loving it :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

      1. OH yes, the small wider bottles i remember! I used them too – they smelled even better than the current ones I think! I haven’t seen them around for a long time now

  10. Hey! Scarlet, I am with you on this one…I just got the same shampoo last week from Health and Glow…and have used it twice…and I can already see the difference…:)

  11. I dont know if Im the only one but I love alll the HErbal Essences shampoo smells except this one. Im so unhappy that I just bought this and now I hate it…Dont wanna waste an entire bottle of it too! 🙁

  12. I just used it and also checked the ingredients.
    It contains ammonium lauryl sulfate,instead of harsh sodium lauryl sulfate.It has to be way more gentle.I only saw a few premium range body washed contain ALS before.
    It has to be good(and the statement is coming from a chemistry major),trust me.

  13. Hi, i have thick wavy frizzy hair & i started using herbal essences breaks over shampoo & hello hydration conditioner one week back,therez lot of hairfall :(((((,but i liked the herbal essences products,can any1 suggest which one would be better shampoo & conditioner in hb without hairfall.

  14. My concern is whether any one has experienced greying or whitening of hair after using this conditioner…bcz i am facing that problem…..
    Does herbal essence shampoo contain any particular chemical ( not found in any other shampoo that can have long term adverse effect on hair
