Herbal Essences Self-Targeting Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Okay, time to tackle this "Upcoming" list ... Seems like anything that goes on that list doesn't seem to be written about xD Such is life - new things happen that makes for new posts : )

I love Herbal Essences and I have been using their shampoos and conditioners for EVER. For the past month or two I have been using their Self-Targeting Shampoo and Conditioner (the pink set in the picture above). Like all Herbal Essences products, they smell wonderful and cost close to nothing ($3 or so for each shampoo/conditioner - it costs slightly more than a normal Herbal Essences shampoo/conditioner of the same volume). This set has beautiful swirls in the shampoo ^__^ (Easily amused) And admit it - you read the trivia on the back too ...

My hair feels stronger and thicker after using Self-Targeting, but unfortunately even letting the conditioner soak in will not combat dry winter scalps. I would say the drying effect is probably the only con. Meanwhile, my hair is shinier and healthier looking. It's no panacea, but it's pretty good!

I have used the others, but without the extensive time of Self-Targeting:
- Purple = Hydralicious, a moisture-rescue set: I only used the conditioner though. It made my hair smoother but straighter as well (decrease in volume).
- Orange = Featherweight, a set that gives your hair body. My hair did feel more feathery and the strands more separated, but I barely test-trailed this.

To sum it up:
Pros: Nice smell, strengthens hair, shinier and healthier, price
Cons: Dries out scalp
Rating: 8/10

I was not paid in any way for this review; these are my opinions after use. This product was purchased with my own money. Results may vary from person to person.

Uh oh. Shampoos/conditioners that dry out the scalp = a no no :(

Ahh, the days when I used to use Herbal Essences... their packaging is so different now!
