^ This is the US version which has coconut and mango! The local one is Lavender and Silk Protein Cream

At a Glance:
Price: RM13.90 (approx. US$3.86)
Weight: 160ml
Made in: Thailand
Likes: Smells really good, quite moisturizing, easily available!
Gripes: Doesn't really work! :S
Repurchase: Yes!
Jenn's Rating: 2.5 Stars! Would have given this 4.5 stars if it wasn't marketed as an anti breakage shampoo!


Product Description:

My formula, with an anti-breakage potion, strenghtens to help prevent any more breaks.

Actual Product Pic:

Texture & Scent:

This shampoo is quite runny, and it lathers up nicely though i find that you have to use abit more product to achieve a rich lather! This leaves my hair soft and tangle free (yes, that without using the conditioner!), and the smell is really nice! :D


This shampoo comes in a pratical plastic bottle with a flip top dispenser! Here's the outlet:

Price & Availability:
This shampoo is sold at RM13.90 each (but its almost always on sale). There's the bigger 300ml bottle version selling for RM15.90. This shampoo should be available at most Watsons / Guardian outlets as well as your local supermarket! :D

My $0.02:

Remember i said that i would give this one a try in my Pantene Hair Fall Control Shampoo review? Now that i'm done with the bottle i think its time to do a review on this product! :D

This shampoo is great! It cleanses my hair nicely without leaving it dry - in fact, i don't use conditioner anymore nowadays with this shampoo (and that says alot cuz my once-fried hair can never see the daylight without conditioning! lol!)! Also, the smell is really really nice! :D

Since i like it so much, why the low rating you ask? Well, this simply did not work to stop my hair from breaking!! *facepalms* The Pantene one does a much better job in that aspect!

Still, i'd repurchase this one because I really like how well it works as a normal shampoo! Will just have to rotate it with the Pantene one then! :D

  1. i'm using this shampoo too! it smell really good

  2. It does right?? :D I really like the scent! :D

  3. This range of shampoo and conditioner smells so good we gals are letting the scent rule our heads!!! I LOVE the moisturing Coconut and Orchid version. How did they get the fragrance of coconut so right, so mild yet sweet?

  4. Yes!! Have you ever tried the original Clairol Herbal Essences they had a few years ago?? Those are to die for! Wonder why did they discontinue those!!

  5. Do you mean the Green Herbs and Flowers version?
    That's the Clairol I love and miss too. Makes me think I just bathe using a garden of grass and flowers...

  6. Hun, if you're talking about the one i think you are... i miss that one too!!! I've used it as a child, and i would eat ants just to have it back on the shelves again!! :(

    The one i'm talking about is more current... probably about 10 years back only!! hahaha!! XD Will do a review on it soon!! :D

  7. I guess most of Herbal essence's shampoo smells nice. I'm so loyal to the color-me-shiny that has a rose scent. Lovely...And yup, it's good that it's often on sale.
