It’s not every day I find a drugstore beauty product I love, so I’m extra excited to share this new line of Herbal Essences shampoos and conditioners with you! I’ve been using the new bio:renew collections exclusively for the last month or so and I can truly say that my hair feels totally different. I’ve always been one that plays with my hair — bad habit, I know — but I’ve caught myself doing it even more than usual because it’s so. dang. soft! I’ve always struggled with super dry hair (thanks to coloring and heat styling) and I swear I’ve tried every hydrating mask on the market. But before I get into that, let’s back up… What is bio:renew? Herbal Essences just launched a brand new line consisting of nine different bio:renew collections, each targeting a different hair type and need to leave you with healthy and gorgeous hair.

Bows & Sequins Blonde Hair

We all know Herbal Essences for the intoxicating scents that elevate your shower experience, but each shampoo and conditioner in the new collection also contains bio:renew, a revolutionary technology made up of a blend of natural ingredients to revive dull, lifeless hair with every wash. I’m all about the science behind beauty so I found this bit to be super fascinating… The core ingredient in bio:renew is the antioxidant called Histidine. Similar to how super-foods work in your body, bio:renew purifies and protects hair from the inside out. It traps, neutralizes, and removes the build-up of free radicals that distress your hair. Think, everyday factors like pollution, coloring, sun exposure, and even water! Cool, right? Each formula is free of parabens and colorings, so you’re getting a premium product at the most-accessible of price points.

Bows & Sequins Beauty Review: Herbal Essences bio:renew Hydrating Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the Hydrating Coconut Milk collection might be my top pick. The scent makes me think of a tropical paradise, and my hair has never felt so soft and silky for days after washing. I love how it’s not a quick fix, like most other products I’ve tried. The Passion Flower & Rice Milk is another favorite… I even packed it to take to Cabo last week! It’s one of those where you’ll catch yourself smelling your own hair the rest of the day… Consider yourself warned. And the scent of the Arabica Coffee Fruit collection… OMG. You just have to try it! Intoxicating is the first word that comes to mind…

The Naked Moisture Rosemary & Herb is great, too! For this time of year when my hair has been through the ringer with winter weather, I need the heavier formulas like Coconut Milk and Passion Flower & Rice Milk. But when spring and summer finally roll around and my hair is more prone to feeling oily at the roots, I think I’ll be reaching for the Naked Moisture collection instead.

    I want the Tea-Lightfully shampoo back on the market here in San Diego, California. It was the best shampoo ever and I also used the Long Hair Pomegrante Conditioner along with it and they were both discontinued….WHY? These two products were sold off the shelve quickly. Please make these again.
