Herbal Essences is a brand that I've used for years and years and I'm not ashamed to admit that I literally jumped up and down when I was invited to the launch event for their new Bio Renew collection. This line is all about going back to basics and combining science and nature to create a shampoo and conditioner duo for every hair type. I know it sounds simple but there's actually quite a bit more to it! I got to learn a lot about this range and the science behind it and I'm so excited to show some pictures from the event and the gorgeous products I got to take home with me!
The collection is built around a special blend of three key ingredients which work together to clean, hydrate and nourish the hair. The main ingredient in this blend is Histidine, an antioxidant and amino acid which works by trapping things such as free radicals and holds onto them until you wash your hair. It's almost like a magnet for impurities! There's also Aloe and Sea Kelp which infuse the hair with vitamins and minerals. 

All of the collection is formulated without parabens, silicones, gluten and colourants and is safe for colour treated hair. I think this is genius as it means you don't have to find a separate shampoo and conditioner for your colour which I know can be a right pain in the arse! There are 7 fragrances to choose from which include: Coconut Milk, Argan Oil, Golden Moringa Oil, White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint, Cucumber & Green Tea, Rosemary & Herbs and White Strawberry & Sweet Mint. 

My hair is fine, straight and overall pretty healthy but it does get greasy on the top and dry at the ends so I knew I wanted to try something that was going to clean and condition my hair without leaving a residue. There are two variants which are targeted towards normal/fine hair and I decided to go for the White Strawberry & Sweet Mint Shampoo & Conditioner* as it was the sweeter option. (If you've ever tried the Strawberry and Lime Trident Splash Chewing Gum, it basically smells like that!) 
I've already started using them both and I have to say that so far, I'm really impressed! The shampoo lathers up nicely and leaves my hair feeling clean but not stripped and the conditioner makes the mid lengths and ends of my hair feel super soft and nourished. Hubby's also been using the shampoo and he loves it, and not just because it smells like sweets!

I think they're onto a winner with this range and I would highly recommend checking it out for yourself!
