Herbal Essences Shine Collection Shampoo sulfate free and Conditioner Silicone free




I bought this shampoo a few weeks ago and didn't expect much. I was pleased to see it was sulfate free shampoo and conditioner silicone free as I have chemically treated hair but beyond that assumed it would just be a typical shampoo.
I couldn't have been more wrong. I have noticeably softer, smoother, minimum  frizz hair. It works great in conjunction with a flat iron and gives me a fresh from the stylist look. I was so impressed because I really can see the difference now on my hair and I can really feel this product do something for my hair. I have fairly fine hair that is mostly straight, with a few stubborn waves and curls. This helped me smooth out my trouble spots but doesn't make my fine hair look too thin or flat. This herbal essences line smell great  and have a very good price I bought both shampoo and conditioner on walmart for only $10.


BENEFITS OF SULFATE AND SILICONE FREE HAIR PRODUCTS

1) you eliminate sulfate and silicone allergies.
2) Your hair remains healthy instead of being stripped.
3) you keep the oils that make look your hair healthy and shiny.
4) your hair will grow faster and stronger.
5) Keeping breakage to minimum.
6) The biggest benefit is that you may actually gain some hair volume because of the health of you scalp and hair follicles will improve without the irritation of sulfate or silicone on your shampoo or conditioner . So if you have a sensitive scalp, chronically dry or brittle hair, color treatments or perms, these are some of the reasons why sulfate and silicone free products are better for your hair.



NOTE: I bought this product with my own money.

    3. I just wanted to make a quick correction. The shampoo is silicone free and the conditioner is sulfate free. unfortunately when you read the ingredients the conditioner has silicone and the shampoo has sulfates =[. I was overall pleased with the product though.

  5. Most of the time it's not, but going to a salon isn't a weekly thing so it won't hurt if it's only once. Don't worry :-)

    1. That is what I don't understand either.... conditioner is always sulfate free and there are both sulfates in the shampoo. I almost bought it until I read the back of shampoo

    2. I noticed the same thing. So does that mean then that the shampoo has sulfate and conditioner has silicones?????

      Delete
  9. Yeah, I think Herbal Essences is trying to fool us. I read the labels: The shampoo has sulfates (but no silicones) and the conditioner has silicones (but no sulfates)...they put those no-sulfate and no-silicone banners on the bottles to mislead people.

  16. You realize that the conditioners are sulfate free and the shampoos are silicon free right? But the shampoo has sulfates and the conditioner has silicon. Silicon is something that goes in conditioner because it coats and smooths hair but sulfates strip hair of dirt and oil and whatever. So by saying that the shampoos are silicon free and the conditioners are sulfate free they are just using a marketing trick. So by using this shampoo and conditioner combo you ARE using sulfates and silicon. I'm shocked no ones noticed this yet.

    1. I've noticed this!

      I haven't found a shampoo that DOESN'T have some sort of a sulfate in it.

    2. You're ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! This is something a lot of people don't really know. Conditioners aren't supposed to HAVE sulfates... PERIOD.
      It's difficult finding a shampoo that is completely free of sulfates. The BAD sulfate that you have to look out for is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate.. SLS is DEFINITELY one of the top ingredients in this Herbal Essences line. The less abrasive sulfate that is ok to use is Sodium Laureth Sulfate. If you want a good shampoo that lathers, go with one that has LAURETH sulfate. Not LAURYL.

  17. Does it have any form of sulfates??

    I know a lot of companies will claim sulfate free but then slip in another type of sulfate that is just as drying and damaging.

    I don't know what it is, most people don't have the problems I do.. But I just can't wash with shampoo, and most conditioners. I've only found one routine that works that doesn't leave my hair dry and damaged afterwards. Most normal hair routines are awful for my hair.

  18. The shampoo has sulfates and the conditioner has silicones. They took advantage of the sulfate/silicone-free trend by putting some meaningless labels on their old products. Putting a "0% silicone" label on shampoo is meaningless. Same with "0% sulfate" on a conditioner. It would be like advertising water as 0% fat. Shame on them for trying to trick people.

  21. Great review Diana, there were so many talk and buzz regarding sulfate free shampoo lately, and many user prefer L'Oreal as the best sulfate free shampoo. Why not if you try it Diana?
