Pros: smells good
Cons: Does nothing for the hair. Oh and IT ALMOST KILLED ME!
In my experience the Green Tea & Cucumber shampoo performs more like a clarifying shampoo than the lightly moisturizing and conditioning formula they claim it is. Using the shampoo left my hair feeling and looking dull, limp and flat and it desperately needed a moisture boost afterward.
The Foam Conditioner has the same super intense, green floral scent that reminds me of the old school Healing Garden Green Tea Therapy by Coty bath & body fragrance. I think the scent's quite overpowering and headache inducing.
The texture is dense, fluffy and thicker than your average hair mousse. I think when you use the Foam Conditioner what you're really paying for is the fun factor of shaking up and pumping out a thick, rich foam from the canister. Herbal Essences does make a 13.5 oz bottle of traditional conditioner formula in the Green Tea & Cucumber scent, the same size as their shampoo. However, with the Foam Conditioner you're only getting 6 oz which is less than half that.
I honestly didn't find this conditioner to be moisturizing at all and the combination of the Green Tea & Cucumber Shampoo and Foam Conditioner left my hair looking like straw. I personally get far better results from my usual drugstore 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner.
I had to use way too much to have even coverage and when I rinsed it completely rinsed out, to the point that I couldn't tell I had even used conditioner at all. I'd hoped it would have an after shower effect but it didn't at all. My hair was so dry, as much so or possibly even worse than if I had only shampooed. My scalp also felt way too dried out, even after the first use.

The results were actually quite impressive! Even though I didn't get that "conditioned" feeling, my hair smelled great and was soft and manageable. After using this foam conditioner a few times I feel like it works really well to improve the wave pattern in my 2a hair since it's not weighed down. Another major concern I normally have is brassiness with my blonde hair and I do not feel like this is contributing to that at all as some other shampoos and conditioners have.
I will say that I did have some reservations about the ingredients of the shampoo since both the shampoo and conditioner claim to be pH balanced and color safe (despite the shampoo containing sulfates), but I am pleased to say that the ingredients for the conditioner do not show any sulfates OR silicones, which is a huge benefit for me. The lack of silicones is most likely what prevents the "conditioned" feeling but also keeps the foam nice and light instead of weighing hair down.
TL:DR; I really liked this product and enjoy the concept. I would definitely buy it again and I truly feel like it is an excellent value.
I really liked using this product. I am usually very sensitive to products whether I am using them on my face or body - I will break out in hives, itch, get acne bumps, red splotches, or the scent will be too strong for my liking.
At first, I was concerned about this conditioner being a foam, as I have never used a product like it before, but it actually worked better than I thought it would. My hair is really long and thick, so I do feel that I will run out of the foam product much quicker than a traditional conditioner, but the experience was fun and unique, and the foam actually did a great job, and I think I would prefer it over a more traditional conditioner if I had thinner and shorter hair.
Much like the shampoo, the scent of this conditioner was light but lasting and great smelling. The conditioner paired with the shampoo kept my hair looking beautiful, clean, and smelling nice. This product did not weigh my hair down or make it look oil/greasy, even when using it close to my hair line and on the top of my head (which is where I have the most problems with conditioner oiliness). This conditioner also helped to detangle my hair and make it feel so soft, and I did not have much frizz either, which is rare for me. Like the shampoo, this conditioner meshed well with my dyed hair and did not harm the color at all. This conditioner is another gentle yet effective product.
Overall, I really liked this conditioner, and again, I was surprised by the quality, and I enjoy the price point and availability as well. I will also continue to use this product until I run out, and then try the volumizing line.
At first I was excited to see this be bio. Renew line as I'm always looking for a more natural line and eco friendly. (I was most excited to try this new "foaming conditioner" as I've never heard of anything like it!) It is also made in a plant that is involved in renewable wind energy which seemed great. Unfortunately i started reading the ingredients and was sad to see some sulfates and fragrances that are typically on list of ingredients to avoid such as the "never" list. However, the fragrance itself seemed light (and refreshing) and the product did exclude parabens and colorants so it's leading in the right direction and I decided to give it a try.
Regarding the shampoo, right from the first time I used it my hair responded well. It seemed to be very well cleaned and no residue was left behind. After a few more uses the feeling remained the same, did a good job of cleaning my hair and left it feeling nice!
The foaming conditioner was quite an experience! My first use I definitely overestimated and pumped way more than I needed so be careful on that one! I or it soak into my hair and the rinsed as directed. I didn't get that immediately soft and conditioned feeling like I do with other conditioners, but it felt and smelt nice. After the shower I started blow drying my hair and could start to see a difference. The bottle does what it claims! My hair felt soft, but light! Which is definitely not easy for my normal thick weighed down hair! Same with the shampoo, the results seemed consistent from use to use.
Overall I'm giving this product 3 stars. Knowing the price point, id consider purchasing again if I needed a good cheap shampoo or conditioner either last minute or for travel. I probably wouldn't switch to it full time because of some of the ingredients and I didn't feel like it was anything extrodinary, but certainly not bad. I'm happy to have tried them and am glad herbal essence seems to be moving into a great direction as a company with this bio renew line!
I must say the foaming conditioner was an experience. I had some trouble getting it out of the bottle. The button was a little hard to press down. But i used as directed and put a palm size amount in my hair and let it soak in and then rinsed our.I did not get the soft and conditioned feel you get with regular conditioners which made me question if this really works.
After my shower I aired dried my hair like a typically do and was surprised at how soft and light my hair felt. The product did work.
I have fine/this hair so I can not attest for thicker hair. But the product did the job but I don’t think It is anything spectacular. I don’t know that I would buy this again because I was not a fan of the scent or the difficulty of getting it out of the can.
