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.
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.
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 have to admit upon first use I was afraid I was going to be disappointed. My hair is a type that requires conditioner. It is a bit damaged and without conditioner, it is a tangled mess impossible to brush smooth. When I applied the conditioner to my hair the foam seemed to melt in my hair. There was no slimy conditioner feeling that you get with a typical product. My first thought was "OH NO" I just knew I wasn't going to be able to brush my hair afterward. I even went as far as trying to add more foam to my hair to see if my problem was just using too little, no change with the added product. I let the conditioner sit in my hair for 2-3 minutes. After my shower, I hesitantly set out to brush my hair and was pleasantly surprised to find that the brush combed smoothly through with little to no tangles. When I dried my hair It was bouncy as if I hadn't used a conditioner but soft at the same time, the perfect mix.
I personally still enjoy the slimy silky smooth feeling of a traditional conditioner, but I very much appreciate the lightness of this conditioner with the same tangle free outcome. I would recommend this product to people Who need condition but avoid using it because it makes their hair flat. Really its kind of a game changer!!
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.
Pros: smells good
Cons: Does nothing for the hair. Oh and IT ALMOST KILLED ME!
Packaging: The can itself is appealing. It's eyecatching but not an eye sore. It's very subtle decor would best be described as "cute". The can is the same as you would get if you bought hair mousse.
First thoughts: How is this actually a conditioner? How will something this texture work to condition hair?
Fragrance: Although I do not believe it smells like cucumber and green tea, the scent is a pleasantly fresh smell. At first it can be a bit overbearing when initially used, however, the lingering scent in my hair was light and clean scent. Thoroughly enjoyed the fragrance.
Overall: Although I loved the fragrance and enjoyed the simple but presentable packaging, that's about all I really admired about this product. My hair has been a bit dry and flaky due to coloring and stress, and gets oily after a few days of my fingers running through it, but to my disappointment, this conditioner did not make the biggest difference in my hair. I'm still flaky and my hair feels just as dry as it did before using it multiple times. However, it did put a bit more time between clean and that oily phase. Also, the shampoo is paraben free but not sulfate free. It says it's safe for colored hair... sulfates wash out color! Bummer!
Pros: Fresh scent, hair gets oily less frequently, washes out easily, light and doesn't weigh down hair like normal conditioners.
Cons: Hair remained flaky, conditions but not well, has sulfates that wash out hair coloring, makes my head itchy hours after hair dries.
I was super excited when I saw this foam conditioner was a part of the voxbox. Who wouldn’t want to try a new fad FOAM conditioner? I was interested to see how it would work and if it would really be more lightweight than traditional cream conditioners.
Much to my delight this stuff is great! First off it smells magical, fresh and spa-like. My first use, I grabbed a quarter sized dollop of the foam conditioner and combed it through my hair. A little goes a long way! I really only need about a dime sized amount for mid length hair. After applying I felt like the product disappeared and was a bit concerned it wouldn’t actually condition my hair. I let it sit, finished my shower tasks and rinsed. The conditioner rinses out very easily and left my hair feeling soft and airy. I was really surprised at how much lighter it felt after just one use. My scalp is typically pretty oily, so I usually avoid frequent conditioning at the roots— but I’ve been using this daily for about a week now on my either head and have yet to notice any added greasy feel!
Styling was really the test for me since I love curling my hair. If my hair isn’t as weighed down by product it should produce light curls right? Right! I didn’t notice a huge difference day 1, but by day 3 of the Bio:Renew regimen I noticed super free and flowy natural looking curls. I would definitely recommend this product!
First of all, this conditioner smells amazing. The notes of green tea, water lily and clean amber have received me so many compliments since I began using this product.
I have never used a foam conditioner before and it was interesting. I usually only condition the ends of my hair, but the directions told me to begin at the scalp and work it through the strands, so I did. I let it absorb in my hair for several minutes before I washed it out. Since my hair is so thick, I felt like I had to use a lot, which isn't super great for me if I have to replace it every few weeks. However, it was easy to rinse out and felt like I was putting a texturizing mousse in my hair, instead of a conditioner.
After use, my hair is really soft. My strands feel separated and light. My hair tends to get weighed down when blow-drying because it tends to stick together, but since using this conditioner, my hair has been easier to dry because there is no more stickness.
I curl my hair almost everyday and this product allows my waves to have lots of volume. It's almost fluffy. My waves still hold through the whole day with this conditioner.
