I bought this a while back because I LOVE the conditioner, and figured even if the shampoo is clear and a little stripping the conditioner would easily balance it out. Boy was I wrong, even with all my conditioning this shampoo totally dried out my hair. It was awful :( I've never ever thrown a bottle of full shampoo away but I threw this away cause it was terrible...however, the conditioner is amazing
I love the entire herbal essences line, except for their "color me happy" shampoo. This completely stripped my hair of color and dulled my color. Will not be purchasing again.
I really do love this shampoo and conditioner, i bought it one time when it was on sale and will continue too! i like to try different products to see whats out there but this will always be my go to shampoo and conditioner! it leaves my hair soft, smelling great and my color vibrant! i would recommend this product to anyone with color treated hair!
I am a hair product junkie! I have enough in my closet to start my own shop (so I'm told), LOL. I have spent so much money buying expensive hair care products that I ended up giving away because they did not live up to my needs. Since going to a very short, texturized cut for my very straight, course hair along with regular colorings and highlightings, I am always on the lookout for a great product that won't weigh down or dry out my hair further. I was shopping in Walmart one afternoon, and came across Herbal Essences Color Me Happy 2-1 shampoo/conditioner. I am trying to save money by not having to buy 2 bottles (shampoo & conditioner), since I also use a leave in conditioner anyway after shampooing. I decided to give this a try, and I love it! My hair is left feeling very shiny, smooth, easy to style, and it seems my highlights look brighter. I have been using this for about 2 weeks, and so far, so good. It doesn't build up, either. After washing once or twice (depending on how much hair spray I had on), I towel dry, then apply my Goldwell kerasilk instant silk fluid. It leaves my hair feeling great! I style my hair with a styling spray and curling iron, and I'm done! I no longer use hair gels, mousses, etc. because they tend to weigh my hair down too much. The downside is the packaging. It seems the shampoo tends to leak down the side of the bottle too much, so you have to be careful to close the lid after using. Also, it seems that I need to use a little more shampoo to get the job done, but the price is so reasonable, it's not a big deal. The scent isn't overpowering, but a nice clean, fruity scent. I think this shampoo definitely holds its own next to the expensive brands! You can get this between $5.00 and $6.00, depending on where you shop.
Iím really impressed with this. Iíve now been using this for a few weeks & the difference to my hair is remarkable.
As well as my (badly in need of a touch up) colour remaining bright, much less of my hair snaps & there are fewer knots. And my long hair has none to very little frizz, is smooth to the touch & when I pull a broken strand between my fingers it has elasticity to it, instead of snapping straight away like it used to.
The scent of this is divine & the price is fantastic. Iíll be re-buying.
This is the BEST shampoo I've ever used! The scent is heavenly, whenever I use it, my hair is just plain smooth. It's very inexpensive also, I like it. The only thing I have to say is the packaging quality. The look of the shampoo is tangly and fruity, but.. It runs out very fast. I just got this in the 2nd week of March, and I only have 3 more uses left. Otherwise, I love this shampoo.
I'm in love! This smells amazing (kind of like the original Herbal Essences) and makes my highlighted hair super soft and shiny! Definitely try it; it's worth it and inexpensive!
Love this shampoo!! I wash my hair every day (I have short hair and use products, therefore wash of of necessity), it has not ruined my colour, nor faded my hair. It smells great, the packaging is fun and girly, inexpensive, and it is gentle. I always follow up with the conditioner so I have not noticed any excessive dryness.
Very happy with this. Got it on sale for a good deal. Leaves my hair feeling clean and helps to keep my color looking vibrant. I love the berry scent as well as the undertones of classic herbal essences fragrance.
Love this shampoo, love the packaging, product, smell, everything!
I agree with other MUA'ers that the shampoo alone can be a little drying but when used with the conditioner (see separate review) it makes my coloured hair look beautiful. I have naturally oily hair and some shampoos make my air worse and dont clean my well but this makes my hair feel squeaky clean! I bought this and the conditioner for 2.00 GBP in my local asda superstore and am already half way through the shampook will definitely be repurchasing! Best shampoo i have used in a long time!
