About Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Shampoo Range

Herbal Essences Review Main Image

Even the minimalist has a shampoo in her hair care regime. Though essential, it is also most often lost in the shuffle when it comes to our grooming routines.

If you’re guilty of this, well, then it’s time to change your mindset. Your hair (and scalp!) is vastly important, so it’s time to show it the TLC it deserves.

Many of you may already be familiar with Herbal Essences as a brand. They have consistently delivered on shampoos and conditioners that help nourish and rejuvenate hair, so we were excited to hear about their recent bio:renew range, which promises to bring your hair back to life in just 21 days. Each one is formulated to work on a specific hair concern.

To find out if the bio:renew range is really as effective as it sounds, we asked our editor, as well as 20 Daily Vanity readers, to put it to the test and share with us their honest opinions.

Editor’s Review on Herbal Essences Bio-Renew Shampoo Range

Herbal Essences Biorenew Shampoo Review

If there’s anything that I look forward most to at the end of a long work day, it’ll definitely be hitting the shower. A warm shower never fails to rinse away any trace of fatigue and perk me up so I feel renewed.

This is probably why I’m quite particular about the bath products that I use.

I picked up the Herbal Essences bio:renew Rosemary & Herbs shampoo and conditioner for this review. Herbal Essences has been consistent with rolling out hair products that smell therapeutic and this one is no exception.

The herbaceous scent of the Herbal Essences Rosemary & Herbs shampoo and conditioner helps make shower-time extra indulgent and I find myself spending more time massaging my scalp with the product – probably a good thing for my grooming regime too.

I love that the scent lingered on even after my hair is dried. The calming scent also helps improve my sleep ritual.

Besides the pleasant scent, I also like that the formula lathers up easily and leaves hair feeling smooth and soft after rinsing off, although it doesn’t contain any silicone and is formulated with natural ingredients. The Rosemary & Herbs shampoo is designed to help moisturise hair, and my hair feel more lightweight and less dry after just one wash.

Loh Wen Xin: “I really enjoyed using the herbal essences shampoo I received! It lathers up really well and I find myself using less product but still achieving great cleansing results! As my hair is usually frizzy and on the dry side, I always have to apply some oil or serum after washing my hair. So, for the sake of testing this shampoo out, I didn’t do so for the past week. However, my hair remains looking shiny and smooth. I’m really pleased with how this shampoo and conditioner has worked wonders on my hair. The sweet vanilla scent is phenomenal as well, I can’t stop smelling my own hair after washing!”

Chua Xue Li: “I have long and thick hair which is really difficult to manage as it is dry and frizzy, but I’ve been using the shampoo and conditioner consistently for the past 1 week and I’m loving this range of products so far! It’s really great as my hair feels softer, smoother and healthier with a shine. It’s not as dry and frizzy as before, even after half a day. I’m definitely recommending my friends and getting the products for myself.”

Lim Qiu Min: “The shampoo and conditioner delivered on the qualities that are stated on the products. It is nourishing for my scalp, and the scent is just right. It also doesn’t feel greasy or smell after a day out, which usually occurs in Singapore’s hot and humid weather. Other shampoos that I’ve used are often too moisturising for my hair/ scalp, making it harder to dry my hair and flattening my hairstyle after perspiring, but this one doesn’t do that.”

Jeanie Chan: “After using this series the last week, my hair has smoothen quite a lot and I experience less hair breakage during shower and combing. The conditioner also doesn’t feel greasy on my hair, which prevents it from appearing limp. Both products don’t give me breakouts either. Not a huge fan of the smell but the products are effective.”

Ee Peishan Grace: “The passion flower and rice milk smells refreshing yet not overpowering, lasting me through a good 8hrs and leaving me with nice, soft locks. Upon my first shampoo, already I feel the difference as my hair was not all tangled up, even without using the conditioner, though I would have to say that the conditioner smells equally good and deliver great results too! I just had my hair colored two weeks ago, but my locks still feel shiny and soft to touch despite that. Herbal Essences has DEFINITELY made a breakthrough for me.”

Xiao Qing: “Herbal Essences is my childhood favourite shampoo, but as I grew older, I found other brands. The new series of their shampoo surprised me, though!. I have extremely damaged hair as I get it dyed often, but this shampoo and conditioner really helped with my tangles. My hair feels so soft and light after usage, and it smells amazing, with it the scent lasting the whole day. I would definitely purchase it to use again.”

Michelle Lim: “My hair condition was initially dry and brittle, but after trying this shampoo range just once, I am able to see results. My hair is much smoother and less tangled! I think the scent is nice, maybe a little sweet for me but I really like how the scent lasted for quite a while as compared to other brands. Overall satisfied and would totally recommend it to others!”

Tan Zi Hiang: “The product lathers really well and is very hydrating on my dry hair. After blow drying, I noticed that my hair texture became super smooth and moisturised, which normally isn’t the case even if I use more expensive shampoos and conditioners. My hair hardly tangles anymore and remains radiant(not oily) for a much longer time. Really impressed with the results and I would highly recommend it to my peers!”

Kelly Kuah: “The shampoo is a little drying for the hair ends after a few washes, although my scalp does feel less oily and itchy. The richness of the conditioner makes up for it, though. The range given to try was for moisture but based on the shampoo alone, it doesn’t seem to be that way.”

Tan Hui Ling: “Overall, I didn’t like the scent of the product as it doesn’t have any floral or fruity scent to it. Also, it makes my hair feel very dry after using it, as I have a oily scalp and dry hair ends. So I believe this product is not suitable for combination hair.”

The conditioner is an essential step that will help moisturise and smoothen your hair further.
