When I first heard about this product, I was kind of intrigued as to how Herbal Essences would approach the “naked” trend through their line of hair care products (We can thank Urban Decay for that trend). Herbal Essences has been a trusted hair care line in my life. I was introduced to this brand when I was in middle school, when Britney Spears used to be the face of this brand (of course being a die-hard Britney fan, I had to indulge). This brand has never really let me down. So I had to give their “Naked” line a whirl!
What is the “Naked” line of Shampoos/Conditioners?
According to Herbal Essences, the “naked” line of hair care products are made with a formula that does not have any heavy residues, parabens, silicones and dyes. Which makes this their most “natural” product in their hair care range. They have different systems for 3 different needs: Volume, Moisture, & Shine. Obviously, I went with the volume line because that’s a major concern with my hair. I find that I don’t have natural volume in my hair and I have to always add extra products and/or blowdry my hair (I prefer air-drying my hair).
What is the Naked Volume Shampoo and Conditioner?
The Naked Volume shampoo & conditioner claims that it will restore 100% of your hair’s natural body while making your strands feel revitalized and refreshed. This duo also promises you, your softest hair. The Naked range of products has a white grapefruit/mint fragrance to it. According to the makers, since the product is infused with mint oil, it’s nature’s way of invigorating. Along with adding fragrances and volume, these products are meant to gently cleanse the hair of residues to make each strand silky soft.
What was my verdict?
I’ve used this for about 3 weeks now and I can safely say that this has become one of my favourite shampoo/conditioner duos from Herbal Essences. I love everything about both these products individually and when used together. It really has done wonders for my hair. Firstly, both the products live up to each one of their claims. The shampoo cleans out any hair product residue I have. In fact, after applying this to my hair, my hair feels squeaky clean. Which is perfect because when you use the conditioner right after, it brings the moisture back to your strands! It really feels like magic and this is what you want your shampoo/conditioner to do (when used together). Secondly, I love the smell! The fragrance is perfect. It’s citrusy, fresh, clean and it makes you want to whip your hair around in the shower (if you’ve seen Herbal Essences’ commercials, you know exactly what I’m talking about). The smell doesn’t linger that much, but there is a subtle fragrance left in your hair, which I absolutely love! Lastly, once I air-dried my hair, I noticed that my hair did have a little bounce to it! In fact, after 3 weeks of use, I’ve noticed that my hair is way more volumized than it was when I first used this product (that too without blowdrying or adding extra hair products). My hair was also softer than usual and that is exactly what I wanted from a shampoo/conditioner duo! I didn’t see any hair fall out nor did it damage my colour treated hair at all! I definitely love this hair care line and recommend everyone to try it at least once! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of their other hair care products from this line (particularly the dry shampoo and mousse). You can purchase this at any drugstore that sells Herbal Essences products (I believe together they are less than $10 CDN).
