Drugstore Buy of the Week - Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong Hair Line

Herbal Essences are know for their amazing scents, but their latest line, Honey I'm Strong, is also a very good product for protecting and strengthening those strands. The scent is a delicious apricot with a touch of honey. It's very prominent, but not overbearing. It's definitely a scent that will make your shampoo session more enjoyable! 

The shampoo was think and silky in texture, and after rinsing, my hair felt soft and smooth and very clean without residue. However, since this product is one that uses ingredients to Coats each hair strand to help repair the protective outer layer, I did feel a slight "waxiness" along the strands. 

However, this didn't interfere with the movement or weight of the hair. The conditioner is even more amazing. It really works to soften and strengthen the ends (great if you do a lot of heat styling and chemical processes like relaxers and color). It's on the thicker side as well, so if you have fine/thin hair, I recommend using either just the conditioner for a co-wash, or just a smaller amount only on the ends/visible damaged/stressed areas of hair. 

When dry, hair is noticeably much less frizzy, and maintains a smoother appearance and looked healthy. This is a fantastic duo to fight dry, dull hair as it keeps it moisturized. Using this will heat also gave me nice results paired with a thermal protection spray.  

Note: There is also a leave in treatment that is great for seriously damaged hair or when you want to really pamper yourself. 

Tip: Mix some of the conditioner in a spray bottle with water and it makes an excellent detangler for curly hair. - RLB
