Hey friends! How are you today? Okay so did you see The Bachelor the past 2 nights?! I just can’t even. If you have no idea what I’m talking about just Google, Arie… after you read this of course! :) Onto the post… I just had to say something tho. So I LOVE Shampoo & Conditioner, I feel like my shower is overrun with the stuff. I just started trying the new Micellar Water Shampoo + Foam Conditioner by Herbal Essences and I can’t wait to share my thoughts. Keep reading to see.
Micellar Water + Foam Conditioner Review
I heard about these two products from one of my favorite Hair YouTubers, Kayley Melissa (she’s amazing at braids). She raved about this combo in one of her recent vids, so when I saw them at the drugstore, I knew I had to give them a try. I wasn’t sure what to except, and recently I feel like I’ve become a shampoo and conditioner snob. But I definitely wanted to see what this was all about.
We’ve all heard of Micellar Water to cleanse our face or to take off that leftover eyeliner we forgot to get, but have we heard of using it in our hair?
Herbal Essences decided to get innovative and give it a try, here is what they say…
Blue Ginger & Micellar Water Shampoo.
Refresh flat, limp hair with Herbal Essences bio:renew Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo. Using the gentle cleansing power of micelles, this color-safe, pH-balanced formula lifts dirt, oil and other impurities from every strand to add dimension and volume.
Crafted with bio:renew, their signature blend of essential antioxidants, aloe and sea kelp, Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo also helps purify and protect against impurities to bring your hair back to life. Free of silicones, parabens, gluten and colorants, Micellar Water & Blue Ginger Shampoo refreshes as it infuses notes of ginger blossom, floral bouquets and clean musk into your hair.
What I think.
This shampoo is SO good! I am totally blown away. I have blonde hair, if you haven’t seen any pictures of me, with that being said, I use purple shampoo A LOT… like every time I wash my hair A LOT. It works great for me, but sometimes it kind of turns my hair purple, or it really tones my hair too much. This shampoo is amazing at really cleansing the hair and scalp and removing any product build up or (purple shampoo).

What I think.
I was honestly not sure what to expect with a foam conditioner. This was my first experience with something like this. I typically use a lot of conditioner because my hair is pretty prone to tangles, but my hair tends to get oily quickly, so I was hoping this would condition my hair and make it tangle free, but not make my scalp super greasy. Let me just tell you, I am SO into this foam conditioner. It is so lightweight that it doesn’t weigh my hair down with product, but it works perfectly at detangling my hair.
How to Use.
1. Wash your hair with shampoo first, I recommend the Micellar Water one above.
2. Shake well. Apply a palm-size amount of conditioning foam from the roots all the way to the tips. Adjust the amount according to your hair length.
3. Let it absorb into the hair, then rinse it off.
4. Dry and style your hair as usual-enjoy hair full of life. Use with every wash.

I am blown away by this combo! The shower experience is great, both products smell amazing, the shampoo lathers up great, the conditioner feels amazing going on and when it is washed out. My hair is so soft straight out of the shower. All of that is great, but when you notice if a shampoo and conditioner are great, is when your hair is dry and you style it. This combo makes my hair so lightweight and airy that it just looks great. It looks very healthy, shiny, and full of life after I use these. I usually wash my hair every other day, but with this combo I can go longer between washes, which makes my heart happy. I only use this once a week for now and I use my purple shampoo the rest of the week. But I HIGHLY recommend checking both of these out. You will not be disappointed!
What is your favorite shampoo & conditioner? I would love to hear about it in the comments!
