Herbal Essence Naked Review

The product I was asked to review is the Herbal Essences Naked Hair Care 4 Piece Set, which is a Limited Edition Walmart Online Exclusive; the sets are on sale for $12.99, while supplies last. I ordered my Hair Care set on December 21st and received it the day after Christmas, so shipping is pretty fast on this item. The set includes:
  • Naked Volume Shampoo- Contains zero heavy residues, dyes and parabens
  • Naked Volume Conditioner- Contains zero heavy residues, dyes and parabens
  • Volumizing SoufflĂ©- Weightlessly boosts hair for luscious volume
  • Dry Shampoo- Instantly absorbs excess oil

I have fine hair, which means my hair is extra flat and static during the winter, so this is actually a horrible time to write a review on a shampoo and conditioner. After using the Herbal Essences Naked shampoo and conditioner, there's no difference to my hair and I'll have the same results with any other shampoo I use. Just to give you an example on how horrendous my hair acts in the winter, below is a picture of my static hair three hours after taking a shower (using the Naked shampoo).

When it comes to the shampoo and conditioner, my results are inconclusive, I can't give it a good or a bad grade because my hair hates winter. The one thing I can say about it though, is that the shampoo smells FANTASTIC, it's a mixture of grapefruit and mint and I'm totally in love with it; the conditioner has the same scent, but it's more subdued.

The Volumizing Souffle was probably my favorite out of all the products. It's a very light weight mousse, with the same great grapefruit/mint scent. The souffle went in easy and didn't leave my hair looking greasy like some hair products have in the past, it actually helped reduce my static loving hair and plumped it up a little. My only complaint about it is that, it comes out of the bottle fast and in more quantity then I want; my hair is short, so a little goes a long way.

 Finally, the dry shampoo. Once again, inconclusive. I have to shower everyday otherwise my hair gets a really greasy look to it and while the dry shampoo is made for that, after using it my hair got super static. The scent is the nice the grapefruit/mint smell, but with a hint of hair spray smell, it's not overwhelming though.

I wish I could write a better review on the Herbal Essence Naked Hair Care set, but Vermont winters kill my hair, I have to wear my hair up most of the time no matter what hair products I use because of it. This is one product that you're going to buy somewhat blindly and choose whether you like it or not, I just can't give you my two cents in this weather.
