Robert asks…

Herbal Essences?

or Tresemme or Aussie?

Which one should I get for flyaways or frizzies after or before I straighten it?
Which one and which item?


vti answers:

Herbal essences definitly does work for frizzy hair, however Aussie not only keep them down, but, at least for me, it makes my hair shiny even after sleeping on it and everything, it makes your hair smooth and it smells good too. Aussie would definitly be my first pic but tressemme and herbal essences are great too. Dont use pert! We use that to wash my dog.

Paul asks…

Sunsilk vs. Herbal Essences??

Hey guys, I was just wondering about these 2 shampoo and conditioner brands. I was wondering which is better in your experience and opinion: makes hair shiny, nice, pretty, and anything else. I have straight brown hair, which goes a little past my shoulders. Please tell me which brand and why.


vti answers:

I like Herbal Essences better because I tried a few of the Sunsilk shampoo and conditioners and hated it. With the Sunsilk, it left a residue on my hair. No matter how long I stayed in the shower rinsing it out, after it dried it felt disgusting like I didn’t get it all out. I made sure I got it out, I’m talking washing it out for like 20 minutes with HOT water.

Tips and solutions for oily hair.

You’re using the wrong shampoo. Some shampoos are great for damaged, curly, wavy hair.
You’re having conditioner buildup. Some hair don’t need conditioner. I don’t!
You’re using oil on your hair, to protect your hair from straightening/curling tools.
You’re eating too many oily foods.
You’re shampooing frequently.
You’re using too many hair products: gel, mousse, you’re not letting your hair breath.
You’re going to bed with damp hair.
Your liquid make up or moisturizer can evaporate and touches your hair. Rinse your face well before going to bed.

After shampooing, use two towels (long hair) to absorb most of the water from your hair. Blow-dry only for 5 mins. Concentrate on the roots, before going to bed, if you’re shampooing before bed.

Find the cause then eliminate them.

I know hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing. I wash with shampoo every 4-5 days when it starts to get oily on my bangs, using Garnier for Normal Hair.

Hello Hyderation vs. Touchably Smooth ?? (Herbal Essences)?

I’ve been using the hello hydration from herbal essences for a good amount of time now and I love it. But recently I discovered the touchably smooth from the herbal essences line and I was not sure which one to use. I’ve seen people ask such questions but all the answers say none so plz don’t say that !

vti answers:

Herbal essences is made for people with smooth straight hair – don’t even bother. Post this over in men’s health – you’ll get better answers.

For what it’s worth, I like smooth n’ shine (it’s at target in the black hair care section). But then again, I have really kinky, wirey hair down to my elbows that requires a bullwhip and a 400 degree iron to tame.

David asks…

Dove, Pantene or Herbal Essences?

Hey everyone, I’m debating over dove, pantene or herbal essences.
I’m currently using herbal essences dangerously straight and I find it okay, it definitely smells great, but my hair gets oily often and this has nothing happened to me before, I have very fine hair.
I’ve used dove and pantene in the past, and their both okay.

What do you think? Most detailed answer gets best answer (: Thank you!

Well in the last few days I’ve looked at different shampoos. I myself have battled with fine hair all my life and I was looking for a shampoo that helps with oily hair. I wouldn’t use Dove cause the thing with one quarter moisturizer in it makes me think it will leave my hair greasy. I have used Herbal Essence but it didn’t clean well. With Pantene I found that they make them for different hair types and one especially for thin hair. I found that Aussie makes one called Cleanse and Mend. It says it’s for oily roots and it helps with frazzled ends. I just bought a bottle of it the other day. It has a money back guarantee on it. One link has three great reviews on the product. You can’t lose anything by tryiing it. If I had to choose though between those three products you mentioned, I’d choose Pantene cause they make one for thin hair and there are some tips on what not to do while washing. Http://

“Before getting into the shower, gently brush or finger-comb your hair to loosen up tangles and residue.
When washing your hair, leave hair hanging down and gently massage in shampoo starting at the roots and working down. Never pile hair on top of your head.
Wash with warm-not hot-water, and make sure to rinse thoroughly to prevent residue buildup, which can make hair flat, dull and hard to manage. Use Pantene Clarifying Shampoo once a week to help remove all residue for a squeaky-clean start.
For VOLUME, condition only the middle and ends of your hair where it’s most susceptible to damage. For super SHINE, condition the entire strand.”

Here’s a link on the product Aussie shampoo if you are intersted. I copied the info in case you can’t bring up the link.

“Product Description
cleanse and mend collection: Shampoo: Cease the grease and quench the tips of tired, frazzled hair. Conditioner: Rebalance your hair. Self-adjusting moisturizers hydrate tips and rinse clean at the roots. Sometimes your roots are greasy, your ends are frazzled, and your car won’t start. This helps two of those problems. Listen – we’ve all got problems. If yours include greasy roots and frazzled ends, Cleanse & Mend shampoo can cease the grease and quench the tips. If your problems include greasy tips and frazzled roots, you’re in deep trouble. Made in USA of US and/or imported ingredients.”

“This shampoo is wonderful. I have hair that is fine, long and oily. This shampoo cleans my hair without stripping it. I was looking to replace expensive salon products and I found it with the cleanse and mend line of shampoo and conditioner.

I never knew what clean hair felt like until I tried this shampoo and conditioner. I usually use Herbal Essence’s Long Term Relationship shampoo and conditioner and I always thought it was great, then I got bored of it and decided to try this product. The difference is amazing. The shampoo smells great and citrusy and lathers wonderfully, I love it! And the conditioner is great too, it goes on kind of weird and makes it seem like you didn’t put enough on because it kind of soaks into your hair quickly, but once you rinse, WOW. When my hair dried it felt SUPER soft, and CLEAN, this is what clean hair feels like, it’s amazing! No residue! And it doesn’t weigh my hair down. My hair is really thin and pin straight, and gets oily and greasy really fast, even right after washing with my normal shampoo, but not with this shampoo! I highly recommend this shampoo and conditioner, my hair smells great and feels great!

After Herbal Essences decided to do away with my favorite shampoo, I went in search of a replacement. I was happy to read the description of this one because it fit my hair type exactly – greasy roots and frazzled ends.

I tried this shampoo and the frazzled ends became worse! I was truly puzzled, and thought it was my imagination. I even purchased the conditioner and used it only on the ends but it just didn’t make a difference.

One of the other odd things that I noticed is that I had to use more of this shampoo to wash my hair. With other shampoos, I can get a smaller amount and start at the scalp and it will work through all the way to the tips. However, I had to use 2x as much of this shampoo, as it seems to just absorb itself into my scalp and won’t spread to the tips.

I have given it a fair shake; I’ve been using it for 6 weeks consistently. You may want to purchase this locally first before buying a 4 pack to see how well it works for you.”
