Hello Hydration & who doesn't want a Long Term Relationship {GIVEAWAY}

Hello Hydration! Herbal Essences has revamped their hair care line. I was fortunate to review this line thanks to the kind folks at Palette PR. Palette is also sponsoring a Herbal Essences Giveaway so continue reading & you'll have a chance to win your own haircare products corresponding to your haircare needs, more details at the end of the post.
On to the review:
First up is Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo with a fusion of orchid & coconut milk. This is for dry hair which is me! For reference I have long, wavy, highlighted, thick, dry hair (whew!) & I need moisture. This shampoo is a milky blue shade & sort of looks like conditioner. Smells divine but not overbearing. This smells like coconut & vanilla, sort of beachy! Now does it moisturize...yes! Leaves hair tangle-free & does a good job cleansing the hair. Does moisturize however if your hair is not that dry try the other Herbal Essences shampoos as I had my sister try this too & she found that it left her hair limp (for reference her hair is more on the oily side but dry-ends & straight). However, for parched hair this could work for you & the frizzies!
Overall rating: 3/5

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner-
Looks similar to the shampoo but thicker. Works well on the frizzies & leaves you with smooth hair. All you need is a little & on ends only! If your hair likes 'cones than this will work for you.

Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship for Long Hair with a fusion of raspberry- I absolutely love the smell of this Long Term line, although it does smell raspberry/fruity its not an overbearing smell. This shampoo is a milky pink shade & a bit thick. Cleanses hair well (a bit more than the Hello Hydration) & leaves it soft.
Overall rating: 3/5
By the way you don't really need long hair to use this:)

Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Conditioner for Long Hair-
I really liked this conditioner! Left my hair tangle-free & soft. Also, my hair looked shinier. I also used this as a hair masque (leave-in for a few minutes) & hair was smoother & conditioned.
Overall rating:3.5/5

Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Leave-in Split Ends Protector-
If you abuse your hair with hair appliances than this leave-in is a good drugstore buy option. I used about a small dallop on wet hair, blowdryed my hair & I had no frizz. Hair was smooth & shiney. I also didn't feel the need to add any more product to my hair once dry (I usually put a few drops of a serum on ends). Hair smells really nice & fresh too!
Overall rating: 3/5
