Herbal Essences Hydralicious Collection.

I have been a long time fan of Herbal Essences collection of shampoo and conditioner. Not only do I love the long-lasting scents., I love the way the duos make my hair look and feel. And the price? It can't be beat. The latest addition is the Hydralicious Collection and I'm loving everything about its swirled goodness.

The Hydralicious Collection includes three shampoos and three conditioners made with swirls of both clear and opaque cleansers and conditioners. They are hard to miss with their fun and funky swirled look. When combined with water, the swirls release moisturizers, wrapping hair in a thick, creamy lather for a fruit-filled, moisturizing treat.

If you want volume... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & Volume Boost. This one was created for hair that needs a boost of body and hydration due to the over effects of styling and everyday damage. I definitely over process my hair and need all the volume boosting power I can get, so this one is for me. The swirl acts like a butterfly net to give hair the moisture it need, but does so that is does not weight it down. That is so important, especially when you work so hair to give it the volume you want.

If your hair is dry... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & Silky Boost. This duo helps get the right balance of hydration where your hair needs it most. By giving extra conditioning to areas in need, dry ends  are left hydrated, smooth and shiny.

If your hair is damaged... choose Herbal Essences Hydralicious & De-Damage Boost. This pair was created for dry, damaged, frizz prone hair that need that extra bit of conditioning help. It also provided extra protection against those sources of dehydration (such as coloring and heat damage) to give your hair the smoothest, better looking hair you want.

Look for the new Herbal Essences Hydralicious Collection at your favorite drugstores and mass retails now. Each shampoo and conditioner sells for just $2.99 each.


Top 10 Moisturizers.

Best Skin Creams

Moisturizing the skin is an important step in maintaining healthy skin. It is that vital final step in your skincare routine both day and night. It needs to be applied daily (both day and night) to keep skin hydrated and basically working properly. Moisturizers do so much more than hydrate; they protect sensitive skin and improve skin tone and texture.
