Clairol: Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo Review

herbal essences shampoo

Hello Beautiful,

Women with limp hair always crave for products, which can add more volume and make their thin hair look fuller. After my hair smoothening treatment, my hair has become really flat and I was looking for product that could add more volume to my hair. Many people swear by certain products and many shampoo make the same claim. One such product that claims to add volume to your hair is Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Shampoo by Clairol.

The shampoo comes in a clear see-through bottle with a red tint and the product is orange-yellow in color. It has a strong fruity smell of white nectarine and pink coral flower. The product comes with citrus essences and claims to add 100% body and volume to your hair with 0% build up.

My experience with the product

Herbal essences products are readily available at supermarkets. You can easily find them at your nearest Walgreens or Target stores or at any shop which sells shampoos. Body Envy is dedicated to those with normal hair and claims to add body and volume with no product build up. I have tried the shampoo several times but am only fond of the fragrance. It has a nice fruity fragrance but is loaded with chemicals. It doesn’t add any bounce or volume to my hair but have found it to be extremely drying. My husband has a dry scalp and he started having dandruff post its usage. The lather from the shampoo is good and rinses off well.
