As someone who has super fine, thin hair I'm always on the lookout for products to give me the volume I crave. Recently I was invited to try Herbal Essences Naked Volume line. Not only does it claim to give you voluptuous hair, but do so without parabans, silicones and colorants. I tested the whole line, shampoo, conditioner and volume soufflé (a mousse).
First up, the shampoo. Like all Herbal Essences products, it smells fantastic. It has a wonderful mint scent to it that I just love. It really awakens the senses and helps uplift my mood. It lathers well and leaves my hair feeling clean. It is similar to a clarifying shampoo, which is good, but I feel like this isn't a shampoo I would like to use daily (yes I wash my hair daily, it's short and looks blah otherwise).
Next up, the conditioner. Yes it smells heavenly but I feel like it doesn't condition enough. I use nearly twice as much as I normally would. It doesn't weigh my hair down much though so I give it points for that.
Finally, the volumizing soufflé. Honestly, I don't like it. It smells great but really lacks in every other way. I didn't get any lift from it whatsoever, if anything it weighed my hair down. It also did nothing to create or hold my style. Literally nothing. I will not be purchasing this in the future.
All in all, the shampoo and conditioner are decent. I would consider buying them in the future however they wouldn't be my first choice.
*I received these products free for testing purposes. As always, my review is genuine.
