The product

Send your hair on a tropical holiday with haircare that’s nourishing, lightweight, hydrating and scented with the sweet smell of coconuts. 

Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo and Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Conditioner take the work out of washing your hair in exchange for hydrated and detangled lengths, smoothed frizz and flyaways, and softer strands.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say when they tried this hydrating holiday for hair.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo and Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Conditioner to a panel of women aged 18 and older with dry hair.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo and Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Conditioner.

They smoothed frizz and softened their hair: The hydrating shampoo and conditioner helped to moisturise strands, leaving reviewers hair smooth, soft and frizz-free. 

They made detangling a breeze: A number of our reviewers said they usually have issues with tangled and knotty hair but the shampoo and conditioner made detangling easier. 

The affordable price point: Some of our reviewers usually only use high-end haircare but they said they would happily use this shampoo and conditioner as it delivers similar results at a fraction of the price. 

The verdict

“I only buy salon hair products rather than supermarket brands. However [Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo] is amazing for the price. If you are on a budget, you should definitely buy this. My hair is so dry and damaged from bleach. It is hard to find a product that suits my hair type and that actually works. The smell is amazing. It reminds me of being on holidays and coconut oil. I absolutely loved it. I wash my hair twice per week and already feel the difference. My hair is smoother, it was so much easier to blow dry and the days when I didn't want to blow dry, it dried nicely with very minimal fly aways. 0% parabens were a bonus as I only buy products without this ingredient. My three daughters have long and thick gorgeous hair and I used it on them too. They loved washing their hair, which is usually a battle. They loved the smell and the fact they had a lot less knots when brushing. You honestly need the smallest amount which is great.”

“The [Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo] smells so good and lathers so well without drying out my hair. I have just used the vegan shampoo & conditioner, my hair feels like silk , the ends feel so smooth, I will definitely be buying this all the time now. My partner and I have wild curly hair that isn't always easy to control but my hair has been so soft with no frizz. When I opened the bottle, I loved the smell I put on my hair with the happy feeling of knowing there are no harsh chemicals left. My hair feels exceedingly clean and fresh. I will definitely buy it again.”

“[Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Conditioner] has a white creamy texture and marvelous floral coconut scent which reminds me of a tropical summer. Infusing its blend of essential antioxidants like sea kelp and aloe, it leaves my hair feeling rejuvenated, fresh and smooth. It also contains no parabens which is very good. [It’s] easy to apply and is easy to work through the strands of hair leaving it silky and soft. It leaves my hair hydrated and once air dried, my thick wavy hair is beautiful without needing extra effort or products. Frizz is gone and my ends feel nourished (without any use of other products).”

“Just like the shampoo, the first thing that caught my eye with [Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Conditioner] was the fact it is 0% parables and colourant free. The scent of this conditioner is to die for!! I felt like I was in a tropical oasis from the beginning of my hair washing process right till the end. The texture was wonderful… the conditioner spread evenly throughout my hair in an even coating. I left the conditioner on for 5 mins and throughout the process I could feel the conditioner conditioning my hair and getting softer and tangle free. When washing out it washed out easily and wasn’t heavy or left a residue behind. My hair was so so easy to brush, with bleached platinum hair this is super important as this has prevented so much breakage. Once dry my hair felt incredibly soft and the shine is to die for.”
