Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong Conditioner

Friday, June 14, 2013

Promises: With a touch of 100% natural honey extract. This rich and creamy conditioner provides strength against damage and helps repair damage to smoothness for silky locks you will love.

Directions: Massage in this oh-so-creamy conditioner. Rinse and feel the revival.

Ingredients: Water/Eau, Stearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Alcohol, Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone, Honey/Miel, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit Extract, Fragrance/Parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Blue 1, Yellow 5, Red 33.

Truth: This conditioner is very good. There has been a lot of rave reviews about the "Honey, I'm Strong" line, the conditioner in particular, and I must say that the conditioner lives up to the hype. I've used it as co-wash conditioner at least once a week for the past couple months and it leaves my hair feeling incredibly smooth, soft and moisturized. This conditioner claims to strengthen the hair; however, my hair did not feel stronger or more resilient after using the "Honey, I'm Strong" conditioner. If anything, my hair felt much more moisturized as opposed to strengthened. It has a very thick and creamy yellow consistency (similar to Hello Hydration, probably thicker). I find it very easy to apply to wet/damp hair; however, you must rinse thoroughly to ensure that the conditioner is completely removed from the hair. I really love the scent. It has a very sweet smell that reminds me of candy. The scent also lingers in the hair once the hair is dry. I find that my hair is noticeably fluffy and full of volume after using this conditioner, which is a plus. Does this conditioner compare to my Hello Hydration? Very close... but not quite. I find the detangling abilities in the Hello Hydration conditioner much stronger in comparison to the "Honey, I'm Strong" - that's the main reason why I can't part ways with it. Don't get me wrong, it does have a lot of slip! Will I repurchase "Honey, I'm Strong" conditioner? Probably, it's a great instant conditioner! But it will not replace my Hello Hydration :)

  1. Great review. I was totally tempted to purchase this one instead of Hello Hydration a couple of weeks ago. Glad that I didn't.


    1. Thank you hun! You can't go wrong with either one :)

  2. I bought this conditioner this year in the dead of winter and it made my 4B/4C TWA super moist. So I stuck it way back in my bathroom cabinet. So since you gave it a good review, I will revisit it again for another try. I do love the Garnier conditioner with Argan Oil for cowashing though. :)

    1. Awesome! It has great moisturizing capabilities. No doubt about that :)

  3. I bought this conditioner on sale and have yet to try bcuz I have soooo many products that I haven't got to it yet. But this review makes me want to crack that bottle open.


  4. I definitely need to try these herbal essences conditoners before next year

    1. It's definitely worth it. I recommend Hello Hydration and Honey I'm Strong. Long term is wonderful too.

  5. What I like most with Herbal Essences products is the scent. It stays long on your hair and feels always fresh all day. Great review! Cheers.

  6. I have heard such good things about the honey line. I may need to give it a try. Did you notice any type of buildup from the cones?


  7. I'm definitely gonna give this a try especially because my hair loves anything with honey!
    Awesome review. :-)

  8. I used hello hydration conditioner n add honey to that every once and awhile for shine so I might give this a try instead. Thanks
