Herbally Ever After...and an amazing giveaway!

So in 2012, Herbal Essences turned 40!  To celebrate Herbal Essences took to Facebook to ask fans to vote for on a name for their celebratory collection - and the winner was......Herbally Ever After! Such a cute name.  

It's packaged beautifully in a limited edition design and the range is targeted as Breakage Defender - to help prevented combing damage.  Definitely a plus for anyone with thick, naturally curly/wavy hair like me!  Herbal Essences state that 'the result should be soft, replenished, stronger-looking, gorgeous birthday-worthy hair'.  The back of the packages gives some tips on how to achieve this. Finally I have to say that the scent is gorgeous but when isn't it.

Now to continue it's celebration Herbal Essences have re-invented some of their old favourites and added to  some new products to the ranges as well.  I have to say over the years I have used a few different ranges given my hair type and I tend vary and mix between them:

*Hello Hydration - Hawaiian coconut and orchid flower
Beautiful Ends – red raspberry and silk extracts

Tousle Me Softly - Wild Violet and juicy Pomegranate fragrance
*Seductively Straight - Pink Lily and Asian Silk
Smooth & Soft - Mandarin and Pearl Extracts

*must haves for the frizzy, curly girls out there
Absolutely love the scent of the Beautiful Ends and it's definitely my favourite of the collection.
Finally to include everyone in their continued birthday celebrations there are running a competition with some fantastic prizes:
1st Prize- Cut & Blow Dry with Ben Cooke, Herbal’s celeb stylist, at Lockonego Salon (worth c. £300) in Central London
·         2nd Prize- a year’s supply of Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner
·         3RD Prize- a Herbal Essences Hamper

·     To be in with a chance of winning Herbal Essences want you to think about your favourite ranges or scents or memories of Herbal Essences. 
Now my memory of Herbal Essences is definitely their 90's advert - The Yes,Yes, Yes waterfall one!  This has actually been updated recently to include the fairy tale theme and you can check it out below.

Oh and when we were younger I remember that my little sister used to be obsessed with sniffing the shampoos and conditioners in the supermarket - especially Herbal Essences, and managed squirt the Herbal Essences one up her nose. 

Anyway to be in with a chance of winning, include your favourite memory/scent/range along with a contact email address below!

Competition open till 13th March 2013.

Good luck!

I have to agree with the The Yes,Yes, Yes waterfall one! It sure got my attention and looked fun. I adored the smell of everyone I have ever used but for me its ignite my colour, since dying. Love the way they lather up

I've been using Herbal Essences for the last 13 and have been hooked ever since. I've tried other conditioners and none of them compare to Herbal Essences for freeing up tangles. And the fragrance is AMAZING. My fave is the one for coloured/highlighted hair, Morocccan Rose & Passion Fruit extracts, I can smell it now!!!
