Herbally Ever After with Herbal Essences 40th Birthday Competition

When I was asked to write a post about Herbal Essences' 40th Birthday and their fantastic new special edition range, Herbally Ever After, I obviously started thinking about my own Herbal Essences experience. The first thing I worked out was that I have been using Herbal Essences for over 15 years. 15 YEARS!

So what makes Herbal Essences one of my longest and most loved brand relationships? Well, that's easy. I think my Herbal love affair started at school when a friend's hair smelt ridiculously good and I obviously copied them, or perhaps even more powerful to a 12 year old girl - a boy I fancied once said my hair smelt good. You will then obviously use Herbal Essences forever. Like me.

To celebrate their 40th year, Herbal Essences have released the gorgeous Herbally Ever After limited edition bottles. I've tried and tested the the new 'Breakage Defender Formula' shampoo and conditioner duo and really love it. I've put my regular Herbal Essences 'Beautiful Ends' on hold as I'm really loving the Herbally Ever After range. As always, the conditioner is my favourite thing about Herbal Essence as it's so rich and nourishing and seems to be the only brand that will nurture my dried, dyed ends without weighing my hair down. And check out the shine! I'm really impressed.

Now the fun bit! Herbal Essences want to hear all about your Herbal Essences memories - what was your best Herbal Essences hair day? When did you have your first Herbal moment?
