I have no problem splurging on color-safe hair products if 1) the quality is legit and/or 2) it smells good. I have tried many brands of conditioners since that’s what makes a real difference for my good hair days. Herbal Essences new bio:renew line is EWG approved and free of parabens, sulfates, dyes, and gluten. It feels like I’m applying liquid silk and leaves my hair extra soft and smelling great. IMO it is salon-brand comparable to Redken All Soft Conditioner, which is also great but triple the price eek!
