herbal essence has changed their ingredients

Thats right!!! You guessed it...They have a brand new line coming out in January, and they discontinued my favorite "Breaks Over"..The good news is that they have made "Hello Hydration" even more moisturizing..I don't know how they've done that..Also their website use to include the ingredients of the products..Well guess what??? they changed that to....They have a brand new product that's called "touchably smooth"..Its suppose to be a silkening product....Just thought I give a heads up to everyone who uses herbal essence

Hmmm....I'll leave the judgment until it comes out. I guess I can now spare $5 to get the jumbo sized bottle at walmart if they're changing the formula.
I bought a bottle of totally twisted a couple of weeks ago and noticed that it's not the same at all. They added behentrimonium methosulfate but it didn't perform the same and the fragrane is different. I think all of them have some form of silk in them.

Here's the differences
Old ingredients: Water, steryl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, lavender extract, crassula argentea extract, glutamic acid, fragrance, bis-aminoprpopyl dimethicone, benzyl alcohol, edta, citric acid, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, ext. violet 2.

New ingredients: Water, stearyl alcohol, behentrimonium methosulfate, wild cherry fruit extract, orchid extract, corn silk extract, fragrance, cetyl alcohol, bis-aminopropyl dimethicone, benzyl alcohol, dicetyldimonium chloride, disodium edta, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, red 33, blue 1.
Last relaxer: January 08

BC: December 08

First and only time going natural

I don'r know how they could even call that conditioner by the same name but.... i think I like the new ingredients better. contitioners with BTMS tend to be more smoothing to my hair and the corn silk. I may have to stop by target
hello hydration has sodium hydroxide in it now...Its probably just as a perservative or something like that...But nevertheless, it makes me a little nervous...

I'm a Drama Clean lover so I'm going to have to take a look at the ing's on that one. I don't know what I'll do if my beloved HE doesn't mesh with my hair any longer. I seriously might lose it... I've been using them consistently for about 2 years now.
4a/b hair that fro's more than curls!
Co-Wash: Tressemme', HE, Avon
Leave In: SM Shea Butter Conditioner. SMCH Smoothie
Deep Treat: Avon AT Masks, Henna, Amla, Avanti
Stylers: Aloe Vera Butter, Eco Styler on dry hair, SM products

Bumping to see if anyone else has tried the new versions... I'm going to DIE if Hello Hydration doesn't work for me. It makes frizz impossible and makes my coarse hair feel soft.
big chop: 03/09/2010.
modified cg.
medium/coarse | dense | normal porosity | 4b/3c with random sprinkles of 4a.

OMG, I still haven't tried any of the new versions... I'm so scared now.

Seriously guys, I don't know what I'll do if I can use this anymore. NO products works for me like HE, its the basis to everything after it. I'm so scared. But like I said, I think my sister got me a basket of it for Xmas so I'll be able to try them all.
4a/b hair that fro's more than curls!
Co-Wash: Tressemme', HE, Avon
Leave In: SM Shea Butter Conditioner. SMCH Smoothie

Herbal Essences is not for me. It makes my forehead break out like nobody's business. I'd JUST gotten it clear again and a trial of Hydralicious had cystic acne and zits all over the place. I nearly burst into tears

Big Chop: 11/25/09
Cottony/fluffy, medium/coarse, high density & porosity
SL - APL - BSB - BSL - MBL - WL - HL

Hair Type: Tight curls (a mix of 3c and 4a)
