Remember when Clairol's Herbal Essences shampoo hit the haircare scene in 1972 and was all the rage?

If you haven't picked up the brand since then, The O Report recommends you try its new hydrating line of shampoos and conditioners made with coconut milk extract. We tried the Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner on a whim and were so pleased with the results it's now our favorite bargain brand.

That's why we weren't shocked when another product from the line, the Hydrate Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner, won a "Best Of The Test" study by Good Housekeeping magazine. Testers marveled at the hydrating results and raved that not only did it clean their hair the best, it also had the highest level of conditioning.

The O Report recommends her revolutionary Root Concealer Touch Up Spray because it expertly covers large patches of gray hairs at your roots and temples when you just can't make it to the salon - it will give you an extra week or two between color appointments. It's safe for all hair types, is super easy to apply, dries quickly and stays put until you wash it out. It's also ammonia and peroxide free.
