Hairstory Reviewed: Why You’ll Never Buy Garnier or Herbal Essences Ever Again

Have you realized you haven't been giving your locks the love they deserve? Don't worry, you aren't alone. With all the work-from-home days, most of our editors have realized how bad (or nonexistent) our hair routines had gotten.

Some of us were over-washing, others weren't conditioning enough...And to be honest, we weren't using the best shampoos to start.

We all have our go-to drugstore shampoo and conditioner (we know we can’t be the only ones who have had a rocky love story with Herbal Essences or Garnier). Usually, we go for whatever has the best smell or makes our hair look vibrant for a day or two after washing.

On a search for premium hair wellness help, a few editors came across Hairstory's New Wash - a detergent-free alternative to shampoo that still conditions and cleans without harmful ingredients. Hairstory's New Wash will never strip away your hair's protective barrier or natural oils.

With Hairstory gaining popularity among so many looking to throw away their drug-store favorites we decided to compare it to our go-to shampoos to see if we could give it our stamp of approval.

Here's everything we uncovered:

Key Similarities:

  • All serve the purpose of washing your hair
  • All are affordable options

Key Differences:

  • Hairstory is free from detergents, sulfates, parabens, silicones, and other harmful ingredients. Most drugstore brands are not
  • Hairstory delivers to your doorstep, some drug stores don't deliver
  • Hairstory has a sustainable subscription option called their "Refill Club." Most drugstores don't have subscriptions
  • Hairstory's New Wash comes in 3 types: Original, Rich, and Deep. There are so many drugstore brands, the options can be overwhelming
  • Hairstory has a money-back guarantee.

Hairstory Overview:

Hairstory's New Wash is a safe and effective substitute for shampoo and conditioner. It cleans your hair and scalp without stripping away your natural oils or damaging your microbiome. When comparing the ingredients found in Hairstory to those in drugstore brands like Herbal Essences or Garnier, the difference is unmistakable. We can’t believe we hadn’t checked out the ingredient list of some of our favorites until we checked Hairstory, and wow, we’re glad we did.

Hairstory contains 0 harsh chemicals, which is one of the things our editors loved the most about this company. Finally, a product that's good for our hair and scalp! Almost everything included in Hairstory's New Wash has a benefit, with ingredients like Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Jojoba seed oil, Evening Primrose oil, Sunflower seed oil, Peppermint oil, Rose oil, and keratin.

Our editors couldn't wait to try out New Wash. It takes a little while for your hair to get used to the switch depending on hair type. Some people have no transition issues, but on average it can take 2-4 weeks of using New Wash 'til the results fully set in. Most of us saw results around the 1 week to 2-week mark.

Because New Wash eliminates the need for conditioner along with other hydrating products like hair masks, the price for its utility is a bargain! New Wash allows you to downsize your hair care collection and declutter your shower shelf.

Drugstore Brand Overview:

Most shampoo and conditioner brands that you can buy in your local drugstore contain harsh ingredients like sulfates and other detergents that over-clean your hair - the same detergents found in cleaning products! We were thrown back a bit when we picked up a bottle of Garnier and read the ingredient list.

We also found out, foam isn't good for your hair, at all and through the lather, drugstore shampoos like Herbal Essences and Garnier Fructis, strip away the scalp's natural protective oils, which results in the overproduction of oils, and no one wants oily hair. Since the shampoo has stripped your hair, you try to add moisture again by using conditioner and get greasy, stringy hair. It's the vicious wash, grease, repeat cycle.

Final Thoughts:

After trying Hairstory's New Wash, our editors can confirm it's no myth. Healthy, clean hair is possible, and you don't have to worry about what harmful ingredients you're putting on your scalp and hair.

We all, hands-down recommend this for anyone who has been struggling to find the right shampoo or conditioner. We've all made the switch from our drugstore brands to New Wash, and have noticed a huge difference in our hair, and never want to look back.

If you'd like to love your luscious locks again, reduce the number of harmful products you use, and have the healthiest hair of your life, Hairstory's New Wash is the solution you've been searching for.
