Ok, I haven't even done my introduction yet, but I can't resist. I've had this debate twice already!!
The first time was here:http://www.veganporn.com/vote.pl?pollid=54

I'm not sure why, but back then I actually cared what people thought. If any of it sounds sensitive or wussy, it's probably because it is sensitive or wussy!
I stopped using Herbal Essences since those debates. I'm happy that I did. Whether the product itself is good or not, I know Clairol is a sketchy company and being under P&G makes it that much worse! If you want to have alternative-to-mainstream products, you need to support them.
FYI: The *new* Herbal Essences, called "Fruit Fusions", is missing
3 key things that the original product has:
- The "+99% plant derived" flag
- The ingredients list
- And the "Product not tested on animals" comment
So you see, they've pretty much stopped using the standards that attracted you to the product in the first place! Doesn't sound like a winner to me!
