I received this line of products as a free sample from BzzAgent to try and review. I have been using the Nexxus® Salon Hair Care Hydra-Light system in my hair for a few days now. My first impressions are that it smells great! A nice fresh scent that isn't overly purfumey and gives my hair a pleasant smell all day without being too strong and competing with the other scents I wear. I love a great scent! My next impression is that it doesn't take much product for this stuff to work and that more than makes up for its Salon price tag! I have to use twice as much of a drugstore brand to really clean my hair and then it still isn't as clean as this shampoo makes my hair. I will review the entire line product by product...

Hydra-Light Shampoo - I can use about a quarter size dollop for my hair that is about 4 inches BELOW my shoulder! I have long hair and it impressed me that this small amount easily lathered into a creamy cleansing solution for my entire head of hair! I loved how clean it felt afterwards - not squeaky and stripped, but just soft and clean. Since I wash my hair everyday, it is a must that my hair doesn't get stripped in the cleaning process. I was very happy with the job it did. The only con I could see is that I think it really is meant to be used every day and skipping a day tended to make my hair seem oilier faster.

Hydra-Light Conditioner - this conditioner really does give me body and I really can tell their are minerals in this product - my hair was shiny and healthy but NOT weighed down. It bounced on my shoulders and felt so soft and manageable the entire day. The most wonderful result of using this product is that I felt like I had no fly-aways the entire day! Guaranteed, they were back by the next day before I used the product again, but for an entire 12 hours, my hair was shiny and smooth. I really appreciate that effect since fly-aways are something I deal with on a consistent basis and no hair spray in the world can keep them down! Again, the scent is pleasant and not over powering.

Hydra-Light Leave in Conditioning Foam - I have mixed feelings about this product and I think it may be a matter of application to make this product work well - I found that applying it all over tended to contribute to almost a weighed down look, especially near my scalp. So I tried applying it just from the roots to up half of my hair length and it was amazing! That was the way to use it - my hair was shiny and still had that bounce that I love. I also felt like my ends looked healthier and not as dried out. There is hardly any scent to this product which is nice since the shampoo and conditioner already are scented and leave a subtle hint to my hair that is pleasant. Any more scent would most likely be over powering. I also liked that this product was easy to manipulate thru my hair ends and didn't clump in one spot like some foams tend to do - maybe that is because it is less of a mouse and more of a foam.

Hydra-Light Root Lift Spray - this is by far my favorite product - I have really thick hair, so I was worried about a product that promises even thicker hair - I was really interested in my roots being lifted more than anything and this product delivered! I really focused the product more on my roots than on my ends and I was pleased that after drying, my hair had a lovely all over volume. I also was happy that again the fragrance was extremely subtle.

The thing I noticed most after using these products in conjunction with each other was that my hair had a wonderful "swing" to it. It felt thick and luxiourous but not weighted down and it really was as if each strand had been separated and hydrated. My hair moved fluidly and felt great. My husband also said that he enjoyed the smell very much. Overall, I would definitely continue using these products - I think there are some things that have to be taken into consideration - it really does need to be used everyday, and the products need to be used as a set and not picking out one to use here and there. I am over all very happy with my shiny, healthy and vibrant hair.

I was so excited to test the new line of Nexxus® Salon Hair Care Hydra-Light products through Bzz Agent. The idea of super hydrated hair that was not weighed down by the products was really appealing to me and I went in with high hopes wanting to love everything about it. The result hit both ends of the spectrum and left me with the conclusion that this line works better for some hair types than others.

The Down Side: I used the Shampoo, Conditioner, Leave in Conditioning Foam and Root Lift Spray over the course of a week and unfortunately found myself struggling to keep with it even that long but wanted to give the products a fair chance. I have long (mid back length) thick naturally wavy/curly hair that tends to be on the drier side and is susceptible to frizz especially living in Florida. I found that while the shampoo lathered nice and had a light sweet scent when I rinsed it out my hair felt dry and tangled. I hoped that the conditioner would counteract this feeling but found myself having to use a ton of it just to get a comb through it. After rinsing the conditioner out I found myself with a mess of dry stringy hair that I could barely get my fingers through. I used the leave in conditioner foam once again hoping for some help but found it just added a slimy sort of feel on top of the stringiness. The root booster worked OK for lift as long as you blow dried your roots enough.
SOOO... I know that all sounded bad, and for me it really was not a good match, but there is a silver lining coming! In my case I think that the silicone free formula (which I was excited about) does not agree with my hair. I had ran into this with another brand and I believe this now settles that so IF you have a similar hair type to mine please know you may not like the results from this line.

NOW on to the Positive! After not loving these new Hydra-light products for myself I suggested to my husband that he should try them. He has a typical guys length hair cut and his hair is pretty fine with a slight wave when it gets long and on the oily side with a tendency to fall flat. For him all of the things that I disliked worked in his favor leaving his hair soft and full of body and not feeling greasy at the end of the day. The scent is a little more flowery than his usual hair care products but as the scent is not overly strong once rinsed out he does not mind it.

Bottom Line- this is a great set of products for some hair types and worth giving a shot. The packaging, fragrance and feel are all very luxurious and are a great value for the price. I will continue to purchase this for my husband (who has since received many compliments on how his hair is looking) and in the meantime will check out some other Nexxus varieties to find one that works better for my particular head of hair.

    Comments about Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo, 13.5 fl oz:

    Tired of paying too much for salon shampoo, I decided to try this on a whim. I love it! My hair is fine in texture but thick and tends to get greasy by the end of the day. This shampoo lathers really well, you only need a small amount. I could tell the first time that it was soft but not weighed down. A little pricey compared to other store brands but because you only use a quarter sized amount it should last awhile.

    The best things about this shampoo is that they smell great, I think it's my favorite thing, it's light weight, it doesn't make your hair feel like it's got a lot of product in it, and it's not overly "soapy" meanign not a lot of lather. There really wasnt anything I didnt like about the shampoo but the lack of lather!

      Comments about Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo, 13.5 fl oz:

      I must say that I absolutely LOVE this product. I have naturally curly hair and normally I either have very frizzy hair or I have hair that is so weighted down that it looks a bit oily.
      This product is amazing! I love the scent, very light almost a soft perfume with a citrus smell. In addition to a great smell, a little goes a long way. The shampoo lathers well and the conditioner and styling products go a long way with just a little use. I was skeptical when I first tried this Nexxus product because I often just condition my hair because shampoo usually takes too many oils out of my hair which makes it frizzy; so I often just use shampoo a couple times a week and then just condition it on the other days.
      This Nexxus product cleaned my hair, did not make it frizzy, nor did it make it feel weighted down. My hair was soft, smooth, light feeling and smelled good too. You would have to be crazy not to try this product. Thank you for another great product by Nexxus!

        Comments about Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo, 13.5 fl oz:

        I really enjoyed using these products! My hair's normal texture is coarse and thick. It's never been soft or smooth or terribly manageable. And I certainly don't need more body or volume. Right away, when lathering with the shampoo, I could feel soft hair! Also, I didn't need to use a lot of product to cover my hair; it covered without having to glop it on and it rinsed out easily and completely. I tried all four products together, which I normally never use more than shampoo/conditioner, and found each product an additional help. The body lift mist is a bit sticky like hairspray but it worked well when I was straightening my hair and needed a lift at the roots. The leave-in conditioner was light like it boasts and kept my hair hydrated. The results have been more than I expected. Soft hair that feels light to the touch! Plus it kept my hair looking less oily and need of another wash the next day. Nexxus worked very well for hair like mine!

        I tried the new line of Nexxus Salon Hair Care Hydra-Light from Bzz Agnet. I must say it works really well. My hair is very fine and I need to wash my hair daily in order to avoid the oily look. I've been using this shampoo for several weeks and have noticed that my hair has more volume and the product doesnt weigh my hair down. Also my hair appears to be much shiner then before I started using the product. The only thing that would have made this product better is if the smell were stronger. Besides that this product is A+++

            I received my Nexxus Hydra-Light shampoo, conditioner, root lift mist and leave in conditioner from BzzAgent to use for free in exchange for my honest opinion. I absolutely love all four products. The shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel very healthy and hydrated, plus the fresh scent stayed with my hair all day. That is unheard of for me. I have very thick, course hair and usually by the end of the day, there is nothing fresh about how it smells. I was very skeptical about a foam leave in conditioner, I've always used the expensive salon pump spray ___ & Sexy leave in conditioner. I was pleasantly surprised. I've also always used that "other" brand of root lift as well, with less than amazing results. I couldn't believe that the Nexxus Root Lift Mist gave my heavy hair more all day volume than I've ever had. I'm thrilled to be a part of this campaign. I hope that Nexxus will next turn out a line of products just like these for color treated hair!!!

                  I used the Hydra-Light line for about a week, and noticed a difference right away. The shampoo lathers like crazy, smells great, and gets my hair really clean. It doesn't feel harsh at all. The conditioner does a great job of calming the static (which makes me crazy in the winter), smoothing the frizzy ends, and still giving my hair body. My hair feels smooth and clean - not weighed down at all. The root lift mist gives my hair just enough "oomph" to make it look fresh (even if I don't wash it every day). I don't love the leave-in conditioner as much. It doesn't feel moisturizing, but it works nice as a styling product - it gives my hair more texture, but just doesn't seems as conditioning as I would expect.
                  I really love the rest of the line, and am happy to recommend it!
