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.

I was able to try Nexxus Salon Hair Care Hydra-Light Weightless Shampoo for free, and I loved it! I was so impressed with the salon quality at an affordable price. I also loved the look, feel, and scent of the Shampoo. I loved how well it worked and how great my hair looked. My hair looked clean and moisturized and not dry, without feeling or looking greasy. It also brought out the natural volume and life in my hair, and it made for many great hair days!

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

When I first used this shampoo, I was a little turned off by the inital smell, but it does fade quite a bit when you rinse it and throught the day. It's not an overpowering scent all day long. I was impressed with the lather and after using the rest of the system and blowdrying, the lightness my hair had. I have used Nexxus before and was not impressed, but this was fantastic!

    Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo
    I am always looking for a great line of products to help keep my hair looking good. I have a sensitive skin and so it's not always easy to find something that works well but doesn't irritate my scalp and face. I have very thick and long hair, that is color treated, and heat styled everyday so I need to keep it as healthy as I can to look my best. I am a BzzAgent so I was lucky enough to get to try the Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture line for free by just giving my honest opinion.
    When the box came from BzzAgent, I was excited to get to try the Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture shampoo and conditioner. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I received the whole line of products, including the shampoo, conditioner, weightless moisture conditioning foam, and weightless moisture root lifting mist.
    I found it just takes a small amount of the shampoo to get a nice rich lather in my thick, long hair. I was skeptical at first since most moisture shampoos are creamy looking and this shampoo is clear. It has a soft, light scent, and rinsed away clean. I followed with the conditioner, applying a quarter size dollop throughout my hair, making sure to get the ends, and leaving on for at least a minute. The conditioner also rinsed away cleanly and my hair felt soft and smooth. It combed out easily with my wide tooth comb. I then used two pumps of the weightless moisture conditioning foam. I was impressed that the product did not make my hair feel heavy or sticky. I followed with a few pumps of the weightless moisture root lifting mist at the roots of my hair. I was very pleased with the way my hair felt with the whole product line. I have very heavy hair and I did see an improvement in volume at the roots. My hair looked smooth and had a nice shine. It kept the fly-aways away! In the past I have found that it's best if I only wash and condition my hair every other day. So on the non-wash days I reapplied the conditioning foam and root lifting mist with great results.

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

      I received the Nexxus Hydra-Light product line from BzzAgent and have had a wonderful experience testing out this great product line.

      The Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner work together flawlessly. After using them in combination with each other for a solid week, I have found my hair to be soft, static free, and full of volume. My hair is both fine and thin and unlike other reviewers, I have not had any problems or concerns about my hair losing volume or feeling weighed down.

      In conjunction with the Hydra-Light Weightless Shampoo and Conditioner, I also used the Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Leave-In Conditioning Foam. This type of product is new to me, as I often don't use leave-in conditioning products. The first few days of using the product, I initially felt that it was too thick and unnecessary. I ultimately went down to only using one pump of the product and found that it worked much nicer for my thin, fine and short hair. After finding the right amount of product to use, I now feel that it helps to keep my hair static free throughout the day without weighing my hair down.

      Lastly, I used the Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Root Lift Mist as the last step before drying my hair. At this point, I definitely felt like I was using too much product in my hair and feared a horrible greasy bad hair day mess! Boy, was I wrong! After drying my hair, I can't tell that I used a complete product line at once. Being that I do have fine, thin hair its rare that I can use so many products without my hair being a complete greasy and volume-less mess! The complete Nexxus Hydra-Light line has allowed me to use all products and still have super moisturized hair with loads of volume!

      I'd say I'm surprised to say that Nexxus has come out with another fabulous product, but I'm really not! Nexxus is a top quality brand that has always produced products that work great with my hair type!

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

        I was just debating whether to chop my hair off and cut it short because my hair is getting thinner and looks limp and flat. After trying this Nexxus Hydra Light/Weightless Moisture line I think I'll keep in long. It made my hair full and fluffy. The shampoo and conditioner was very moisturizing and rich. A little shampoo goes a long way. The lather was very nice, even luxurious. The scent was pleasant, not cheap smelling like a lot of other shampoos. My hair is color treated and dry at the ends so I don't do cheap shampoos anymore.

        The Root Lift Mist gave my crown a nice fluffy lift. It wasn't sticky or stinky at all. The scent was pleasant and light. Left my hair looking natural, clean and soft, not molded or stringy looking. The Leave-In-Conditioner Foam gave my hair additional fullness and body. It wasn't sticky either.

        Actually when I used this the first time I lucked out because I was on my way to a dinner party and was disappointed because earlier I couldn't get an appointment with my hairdresser because he was on vacation. This Nexxus line gave my hair that fresh new haircut salon feel without the haircut. It looked shiny, refreshed and full of body.

            The entire line of Hydra Light products smells fantastic, the shampoo lathers luxuriously, just like at the salon. The shampoo and conditioner do what they say as far as adding volume and shine. The root lifter does add volume and shine as well, however has no staying power on my fine curly/wavy hair. The leave in conditioning foam made my hair feel somewhat stiff and straightened my curls (not what I wanted) These products would likely work well if you prefer a sleek straight style, which is the effect they had on my hair. I would recommend to a friend with straight hair, but not someone who is trying to enhance their curls and keep body and bounce all day long.

            I was so excited to try Nexxus® Hydra-Light because I have somewhat thin hair and have been looking for something that would give me some ooomph! without weighing my hair down like most of the other products that I have tried. I was pleasantly surprised that conditioner was not greasy or too filmy and the shampoo was able to lather up nicely without using a ton of it. The leave in foam conditioner was a little sticky and my hair was not left soft and silky, but maybe that is the trade off for fuller hair. The Moisture Root Lift Mist was very effective and overall I was able to gain a lot of fullness and achieve a nice style that lasted throughout the day, which my previous brand did not do. One thing I was disappointed in though was the scent. Nexxus® Hydra-Light products did not leave my hair smelling nice and fresh with any of the products in the line and that is definitely one thing that would prevent me from purchasing this product.

              I received this product from bzzagent.com to test and review.....First of all I didn't mind the smell, I have to have shampoo and conditioner that smells nice. It was just OK, nothing I would tell people smelled fantastic, but it was nice.

              The shampoo and conditioner had a nice texture, but not as creamy as I would normally like. I love my hair to be soft soft and bouncy but this seemed a bit more coarse when it was washed out.

              The "light" as suggested in the product, I didn't find at all. I felt like my hair was a bit greasier or heavier feeling when I used this product unfortunately. My hair is soft, but not bouncy and super soft like other products I have tried and use unfortunately. I was definitely not believing the "hydra-light" portion of the product after trying it out either. Just seemed my hair was a bit weighted down, so quite the opposite as it advertises to do. Not a bad product, just doesn't ring true to what it is supposed to be for.
