If you see from previous reviews I do like a thickening product. I had reviewed the Pantene range for increasing strands of hair (see blog archive bar on the right) and so I had to try this as well.
I normally use John Freida Luxurious Volume shampoo and conditioner and also the root boosting spray and I am very happy with them but I have given this a go as well as you never know....
OK the Shampoo
Now the conditioner or Mask is supposed to be used every time you use the shampoo but the conditioner products should then be alternated with the treatment :-
The products claim to have an ingredient called Filloxane which is supposed to penetrate and expand hair. Well I would say it definitely adds texture and does make the hair feel fuller that I cant deny. It says it will add 80% more body and bounce. Well it add's body but my hair does not feel more bouncy so I am unsure on this one. It then claims to add more each time you wash to have a 'cumulative long lasting effect' I would say the 3rd time using it that yes it feels thicker than the first.
My hair texture is dry, and although I have alot of hair its very low in natural volume. This does volumize for sure but I am not sure I like the texture it leaves my hair in . I must say it is a little drying. Normally in a thickening duo you get a volumizing shampoo and a lightweight conditioner in this case its volumizing and thickening BOTH . So if you hair is very wiry and dry I don't think this will suit also if your hair is like my mothers for example which is baby fine and wispy I think you will end up with a head of straw!.
Shot of my hair after 3rd time using and you can see the texture is a little coarse,
You can see full details on the products here L'Oreal Paris it is available at Boots and Superdrug and I think Boots still have a three for £10.00 on offer at the moment and the bottles are in the large size.
All in all I think the product is OK but I do still prefer my John Freida Luxurios Volume as I feel you get volume but softness rather than a coarse finish to the hair.
Have you tried this? what did you think ? please comment and follow . xx
