As someone who has always had naturally straight and fine hair, I have bought lots of volumizing products over the years and if there is one thing I have learned it’s that a shampoo won’t give me big hair. Big hair requires serious styling products combined with specialist styling technique that requires a good stylist. However, being the sucker that I am I bought the Aussie Aussome Volume shampoo and conditioner a few weeks ago in Tesco as part of a two for something deal (sorry I don’t remember the actual price. Tesco, being the evil geniuses that they are, stick yellow deal stickers everywhere and some of us just buy things we don’t need without really considering if it even is that good of an offer at all). Back to the shampoo and conditioner, the promise is that the “Australian hops extract” and “unique formula, with extract of Australian hops, leaves you hair with body and fullness from root to tip. Bring on the Big Hair” yea bring it on because I’m still waiting.
Ok so I’m not left with a massive bouffant but it’s not all bad news. The shampoo does leave your hair squeaky clean, literally my hair squeaks while I’m rinsing the shampoo out. Luckily the conditioner adds back the moisture and leaves my hair soft and easy to comb through. I wouldn’t like to use the shampoo alone, there would be no way in hell I would be able to comb my hair after just using the shampoo. The conditioner doesn’t leave hair weighed down in fact even though there isn’t any noticeable volume as such; my hair is left lightweight and actually bouncy and swishy. In the photo below you can see the definition in the layers of my hair which shows how light weight the layers are left.
If I am honest, I would buy these two for the scent alone. It is quite a sweet smell that some of you will hate but I like it. I love that I can still smell it in my hair for ages after. Have you tried these? Are there any volumizing products that have worked for you?
