In case you haven’t noticed, I have very straight and fine hair. Over the years I have tried loads of volumising products. Generally one of three thing happen: 1) nothing at all, 2) my hair ends up sticky and gross, or the best case scenario is 3) my hair is left a bit more lightweight and bouncy appearing slightly more voluminous but it’s not really. Now I am not looking for 80s power shoulder big hair. Apparently everyone and their mother still wants the soft and voluminous Kate and Pippa style blow-dry. I’m saying nothing and I’m definitely not admitting to anything. I just want my hair to look a bit healthier and fuller and most importantly, swishy.
Recently I was sent a few products from the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Range to try. With the warm weather of late I’ve just been putting my hair in a pony-tail every day so I couldn’t wait to actually style my hair. I hate when I get stuck in a bit of a rut but there is nothing like a new product to give you a bit of a lift. There are six products in the range: Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and Conditioner, Volume Building Mousse, Blow Dry Lotion Root Booster, Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo, and Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray, all of which retail at €6.31 each. I was given sample sizes of the Shampoo, Conditioner and the Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray to play with.
The promise from the Luxurious Volume collection is “full-bodied, salon-quality style even on fine, flat hair, whilst leaving it feeling natural and supple”. First off, I really like the scent of these: it’s clean and fresh but don’t worry the scent is soft so no need to have the asthma inhaler close to hand. You may have noticed that I am a sucker for nicely scented products. My hair definitely was left feeling “natural and supple”: absolutely no hint of stickiness. In my opinion, the products I have do live up to the promise.
The Shampoo and Conditioner did a great job of cleansing and moisturizing my hair. They are lovely to use even without any of the after styling products and left my hair lightweight, bouncy and swishy. I have to say that I really liked the Fine to Full Blow-Out spray. You spray it all over wet hair. As a fine headed lady I always blow dry my hair upside down (it’s a rule), usually with little effect but with the spray, my hair is left with more volume.
When I use all three products my hair has noticeably more body and bounce and it is nice and swishy. My hair looks healthy and fuller, result!
I am interested in trying more products in the range, I think I will pick up the Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo and I will definitely purchase the full sizes of the Shampoo, Conditioner and Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray. I really do like them that much. Will you be trying anything in the range?
