Limp, fine hair? Got to thank genetics for this trait. Volume and thick hair is all I ask for and hair extensions aren’t my thing, so I have to fake it some other way. I’ve used so many volumising hair products in my life so I know what’s good and what isn’t. No pressure. If you’ve got the above two traits and yearn for volume, then this John Frieda Luxurious Volume* range will be the one to look at.
Trying the products together, the highlight for me has got to be the conditioner. It’s got to be the first conditioner I’ve genuinely liked and am not afraid to use. Many out there weighed my hair down so much that it had put me off using any for over 10 years. Flat, still thin and greasy within half a day wasn’t the ideal look, but this was a game changer for me. Hair felt fuller, not heavy and soft. The shampoo and conditioner are a great duo and I could just leave it at that.
With the leave in treatment, it’s my go to for when I have a night out and can spend that extra 5 minutes waiting for this to do its job. It’s best using a wide tooth comb to get this on evenly and on the under sections. Once blow-dried, you can see and feel a difference in volume and body. I had found it always looks better the next day though. It states, “lasts through multiple washes’, about that… it is hard to actually tell whether it does last due to washing my hair every other day and incorporating dry shampoo in-between washes.
With the combination of the three products above, the best feeling is when you’ve washed it all out; you can feel a difference in thickness straight away. I know I’ll have a better poof when I cut my hair to medium length. Hashtag, long hair problems.
Lastly is the hair mousse. It didn’t leave any sticky residue or that stiff and crispy feel once blow-dried. Lightweight? Yes, but I didn’t see any added volume. It felt like it had undone the work of the other three products which is unfortunate. Due to the natural finish, I had found there not being any hold which is something I look for in a mousse.
Overall, I’m quite surprised with this range despite the mousse. Not sure about the 7 days but it’s still good enough to use!
Have you tried this range?
