Review: I have extremely fine, baby hair, and my hair tends to look flat and lifeless. Aside from having my hair cut short to give it an illusion of more volume, I also use volumnising hair care products.

I wasn’t entirely sure about this product at first, as I’ve been let down by many other brands who claim to be able to thicken hair. I also wasn’t impressed with the smell, as it gave off a vaguely herbal scent.

At first, I didn’t see much of a difference, but later on I realised that it was because I used it with the conditioner. When I used the shampoo on its own however, my hair looked bouncier, more voluminous and less stick-to-my-scalp flat, which is what I have been looking for.

Not everyone can do away with the conditioner and I suspect longer-haired girls will still require the conditioner but I found that on days when my hair gets extra dry and tangled, a tiny bit of the conditioner on the very ends of my hair worked. It still left my hair looking thick and lush, without being weighed down by the conditioner.

I would reuse this product, but only purchase the shampoo
