As you all know, I'm slightly obsessed with voluminous hair. The bigger the better, I say! I've used a million and ones products over the past number of years in search of the biggest hair I can get. I've used powder, sprays, and have back-combed my hair a million times. I just love the look of big hair, and I think it suits my style, if that makes sense? Tresemme, and Aussie are the two products I came to know and love, for my big hair. I'm always reluctant to test new products, as I was comfortable in my hair care routine. However when John Frieda "Luxurious Volume" arrived in the post, I was more than happy to give it a whirl. I've used John Freida products before, and had a good experience, so I knew I wouldn't be let down.
A lot of people don't realise (I didn't either until last year!) that I have fine hair. With the mop of hair I do have, I naively assumed that I had thick hair. It was finally good to know, what my hair type is. My stylist told me I had fine hair, just a lot of it. This Shampoo and Conditioner is specifically for fine hair, and after my first wash, I noticed a change immediately. My hair after blow-drying it was HUUUUGE.I felt like Cheryl Cole flicking my hair (I wish!) The second time I tested the products, I used the Blow-drying spray from the same range, which promises to give your hair a further lift. In my last outfit post, you can see the results. It speaks for itself!
The Shampoo* is a thick texture, and forms a nice lather. I hate when I have to use so much product on my hair, and takes ages to wash out, especially if I'm in a rush that morning. I only need to use a tiny amount, as it goes a long way. I usually get around a month out of John Frieda Shampoo and Conditioner's and I don't think this one will be any different, although does anyone else use a lot more conditioner than they do Shampoo? I swear I have it in my head that I need a bucket load of Conditioner to tame my crazy hair.
The conditioner* is a nice consistency. It's not as thick as others I've used, and to be honest I was a bit apprehensive, and didn't expect as good of a result compared to thicker formula's. When I first used it my hair was quite tangled and in dire need of some TLC. I applied a decent amount from my root to tip, as I really wanted to give my hair some pampering. I left it on for 3-4 minutes and then made sure to wash it out thoroughly. When I combed my hair, It was like I had no knots! I was really impressed! Not only was my hair left soft and tangle-free it had a lot more volume in it.
Over all I thought the John Freida Shampoo and Conditioner were fantastic, and really gave me the big hair I crave!
