If you’ve read any of my previous posts on my hair, you’ll know that it’s thick and curly. Usually volumising and thickening shampoos are something I’d steer clear of. However in the summer months I tend to keep my hair curly more often, which means volumising and thickening shampoos become my best friend!
For the past month I’ve been trying out a number of shampoos that aid in giving your hair that extra ‘oompf’ and added lift. I’ve tried out a selection of brands and will let you know my thoughts.
I’ve heard of Korres before and have been meaning to try it out for a while. This shampoo has a clean scent that isn’t too overpowering and didn’t leave my hair feeling frizzy or weighed down. It helps to rejuvenate scalp cells and give your hair more texture and volume. My hair felt clean, without feeling dry. It also gave me a nice amount of volume, whilst keeping my hair frizz-free! Big thumbs up from me, Korres!
Following closely behind the Korres Shampoo is this one from Giovanni. Am I the only one that loves a shampoo that tingles? This tea tree shampoo is suitable for all hair types and has a lovely cooling feel. It’s got peppermint in which helps to invigorate the scalp and makes me feel awake! Product build-up was easily removed and my hair felt super clean! The tea tree and peppermint helps to invigorate and wake me up when I use this in the morning. Winning!
The thing that stood out the most about this shampoo from Klorane is that it is gentle enough for frequent use! For someone like me, who washes their hair everyday, this is a bonus. I know, I shouldn’t do it, but I can’t stand product build-up. I loved the citrus smell of this shampoo, scent wise it’s probably my favourite. So if you’re looking for an all-around good shampoo, with a pleasant scent, this ones for you.
I wasn’t as impressed with this product as the previous three. It didn’t really do anything special and actually made my hair feel slightly dry. I use heat styling tools on my hair every day, so it’s dry as it is, never mind having a shampoo strip my hair. This one wasn’t for me and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t recommend spending money on it. If you hair was on the oiler side, I’m sure this product would be good!
Out of all these products, Phyto is the brand I’m most familiar with. Up until now, I’d never used it before, but I’m slightly disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, my hair felt thick and conditioned, but I didn’t like the smell at all! It was almost medicinal and reminded me of medicated shampoo. If I was to pair this with a strong scented conditioner, I don’t think I’d have as much of a problem.
There you have it, my thoughts on 5 shampoos! A bit of a different post from me, but I’m happy I got to try them all out! I would definitely recommend Korres to anyone looking at investing in some new shampoo, it’s reasonably priced and you can get it over at Mankind.co.uk!
Thanks to Harley Street Hair Clinic for sending me this lovely haircare hamper to try out, I’ve definitely found some new favourites and hope you’ll explore more too! Check them out on Twitter: @HSHairClinic.
