At the bottom of this post is a giveaway where you can win some John Frieda Luxurious Volume products, but please do read on to hear a bit more about them first.
Growing up my hair was ridiculously curly and thick. When I was at primary school it was so thick and curly that it was pretty much impossible to comb and when my parents attempted it, the end result was usually me in tears and refusing to talk to them for a while afterwards.
So many adults used to say how much they loved my hair, but I hated it and all I wanted was the straight glossy hair that a lot of my friends had. I wished my hair was much thinner and easier to manage.
They do say ‘be careful what you wish for’ don’t they?! As I got older and straightened my hair a lot more (straighteners have been my friend for a long time) my hair became more manageable, straighter and glossy. Then I had children and it fell out in handfuls and has never quite recovered. I hate how thin it can look at times.
I was so happy to hear from the people at John Frieda recently and to be asked to review their Luxurious Volume range. Volume is exactly what has been lacking from my hair in recent years, so I was willing to try anything.
They sent me the John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume Shampoo, 7 Day Volume Conditioner and the 7 Day Volume In Shower Treatment to see if it would boost my lack lustre hair.
And do you know what? …. they actually work on me. Even once straightened my hair is a lot thicker, but still smooth and shiny. My hair feels thicker even when it’s still wet and it smells wonderful. Very importantly as a busy Mum, they can all be used in the shower as part of my normal routine and don’t take long to use at all.
They do say that hair should stay thicker for up to 7 days, but I think that depends entirely on how often you tend to need to wash your hair. For me it lasted in between washes, but was feeling a bit less full by the time I washed it. I wash my hair around every three to four days, as I know it isn’t good to wash it every day and strip it of natural oils etc.
I sound vaguely like I know what I’m talking about here, but mostly I know what works for me and the John Frieda Luxurious Volume range really does, I’ll be buying it again once the lot that I was sent runs out for definite. Especially the Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In Shower Treatment, as the shampoo and conditioner do help, but I think the In Shower Treatment is the star of the show as far as my hair is concerned.
