John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Shampoo + Conditioner

(You can purchase from Boots here!)

For a beauty junkie I'm really not that 'into' hair (shocker I know). My hair is long, straight and pretty boring. Usually it gets washed with whatever shampoo and conditioner Mummy has decided to buy that week and left to dry on its own. This lack of attention has however resulted in quite long and rather healthy hair so I cannot complain about that. However recently I've been getting a bit bored with it being so flat and lifeless, off to Boots I trot to see what I could find. I remember reading a blog post somewhere about how good the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo + Conditioner was so I thought I would give it a try. It is a little bit more expensive than my normal shampoo so first off I bought the mini travel size to make sure I liked them. Did I? Here's a hint; the shampoo bottle photographed above is my third bottle! This stuff is fabulous, it gives your hair that little bit of texture it needs to give it some body and volume without leaving it feeling dry and unhealthy. Now I'm not claiming it leaves you with huge bouncy hair, but it definitely does make a difference. I have been trying a few other hair products recently fro Bumble and Bumble so I will let you know what I think of them.

Any other volume/texturising hair products that I need to know about?


  1. Hi! I am a new follower! After reading this post I want to try the shampoo now!


  2. I am exactly the same with my hair. I wish I cared more about it and knew how to make it look thick with lots of volume but Herbal Essences ticks the boxes at the mo with split ends.
    Really keen to give this one ago. How much exactly are they?
    Love how short and sweet this review is too. Perfect! Just my kind of review! :)

  3. I am so the opposite with my hair, I am a sucker for marketing & believe everything hair products say they will do (not with any other products though!) Iv used this tuff before & it is good but if you now have a taste for volume & want to take it to the next level I recomend KMS calafornia thickening spray, you use before blowdrying so it might not suit you but if you can be bothered to blow dry this stuff will seriously change your life (well, ok, your hair!) :)
