John Frieda Luxurious Volume Collection


I have quite thick hair but it lacks volume at the roots. I don't style my hair with heat and have tried plenty of the volumising products on the market, in my search for a quick fix. They've been pretty hit and miss so I was feeling a little jaded when I was sent these products from the John Frieda Luxurious Volume Collection. But I rather like them, as it turns out, and I’d be interested in trying further products from the range.

The thickening shampoo is a good size in a handy-for-the-shower squeezy tube. It’s clear with a nice, light scent and I like the texture and the way it lathers, leaving my hair feeling really clean. As to its volumising properties, the jury’s out but as a shampoo, I give it a thumbs up. I’d like to test it out with the conditioner from the range and I’ll be picking that up the next time I spot it.

I’m also rather fond of the Anytime Refresher spray. It works the same as others I’ve tried but it feels a little lighter in my hair and doesn’t leave as much white residue to be worked in. I like the smell and the smaller size means it’s handy to chuck in my handbag and to refresh throughout the day. All of this means that in my book it’s worth paying the few bob more for this stuff than my regular Batiste. All products in the range are €6.19, with the exception of serums at €6.89.

These are decent products that won’t break the bank and if you have fine hair, they may work even better for you. They’re available from supermarkets and chemists nationwide.

Have you tried these and what did you think? Do you have any recommendations for creating volume at the roots?

I'm never sure about shampoos with volumising properties- they usually don't last past the front door.

I'd recommend Tigi Your Highness and Osis Dust it for volume at the roots. Lots of people are not made about the texture of hair powders, but they are the only way to go for staying power.

Havn't tried these but re-finding John Frieda lately and loving it!

I've yet to try any John Frieda though D'Mammy and my curly haired friends love it. I've been converted to James Brown London PhotoFabulous and it does wonders for volume for me (when I can hide it from the short haired teens that is :P)

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I do have the Osis powder and it's hands down the best powder I've used, but I still have to get used to the texture. CherrySue, I must investigate that James Brown stuff, have never heard of it before. Thanks for the tip xo

I tried that range about two years ago, wasn’t really to impressed have to say... I liked the Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion, but still haven’t used it up completely, it did a decent job giving my hair thicker appearance. I can recommend Aveda’s Volumizing Tonic, is absolutely fabulous for anyone looking for a bit of lift at their roots. xxx

I never rated John Frieda stuff until I tried the couture curls shampoo. Brilliant stuff!I find the charles worthington volume one is really good

I must give the curly range a go too. I have wavy hair so it'd be nice to accentuate that. xo

Will have to check out that spray!

Sounds interesting Emma, my hair could do with a bit more volume!

The Trevor Sorbie dry shampoo is brilliant, really light weight and doesn't make your hair go white (as some "refresher" products do!). Also the scent is much nicer than Batiste.

I have a Charles Worthington volumising mousse which works well on my (thin & fine) roots. It's in black bottle - Front Row Big Hair Volumising Mousse.

I've tried his other products and they were marginal at best but perhaps the products have changed. Good to know!

You must have an amazing stockpile of beauty products, with all of your reviews:) I love a good smelling shampoo that lathers well.

I’m always looking to add more volume and I have got on quite well with John Frieda products in the past, especially the range for blonde hair, so I may give this a look!

Nowadays people have got in to the habit of making post but the most important thing is to make an interesting and informative post. This post is a excellent example of such kind of thread.
