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?
