The John Frieda Luxurious Volume Core Restore (for fine hair) bottles look absolutely gorgeous! I usually don't care but man did they catch my eye, all green and beckoning.
Shampoo & Conditioner -
I'm clumping both together since I didn't see much difference in them separately. These are specially made to be clear (like water) and feel very light in your hair and hands.
I loved how light and clear it comes out, and noticed the difference between John Frieda Luxurious Volume Core Restore and other shampoo/conditioners right away. When I put it in my hair it didn't feel smothering, it was lighter than putting a oil in my hair.
There wasn't a bunch of suds and buildup leftover in my hair after I rinsed. My hair felt clean, but not squeaky clean or silky, just clean. It said it helps with tangles, I can't comment much on that since I brushed my hair before washing it. But the amount of hair that came out when I brushed it again after using this shampoo and conditioner didn't seem at all normal. For that reason I have not tried the shampoo or conditioner a second time to test it better for volume.

Volume wise, things seemed about the same, but my hair seemed frizzier (volume at play?). When I ran my hand through my hair I could feel the light kind of grease formula coating it (not in a gross way, it's much lighter than coconut oil). But my hair seemed more dry than usual. As the days went on I had my hair in a braid and it was crazy messy. Makes me wonder if I had taken it back out if it would be a beautiful voluminous mess, or regular knotted mess.
- Light, clear formula.
- Easy washout, no buildup.
- Clean, no knotted mess
- Beautiful packaging
- Hair loss
- Frizzy, not much volume
- Broke me out
Advanced Protein Volumizer -
|<-AFTER Volumizer BEFORE Volumizer->|
Instructions say to put in hair after washing hair, and activating the formula with a blow dryer. I must say I was surprised when my hair became a poof like a lion's mane. I didn't like how it was sort of frizzy but I loved how it made the illusion of a thicker hair. I no longer felt like the girl from the ring with flat hair against the side of my head.
- Thicker/fuller looking hair
- Smells nice
- No bad reactions
- Little goes long way
- Makes hair frizzy
Final thoughts -
I recommend the Advanced Protein Volumizer, but not the Shampoo or Conditioner because of my minor hair loss incident.
