I’ve been a long time user of OGX products now and used to swear by their Sea Mineral Moisture collection, but eventually moved on to other products as my hair grew too accustomed to the shampoo and conditioner I was using. So I was excited to see they came out with all new products designed to deliver serious volume with the OGX Bamboo Fiber-Full collection.
And while I don’t need volume in my hair (this mop of mine is already pretty bouncy as it is) I love the fact that the shampoo and conditioner is sulfate free. The benefits? It won’t lead to weak/damaged hair and actually helps retain moisture, leaving hair healthy and even more clean.
Fun fact: Studies have shown that sulfate can eventually be absorbed by the liver. Scary right?
The scent of this collection isn’t overpowering like some shampoos and conditioners can be. It leaves a light, relaxing scent on my hair that surprisingly lasted through most of the day. Even Steven commented on the smell with a “Ooh, your hair smells nice.” #win
Because the shampoo is sulfate free, it gently cleanses your hair. It doesn’t strip away it’s natural oils allowing the hair to retain moisture and prevent an excessively dry or itchy scalp. By retaining the hair’s natural oils, the hair is stronger and just overall looks healthier.
The Bamboo Fiber-Full Thickening Cream and Thickening Root Booster are my favorite products from the collection. I apply the Thickening Cream after towel drying my hair by rubbing a small dime-sized amount in the palms of my hands and combing through the hair. I then spray the Thickening Root Booster to my roots by lifting my hair in sections and spraying close to the scalp. Once I’ve finished spraying, I massage the scalp to really work the product in (similar to how you would rub in dry shampoo). I then blow dry my hair with my favorite brush for extra volume and softness.
Without these two products, most of the volume in my hair is towards the bottom, leaving my roots flat. But I’ve found by adding the thickening cream and root booster, my hair finally has some lift. My hair even holds volume in day 2!
So if you’re looking to add some volume to your hair or just need a sulfate-free shampoo option, I would highly recommend trying out the OGX Bamboo Fiber-full collection.
