If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been obsessing over shampoos lately. By looking at this bunch that I’m about to review, you will notice that these shampoos have one thing in common – they promise volume. My roots tend to get oily and flat, so for me, volumizing shampoo is a critical way to keep my hair clean and beautiful for longer than one day.
Acure Pure Mint + Echinacea Stem Cell Volumizing Shampoo (235 ml)
I bought this shampoo online on sale and, to be honest, I am happy that I didn’t pay full price for it. I’ve heard good reviews about it and really wanted to like it, but it seems it’s just not suitable for my hair. The shampoo has a nice consistency, strong herbal (peppermint mixed with rosemary, I believe) scent, and an attractive packaging. Even though it made my hair clean and soft, it also left it completely flat. I like to blow-dry my hair for extra volume, but even this trick didn’t help. I would recommend it to someone with normal hair type who needs a gentle everyday shampoo. I think I’ll try Acure Lemongrass and Argan Shampoo next to see if it will be a better match.
Lavera Organic Orange Volume Shampoo (200 ml)
Formulated for fine hair, therefore if you are looking for an affordable, organic, and vegan volume shampoo, this is a great choice. The shampoo makes the hair shiny, soft, and really voluminous. Made with plant proteins, it improves hair elasticity and protects hair ends from splitting. A conditioner is a must after using this shampoo.
So’Bio Clarifying Shampoo with Lemon and Green Clay (250 ml)
One of my favorite shampoos from this bunch. I can absolutely see a noticeable difference regarding volume. Besides, I like how clean the hair feels after using this organic shampoo. It promises to strengthen the hair roots, absorb excess sebum and prevent fast greasing. Well, in my experience, it gives plenty of volume, and I don’t need to wash my hair for three days straight! The hair is soft, manageable, and quite smooth. I was a bit concerned that it contains Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, but neither the GoodGuide nor SkinDeep has any warnings.
Farfalla Shine & Volume Frangipani Silk Shampoo (50 ml)
A travel-size volume shampoo for all hair types with a delicate scent of Frangipani blossoms. It gives a bit of boost, bounce, and shine to the hair. Not too much, but enough to feel clean and full. In its short ingredient list, you’ll find goodies like silk and wheat protein, which are helpful for maintaining overall health and elasticity of hair. I also recommend using a conditioner after this shampoo, because the hair ends might feel knotty without additional hydration. Overall, it’s nice, but not too special.
