"Bleach it," I always tell the hairstylist. "But that will make your hair so coarse!" she always replies. "You call it coarse, I call it thick!" I always insist, with a professional smile, followed by a that's what she said.
Since the beginning of time, my hair
has been thin, but luckily, I have lots of it. I don't like to overload
it with too many hair products, and prefer to keep my regime simple:
shampoo, conditioner, de-tangler. Recently, however, I was lucky enough
to receive a l'Oréal Paris Fibralogy Vox Box to test this new product
that promises to make your hair thick. What's different about it is
that in-between the shampooing and conditioning, you put a serum in your
hair that really seals the thickness deal. To be honest, I was a bit
skeptical because I've tried a lot of products before, and I would hate
to write an entire review about how much a product sucks, but I would
also never lie. However, I'm excited to report I was not disappointed!
Here's how the line looks... in the Vox Box....(what a fun surprise to receive! the postman was surely jealous...)
Step 1 is the shampoo part...pretty standard. You just lather and rinse as per usual...
Step 2 is to apply a dime sized amount of the thickening booster. This is really the activating agent. Leave it in (do not rinse out!) and then you're ready for Step 3...
And Step 3 is business as usual: a nice dollop of conditioner. Lather, give it a few minutes to do its thang, and rinse!
I haven't used an 'adult' hair line in a long time. Most of my stuff, as you probably noticed in previous blogs, is fruit scented or is tear-free for babies. The Fibralogy line smells like something a woman in her late twenties should use- grown-up and elegantly fragranced.
It was a sad day before I received my Vox Box. It was a sad day because my hair was flat and thin, like this:
After washing my hair with the shampoo, and treating it with the booster and conditioner, I blow dryed it quickly and...holy moly:
I was really impressed by how sleek my hair felt, without any other product in it, and without needing to even be straightened after. It just sort of perfectly fell into place. It certainly felt thicker, and so, so, so voluminous that I didn't know what to do with it. I absolutely loved it, and loved that I didn't need to do anything else to amp it up afterwards...
For a lower cost product, you really can't beat this one: it really does what it claims to do, and with only one extra step in your simple hair care routine. Thanks to Fibralogy, here's what I do now, all day, every day:
While I received this product complimentary to review, all views expressed are my own - why wouldn't they be ? :)
