Hello! After trying the new Pro V in-shower hair volumizing mousse, I became curious about other similar products from the drugstore. Recently, walking through my local drugstore, in the sale corner I saw a new hair product to me, from a brand I used to like in the past – John Frieda. The name of the product “Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment“ made me even more curious, may be because of the “seven days volume” promise. The fact that this treatment was form EUR 10.00 reduced to EUR 4.00 made my purchase decision pretty easy.
What the treatment claims to be – a semi-permanent product with lightweight, volume stimulating polymers, which is supposed to thicken the hair structure, to bring a texture and fullness and every one of those benefits is supposed to be wash-resistant and noticeable up to 7 days.
The texture – to me, the texture feels and looks like strange. It is more of gel based product that has blue colour, and in combination with water it feels somehow like cement. Why is it different that other volumizing in shower products? Looking in the ingredients list there is only one ingredient that seems to be different – Polyimide-1 … But seriously, I’m any expert in chemistry, so I googled it. The Polyimide-1 seems to be more soap/shampoo resistant , therefore the promise of 7 days hair volume.
How to use it – after washing your hair as usual, as the last step of your hair shower routine, is to be applied from the roots to your hair tips. Leave the texture for ca 10 minutes and then wash it generously with water, blow dry and style as you always do!
Impressed or depressed?
The first time when I use it, I put too much product to my hair and this product is really hard to spread among my hair and even harder to wash it away. The result after this first washing was the opposite of having volumized hair. My hair was sticky, flat and hard to style and comb. On the second day I was supposed to wash my hair as it looked like it hasn’t been washed for a week or so. After the second wash, my hair felt clean, soft and volumized.
After a week, I used it again – this time a applied less product to my hair but the result was similar to the first time till washing my hair again…
Just my thoughts – this hair treatment changes somehow the texture of my hair, it is definitely more texturized than, but it adds some portion of stickiness and I don’t tend to like this. I could say, I only like my hair after the second wash … but I don’t think I’ll continue with using this, as I really hate the feeling of my hair right after applying it. The formula is definitely NOT a lightweight one as John Frieda claims to be. And the volume – well, there is any after the first wash! After the second hair wash, I could barely recognize something like a volume, but it is absolutely not enough in order to use it and buy it again, or recommend it to you.
If you want to try it – do it! I think this could be one of these love it or leave it hair products. May be if you have another hair structure, this could work for you better.
Enjoy the day!
