Last year I came to the realisation that your hair is your best accessory, as it’s one you wear every single day. Since then I’ve been making more of an effort with my hair; getting it cut regularly, styling it properly and using better hair care products.
Today, I’m talking to you about the latter. For the past year I’ve used almost (if not every) single brand of shampoo and conditioner on Asda’s shelves, and the conclusion? Well, they just did nothing for me; they made my hair greasier faster, didn’t combat the fizz and coated by hair in a faux shiny layer that lasted a day.
I’ve found that just like my skincare I need to invest in better hair care products, and one I’ve been trying for over a month now is Lux Volume by SHOW Beauty. SHOW Beauty is an opulent hair care, styling and finishing collection that is indulgent, luxurious and embodies timeless elegance and sophistication.
The LUX Volume range is brand new to the boutique salon in House of Fraser, in Metrocentre, Gateshead, and from the collection I’ve been using the Volumising Shampoo, Volumising Conditioner and Volume Mist.
The shampoo is designed to be lightweight so it lifts hair from the roots, adding supreme bounce and fullness, while the conditioner is set to leave hair glossy and super shiny.
The first thing I noticed before using these products, other than the luxurious packaging (which I love), is the smell. These products boast the most gorgeous scent, which is actually iconic to the brand, and the more lather you create, the greater the smell.
Now, I’ve tried many volumising products and they’ve all failed, so you can imagine my surprise when I dried my hair to find these products actually work. Natural, luscious and effortless, the combination of these products gives my hair weightless body but it doesn’t feel like my hair is filled with product. Everytime I use these, I just want to flip and flick my hair every chance I get.
I usually don’t use conditioner because it always makes my hair feel heavy and it becomes greasier faster. However, I found the Lux Volume Conditioner to leave my hair feeling soft and smooth without weighing it down. I’ve never had that from a conditioner before.
Since my hair is very thick, I try to use styling products where I can, which is why I picked up the Lux Volume Mist. Activated by heat this mist is set to provide hair with instant structure and root volume.
Just like the shampoo and conditioner, the mist has the same beautiful scent. After I’ve towel dried my hair and a couple of spritz later I have voluminous hair that smells absolutely incredible. Unlike the shampoo and conditioner I can feel the mist in my hair once it’s dry, but it’s not annoying or unpleasant, and it brushes straight out once I’ve had my daily use.
I use the mist on damp hair, but you can use it on dry hair too. Since it’s activated using heat, after you’re sprayed in on dry hair simply blast it with the hairdryer and boom. Hair that’s bouncy and glossy.
I’ve really enjoyed using these products and I can totally see a difference in my hair since using better, more luxurious, hair care products. If your hair suffers with flatness, or you find your hair lacks a certain va va voom, then I would completely recommend these products, especially the shampoo and conditioner.
Have you ever used these products before? Or anything else from SHOW Beauty? Do you suffer with flat, lifeless hair?
