Ogx Thick & Full + Biotin & Collagen Shampoo
Professional salon shampoos are always nice but how can we match that kind of quality on a high street budget? Ogx is a brand known for its salon inspired formulas and a lot of my most trusted and favorite haircare products have been from them recently.
I didn’t expect this Ogx Thick & Full + Biotin & Collagen Shampoo to have much of a volumising effect on my hair. Firstly, to get the full effects, you would need to use the full product range and I only have the shampoo. Secondly, I’ve literally shed copious amounts of hair straight from my roots for the last couple of years.
This has left me with less than half the amount of hair that I used to have. Hairdressers used to comment on how thick it was and now they comment on how thin it is! So, my hair is a challenge for any volumising product as ‘thick’ and ‘full’ are not two words you would associate with my current hair situation! Bearing all of this in mind, I’m pleasantly surprised to see that it does create a noticeable increase in volume, particularly at the roots.
Volumising products can be hard on hair as they tend to rough it up and dry it out to create the desired (illusion) of fullness. This leaves my hair smooth with just a slight unruly coarseness towards the ends. I think it could be a little drying when used daily but if like me, you only wash your hair a few times a week, it shouldn’t be a problem. Otherwise, I’d recommend alternating this with a conditioning shampoo.
One of the best things about the Ogx Thick & Full + Biotin & Collagen Shampoo is that it has a thick consistency and works up a satisfying lather. That’s all the more impressive considering it doesn’t contain any sulfates.
I find sulfate free shampoos are generally gentler and less drying, making them a good choice for coloured hair as they tend to strip away less of the dye. Sulfate free shampoos are also a good choice if you suffer from any scalp issues to as they will likely cause less irritation. This is also paraben free which is great news for people who try to avoid chemical preservatives.
Another thing I like about this shampoo is it has a lovely, delicate fragrance that I would describe as a mix of vanilla, lavender and musk. I’ve actually noticed that everything I’ve tried from Ogx so far smells great and I do really enjoy using great smelling haircare products!
The key ingredients are biotin and collagen: Biotin (or vitamin B7) is an essential vitamin needed to metabolize macro nutrients and collagen is a structural protein that’s well-known for plumping things up! Perhaps these are a winning haircare combination?
I bought this mini Ogx Thick & Full + Biotin & Collagen Shampoo from Asda who sell a big choice of Ogx products and regularly have half price offers on across the range.
