John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Hairspray
Advantages: Thickens & gives volume, Long lasting hol
Disadvantages: The price when not on offer.
John Frieda are well known for making a large range of hair care products including shampoo, conditioners and styling products such as mousse, sprays and other products. Their range can be purchased in stores such as Boots, Superdrug and local supermarkets.
~ THE HAIRSPRAY ~
The thickening hairspray is part of the Luxurious volume range which comes in blue coloured packaging. The hairspray is salon formula and claims to lock your hair style for up to 24 hours. The product also claims to give your hair more thickness, body and volume. I have flat hair and often like some volume in it, so I regularly try out different products to achieve this look. I don't have long hair so it should be quite easy for me to get some kind of volume how-ever my hair is very flat and limp and previous products I have tried such a mousse and spray's haven't really worked.
The hairspray comes in a light metallic blue can with a clear plastic lid which covers the nozzle is which the hairspray comes out. On the front it states that the product locks in style and is a thickening hairspray. On the back of the can there are directions for using the product in a number of different languages. It also has a list of ingredients and states that the product extremely flammable. The design on the can is very simple; how-ever I find that this stands out as I know the blue coloured packaging is for the Luxurious volume range, so I can find this product easily when looking for it in my local boots store.
~ PRICE/AVALIABILITY ~
I purchased this from my local Boots store when it was on offer with other products on 3 for 2. The product will cost you approximately £5.79 for a 250ml can of this. As far as I know they don't do smaller cans of this spray. You may also find this product in Superdrug and local supermarkets; how-ever prices may vary.
~ USING THE PRODUCT ~
Directions on the can are as follows: For best results, wash hair with luxurious volume shampoo & conditioner. Hold can 15-20cms away from the hair and spray evenly on finished style.
I have to admit, when using this product I have never used it with the Luxurious volume shampoo and conditioner. I use my normal shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair which isn't part of the john Frieda range. I styled my hair as normal, which included straightening it. I like to have volume in my hair, especially when I go out for a night out on the town so I was hoping this spray would do the trick. I held the can approximately 15-20cms away from my hair and sprayed lightly over my hair. I then used my fingers to ruffle my hair slightly to help give it a bit more volume. The hair-spray does have the typical hair-spray hair, but not too over-powering like other hair sprays can be. I did notice if you spray the product too close to your hair this can make your hair feel slightly wet/damp. After I have ruffled my hair slightly with my fingers at the roots, I did apply a little more to ensure that the style would stay and I would hopefully have volume all night.
~ RESULTS ~
When I finished styling my hair I had noticeably more volume to my hair which made it look more glamorous. My hair didn't feel stiff or sticky and it didn't make my hair look dull either. I normally pop my hairspray in my bag when I go out into town, how-ever I didn't take it with me this time and the can was too big to fit into my bag anyway. The smell of the spray disappeared within about an hour. After a few hours of being out, I popped to the toilets and had a look in the mirror to see how my hair was holding. Sure enough when I looked into the mirror my hair still have volume in it, and the style was exactly how it was when I left the house. I did ruffle my hair slightly at the roots again, to give that little bit of extra volume, how-ever I was very pleased with how the product fixed my hair. My hair stayed looking great all night until I got home.
~ OVERALL OPINION ~
I only really purchased this product because it was on offer, otherwise I probably would not have bought it. I'm glad I did buy as it's what I've been looking for, for my hair for a long time. The spray not only fixes my style but gives my hair volume and thickness without it feeling sticky or stiff. I was also surprised that the product brushes out easily without leaving any residue in my hair. The product is long lasting and lives up to its claims. I have to give this product 5 out of 5 stars as it does exactly what it claims to and is long lasting and makes even very flat, limp hair thick and full of volume. When I run out of this product I will be buying it again and I highly recommend it to others.
