Big Hair Full Of Secrets

I have fine hair, and not a lot of it. *sigh*
It sucks but the first step is acceptance, isn't it? This means that the first type of shampoo/conditioner I gravitate towards it the Volumizing kind. I have tried many different ranges from salon to drugstore and my favourite volumizing range to date had been Shu Uemura Muroto Volume (reviewed here) but it's so expensive I have not considered buying it again (FYI the Shu Uemura shampoo and conditioner cost a cool $100 together not including tax). So since then I had been getting by with a drugstore find - the Herbal Essences Naked Volumizing shampoo and then slapping on a L'Oreal Total Repair hair mask afterwards on the days where I wanted more volume. It was good enough but I knew that bigger hair was possible with just shampoo & conditioner. Enter Drybar Texas Tea:

I kindly received a selection of Drybar hair products a couple of months ago and the Texas Tea Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner are the stars of the show for me. The Cream Soda Smoothing Cream was stolen by The Boyfriend because he loves it and won't give it back - it was too heavy for my fine hair but for medium/course hair it's perfect. Here's what I love about them:

  1. the shampoo is sulfate free which means it will be gentle on colour treated hair
  2. you only need a small amount of both shampoo and conditioner to get the job done
  3. shampoo lathers really well
  4. smells amazing
  5. easily available at Sephora for $23
  6. they provide volume without the need of additional products afterwards

The results are comparable to back when I was using the much more expensive Shu Uemura Muroto Volume products. I'm pretty happy about that. I do have to say that I love the shampoo a tiny bit more than the conditioner... (the conditioner doesn't have as much "slip" as I tend to like) but if you have fine hair and are looking for a volumized treat - don't forget to check these out.
