V is For... Volume

I mentioned in my O is For... Oil post that until recently I had been using all manner of anti dandruff shampoos to try and help my scalp - until I discovered coconut oil and jojoba oil!

So once I made that discovery I was free to choose a shampoo that didn't have the words anti, dandruff, dry, itchy or scalp on the bottle.

So what to choose, what to choose? There are so many choices, shampoo for straight hair, curly hair. Shampoo for greasy hair, shampoo for damaged hair.

But in the end I decided to delve in to the world of volumising shampoo. My hair can sometimes feel a little thin and look a little flat, especially if it has suddenly become greasy. Before my oil discovery I did actually try a volumising anti dandruff shampoo, which was ok but it didn't really solve either problem.

So far I have tried and tested three volumising shampoos, which I will now tell you about.

1) Tresemme Naturals Radiant Volume Shampoo

I liked the fact that this shampoo is made with more natural ingredients and lower in sulphates than other shampoos. I had to buy this shampoo online as it isn't in British stores.

It's not bad, my hair felt a little volumised after using it. However my hair felt a little, not tangled exactly, but you couldn't run your fingers through it without getting caught a little.

But other than that it's a good shampoo and as with most Tresemme shampoos it is quite a large bottle, so it should last me a while.

2) Yes To Tomatoes Daily Volumising Shampoo

This shampoo is even more natural than the Tresemme Naturals shampoo. I expected it to smell strongly of tomatoes... but it doesn't. Huh - go figure.

Anyway this shampoo leaves my hair feeling thicker and healthier

3) Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo

This is the most recent shampoo that I've tried. Made with Australian Hops this one volumises my hair and my hair doesn't seem to get greasy as quickly between washes.

Trying to choose which I think is best is difficult. It is between the Yes To Tomatoes or the Aussie shampoos.

That's not to say I don't like the Tresemme because I do like the Tresemme just not as much as the other two.

Decisions, decisions.

If I was told that I could only use one of these three shampoos for the rest of my life I think it would have to be...

the Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo.

This is just what works for my hair - we are all unique... and so is our hair it seems!
