You know I’m marginally obsessed with making my hair fat )and if you didn’t, now you do). Genetics blessed me with fine, limp hair and I’m a total sucker for anything that tells me it will make my hair fatter/thicker/healthier. I’m still using Activance, which I have told you about before (and still love!), but some new products came into my life a couple of months ago and holy heckballs, Batman is my hair looking better than ever!
I have been using Living Proof – Full Shampoo and Conditioner. This brand has a cult following in the States and is now stocked here by the magical Mecca. I can see why it has a huge number of fans; I don’t like to throw the word miracle around willy nilly but this might just be an appropriate occasion. I recently had lunch with a girlfriend who has known me for about 12 years and she remarked that my hair had never looked thicker and healthier. My hair actually *feels* thicker! My ponytail is bouncy! When I wear my hair out, I don’t look like a drowned rat by lunchtime!
On top of the Living Proof prods, I occasionally give my hair a spray with Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray, also from Mecca. It’s sort of an everything spray – thickening, heat-protecting, hairspray – which seems kind of frou frou, but you pop it in while your hair is damp (pre-blow dry) and then style as usual. It makes styling that bit easier and adds a bit more body to limpid locks.
I won’t say that I’ll never try another thickening product again (old habits die hard) but I don’t know if I’ll ever find anything that matches Living Proof – Full. Big call, but I’m prepared to stake my reputation on it.
