Just that really! I have very fine, coloured hair. I love the idea of volumising products but more often than not they weigh my hair down too much. Anything that coats the hair too much makes it greasy by the evening. Any ideas? Willing to spend £££ for something good.
I am just finishing a trail of the Pantene Micellar shampoo & foam conditioner for SuperSavvy (P&G recruit people to test and give feedback on new products), have to say this one is good for fine hair. Genuinely. Leave it very soft & shiny!
I use Toni & Guy Danage Repair shampoo and conditioner. It’s in Tesco & Boots in an orange and white cylindrical container. I also use Revlon all in one leave in conditioner spray afterwards. Doesn’t leave my very fine hair weighed down and the Revlon stuff is also volumising without being sticky or gluey.
Also I have experimented with volumising shampoo and conditioner but find it best to moisturise with shampoo and cond and add volumising products separately afterwards. I don’t think volumising shampoo and conditioner are very good for fine damaged hair.
I have fine hair that gets weighed down easily, and I hate shampoos that seem to coat my hair. My favourites are the Toni and guy volume and shine, and the herbal essences biorenew lightweight shine (green tea and cucumber). Both make my hair really smooth and shiny but are so lightweight I also get a lot of volume too.
If you fancy disappearing down an internet rabbit hole for a while you could look into the curly girl method. I don't actually do it properly, but I follow their advice regarding which chemicals to avoid, which directs me towards certain products.Look up the facebook group for more info.
Just reporting back that I bought Kerastase volumifique in the end- used it for the first time yesterday and I swear my hair is already better today- it seems to have more volume and is less oily at the roots.
