Curtain Call: John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Splendor Shampoo & Conditioner
Here’s another segment of Curtain Call, where I provide an honest review at the end of the life of a product I’ve been using. Today we have shampoo and conditioner from John Frieda. This is their Luxurious Volume Full Splendor Shampoo & Conditioner. I managed to get these with my Extra Care Bucks (ECB) from CVS to get more ECB with this purchase.
At 8.45 fl oz / 250 ml (bonus size of 30% more is 11 fl oz / 325 ml), this retails for $6.99 at CVS and is similarly priced at various retail and drugstores. It goes on sale from time to time and combined with coupons from your weekly Sunday paper or through tearpads in the store, this can essentially comes close to being free. The whole tube lasted me for almost 3 months. With my long hair, that’s pretty good. The front text reads “builds fullness at the roots; strengthens and conditions where needed for silky, full-bodied hair” and “boosts volume in all 3 dimensions“. The back of the tube reads the following:
“Instantly boosts volume in all 3 dimensions: fullness, thickness & lift
Luxurious Volume line builds fullness at the roots. thickens individual strands and increased lift for noticeably thicker, full-bodied hair with up to:
110% MORE FULLNESS*
50% MORE THICKNESS*
90% MORE LIFT*
(Shampoo) Luxurious Volume Full SplendorTM Shampoo strengthens hair from the inside out, plumps up hair and fills in damaged areas for healthy volume that starts at the roots. (Conditioner) Luxurious Volume Full SplendorTM Conditioner targets damaged areas, providing weightless conditioning only where needed for full-bodied style with a soft, silky feel.”
Verdict? I like it. While I’m not going to rush out and claim that this is my holy grail shampoo and conditioner, it does what it claims to do. It cleanses my hair well and I do feel like I get more volume after using this. The scent is pleasant and refreshing; a typical shampoo scent really. Conditioner works really well. I apply it to my ends first then even it out throughout my hair. I avoid getting conditioner on my scalp just as a preference. My scalp doesn’t need much conditioning really. If I am out and it’s on for a good price, I’ll grab it. Other than that, I’ll still keep my eyes peeled for something new to try that would wow me.
This product can easily be purchased in various retail and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, ULTA, CVS, and Walgreens. It is also available online at various websites that carry beauty and personal care products.
