Extra Volume Shampoo Key Features:
Moroccanoil® Extra Volume Shampoo works weightlessly to give fine, limp hair a boost of natural-looking volume, while gently cleansing each strand. Infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil, revitalizing nutrients and a plant extract that naturally plumps up the cuticle.
Extra Volume Conditioner Key Features:
Extra Volume Conditioner contains antioxidant argan oil and nutrients to cleanse, detangle and bring back body to hair. It beautifies hair with shine, manageability and movement, while making it easier to style. The formula is free of sulfates, phosphates and parabens, so it’s safer for the environment and won’t dry, fade or strip hair of color.
I use this often on my clients who are looking for added volume and/or thickness. A repair shampoo or hydrating shampoo will be too heavy and will weigh down the hair strand, making it lay flatter.
The bonus here is, before the Argan Oil craze, anything containing oil was thought to weigh the hair down and was unthinkable for fine hair. We have come to learn that certain natural oils, such as Argan Oil, will not only be light on the hair but offers many other benefits as well. Great news for fine hair that is brittle or damaged and really needs that extra moisture.
The shampoo has a stickiness to it (best way for me to describe it, it’s not technically sticky), and doesn’t feel slippery like a hydrating/moisturizing product. It cleanses really well and is designed to actually plump that cuticle. If you ask me, there isn’t a whole ton of hydrating done in the shampooing process, it is designed for cleansing at this stage, but doesn’t mean though that there are not shampoos that will strip the hair or damage it further. Professional volume shampoos are not stripping, they are designed to cleanse well but gently. (Exactly why it is worth forking out an extra $10 for).
The conditioner is where you notice the consistency is differs from most conditioners. It feels lighter, not watered down or anything, just not as thick and creamy. Think small peaks vs firm peaks if you will (cooking terms). The conditioner also contains Argan Oil for nourishment, and did I mention both the shampoo and conditioner are sulfate and paraben free? What more could you ask for?
