OGX Bamboo Fiber-Full Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Hi Guys!

I love a good OGX 2 for £10 promotion as much as the next Boots loving maniac, so when I last went into Boots and saw the colourful array of OGX products I thought I would try a new range. I’ve tried the OGX Biotin & Collagen range before and the Niacin and Caffeine but this OGX Bamboo Fiber-Full range caught my eye as the bottles are bright green!

They just look like they would do good for your hair (I know that’s not the most concrete reason to buy a shampoo and conditioner lol but let’s go with it).

This range of shampoo and conditioner claims to plump up the look of your hair using bamboo fibers and soy proteins – I’d assume that something as natural as bamboo would work well to nourish your hair but I haven’t actually come across many beauty/haircare products with this ingredient in. Cue my wide eyed intrigue!

I was disappointed by one thing straight away that I should have realised…but the actual liquid isn’t green! Waaah – I squeezed out some of the shampoo and did a bit of a double take when I saw it was clear, then had some crushing disappointment when I realised it was just the green bottle. However, I gave it a good sniff and I was pleased! It smells lovely – it has a really fresh natural scent, unfortunately I couldn’t smell it on my hair afterwards when it was dry and styled so it must have all washed out, but it was still lovely while I used it in the shower.

One thing that’s great about OGX shampoos is that they really lather up well so your hair always feels like it’s had a deep clean – the shampoo and conditioner formulae are never thin and watery, meaning they are packed with great ingredients and you get lovely clean hair.

I already love OGX shampoos and conditioners as you tend to get alot in them! These bottles are 385ml and they feel very sturdy – perfect for anyone prone knocking stuff over, like me. 🙂

The conditioner is a greeny white colour and smells LOVELY! I love conditioners that really coat the hair so that you can almost use them as an intensive mask to hydrate the ends of your hair and I knew I could definitely use this one in that way.

After washing, drying and styling my hair for the first time I brushed through it using my Wet Brush and Tangle Teezer (now my hair is alot longer often I have to tackle it with both as it can get knotty!) I noticed that my hair had become a bit…elasticcy (hey you squiggly red line I know that’s not a real word). As in, when I brushed it, it was like some of my hair strands STRETCHED! I’d rather this didn’t happen as I don’t want my hair to break, I will need to see the more I use it but other than this weird elastic side effect the rest of my hair felt strong and shiny. My favourite range from OGX so far is the Biotin and Collagen one – it smells so good, like sweet and smoky at the same time!

OGX Niacin3 & Caffeine Shampoo and Conditioner

I had been wanting to try the OGX Niacin & Caffeine shampoo and conditioner ever since a picture of them popped up on my Instagram feed. I’m all up for anything hair related that stops breakage and encourages growth!

This is why I tried the range from OGX, but also why I started using the Lee Stafford Hair Treatment ‘For Hair that never grows past a Certain Length’. Though, I’m an eejit and forgot that it’s probably a good idea to use these two things separately to see which has a better result on my hair :/.

Anyway, I have been using the OGX Niacin & Caffeine shampoo and conditioner for about a week now and have been impressed with it so far! They were on promotion in Boots on a 2 for £10, but they have also been on promotion on a 3 for 2 as well! OGX do a third step product in this range which is a Root Stimulator Spray (I haven’t tried this yet).

ogx niacin and caffeine

I quite like OGX as a brand, I loved their Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner range for the scent alone – but this is something new that really does claim to improve the condition of your hair.

The first thing I noticed when I started using it is the scent of this shampoo and conditioner. I did a Boots Haul Youtube video recently and I sniffed these in it and was amazed to find that they smelled like Red Bull. Like, wtf. I know these have ‘caffeine’ in but I never expected the range to smell like an energy drink, especially when their other ranges smell so good!

(BTW I hate Red Bull but am willing to set my olfactory differences aside for the benefit of my mop…for those of you who haven’t read the book Perfume that word means NOSE).

Smells aside, the shampoo is lovely – it’s quite a thick shampoo so this means a little goes a long way and you should be concentrating on your roots anyway. Apparently I have heard you shouldn’t actually need to shampoo the ends of your hair as the suds from your roots should run down and wash the ends of your hair anyway! If you shampoo your hair in a way where you aren’t knotting it up it also helps reduce breakage etc when you are brushing your hair after a shower.

The conditioner, again, is a very thick consistency and still has a hint of Red Bull about it. If this smell doesn’t incite memories of being hung over or being in Oceana (I’m looking at you, Vodbull Uni times) then you are well on your way to being a loyal user of this range.

The range feels very nourishing to use but in more of a scientific way. Stimulating the roots of your hair will definitely help with hair health and growth but I do think that my hair is in a better condition for using this range. I also love the Lee Stafford hair treatment being back in my life – it improves the condition of my hair SO MUCH and it has definitely helped the growth!

Here is my previous post earlier last year which shows you the before and after when I had my hair cut really short. I started using the Lee Stafford treatment and it had a really good effect on the growth of my hair!

Have you used this OGX range? Do YOU think it smells like Red Bull? Or is something wrong with me…

Thanks for reading, am about to go use this now 🙂
