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!
