Pros: does what it says
Cons: needs conditioner after every use
As I grow older, parts of me I wish were thinner get thicker (tush, waist line, thighs) and the part I wish was thicker gets thinner - my hair. My hairdresser describes my hair as "angel fine" which she says is even finer and thinner than "baby fine." I don't know about that, but I know I come by fine hair naturally. Both my parents have very fine hair.
So the search begins for the diet I can stick with to thin the parts of me that are thickening, and to find the beauty products that will thicken the parts that are thinning. It was with this search in mind that I picked up a bottle each of Jason Thin to Thick Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo guarantees to make hair 10% thicker after the first use. With most "volumizing" shampoos this means that instead of being shiny and silky, my hair will be frizzed - more volume, but I look like I'm having a bad hair day. This was not the result with Jason. With Jason, my hair actually did appear thicker but I didn't lose out on shine.
The instructions with Jason shampoo read, "Apply a moderate amount to thoroughly wet hair. Gently massage into scalp with fingertips. Rinse, then shampoo a second time if necessary. For best results, follow with Thin-To-Thick Natural Hair Thickening Conditioner to detangle and to add fullness, shine and manageability." I only used one application of the shampoo. After rinsing my hair and scalp felt absolutely stripped dry. I don't always use conditioners as they tend to weigh my hair down, but this was a shampoo that clearly was going to need to be followed by a good conditioner. I did follow with the Jaons Thin to Thick conditioner, and was pleased with the result.
The shampoo comes out of the bottle smelling faintly of peppermint. It's a very light scent and not at all unpleasant. The shampoo reminded me in color of vaseline.. I have short hair and used about a nickel size squish in my palm and that was plenty for me to wash my short, fine hair. I found that my hair wasn't quite wet enough to start, but adding a little water really made it lather and work better.
I have been using it for about a week and am very pleased with the shampoo and conditioner in combination. My brown hair actually looks a bit darker...wish I could say the same for my grey. I can notice less scalp seeming to show through my hair. Of course, I'm still an angel even if my hair seems to be approaching baby fine.
If you have thin or thinning hair, I would certainly recommend trying Jason thin to thick shampoo and conditioner. For once, a hair product that seems to be doing what it claims.
