Volumizing hair goodies

    I wanted to pass along some things that I use that really help with volume in my hair. There are three products that seem to make a huge difference with me.
    1. Body Full line by Redken (I love this--especially the root spray)
    2. Body Double by Sebastian (super duper, but a little drying)
    3. Charles Worthington "thick" line (cheap, too)

    None of these are super expensive....and certainly worth trying if you haven't already.
    I thought I'd start this thread for others who are unsure of what products to use.
    Any other tried and true products??

    Thanks KY.

    I like the Revivogen Shampoo and conditioner. I alternate between that and Biolage products.

    My hair feels thicker after using Rev. conditioner.

    Body Double-what is that? spray, serum, mousse? I looked for it and was confused?

    thanks for this thread. I have a lot of trouble with products. If I am desperate for important occasions I use the kerasome product and then spray it with KMS. stiff and gross but well-camouflaged.

    Usually I stick with tricomin spray on my scalp ( I am more worried about a healthy scalp than my hair) and then I use some leave in conditioner for manageability like bumble and bumble or neutrogena triple therapy. But it it leaves it flat which shows the wide part.

    Body Double is a line made by Sebastion. It is shampoo, conditioner, thick spray, thick spray light, and foam. I really like the foam and the shampoo. It has a citrus like smell. I like the Redken Body full a little better, but I usually rotate.
    Body Double is fairly new. I found out today that even JC Penneys carries it now. It is in a black and pink bottle.

    Great thread KY Girl!

    It is time for me to look into volumizing products. My hair is better than it has been in a long time and I want some more volume so that I can cut back on the Toppik and let my scalp breathe and get some sunlight.

    Hugs, Tapia
  6. I like Progaine 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner. The regular Progaine is really drying, but the 2 in 1 is good. I also use Pantene Full and Thick conditioner. It does make my hair feel thicker.

    Fuller Thicker Hair styling mousse is good, too.

    I mix Kerasome Hair Thickening Liquid with the mousse and get good results.
  7. I just ordered a bunch of Sebastian Body Double stuff online. It was pretty expensive- hope it's good!
  8. Ok, just ordered the Redken Body Full line, too!

    I use Thicker Fuller Hair and I think it does poof out my hair quite a bit. I really notice it on a day where there is high humidity. I like the shampoo and volumizing spray.

    Before I got my bonded piece I used Dove Volumizing shampoo/conditioner combo and LOVED it. It gave light conditioning without weighing my hair down, it was quick and easy and didn't cost a fortune.

    I use Pantene Full and Thick shampoos and conditioners. I also use Pantene root volumnizer. I did see a difference when I started using them, but now I'm to the point where I think my hair is used to it and it doesn't look as good as it once was.

    I will search these posts for other options! :)

    Has anyone ever tried the shampoo, conditioner and hair fattener by toppick? I don't use it all the time, I rotate but when I want my hair to be a thick as possible I use it and well all I can say is va va voooom!

    Really Teester???? I read the pamphlet that comes with Toppik and I didn't know if I should buy the shampoo, etc.
    Maybe I should try the hair fattener. I have so many products here, it's unbelievable. I'm using Jasons Shampoo and Revivogen Shampoo.
    I just tried Jasons Conditioner and I don't care for it.

    Have you or anyone tried Pantene's New Restoration shampoo for frizzy hair? It's in a tube, around $6.00. I might get that for the summer, when the humidity kicks in I'm a dead duck.

    I don't like Jason's conditioner either and honestly I find the toppik line better at fattening my hair then Jason's shampoo but I rotate. The toppik line tends to be a little drying but every now and then it's ok.

    I tried another Toppik product, supposedly a thickener I think--was it Toppek or something similar? Anyway, it was horrible, heavy, gooey, made my hair feel stiff.
