JĀSÖN Thin To Thick Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner (review)

I liked JĀSÖN's Extra Volume Hairspray and so naturally wanted to try the matching shampoo and conditioner. The entire range is a little pricey, but bearing in mind how much I liked the Smoothing Sea Kelp collection, I had high hopes for this Thin To Thick range, too. I don't mind spending more money on toiletries if they work.

JĀSÖN Thin To Thick Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner


The Shampoo
This lathers well for a natural shampoo and lifts away oil and dirt quite easily without stripping my hair of its natural protection. On my oily hair a couple of washes are required. My hair feels refreshed and rejuvenated and the fragrance is nice, making my hair smell beautifully fragrant.

The Conditioner
The creamy white formula feels great being massaged into my hair, and the consistency is suitable for distributing it throughout hair effortlessly. It feels lighter than some rival products but it nourishes really well! It rinses out easily, too, and without leaving any residue. The only downside is the bottle. It's the same design as the shampoo but doesn't pour out easily – vigorous shaking is required!

The Results
Silky soft, bouncy hair that shines beautifully and looks healthy. This is great, but the thickening aspect is more disappointing. While I'm pleased my hair's not weighed down, I would like a little more volume bearing in mind it costs more than other volumising products. It's not bad by any means, but there's room for improvement. I still love this range; it's very high quality and has left my hair looking and feeling far more radiant after the disappointment that was Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner.

The Ecology
There's nothing in either the shampoo or conditioner I'd personally worry about (there is perfume, but it's the last ingredient in both). A couple of organic ingredients are included, too. Parabens, mineral oils, SLS, SLES and phthalates are NOT included, thankfully. The Leaping Bunny logo – meaning JĀSÖN is cruelty-free – is present and correct, too. A great performance all round.

The Summary
While the volumising aspect is merely OK, the health of my hair has visibly improved since using this wonderful range, and for that reason I would recommend it. It's full of good ingredients, and makes do without any of the bad and is ecologically sound. If you're patient you can find the odd deal on-line, too, to help keep the price down. Give JĀSÖN a try!

YES!
NO!
Gently cleanses
Not quite as volumising as I'd like
Full of natural (& organic) goodness

Lovely conditioner, hair looks very healthy after use
