I have got quite a lot of hair, so I don’t often think about using volumising products, but this one looked really interesting so I decided to give it a go. Here’s the low down on the John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day In Shower Treatment.
So John Frieda do some excellent hair products and they got into the dry shampoo game with the once beauty editor’s favourite, Volume Refresher, very early on before a lot of brands had even considered it. John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day In Shower Treatment is another innovation that offers a semi-permanent hair treatment.

So this is like an extra conditioner step in terms of how you apply it. You basically wash and condition your hair as usual, squeeze out the excess water, then this comes in to play.
Now I have only been using it in the root area, because sometimes that can get a little flat as my hair is so heavy, but if your hair is fine throughout, it can be applied from root to tip. Whatever you decide, you leave it on for 3-5 minutes to let it get to work.
I usually get on with other shower duties like cleansing my face, or exfoliating, and all that kind of jazz. Alternatively I apply it to my roots while I have the conditioner on my lengths and ends. I then rinse it out, use my regular heat protector and oil, and then rough dry it.
It makes my roots have much more volume than they would without it and it means that I can lightly curl the ends, or leave it straight, and my hair looks more styled than normal. It’s clever.
Because I don’t wash my hair that often, I think it’s hard for me to test whether it is wash-proof, because by the time I get around to washing it, my roots have understandably gone a bit flat anyway. So I can’t really comment on that element.
This is great if I want my hair to look extra nice, and it’s definitely something I’ll be using for special occasions. I think if my hair was finer, I’d probably be relying on it a lot more. The only downside is that the bottle is pretty small.
