Fekkai Advanced - Full Blown Volume Shampoo Review

I received this shampoo free early August when Holt Renfrew had a shampoo swap day. 

A quote from their website:
Transforms hair from root to tip, gently cleansing while allowing even the thinnest of strands to find their thicker, fuller potential.

Fekkai Advanced with new Hair Plumping Complex amplifies the diameter of each strand to visibly lift from roots to ends. Plump up the volume.

My Experience
  • Price: Usually sells for ~$28 for 236mL but I received this free 
  • Scent: A light, fresh and clean flora scent, but it's nothing memorable or spectacular.  In fact the scent reminds me of hotel shampoos. The scent does not linger in one's hair. 
  • Texture: The clear gel-like shampoo has the perfect thick consistency in that is not watery.   The Fekkai shampoo is easy to apply to hair, and it lathers well and rinses out easily.
  • Lifespan: This bottle for lived a brief life of three weeks in my bathroom.  I usually wash my hair everyday and I use two quarter-sized amounts since my hair is long.
  • Pros: The product adds a natural and healthy "umph" ie volume and bounce to my limp hair without making my hair frizzy or drying it out .  It also leaves my hair soft, manageable and easy to tame.
  • Cons: Aside from the steep price for a bottle of shampoo, the product leaves my hair a bit dull.  In other words, there was no shine or gloss in my hair.
  •  that will help tame it, and give it a natural, healthy look.
  • Bottom line: I personally can live without this product.  I'll stick with my drug store brand shampoos- Pantene and Herbal Essences instead.  I personally think one is buying an image and lifestyle when he/she purchases Fekkai Shampoos.
  • Grade: 8.7/10
