I had read great reviews about this product prior to purchasing it so maybe my expectations were heighted a little too much.
BACKGROUND INFO: I have thick naturally wavy hair that is cut into a lob. Humidity is my worst enemy and my hair over all, is difficult to manage. I wash my hair every 3 days (morning) but have to style it with my GHD every morning. My scalp is 'normal' but my ends due to styling are dry.
SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER: Its smells absolutely divine, its usually the reason I continue to experiment with Frederick Fekkai products. It lathers well and I shampoo just the one time followed by a small dollop of conditioner.
RESULTS: The day I wash my hair, I absolutely LOVE it. Its so nice and glossy and always looks so healthy, it even sits a lot better. But the next day, my scalp is oily. With difficult hair it's just a hassle having to wash it.
CONCLUSION: I do love the way my hair feels and smells, but I will only use it once a week maximum. I think it would be fabulous for really dry and coarse hair. I do recommend you have one in your hair stash.
Gives me that extra shine!
Since my hair is so dry, I'm a sucker for anything that says it'll give me shine. I used this today, and I noticed a difference right away. My hair felt silkier, softer, and a lot shinier. I used this with the conditioner as well. If I wasn't so hooked on my Macadamia Nut Oil shampoo and conditioner, I would definitely use this on a regular basis.
Definitely Worth the Cost
I've colored my hair since I was 18 years of age and needed a product that would make my hair look healthy and restore its shine. Although, the Fekkai shampoo/conditioner products are on the pricey side, I was very satisfied with the results.
I have medium brown hair, but color it blonde, every two months. I also use a hairdryer and curling iron, several times per week. The glossing shampoo added a great deal of shine to my hair and it made it easier to style. I have used countless salon and drug store shampoo and conditioner brands, but the glossing Fekkai shampoo/conditioner has been one of my favorites.
I typically wash my hair every or every other day. Once I am in the shower, I apply a small amount, typically the size of a dime of the product to the palm of my hand and rub it into the roots and tips of my hair. I then wash out the shampoo with lukewarm water. The great thing about this product; is that a small amount of product goes a long way. I have long hair that goes to the middle of my back and an 8 0z shampoo lasts me a month and a half.
I have also tried salon brands; Biolage, Enjoy, Aveda, but very few brands have made my hair look as healthy.
I would recommend the glossing shampoo to those that have color treated hair and use flat/curling irons and want to restore their hairs shine.
I have used Fekaii shampoos/conditioners for a few years now and would recommend them to others. One, should alternate shampoo/conditioner brands every month in a half to two months, so that one's hair doesn't get used to any one shampoo or conditioner. Loreal salon formula for color treated hair is also a good alternative.
