OVERVIEW:

Attention Beauty and Hair Lovers! Does your hair lack volume? Mine sure does! I am always throwing my hair in a ponytail or a messy bun to hide my lack of volume. Does this sound familiar? I have such fine and thin hair. I have struggled with getting volume in my hair for my whole life. I have tried hundreds of products. Some of the products I have tried are complete wins and some are complete fails. In this lacking volume series, I want to share with you my hair volume journey. I will feature products and tips to getting the most volume in your hair. I will also share fails along the way too. I hope you enjoy this series and learn some things along the way.

Up first is a set of products from éprouvage . This line of hair care has eight products in total. I am going to review three of them. I received the Fortifying Shampoo, Fortifying Conditioner, and Reparative Treatment Masque. I have been so impressed with this line and I just had to share it with you. My hair has never looked so volumized. The entire line is available at Ulta and is affordable. Let’s get to the review!

Review éprouvage Fortifying Shampoo:

IMG_2470

éprouvage e says this about the fortifying shampoo:

A restorative shampoo that nurtures stressed hair & replenishes tired strands. Hair is left stronger, healthier & more manageable. Ideal for color treated hair.

Benefits:

  • Cleanses hair and scalp while repairing damage
  • Increases hair’s resistance to breakage
  • Replenishes moisture and improves manageability

Usage:

Apply to wet hair. Massage into a lather, covering all areas of the scalp & hair. Rinse thoroughly.

Thoughts:

This shampoo is amazing. I love how well it lathers and cleans my hair. I can really feel it getting all the dirt and grime out of my hair. And can I talk about the scent! This shampoo smells amazing. The scent lasts a very long time in the hair as well. I kept smelling my hair even the following day. I am just so impressed with this shampoo. My hair had so much volume even after just one washing. I just couldn’t believe it. I have used this shampoo for over a week and I am still in love with it. My hair gets use to shampoos very quickly and then they stop working. However, that is not the case with this shampoo. The shampoo claims it replenishes moisture and increases the hair’s resistance to breakage. I completely believe those claims. My hair just feels so amazing. I am such a huge fan and I highly recommend this shampoo.

Review éprouvage Fortifying Conditioner:

IMG_2472

éprouvage says this about the fortifying conditioner:

This fortifying daily conditioner strengthens, hydrates & seals the hair’s cuticle. It protects hair & prevents future breakage, resulting in younger, more manageable hair.  Ideal for color treated hair.

Benefits:

  • Restores hydration and nourishes hair to improve dry, damaged ends.
  • Increases hair’s resistance to breakage
  • Replenishes moisture and improves manageability

Usage:

Apply to clean, wet hair starting at the ends, working up to the scalp. Leave in for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Thoughts:

This conditioner is perfection. I love how the conditioner smells as well. The entire line just smells amazing. You don’t need a ton of this conditioner for it to work. A small amount goes a long way. I love how thick the conditioner is. It doesn’t weight my hair down at all or make it look greasy. My hair feels so soft and it really is manageable. I don’t even need to use a leave-in treatment. My hair continues to feel so soft and hydrated even days later. It really does help the ends of my hair and my hair looks like I just came from the beauty shop. I am obsessed with this conditioner and I highly recommend trying it.

Review éprouvage Reparative Treatment Masque:

IMG_2471 IMG_2474

éprouvage says this about the treatment masque:

This formula offers a deeply penetrating, reparative conditioning treatment that cumulatively strengthens from within.

Benefits:

  • Strengthens and nourishes tired, distressed hair.
  • Deeply conditions and helps to repair hair’s lipid barrier
  • Restores strength and elasticity, leaving hair more manageable

Usage:

Apply to clean, wet hair starting at the ends, working up to the scalp. Leave in for 3-5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. Use 1-2 times per week.

Thoughts:

This hair masque is awesome. I love that you only have to leave it on for 3-5 minutes. It conditions the hair so well and my hair looks so healthy. My hair has never looked this good even after going to a salon. This hair masque is one of the best hair masques I have ever used. Again, it smells amazing. I just put it in after washing my hair and rinse it out after I finish my other shower activities. It is so quick and I am left with beautifully soft hair afterwards. My hair looks and feels so much stronger. I am a huge fan of this leave in masque and I highly recommend trying it.

Final Thoughts and Additional Information:

I am so in love with the éprouvage hair care line. I am going to have to try all their products. My hair has so much volume now (as can be seen from the picture above). I didn’t even blow dry my hair. The volume is completely from air drying. I am beyond impressed with this line. If your hair is lacking volume like mine, I highly recommend trying these products. If you try them, let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I will continue to use these products and will be repurchasing them.

A little about the main ingredients:

Active Plant Cells form the Egyptian Blue Lily plant cultivated for its anti-aging and skin balancing properties. This smart cell therapy better anticipates and helps slow down the aging process

French Oak Extract
