Today we will be looking at the Trevor Sorbie Beautiful Volume Thickening Leave-In conditioner. This product is most suited to fine/flyaway hair, neither of which I really have but I love trying out volumising products as I hate having flat, limp hair!
This leave-in conditioner boasts it has a lightweight formula, which adds all day volume with heat protection and shine enhancing technology. I have mixed views about this claim. Firstly, I find that the formula is lightweight if used sparingly. When I’ve used too much it has made my hair very sticky and flat…. not good! So if you use this product be very careful of how much you are applying. I tend to do two sprays per section (I use large sections) and I have long hair. I don’t ever apply this product to my roots.
As for shine.. I don’t feel it is fair for me to comment either way on this point as I use several other shine enhancing products on my hair. It’s too hard for me to tell if this one adds shine or not unless I use it in isolation for a period of time.
Lastly, volume. I do find this product makes my hair fuller but it has been harder to get a smooth, sleek look. Saying that, I think it would be unfair to say this product is the sole cause, if at all. The weather has been/is pretty awful lately and as I’ve got naturally curly hair it’s prone to frizzing and losing that ‘just straightened’ look anyway. This product is great to use when curling your hair, though.
The smell of this product is gorgeous. It has a really perfumed fragrance which I have found lingers on my hair even the following day I have used it. Some people may not like this but I love it when my hair still smells fresh and clean the following day after washing as I don’t wash my hair on a daily basis (my hair just doesn’t need it!)
Another great aspect of this product is the heat protection. I use heat on my hair almost every day so the more I can protect it the better. I use this in addition to a heat protector spray. Here’s a review on the one I’m currently using: Vo5 Heat Protector Spray.
I will finish using up this product but I won’t be in a hurry to re-purchase. By that I don’t mean that I never will, I just won’t in the near future.
