The product

I’ve tried three products of Phyto’s Volume collection: the Volumizing Shampoo, Volumizing Jelly Mask and Volumizing Blow-dry Spray. Designed to add volume and body to fine hair, these could be the ones for me.

The review

The Phyto Volumizing Shampoo looks and feels unique: it has a very liquid consistency that feels gel-like at the same time. I haven’t seen this reddish-brown shade in shampoo before, and it freaked me out a little at first. Luckily, the colour doesn’t show once the shampoo is worked into the hair.

This one lathers like crazy – a little goes a long way. It gets rid of any build-up I have on my scalp (which I get because I use dry shampoo every other day) and leaves my hair feeling clean. Volume-wise, this one doesn’t do anything for me, but I like the way it feels in my hair. Happy to use this one!

Where I’d normally follow up with a conditioner, I’m using this Volumizing Jelly Mask instead. It says to apply this to mid-lengths and the end of the hair, leave it on for 2 to 3 minutes and rinse it out.

Just like the shampoo, this mask has a consistency I’ve never seen before. It’s a dark orange-brown thick gel that seems to disappear once you work it into the lengths of your hair. I do prefer a traditional conditioner because I have dry ends and this mask doesn’t seem to nourish them. I also feel like this doesn’t add body. Not a bad product, but I don’t notice a difference when I use it.

Last but not least: the Volumizing Blow-dry Spray. This should be sprayed onto towel-dried roots and mid-lengths to add volume to pre-dried hair. The concentrated formula is activated by heat, so you’ll need to blow-dry your hair to see any results.

It’s not the finest mist but it coats the hair nicely. I use my fingers to work this into my roots and lengths and follow up with a quick blow-dy. I don’t like the smell of this – it’s strong and reminds me of alcohol – not in a good way – but I do notice a difference when using the Volumizing Blow-dry Spray. It adds more body and grip to my hair – making it the ideal base for a variety of hairstyles.

Am I in love with this collection? No. Event though, with my fine hair, I should be the ideal candidate but I’m not seeing enough of a result. However, I do really enjoy using the shampoo and I’ll keep the Volumizing Blow-dry Spray for a quick spritz & added body now and then.

The price

The Phyto Volume collection is available at (online) pharmacies. Depending on where you get them, products are in the € 10 – € 20 price range.
