The new generation of thickening shampoos both strengthen the hair fibres and improve the quality of your hair.
“Look for formulas that not only provide volume, but also strengthening and vitality,” says Rita Marcon, associate director of education at Kao Salon Australia and New Zealand, a distributor of leading hair care products.
“You want products that work over time to make your hair less fragile. The new thickening shampoos offer instant, volumising results. Thin, fine hair doesn’t have to mean fragile hair.”
