Nanogen Hair Thickening Treatment review*

I’ve always had really thin hair, so I was really excited when I got sent some products from Nanogen to review. Anyone who also has thin hair will already know that it can be quite a bind. Not only is it really knotty – I used to cry when my mum or dad brushed it and my hairdressers are always terrified or hurting me – but second day hair is pretty much too greasy to leave the house without dry shampoo and it looks pretty pathetic in an up do or a ponytail. I was sent Nanogen’s Shampoo and Conditioner as well as their Hair Thickening Spray and I’ve been using it every wash for a couple of weeks now.

Firstly: usability. So, with both the shampoo and conditioner, you have to leave it on for a little while in the shower to get the best results. I apply the shampoo, massaging it in for 30 seconds, and then wash my face with Dermalogica’s Microfoliant before rinsing off the shampoo. I then apply the conditioner and leave this on while I wash and shave. When applying the shampoo, you can tell straight away that it has thickening properties – it feels a lot thicker than a normal shampoo – but it still lathers up really nicely. The Hair Thickening Spray is then applied to wet hair after washing and is activated by a blow dry.

I particularly love the spray, I apply it super liberally all over my roots and the lengths of my hair but it doesn’t make my hair greasy at all – thank goodness because I need all the help I can get on that score! Each of the products is enriched with peptides and anti-ageing hero ingredient hyaluronic acid which help to promote growth, volume and thickness while giving the hair a shine without making it look greasy.

Although no one has mentioned anything about my hair appearing thicker, I think the results are quite noticeable for myself. My hair definitely looks quite a bit more luscious, especially when worn curvy or wavy – have a look at my pics from the #bloggersball to see what I mean.

      I know – you can’t do a lot with thin hair at all – mine looks awful when I put it up! Since I published the post, I’ve actually had a couple of people comment on how thick my hair looks, so I’d definitely recommend it đŸ™‚ xx
