This product seriously saved my life. I had thick, thick hair that I was so vain about. And then my hair fell out in giant clumps two summers ago–my beautiful hair, all gone except for thin wispy strands, just in time for my senior year of university. I started using this product and oh my gosh, the difference it made. You can see it from the pictures below! I went from thin wispy strands in September to fuller, voluminous hair by summer!

Lots of mixed feelings
After a giving birth to my son my hair went through a thinning stage.My normal hair has always been dark, rich, and full, so it was obviously heart breaking to see all my thick beautiful hair falling away. I was embarrassed to put my hair up because you could see the thinning stops so I decided after reading different blogs stating that this line was the most cost effective and did what it said it would do. So i to give this line a try! Much to my surprise the thinning of slowed to an almost stop. I noticed my thinner spots filling back in and now have new growth around my forhead. I used the shampoo and conditioner on top of my regular pre/postnatal and a biotin supplement. The smell and packaging of these products are great! My husband and I both raved about the products! Until recently. I noticed after continued use that no matter how much you rinse and scrub my hair looks and feels greasy and dirty! So I decided to stop the use of the conditioner and only use the shampoo and it still had the same results! It’s gross to feel like I need another shower and to have to use a completely different shampoo/conditioner just to get the first ones out! I can’t style or blow dry my hair without it looking like a tub or grease that I hadn’t washed in weeks! My husband noticed the same problem and suggested we buy another brand. Which left me thinking maybe it’s called thick and full because it leaves your hair so full of residue that it gives the appearance of thicker hair when in actuality it’s just built up product. So i decided to read more reviews and see if others experienced the same issue and I was not at all surprised to see I was right, that others felt the same way. So this leaves me feeling complexd. This line while helped my original problem has now created a new one with which untimely lead to discontinued use because I absolutely hate products that make me feel I need another shower after just finishing one. It’s a big pet peeve of mine. Very busy over worked mom of 3 little ones does not have time to reshower and reshower her hair in hopes to look decent for the day. Hopefully your brand has a simple and clean line of products that would fit the bill. Because this one left me with mixed emotions and it was mostly negative.

Hair Falls Out
Hair loss from Texas
Used this shampoo for two weeks and my hair was non stop falling off my head. Save your money and pass on buying this product.
Tiffany from Ohio
Made literal PATCHES of my hair fall out!!
Hair is falling out!!!
Sophie from Minnesota
I switched to this shampoo (I was looking for something cheaper bra cause I am a college student), and my hair immediately started falling out a lot more than normal. It leaves my ends feeling dry and my scalp feels like it has a lot of buildup. I have straight/wavy hair, but it’s really thick and it very rarely ever gets greasy. I will be switching back to my Shea Moisture or Biolage.
The only good thing about this product is that it smells good, but you shouldn’t buy your product based on pure scent.
Losing my hair
Link from USA
I’ve been using this shampoo for years. Recently I noticed my hair is constantly falling out. My husband pointed out that if he even touches my head clumps fall out. I wasn’t sure if it was the shampoo but I researched it and apparently there’s a lawsuit against it for hair loss? Anyways I switched shampoo and my hair stopped falling out… so I don’t recommend you try this.
Hurry go and get it😃

Love ❤️ this shampoo help s my hair to look full and better to manage
Hair loss, whoa!
Berry from Maywood, ILLINOIS
Let me tell you!! I have always been a person to “shed” quite a bit, but this shampoo takes the cake. DMDM hydantoin is an ingredient. From looking at the reviews hair loss is the biggest complaint. OGX is my go to shampoo, but not anymore….unless they get rid of that specific ingredient from their products. I rather lose a few bucks & throw out the rest than lose chunks of my hair. Read the reviews & news post before purchasing something that will & can affect you. Blessings!!!
Hair never actually feels clean
WeedoBetch88 from Michigan
Something about this shampoo and conditioner leave my hair feeling gross. Like, greasy or I have product in my hair even though I don’t. It didn’t leave my hair looking/ feeling any thicker. Don’t bother.
Something is different
Chris from Virginia
I’ve been using this for awhile now 2 1/2+ years. I started a new bottle about 3 months back and it seems like more and more hair has fallen out. My brother pointed it out first that the top of my head has thinned out significantly and you can see my scalp in some places. After doing research I notice a lot of people have the same problem. Immediately threw it in the trash
Hair felt gross and sticky
brittany from Florida
Tried to use for a few weeks. Although it did exactly what it states…thicker hair. My hair hair felt so gross and sticky after drying. Prior to this product my hair was silky and thin. I was hoping to achieve the same but thicker. My hair became dry, stiff, and almost as if I rubbed hair gel through it after drying and before styling. I do not recommend for thin straight hair.
DO NOT BUY!
Stephanie from Salt Lake City, UT
I have been using this product for a few months & have lost so much hair since I have been using. I did not think it was related to the product until I did some research.
Made my fine, straight hair worse!!!
Linlin from Las Vegas, Nevada
I’ve been using this product for several months, and it left my hair in worse condition than before. It’s way too soft — and fly-away! None of which is an improvement over no conditioner at all. The only good thing I experienced with this product is the fragrance — if it was a product that did even the minimum of what any conditioner should do, I would buy it just for the fragrance. Too bad, because I love other OGX products.
Volume but heavy
Kprater28 from Lexington Kentucky
It’ll make your hair feel full and give volume, but at the same time it’ll weigh it down. Your hair will become oily, and be due for a wash compared to normal time.
sgjio1827 from Marlton
I bought this shampoo hoping I could achieve more thick and voluminous hair. However, after using this product only 2 times it left a waxy/sticky coat over my hair and actually made me loose hair. I have never used a product that made me loose so much hair especially if it claims to strengthen your hair
I am satisfied with the product
Devo from Thorton, CO
As a conditioner
They changed the formula now no good
Sheri Boo from Chester, Va
i am so disappointed that a product I have used forever has changed. I noticed no difference in shampoo. But this new formula for the conditioner is just sad. totally dries out hair as if theres no conditioner in it at all. My first clue was it was not squeezing out of the bottle right. It actually tangles my hair leaving it hard now and not soft and easy to get a wide tooth comb through this thin hair. I am so disappointed and am going to have to change brands. I pulled out a sample bottle and then this. The ingredient’s are switched around and some changed. I am going to have to throw away a bottle 3/4 full. I used so much last night to try to make it work and its still horrid.
would not buy again
TJ from Midwest
Not sure if this is a bad bottle, but I have a heck of a time getting product out of container, and when I do, its just a blob and it doesn’t lather up. Not to impressed at this point.
I was surprised I like this so much.
Hals from Missoula
I was surprised I liked this shampoo and conditioner so much. I think the people who didn’t like it probably were using it every time they washed their hair. I alternate with a higher quality shampoo and conditioner (lanza and a purple shampoo) and I’ve never had a problem with build up. Im obsessed with the smell! I can go to bed with my hair wet and just brush it in the morning and it looks like I just had a blow out. Is this the best shampoo and conditioner for the health of your hair? Probably not.. but its a good one to have in the shower for the days you want something different.
This smells AWFUL
BM from NY
Smells absolutely awful, would NOT recommend!
Pretty packaging, bad product
JustFine from Boston, MA
Look, I’m a sucker for packaging. Something about the packaging of this brand makes it look like it has a slightly higher quality than, say, Pantene or Dove. But I was fooled! The formula is VERY thin and it left my fine hair (which is usually very soft) feeling dry. For both of those reasons, I ended up using a TON on product just to feel like I conditioned my hair at all. Even then, I still had to follow up with a leave-in conditioner (by Hask, not this brand). It does smell good, but it also contains a purple dye that was off-putting. I’m honestly surprised at the good reviews on this conditioner!
Don’t fall for the pretty packaging and good smell! Not worth it!!
Feels stripped and tangly when wet, then looks amazing
Carolee from WV
This is the strangest shampoo (and the conditioner) to me. I am used to shampoos that feel frothy and rich, and conditioners that feel silky when I rinse them out. I do a lot of detangling with my fingers in the shower because my hair is so long. It’s well past my waist, almost to the top of my legs. Finger detangling in the shower helps prevent a lot of breakage. This shampoo (and the conditioner) scared me at first. I could hardly get my fingers through my hair. It knotted up when I shampooed, and took forever to get the knots out. The shampoo seemed to completely strip my hair, or so it felt. I’m talking SQUEEEEEAKY clean. I assumed that when it dried, it would look like a broom. But it didn’t. I also used the conditioner, which didn’t give me a warm fuzzy feeling, either. I didn’t use any detangler or hair oil out of the shower because I wanted to see exactly how this stuff worked for me. I carefully detangled with a flat detangling brush and let it air dry. And it looked amazing! I was shocked. My hair was so shiny and soft. It had lots of movement, and my waves had definition. I’ve used about half of both bottles so far, and I’m not seeing any change. My hair doesn’t seem to be drying out or breaking, and I haven’t noticed any unusual hair fall. I’m still on the fence, though, because it’s so difficult to detangle. The “after” is great for me. It’s getting there that’s difficult, and I don’t like spending ages on my hair. I want to wash, detangle, and let it air dry on its own.
Preet from Aldie, Va
Great product!! Loved it! Give a heavy hair look. happy with purchase.
Works like a charm!
Rylee from Portland, OR
I recently cut my waist-length hair off to about my jawline, and was seriously concerned about volume. My hair has always been super thin, so when I chopped it off, I was instantly on the hunt for a good voluming shampoo. I work at Ulta and despite my employee discount, I’m not a fan of dropping a ton of money on shampoos because I like to mix mine to get various benefits. OGX has worked great for me in the past and I love that it’s cruelty free and very affordable. While this shampoo in particular doesn’t smell the ~best~ it works AMAZING. My hair has gotten some SERIOUS volume since I’ve started using it and I’ve found myself using less volumizing styling products just because I don’t want my hair to look poofy! Can’t say I’ve had to deal with that before! Overall, I totally recommend and will plan on getting this again once I run out!

So far I love it
