So it’s officially Winter aka the nemesis of good looking hair. My lion’s mane has definitely taken a knock lately, what with the drop in temperature, lack of regular trims (I’m constantly on a quest for Rapunzel locks) and central heating so I’ve been needing something to revive my fine strands into something more lustrous.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been treating them to some label.m samples I was kindly sent, so now is the time to share my thoughts! The label.m Thickening Collection features Shampoo, Conditioner, Cream and Volume Foam as shown below…
Designed to enhance hair thickness, density,volume and abundance, the label.m Thickening collection is paraben free and helps protect against damage with the exclusive Enviroshield Complex and powerful antioxidants. Offering visible thickness along with a weightless yet lasting volume and lift from the first use. After lathering up and rinsing thoroughly, it definitely felt like my usually fine locks had ‘swelled’ somewhat and got a bit more oomph to them. The shampoo smells amazing (a really heady fragrance, which is lovely first thing in the morning) and the conditioner was lusciously creamy and left my hair feeling like silk,
Fast forward to the drying phase (my first cue is to spritz my hair with label.m Protein Spray then I added some of the Volume Foam) then I let my hair dry naturally until its about 50% dry. Then I blow dry in sections using a XLarge Hot Brush. I really liked the foam as I find mousse-style products can leave my hair feeling a bit tacky and crunchy to the touch but this had none of those unpleasant side effects - the finished result is nice and bouncy! The Thickening Cream is another option for styling. Just a small hazelnut size applied on damp hair gave it a nice injection of body whilst still feeling pleasantly soft and manageable.
The key ingredients in this collection are:
Framboise Stem Cells - the PRIMARY ingredient responsible for antioxidant nutrition & protection. These help stimulate hair follicles and cells to produce more collagen and elastin, and also protect the existing collagen from depletion, helping to enhance and maintain hair’s tensile strength and elasticity. The result is healthier hair which is better able to lock in hydration, thus producing the fullness and lifting result. This is in addition to enhanced levels of collagen and elasticity which contribute to the ‘thickening effect.’)
Kona Red Coffee Berry - ULTRA HYDRATING properties that plump up the hair shaft to create increased thickness. Found in the North and South Kona Districts of Hawaii, Kona Red Coffee Berries helps restore hydration and has collagen and elastin boosting properties which contribute to reinstating former volume as well as enhancing it. By strengthening and improving the quality of the hair, the Kona Red Coffee Berries help extend the duration of the phase in which hair grows, helping to produce hair that is richer in volume.
Qmilch Fiber - This is the PRIMARY ingredient responsible for volumising and thickening via hair building proteins. Rich in proteins and amino acids,Qmilch Fiber is known for imparting strength, thickness and shine, whilst also promoting hair growth by stimulating follicles. The casein proteins help seal the outer cuticle, securing the nourishing and protective ingredients inside the hair shaft where they are needed most.
