Though I’ve dealt with my fair share of hair-related challenges, I’ve never been in need of extra thickness or volume. I have naturally thick hair and a whole lot of it so I’ve never been drawn to products that promise to lift up fine, flat hair. In fact, the first time my stylist used thinning shears on my hair when I was a teenager, I think I breathed an audible side of relief. Sometimes it feels like there’s just too much of it. First world problems, right? For exactly this reason I was a little bit hesitant to try the newest addition to the natural beauty world: ApotheCARE Essentials The Booster Shampoo and The Booster Conditioner. This duo is specifically formulated to add dynamic volume to fine, flat hair and I figured it would take my thick hair over the edge. I was surprisingly pleased with the results of this soon-to-be favorite in the natural beauty world, though and this is why:
ApotheCARE Essentials and Their Take on Natural Beauty
While many thickening hair products add volume and fullness to both thin and thick hair alike, they can often also add unnecessary extra weight. Most volumizing products I’ve tried have left me with product buildup at my roots and weighed down strands that lead to flat and heavy-looking roots: the exact opposite of what I’m aiming for. For this reason, I generally avoid thickening products and let my hair do its thing.
The weightless formulas of ApotheCARE Essentials The Booster Shampoo and ApotheCARE Essentials The Booster Conditioner are what makes these products different than their other volumizing and thickening counterparts. The shampoo is designed with a cleansing formula that removes impurities without draining your strands of natural oils. The results are weightless, thicker-looking hair with enhanced natural movement. The followup conditioner is designed to wrap around every strand of hair for impeccable fiber care. Both formulas are void of parabens, dyes and silicones, so this is a duo I can feel good about using.
To me, the best part about these products is that they’re designed to work with my natural texture and the natural oils my hair already produces. Rather than stripping my hair and then pumping my strands up with products that only end up weighing them down, this duo enhances what’s already there and even adds some extra thickness. As exhausting as it can sometimes be to care for and style thick hair, I do love my locks and have a hard time saying no to even extra volume and thickness. Especially when it comes in the form of a lightweight formula that’s good for my hair and me and also happens to smell delicious.
