Loreal’s Hair Thickening Solution

I was flipping through Vogue’s March issue today and found a double-sided ad by Loreal Paris featuring a new hair care line called Volume Filler.

First of all, the ad features 3 different thickening products:

  • Volume Filler Hair Thickening Shampoo (GET 20% OFF – $3.99 Limited Time Offer)
  • Volume Filler Hair Thickening Conditioner (GET 20% OFF – $3.99 Limited Time Offer)
  • Volume Filler Fiber Amplifying Concentrate  Treatment

This is an official Loreal commercial:

As the name indicates, these hair care products are designed to give thicker hair for women who have brittle or thin hair. Here is what the ad says:

volume filler shampoo review

Are thickening products a new trend?

“Our first haircare system to actually increase the diameter of hair:

An incredible transformation awaits fine thin hair. New volume filler with Filloxane penetrates instantly. So hair feels twice as full, twice as thick. A transformation that lasts”

It’s a really bold statement for the company to mention that it will give “Twice” thicker and fuller hair.  I haven’t personally tried their shampoo or conditioner yet. But reading many reviews from several websites, it looks like there are mixed reactions.

From a price stand point, they are on the lower side comparing to other hair thickening shampoos such as Nioxin.

Here is a list of ingredients for
L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo
in case you are interested:

Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Coco-betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Glycol Distearate, Hexylene Glycol, Aminopropyl Triethoxysilane, Fragrance, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Lactic Acid, Alcohol Denat., Polyquaternium- 30, Carbomer, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Hydroxide.

 

Have you used this shampoo? Do you think it really gives thicker hair as they claim? Please share your experience here.

  1. I tried the Volume Filler conditioner and the Volume Filler “densifying gelee” today and I must say I am super impressed. (I already had a new bottle of another brand’s volumizing shampoo, so used that instead of the Loreal Volume Filler shampoo).

    I have a lot of hair, shoulder length, but it’s very fine and prone to shedding. These products really did make my hair bouncy, full, and thick. It hardly even feels like my hair!

    I don’t know if it will have any effect on shedding, but as far as hair appearance/performance goes these products are great (at least upon initial trial). Only negative is the very strong fragrance of the densifying gelee – but I am willing to tolerate that if it continued to work this well.

      Hi Clair,
      Thank you for sharing your story. I am planning to try the Fiber Amplifying Concentrate serum to see how it works for my hair type (I also have thin hair). I think it’s similar to densifying geleee in terms of making hair look fuller.

      Finding a hair thickener/volumizing product can be tricky sometimes since it doesn’t work for everyone.

  2. Update to my earlier review: Although these products do increase my hair’s volume a lot, they are also very drying to my hair. Discontinued use after a few weeks due to dryness. :-(

  3. I tried it in hopes of thickening my hair back to the way it was before coloring it so many years ago…..and I had the same problem. I used to have very long and thick blonde hair past my back and cut it all off when I was 14 and have been dying it since (usually Auburn or burgundy). My hair felt very dry and I didn’t really notice any results, I’ve only used it once though because I’m afraid of it ruining my hair more.

    I personally like the new Garnier damage eraser products and noticed immediate results, my hair felt amazing and healthy. I also purchased the L’Oréal Thickening Serum with the shampoo but I’m afraid to try it and potentially ruin the progress I’ve made with my hair :( Any positive experiences with that product? Should I give it another try?

      Hi Christina,

      If you found something that has noticeable results, I think it’s safe to keep using it (there is no magical product that fixes everything).

      If you start to notice that product isn’t as effective, I would suggest the Nioxin Conditioner. Their conditioner is designed for people with thinning hair and they even have a specific line for color-treated hair. Every time I use it, it gives me a tingling minty sensation and I can see that it increases the volume of my hair. I also have the Garnier Volume Extend conditioner, but I don’t think it does a good job making my hair fuller.

      For the L’Oreal thickening serum, it looks like people have difference experience with it. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but it’s on my to-buy list. Keep us updated on your progress!

  4. Btw it’s been almost 10 years of damage to my hair so if anyone has any recommendations you’re ther products please let me know. I use ammonia free/natural oil based dyes now like Garnier Olia hair color and it has helped a great deal with my hair’s progress =]

    I know I should probably stop coloring it all together but if you like me, after so long you’re natural color turns into something horrible and after coloring my hair with reds all these years my natural hair would look like an ashy strawberry blonde…..so no thank you lol Olga has been doing great for me and any other suggestions would be appreciated!

  5. I tried the volume filler shampoo and conditioner and the fiber amplifying concentrate, I followed the directions on the bottles did what it said to do, which was after shampooing, use the conditioner with the fiber concentrate and leave it on for one to two minutes, I left it on for about ten minutes while I shaved my legs and pits and lounged a bit in the tub.

    After rinsing it off I expected my hair to be thicker like the products claim. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and I’m very disappointed in the products.

      Hi Anglea,
      Sorry that this product line didn’t work for you. Are there any other brands that have helped with your hair?

      Thanks for your honest feedback. If anyone else has similar or different results, please let us know.

  6. I’m 44 and my hair is thinning and i’ve been trying every shampoo and conditioner I can find to help me get back the volume and thickness to my hair and I don’t care if its a womans product this stuff works better than any other brand I have used! I don’t get people saying its not working lol they must be working for another team I will continue to use this shampoo and conditioner. Thanks
