Review: Shielo Volumizing Hair Care

3 Feb

I am quite a picky girl when it comes to my hair products. I have four key factors that I look for when it comes to shampoo and conditioner: Scent, Ingredients, Price, Performance. I am going to be reviewing this Shielo Volumizing shampoo and  conditioner set based these points.

Scent: First and foremost, my hair products must appeal to my senses. The first thing I do when picking up a bottle of shampoo off the shelf is pop open the lid and take a big whiff. If it stinks, then it’s back on the shelf. It’s important that my hair smells amazing at all times lol! That being said, this Shielo shampoo and conditioner both smell out of this world. They have a clean, fresh scent that lasts on the hair for hours after you shower. They pass with an A+ in this category!

Ingredients: Let’s start with shampoo. The only ingredient I try my best to avoid in my shampoo is sulfates, SLS (sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate) and ALS (ammonium lauryl/laureth sulfate). Sulfates are surfactants or detergents that are used in shampoos to help clean the hair. But they are usually harsh and tend to strip the hair of it’s natural moisture. Unless I need to majorly clarify, I avoid this ingredient. Also, if you color your hair, you definitely need to stay away from sulfates. They will strip that expensive dye job right off your head quicker than you can say “touch up”. 

Unfortunately for me, this Shielo shampoo contains SLS right at the top of the ingredient list. However, the rest of the ingredients are pretty top notch. Both the Shielo shampoo and conditioner contain an awesome volumizing ingredient called nanofillaments. They penetrate into the hair shaft to increase thickness from the root. Biotin, soy protein, Hyaluronic acid, keratin amino acids and Açai Berry Extract are some other great ingredients in this stuff. I have to give them a C+ in this category.

Performance: One thing is for sure, and that is the fact that these two products perform superbly. I have very long, fine hair. It’s about medium in thickness. Because of my length, my hair easily becomes weighed down and flat. The Shielo shampoo and conditioner gave me noticeably more body and volume without the use of a blow dryer or any other products. I shower in the morning before work and let my hair air dry. I was definitely impressed at the overall thicker appearance of my hair when using these products. I give it an A in this category.

Price: The Shielo Volumizing Shampoo is priced at $28.49 and the Shielo Volumizing Conditioner is priced at $24.99 for 8 fl oz. Definitely on the pricey side. However, this product does live up to it’s claims as far as increasing hair volume. Because I base the value of my products on their performance, I will give them a B in this category.

If you’re interested in picking up this set, just head over to www.shielo.com.

    Which lathering agent do you prefer your shampoos and conditioners to have?

      Lately I’ve been into co-washing, which is basically using a cone-free conditioner similar to Wen as a cleansing agent. I still need to shampoo if I use products though, so I’ll use a drugstore shampoo with sulfosuccinates, such as Renpure or Organix. It’s not the best alternative to sulfates as it’s still synthetic, but I prefer shampoos that use sulfosuccinates versus sulfates. They are milder and produce less lather.
