Nanogen Hair Thickening Treatment Review*

A few months ago now I was contacted by the lovely people at Nanogen to see if I was interested in reviewing their hair thickening treatment shampoo and conditioner. Now, I'm a huge sceptic about if these kind of things really work.. I mean, how?! I literally still can't understand it to be honest with you but, like every other girl the aim is thicker, healthy hair. Of course I jumped at the opportunity! 

Let's start with the packaging. Well what can I say? You can see for yourself if you like it or not. Honestly, I don't dislike it but it is quite simple. I do think it really works for the product though! Next is the smell. The website states it has a 'beautifully intense berry fragrance'. I can't say I agree. The smell isn't off putting but it certainly doesn't smell like berrys.. It is one of the main things I noticed because it does have a strong smell but I'm not sure what of. It isn't very nice, lets put it that way! Price? Coming in at nearl£20 for the both, it is on the medium-pricey side. I defiantly wouldn't want to pay that much because I'm a self-confessed cheapskate, but if it works, people will pay! I guess it is just the same as a higher end drugstore product.

The consistency of the shampoo is slightly thin which is not a bad thing, just different to my usual shampoo! The conditioner is like any other.

I have used this shampoo and conditioner for around a month now (I must admit, I don't use them every day but I have used them A LOT, they are nearly run out!) and I have seen results. Shock horror! 
I'm not saying my hair has thickened by inches but it definitely feels slightly thicker and looks a lot healthier. Although I can't feel much myself, it must look good on the outside as I've genuinely had about 5 or 6 different people who didn't have a clue I was using this compliment the thickness of my hair which is amazing!! 

Overall, I probably wouldn't re-buy this myself purely because of the price, buuut I'm super happy to report it has genuinely worked. I'm really interested in trying the 'hair fibres' that Nanogen do because I think they look really good. Maybe they will be next on my list. SO to sum it up, if you're looking for a product that does thicken your hair, I would definitely give this a go. 

Will you be trying Nanogen products? 

*disclaimer- although I received this product for free for review purposes, all opinions were honest and my own

  2. Sounds like a good product over all! The price definitely puts me off though... Lee Stafford offer similar products that are £10 cheaper! xx

  3. My hair isn't particularly thin but you can always have thicker hair I suppose! It is quite pricey though, if I had really thin hair I'd give it a go :)
