A couple of weeks ago I had my first hair cut in about a year. Yeah, I know. Pretty bad. Until then, my hair was very split and dry, however, my friend introduced me to this, Suigo, and their amazing products.
I wish I’d done some before and after shots from when I first tested it out. My locks went from a frazzled mess to sleek and shiny and even though I know it is impossible, it felt as if my split ends had sealed up and healed themselves. What can I say? *~*~*~*Magic happens*~*~*~
Now my hair is in much better condition but it hasn’t stopped me from using Suigo. The range I am using is designed to thicken and, trust me, I need all the help I can get in that department. I’d been planning to do this review for the past 10 or so days, so I swapped over to a generic shampoo and no conditioner for a few washes. Here are some before and after pics from last night and this morning. Last night I took my hair out of a loose bun and bent forward. So dry it was that it stayed in its position, standing up in the air. Normally it would slip down and be silky straight. This morning, after washing, conditioning and straightening, it was sleek and smooth and with no frizz in sight.
Mainly I’ve been trying out the Ultimate Control Shampoo and Conditioner, but I also gave the Aboslute Keratin Volumizer Treatment a go. I must admit I found the treatment to be way too heavy on my hair. It’s not something I would use again in a hurry. While it did indeed make it look and feel thicker, I felt there was just a little too much residue for my liking and I have a ritual of products I like to apply for styling, so it sort of took over their real estate.
On the other hand, my friend Sara loves the treatment so maybe it’s just not for everyone. My tip – if you have very fine hair like me, stay away from the treatment or perhaps apply it to really wet hair (as opposed to towel-dried) and wash it out thoroughly (as opposed to rinsing) so it dilutes more than it would per the instructions. The shampoo is thickening enough for me – more so than any other thickening shampoo I’ve tried (and I’ve been trying them all since I was a teenager) – so I don’t think I need the treatment.
Suigo’s mission is to ‘create high-performance, natural hair care that is powered by nature and proven by science.‘ They use ‘potent plants, organic ingredients and natural essential oils‘ and this is evident from the smell. The fragrance is beautiful, relaxing and lasting. I can still smell it in my hair even a few days after washing. The shampoo is oily in appearance and looks like honey mixed slightly with cream. You don’t need much – in fact I would encourage you to not use much – as a little bit goes a long way.
As well as shampoo, conditioner and treatment for fine hair, Suigo also aims to tackle dryness and scalp issues, such as dandruff. They also have a range of styling products and soap – how cool is this black bamboo charcoal one? (It’s for sloughing away dead skin, cleaning the pores and aiding with acne).
Suigo products are mid-range in terms of price. They’re not run-of-the-mill supermarket variety, so you pay accordingly. However, they’re also not the most expensive on the market and I’ve paid a lot more for thickening shampoos that have simply not worked. A 260mL bottle of Suigo shampoo, for example, is $22.50 and the soaps are just $3.49.
Have a look at their website for more product and price ideas. I’d highly recommend switching your shampoo and conditioning routine over to Suigo.
