Fekkai Full Blown Volume Conditioner

Infused with citrus extract and ginseng and scented with mint and fruit, Fekkai’s volumizing conditioner is meant to give body to limp or fine hair. According to one loyal fan, it delivers: “No matter how many conditioners I try, I eventually come back to this one and it leaves my hair looking glossy and fuller without being weighed down.”

Pantene Pro-v Sheer Volume Conditioner

We love a good drugstore steal, and this one is no exception. Wrapping every strand with Pro-V nourishment, this conditioner delivers noticeable softness while providing the type of lift you normally only see in hair commercials. All that for less than the price of a salad from that fancy health-food store you love.

living proof conditioner

Living Proof Full Conditioner

This lightweight conditioner adds softness and shine while helping flat hair to look and feel fuller. It also helps keep hair cleaner for longer by repelling dirt and oil. As one reviewer put it, “I don't know what I would do if they discontinued this product.”

Christophe Robin Volumizing Conditioner

OK, we know this one’s a bit of a splurge, but we have it on good authority it’s the real deal. Christophe Robin’s formula is enriched with rose water and fortifying baobab extract to cleanse, preserve color and restore volume. It has a pretty heavy rose aroma and will leave your bathroom smelling heavenly, but heads up if strong fragrances aren’t your thing.
