The lovely people at Savvy Circle recently sent me this bottle of Nioxin Diaboost to try. The main purpose is to give advanced care for thinning hair. Now, my hair isn’t thinning, BUT it is fine. I struggle to boost my locks without weighing my hair down so anything offering to help I am willing to try.
Nioxin Diaboost has a rather formal and pharmaceutical name. It makes me think of actually having a medical problem, but you’ll be pleased to know it’s owned by Wella, as much more familiar friendly name!
This spray is supposed to increase the thickness of each existing hair strand making the hair fuller. The key with this product is that it isn’t an illusion. It doesn’t puff your hair up with warm air or anything like that; it genuinely increases the diameter of each hair strand making it fuller, stronger and still manageable.
So it sounds all good, but as we know the proof is in the pudding.
The application is super easy you spray on to wet OR dry hair (yes…. Dry hair!) Style and go. The product in the bottle looks almost get like which is why I thought it would make my hair look greasy, but nope, it’s a fine water like spray with a gorgeous fresh fragrance. It makes my hair smell like I’ve just left the hairdressers!
I can’t lie, this product genuinely works. I’ve tried dozens of volume enhancing mousses and shampoos in the past but rarely have I found something that works with no side effects. (Greasy hair, sticky strands, terrible fragrance etc.).
Nioxin Diaboost lifts my hair from the root, I can tell because the front of my hair doesn’t just full straight over my face, it sort of lifts a little and then falls over my face. I’m sure you know what I mean! It also makes my hair feel soft and keeps it fresh. No GREASYNESS!!!!! Thanks goodness!
It even caught my colleagues’ attention when she asked if I had changed my hair… I almost thought she was kidding but she had NO idea I was using this thickening treatment. I asked her why and her exacts words were ‘I don’t know, it just looks… bouncy!’ Bouncy? Woohoo! Bingo! Just what I want to hear.
The only downside with the product at the moment is that the spray is quite ‘fierce’ so the liquid doesn’t spread as evenly as I would like. It’s also on the pricey side ranging from £25.00 – £35.00 but honestly speaking the products last for ages. Longer than any mousse I’ve tried. It smells great and has given my hair more bounce then anything has been able to before.
