This shampoo and conditioner give me the best blowout EVER
I have a soft spot for indie brands, and I’m always one to try products I may not have heard of before. I’m discovered quite a few gems that have become “regulars” in my rotation over the years, and the latest to be added to that list is OMM Collection.
I wouldn’t ordinarily opt for a “thickening” shampoo or conditioner since I usually try to minimize my hair’s volume, but when an old PR friend sent me OMM’s Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, I figured I didn’t have anything to lose. Infused with apple stem cell extracts, these products are designed to protect hair follicles from the effects of aging, stimulate the scalp for healthy hair growth and reinforce each and every hair shaft.
As to be expected with a sulfate-free shampoo, there’s little to no suds—but I’ve found that a double-shampoo helps wash away every last trace of oil and dry shampoo despite the lack of lather. The conditioner glides on beautifully and provides instant detangling (it’s SO easy to comb through), and it easily rinses away to leave my hair smooth and feeling healthier than ever.
The real test came when I blow-dried my hair after using these products for the first time. Some shampoos and conditioners leave my hair looking like a giant fluff ball that requires a straightening iron to smooth things over—but not these. I don’t even need to subject my hair to the extra heat when I use the OMM Collection products and I can almost hear my hair whisper thank you when I wrap up my styling routine.
As if this weren’t good enough, I also find my hair stays smooth and soft without getting greasy by the next day (or the day after). OMM Collection is proof that the best of beauty isn’t necessarily in every magazine, featured on your favorite website or on the shelves of Sephora—and that taking a chance on an under-the-radar brand can really pay off.
