Platinum Thickening Shampoo is a gentle cleanser that increases the diameter of the hair while eliminating build-up and excess oils that can weigh down styles. This shampoo gives the appearance of thick hair by adding body and fullness to styles for weightless lift and dimension.

Formulated without parabens, sulfates and sodium chloride.
Massage and lather into damp hair. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with Kenra Professional Platinum Thickening Conditioner.

      I can tell a difference

      By thin hair runs in the family

      from Janesville, WI

      Comments about Kenra Professional Platinum Thickening Shampoo:

      using both shampoo and conditioner I have noticed a difference in the look and feel of my hair!
      it definitely isn't an over night change, though.
      I normally have pretty greasy hair by day three and I've noticed a moderate change in how long it takes my hair to become 'not suitable for public'
      I will purchase again!

      Best Uses

      • Thicker Hair

      Comments about Kenra Professional Platinum Thickening Shampoo:

      Maybe I need to use it regularly to see results, but this did not make my hair appear thicker (which is what the product claims to do). Typically, I wash may hair on Day 1, by Day 2 it's flat and a little greasy, by Day 3 it is an oil slick. I used this shampoo yesterday, and my hair is flat today, but not oily - so that may be a nice perk of this product: A longer period between washes...but no extra volume.

      Comments about Kenra Professional Platinum Thickening Shampoo:

      I wanted to like this. I have super dry thin postpartum hair. It made my hair even more dry and because of that my hair started pulling out after rinsing the larger because I couldn't get my fingers through it. Will go back to hydration and keratin hair products.

                A:

                Platinum Thickening Shampoo is a gentle shampoo that will increase each hair strand making you look, feel and have thicker hair. I would also recommend the Platinum Thickening Conditioner.

                A:

                I would highly recommend the Platinum Thickening Shampoo/Conditioner, it increases the diameter of the hair shaft making your hair not only feel thicker but actually become thicker overtime.
