This product seriously saved my life. I had thick, thick hair that I was so vain about. And then my hair fell out in giant clumps two summers ago--my beautiful hair, all gone except for thin wispy strands, just in time for my senior year of university. I started using this product and oh my gosh, the difference it made. You can see it from the pictures below! I went from thin wispy strands in September to fuller, voluminous hair by summer!
Most Helpful Critical Review Lots of mixed feelings
After a giving birth to my son my hair went through a thinning stage.My normal hair has always been dark, rich, and full, so it was obviously heart breaking to see all my thick beautiful hair falling away. I was embarrassed to put my hair up because you could see the thinning stops so I decided after reading different blogs stating that this line was the most cost effective and did what it said it would do. So i to give this line a try! Much to my surprise the thinning of slowed to an almost stop. I noticed my thinner spots filling back in and now have new growth around my forhead. I used the shampoo and conditioner on top of my regular pre/postnatal and a biotin supplement. The smell and packaging of these products are great! My husband and I both raved about the products! Until recently. I noticed after continued use that no matter how much you rinse and scrub my hair looks and feels greasy and dirty! So I decided to stop the use of the conditioner and only use the shampoo and it still had the same results! It's gross to feel like I need another shower and to have to use a completely different shampoo/conditioner just to get the first ones out! I can't style or blow dry my hair without it looking like a tub or grease that I hadn't washed in weeks! My husband noticed the same problem and suggested we buy another brand. Which left me thinking maybe it's called thick and full because it leaves your hair so full of residue that it gives the appearance of thicker hair when in actuality it's just built up product. So i decided to read more reviews and see if others experienced the same issue and I was not at all surprised to see I was right, that others felt the same way. So this leaves me feeling complexd. This line while helped my original problem has now created a new one with which untimely lead to discontinued use because I absolutely hate products that make me feel I need another shower after just finishing one. It's a big pet peeve of mine. Very busy over worked mom of 3 little ones does not have time to reshower and reshower her hair in hopes to look decent for the day. Hopefully your brand has a simple and clean line of products that would fit the bill. Because this one left me with mixed emotions and it was mostly negative.

jossy from riverside
i was a little sceptical about trying it because of all the bad reviews but i figured hey why not my hair was already falling out ALOT and i mean literal bunches of hair i was so depressed about it and decided to give it a try let me tell you i was so happy to see only a couple hairs go down the drain after i showered i also noticed it helped with the itching on my scalp i was so sick of using head and shoulders it made my hair stink! this one smells sweet like vanilla :) the only bad thing is it does make your hair dry so i use the ogx coconut serum for that , other than that i love how full my hair feels now and also how much it stopped falling out
new formula is a fail
Callie from Vancouver, WA
I used this shampoo religiously for two or three years now. I loved the smell and it gave good softness and volume to my thin, fine hair. I recently noticed more and more of my hair falling out in the shower and began to fear the worst, like a hormone issue, until I happened to read a review for this shampoo and everyone else was mentioning hair loss. Put it in the trash immediately and moved on to a new brand and the hair loss is slowly stopping but it's going to be a long journey to get it back to normal.
Turned to sticky gel
El from Ohio
This shampoo turned into gel after two weeks! It's super sticky now and can't be washed out of my hair. It was even hard to get off of my hands. The first few uses were good but i had to throw it away after only a few weeks
Pjs from Bend OR
I was using this shampoo and conditioner for a while because I have fine hair, and lack of volume, so it seemed like a great solution! I started using it for a few months and noticed the hair appeared to be thicker, and slightly more voluminous. However, shortly after, I got my hair colored and bought some salon quality shampoo and conditioner to protect the color and used that. Flash Forward, the salon hair product is gone and I switch back to this product. I didn't think anything of it at first, I noticed my hair didn't feel as soft but wasn't too bothered by it. A few days of using it and I'm noticing my hair will not stop getting greasy by the end of the day! With the salon product I could easily go two maybe three days without washing, with this product I can barely go one. It's irritating for me because I'm not sweating profusely or working out in any way. The only difference is this shampoo/conditioner. Also I've notice it's difficult to run my fingers through my hair, as well as to brush it, And I definitely have an increase of tangles and knots. Like others have mentioned, it must be product build up in the hair. The other let down is the conditioner formula is really thin and barely feels like it moisturizes my hair at all, somehow it feels more stripped of moisture after using it in the shower. honestly had it not been for my Salon product experience I might not have never noticed but I'm glad I did!
Really like it
CindyFish from Denver, CO
Have used for a long time. Definitely helps hair look and feel more full. Not a new formula. There was an additional Biotin kind that OGX launched called "Extra Strength" or something, but this Thick and Full Biotin one looks to still be the same.
Amelia from San Jose
I have thick wavy hair that is naturally very soft and manageable. This shampoo and conditioner made it impossible to brush through or do anything with, and it left a sticky residue. My hair was very dry but greasy at the roots, and my hair feels a lot thinner than when I started using it.
Alex from Louisiana
Got this because it seemed to have good ingredients. Biotin, collagen, vitamins, etc. Is sold as sulfate free but the third ingredient is a sulfate. I use this product like I've used others and after using this my scalp is always itching, I'm starting to get flakes, and normally I wash my hair 2 times a week but since using this, I can't be the day after washing my hair is insanely oily. Idk what the issue is with this company and their products but I've had the same problem when I used their keratin shampoo a few years ago.
I would not buy this product again
Dana from VA
After a week of use, my hair was frizzy, full of volume but dull and rough. The scent is okay, the viscosity is thin. My attempt to save some money poured through my hand and down the drain.
Made my hair fall out
Cs from Acton ,ca
This left a heavy film on my hair that made it feel nasty and unmanageable. My hair started falling out because of this. I threw this and the shampoo in the trash.
I would not buy this again.
Pam from MO
This shampoo and conditioner stripped my hair. My hair is naturally dry, anyway, and it took 3 months to restore it (let is grow out). I keep my hair short.
Hair felt like straw, tangled, knotted, awful
Cait from MA
I couldn't figure out why my hair felt so terrible the past few weeks. Usually, it is smooth and doesnt take much to detangle. I thought there was something wrong with me, until I realized I had recently started using this conditioner. I threw it out, used a Wella conditioner last night instead, and my hair is back to normal, although now I have breakage due to how much I had to comb through knots in my hair because of this conditioner. Skip this one people, save your hair
New formula is a NOPE
NunyaB from CO
Used the OGX Thick and Full Biotin & Collagen Shampoo for YEARS, and it made a huge difference to improve the thickness of my hair. But the ingredients are now different, and... just no. Not the same. In the history of cosmetics and hair products, I've only ever encountered 2 products that were truly improved when the ingredients changed. This was not one of those 2 products. I'm not looking forward to the annoyance of finding a new shampoo.
diana from usa
i like that this shampoo is sulfate free, i don't think it did anything for thickness, and the fragrance is a bit too strong but smells nice
Leah from Michigan
Love the smell, love the feel afterwards, less frizzy and easier to manage. LOVE THIS!!
Karen from Orlando Fl
Replay I feel different when only one use
Kelsey from Saint Paul, MN
Please use caution with this shampoo. I had used OGX brand products in the past (Argan Oil), and never had issues. However, about a week into using this shampoo and conditioner I noticed a large amount of hair fall and actually noticed several completely bald spots on my head. It made my hair extremely dry, tangled, and unmanageable. I know some people love it and have no issues, but I really wish I would have read more reviews before using. I'm now devastated and trying to grow my hair back.
Not for Fine Hair
Lana from Huntsville, AL
I was excited to try this da shampoo and conditioner because I have had good experiences with other products from this brand, however I am not impressed with this one. It made my hair feel very waxy/greasy and dried my ends out quite a bit. I have fine hair strands, but thick hair overall. It weighed my hair down rather than adding volume. Might work for other hair types but not mine particularly.
Wonderful Product !
Lizzie from West Palm Beach, FL
Ever since I discovered this product shampoo and conditioner in my local supermarket, that's all I ever use now. I leave a tad bit conditioner in my hair for manageability after I wash my hair. My hair is so soft and full looking. I've gotten many compliments how healthy my hair looks. Great Product !! Thanks
Don't recommend for curly hair
Lezabelle from Nyc
This conditioner is very thin and has barely any slip which made detangling my curly hair very hard, I gave it two stars because it did make my hair grow faster because of the biotin but it is very drying, as soon as I step out of the shower my hair feels silicone-e and it definitely made my hair frizzier.
THIS PRODUCT IS THE BEST!
Aliza f. from New york
This product is literally the best. My hair started falling a lot and I'm only 22 and I had no idea why. I started investing in all these hair shampoos for thinning hair like purador and Moroccan oil shampoo but they all made my hair fall in clumps. There was so much hair in the drain. My friend told me to buy the ogx biotin shampoo and conditioner and let me tell you, the results were amazing! After one use there was literally 2 strands of hair in the drain when I was done. And the best thing is you only need a drop. A little goes a long way. It definitely helped my itchy dry scalp and I can feel my hair getting thicker. YOU GUYS MUST TRY!
Makes hair fall out
bn47999 from Philadelphia, PA
Beware- this will make your hair fall out in CLUMPS in the shower. Will never use again!!!
Val from Waco, TX
I swear by OGX conditioner. Even when I treat my hair with heat every day, this helps keep the split ends away. It's always surprising to my hair stylist how I have almost no split ends.
Left better results than Nioxin
Hope from Texas
I used Nioxin for about 3 months. I did get compliments about my hair looking thicker but it left my hair extremely dry and frizzy. The first day after using this, I received the same compliments but also was told my hair looked healthier! Definitely using this instead, plus I'm saving a lot of money!
Ok but not fantastic
Disappointed from Phoenix az
Looking for a new shampoo. Not much better than what I used already.
Disappointed from Phoenix az
Was recommended by a friend but doesn't work for me. Needed to use another product to get the tangles out and moisturize
