I have been curious to try OGX products for as long as I can remember. The cute colourful bottles lining the drugstore shelves would wink at me as I walked by, inviting me to give them a try, but alas I never did… until now! I recently had the opportunity to discover the newest additions to the OGX collection – the Body + Bamboo Fiber-Full Collection, Niacin3 & Caffeine Collection and the O2 Collection. Before I dive into the details of each collection, here are a few fun facts you should know about the brand.
OGX is created for all of us who want to make better choices when choosing beauty products. Their high-quality formulas contain exotic active ingredients, are paraben-free and sulfate-free, and aren’t tested on animals. Plus, the cute little bottles are eco-friendly and made from recycled post-consumer resin. Plus, all their products are gentle enough to use on colour-treated hair. Now those are values that I can proudly support.
OGX Strength & Body + Bamboo Fiber-Full Collection
If you have fine or limp hair, this is the collection for you. This new collection plumps your hair with a fortifying blend of bamboo fibers and soy protein. What in the heck are bamboo fibers you ask? Bamboo fibers help to create friction between hair strands which is what helps to create that thick, voluminous, va va voom hair. The formula is also great if your hair is fragile since it helps to create more elasticity, prevent breakage and fortify your strands. The scent is spicy, yet light and lasts quite a while in your hair. The collection includes the shampoo, conditioner, thickening root booster and thickening fiber cream (which I did not try).
OGX Fight Fallout + Niacin3 & Caffeine
Stress, poor nutrition, genetics – there are a million reasons why we lose our hair. Until recently, the only option for those suffering from hair loss was to use a clinical product to help reduce fallout. This collection by OGX has introduced an alternate solution. The niacin3 and caffeine collection focuses on the health of your scalp to help prevent fallout due to breakage and ultimately promote hair growth. The formula contains alpha hydroxy acid, niacin, caffeine and natural DHT blockers. This combination is what helps to exfoliate the scalp, remove impurities, stimulate blood circulation, which all help to promote healthy growth of hair. The scent is minty and fresh, and probably my favourite of the bunch. The collection includes a shampoo, conditioner and root stimulator spray, which you spray on the roots of towel-dried hair and massage in to help stimulation. I’ve been using this collection since I got it and have noticed a slight difference in the amount of hair I’m losing.
OGX Gravity-Defying & Hydration + O2 Collection
The collection to breathe life back into your hair! This collection brings a burst of hydration to your hair without weighing it down. The light formula is infused with oxygen technology, which delivers oxygen to your hair and give it that weightless movement, and cloudberry oil, known to deliver vitamins A, C, E, B, calcium, magnesium and anti-oxidants to your strands. This light and fresh-scented cocktail helps to restore damaged hair by feeding it these nutrients and bring back that bounce in your hair. The collection includes the shampoo, conditioner and lifting oil & tonic spray. As thick as my hair is, I couldn’t help but notice the super clean feeling of my hair after using the shampoo and conditioner, almost like the effect of a clarifying shampoo, and the lifting oil & tonic spray definitely gave my hair that extra boost. My hair felt hydrated and not the least bit weighed down, not even after a few days.
These OGX Collection are just the latest additions to the extensive range of wonderful-smelling products. They are available between $9.99 – $10.99 CAD each at most drugstores.
