As my ‘Quest for Beautiful Hair 2010’ continues I was so anxious to try Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair styling products.    If you read this blog regularly you know that I am nearly very obsessed with the Prime Plenish shampoo and conditioner and the Essence Absolue hair oil by Shu Uemura Art of Hair.  These products are a mainstay in my hair care and spendy, yes, but to me worth every penny.    Since I loved these products so much I thought I would have the same lovin feeling for the new voumizing mousse called Ample Angora.

The name is catchy, Ample for the volume and Angora for the softness.   It was described to me by my stylist via the rep for the line that it envelopes each hair strand to give each strand volume and yet it doesn’t make your hair dry and brittle like some volumizers can.  So I bought it.   It too is spendy – $33 for volumizer.  But the potential promise of volume in my fine, limp hair is always enticing to me.

Sadly, this product has done nothing for my hair.   Nary a voluminous hair on my head.   Yes, it does make my hair soft – maybe too soft, and yes, it smells lovely.   But for $33 and no volume, I’ve moved on to future hopefuls and past proven workers.
