I was anxious to try the Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Conditioner ($23 in the shop), which is described as a thickening and volumizing conditioner for fine to limp hair. With collagen, ginseng root, and biotin — all known for their hair-restoring qualities — I didn't see how I could lose.

I'm almost 65 and live in the frozen north, where I'm subjected daily to frigid temperatures, hat hair and dry indoor conditions. I also have very hard water, so my hair always seems dry and hasn't had a shine since the 90s. It has a natural wave and has always been baby fine and somewhat unruly.

The first thing I noticed was the fragrance. It smells wonderful, like a summer morning. The fragrance isn't overbearing, and although I don't notice it, the other day someone close told me my hair smelled nice. Just a little goes a long way. It feels light and rinses out easily.

After the first use, my hair felt clean and had just a little more volume than usual. I air dried it as I usually do and went about my day. A few hours later, walking past a mirror, I was delighted to see that my hair had SHINE! I was impressed. My natural wave also had more oomph, and my hair felt a little fuller.

I've used it three to four times a week since, and I couldn't be more pleased. My hair feels and looks fuller, stronger and healthier. Blossom & Bloom Volumizing Conditioner contains NO parabens, silicones or phthalates, but it does contain several nourishing oils, like rosehip fruit oil, argan oil, ginger root oil, grapefruit peel oil, and orange oil with other organic ingredients.

I give this conditioner a thumbs up. My hair is stronger, fuller, healthier, and it has SHINE. At first, the $23 price seemed just a little high, but after a month, I've barely used a quarter of the bottle. The longer it lasts, the better the value.
