Review–Osmo Extreme Volume Thickening Creme

Hey hey!

I hope your having a good week ladies, I feel like I’ve definitely been living for the weekend these past few weeks! Being back working 9-5 is not all it’s cracked up to be…

Anyway on to the beauty! There’s a few bits I’ve been using that are on their way out so I wanted to get proper reviews done before they pop their clogs and this is numero uno right here!



I’ve been using this tube of goodness for about a year now and it’s almost gone. My thin, soft-as-hell-as-soon-as-you-wash-it-until-it-becomes-a-birds-nest hair needs a bit of discipline in the form of my hair dryer and some thickening product to make it look like I actually, um, have some. I’ve tried a myriad of thickening and volumising products and have formed a few favourites, of which this is one.

The packaging is great, everyone loves tubes and this is easy to dispense without it going everywhere. Though sold as a creme I would say this has a bit of gel about it too, it’s a little sticky on the hands but not in the hair and you don’t need a lot to create a whole mother load of volume!


This is probably about half to two thirds as much as I’d use on my whole head. I rub it between my hands then ruffle it about at the roots of towel dried hair before blow drying upside down and using a round brush if I can be arsed. It adds volume and texture so while you can feel there is something in your hair it is weightless and doesn’t make hair lank and greasy the next day. In my hair this feels very similar to the TIGI Catwalk Root Boost Spray.

All in all, I really like this. When washed my hair is so soft you can’t do anything with it, this adds long-lasting volume and ‘grit’ so I can actually style it! I don’t feel like I need to wash my hair the next day and it’s pretty purse friendly too! Repurchase fo sho.

I got this from Feel Unique where it is currently £7.40 but I have also seen Osmo stocked at Sally’s if you’d like to peruse in store.

Do you have any thickening products you’d recommend? I’m all ears!
