Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Ditch The Dirt Volume Shampoo *Review*

Friday, 1 July 2011

So i recently ran out of my Umberto Giannini Backcomb in a Bottle so skipped along to Boots to repurchase. While there i spied UG products on offer for 2 for £7 and wasn't quite sure what else to try. I must've spent about 10 minutes staring aimlessly at the products and decided to opt for their Ditch The Dirt Volume Shampoo.

I'm a total sucker for adverts, believing the blurbs on backs of the bottle and with Ditch The Dirt promising to 'strengthen even bleached 'within an inch of its life' hair with super nourishing repair ingredients' i was excited to give this a whirl.

As with all of the Glam Hair range by Umberto Giannini the packaging is spot on. A sleek black bottle with a silver mirrored cap and bold silver labels.

The real surprise came when i first went to use the shampoo, i unscrewed the cap and tipped some of the product into my hand - a gorgeous shimmery shampoo came out!! :) and it smelt absolutely divine (exactly like Backcomb in a Bottle which i love!)

shimmer shimmer! 

One thing i have found with this product is that you need a lot of it for it to lather nicely. I've used it 3 times so far and am already halfway through the bottle and on the last occasion it just wouldn't lather up so i had to add some other shampoo to the mix :(

It does add a fair amount of volume to my hair and teamed with my daily routine of Backcomb In A Bottle, backcombing and some Schwarzkopf Got2B Powderful (for texture) i pretty much have the boho look down :)

Have you tried Ditch The Dirt Volume Shampoo? What other volume shampoo's should i try?
