yesterday, i shared briefly my rave for a hair volumizing product. the story behind my acquisition of this product is actually accidental. remember that i raved about Reference Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner (REF 443)? it is from the same line but i got the Volume conditioner (REF 335) instead.
Reference 335 Volume Conditioner (S$38)
More pictures and review after the jump!
when i went to Beauty Language (the only store that sells Reference products in Singapore) nearest my place, i was actually looking for Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner (REF 443). the SA told me the conditioner is out of stock and i was totally saddened. (T_T) i even insisted she check out other brances, which she did, but there really isn't any stocks everywhere. she recommended the Volume Conditioner (REF 335) and i was very reluctant to get it. i decided to rebond my hair because i hate frizzy hair and adding volume may cause just that. but since i really love this product (the REF 443 shampoo/conditioner duo which i finished and repurchased!), i thought why not give it a try, finish it and then never buy it again if it proves to be a disaster. so i bought REF 335 conditioner together with REF 443 shampoo (if you buy separately, shampoo is priced at $36 and $38 for the conditioner. but if you buy both, you'll only have to pay $58 - savings of $16!)
i was so elated to be wrong! the pictures below will prove that indeed it gave me enough volume but did not give me poofy hair. some shots i even used hair irons and it still retained the volume - what an impressive product!

(other than spritzing hairspray on my bangs, i didn't do anything else with my hair)
(i even ironed my hair this time!)
*note: in all pictures, i just fan dried my hair - no blowdrying done.
isn't it just amazing? i love before and after shots lol.
i honestly did not expect a lot from shampoos and conditioners before aside from clean and nice-smelling hair but this just proves that salon products definitely have an edge! i am just so in love with Reference's hair products!
