My hair isn’t super thin, but it’s not exactly thick either, so whenever I stumble across products that promise to help make it look thicker, I instantly want to try them. That’s how I discovered Ookisa. Their Hair Thickening Systéme combines modern technology with the knowledge that’s been gained from hundreds of years of Japanese beauty rituals. Every Ookisa product contains something called the Hana-Senzai Energy Blend, which is a mixture of Eastern botanical extracts that’s used to create beautiful, healthy hair. It includes:
- Kaou (White Peony Tea) to soothe and condition
- Yuzu (Japanese Citrus) to promote brilliance and radiance
- Tsubaki (Camellia Oil) which helps increase luminosity and volume
- Niiro Cha (Rooibos Red Tea) to enhance circulation
- Yuri (Water Lily) to calm and moisturize the scalp
The Hair Thickening Systéme contains four topical products: Nighttime Follicle Renewing Serum, Fortifying Shampoo, Replenishing Conditioner, and Instant Volumizing Souffle. I tested out the shampoo and conditioner and I was really pleased with the results. I was slightly apprehensive when I opened the containers because I was scared that the products were going to smell harsh or more intense than I’d like, but I was very pleasantly surprised. They’re lightly scented and smell fresh and clean, definitely a smell that I would like to linger in my hair. One of the things that the shampoo promises to do is get rid of all the buildup and unhealthy substances that clog hair follicles and keep your hair from looking as thick as it could. This was my favorite part of the formula because my hair feels amazingly clean when I use this shampoo. It’s the kind of thing that you don’t notice until you finally see your hair without all the buildup and then all you can do it stare at it in the mirror and say, “Yes! This is what my hair is supposed to look like!”
The conditioner works very well too – it left my hair soft and tangle-free and it’s safe to use on colored hair because it prevents fading, which is always a bonus. All Ookisa products are also paraben-free, colorant-free, hormone-free, sulfate-free and cruelty-free, so you’re not putting any harsh chemicals on your body. (It’s kind of funny how I have no problem eating food that’s technically bad for me, but I’m kind of obsessive about keeping it out of my shower).
