Back in the day I always used to use the Nivea Diamond Gloss shampoo. I absolutely loved the smell of it and it felt really nice in my hair. When I came across a new version of that shampoo I just knew I had to give it a try. Would this be just as nice as the one I used to use back in the day, or would this be a fail? Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out whether or not this version is worth it or not, make sure you continue reading!
The Nivea Diamond Gloss & Volume shampoo comes in a clear bottle which is what makes it stand out along the other Nivea shampoo’s which all come in coloured bottles. Aside from that the packaging is pretty basic and I like that. It’s nothing too special but it’s not too boring or too cheap looking either. I really like it.
Like most of you know there are lots of different Nivea shampoo’s available for every hair type in the world. I really wanted to try this one because of the fact that it gives both volume and a glossy, shiny look to the hair. I have very thin and straight hair, so that’s pretty much what I need.
The Nivea Diamond Gloss & Volume shampoo claims to hydrate your hair without weighing it down, it’s supposed to add lots of volume and add shine to the hair. And to top that all off this shampoo is also free of silicones. Like most of you know I don’t use silicones in my hair, so I was really happy to see that this shampoo doesn’t contain any.
So let’s start with discussing the claims. I’ll start off with saying that in general, Nivea isn’t lying. My hair tends to get pretty greasy pretty quickly and this shampoo is perfect for that. That because it makes your hair feel really clean. It does hydrate the hair but it doesn’t make my hair feel greasy or heavy like other shampoo’s do.
It also adds quite a bit of volume. Thanks to that volume my hair isn’t as heavy and therefore less sleek and therefore it won’t get as greasy as quickly. I don’t really know why that works, but it does. So quick tip for everyone who struggles with greasy hair: use volumising products!
The shine part isn’t a complete bust either. Because of the volume my hair isn’t as glossy and shiny as it would be if I used a more hydrating shampoo, but my hair definitely has more shine to it after using this shampoo than it would if I would’ve used something else that claims to be volumising. So in general, this shampoo is pretty great.
I always shower and wash my hair at night, so when I wake up in the morning that’s the moment when I can see the actual results. And I have to say I like it. My hair looks healthier, full of volume and especially very fresh. It makes my hair feel very light and that’s a really great feeling, especially during the summer time!
So, overall I’m not disappointed by this shampoo at all. It’s not as big of a favourite as the L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay shampoo is, but it’s a close second. I really like using this when I feel like my hair is in desperate need of volume and it’s also great to use when you feel like your hair is very greasy. So in conclusion: this Nivea Diamond Gloss & Volume shampoo is pretty amazing. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who’s on the hunt for a shampoo that will provide both volume as well as shine.
The Nivea Diamond Gloss & Volume Shampoo is available at the drugstore for €1,95.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know which shampoo is your current favourite!
