Review: Time Bomb Larger Than Life Shampoo and Conditioner

Review by Ceri Wheeldon

Time Bomb Larger than Life shampoo

Who doesn’t want thicker, fuller looking hair? I think that hair should quite literally be your crowning glory at any age…but midlife hormonal changes can play havoc with hair. I am always on the lookout for products that can restore lustre and volume – in fact I often buy professional grade hair products from my hairdresser  to try at home.

I was a  fan of Lulu’s Operation Glam products, so was keen to try the new Time Bomb haircare range that are replacing them. I was n’t disappointed. One of the problems I have found with a lot of ‘thickening’ shampoos is that although  they add volume, they also add weight , which tend to make my hair flatter (my hair is long, well below my shoulders).   I found the Time Bomb Larger Than Life shampoo and conditioner added the volume, while also adding bounce. My hair felt thicker and fuller and had more movement. I had body at the roots – in fact I normally use heated hair rollers at the crown after blow drying  to add some lift, but didn’t actually need to.  A  friend I met for lunch asked if I had just been to the hairdresser. I found my hair easier to manage – and it still looked good the following day – my hair is so unruly I go through spells where I have to wash it daily just to control it , so an extra day of looking relatively human is a bonus!

The products are quite rich, so you only need to use a small amount.  They are sulphate free, making them gentler than most traditional shampoos.

According to the brand, the range contains a unique tri-peptide complex that helps to anchor the hair at the root, giving it strength and body.

I would definitely recommend to friends.

The TIME BOMB Larger-Than-Life Shampoo 250 ml and TIME BOMB Larger-Than-Life Conditioner 250 ml each cost £16.50 .
