Our powerhouse thickening shampoo uses a market-leading collagen complex formula to tackle thin, flat hair while deeply and gently cleansing.
Soluble collagen wraps the hair cuticle, gently and powerfully cleansing the hair to leave it feeling fresh, clean, and cared for. Alongside this, collagen amino acids work their way deep into the cortex of the hair, where they boost volume and thickness from within.
Our powerhouse shampoo formula also includes wheat protein - which helps to increase hair’s body and volume - and plant protein to support with strengthening the hair, working alongside our groundbreaking collagen technology.
Absolute Collagen’s daily collagen drink, thickening shampoo, and thickening conditioner system are the powerhouse trio your hair will love. One sachet a day of Absolute Collagen counters natural loss of of collagen that occurs as we age, providing your hair with all the essential amino acids it needs in order to thrive.
Did you know, hair cells are the second thirstiest cell in the body, but one of the least essential? In practical terms, this means a decline of collagen and lack of protein will often affect hair first, leading to unwanted symptoms like thinning and brittleness.
Our groundbreaking collagen complex formula provides deep nourishment to the hair’s internal cortex - for greater strength and volume - as well as smoothing and hydrating the external cuticle, for hair as full of life as you are! Enjoy stronger, thicker, more volumised hair with a lightweight flourish, deeply cleansed and looking and feeling fresh.
About Absolute Collagen’s Thickening Shampoo +-
Our Absoluters shared their hair concerns - thin, fine hair that’s often weighed down by existing thickening products - and we created our collagen complex formula shampoo to tackle these hair issues. Our shampoo is 97% natural, paraben free and not tested on animals, and has been expertly formulated specifically to boost hair thickness and volume without weighing your hair down or clogging the hair with built-up, weighty product.
Absolute Collagen’s thickening shampoo was created in partnership with leading UK hair experts and scientists, including Eva Proudman MIT IAT, the Chairman of the Institute of Trichologists. Eva also carried out the clinical trials that prove that everyday use of our thickening shampoo can boost hair thickness by up to 20% in just 8 weeks when used alongside our thickening conditioner.
What is it?
Absolute Collagen’s thickening shampoo and conditioner is the UK’s first collagen complex formulation shampoo and conditioner. It works to nourish, thicken, and volumise thinning hair, while maintaining that all-important lightness.
It works perfectly alongside our daily collagen supplement. The supplement supports your hair with the protein and essential amino acids it needs to grow, then the shampoo and conditioner strengthens and nourishes it inside and out.
The shampoo is 97% natural, while the conditioner is 96% natural. Both products are paraben free, and cruelty free and have been clinically proven by the UK’s top hair experts (see ‘Science’ section above).
Why have we created it?
As the original collagen specialists, we know collagen depletion significantly impacts hair as we age. By the age of 50, we’ve lost around half of our natural collagen, causing dry, flat, and thin hair. There are several thickening hair products out there, but they use heavy formulations that build up and weigh hair down, leaving it limp and flat.
Our Absoluters asked us for a product to tackle their thin, fine hair concerns - and we’ve delivered!
We’ve partnered with the UK’s leading hair specialists, including top trichologist Eva Proudman MIT IAT, to develop a brand new collagen haircare range that delivers powerful strength, shine and volume to ageing hair without weighing it down! It’s just the latest step in our mission to help Absoluters feel their absolute best.
What does it do?
Just a small amount of shampoo and conditioner delivers powerful results. Hair is visibly thicker and more volumised.
It tackles thin, fine hair with the power of our unique collagen complex formula, increasing strength, volume, gloss and shine. It also reduces breakage and hair shedding.
Shoulder length hair, for example, is often around 3-4 years old, and in that time it faces a lot of everyday environmental stress. Add in the impact of heat and colour treatments and it’s no surprise your tresses may be looking - and feeling - a little worse for wear.
Our groundbreaking new formula tackles these problems head on, nourishing and strengthening hair inside while wrapping the hair cuticle to protect it externally, keeping it nourished and volumised, whatever the world throws at it.
Who is it for?
Anyone with thin, fine hair who would like to increase their hair thickness and volume. It’s suitable for all hair types and can be used on bleached and dyed hair alike. Consumer testing shows that coloured hair doesn’t fade even after 12 weeks of use, so Absoluters can be confident their colour won’t be affected by our products.
As it contains collagen, the shampoo and conditioner are not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.
How much should I use?
You only need to use a small amount of the shampoo and conditioner as they are powerful and effective - we recommend using an amount that’s roughly the size of a 10p coin.
What type of collagen is in these products?
The collagen in our shampoo and conditioner is a mixture of both bovine and marine. This means the products are not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
Can I recycle the bottle?
Yes, it is 100% recyclable.
Can I use the shampoo without the conditioner?
Yes, you can, however we recommend you use the shampoo and conditioner together as they work in conjunction with each other and have been expertly and specifically formulated to work together.
How frequently should I wash my hair?
We recommend you wash your hair a minimum of 5 times a week for the optimum results, however we understand this isn’t suitable for all lifestyles. Every other day will also work well, but it may take longer to see results.
