9
Celebrity stylist Valery Joseph is known to be a great stylist, but just how great is his line of hair products? Well, I had the opportunity to try his Long by Valery Joseph Amplify Shampoo and Conditioner, and let me just say that I'm not disappointed! Read on for my full review:

Long by Valery Joseph Amplify Conditioner
Product information taken from the official Long by Valery Joseph web site:

"Strengthens and rebuilds hair fiber while smoothing and protecting; provides instant detangling and lightweight conditioning.

• Contains Smart Keratin
• Contains certified organic baobab oil, artichoke leaf extract, rhubarb extract, rice protein

• Superior performance means that a little product goes a long way
• Incredibly moisturizing and hydrating without weighing down the hair"

Design/Packaging

I found the design for the Amplify Shampoo and Conditioner (300 ml/10 oz) extremely visually appealing and unique. Instead of a rounded design, the bottles are rectangular and tall, which helps save room in my shower caddy. The entire top of the bottle is an easy-to-use flip open lid. It's simple and mess-free. Putting the two bottles side by side creates a cool image.

I think it's important to note that a little goes a long way with this product. I've used it for three weeks so far and think I can use it for at least a good few months or even half a year more.

Color/Texture

The Amplify Shampoo is a translucent mellow yellow with a silky smooth gel/cream texture and there is not too much of a lather.

The Amplify conditioner is a milky white color and it reminds me of yummy condensed milk, minus the stickiness of course. It feels very smooth in my hair!

Scent
There is a subtle floral but somewhat musky scent in both the Amplify Conditioner and Shampoo, almost like a really, really light cologne, but not gender-specific. It's not overpowering at all, and it makes washing my hair a nice experience.

Performance
After using both the Amplify Shampoo and Conditioner for three weeks, I've noticed my hair texture has definitely changed compared to my previous shampoo and conditioner. Before using these products, my hair would usually be very flat after I wash, condition, and blow dry. Now, right after I'm done with my routine, I notice that my hair has a lot more volume and fluff. It gives me the look and texture that I always want after a shower.

It doesn't feel like it gets smoother or softer right after I blow dry it though, and it did not seem to make my hair as detangled as I would like. My hands still got caught in my hair when I ran through my fingers through my hair. However, give it some time as you go on about your day and you'll notice how soft and silky it feels.

My hair also feels a lot stronger and looks better longer. I used to enjoy Day 1 hair the most, but after I started using this set, I started really liking my Day 2, and sometimes even Day 3 hair. Overall, my hair feels a lot more healthy and doesn't get as oily. I'd highly recommend the Amplify conditioner and shampoo if you're looking for some volume and texture!

Availability: Barneys, Amazon, Net-A-Porter, $36 (shampoo) & $38 (conditioner)
