Shampoo and Conditioner for Extreme Hair Volume: Amazonia Preciosa Cupuacu by Surya Brasil

Your Tonic online body care shop has kindly provided me with a few Surya Brasil products. I have already written about Surya's body scrub and their shaving gel, the high end products with an amazing smell and great texture, and today I would like to review their Amazonia Preciosa Cupuacu shampoo and conditioner for normal and straight hair.

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Shampoo & Conditioner Review
Amazonia Preciosa Shampoo & Conditioner
Cupuacu by Surya Brasil
If you love big hair, you are going to love Surya Brasil's range of hair products. Their shampoo and conditioner turns my locks into big thick tresses that I love. The first time I used the products I got a bit annoyed as they do not seem to form any foam. It feels like you could put the whole bottle on your hair and the hair would still be dirty. The conditioner also seems to disappear into your hair without doing anything. However, don't be fooled, you don't need to use up the whole bottle of Surya's shampoo nor conditioner just for one wash. You need only a little bit and although hair doesn't seem to get foamy from the shampoo or smooth and glossy from the conditioner, it doesn't mean that the products are not doing anything. Only a little bit will wash your hair well and give it that extreme volume that most of us so crave.

Amazonia Preciosa Cupuacu shampoo and conditioner are sold as products for normal and straight hair, but I find the products great for my gentle waves too as long as I don't brush my hair after wash. The shampoo reminds me of John Frieda's range for extreme volume, but I think that Surya has the edge. The hair feels like it has been powdered to volumize it, so I guess that some people may not like the way the hair feels after wash, but that is what gives your hair that extreme mostly desired volume.

Other great features of Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa shampoo and conditioner:

  • Hair shine and anti-frizz effect
  • Free of mineral oil, silicone and sulfates
  • Protects hair from the effects of wind, pollution and use of hairdryer.
  • Enhances thickness
  • Increases hair volume and flexibility  
  • No animal testing
  • No animal ingredients
  • Natural and organic

Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa shampoo is sold for £19.99 on YourTonic and the conditioner is also sold for £19.99.
