Value Rating: 7/10



The Sukin Volumising Shampoo is lightweight and non-greasy with a gentle cleansing action. It requires quite a lot of the product to thoroughly cleanse the hair, but leaves it feeling clean and oil free for the day. Like most shampoos though, without a conditioner, it can leave your hair feeling a little dry. The lightweight weight formula can help you to build and maintain volume when styling after washing. It also makes your hair a good canvas for styling and using other styling products. 

I quite liked using this shampoo, because it was gentle and didn’t feel like it was over washing my hair. Despite it being a 500ml bottle though, it did run out faster than usual, because you need to use more per use, since the product felt quite thin and not very concentrated. It was fine for me with shorter hair, however, my girlfriend had to use quite a lot to get good coverage and lather. The application is quite pleasant, however, it can take some time to get used to because unlike many other products, it doesn’t foam and lather very much so it doesn’t always feel like it’s working until you wash it out. 

Summary of Performance


Price Range

Mid Range $$

Suited for

Fine and Limp hair

Ease of Use

The shampoo applies easily and washes out quickly

Amount of product used per application

Quite a lot of the shampoo is required to get a good lather and thoroughly cleanse the hair.

Product Consistency

Fairly thin and runny.


A nice subtle tropical scent that comes from the Pineapple, Mango & Papaya extract. It smells quite natural compared to many other hair products, but doesn’t have a strong scent.

Product strength

Low-Medium – It doesn’t have a harsh cleansing strength, so it might take multiple washes to wash out strong styling products or oils.

Product performance

When used daily the shampoo leaves the hair feeling clean and soft for the day. Second day hair (or longer) can still be prone to greasiness and requires more shampoo to clean. It’s lightweight formula leaves the hair feeling quite full and lightweight. Despite the packaging it doesn’t have much of a volumising boosting or thickening effect, other than it doesn’t weigh down the hair.

Health benefits

The shampoo is naturally derived from natural ingredients which keep the hair and scalp feeling healthy. It maintains hair health reasonably well, but I didn’t feel any improvements in hair health.

Where to buy

Available on Amazon:

Would I buy again?

Probably Not. It is a nice smelling shampoo that can leave the hair feeling nice, but, so are many others. I think for the size, price, and amount of product required to clean your hair, it does feel quite expensive for gentle and subtle results. If I saw it on a good sale I might be tempted, but for full price I think there are other products that offer better value. 



If you’re on the hunt for a good quality shampoo and conditioner, at the moment my standing favourite is Nioxin System 1. Despite all the other products I try, I keep finding myself comparing and coming back to Nioxin.

Styling Products

If you’re trying to find products to help you manage and style your fine or limp hair, then you might want to check out a thickening tonic. They are great for plumping, mattifying, and boosting structure and volume in fine and limp hair, I use it almost every time I style my hair. Here are two of my favourites:
