Dessange VoxBox Review

Hello!! I know it's been a while, but today I have a review for you all. I received the Dessange VoxBox from Influenster. There were actually 2 different collections available, the Oleo Miracle Replenishing and the California Blonde. I received the Oleo Miracle collection.

Dessange VoxBox

I don't know about you, but when I see the claims that some products make, I get a little skeptical. "Salon quality" for one, and any product adding "Paris" to the name always makes me wonder about the validity. Luckily for me, I have a friend in France and I asked her about Dessange. She confirmed that it's a well known, quality product. Step 1 of eliminating my skepticism complete!

Another thing I've been leery of is putting oils in my hair. How can an oil possibly NOT leave my hair looking greasy or building up residue? Actually, I don't wash my hair every day, so I was especially worried about needing to because of the oil. Well, I had no such problems! Consider this skeptic won over.

2 Days Later - No Build-Up

As a matter of fact, everyone in my household has been using the oil. I used it for my daughter's hair because her bath is usually late and requires me to blow-dry her hair. I hate using heat on her hair because she has really fine hair. I worry the heat will damage it. I've actually thought her hair looked dry, lately. So, this has been a welcome addition to our routine and is working great. I will be buying this one.

My husband has dreadlocks and was making his own oil concoctions to treat his hair and scalp. He tried the oil a couple times himself and says it's not bad. Coming from him, that's positive feedback. ^_^ He takes pride in having clean, healthy looking locs and I'd say he's accomplished that.

As for the shampoo, it seems a little runny. My initial thought was that it's because of the oils, so no big deal. But I have super thick hair, and this shampoo doesn't suds up the way other shampoos do. I feel that I can't get the deep clean I need for my hair. It smells nice and I like the results, but at this price point, it's not  for me.

In contrast to the shampoo, the conditioner is super thick. You know how you squeeze the conditioner into your hand and it sort of smooths out into a shapeless blob? Not this stuff. It's so thick that it keeps is shape. And it comes out in a swirl, so it looks like you're holding a mini soft-serve. Hahaha! That's what I call a quality conditioner. Again, though, my hair is so thick, that I'd go through this bottle in no time. But, if I like the results enough when I finish it, I might actually buy it again.

If I were to give a star rating it would be:
Shampoo - 3 out of 5
Conditioner - 4 out of 5
Oil - 5 out of 5

If you've tried any of these, I'd love to hear what you think. Leave me a comment below. If you'd like to join Influenster, here's my referral link:
