Fekkai Blowout Hair Products Review

I have a confession to make.

I’m an avid tester of hair products in the hope that someday, one product will simply blow my mind and turn my fine, straight hair into a luxurious model-worthy mane of volume and texture.

So, when I was selected by Influenster to test out a few products from Fekkai, I was ecstatic. I have heard great things about this brand over the years; however, neither of these products worked wonders for me.

Fekkai Blowout Texturizer // As directed, I applied this gel-like product to my towel-dried hair from my roots to the tips of my hair. From there, I blow-dried my hair as usual – upside down with no nozzle until about 80% dry, then attaching the dryer nozzle to direct the heat onto my round brush. When I was finished, I was expecting my hair to have great texture – hence the product name of texturizer, – but I was left with my same ‘ol hairdo. This product did make my hair extra smooth, which is a bit of a contradiction given what results the product claims to produce.


Fekkai Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo // There really isn’t much I can say about this product. Beyond the heavenly smell, this dry shampoo does absolutely nothing. I’ve tried a number of dry shampoos in my day, both high-end and drugstore, and my favorite $3 Suave dry shampoo performs better than this stuff. The first time I used it, I only shook it for 10 to 20 seconds before use, and it came out wet and sticky; I had to re-wet my hair to blow dry and re-style my hair! Once I realized that I had to shake it for a good minute or so before applying the product, it still didn’t get any better. No volume or texture was added to my hair, and I even went back in with a different dry shampoo to get the desired effect that I was seeking.

Needless to say, I won’t be purchasing full-size bottles of these products.

Have you ever tried Fekkai hair products?

    I'm pretty sure I first bought it at Walmart in the US so you should be able to find it! I find it really easy to overdo product with fine hair so I always try to start by using a tiny bit of products and building up until I find the perfect amount to use in my hair. That way it's never crunchy and gives me the effect I'm after!

  2. It's possible that I received a faulty bottle of the dry shampoo, but either way, I just wasn't impressed. However, that goes to show that what doesn't work for one person may work wonders for another. Gotta take reviews for face value!

  3. Glad you found it helpful – I wouldn't recommend them to anybody!

  5. Thanks for the recommendation! I will have to keep an eye out for that brand – is it available in the states? I love mousse, but I've had trouble finding one that works with my hair.

  6. The L'Oreal dry shampoo clearly doesn't sound like it works any better! So far, nothing can really compare to Suave or Batiste in my book.

  7. I've read that you don't need to spend a lot of money on shampoo/conditioner for great results! I've used the L'Oreal sulfate-free line before, too – it's good stuff.

  8. I was disappointed that they didn't work either because they smell SO good.

  9. I'm glad I'm not alone in the hunt!

  10. I know – for being a "drugstore" product, they still are pretty pricey and just not worth it based on these couple products. I know you love the Kerastase line – I still have yet to try it!

  11. Right?! That's the worst part – I end up with a cabinet full of half-used products!

  12. I don't think it's a bad thing that I inherited your hair type, it just makes it difficult to find hair products that work with it!

  14. No, it definitely wasn't a good combination!

    Your review doesn't surprise me about the texturizer. I have fine & thin hair, so I really don't think it would actually work for me either. I am surprised about the dry shampoo thought. I love the stuff, and it always gives me the volume that I am wanting especially with second and third day hair. Maybe it was a bad bottle? But thank you for not sugar coating anything- I had been wanting to try the texturizer, and now I won't be.

  16. I have never tried them, but now I don't have any desire to! Thanks for the review, bummer they didn't work out.

  17. I so appreciate reading an honest review! I never really know if I should get something or not so now I know not to get these! Thanks!

    That's disappointing, but at least you were able to try these out so we don't have to! I have really fine limp hair too, and I'm obsessed with the Samy 0 Calorie mousse. I use a little on my roots and a tiny bit on the rest of my hair and it gives me majorly voluminous hair when I blow dry!

  19. I had that problem with the l'oreal dry shampoo– it would sometimes come out more wet than a powder and it was a mess at first. Such a bummer these products didn't work out for you- the glossing conditioner is my favorite ever!

    I used to use their shampoo all of the time and I loved it. My mom found it at Costco for a great price too. However, I started using Loreal's sulfate free color treated shampoo and I love it. I just don't want to spend a lot of money for shampoo. :-/

    Bummer, I haven't ever been impressed by any Fekkai products either. I'm ALWAYS on the hunt for any hair products that make any sort of difference in my hair too.

  23. I've tried Fekkai hair products before and had the same opinion – not impressed. And the prices are beyond crazy! If I'm going to spend that much, it better be miraculous. Which Kerastase products are – totally worth the money!

  24. Bummer that it didn't work for you! Thanks for your review though – I'm always looking for something that will give me some volume and end up with a lot of products I don't use!

    Have never tried this brand, just goes to show that you don't have to buy high end products to obtain great results. Just like you, I keep searching for that "miracle" hair product – unfortunately, you inherited my hair type!

    What a bummer! I'm with Biana, thanks for your honest review! Try Oribe for a texturizing spray. It works and smells great!
