ISO Bouncy Curl Defining Shampoo Conditioner and Treatment Review

I am too lazy to do a haul of what I bought at the Shiseido warehouse sale recently so I will do reviews of individual products. I permed my hair during my Tokyo trip last month (Wonderful experience! If anyone interested please let me know I'll do a post!) so when I saw this ISO Bouncy Curl-Defining shampoo/conditioner/treatment set for curly hair for only $6 CAD (the entire set!) I didn't wait for 1 sec! However, I am disappointed.

Shampoo and Conditioner

The name of this line is 'Bouncy' and 'Curl-defining' but it does not delivery its promise at all. My hair went totally flat after using the shampoo and conditioner, especially the hair on the top of my head. I look like I just came out of bed! It is not very moisturizing either, only very average. At first I thought my hair isn`t used to it so I gave it a few tries but nothing else happened. Not happy.


This is a leave-in treatment that you massage onto your hair after you towel dry them from washing. This is how the product looks like, a cream like consistency:

The treatment is a bit better than the shampoo and conditioner as it did provide some moisture, but still no bouncy nor curl defining effect as promised. Again not happy.


I had good experience with ISO hair products in the past so I hope this is a one off. I always pick up some ISO shampoo/conditioner at the past Shiseido warehouse sale as they were so cheap compared to outside, and so far they had been good. Not this time. I hate it when my hair is flat and even for $6 it's totally not worth it. Overall this is a 1/5.
