Samy Fat Hair - My Big Fat Hair


Like a lot of women, I seem to be on some sort of eternal quest to achieve thick, bouncy and big hair.

I've tried a whole load of products over the years to try and tame my mane into the Cheryl Cole/ Kim Kardashian hybrid hair I've imagined and I wanted to share my latest find.

I've got to admit I'm more loyal to Boots than Superdrug for some reason, but I was killing some time in the hair section of Superdrug a few weeks ago when I came across the Samy range.

Initially it was the Jooouge Fun Fiber String Mousse that caught my eye, but I got a little shy about it and went for the Fat Hair range instead.

The range includes a shampoo, conditioner, thickening spray, thickening creme, pomade, amplifying hair spray and mousse.
There was some kind of offer on (can't remember what it was exactly) so I picked up the thickening creme and amplifying mousse.

I've been using these products on and off since I got them and I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised.


Because they work!

All the products in the Fat Hair range contain the 'FH4 Thickening Complex' that claims to penetrate each and every strand and literally expand them from the inside out. How cool is that?

Both the mousse and the creme are basically applied in the same way - just massage a small amount into towel dried hair, blast with hair dryer (upside down for extra oomph), then sit back and bask in your big-haired sexiness :D

The Fat Hair Thickening Creme is a creamy, sort of gel like product that absorbs extremely easily. It's not sticky like a lot of styling products seem to be and you only need to use a little bit. I use it from roots to tips and it doesn't seem to weigh my hair down or make my scalp oily.

The Amplifying Mousse is like a typical hair mousse in terms of texture and I do find that it leaves some of my ends a little 'crispy' once dry, but this isn't a problem because I just brush it out. I use the mousse in conjunction with the Creme and I've found them to be a winning combination.

I'm a bit lazy most of the time when it comes to drying my hair and I've found I get really nice results by working the products through my damp hair, letting it air dry a little more, then twisting it up into a topknot before bed.

In the morning I shower and apply my makeup, then blast the topknot with a hairdryer before letting my hair out last thing and seeing what it does!
ETA - Sadly, Samy hair products now seem to be discontinued worlwide


  1. Great tip about the top knot - I'll definitely be trying that!

  2. Great review. My daughter does the top knot and really helps with her volume. :) I've got short hair so find pin curls help for me - see my blog. :)

  3. I love Fat Hair product, like you said they do really work. :D
