Marc Anthony Full Blow Out Lotion packs volume

Thanks to a recommendation from reader, Sihui, I scored a tube of the Marc Anthony Full Blow Out Lotion from Watsons and have been using it daily now. Sihui had told me that the product works wonder for her as she found that her hair had thickened quite a fair bit. Desperate to have my hair looking fuller, I decided to give it a try even though the brand isn’t in the natural category. But surprisingly, this Canadian product is free from parabens and alcohol.

Giving body to fine, lifeless hair
According to the product description, Marc Anthony Full Blow Out Lotion packs a volume punch that lasts all day long. Its heat activated formula adds body, movement and lift to very fine, lifeless hair. Together with the custom blend of Hydrolyzed Silk, Soy and Wheat Proteins called Phytokeratin, this lotion lifts fine hair and creates unbelievable volume that moves.

Marc Anthony Full Blow Out Lotion | 245ml, S$18+

Ingredients:Aqua/Water, PVP/VA Copolymer, Polysorbate-20, Glyercin, Hydroxyethyl, cellulose, polyquaternium-7, styrene VP/copolymer, hydrolyzed silk, , Panthenol, Parfum, Propylene Glycol, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Hydrolyzed Corn Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) (Vitamin E), Triethanolamine, CI 15985

Sihui has been wondering if this is a hair styling or a hair care products. Well, I find that this lotion is really a styling product. I apply some on my damp hair after shampooing before blow drying with a blow dryer. The 10x volume indicated on the product packaging is a bit of an exaggeration. If it’s true, I would probably look like I’m wearing a round black ball on my head and that would have been awfully ridiculous!

Overall summary
What this product really does is to thicken the hair strands and when that happens, my hair do look kinda volumized. So yeah, I like this quite a lot. In fact, I don’t think I can do without it unless I want my hair to revert to looking flat again.

Price and availability
At S$18+ and available at Watson, this product is affordable. In fact, the 245ml tube is going to last me quite a long time even though I use it daily as I don’t need that much each time.

    What do you mean when you say ‘it thickens the hair’? ?

    Is it fluffing the hair or the strand really thickening?

    I would like to know if it makes your hair sort of sticky? I tried a product like this once (not this brand) but it felt very greasy.

    Hope it’ll work for you.

  6. Sesame says:

    The strands feels coarser, like it has some coating. Fluffy initially but when it settles, it’s more like thickened strands to me.

  7. Sesame says:

    Hmmm…no, not sticky or greasy.

    Haha…Chaka Khan?

    For people in the US, I located this product on There is a version called a cream, rather than a blow out lotion, that also gets great reviews.

  10. Hazel says:

    Sesame ? Do you apply it on your hair ends or starting from the roots? Does it add volume even to the crown area? Coz that’s where my hair flattens as the day goes by.

    Halloween parties are nearly coming and nice hairstyles could perhaps give us an edge. It’s been awhile since I have been searching for hair products because of hectic schedules. It is quite refreshing to read blogs again with topics I am interested of.

  14. wing says:

    Will it flatten or turn oily at the end of the day? I have oily hair…

  15. Sesame says:

    Not oily for sure and neither does it flatten. It sorts of thickens the strands and so the hair won’t be fluffy but it won’t flat out.

  16. sihui says:

    hey! Glad that it works for you. feel so flattered that you mentioned me in your blog :p

  17. Sesame says:

    Haha…thanks for the recommendation! ?

    Hey Sesame, I really love vivawoman, I seldom read beauty blogs now cos it kindda makes me feel so out of place; but the fact that you always mention about your limp lifeless greasy hair relates with me very well (sadly, but seriously you hair looks great from the pictures!)

    It was some years ago that my hair became rather oily, on top of that I was born with fine hair, and to make matter worst, my hair volume is consider sparse too. So overall it really makes me look like I am balding soon (which I think I am, slowly, because of the grease, if I get it control it does not drop as much).

    I really appreciate all your recommendation here, I have not read all the posts you have here, but I wonder if you have post that reviews the products after you finish the whole bottle (for e.g. some volumizing shampoo you mentioned).

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Estelle,

    Thanks for visiting my blog and am glad to know that some of the stuff I write here resonates with you. I usually write a review on hair products somewhere between 2 to 4 weeks after trying. I sometimes don’t finish product cos I’m so keen to try new products…LOL. Have you tried Phyto’s balancing serum. I like that very much and it might help your greasy scalp. Check my review here…I’m using it again after a break.
