Five of my fave hair products, currently
If you've got fine hair like mine that's prone to hair fall, frizz, and dryness, then have I got some recommendations for you! I don't often talk about hair finds because it's so freakin' hard to find something that works for my wavy, thin hair. I need volume and moisture. I need products that won't cause any more hair fall. Fortunately, I've found five new faves that fit the job description.
Phyto Paris Phytocyane Densifying Treatment Shampoo (P795 in Rustan's). This was recommended to me by my favorite hair stylist, Jude Hipolito of JuRo salon. I've been complaining about my thinning hair since forever and he told me to try this since a lot of people swear by it. True enough, after using it for three months, I've experienced a lot less hair fall and breakage. I've also regained some volume in my problem spots!
This shampoo works, but it has to be used regularly - like, everyday - to get results. When you stop, the positive effects stop too. It's rather expensive but if your hair is seriously falling dead like fireflies before dawn then I feel it's worth the investment. Very little goes a long way! And it has a nice herbal scent.
A note on packaging: I wish it was a squeeze bottle instead of a metal bottle. The shampoo tends to pour out since it's so runny; I'm always careful not to tilt the bottle the whole way.
Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Color & Perm Lasting Care Conditioner (P159/180ml). I hope you've realized by now that all the raves about this conditioner are not just sponsored and empty - it's a devilishly good product that does exactly what it promises. I've been using this consistently since I reviewed it in February, and I don't even use conditioner normally! I got to try the one for colored/treated hair and I love how i makes my dye job more brilliant after every use. I use it once or twice a week to keep my hair from being too dry and frizzy.
Don't know what's in this stuff but totally worth the purchase - and subsequent re-purchase!
Prostyle Fuwarie Styling Mist (P450 in Beauty Bar). This is an old yet recently rediscovered styling fave of mine. I find normal hairspray to be too stiff and irritating so I use something like Fuwarie. It's waterbased so it doesn't harden; it also provides a flowy shape to hair especially when applied before a blow dry. It smells nice too!
The Wet Brush Pro Select (available in Beauty Bar). I know it's bad, but I comb my hair after showering. My excuse is that it becomes a tangled mess if I don't do it. Now that I've got the Wet Brush though I don't have to worry about unintentionally pulling out my hair every time I comb it - damp or dry. The bristles are super bendy and soft, but they detangle my hair smoothly. Love this!
Scunci No-Slip Grip bands (available in Beauty Bar). This is more of a styling-slash-comfort aid for my hair while I'm working. I don't like having hair on my face, however, I also don't like using headbands that squeeze my glasses and make my scalp warm. I like the Scunci slim hair elastic because it keeps my hair away while also keeping my scalp cool! You can use just one piece or use all of them in one go. They don't pull or pinch the hair.
So there you have it. ^_^ What are you current hair faves? Would love to know what girls with different hair types use for themselves!
