My Current Hair Care Products

I've been going through quite a few bottles of these. I'm very happy with how they work on my hair. I've stopped using Tsubaki shampoo and conditioner for a few months now. The longer I use Tsubaki, the more it weighs down my hair. Maybe my hair got 'immune' to the shampoo thus doesn't work that well anymore.

Since then, I've gone through quite a few different shampoos and conditioners trying to find the right one for me. Tried a few drugstore shampoos including the red Tsubaki, Ascience, Dove, etc. Those doesn't agree with my hair. Makes them either dry and coarse or weigh down my hair too much. I already have thin hair. The last thing I want to do is to make them flatter than they already are. :/

Until I found Simple shampoo and Dove conditioner..
my current haircare combo
Erm.. the actual names are Simple Kind To Hair Gentle Care Shampoo and Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Daily Treatment Conditioner. What a mouthful :O

They are nothing fancy and can easily be found in local drugstores like Guardian or Watsons. The Simple Shampoo is rm14.90 for 200ml and the Dove conditioner is only RM10.90(correct me if i'm wrong) for 180ml.

The shampoo works well for me by cleansing without stripping it dry. It still provides the clean feeling I like but it doesn't leave my hair stiff and dry. It has no scent and no color whatsoever. I kinda like that. Feels like my hair is prepped clean for the conditioner to do its work.

I use the conditioner on the lower half on my hair, leave it on for a couple of minutes then rinse it off. I love the smell of this treatment conditioner. It might be too strong for some people. Sniff before you buy ok? This treatment conditioner makes my hair so soft and manageable.

Ah.. the downside of these 2 is they finish so fast. I have to repurchase every 1-1.5 months. I find that kinda troublesome.. :/

Recently, I've also incorporated a new product into my haircare routine. The SP Balance Scalp Energy Serum because my hairstylist says that my hair is thinning.
Oh.. This stuff is good. I'm on the second week of using this and I can already notice my fringe doesn't look as flat. I think it does something to the oil production of my scalp. I hope in a month or two, I'm able to see more hair on my head. :P *crossing my fingers*

Until the next post, BIG HUG~

  1. Could you elaborate on the SP Balance Scalp Energy Serum? Btw I just started using Essential hair mask and it's awesome! Sooo much better than my previous hair masks but Essential is not available here so that sucks

  2. essential hair mask! i've heard of that. only can get nearest in singapore rite? sigh..
    as for the scalp serum, been using for a week only. it seems to lessen oil on my scalp so my fringe looks not as flat. as for whether it solve my hair loss problem or not, i'll hav to wait for another 2-3 months to see.. :D

  3. I've heard that you always need to switch up your shampoos and conditioners, or what's better is to use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of all the silicones and junk that other products can leave in your hair. I've always heard of the Tsubaki line but have never personally tried it. I wish I had thin hair lol, my hair is all dry and coarse - very "non Asian" =[

  4. lol i think the Tsubaki shampoo left some silicone in my hair that's why it gets quite flat. The simple shampoo, I feel, works a bit like clarifying shampoo.
