Finding the right hair care products is just like finding the right skin care product: it’s difficult, it’s very personal, and you need to go through many trials and fails before you finally get there. I have had my fair share of fails, and have just recently found this winning combination.
Starting with the life changing tangle teezer. Before getting my hands on this, I haven’t brushed my hair regularly for years, really, I’m not kidding, years. Since I have always had curly hairs (digitally permed), I thought brushing through them would straighten it and ended up losing the style. I cannot be more wrong, not only it didn’t prolong my curl, my hairs were terribly tangled together and looked messy. Every time when I tried to run fingers through my hairs, it would stuck in the middle length and my hairs were far from healthy.
The tangle teezer is revolutionary, unlike any other traditional hair brush, it has soft plastic bristles which enables it to glide through vulnerable hairs without yanking, in other words, you won’t end up pulling hairs off while detangling. I use it every time after washing my hairs, and while it’s still wet, followed up a blow dry of my scalp. No matter you have straight hairs or curly hairs, detangling is equally important. It leaves you with healthier hairs to style, and at the bare minimum, you look cleaner.
After brushing my hairs with the Tangle Teezer, blowing dry my scalp, I follow up with the Phyto Phytodensium Lifeless Hair Age-Defying Serum. This is a new addition to my hair care routine, thanks to Sandra’s recommendation, and I’m already in love with it. Forget about the “age-defying” claim, no idea what does that even mean when it comes to hair care, but it does make your scalp healthier. Before using this serum, on the second day, my scalp would be super itchy and quite unbearable, and the annoying hair dandruff showed no sign of stopping. But after just using it for twice, I don’t get that anymore: no more itchy feeling, dandruff is disappearing, and even less hair falls.
Last not certainly least, the Living Proof perfect hair day 5-in-1 styling treatment, oh my god! I have tried dozens of live in conditioners, but nothing, nothing even come close to this. There is no word to describe my love for this treatment, it does everything it claims: provides volume, smoothness, conditioning, strength and polish. Oh and also, it doesn’t weigh your hair down, and smells amazing! And, and, I think it holds curls as well. Usually, my curls would last about 4-5 months before start looking flappy. But I’m now in my 8th month after last perm (I picked this up right after the perm, so have been using it the whole time non-stop), my hair still has nice curl, looser than before, but more natural. I usually apply it when my hairs are still damp, and tie it up to a bun and leave it there for a couple of hours, before loose it and go to the bed. The next day, I’ll have nice, natural curl hairs. On a side note, I cannot fall asleep with a bun on my head, but if you can, try it. I’m pretty sure you will get even better results.
So here are my holy grail hair care products. If you haven’t tried them yet, and are in the market for some hair care products, check them out. By the way, if you live in the U.S., all of them are available in Sephora. And if you are in Singapore, you can find the Phyto serum in Watsons, the tangle teezer in luxola, which often has promotions, and Living proof 5-in-1 styling treatment in Sephora.
