The summer heat is almost over here in the Philippines as rain already started to make its random downpours for the past 2 weeks, but the warmth and humidity is still a frienemy for our hair and scalp, which lead me to purchase a new pair of Kao Asience Moisture Balance Shampoo & Conditioner. If you have been following my blog for a while you might know that I adore japanese products, from skincare to point makeup; heck even their junk food! Hello Pocky? That's another story. ;)
Kao Asience Moisture Balance Shampoo & Conditioner
Ingredients include: Water, ammonium laureth sulfate, alcohol, glycol distearate, lauramidopropyl betaine, dimethicone, myristyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, sodium laureth sulfate, cocamide mea, isodecyl glyceryl ether, malic acid, eucalyptus globulus leaf extract, glycine soja(soybean protein), panax ginseng root extract, camellia japonica seed oil, hydrolyzed conchiolin protein, polyquaternium-10, polyquaternium-7, laureth-4, laureth-16, sodium benzoate, butylene glycol, benzyl alcohol, toluene sulfonic acid, potassium hydroxide, caramel, fragrance
Meant for normal to oily asian hair, the shampoo cleans the hair and scalp very thoroughly without making it feel like its been stripped off its natural oils (moisture balance - check!), rather leaving the hair refreshingly dirt and oil free. Followed by the conditioner, it makes the hair smoother (of course), shinier and smelling like sweet flowers (sorry, I suck at describing scents). It makes my hair feel lighter too which I like very much because its more manageable when its lighter.
If you sniff it straight from the bottle, the fragrance might be overwhelming for the senses, but for me it just means that my hair will smell great after I use it (I love it when my hair smells good!) and it did not disappoint, if you're like me, who involuntarily sniffs your own hair (weird, random fact!), you will love this as the scent can linger the whole day. :)
Only downside is I still have to go to our local chinatown to get it, which means its not very accessible. Price is Php550 (approx. $12) per 530ml bottle. Also, I'm still alternating between 4 types of shampoo/conditioner (a clarifying shampoo included) to maximize product potential and prevent product build up.
I hope you're all having a good week so far! Stay gorge! ;)
