Keeping my hair healthy is important to me. Healthy hair means beautiful hair :) No doubt about it! That is why I'm always on the constant look for hair products that will work wonders on my crowning glory. Of course I have to ask myself first: what is my hair problem or issue?
My hair has always been bad to me. I have thick, dry, wavy hair before I got it rebonded. Right now my hair is showing signs of curliness (it's time for a visit to my salon), dryness and thinning. Yes, I'm having some hair loss problem :( Aside from this my scalp is oily and easily get dandruff :( So I need a shampoo and conditioner that fights dandruff, moisturize my hair and keep it strong. I don't need a shampoo that promises straighter hair (for the curliness) when you know that it won't straighten it at all. I also need something to tame those untamed ones. Did I found one? Well, today I'll review hair products, shampoo and conditioner to be specific, that's been lying in my cabinet for awhile. If I didn't clean my cabinet like two-weeks ago, I wouldn't find this at all nor remember it. I think it is waiting to be reviewed (hehehe!).

Nature Republic had a massive summer sale last June 2010. I got this on sale (I'm not sure if its 30% or 50% off) via one of my fave online store: kkochipida. Since I have been having issue on my oily scalp at that time, I was on hunt on new hair products for scalp problem. Good thing this was on sale so I grabbed the opportunity then. So how was it? Since I was very much accustomed to the minty feel of using Head and Shoulder Green Menthol Shampoo, I was expecting for a minty feel too upon application. I was disappointed because there weren't that much minty action. Well I can't blame it since it did not say any cool menthol included. Probably because of the word Refresh on its name. That freshness after using it, wasn't really a fresh feeling but it was okay. The conditioner is also okay in moisturizing my hair. But then I need more especially the lower part due to dryness :( Over all this is just an okay shampoo but in getting those dandruff away is a no-no. I think my trusty Head and Shoulder is still on top. Though I have used one from Elianto before but I forgot to review it since my sister took it without my permission from my cabinet. The next thing I know its empty :( But the few times I used it, I did like it. I'll probably get one soon :) As for the packaging, I did not expect this to be that huge or should I say stout. The bottom part of the bottle is rounded that makes it huge and doesn't really fits inside my little bath basket :( If only they'll just make it slimmer and taller rather than short yet stout :-/ It comes in a pump-type bottle.
As I am writing this, the news on the devastation of a tsunami due to the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that hits Japan is everywhere. I pray for the Japanese people to be able to find strength to stand up again. Though I know they can :) Be safe everybody!
