(Still!) Experimenting with other Hair Care Products

Even after I have found the best combination of hair care routine for myself, I am still very willing to experiment on different hair care products. Maybe I'm hoping I'll chance upon affordable alternatives that can give me satisfactory results.

#1 Watsons' Avocado
Conditioning Treatment Wax

I was brainwashed by the whole avocado craze (except that this isn't edible) and decided to get this when my last bottle of the treatment I had was used up. At RM15.90 for a 500ml bottle from Watsons (ShopeeMY), it actually makes my hair softer but needs to be used at least twice a week just to maintain the result.

#2 Refibra by Elgon

I'm so eyeing ampoules these days! This is a random brand I bought from a shop selling hair care products in 1Utama (forgot the name) for about RM25 per ampoules. There was an option of getting a set for a slight discount but I didnt want to spend a lot for something I wasn't sure its going to work. According to the salesperson, it is meant to treat damaged hair from dyeing and heat styling your hair.

The result felt like using a hair styling cream that hardens and keep your styles in place. Unfortunately this isn't something I'm looking for because my natural wavy hair already have some staying power to some extend, usually when its properly moisturized. I also couldn't tell if my hair felt healthier with Refibra and so I'm glad I only bought a bottle.

#3 Bene Premium Rougeria 
Shampoo & Hair Mask

It wasn't my intention to include this in the first place since I only had the one-time use samples. However, I like how they made my hair smells good and feeling super hydrated, giving an almost similar to when using my Bioma Plant +9 Hair Treatment (Bioma still top the chart though!). Besides that, my hair has recently become quite thin due to using my new shampoos and that lead to more hair fall. This shampoo and hair mask combo seems to reverse it slightly. I'd need to experiment further if I want to be truly sure of this. Meanwhile keeping this in view while I am using my hair care supplies!

#4 Everything Dove!

Somehow noticed I've literally stock piled an entire set of Dove products! Wasn't intentionally, I have forgotten that I haven't used some of them and ended up with 3 bottles of conditioners _ the Dove 1 Minute Serum Conditioner (ShopeeMY), Dove Hyaluron Serum Conditioner (ShopeeMY) and Dove Detox Nourishment Conditioner (ShopeeMY). Kinda silly because with the lockdown and WFH situation I don't wash my hair daily anymore never mind condition them so frequently! On top of those is the Dove Intense Repair Shampoo (ShopeeMY).

It will take a while before I dive into the others but I must say, Dove doesn't disappoint! Their 1 Minute Serum Conditioner works just as the name suggested. I do think they works best for my super dry hair though they definitely cannot compare to more expensive brands. With shampoos, I do think the price reflects the results _ which mean the pricier the better.


 I would say among all of these, Dove and Watsons' avocado hair masks are my preferred products in terms of the results they give. Because Dove came out with quite a huge range of products which I'm super interested to try them all, I don't think I'll be getting other brands soon even though I'm seeing a lot of brands have either been doing facelifts or have new formulas. Dove, can you sponsor me already?

Meanwhile, I actually bought another DIY hair dye but couldn't decide if I should at least lightly bleached my hair before I do all this hair dye. The last few attempts at DIY hair dye my hair has been disappointing which I think the color isn't showing because a lot of hair dye brands works best on lighter shade hair. Yet I cringe at the thought of destroying my hair again. After so much effort to maintain my hair! And so the pondering continues...
