Ever since I dyed my hair for the first time a few months ago it hasn’t been in the best condition. Its been much drier than usual. Also the weather change of moving from London back to Singapore hasn’t helped. I’ve been trying to take extra care of it.
The 3 products I’m using this January is the Percy & Reed No Oil Oil for thick hair, the original Tangle Teezer and the Enfanti anti-dandruff shampoo.
I’ve been meaning to get the original Tangle Teezer for months having heard so many good reviews about it and finally got in in London over Christmas at Peter Jones for £11. They come in various cute colours and the colour combi I got is my fav – pastel green and pastel pink. I always brush my hair after I wash it so I chose a Tangle Teezer for both wet and dry hair. With my old brush I had to really yank my hair to get rid of knots and in the process pull out lots of hair. But this brush makes brushing my wet hair so much easier. It brushes through my hair much more smoothly and less hair is pulled out. I’ve tried it when my hair is dry and it works like a dream as well. One thing is that there’s no handle, there’s a little groove where you hold the Tangle Teezer. I’m much more used to having a brush with a handle its much easier to hold. It is really compact though so you could carry it in your handbag wherever you go. I think the Tangle Teezer Wet Detangler (which has a handle) would have have been the best choice for me. And on a side note they also started doing a Pet Teezer for dogs! I think my cockapoo Teddy would definitely love to try and review that.
Now if you’re living in a really humid country like Singapore you definitely need a good hair oil to help with the frizz. Plus I also have alot of annoying baby hair that gets in the way and tickles my forehead. Last month I got the Percy & Reed No Oil Oil for thick hair from Sephora in Singapore. I got the 60 ml bottle for S$28. It has pomegranate seed oil which fights frizz, nourishes and repairs hair. It has a nice subtle scent and isn’t too greasy. I find it really helps with my frizz and baby hairs and lasts throughout the day in the heat. It is also priced very reasonably. I’ve used more than half of it in less than 2 months, and will be buying another bottle.
Then there’s the Bioken Enfanti Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. I bought the large 32 oz size off redmart for S$49.50. Its great for all hair types including colour treated hair. Its supposed to cleanse hair while purifying while giving your scalp tone and eliminating flaking and itching. Its infused with antiseptic herbs that helps dandruff and psoriasis. Now I don’t actually have dandruff (I promise lol) but my scalp gets itchy sometimes since I’ve been back in Singapore. A little of this shampoo goes a long way. My hair feels really fresh and clean after using this and has completely stopped itching. It doesn’t make my hair too oily either. It also has a really nice refreshing minty tea-tree scent. And the best part is that it’s sulphate free and paraben free! Sulphate free shampoo is great as it preserves natural hair oils and is colour friendly. And paraben free shampoo is always a good idea because parabens disrupt hormone function which is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and reproductive toxicity. I love this shampoo and might even try the conditioner!
So these are the hair products I’m using this month. I love the Percy & Reed hair oil and the Enfanti Shampoo. I like the Tangle Teezer but wish it had a handle. Hopefully the condition of my hair will improve real soon! X
