Sometimes, things are such a staple in your life that you take them for granted – I realise that I’ve been using Korea’s Ryeo 吕 / 려 Ham Bit Mo Shampoo and Rinse (they don’t call it conditioner) 함빛모 샴푸 린스 for such a long time that I’ve never thought to review it. Check out my review entry here – it’s a really great haircare set.
Here’s an extension of the range – the Ryeo Water Essence.
I swear both photos are taken on the same day and time – not sure why they turn out to be two different hair colours though. lol. Am loving the reddish brown done by Jei this round.
Clearly the photos speak for themselves.
- The Ryeo Water Essence adds more life to my hair, and stops the ends from frizzing out.
- It also adds radiance to my hair and makes it look more shiny and sleek. Note that sleek does not equate to flat – I hate flat hair with a vengeance. The bigger the better I say.
- It smells nice and vaguely herbal – not an overpowering scent but not a succinct scent either.
- It dries out pretty fast, so you won’t be left with damp hair for long.
- There’s also no sticky after-feeling – you can barely feel anything there.
- Cos the ends of my hair are the remnants of my double-perm job in 2012, they’re as close to hay as possible, and are the portions that require the most attention.
- After emptying out one bottle by spritzing every day, it paid off. Jei actually said that my hair’s condition has improved by leaps and bounds. Personally, I don’t think my hair looks like hair still , but it does show less signs of being zombie-hair.
- Somehow, the Water Essence also helps to enhance what’s remaining of my curls.
Overall, a product worth trying if you’ve got damaged hair like I do.
