After having (almost) conquered Sulwhasoo and its range of products, I now move my glance on to other brands. hurhurhur. Targets I have in sight are Hera and Innisfree, and since I’m more or less semi bankrupted from the Sulwhasoo shopping, I’m slowly (but surely) making my move on the comparatively cheaper Innisfree.
This is one for the girls who love their sleek, long shiny hair. But to be honest, I was initially attracted by the picture of Yoona – I’m such a sucker for advertising. I really believed that buying this would make my hair (and subsequently my face) look like her. hah.
- It smells really nice – not sure if there’s any specific camellia scent, but I do know that it makes me happy in the shower.
- The shampoo – you know, the usual, froths and lathers up adequately for a clean wash.
- It didn’t give me much dandruff nor itching though.
- The rinse (Koreans call it rinse, we call it conditioner) – is what really works, in my opinion. It really makes my hair sleeker and smoother – and this was during the days that my hair was at its massive peak. I could have gone for a casting for Narnia: The Land of Bad Lion Mane Hair.
- On the slight flipside, it does result in a slight loss of volume (but then again I love my hair to be as large as possible without going into Afro mode).
- The instructions say that it makes for easier styling – but after using it, my hair becomes sleek enough to do without any styling. soooo I don’t have much to say about that. hah.
- I found that there was slightly more hairfall than usual (when compared with my Ryeo shampoo and conditioner). Nothing drastic like a clogged drain cover, but still enough for it to be noticeable.
- I like the price point – at KRW8,000 and KRW9,000, students and working adults can both afford it.
- One thing though – I find that the rinse leaves my bathroom floor quite slippery (my place was built long ago and doesn’t have non-slip tiles nor mats). I’ll often have to rinse out the floor thoroughly after every shower. I’m guessing it’s cos of the silica ingredient, which makes both my hair and the floor become smoother.
Overall, a decent haircare range that hasn’t had any adverse effects on me, but I’ll just return back to my Ryeo shampoo and conditioner cos it makes my hair fall out less.
