One of my biggest problems with my hair is that it can be dry, so I always need to find ways to address that particular issue. I just recently got my hands on a new product to do just that. Tsubaki hair oil is a product of Shisheido, so I was keen to try it because I know it’s a reputable brand. And besides, who can resist that beautiful bottle? It practically glows like a lava lamp and is a must have on any dresser. 😀
Tsubaki hair oil is made of Camellia oil to deeply protect, moisturise and repair your hair, resulting in a luxurious shine. Camellia oil is made from specially selected camellia seeds from the Goto Islands in Nagasaki.
It instantly penetrates hair upon application without feeling greasy or sticky and gives a silky smooth finish. It also protects your hair from damage by UV rays and heat from hair dryers or other styling equipment while preventing split ends and hair breakage.
And it has an elegant and indulgent scent of floral and green fruity notes.
I gave it my first go on one side of my hair so I can tell the difference. It did! But did you know how difficult it is to show on camera?? I took a few shots and there didn’t seem to be any! So finally I got frustrated and flipped my entire head over, and when my hair fell back into place, it looked like this:
That is probably the most ridiculous-looking picture of a blogger you have ever seen, no? Ah who cares, at least I finally have my proof! (Sort of.)
Let’s try again:
I think that’s better. Notice how the right side looks smoother and shinier? I love it!
Here are some application tips:
How to apply evenly
To prevent irregular application, spread half the appropriate amount (about 20-cent coin size for mid- length hair) onto the palms and work through the hair. Then, spread the second half onto the palms and focus on areas that require extra application.
How to prevent flat hair (Particularly recommendable to those who have soft and fine hair)
Refrain from applying large amount inappropriately and unevenly. Start application from the damaged tips and gradually work upwards to the roots to avoid flat hair.
How to reduce volume or prevent dry hair (Particularly recommendable to those who have thick and voluminous hair)
Apply an appropriate amount to wet hair and dry it with a hair dryer. Then, spread a small amount onto the palms and apply on bottom half of the hair to reduce the volume.
Tsubaki Hair Oil is exclusively available in Watsons. Retail price is $26.90.
