Haircare : Shampoo and Conditioner

I have been blessed with thin flat straight hair all my life. I love it being naturally straight but I do not like the less volume hair I have. Even worst, my daily hair fall. Not helping at all. This has been my long time concern but I just didn't bother to do anything to fix it. Plain lazy!

I have only been using Head & Shoulder shampoo every other day for the last few years. I tried using Sunsilk but it made top of my hair oily. Now why is that? I also did not use hair conditioner because my hair stylist told me that I have a thin hair and I should not use any conditioner as that will makes it even thinner! Of course I do not want that to happen so I stopped using it.

Recently, Dear Husband had his hair cut at Trendyz in The Mall. Andre is so friendly and kind. He told DH that most of the shampoo here contains less nutrients than the ones available abroad. Something like that. Told us not to buy those made from the neighbouring countries. It is still okay to use, its not bad but the content is just less beneficial. If you get what he meant! I debated with DH about this, saying that these are made for Asian and those are for people with FOUR seasons! *lol* In the end, we stopped debating because we realised that it is useless to disagree about things that are not of our expertise :P

As a result, we bought new shampoo and hair conditioner from Dove recently. I've used it a couple of times and it did not make the top of my hair oily which is a plus! :D In case you're wondering, the reason why I use anti dandruff shampoo is when my hair gets oily these little flakes will come out too. :(

I'm curious! (and a little bit nosy :P) How often do you wash your hair? Do you use conditioner every time after you wash your hair? Since we usually use a head scarf, which type of shampoo do you use? Do you rotate between two shampoos?

P/S: You can read for more informative and interesting topics discussed and products review on haircare.


  1. I wash my hair everyday. Kalau I skip even one day the hair fall will be very alarming!! Pasal the oily root loosen them? (that's my guess *lols*)

    Conditioner not so often. Macam once a week? Reason, plain lazy HAHHA. Kalau karing, my solution will be, hair cut. Trim the dry ends :p

    My shampoo: L'oreal Total Repair (5)

    Hair fall kurang compare to the time when I used other products (as long as I wash my hair daily pulang tu) and once a month I wash my hair pakai another product to strengthen the root; lupa ku namanya. Will get back to you on this soon hehe

  2. Maybe I should try to shampoo my hair daily! My hair fall is def very alarming! :( My hair is already thin and its getting thinner with all these hair fall. *sighs*

    I'm looking for volumizing shampoo too as a treatment shampoo. I only saw Follow Me Green Tea di Giant. Don't know if its ok or not.

    1. Guess what, so far I think 'volumizing' shampoo is just a hoax hehe. Try doing cream bath every 2-weeks and a frequent hair treatment too. Bebelanja pulang but its worth it.

      That's what I did before and my hair at THAT time healthy as in inda karing, and macam tabal. But when I stopped doing those, back to the norm au naturale haha.

      And yang inda-payah-cuci-your-hair-everyday theory atu, I don't think its applicable for Brunei's weather. The moist, the heat and our way of covering our head with scarf atu does not comply with the said rule *maybe*

      That's my finding so far ;p

    2. Haha but I found another shampoo online and I hope it'll give a slight changes. If not then its a hoax! Haha :P

      I dont wear headscarf everyday since Im only at home but during weekends usually everyday psl I go out usually. Hehe.. I guess you are right about it. We wear headscarf hence our hair become more oily and etc being trapped all day long. A good shampoo with scalp care should be enough I supposed.

  3. Tip frm me would be applying ur shampoo twice as in.. apply, rinse n apply then final rinse.. insya-Allah~ i wear headscarf everyday n i just need to shampoo my hair ard 2-3x a week. Fr me hair mask works much better rather than conditioner... oh there's hairfall shampoo by sunsilk or pantene if ure willing to try..

    1. Thanks for the tip! I shall try it today! Hehe :D

      I saw hair mask the other day but not sure whether to buy it or not. I'll put this in my next grocery shopping. Last night though I picked up L'oreal Hair Fall treatment shampoo. I hope it'll work! :)

    2. Shall try this tip too ;p thanks Mrs.A. Also Ef, so far L'oreal works wonder with me hehe. Hope it'll work with you too.

      And don't buy those shampoo yang printed with thai's writing.

    3. I have tried the tip and my hair feels amazingly clean and thick! I am not sure if its the shampoo or the double cleanse but Im so glad it works!!! :D Thank youuuuu!

    4. auuuu no no to thai writings... well, I just don't buy them. hehehe... I sure hope it works for u Wiina, and Effa, im sure it's because of both!

    5. glad its working!! yayy!! bagi susah hati kali ah pasal rambut ani. walaupun betudung hehe =D

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
