Have you ever thought that showering with warm water is gonna make your hair brittle and dry? It even makes your scalp produce excessive oil. A dull hair without shine is the result of washing your hair with warm water and sun exposure too. Just because you think you never did anything with your hair that doesn’t mean your hair is healthy. You still running your life and most of the time, you are exposed to external environments like pollution, dirt, heat, air conditioning and so many others. The heat from the sun is going to make your hair feel so sweaty and oily, not just this. When you use hairdryer is also gonna make your hair feel oily and sweaty. Then we have air conditioning that’s gonna make our hair and skin dry.
You also perhaps heard of people telling you to wash your hair with baby shampoo to make it grow healthier. Baby shampoo has friendly ingredients because a baby has a delicate scalp. Some baby shampoo could make the baby hair very thick and pigmented while others may make the baby hair rough when you touch it. If an adult using baby shampoo, it just lowering the effect of the chemical that actually quite high in adult shampoo. The adult shampoo is adapt to everyday activity such as exposure to the sunlight, pollution, dirt and many other factors, while baby shampoo may not but cleanse the scalp and hair of the baby.
If you are the person who thinks by using just a shampoo alone to let the hair grow healthier, then you are hallucinating. Using the right treatment and try to maintain the hair condition is a good step for healthy hair and scalp. For example: try to wash your hair with cold water followed with conditioner to maintain hair moist. It is same as we wash our face with facial wash and then apply face cream. So, the facial wash is the shampoo, and face cream is conditioner.
Try to use your logic, if you have done permanent hairstyle then you need to be able to maintain the health of your hair, even if you not doing anything permanently you will still need to do hair treatment. The treatment basically varies depending on your need. For example: if I never did anything with my hair in my entire life but wash with warm water and use hair dryer also expose my hair with the sun, rain, and air conditioning without using protection like an umbrella or hat then I need to do the treatment at least once every 3 or 4 months in-salon and use a home treatment such as applying vitamin, serum, leave-in conditioner, hair spa and use the right shampoo or conditioner.
Some people dislike buying conditioner because they think is waste of money, it is indeed washed of money if your hair still remains the same BUT, most of the conditioner use the same ingredients with up to 5 different ingredients. We still have no ideas about the percentage in all of the beauty products. The beauty company has never revealed it and we have no education or knowledge regarding that except if you are following chemistry blogger who actually talked all about these ingredients BUT no worries, I will share my research on review based article for you. don’t forget to follow my Instagram here – for all the newest review notifications and other mini-review.
Since the lockdown occured I am in the midst of stuck within the airport of Indonesia and Singapore. More to it, I just bleach my hair as you can see on my cover image and since then my hair suffers from dryness. I use DIANE Shampoo Moist & Shine above picture with the conditioner too like you, without additional hair care. The hair still needs more moist and treatment than before the bleaching and colouring.
I happened to stroll around in the local groceries store in my hometown in search of hair care products. Then my eyes spotted this product, I used Lucido-L shampoo and conditioner 4 years ago, when I first arrived in Singapore but stopped using it because it is too moist for me and it makes my hair really flat. But, perhaps now I need to use the shampoo and conditioner once again since I need to treat this bleaching hair intensively. Using their shampoo and conditioner may save my hair and time too. Because I happened to move back hometown and now I need to search for a good salon. It will take sometimes to spot a good local salon.
I use Lucido-L Triple Beauty Vitamin Spray for almost a month now.
On the product packaging itself, it doesn’t show to be an expensive product. It is made of plastic and it is lightweight. The spray is quite strong so you may need to apply it carefully or else you will be shocked by the powerful spray. Below is the range of their products for this series, I also purchased the hair oils in cute packaging on the left side and I used it side by side with the vitamin spray. I will see how is the result, hopefully, it will fix my hair. I love the packaging and the colour, it just that for the hair oil, they don’t seem to have it in a bigger size.

Spray it in wet, half wet, or dry hair.

THE USE OF FRAGRANCE IN BEAUTY PRODUCTS
There are lots of speculation regarding this one particular ingredient also the use of herbal or organic ingredients in beauty products. I followed chemist on Instagram. Most of them stated that these ingredients alone are not gonna harm your skin yet you still need to do a test on your skin for precautions effort. Not all people are prone to suffer from allergic reactions, including me. So far, I have no suffered from any kind of bad skin reaction upon using this product.
The reason that beauty company use artificial fragrance is to lower down the bad smell of the product and also, they feel the need to make the customer smell good, not herbal or chemical. In my preference, for skincare, I prefer that some of my skincare have the herbal smell or original smell especially the night skincare but for the morning it is best to not contain any of those smell at all because I need to meet people and it is gonna be funny when my face smell so strong. Imagine what’s gonna happened?
When I use vitamin spray for the first time, I notice a change in my hair and scalp. My scalp turned to be cooler, back then it use to be oily, and sweaty. I use hair dryer almost every day and it makes my scalp suffer from the heatness. The additional causes are my thick hair, it doesn’t let my scalp breathe. That’s the agony of people who have thick hair, my scalp always quick to have a sweaty smell and suffer from oily. I have to wash it every day. Its also not dry fast, it takes a day for my hair to naturally dry *sigh
Another change is my hair cuticle turned to feel so soft and moist, as I try to test it by comb it with my fingers, it combs easily. Usually, the hair stuck between the finger, and I can feel how dry it turned. The spray treats my dry hair by 80%.
After 2 weeks, my hair still feels so soft and smooth. It also protects my hair from the heat caused by the hairdryer. It gives the cool sensation that lower the hot feeling in my scalp that I feel after drying my hair. My scalp is in the better condition right now, it doesn’t feel oily or sweaty.
After a month of use, I guess I am stuck with this product. I stopped to use my hair vitamin and exchange it with hair oil to see what will happen when I use both products in the same brands, also I am trying to lower my expenses. I did mention above that this product doesn’t look like an expensive product but it does deliver ‘expensive’ quality for me.
Will I recommend this product? Yes, you can try on this product. It doesn’t cost much after all
Will I use this product as permanent hair care now? Yes, absolutely. The result shows the changes in my scalp and hair.
Any other hair product recommendation? I usually use Pantene leave-in treatment to maintain the smoothness and L’Oreal elseve hair oil to make my hair shine. You can also try DIANE shampoo, it feels great when I use it but not for the conditioner. The Lucido-L shampoo and conditioner are good for those who suffer from damaged hair. It also smells nice. I also use Ellips hair vitamin before I replace it with Lucido-L hair oils.
