That's me... looking like Sadako from the Japanese horror movie The Ring. But hey, this stolen pic of me got thumbs up because of my shiny hair! So some have asked this ghetto gurl on how to achieve the same for their own mane. :-) Well today's the day that I spill some beans.
I first read about Shiseido's Tsubaki Shampoo and Conditioner line from Manila Fashion Observer. She saw it in a Japanese grocery store Mitsuwa in New Jersey and saw good reviews from her and internet research about it. When I got the chance to visit the said grocery, I rushed to the shampoo section to see if it's there. Voila! It's on sale (but I forgot the price though hehe!)
According to Shiseido, the Tsubaki line is the best selling from the hair care line of Shiseido Japan. It contains the red camelia or in Japanese Tsubaki flower which is celebrated in Japan because of its oils easily absorbed by the skin and hair.
Here are the yay's I have for Tsubaki:
- My hair is soft, shiny, and manageable. Since I have thick locks, this shampoo makes my hair feel lightweight
- I love love the scent.
- For the shampoo, a little on my palm goes a long way. Having thick and long hair, my consumption is lessened than usual.
And the nay's:
- As far as I know, Nikki of Askmewhats told me there's a store in Robinsons Manila that sells Tsubaki but for a very very hefty price :(
Btw, before I forget, I bought 2 huge pump bottles of the shampoo and conditioner in Hong Kong last year which were on sale and really cheapo! (And I forgot the price again. Sorry!) What I do is I transfer contents to smaller bottles so I can easily bring to the shower or when I travel. So when my supply runs out, I don't think I can afford to go to HK and just buy Tsubaki hahaha! :) I'll be on the lookout by then for my next holy grail of shampoo and conditioner.
