REVIEW: Daeng Gi Meo Ri Vitalizing Series (Shampoo + Scalp Nutrition Pack + Treatment + Nutrition Hair Pack)

Hello everyone!

How are you holding up with the circuit breaker (or lockdown, depending on where you are)? As a homebody, being cooped up at home never seemed like much of a big deal to me until I personally felt how warm and stuffy my living room (where I usually work from) would get in the afternoon for the first time since moving here – even with two pretty solid desk fans blowing in my face.

And one thing leads to another. Apart from the occasional musty odour of my sweat and small pustules popping out more frequently on my face, I also noticed an increase in my hair fall which, quite frankly, isn’t an entirely new to me. Normally when that happens, I would immediately book an appointment with my hairstylist to get my locks snipped. But with non-essential businesses being told to close during this period, this option is temporarily unavailable 🤦🏻‍♀️The absence of professional help meant that I could only rely on over-the-counter hair products to slow down my balding process until the economy reopens. For that, I’m thankful that Daeng Gi Meo Ri (댕기머리) had come to the rescue because picking the right products for my sensitive scalp would be a whole new issue in itself!

Daeng Gi Meo Ri

Daeng Gi Meo Ri

New to the brand? You’re not alone! Through some digging, I managed to find out a bit more about Daeng Gi Meo Ri. Based on unofficial reports, it has actually been around in the Singapore hair care market since 2014 and had even bagged some awards. I must been living under a rock!

Established in 1998, Daeng Gi Meo Ri is the first hair care brand in South Korea to incorporate traditional oriental herbal ingredients in their formula designed to maximise hair health through beneficial medicinal herbs extracted with traditional Korean fermentation process. It comes with specific ranges (Vitalizing, Energizing and Yellow Blossom) to cater to different scalp needs and conditions. In my case, I was recommended the Vitalizing range by its rep for its hair-loss prevention and hair growth capabilities.

By the way, Daeng Gi Meo Ri doesn’t gender-discriminate. It works well for the guys too 😉

Vitalizing Shampoo

Their number-one selling shampoo (the last time I checked, it’s sold out on Watsons!) helps in cleansing the scalp and preventing hair tangles with moisture supply, which may in turn improve your hair condition in 3 to 6 months. I mean, just by the smell of it, you’d know it’s not some gimmicky shampoo that banks on the power of scent (looking at you, P&G brands). It has a very noticeable herbal smell (somewhat like a more pleasant version of luo han guo combined with chrysanthemum) which fortunately doesn’t mess with my nose.

Expected more lather than this, to be honest! But it was more foamy at subsequent washes somehow!

The appearance of the product funnily reminds me of malt extract as it has an incredibly thick consistency. Just one wash and I was already able to feel the cleanliness of my scalp which normally felt oily (and sticky?). There was also a vast difference in the texture of my hair. Can’t say I wasn’t impressed and surprised by the results at all! 😱

Vitalizing Treatment

Every shampoo has to have a conditioner accompaniment, so this is no exception. But rather than a conditioner, this is paired with a treatment (very common to see treatments in place of conditioners nowadays) which I presume is due to the incorporation of more potent ingredients that lead to more targeted results, rather than just giving hair the ultra-smooth effect. This scalp essence (as Daeng Gi Meo Ri calls it) claims to help in the prevention of hair loss by delivering medicinal herbal nutrition deep into the scalp to strengthen hair follicles.

Although it still has a herbal note to it, the treatment smells more inviting as compared to the shampoo, and it looks like a thick malted milk formulation (y’know, like Horlicks). This leaves my hair SO soft and silky smooth every time! 😍

Vitalizing Hair Cap

Missed going to professional hair salons to pamper your hair already? You cannot replicate that same experience at home but you can certainly achieve similar results with the help of this hair treatment cap. This easy-to-use self care for your hair contains additional fermented oriental herbal ingredients to supply nutrients to hair weakened from various elements (for instance, from chemical treatment including perms, dyes and stress from daily heat styling). Simply put, this is a more extravagant, one-time use version of the treatment for days you want to indulge in some serious TLC for your hair.

My experience in trying hair caps from other brands was nothing short of a nightmare. I remembered struggling to keep my waist-length hair each time inside the hair cap which wasn’t very well secured by the weakly adhesive tape. However, this was not the case for Daeng Gi Meo Ri’s which had even included another layer of wood pulp-like material inside the cap to hold my hair captive. The adhesive tape isn’t sticky to the touch but it somehow clings onto the cap like absolute magic (even after stripping it off to readjust the cap)!

It's a perfect wrap!

Once all my hair had been tucked into the cap, I massaged my head to ensure even distribution of the serum around my hair. Then, came a pleasant surprise – a cooling sensation started creeping in to reinvigorate my scalp! After about 15 minutes, I removed the cap and rinsed the serum off my hair. As I ran through my hair with my fingers, I could already feel its softness and smoothness (the same happened to my toilet floor – I almost slipped!). All in all, the product was a lot better than I had expected!

Vitalizing Scalp Nutrition Pack for Hair Loss

An over-the-counter tonic approved by the South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, this scalp pack not only promises hair growth and the reduction of hair loss, it also helps to reduce scalp itchiness.

Imagine trying to resist the temptation to scratch your scalp because you don’t want to give the impression that you have head lice. Yup, that’s me on most sweltering days, and products I had tried in hopes of alleviating the itch had been largely unsuccessful. These past failed attempts naturally led me to cast a doubtful light on this clear, runny tonic (doesn’t help that it also kinda smells like mouthwash 🤣). But alas, I was wrong! (And I’ve never felt so happy to be proven wrong!)

It has been three days since using the tonic and the number of times my fingers reached for my scalp has visibly reduced. The cool weather might have a small part to play in this but my scalp has never felt this.. normal for a long time! Did I mention that this also gives a tingly sensation?

For the record, the tonic is applied daily after cleansing my scalp (with shampoo and treatment, duh!) and blow-drying my hair to increase its efficacy.

The initial results of using these Daeng Gi Meo Ri products were beyond satisfactory as I do see an improvement in my hair quality (e.g. less frizz, slightly more volume and a lot easier to manage) especially when I wake up. However, it’s still too early to say if they are effective in promoting hair growth. The prices are also on the high side for some drugstore hair care products and this makes me very hesistant to dispense a full pump of shampoo and treatment at every wash (which may do more harm than good as more strain might be put on my scalp due to the lack of lather). But I guess you could always wait to snag them at a lower price during one of the many Watsons sales.

Addressing Your Mane Concerns: Signature Herbal Scalp Treatment at Luxe Scalp Specialist

Hello everyone!

READ TILL THE END FOR A SPECIAL OFFER!

Far from being my crowning glory, my hair had been the bane of my existence – it was visibly thin, frizzy and brittle (hence, much to my dismay, most hair tutorials don’t work for me). Sadly, these problems seemed to have gotten worse with age, to the extent that I could never run my fingers through my hair without losing gobs of them (which was why I had stopped brushing and combing my hair as often to prevent more breakage). Every look in the mirror gnawed away at my self-esteem as I noticed my ever-widening bald spot creeping forward from the crown of my head. At the rate my hair was disappearing, it wouldn’t be long before the bald patches could peek through whichever parting I would be wearing. Soon, my search history once filled with queries on acne was now permeated by worrying questions about premature baldness.

In a stroke of luck, an invitation from Luxe Scalp Specialist to try their scalp treatment showed up in my inbox (do I have guardian angels watching over me?!) and boy, never was I so quick in agreeing to a collaboration. Thank you for coming to my rescue 😭

Luxe Scalp Specialist who?

Founded in 2012, Luxe Scalp Specialist provides top-notch yet budget-friendly personalised scalp care treatments using modernised herbal formulation and trichological techniques while observing and practising high standard of professional conduct and ethical behaviour (no hard sell!). Their herbal treatment is 100% pure, contains no parabens and preservatives, and is validated by Mr Riff Lim, a trichologist certified by the International Association of Trichologists (IAT).

The company follows the L.U.X.E. principle, where services are luxurious and of optimal quality; unique with the use of a one-of-a-kind blend of the finest Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs (they are the only company that uses this formulation!) to combat hair problems such as oily scalp, thinning hair, dandruff and greying hair; experiential as every treatment includes their signature acupressure scalp massage that aids in blood circulation, and a reliever neck massage that is meant to relax the neck’s muscle; and effective, as vouched by their customers who had seen improvements in their conditions after just three treatments.

The Treatment: Signature Herbal Mask with Collagen Deep Moisturising Mask

My visit at their Tampines 1 outlet commenced with a scalp analysis for the specialist (quite frankly, she probably didn’t need it to know that my scalp was in a terrible shape) to better understand my scalp condition. The close-up scan revealed that, despite the dry texture of my hair, my scalp was actually oily and weak to boot, which explained the excessive hair fall I had been experiencing. This was further aggravated by the length of my hair which had kinda been adding to the pressure on my already vulnerable-scalp. With scalp as feeble as mine, the solution wouldn’t be as simple as just chopping off my hair – regaining its health would require professional help which Luxe Scalp is certainly equipped to give.

Once the analysis was completed, the specialist ushered me to my seat where I would receive the Signature Herbal Mask treatment. This 2-hour herbal treatment is specially concocted with premium herbs handpicked from the Himalayan hills and then carefully brewed to allow thorough extraction of their essence and nutrients. It aims to reduce hair loss and dandruff, stimulate hair growth, boost blood circulation, prevent premature greying of hair, control oil production and soothe redness and scalp irritation.

My specialist began with a duo comb massage to improve blood circulation to my scalp. The whole brushing process was smooth and painless despite her swift movements – amazingly, the combs never once got stuck on any tangle!

She then proceeded to spritz some ginger-infused tonic on my scalp to stimulate the pores, and applied herbal mask (which had an awakening scent of Ginseng which lingered on my hair for the next two days) all over the top of my head before covering it with cling wrap. This was followed by a 30-minute micro-steaming session to allow for greater absorption of the herbal essences into the scalp.

After the beeper sounded for the therapist to move the steamer away, I was led to the washing basin for a deep-cleanse hair bath which lasted for no more than 10 minutes. Being the meticulous person she was, the therapist repeatedly ensured that I was comfortable with the water temperature (I could choose between cold or warm) before rinsing my hair. With her trained dainty fingers easing and relaxing every part of my scalp during the wash, I couldn’t help but drift off into a nap!

Rinse away!

Back at my seat with my hair still wet from the wash, the therapist applied the Luxe Scalp Tonic on my scalp to intensify hair growth. My treatment in particular also came with collagen deep moisturising mask (which is actually ideal for dry and aging scalp) to help strengthen and repair my hair structure, moisturise the scalp and relieve itch, improve hair density and vitality, as well as form a protective barrier against external pollution. To ensure freshness and avoid contamination, the treatment masks are packed in individual sachets and they will be further heated up upon customers’ arrival to facilitate the penetration of the herbal essence into the scalp and help stimulate healthier hair roots.

The treatment at last concluded (*gasp* it’s been two hours already?!) with an invigorating scalp and shoulder acupressure massage that focused on boosting blood circulation for hair growth.

Sifting my hair through my fingers, what felt like dry rough hay-like strands were now noticeably softer and more manageable. Of course, no miracles were achieved in that one session, and my bald spot was still largely visible. But fast forward about a month, those once-barren patches are starting to show signs of growth! WOOHOO! The future of my hair is finally looking optimistic 😭

Adding the finishing touches. Frizz, be gone!

REVIEW: Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask + Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment

Hello skincare fanatics!

Unless you have gone on a social media diet, you would definitely have been at the mercy of Facebook and Instagram’s algorithm and seen numerous videos of people prancing around with a pink (or blue) jar or letting out an orgasmic sigh as they slid some pink mousse-like paste down their cheeks. Well, if you didn’t manage to sit through the advertisements to find out what the rage was all about, wonder no more as this review will take you through the exact same products that had sent so many people into a state of euphoria.

*squeals* I'M SO EXCITED!

*squeals* I’M SO EXCITED!

Ohh hey there!

Ohh hey there!

It's the Sand&Sky Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment and Porefining Face Mask!

It’s the Sand&Sky Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment and Porefining Face Mask!

Founded by Australian twin sisters and supermoms Emily and Sarah Hamilton – who were also the creators of beauty box subscription company, Bellabox – in April 2017, Sand&Sky was born out of the realisation that there was a gap in the market for luxurious yet affordable and effective face masks, as well as their desire to showcase the efficacy of the botanical ingredients (ethically) obtained from their motherland in skincare.

So, gathering their market intelligence on consumer behaviour and experience in collating beauty products for Bellabox members, the Hamilton sisters formulated a millennial pink (😱) clay mask that contains 50% Kaolin clay (Kaolin tops the ingredient list as shown here and it is a considerable amount as compared to the 10-15% in many clay products) sourced from remote pockets of Southern and Western Australia to remove toxins and impurities from the skin, and organic liquorice to diminish the appearance of skin discolouration. Apart from organic aloe and pomegranate to tighten pores, soothe, and stimulate collagen production, this much-revered formula also includes a combination of kakadu plum and mangosteen to create a defence shield that would leave skin clear and glowing.

Enclosed in the box together with the pink jar (note that it’s no longer blue) of clay mask is a handy flat brush (high quality with soft bristles 😍) which I feel is a really thoughtful gesture on Sand&Sky’s part to maintain the sterility of the product during application. On top of that, it also helps ensure even coverage fast and prevents wastage while keeping our hands clean.

Cool when first applied, the mask – which had a subtle musty and earthy smell – became warmer as it settled on my towel-dried skin. There was some tingling sensation (but no discomfort or itchiness whatsoever) and gradually, areas where pores were most visible turned red slightly beneath the mask. Perhaps because the fan was blowing in my direction, it kinda expedited the drying time so the mask took less than 5 minutes to solidify completely.

TAKE NOTE 📌
Clay masks are known to dry out when exposed to humidity or a drastic change in temperature. Therefore, refrain from storing the clay mask in the bathroom as this will cause it to dry faster. Instead, keep it at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Should your clay mask harden prematurely in the jar, add a few drops of serum or water (about half of the amount of clay left in the jar) to rehydrate it.

Still, it was left on for the suggested 10 minutes before I removed it with a damp cloth in an upward motion. Just to sidetrack a bit, I cringe every time I see reviewers drag their skin down with their cloth as if having a droopy and saggy face is a worthy trade-off for a brighter complexion. As far as possible, we want our skin to be both firm and youthful, so never do that! Alternatively, if you have no cloth available at your disposal (and don’t worry, it doesn’t stain), you can easily wash it off – again, in upward motion – with warm water, which was what I eventually did when I realised that the wiped-off product on my cloth kept transferring back onto my face (the product liquifies instantly when comes in contact with water), repeatedly forming white casts with every wipe 😑

My verdict? The Porefining Face Mask delivered what it promised – a tightened, rejuvenated and shine-free complexion without harmful chemicals and the unnecessarily excessive use of preservatives, which ultimately make it suitable for sensitive skin like mine (even so, doing a patch test on your inner elbow is advisable), and safe to use in pregnancy. The results were even more prominent on my 60-year-old mother (unfortunately, no pictorial evidence as I had experimented on her out of boredom and didn’t expect it to work so well) who was absolutely amazed to see her fine lines smoothed out, wrinkles softened and an overall improvement in her complexion after use. Her skin felt silky to the touch too so for the first few minutes she couldn’t keep her hands off her face!

I must, however, add that this is not a cure for acne (but can be used alongside your regular skincare products). In fact, in the process of detoxification and purging, little poppable bumps – like in my case – may surface on congested areas a few days later. But they never grew beyond their initial minuscule size and they disappeared entirely once gratifyingly popped 😂

Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment

Exfoliating scrub

Exfoliating scrub

Since the tremendous success of the face mask, Sand&Sky has followed up with a second product that would complement the erratic schedule of career-oriented women: an exfoliating scrub that doubles as a flash mask which can be applied in-shower. It is also more nourishing than the original mask, making it an ideal option for those with extremely dry skin.

Likewise, the Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment also contains Australian Pink Clay to draw toxins, pollution and impurities from deep within the skin. But because it has more water content, it appears translucent to reveal the physical exfoliating particles when spread out on the skin. Apart from that, it has, among many other ingredients, low amount (less than 10%) of AHAs from Australian finger lime to promote cell turnover, collagen production and the absorption of moisture into the skin, bamboo stem extract to restore elasticity and suppleness to the skin, as well as rosehip seed oil for face rejuvenation and its anti-aging benefits.

To use, gently massage the exfoliating scrub into cleansed, moist skin (avoid eye area) in circular motion for about 30 seconds to allow the granules to remove dead skin cells. Then, leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. And there you have it – radiant, sensationally soft and smooth skin in just half the time needed earlier! Plus, it also allows for better and more effective absorption of any serums and moisturisers that come after.

However, it wasn’t until I looked in the mirror the next morning that I saw the full extent of the effect. My face seemed like it was given a new lease of life as it appeared to be more refreshed and clear, and the newly smooth canvas made it really easy to apply my foundation. Moreover, the experience provided by the scrub was quite different from that of the clay mask. Besides the coarse texture and the fact that I had to get my hands “dirty”, the warm and tingling sensation felt when using the mask was noticeably absent this time.

With the key ingredient Australian Pink Clay present in the clay mask and exfoliating scrub, one may ask if it is necessary to purchase both. In all honesty, it depends on the intent for using the products. I would say the primary function of the clay mask is to purify and tighten enlarged pores and reverse dull skin while the scrub is mainly to exfoliate and eliminate those nasties responsible for clogged pores. Personally, I would pick the scrub over the mask out of convenience, and also because I don’t like to be rushed into finishing the clay mask before it dries out. But both products work best together so ideally, you should get the Perfect Skin Bundle (save 15%!). Bear in mind, though, that they should not be used on the same day because too much good stuff may irritate the already-delicate skin 😝

Furthermore, getting the honourable nod from PETA also meant that Sand&Sky does not test on animals, nor does it contain any animal components or by-product. Thus, if you’re a firm believer that no animals should suffer for our vanity, this reason should propel you to support this brand!
