I love the effect I did on the above photo! Looks like a cut-out from a magazine…
Previously, I was using that Jackie Chan shampoo! hahaha… very auntie, right? But I think that is a little too moisturizing for my oily scalp.
I also noticed that my hair keeps falling out during showers when there is excessive oil… :-\ maybe because the oil clogged my hair follicles & prevents them from breathing??? I dunno what is the exact reason, but it makes sense.
Before using this Asience shampoo, my hair looks lifeless & flat throughout the day. It even gets progressively oilier & oiler at the crown.
SO IRRITATING, right?????
After work, if I happen to have dinner plans with my friends, I look in the mirror & see a dirty little thing who hasn’t showered for days. Sometimes, it gets so bad that I am embarrassed to be standing near a taller person because that fella is going to look down at me & see nothing but oily dirty-looking hair. I am not even going to proceed to talk about what oily scalp smells like. 😦
… … or maybe I am going to talk about it. You know your scalp is oily when you detect a foul smell as you shake your head left & right. Or when you’re squatting down & then the same foul smell hits you as you stand up. Or when you lie on your bf’s shoulder & he goes, “Wheww!!! Something died in your hair!!!”
… *shifty eyes left right up down*
… n… n… not that it has ever happened to me but you know what I mean…
*shifty eyes shifty eyes*…
Anywayz, I also feel that if my scalp is oily, then that oil is going to eventually travel down my strands of hairs & end up on my forehead, which would give me all sorts of skin problems like blackheads & zits & whatever.
This has got to stop, man!!!
I even went to Bee Choo (i bet you never heard of this, but you can Google) to perform herbal magic on my scalp. Of course it will leave a strong chinese herby smell on your hair for a least 1 week, but it doesn’t bother me as much as Hugo Boss or Calvin Klein. Also, it definitely made my scalp less oily for about a month. And what do you know? YIPPEE!!! Less hair fall during my showers!!! HORRAY FOR BEE CHOO!!!
*sees mummy jumping for joy in the toilet*
I had always known that Asience was in the market for quite some time now, but I do not know why I never wanted to try it. However, seeing how my mother keeps complaining of having to clear the gutter hole from my bunch of hairs, I decided to shop for one meant for oily scalp. I cannot depend on Bee Choo forever! What if they jack up their prices?? Or move out of Singapore??
I saw the description on the Asience shampoo & I decided to give it a go.
My Asience shampoo is almost finishing up & I am replenishing my supplies this weekend. This shampoo works for me! My hair doesn’t stick flat down onto my scalp anymore & even has a little bit of volume now. At the end of the day, it still does get a tiny bit oily, but it is not as bad as before!
Also, from losing about 20 hairs everyday in the shower, it has definitely reduced to about 5 strands. This statistic is provided by mummy. She came up to me & told me how much hair I was losing in the shower. I cannot believe she actually counted. Either that, or she makes a damn good guess because right after she told me that I was losing 20 strands, I started to count them myself. It was really about 20 each time I showered. After Bee Choo & Asience combined, it reduced to 5 strands.
Yes, I’m still going to Bee Choo. At least once in 2 months. It is supposedly to promote healthy scalp using a blend of chinese herbs. Each time I visit their outlet, there is such a lot of people. Does this mean Bee Choo works? *shrugs*… for me, it does help in its own little way.
Oh god it’s only Tuesday today.
