(Sponsored Review) Tsubaki Head Spa for Healthy Scalp and Beautiful Tresses!

On the way back one night, my bf said to me:‘Ehhhh, i saw some dandruff, did you wash your hair properly?’ (Photo credits to 9Gag)

Oh great!!!! Not only i have problems with my complexion, my scalp has to join in the fun as well….

The next morning, i was invited to Tsubaki’s head spa event. Talking about JIT (just-in-time) again!
However, due to last min work commitments, i cannot make it but Charmain was kind enough to pass me the products for review.. Thank you babe! 🙂

Shiseido’s Tsubaki has made its first appearance in March 2006 with its value added hair care which promises beautiful shiny hair. The two existing products in its hair care ranges are the Shining Range (in red) and damage control Range (in White).  The secrets which contributes to woman’s desire for beautiful hair lies in the ingredients such as finely selected camellia oil, ‘high Purity Tsubaki Oil EX’ and the ‘Shine Sensor Mechanism’ which makes hair glossy and shiny to the roots.

Recently, there’s an increase in desire to achieve ‘Beautiful hair from the roots’ as more people are heading to ‘Head Spas’ in hair salons with an emphasis for scalp care. Hence to keep up with this trend, Shiseido has released the new Head Spa Line (GOLD) that keeps hair beautiful and shiny from scalp through the combination of natural essential oils and scalp care needs. This experience will give users a relaxing experience close to what you’ll get in a spa salon.

This new range will be an additional one to the existing shining and Damage Care Range to cater to different hair concerns.

The head Spa Line has 4 products that contains natural essential oils that are nourishing which helps with activating of healthy scalp and hair.

Product List:

Tsubaki Head Spa Extra Cleasing (Shampoo, 280ml)
**Once a week care to remove accumulated sebum, dead skin cell and products residue
Tsubaki Head Spa Shampoo (Shampoo, 550ml)
Tsubaki Head Spa Conditioner (Conditioner, 550ml)
** Daily care to improve scalp condition and generate beautiful hair through daily care
Tsubaki Head Spa Mask (Hair treatment, 180g)
*Relax care to energize scalp and facilitate the flow of blood by hot-cold effect and pampering dried scalp.

The natural essential oils are carefully selected and blended into every product in this Gold Line which leads to healthy hair that is moisturized and stronger. It contains effective ingredients like:

Sage, Rosemary, Ginger and Shea butter – to help with scalp detox, blood circulation and to provide moisturizing effect.

High Purity Tsubaki Oil EX To keep hair moisturized and Shiny.

Another distinctive factor for this range will be its aroma which is an invigorating combination of natural essential oils which include Marigold, rose and Cinnamon for a soothing and calming effect. Gold is also used as an representative color as it evokes thoughts of the sun which is a symbol of life and beauty.

The two products sponsored for my daily care needs to drive away Dandruff and to protect both hair / Scalp!!

My Verdict:

I don’t know what triggers my dandruff problem as it just surfaced out of a sudden.. Stress? Hormone change? Weather? Lack of sleep?? All i know that it affects my self esteem and i have to avoid wearing black to avoid the visibility of dandruff flakes.. Eeekks!!!

Together with the use of Tsubaki Head Spa Shampoo and showering with lukewarm water, i’m out to resolve my dandruff issue.. In case you don’t know, if water temperature is too high, it will actually upset your scalp… Also, i have avoided the use of conditioner as i don’t wish to load my sensitive scalp with too much products…

Moisturizing Effect: 4/5

Initially i was worried that my hair will be dry but to my surprise, it doesn’t tangled up even without the use of any serum / conditioner.. After using it for 5 days, my hair has a nice sheen (as you can see from the pic below) and it is really softer to the touch…

Texture and Scent: 5/5

The shampoo has a creamy texture which works up to a rich foam to help removes built up and residue.  The shampoo also gives my scalp a slight menthol cooling feeling which is rather soothing!  The shampoo has a really nice calming scent and it leaves a long-lasting fragrance on my hair..

Cleansing Power: 4.5/5

After using it for 5 days, i don’t see much dandruff on my hair anymore.. Also, my scalp doesn’t feel that itchy.. Hurray! i told my bf to give it a try to see how the shampoo fares in removing his stubborn hair wax.. His hair wax can be removed in  only one wash and he told me that he loves the scent of the shampoo a lot 🙂
