My current hair care routine

Hello, dearies,

I admit I always change my shampoo and conditioner every time I finish a bottle. The reason is there are so many kinds to try and curious me wants to experience them! I don't want to stick to just one brand because it gets boring and tiresome to my morning bath.
I also know I should have a hot oil or hair cut every month but I do not like to go to the salon that often because sometimes when the attendant handles my hair roughly, and pull while combing or shampooing, I get stressed out.
So I prefer to have treatments at home. One time I used mayonnaise and it seemed thicker. Sometimes, I use vinegar on my second to the last rinse. Although my hair smells repulsive, it seems clarified- shinier and lighter.
Every time I shampoo my hair I ALWAYS follow with a conditioner. I don't wash my hair when I didn't go out the previous day. I wash my hair about 6 times a week because the pollution is too much. Sometimes, when I go out, I use leave on hair treatment like Lucido-L or L'Oreal Extraordinary oil. I don't use them often because it might go to my face and cause breakouts.

Update: I realized I didn't write my complete routine. After shampoo and conditioner, I comb my hair to remove tangles. Before, I used the original Hair Doctor with metal rotating bristles that I own for 15 years now! But I stopped using this metallic comb because I colored my hair. Now I use a wide-toothed plastic comb which can be seen here. Then at night, before I wash my face, I use my Goody brush to remove the day's dust, dirt and pollution. I don't use electric appliance because I am afraid of inflicting more damage. No blow dryer, straightener or curler.

Currently, I use Pantene shampoo and conditioner. These are made in Thailand. This is also a review of Total Damage Care shampoo and Hair Fall Control conditioner.


  • Hair is soft and manageable all day
  • Fresh floral fragrance (depending on your activity, fragrance may last all day) and hair feels light
  • My colleague told me she never uses any other ONLY THIS brand because her hair is hiyang
  • It was on promo- buy a bottle of shampoo free sachets of conditioner plus a chance to win a diamond just check the inside of the carton if it was printed there
  • I am not sure if there is any significant benefit of anti-damage and hair fall because last time I checked, I still had split ends so I just had a hair cut. Regarding hair fall, it was less with this brand but it's also addressed by the trim and hair mud. :p
palmolive conditioner pantene conditioner
Palmolive with more contents at 14ml is even slightly smaller than the big pantene sachet, both Pantene 10 ml only. All about 6 Philippine Pesos each at stores

  • The packaging looks misleading to me- because I was used to its small size sachet and then here comes a big size sachet with 80% MORE in bold letters. One really has to inspect and read it carefully to know that it's the same amount 10 ml- buyer beware
  • It's one of the higher priced brands and maybe it's price can be lower had it not been using celebrities and commercials but who am I to say that? They benefit from the stars' popularity. And in commercials we see perfect hair and before I naively thought hey just by using this once my hair will be like that? I realized it is NOT achieved from wash and wear coz it takes a team of stylists
  • A chemically -laden (sulfate, dimethicone) product not for people who use 'organic'
Will I buy it again?

Not for now simply because I already have other products lined up! I got the L'Oreal fall repair sachets as samples at the supermarket/department store. They gave it for free so we can try it.. Then I got the L'Oreal Total Repair at buy 12 shampoos get 12 conditioners free. Aren't they generous?
l'oreal shampoo and conditioner
the bottle of Pantene shampoo i am currently using and after i finish it i will use next the L'oreal sachets

My classmate before who had gorgeous jet-black megashiny long hair said she uses the oil from coconuts (freshly made, not the kind bought in supermarkets) weekly.
That's a wrap! Thank you for reading!
