A Lesson in Hair Care

Hi everyone,

After years of being a beauty blogger, I thought I knew everything. However, once in a while life throws me a curve ball to make me re-evaluate my so-called "superiority." The most recent one involves a shampoo. You see, I was using the black Sunsilk shampoo with shimmer (aka Sunsilk Co-Creations by Jamal Hammadi.) It was fine and dandy until I decided to jump ship to the pink Sunsilk (another Co-Creations product by Yuko Yamashita.)

Why the change of heart, you ask.

Because the TV commercial told me so. You see, the pink Sunsilk is meant for straight hair and since I do have stick straight hair, it should be good, right?

Well, kinda.

The first few weeks went fine: my hair was sleeker and dried a lot faster without using the blow dryer. I also noticed slight volume on my hair. On top of that, this shampoo smells like strawberry milkshake, which is fantastic.

But it ended right about there. I also noticed how dirty my hair became on the second day. Dirty and itchy. Therefore, I changed my schedule from every other day wash to every day. Then, it became dirty and itchy and dry. So I added conditioner. It became dirty and itchy and dry but oily by the time I washed it.

And then something happened, too. My housekeeper noticed how much of my hair was falling on the floor. "You need to do something," she told me, "This is not healthy for your body, you know. I am sick and my hair doesn't fall down that much."

Her words made me take a long hard look at my diet and daily routine. Everything seemed fine. Then, I looked at my bathroom and it dawned on me that the pink Sunsilk was the culprit. I switched back to the black Sunsilk and everything came back to the way it once was.

The morality of this story is simple: if you find something that works, stick with it. Don't get fancy as it may cause you more trouble in the long run.

How about you? Do you have any similar experience? I know my hair is not that fussy but that was quite scary.

That's all for now, folks! Hope you'll have a good week ahead.

Dao xoxo
