KOREAN BEAUTY Daeng Gi Meo Ri – Oriental Special Shampoo

KOREAN BEAUTY Daeng Gi Meo Ri – Oriental Special Shampoo

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. Today I am reviewing another haircare product from Korean beauty brand Daeng Gi Meo Ri, a couple of months ago I reviewed their Ja Dam Hwa Scalp & Hair Cleansing Treatment. Daeng Gi Meo Ri specialise in herbal shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments and this is their Oriental Special Shampoo* gift pack. The box is really large and contains two bottles of the shampoo – a large 500ml pump bottle and a smaller travel sized 145ml bottle. I think this would make a really nice gift, given that it comes gift boxed. The shampoo itself is quite thick and brown. All of the ingredients and directions on the back of...

NEW! TIGI Bed Head launches Joyride

NEW! TIGI Bed Head launches Joyride

Yesterday, 1st September 2015, marked the launch of Joyride – the new Powder Primer Balm (PP Balm) from TIGI’s Bed Head range. Joyride primes the hair with a fine, invisible powder that adds texture and grip, plus it also defrizzes and smoothes flyaway hair. Joyride can be used it on its own for styling, or as a primer before using other styling products. For best results it should be applied through the middle and lengths of damp hair to provide a soft texture, making the hair easier to style. I received a sample of Joyride* PP Balm a couple of weeks ago, you may have seen the teaser image I posted on Twitter as I wasn’t allowed to properly talk about the new product until after its launch… I have to admit I don’t normally use many styling products other than a bit of smoothing serum so I don’t have much to compare Joyride to, but after using my sample my hair did seem to resist frizz better than it would do usually after straightening....

KOREAN BEAUTY Daeng Gi Meo – Ri Ja Dam Hwa Scalp & Hair Cleansing Treatment

KOREAN BEAUTY Daeng Gi Meo – Ri Ja Dam Hwa Scalp & Hair Cleansing Treatment

I am currently taking part in an initiative working with BNT News International, a global beauty/fashion/lifestyle and entertainment source based in Seoul, South Korea. I am helping BNT to promote a selection of new and exciting Korean beauty products to a UK audience, these are products that you probably won’t have seen before and some of them are really different and unique. My second Korean beauty post went live last Friday when I reviewed Lips In Love lip paint from Forencos. The product that I am reviewing today has possibly the longest name of anything I’ve ever tested! It’s Ja Dam Hwa Scalp & Hair Cleansing Treatment from Daeng Gi Meo Ri. Now firstly I have to admit that I’ve found it a bit of a struggle to review this product, all of the directions and ingredients on the box and tube are in Korean so I had to do a bit of investigation on the internet to find out how to use the treatment! Basically it’s a herbal treatment for...

Kerastase – Cristalliste Lait Cristal Conditioner

Kerastase – Cristalliste Lait Cristal Conditioner

This Kerastase Cristalliste Lait Cristal hair conditioner came in my March 2015 My Little Box. I wasn’t too impressed when I first discovered it as I’m not a big tryer of different hair products, I suffer from a sensitive scalp so usually when I find something that works I stick with it. But in the interests of blogging I tried out the Cristalliste Lait Cristal and I was really glad that I did! Cristalliste Lait Cristal is a creamy textured pale pink conditioner with a matching pretty scent. It has been developed specifically for those with long dry hair, or dry ends and contains no silicones or parabens. You just apply it to your hair like a regular conditioner after shampooing, focusing particularly on the ends of the hair, and leave it for 2-3 minutes then rinse off. I’ve only used it a couple of times so far but I’m really pleased with the results. My hair feels soft and silky right down to the ends, and the pretty scent stays...

Naked – Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner

Naked – Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner

Those of you who are regular readers of Beauty Best Friend will know that I suffer from a very sensitive, itchy scalp and I am constantly on the hunt for haircare products that are natural and non-irritating but that also treat my hair well and leave it feeling soft, shiny and clean. So far my experience has generally shown me that natural, SLS-free shampoos and conditioners do not irritate the scalp as much as their chemical filled cousins, but that they do not always clean the hair as well and can leave it looking and feeling greasy, sad and lifeless. One of the first SLS-free shampoo and conditioners that I tried, back in 2013, was Mild Shampoo and Gentle Conditioner from Naked. The relief that I got from my itchy scalp was almost instant, but I did find that it didn’t remove grease and oil from my hair too well, and I had to wash my hair a lot more often. Since then I’ve tried lots of different SLS-free haircare...
