A beloved subject again – hair – from the outsider’s perspective it might look thick and amazing naturally. I hear such compliments often, but it’s a very serious, daily task for me. I’m constanly in search of something new that could make my hair look taken care of. If I let them do their thing, then they turn into something thin, fluffy and going unpredictably in different directions.
Innisfree My Hair Recipe Strength Tonic Essence is meant for wear hair roots. For me that’s exactly what the doctor ordered!
Unlike my favorite Japanese accelerators by kaminomoto, this doesn’t have alcohol scent but smells like plant extracts.
The first thing I detect is the smell of menthol, even though it’s in the last spot on the list, and the some sort of eastern herbs, wood and pine.
The essence doesn’t make the hair greasy, I’ve been applying it before bed for several months now, hair looks thicker – I’ve forgotten about the issue of hair loss since my Japanese products. This one seems to make the hair not so thin, making it look thicker but without fluff. Exactly what I needed.
The manufacturer promises to reduce scalp stress. The ingredients from cedar, cypress and pine care for damaged scalp.
– Saponin supports circulation and strengthens the follicule
– Pine, cedar and cypress components reduce scalp stress, making the skin healthy
– Ginseng helps stimulate blood flow in the scalp and strengthens hair roots
What this essence does:
1. Eases blood circulation in the scalp and strengthens the hair roots
2. Provides an immediate freshening effect
How to use:
Shake well and spray a sufficient amount directly onto the clean scalp. Massage with fingertips in circular motions.
The use is minimal due to the spray pump. 5-6 drops is enough for my entire head. I should also note how useful the sprayer is – no danger of pouring out too much. Nothing will leak under your collar, or worse – on your face. And the spray comes with a cool cap, I haven’t seen ones like it before.
I like this essence a lot! I think I’ll buy it again. And will continue to look into similar Korean hair products and share my discoveries with you.
