Ma Cherie Hair Care Range by Shiseido

 Ma Cherie Hair Oil, 60ml

 Watery kind of texture

I found this wonderful product in Watson's in Taiwan. It is a hair serum formulated with 'champagne honey essence' (literally translated from Chinese), which penetrates deep into hair, making it soft, smooth and easy to manage. Supposed to work well for damaged hair. 

I can't say I have tried many hair serums, perhaps only a few from L'oreal Professionel, SexyGirl and Sebastian. Of those I have tried, this is really the best! As my hair is pretty damaged due to many chemical treatments like perming, rebonding and coloring, I have never really found a serum that is able to make my hair feel smooth to the touch (my hair ends, eeks!) I really chose this out of many other hair oils because of the packaging, and I am glad I did. 

I spread 3 pumps of the essence to my hair ends (yups a lot, cause my hair can be quite fizzy!) when it is still damp after washing. Then I carefully comb the hair ends, making sure that I do not pull too hard, as it is not advisable to comb my hair when it is still wet. There is no need to rinse and I let my hair air dry. My hair is really smooth and very manageable after that! Surprise surprise :) Of course, the smoothness does not last the whole day, as my hair is still damaged, but it is already much better.

After I tried the essence in the hotel for 2 days, I bought 6 more bottles back to Singapore!! 

Rating: 5/5!! Love it!

 Ma Cherie Air Feel Shampoo, 500ml, NT290
for 'fluffy' hair with airy feel

Ma Cherie Moisture Conditioner, 500ml, NT290
for damaged hair

After being really impressed by the essence, I decided to try their shampoo and conditioner. I am not sure  how to review shampoo and conditioner, except that I think they work quite well with my hair. I don't think they impress me, as I can't use the shampoo without the conditioner, and my hair doesn't feel very smooth if I don't use the hair oil. However, I like these 2 better than the Tsubaki hair care range. Too bad I can't get new ones in Singapore yet when I finish these! I used to use the one for damaged hair (white packaging). 

Rating for shampoo & conditioner: 3.5/5 Good, but probably can find better.

All the 3 products have a sweet fruity scent that reminds me of apples. I can't really smell any champagne or honey. The scent is the strongest for the essence.

This hair serum sounds divine! I need to get my hands on it soon. I'm okay w/the Shiseido shampoos and conditioners too. I think their treatments are much better :)
