Review: Bawang hair products

On one of my online shopping sprees, yes I indulge in them a lot, I came across Bawang products. Their products are made from Chinese herbs and get promoted by Jackie Chan, who has ultraglossy hair. They are common in China but harder to find in Europe, I got mine through cosme-de at a cheap price.

Now on to my hair, I have long hair that's a bit dry and frizzles a lot, I regularly use styling tools. So far I haven't come across a shampoo or conditioner that is perfect for me so I had no reason not to try this one. I opted for the repairing and nourishing shampoo, along with the conditioner. Both of them promise soft, shiny hair - like all products claim to do.

Swatches of the products: left shampoo, right conditioner:

As you can see the shampoo is quite runny, orange color and the conditioner is thicker with a beige color. Both products have the same smell that I can't get used to, it's a very heavy strong smell that reminds me of a bad men's perfume, like a strong eau de cologne. I don't like it at all. Normally I enjoy herbal fragrances but this one is overwhelming. I use another one of my masks after the conditioner to get rid of the scent, yes it's that bad.

I've been using the products for about 2 months now and can honestly say that they partly do what they promise. My hair is much softer than usual, easily combable. Only thing missing is the shine. Friends of mine have also asked me if I colored my hair as it appeared darker so it has a bit of a darkening effect to it as well.

I would recommend this product if you like the scent, but me, I will continue my quest for the holy grail hair products...

Yeah, I warned about the scent... It's too much and I didn't like it at all. It does deliver result, but I want my hair to smell good. Right now I'm using JOICO K-Pak and I love it (+ it smells heavenly), I will be doing a review of it soon, be sure to check it.

This conditioner is really effective in making my hair soft, smooth, shiny and bouncy. I use it once a week and wrapped in a shower cap for 1 hour to see better result.
