I've given quick details of the products I've been using, but I've been specifically promising to put up a quick video on what I learned about how to wash your hair properly. I think it's probably self-evident that if you just quickly swoosh shampoo on your crown that you won't clean your whole scalp properly, but it is a salutary lesson to see the effect on your scalp under a microviewer.
I was diagnosed with an oily scalp with drier ends, which surprised me; I don't think of my scalp as oily. I'll be interested to see how my scalp feels and looks after using the shampoo for a while; I suspect I'll buy the shampoo for more normal hair when I use my current bottle up.
Apologies for the opening title - not sure what happened there except Miss London has been mucking about with iMovie.
The products I was given:
Bain TS: shampoo for oily scalp, drier ends. This smells of grapefruit (although it contains lime it definitely smells more grapefruity to me) and washes my hair without making it feel stripped. I wouldn't use it on fully coloured or bleached hair though. When I finish this I think I'll look into the Shampooing au Miel instead as I think that's a better fit for my scalp, which I consider to be more normal. My hair had been rained on when it was 'diagnosed' and I hadn't washed out other shampoo properly, which may have affected the reading. This is an excellent shampoo for an adolescent though: Miss London's scalp is starting to get slightly oily and this shampoo is perfect for her.
Masque Fleurs de Jasmin: thick, creamy conditioning treatment. Smells gloriously of (tea party) jasmine. I use a dab on the ends and mid lengths every wash as a conditioner.
Serum de Soie Subliminateur - a creamy fluid serum for every day use. This also smells of jasmine and leaves my hair looking and feeling smooth and well nourished. Good for all hair types except very dry and/or thick hair.
