[REVIEW] Innisfree My Hair Recipe Repairing Conditioner

Innisfree My Hair Recipe Repairing Conditioner Review:

Other than my problematic skin, another thing that irks me is my hair. Healthy tresses are no less important than good skin. Unfortunately, by my own doing, my hair is rather damaged after many years of rebonding, perming and colouring.  It has not helped that I had not done much aftercare to my hair after every salon procedures in the past. You know this thing about being young and thinking you are invincible? Well, so now I face the woes of lack luster hair.

Sometime this year, Innisfree launched a new line of haircare called My Hair Recipe. There are a few series for this line – Moisturizing (for dry hair), Repairing (for damaged hair), Colour Care (for coloured hair) and Curl Up (for wavy hair). So I thought I will give it a try.

Claims:

♥ A dense hair conditioner with a healthy, enriched recipe to deeply nourish damaged hair.

♥ The natural protein from Jeju soybean complex provides radiance and elasticity to the hair.

♥ Its smooth-fitting texture allows it to be quickly absorbed into the hair.

♥ An oil complex of argan, jojoba and macadamia delivers intense nourishment to rough and lackluster hair.

Ingredients:

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sorbitol, Dipropylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Glycine, Soja (Soybean) Protein, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Orchid Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Glycolipids, Glycogen, Glutamic Acid, Disodium Edta, Lysine Hcl, Lactic Acid, Mannitol, Butylene Glycol, Serine, Sucrose, Citrulline, Amodimethicone, Alanine, Arginine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Isopropyl Alcohol, Threonine, Trideceth-10, Propanediol, Pca, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Histidine Hcl, 1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

How to use:

1. Dry your hair with a towel after shampooing and apply an appropriate amount on the hair, especially on the ends and avoid the scalp.

My Hair Type: Coarse, Frizzy, Coloured Hair and Oily Scalp

Innisfree My Hair Recipe Repairing Conditioner Review:

This conditioner comes in a simple, no-frills tube. There are English instructions on it, thus easier for non-Korean user. And with the slightly translucent tube, you will be able to see how much of the product is left. You do not need a lot each time of washing as it spreads well, so I do expect it to last for some time.

It is free of silicon, mineral oil and synthetic colours. Silicones are often found in hair products to give them the sleek and shiny look. In recent years, there are many claims that silicones are bad for the hair because they build up in the hair over time thus hampering your hair moisture-retaining ability which result in dry and dull hair or even cause clogged hair follicles.

I have yet to make my conclusion on this as I have also come across opposing views. So in this sense, I am less fussy about whether a product contains silicones. But it will be good news for those of you who are more cautious.

Camellia is featured prominently in the ingredient list. Apparently, Camellia has been used for hair treatments since ancient times in China and Japan.  It is said to contain valuable vitamins A, B & E for hair which help to moisturise and lock in water, prevent hair greying and ageing as well as reduce frizz.

Despite its silicon-free formula, its texture is similar to other conditioners I had used. It gives a “slippery’ feel and smooth down your hair. But it is not heavy.

Previously, I had experience with another brand of conditioner that is so waxy I just feel it never really gets wash off thoroughly. It seemed to leave behind a layer of film. Perhaps it was meant to seal in the moisture, but I did not like the heavy feel it gave.

I do not follow the directions given to towel dry my hair before applying the conditioner. Instead I squeeze out as much residue water as I can after shampooing before applying the conditioner.

With this Innisfree conditioner, it washes off well and leaves a nice scent. Because of my oily scalp, at times in extremely hot weather, there could be an “oily smell” that I get on my fingers if I touch my hair. I am not sure if it is so strong that others around me could smell it because no one has commented on this. On using the Innisfree conditioner, I find that there is lesser of this embarrassing smell on my fingers if I do run them through my hair.

The conditioner does not totally get rid of the frizz, but it does make my hair feels soft to the touch. To be fair, I have yet to come across any conditioner that has been able to calm my frizzy hair.

I have yet to decide if I will repurchase after finishing this tube. I like that it is not heavy and has a nice scent. However, for the price and non-exceptional performance, I should be able to get something else at a lower price.
