Swedish mane lavish

early of this year, i tried a new shampoo and conditioner for my newly rebonded hair. i went to Beauty Language at Bukit Panjang Plaza (Singapore) and the sales attendant recommended me the Swedish brand called Reference.

at first, i was skeptical because i haven't heard of it and the packaging is a li'l intimidating. but i wanted to discover new products as well so said to myself why not. i didn't regret buying it, i loved it until i finished it. btw, the SA recommended the 443 series which is more on moisturizing dry and damaged hair.

what the shampoo promises:

Reference Hair Moisture Shampoo/443

i haven't been impressed with shampoo and conditioner products in a long, long time and this definitely made me very happy. after each wash, what it does to my hair is make it supple, shiny and in very good shape. i remember i already have been rebonded for over 3 months and one friend commented that my hair looked absolutely great. it helps in keeping my mane look straight without weighing it down - just brilliant. another plus is that it doesn't have that commercial sweet, fruity or even weird, medicine-like smell usually associated with salon brands but just hints of freshness with its aroma.

i understand this is sold in all Beauty Language outlets all over Singapore. not sure if they are sold elsewhere because from the company website it's identified as the sole distributor. other distributors in Asia are in Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan.

have you pampered your mane lately in the shower?
