The Gift of Healthy ‘Crowning Glory’ Fit for the Queen this Mother’s Day

CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanayinay‘naymama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

Motherhood is a tough 24-hour job, no pay, no day off, sometimes it is unappreciated, but yet resignation is impossible. A mother is a woman created by God to bring love, joy, happiness and care to this world, to every families. I am so glad God has created a woman to be a mother, even though motherhood is a full time job, a mother’s work is never done.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

The Miracle that Pantene Pro-V 3MM Conditioner Brings

It’s been a while since I last get some products to try from Sample Room PH. What I love with Sample Room is that they give people the privilege to try various products for free. This time, I requested for Pantene products. So, after 3 days, I received the 3 items: Pantene Hair Fall Shampoo, Pantene Hair Fall Conditioner and Pantene 3MM Miracle Conditioner.

I’ve been using a different brand for the longest time and I want to give this a shot. The first item I tried is the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Hair Fall Conditioner.

It’s tagline of 3 minute miracle is really catchy and everyone will surely get curious about this product. Even I. Miracle? Okay, I’ll see what would happen…

 

Since I have a long hair, I put an ample amount on my palm. Consistency-wise, I’m impressed that it is not thick BUT also not flowy. You may say it’s just right!

 

 

I distributed the conditioner evenly on my hair and left it for 3 minutes.

Dum di dum dum… 😊

 

Three minutes has passed, I rinsed it off. Right there and then, I felt the lightness it brought to my hair. Amazing! It doesn’t felt sticky as compared with the other brands with which you can feel the oiliness of your hair up to your face. Can you relate?

 

Another factor I like about this product is the hair fall result. With the previous brand that I’ve been using, I am able to collect a crazy amount of hair after rinsing. But with this “miracle” conditioner, lesser hair fall can really be seen. I think I only got two or three strands.

In addition, the fragrance it brings to my hair is beyond expectation. Overall, the product did it’s job very well. And my hair? It’s STUNNING!

Ready for work! Until next time! 😊

REVIEW: Mischka Intense Hair Moisture (Hair Treatment)

One of my “first-world” (insert laugh here) problems is having a dry hair. (Haha!) It is because I often have my hair dyed. Yeah, it’s nice to have a colored hair but it is hard to manage when it became dry and frizzy.

 

Yesterday, I received a package from Mischka Derma Secret. One of the products I got is the Intense  Hair Moisture (Hair Treatment). And I said, “Wow, this is very timely for my crazy hair!” 🙂

 

PACKAGING
What I like…
 
> The packaging is cute…very feminine.
> It has the product details and directions for use on its cover.
> At the back, you can see the content/ingredients, the manufacturing and expiry date. It’s informative and you don’t need to worry on when it’ll expire because these important information are already shown on its label.

Room for improvement…
 
> Since the directions for use includes rinsing with water, I need to place this in our bathroom, therefore it is expected to get wet while in use. However, the label is not waterproof. When it gets wet, it dissolves: the letter/writings and the sticker itself.
> The ink from the label stains your fingers, too.
> Misspelled word on the label: Itense – Intense.

These are only minor things though, but still can help for their products’ packaging especially if they are targetting for export quality.
CONTENT
What I like…
 
> The consistency is not too thick and not too thin. It is creamy and not flowy.

 

> It smells great!
> It’s like a hair spa treatment. I love the result. You can feel the softness of your hair after use. And your hair feels light too! (Magaan talaga, yung pakiramdam na para kang bagong gupit. Hehe!)
*Insert song here*
