Everyone wants to have a silky hair and solve all hair problems. I, too, cannot escape from hair problems which eventually degrade my confidence level when in public. I hate the fact that my hair is not as bouncy as others, and it does make me look quite old because of my hair is so lifeless. Besides, I am having problem dealing with dandruff that using anti-dandruff shampoo made my hair tangled and unmanageable. Anyway, today’s post is about Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing and Shampoo, a popular hair product from Japan.
I usually use shampoo that does not contain silicone or dimethicone, but the result has always been disappointed as my hair turned into frizzy the minute I rinsed off the shampoo residues. I recently read an article that cheap silicone-free shampoo uses oil-based cleaning ingredients that contains strong detergency effect, which, washed off the oil necessary for hair that lead to sustained damage because the absence of surface that protect the hair.
I have dry and damaged hair from colour treatment. I also have problem with dandruff. I went to hair salon to get my hair treatment which is twice a month. I had to set a budget of MYR300 per month and 5-hour total of hair pampering session per month. I found it is quite hassle as I hate getting myself in the salon for more than 30 minutes. I have to admit that I can be very impatient, that I slowly become tired getting hair treatment at the salon. So, my hair become limp, lifeless and to my irk, more split ends. Argh!
I went to look around for a better shampoo that helps me to solve the my hair problems until I found this Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing Shampoo (Le ment 碳酸精油洗髮精) which uses Carbonic Acid. I was very impressed this is a real advanced shampoo as it claimed to have high concentration of carbonic shampoo with ultra-fine foam that can penetrate deep into hair follicles. So, I went to search over the Internet for more information about this so-called ‘Carbonic Acid’.
Here are some facts about Carbonic Acid which I found on the Internet:
- Carbonic Acid is wildly popular in Japan and has got a host of benefits.
- Carbonic Acid helps to eliminate oil and chemical residue.
- Carbonic Acid resets alkali to provide healthy hair.
- Carbonic Acid generates a healthier scalp and hair that allows both coloured and permed hair to show a better effect.
This is great because there is no need to use Cola or Apple Cider Vinegar to rinse my hair anymore – I can simply ditch that DIY remedy which never helped me solve my hair issue, anyway. Now, I can simply use Carbonic Acid shampoo for my hair. So, I went to place order from this online shop which has tons of beauty and health products from Japan. The price is quite expensive but I found this is much cheaper than spending so much time and money in the salon. I really hope there is a salon around Kota Kinabalu that offers Carbonic Acid treatment soon. (I couldn’t find one at the time of this article is written)
Upon receiving Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing and Shampoo, I went straight to the bathroom because I was so excited to try this hair shampoo. It comes in a long slim pump bottle which I find it is very convenient with a better control when pumping out the product. Moreover, it’s travel-friendly especially when I need to bring along during outstation.
UV rays, air conditioning, stress, and even aging are the main contributors to hair damage. So, in order to prevent further damage, it is advisable to maintain the health of the scalp and hair as soon as possible. Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing and Shampoo uses low irritation and mild Amino Acid wash ingredients for scalp and hair which repair the cuticle while shampooing, that is why Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing Shampoo is different from other carbonated shampoo which cause frizzy hair. It contains Argan oil, Baobab oil, Lipidure, Keratin and Fullerene, which makes it very moisturising yet not heavy in the hair.
I have to do is to shake the bottle before dispensing an amount of fine and bouncy foam. Since my hair is long, so I had to pump about 2 times, or should I say the size of 2 ping pong balls? The foam has a thick consistency in which I find it is quite interesting. Carbonic Acid in the form of a bouncy foam. It creates more foam as I massage it onto my hair and scalp. I feel so nice as I only need small amount of it to cover all my hair easily.
Le ment Sparkling Oil Cleansing and Shampoo has a very subtle Jasmine scent and I love it so much! It leaves my scalp fresh, and my hair feels lighter and bouncier. It does not weight down the hair. I love this shampoo because it can be paired up with any conditioner or hair mask.
Although the bottle is considered as small as it only contains 200 grams, but this can last up to a month. It’s all depending on the length. As for me, just 2 pumps are enough to cover my whole hair. I usually use this twice a week as ‘deep cleanse’ and pair this with regular shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask. It contains highly concentrated carbonation that deep cleanses the pores and draws out impurities that normal shampoo cannot do.
This is a very effective shampoo that does what it claims. I highly recommend you to try this out if you want to have a nice, bouncier, and healthy hair. I would repurchase this again as I can actually cut cost on hair treatment in which I can now do this at home, well, probably going to hit the salon twice in every 3 months perhaps? 🙂
Does it actually work? Absolutely.
