Haircare πŸ’†πŸ» | Free Lucido-L sample!

(Sponsored product – review is entirely my own)

Every now and then, I get some questions asking me about my haircare routine, like how do I keep my hair looking so healthy even after all the chemical treatments, or what do I apply before/after using heating tools... and to be honest, I don’t do much apart from my usual application of hair oil at night πŸ™ˆ

#lazygirl

One of the hair oils I’ve been regularly using is the Lucido-L Argan Oil EX Oil (Pink).

I really dislike if my hair ends feel really icky after applying serums/oils, so I’ve been sticking with this particular one as it keeps my hair ends free from tangles, while feeling so light and moisturized! ✨

Plus, the smell… just puts me in a good mood especially when I’m headed to bed πŸ’†πŸ»

And since I’m down to the last drops of my EX oil, I’m happy that I got my hands on the ✨newest✨ Lucido-L Argan Oil Essence Charge, thanks to Jinni from Mandom! 😘

It comes in a new Turquoise colour to distinguish it from the EX Oil in Pink, and I think they really have a good eye when it comes to choosing colours.

It’s so eye-catching and something I’d definitely check out while browsing in stores 😍

I was surprised to find that the new Essence Charge comes in a plastic bottle, compared to the glass bottle that the EX Oil comes in, but I guess this is definitely more travel-friendly! βœˆοΈπŸ’Ό Safer too!

Apart from that, the new Essence Charge has another H U G E difference which you’ll know as soon as you press the pump…

Because it’s in the serum texture!

I did a side-by-side comparison and found myself wow-ing at the obvious difference 😱

The Essence Charge has a more jelly/gel-like texture, while the EX Oil is fluid.

πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

I was initially apprehensive about the new jelly texture and wondered if it would make my hair clump together, or look streaky but phew! that wasn’t the case at all.

All it takes is one pump to release just the right amount of serum, followed by a quick rub between my palms (I like to do that to warm it up and to spread it evenly), before applying it to my hair ends.

It’s best to use it on towel-dried hair both day & night, before using any heated tools (because it has heat protection!), but I do prefer to use it after lightly drying my hair at night before I sleep so I can wake up to beautiful, shiny and well-moisturized hair! Hehe πŸ’πŸ»

Here’s how I do it:

I finger-comb through the bottom half of my hair to moisturize the strands well.

As a rule of thumb, I start finger-combing through the hair past my ear level and downwards.

My hair strands are usually more tangled and dry there πŸ˜– I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!

I use the remaining serum left on my palms to smoothen my hair downwards, concentrating on the ends, ensuring it’s well moisturized and protected πŸ€—

So at a glance, here’s the before & after look at my hair!

B E F O R E

This was straight after I used my Dafni Heated Hair Brush to give my hair a quick comb through, just to combat my crazy bed head.

My hair ends look obviously frizzy and dry. I didn’t use the Essence Charge the night before, just to show how it looks in its natural state haha it's terrifying right 😟

A F T E R

One light pump and application of the Essence Charge serum helped G R E A T L Y with the frizz! 😯 This difference was definitely not visible to me until I did this comparison.

Holy moly, now I’m even more impressed than I already was haha! πŸ˜… I definitely like my hair much more after applying the serum, and, it smells divine too πŸ‘ƒπŸ»βœ¨

Zooming in even closer! πŸ”Ž

My hair really just looks so much healthier and softer… doesn’t it? πŸ™‡πŸ»‍♀️ Pictures don’t lie!

So yes! ✌🏻

That’s my “secret” to how I keep my hair looking so shiny and healthy even after all the chemical treatments I put it through haha πŸ˜†

My bottle of EX Oil last me a year or so (I don’t use much, my hair gets oily real easily), so I think this new bottle of Lucido-L Argan Oil Essence Charge will be a damn good investment! ☺️

Toby's so big now 😭 he's becoming a real handsome lad.

Me: Toby, make friends with Totoro
Toby: Must I, really? πŸ˜•

Me proceeded to bite the shit out of Totoro, my other cat toy, and Pusheen after this. Toby does not like competition!!!!

First time popping by Birds of Paradise for icecream 🍦 it was just too hot yesterday!!! So happy that it rained last evening and this morning briefly.

Definitely helped a little with the heat.

I'm usually a cup kinda person, but we were convinced by the staff's claim that the cone is really good πŸ˜‚

Turns out she was right - it's a thyme cone and the waffle batter is a little sweet, especially with the icecream.

I had the Vanilla Fig flavour and I enjoyed it thoroughly! X enjoyed the various interesting flavours but went with hazelnut in the end 🀦🏻‍♀️ I don't get it lol

One moment it's this...

And the next, it's this ☺️

I really love sunsets the best!

notoriginal @gilliansng I went looking for it at my local Watsons & Guardian here but sadly we haven't received it yet haha. Made me really want to try out the Essence Charge but couldn't find it so I just tried their normal pink one anyway πŸ˜‚ and really liked how it felt on my hair. Might cave in and get that instead πŸ€”
