Dermal Red Ginseng Collagen Essence Mask:

I’ve never used a Red Ginseng sheet mask before — first time. =) I didn’t enjoy using this sheet mask. The fragrance bothered me soo much. I couldn’t stand the smell of the sheet mask. It did help to moisturize my skin though. I wouldn’t want to use it ever again due to the annoying fragrance.

Recommend? No, it’s not for me.

Dermal Gold Collagen Essence Mask:

The Gold sheet mask moisturized and brightened my skin. I love it. It didn’t feel heavy on the skin. Very lightweight. I love how it sinks into the skin wonderfully. The idea of having ‘gold’ in a sheet mask feels quite amazing. I would buy this one again. I enjoyed using it.

Recommend? Yes.

Love, Jen

I chopped off my long hair! + Hair Care Routine

Leave a comment

Yesterday, I thought, hey, maybe it’s time to cut off my locks. I took a pair of scissors and there you go — it happened. Yes, everyone, I cut my own hair. I’ve been doing it for years. I’ve been practicing for 10+ years already from bangs, layers, blunt cuts. People have asked, “How do you make it even?” All I can say is, practice, practice, and practice some more. If you can’t, go to the salon. 🙂

It’s not the shortest, but I think I chopped off 12+ inches of my hair! I didn’t keep track. Still, it was a lot. My head felt sooo much lighter. My hair looked cleaner. No more dry hair and split ends! I’m very happy about it! It’s much easier to wash and style too. I’m actually very excited about it. I thought about coloring my hair, but I don’t know. It’s such a huge commitment to change the color. I’ve dyed my hair blonde, ash brown, brown, blue black, red, whatever color before. It’s very high maintinence. That’s not something I want in my life right now. I want to wake up and go!

*Hare Care Routine*

Here’s my hair care routine. I use a multiple of hair care products. I don’t stick to one thing. If something doesn’t work, I just move onto something new.

I have two sets of shampoo & conditioner. The first one is…

*The Original Mane ‘n Tail Herbal Gro Shampoo & Conditioner*

It’s been about at least 1 month of using this shampoo & conditioner. I’ve been using this one more often. It’s not my favorite, but the product comes in larger bottles. I’m trying to use it all. The reason why I don’t like it that much is that it weighs my hair down. Otherwise, it does a great job at preventing my hair from breaking and moisturizes it. I’ve experienced less hair fall out after using it. I could perhaps use it 1-3 times a week and swap it with another shampoo and conditioner. This leads to my other set of shampoo & conditioner.

*Maui Moisture Detoxifying Shampoo & Conditioner*

This shampoo does a better job at removing excess oils and giving my hair more volume. I really like it. It removes oil and debris very well without stripping the hair of natural oils. The conditioner, on the other hand, it’s not for me. From my experience, it’s too heavy for my hair. It makes my hair look flat afterwards, so I only use it on my ends. I will most likely not purchase it again.

Other hair care products

*Trader Joe’s Organic Argan Oil*

I use Organic Argan Oil on my hair and skin. I only dispense 1 drop for my hair, since the oil weighs my hair down. For my skin, I dispense 1-3 drops. I like Organic Argan Oil. It hydrates my hair and skin. I just have to use it sparingly like any other oil. By the way, Organic Argan Oil is amazing at moisturizing eyelashes. I’ve noticed that my eyelashes are stronger and has lengthened! Try it!

That is my hair care routine. I hope you all enjoyed it. If you have any questions, leave a comment. Ask away! 😊

Love, Jen
