I selected this product because of my sensitive scalp with occasional irritation. In additional, the humid tropical weather causes high perspiration especially during the day.

Application & Performance 

Before shampooing, brush dry hair to loosen dirt and disentangle. Once hair is wet, during application, it only requires a small amount as compared to your conventional shampoo. The scent strength is quite strong, however, it feels very relaxing and natural. Because of it contains mint, when apply on hair and massage on the scalp, there’s a cooling sensation. Washing off with cold water makes it even more refreshing. After the wash, the hair feels smooth and light. It’s able to wash off your standard hair styling products. The scent does stay awhile but I really didn’t mind. In fact, it’s a good scent for relaxation during the evenings.
