Oily, damaged, or dry and itchy scalp are just some of the few hair conditions that we typically face on the daily. For most of us, we’d find ourselves sifting through bottles after bottles of new shampoo brands in high hopes of finding one that will save our long tresses. Heck, you might have scoured the shelves of your favourite drugstores and you’ve yet to find one that actually works.
As working women, we’d find ourselves knotted with busy schedules with less time spent on the TLC that we truly deserve. Deadlines, taking care of our families and other commitments are just some of the few things we’re all caught up with — all the more reasons why we’re spending lesser time taking care of our other qualms, say our hair concerns.
Truth is, we may never get around finding the right solution to our mane problems, especially when we have a hoard of options to choose from — but in the year 2019, you have the power to choose which ingredients you want to put on your body, and more notably, your hair. In other words: we found a range of new hair care solutions formulated with secret ingredients you never knew you needed that makes sure you don’t go into the new year with your crown looking like a hot mess.
YUNGO’S NEW ALL-IN-ONE HAIR CARE LINE
Unveiling its first-ever line which blends in an all-in-one hair treatment with an oriental complex, Yungo — a sub-brand of LG Household & Health Care from Korea — has released a lineup that’s focused on curating hair care solutions for the modern-day warrior in Singapore who’s always on the go. Forget about sitting in the shower as you impatiently lather through and wait for your tresses to soak up your treatment — now, you can do it all in one step, and nothing more.
SUITABLE FOR ALL HAIR TYPES
‘Nuff said — here, we’re revealing some of the most important ingredients you never knew you needed to add to your rotation, stat.
FOR THE ONES WITH OILY SCALP — CORDYCEPS
As mentioned on Healthline, “Cordyceps is a genus of parasitic fungi that grows on the larvae of insects,” — yikes! — although as gross as it sounds, these sworn-by fungi are actually one of the hero ingredients that saves your hair from the depths of despair!
Besides its potential of improving your heart rate, treat fatigue, sickness and a low sex drive, this ingredient also promises to cleanse, refresh and soothe, sensitive scalps — a great go-to, especially for dandruff-prone hair! Take, for instance, Yungo’s Scalp Care Cleansing Treatment from Korea, which moisturises, cools and calms sensitive, stuffy scalps!
FOR THE ONES WITH DULL, LIFELESS HAIR — GOLD
Truthfully speaking, it doesn’t have to be a head game if you know what you’re looking for, say for those with dull, lifeless hair.
Bring out the brilliance in your hair with a remarkable ingredient that speaks for itself — gold. Yes, we wouldn’t have thought we’d be lathering in luxury, but with properties that supports and protects active ingredients, resulting in intense shine and gloss, we’re pretty sure you’d want to be carting this out at your next your purchase.
FOR THE ONES WITH DRY, ITCHY SCALP — BIRD’S NEST
Choosing the right shampoo for someone with dry and itchy scalp can be a confusing endeavour. There’s literally an abundance of options in the market skim through — so what makes this one by Yungo any different?
First off, it contains Actistem Gold Extract (Swiflet Nest) and in laymen terms, they’re packed with amino acids which is an integral component in the make up of hair and skin. It also helps revitalise and refresh your scalp while providing moisture to reduce inflammation, that is to say, causes a dry and itchy scalp.
FOR THE ONES WITH DAMAGED HAIR — HORSE-OIL
There are several reasons why you might want to explore shampoos with ingredients that are somewhat unorthodox, say those with Horse-Oil in them. Let’s be real — you might have at least wondered why horses have such long, lustrous manes.
Reason being: ingredients like horse-oil, made with a blend of silk protein extracts, helps restore the shine in your hair (that you’ve probably lost from all the damage it’s been through), while nourishing, coating, and moisturising your locks — that will have you whipping your hair back and forth as the new year unfolds.
FOR THE ONES WITH FINE, FLAT HAIR — GINSENG
Anything with Ginseng is going to be a real treat for your skin and your hair — and this shampoo isn’t any less. Otherwise known as a popular ingredient that boosts hair growth and volume, the Royal Ginseng Volume Cleansing Treatment works to give strength to weak, lifeless hair that nourishes, strengthens, improves elasticity and root vitality — which works perfectly well for those who are planning to grow out their hair.
FOR THE ONES WITH UNMANAGEABLE HAIR — HERBAL AND LOTUS EXTRACTS
Find yourself caught in a knot? No doubts here, but we can all agree that growing out your hair can be a pain sometimes. Dealing with frizz (no thanks to our humid weather), detangling it after a wash, and the list goes on…
To keep your Rapunzel-like hair in check, consider this: Yungo’s First Total Care Cleansing Treatment. Aside from delivering radiance, and 100-hour moisture — which may seem pretty insane to some — this new hair treatment has also been said to cleanse your scalp while strengthening your hair follicles with the help of its formula — made with herbal components and Lotus extract!
Yungo Hair Care is available online at guardian.com.sg and exclusively in Singapore at 44 selected Guardian outlets. Prices range from $24 to $29.
