Review
Even though I have oily scalp and hair, I would sometimes use hair care and treatments for the damaged hair because I often bleach and dye my hair.
And so this Nutrition & Care Shampoo comes in handy for my dry hair ends.

Nutrition & Care Shampoo Ingredients.

Pour out type shampoo bottle.

The shampoo smells really good, it smells like a very sweet ripe mango. I'm liking the scent of it everytime I shampoo my hair. ^_^
I use this Nutrition & Care Shampoo during occasions when my hair is not too oily, because my black hair has grown to a length of about 10cm+, so my scalp and black hair area are getting more and more oily. I couldn't afford to use this shampoo everyday as my scalp will oil up really quickly within hours and my hair on the crown will go flat and limp.
On the other side, when I shampoo onto my hair ends it feel perfect. It gives just enough moisture to prepare it for the conditioning step.
It is not oily and cleanses decently but it's definitely not for people with oily scalp or hair unless the hair has been dyed or bleached to an extend that it lacks moisture, feels dry and frizzy.


As for its partner the Nutrition & Care Conditioner, it smells exactly the same. Difference is that the cap is at the bottom.

Nutrition & Care Conditioner Ingredients.

The conditioner is pretty lightweight, doesn't feel greasy at all and its consistency is like a gel-cream.
I reaaaalllyyy like the conditioner! I only use it on my hair ends and it make them look pretty tamed and look less bed-head.
Normally a conditioner for dry damaged hair would feel greasy and makes my hair look like it just got rebonded, but this one won't! I'm not saying that this conditioner doesn't make my hair feel smooth.. it does but it isn't greasy at all and doesn't make my hair go all limp after it's dried too.
The difficult part however is to get the conditioner onto my hair. Even though I'm just applying on my hair ends which is a pretty short/small area, I need to use quite alot of conditioner. Say, about 2 to 3 x 50cents size? I smeared it all over the hair ends but they don't feel smooth immediately, it take a few strokes before the hair takes in the conditioner and then after a few more seconds, I can feel the smoothness. Sometimes I might even need to pump more conditioner to make it feel smoother. Great part is the non-greasy, smooth and tamed hair result.


Aside from the Nutrition & Care range, I'm also using the Balance & Care Shampoo for Dry Dandruff which I received from Watsons.
As I'd said, I got oily scalp and hair, but I don't have dandruff (at least for now *touchwood*). Even if I have, it is usually very minor and it is caused by the sebum accumulating underneath the dead skin cells which means mine would be oily dandruff. I suppose to use the other one that is meant for my scalp type but well, I'm given this so I thought I'll just try it! ^_^ hehehex~

The shampoo consistency is slightly thicker than Nutrition & Care Shampoo. It has light minty scent.
This shampoo works slightly better than Nutrition & Care Shampoo as it cleanses my scalp a little bit better by removing the extra sebum from my scalp and hair. I find that it is however still pretty moisturising comparing to shampoos targeted for oily hair. My hair still turn oily pretty fast so this shampoo is also not for my scalp & hair type. I REALLY need to get a shampoo that is for oily scalp & hair now! Lolx~

The shampoos foam up easily by adding a bit of water to it and they are really easy to shampoo without much hair tugging. Both the shampoos I'd use are not meant for oily scalp and hair type, so do consider about your type before purchasing one.
