Review: BAWANG Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo & Conditioner

I'm pretty sure you know who Jackie Chan is, but do you know he's the brand ambassador for BAWANG hair care products? 
Okay, so I admit I chuckled a little when I heard the name of the brand. Bà wáng is actually how you pronounce 霸王 in Chinese, but in Bahasa Malaysia 'bawang' means onions, hence the amusement. I received this BAWANG Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo & Conditioner Pro Pack from HiShop to review, which includes a 200ml bottle of shampoo and a 80g tube of conditioner.

I'm pretty blessed to have inherited the 'thick and dark' hair gene from dad's side of the family, so the only problem I have with my hair is that it can get very frizzy and dry, not to mention I have an extremely hard time dyeing my hair lighter than dark brown. Anyway, I took this BAWANG shampoo + conditioner for a spin, and here are my thoughts. 

First of all, BAWANG's hair care range is all based on traditional Chinese herbs, so there's a fairly strong herbal scent, even before you take the bottles out from the box. After using the Atomy herbal shampoo for a while, I'm quite used to herbal scents, but I still can't say I like it very much. This BAWANG shampoo has a thick texture that lathers up well enough, though, and it works to cleanse my scalp without leaving it overly dry.

Next, the conditioner. I have fairly thick and chemically damaged hair so I end up using quite a lot of conditioner each time I wash my hair. The conditioner's texture is quite heavy and rich, with a much more pleasant herbal scent compared to the shampoo. After massaging it into the ends of my hair and leaving it for about 3-4 minutes, I rinsed it off and felt my hair was softer - so yes, the conditioner is okay too.

I do like that both products don't feel overly synthetic, and is packed with 100% natural herbal essences. It's also suitable for unisex use, and those who love herbal-scented products will definitely enjoy using this.
