Since I bought the shampoo, of course I also got the conditioner! I was hoping to get the maximum effect upon using the 2 of them together.
Meet the Professional PRO Keratin Moisture Rinse.
What? A rinse? Apparently in Korean brands, they call conditioner as rinse. It also came as a surprise to me, but when I looked at the other Korean stores, they were all labeled the same.
Nature Republic claims that:
Professional Pro Intensive Care Rinse
This moisturizing rinse contains the amino substance of phyto-keratin, which supplies nutrition to the hair, leaving your hair soft and shiny. The ingredient of flag iris makes hair moist, healthy, and voluminous
This keratin rinse supplies moisture and nutrients to dry and damaged hair. this moisturizing rinse contains the amino substance of phyto-keratin, which supplies nutrition to the hair, leaving your hair soft and shiny. The ingredient of flag iris makes hair moist, healthy, and voluminous
How to use: After shampooing the hair, apply an appropriate amount to your hair. Massage and wash off with lukewarm water.
I got the rinse for P495 (roughly at $11). It came in at 500 ml, like the shampoo. Same price, same volume. Even the packaging and bottle is the same!
So nothing new. It’s packaged in a pump bottle. The pump didn’t give me a hard time dispensing the product even if the consistency of the rinse was a lot thicker.
As for the product, I wasn’t able to snap a photo. Just like the shampoo counterpart, it is milky white, but with a very much thicker consistency. It didn’t have anything special over other conditioners in terms of consistency and color. It also doesn’t lather up. As for the smell, it smelled better than the shampoo – lighter and more fragrant, no alcohol scent, pleasing, and has this salon scent. The scent stays until noon, even if I partner it with another shampoo.
In terms of effect, it wasn’t a match. This conditioner made my hair oily by noon, even my face! When I would use this, I have to use my facial wash after I rinse it off since it’s so oily. I also noticed I began to have acne at the same time I would use this (after a few days). Hey, at least it didn’t make my hair dry. There were a few days that I forgot to use the conditioner and only my old, non-Korean shampoo (I can be that lazy at times), and my officemate commented that my hair was actually better that day and even asked if I did something to my hair.
Would I repurchase this? Definitely not. I was hoping I would run out soon so I won’t have to use this again. Ugh. Perhaps for those with dry hair and normal to dry skin would appreciate this more. But if you have oily hair issues, and combi to oily, or even sensitive skin, please do stay clear.
And today marks the day I finally finished this bottle. So happy! I can move out of this line and to my next shampoo for review.
