KA’FEN: Hair Care Series & Shower Gel Review

Last year, I was sent a brand package of hair care products with a shower gel for review and because it’s a range of products, it took me awhile to test them all out properly to write my experience with it.
Now, I’m glad to announce that I’m ready to share!
kafen hair oil
The brand  is KA’FEN, established in 2010 with the aim to deliver the best haircare product to all, is very popular in Taiwan.With more than 3 decades in the salon industry, KA’FEN has been through the changes in the industry and still continues to strive and produce haircare products of the highest quality standards. KA’FEN’s research and development have created a haircare product that revives the hair’s vitality, locks-in the moisture and nourishes the hair to fight against environmental damages.
KA’FEN’s shampoo and treatment does not contain dimethicone which will clog up the hair pores if it is not washed away throughly. KA’FEN’s Impression series unique hyaluronic acid moisturising factor has a softening effect to balance the scalp oil secretion, reduce scalp discomfort, effectively relieve and improve dry scalp. These help to maintain the scalp in a healthy state and at the same time increase hair softness.
Sounds really wonderful, doesn’t it?

I’ve got nothing negative to write about this shower gel. I love how it leaves skin scented and cleansed without drying out my skin, it’s free from SLS so that’s good. Overall, the ingredients are friendly and I have no negative experience from using this. It smells great to the point where I walked out of the shower and my mum asked, “what’s that smell? So nice” and I told her that it’s my shower gel and she ended using it too~ Haha!

It does work as claimed, my hair is more manageable after use. I find that it helps to keep split ends at bay and my hair appears stronger after use. The scent of this is nice, as with all KA’FEN products but the scent doesn’t last long.

Product Rating: 7/10

As a shampoo, this works well at cleansing without the squeaky sensation. However, as with the other shampoos, I find that it leaves the hair scented for a short duration only. I have a pretty oily scalp (who doesn’t in a climate like Singapore) and I find that while it does remove the oiliness after washing, it doesn’t help to make a significant improvement at reducing sebum production on my scalp.

Permed/Colored Hair Shampoo

This shampoo helps to repair cuticles that were damaged by chemicals, and balance the pH level of the scalp in-order to amplify the new hair color, and leaves a protective coating to prevent color fading, and keep hair silky, smooth and soft texture after perming. It is also formulated to rejuvenate the inner hair structure so that it feels light on the root and nourished at the ends for a sumptuously soft and wavy hair; and contains active wheat protein, amino acid, and anti-UV mask and pigment motes to prevent ultraviolet radiation from harming the color of the hair and slow down the fading of the color.
Suitable for people with coloured and permed hair.

I saw no difference in the vibrancy of my hair colour after use, but I have to note that it helps to maintain the condition and health of my hair despite being bleached in certain parts. The scent doesn’t seem to last for long too.

This really works well at untangling knots and always leaves my hair feeling soft after use despite how light this treatment feels. I had hairspray and my hair was backcombed for a shoot recently, and I was surprised to note how easy I managed to untangle the knots with the use of this. I love this treatment!

I love this! It really helps to keep my hair tangle free, and trust me… that’s a challenging thing to accomplish with the amount of hair I have.This oil helps to freshen up the scent of my hair too after a long hot day, if you know what I mean… without leaving the hair greasy. I like the smell of this! I find that this also helps to tame my frizz and nourish the bleached parts of my hair to prevent tangles too!The best part is that it doesn’t leave the hands feeling oily or sticky after applying it to the hair, this oil gets absorbed really quickly!
