Product Review from Hong Kong Fashion Geek
Ok so I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to organic things. My mom went through an organic phase where she only bought organic vegetables and while I did think it tasted better, I was more inclined to think that it was the placebo effect more than anything. So anyway, this whole spiel was to tell you how I was not convinced when my friend Angela opened up an organic skincare shop online called Little Things In Life and started sprouting terms about how her skin was all dewy and hair silky soft.
Given that I’ve been particularly stressed lately with hair that just felt gross, she essentially passed me the 迷迭香及香草滋潤洗髮劑（Rosemary & Vanilla Moisturizing Shampoo） and Orange & Rosemary Nourishing Hair Mask from The Victorian Garden, ordered me to stick to the regime as my hair will probably detox (more on that later) and told me that I will be grateful two weeks later. (She may sound a bit bossy here but we’ve known each other literally all our lives so she’s entitled.)
Anyway, three weeks later, (two weeks of trial + one week of procrastination) here I am writing a post saying yes I’m convinced and in the process learnt that hair can detox and that the reason my hair was kinda gross was that my non-organic shampoo has silicon derivatives that basically coated my hair with plastic and was weighing it down.
So what is hair detox? Throughout the two weeks, it was hard not to reach for my non-organic shampoo as my hair started feeling like a wad of weeds, was super rough and tangled. That apparently is the detoxing phase. However, I sucked it up and now find that my hair is lighter, doesn’t get oily as easily and generally getting compliments from people about how nice my hair looks. Sidenote: hair detox apparently is different from juice detox. Once you’re done, you can’t go back to junk food or in this case, shampoo with silicon elements. The good thing is, you probably wouldn’t want to go back to silicon based products. The products don't come cheap but I find that I’m using less of it and it actually lasts me quite a decent amount of time making it worth it in the long run.
我對於有機產品抱有一點懷疑。有機產品中，母親只會購買有機蔬菜，而我覺得它們比較美味，但我想這是源於心理作用多於事實。無論如何，我都是想告訴你們我是如何不被「有機產品」說服的。但直至友人Angela開設有機護膚產品的網上商店Little Things In Life，我才開始去了解她皮膚柔軟潤澤的原因。
當時我因髮質粗糙的問題而感到困擾，而Angela則給了兩款Victoria Garden的有機產品我使用，分別是迷迭香及香草滋潤洗髮劑（Rosemary & Vanilla Moisturizing Shampoo）和橙及迷迭香滋養頭髮面膜（Orange & Rosemary Nourishing Hair Mask）。她吩咐我只要跟從當中的保養方法，兩星期後，我一定會高興（雖然她像愛發號施令般，但因為我們十分了解彼此的生活，所以她是有資格如此的吩咐我，而我的頭髮亦在兩星期後真的改善了！）。
