Suigo Rose HairSpa Shampoo Treatment

Less than a couple of months ago I shared my review of a rather unique hair salon treatment by Suigo known as the Natural Infused HairSpa. If you missed that post I do recommend jumping back to read it because today I am going to give you my review of the at-home maintenance HairSpa products. The concept behind the Rose HairSpa is to clarify and cleanse the scalp so that oxygen and the nutrients of the hair products can reach deep down into hair follicles, rebuilding weak or damaged hair.

The at-home Rose HairSpa range consists of a Gentle Shampoo, Gentle Conditioner and Energy Hair Treatment. I decided to use just the shampoo and treatment because I have very fine hair and using a conditioner as well as a treatment would be too rich.

Occasionally I will get someone to do a treatment during a haircut appointment, but the health of my hair and scalp is never something I have been concerned with previously. For those of you who have been following this blog for a while, you may remember I started a quest earlier this year to thicken my limp, fine hair and to stop the shedding that would leave me knotted in a spiderweb of hair each time I washed it. Today I am here to tell you that I think I have found the solution to all my hair problems …. with Suigo!

Suigo (pronounced s-way-go) is a haircare and styling brand that was developed in Japan, but I had never heard of it until the Australian representative contacted me. After looking into what the rep claimed to be a revolutionary hair system, I thought it would be impossible to achieve the results they claimed. I am a realist but nevertheless I like to give new beauty inventions a try to see if the impossible could actually be possible. I will explain it further in my review but let me tell you now, I had to eat my words after experiencing it. AND I have a giveaway at the end so you can put your own hair to the test.
