Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! I’m sure that a lot of people are busy celebrating and on holidays – which I am unfortunately not because we don’t really have festivities here in Australia. However, it is a good time to step back from a lot of the work and spend time with your family, so this review is going to be short, sweet and straight to the point.
Today, I’m looking at La’dor’s hair treatment – Perfect Fill Up – that was sent to me for review by BeautyNetKorea. This is a super affordable and simple product that is said to repair damaged hair and, in a few repeated uses, even return your hair to its natural condition. Although my hair has been bleached and lightened a couple of times (colours in the past year from ranged from brown, pink, khaki brown (a personal favourite) and my accidental case of green), it isn’t in its worst condition.
However, it is still a far cry from my original hair – the strands have become thinner, more prone to kinks and easier to snap. I have tried out the following hair treatment and definitely saw results though I haven’t used it enough to judge whether it is strong enough to completely fix my hair.
If you’re interested in trying to product, just go to BeautyNetKorea‘s website. These tubes are really affordable and you only need one (short hair can also use half a bottle) for each application. They can be bought in sets of seven for USD $10.44 or USD$2.75 each.
This product contains protein, collagen, ceramide and silk amino acid which work together to balance and lock in moisture in your hair to revive, strengthen and promote elasticity. This product can also be mixed in with hair dye to prevent damage – especially useful for people who bleach or box dye at home. It is supposed to be like an at-home salon treatment.
Instructions are as follows:
- Mix 1:1 with cold water
- Stir well until it becomes a cream-like formula
- Apply evenly on hair and cover with a vinyl cap (whether you apply heat is up to you – I didn’t)
- Rinse and style (do not shampoo)
I like the simplicity of the instructions, which makes it easy even for a beginner like myself. I’m not very good with hair so I often just leave it until it’s time to cut it all off (which I might be doing soon). There was no noticeable scent when I used the product and it was really easy to apply. Although it states that it turns into a cream, the formula is still a little bit runny so it is best to apply this over the sink. One tube was a little bit too much for my hair and I could have used half or three quarters but, since I had already mixed it, I just lathered it up a little more.
I focused the product on the ends of my hair which is more damaged from bleaching and dying. Here’s for the before and after photos (after photos have been blow dried):
As you can see, my hair is very noticably softer and smoother after the treatment. This product left no greasy residue – which was going to be my main concern – and, with a single application, maintained that smoothness for a couple of days. I’m very tempted to buy a bunch of these after I next dye my hair so that I can use them for an entire week. Although I definitely saw immediate results, I wasn’t able to test the long term effects of the product.
SO WHAT IS IT?
An at-home hair treatment for damage repair
- Simple instructions with minimal ingredients
- Easy to apply and spread
- No noticeable scent
- Super affordable
- Immediately effective
- High concentration of nutrients (and a tiny tube)
- Travel friendly
- Requires multiple uses for long term effects
WOULD I REPURCHASE?
It is definitely tempting! As I don’t use many hair treatments, I think that I will try some others before possibly returning to this. I am planning on cutting and dying my hair again in Korea so I think I will need to invest in some regular hair treatments to ensure that it doesn’t thin out anymore. At current, I think I only have half of the hair volume I used to!
Do this all in the bathroom because it can definitely get messy!
If your hair is shorter or you are unsure of how much you need, mix up half a tube hair and only mix up the second half if you need more. The formula is very concentrated and spreadable – especially with damp hair – so a small amount goes a long way.
