So recently my hair’s been falling out like crazy. I don’t know what are the factors that led to that, maybe hormonal or the fact that we moved to China to a very different climate and the food there is different, too…I’m not sure. The fact is that my hair has been falling out lately really a lot, like never before so I decide to Google some stuff and found out about Chinese brand Bawang. This is a herbal brands, all the products are based on herbs. So clearly my problem has been hair loss so I decided to try Bawang Anti Hair Fall and Renewal Shampoo. I bought a set of shampoo and special anti hair fall liquid.
The set looked like this:
Bawang Anti Hair Fall and Renewal Shampoo
There are 200 ml in this shampoo, quite a standard size. The bottle is made of very standard plastic of low quality.
Bawang Anti Hair Fall Shampoo has quite a thick texture, it is very foamy and has a very strong herbal smell, too strong for me and it smells more like medicine. Luckily I don’t smell it on me or on my hair after my hair dries up.
How to use it:
You should massage it into your head for 1-2 minutes, then leave it for about 3-5 minutes and then wash it off.
I think this product is optimized for Asian women and climate. What do I mean by that? Most Asian women have a lot of hair which is thick and mostly straight. European (and especially Russian women like myself) have much thinner hair, often curly and dry. My hair is like this: very thin, curly, with dry ends. So this shampoo is definitely not for my hair type: I think it cleanses too much, my hair feels dry afterwards. I prefer more nourishing shampoos. I need a very nourishing conditioner after I’ve used this shampoo otherwise my hair will feel and look alike a big dry damaged mess and there’s no way I can brush it through. There is a plus though: I can wash my hair less often, as this subtropical climate is unusual for me, my hair got greasy quite quickly but with this shampoo it does not. If it does anything about hair fall? Nothing at all, I am very disappointed.
Bawang Anti Hair Fall and Renewal Liquid
This was a little extra that went in the same set. There is 55 ml of the product.
The bottle has a pipette. It contains a brownish liquid with the same strong herbal smell.
How to use it:
Apply 1-2 times per day on the head then massage in into it.
This liquid didn’t seem to do anything for me, it does make me hair more greasy which is too bad. My hair falls out just the way it used to.
Where can you buy it:
In China Bawang can be found prety anywhere: Vanguard, Carrefour.
