It's a very unusual topic for this flowers-fish-and-funky-shrines blog, but I might as well exploit my own web space. I have a question for Caucasian women* in Japan. What shampoo do you use?
* Boys are welcome to answer too. As a matter of fact, anybody who's ever had a bad hair day, jump in!
Japanese shampoo is made for Japanese hair. It turns my fine, soft, fly-away hair into a depressed-looking oily mess, so I spend a fortune on Kérastase products that I buy at my hairdresser, or on Stephen Knoll products that you can find in some pharmacies in Tokyo's more chichi areas. I've tried Asience Nature Smooth and Shiseido Tsubaki (the white bottle), and they're OK, but still too heavy.
What's your solution?
PS: My hair isn't only very soft, it's also wavy. I had dead straight hair as a child. When I hit my forties, it started changing its texture. Now the bottom layers are almost corkscrew curls and the top layers are still straight. If I don't blow-dry it or (wo)manhandle it into a plait/bun, I resemble a perm gone badly wrong. During rainy season it looks as if I've just been electrocuted. Hormones. Ah, women and their hormones.
PPS: Next post, mythology. Promise.
