Review : Kracie Ichikami Shampoo and Conditioner

This is my first review on a shampoo. I've only used it for 2 weeks in a row and switched to Ginvera's. My scalp history is one that has an oily property, but thankfully I didn't suffer from dandruff problems. I saw this shampoo at Farmer's Market and blogged about it in a haul post several weeks ago. So, after a good 2 weeks of using this shampoo + conditioner, here's my opinion about it.

Kracie Ichikami Shampoo 

The shampoo is packaged in a white bottle with a flip cap on top. I saw this brand being sold at most supermarkets and Watsons.

How I Use It
As with all shampoo, I wet my hair, pour some product on my hands and massaged it into a lather on my hair. Afterwards, just rinse thoroughly.

What I Like About It
  • It's available at most supermarkets in Jakarta
  • The shampoo lathers easily
  • It gives a clean and refreshing feel after I rinsed it
  • The fragrance is a sweet and fresh floral scent
  • When my hair is dry, it feels fluffy and lightweight
What I Hate About It
  • If I didn't wash my hair the next day, it tends to make my hair oily and limp
  • I have to use the shampoo together with the conditioner to obtain soft and fluffy hair. If I used the shampoo alone, my hair usually feels coarse 
  • It didn't help with my itchy scalp 
Let's move on to the conditioner review and I'm gonna make this one brief. Let me just summarize it in one simple paragraph. 

The Kracie Ichikami conditioner is packaged in a black bottle with a flip cap on the bottom. After using this conditioner, it made my hair soft and smooth, but nothing special. I feel the same effect from using my Dove Daily Shine conditioner.

So, the question is : Would I repurchase these two again? 

Well, I have to say no because it's just an average shampoo that doesn't really help my scalp condition (my scalp tends to itch so much) and I have to use both to achieve soft, smooth and fluffy hair. 

However, please keep in mind that each people react differently to the same product. Who knows this might be the best shampoo you've tried, so just give it a go.
