Lucido-L Hair Make Supplement Triple Beauty Vitamin Oil for Damaged Hair Review

Hello, lovelies~ I am not one to fuss a lot with my hair because I never grow them past my shoulders, so I never had any problems like dry ends.  However, my hair has already grew pas my shoulders now and it has been the longest I've ever experienced. I still use a silicone free shampoo, which is great for my scalp, but not so much for the ends of my hair. It becomes frizzy and very dry, so I decided to get a silicone based hair serum/vitamin because it works great on sealing the moisture inside those dry parts of my hair. In short, I bought the Lucido-L Vitamin Oil for my hair to try out. 

Being a Japanese product, the container is cute and attractive. It does come with a separate, semi transparent box that has all of the information written on it. There is a short description of the product and how to use it on your hair. 

As I've mentioned in the first paragraph, I was looking for a silicone based hair product to battle the dry ends of my hair, so it is loaded with silicones, being cylcomethicones and dimethicone. There is fragrance in the mix, giving the product a citrus, floral scent that is not too overwhelming for my olfactory sense. There is sunflower seed oil, olive fruit oil and soybean oil further down the list, so I highly doubt that they're doing their job. Probably they're placed there just to fulfil the FDA certification, LOL. Nonetheless, silicones are still there to fix my dry ends.

When I took the bottle out of the box, it was an oval shaped bottle that is orange in color. I don't have many beauty products that are orange in color, but, hey, there's always a first, right? Although I haven't tried travelling with it, but it looks quite sturdy and secure. The cap locks on pretty tight on the bottle, but I'll never know 'till I travel with it.

I love that it comes with a pump because it makes it easier for me to measure the product. For Rp 43,000 at Watsons, the pump is just a good thing to have. Either that, or I'm just that much in love with pump bottle packagings, lol. 

The consistency of the hair vitamin oil is more on the thicker side, kinda like frying oil. I was a little worried that it may be sticky on my hair and hands at first. However, it is true to its claim that it is non sticky after I've applied it on the ends of my hair. My hands felt silky after I've finished applying the hair oil to my hair. It doesn't really take that much time working it into my hair.
I usually use a pump (or two, depends on my mood) of hair vitamin oil for my hair. I would place the product onto my hands, rub my hands together and slowly go through my half dried hair with my hands. The area that I applied is the hair that is as high as the lowest part of my earlobes all the way down. This method ensures me that I don't apply any of the serum on my scalp.

This oil has been a staple for the past two weeks and I love it! The moisture is retained within my hair shafts and makes it less dry. I don't have a problem with it weighing down my hair since I only applied it on the ends. Although the silicone may scare people away, I think it is suitable for hair that has past shoulder length and is experiencing dryness on the ends. Well, as long as you applied it wisely, a little silicone will do wonders. Not on my scalp, though. That will be a nightmare, lol.

Another plus point that I like from this serum is the shine that it gives my hair. Since it is dimethicone combined with oils, it is bound to give my hair that glossy, healthy look. Looking at these pics, makes me want to dye my hair black, lol. The brown looks weird despite the fact that I didn't dye it.

How about you? Have you tried this hair vitamin oil yet? Let me know in the comments below what your thoughts are on this product. Until then, I'll see you later~ ^_^

  1. I wonder if there are any similar products here in Finland...
    My hair is super damaged from the ends.... I also should dye my hair to make it look more alive. It's pretty much like ash brown/grey LOL

    1. I think it's best to choose a product that contains silicone for dry ends. Before I got my hands on this product, I use a silicone-based conditioner only on the ends and leave it for around 5 minutes before rinsing it out. Works great! ^_^

  2. where did you buy it, is it available in Jakarta? I saw one in Bandung but I hesitated so I didn't buy it. after reading your review I regret not buying it hahaha :D also, can it be used as a heat protectant before using styling tools or do I need another product for that?
