In Singapore, there’s one thing we must not forget to do regularly — wash our hair! The hot and humid Singapore weather shows no mercy when it comes to our manes. By midday, our scalp starts to oil up and we’re left with a frizzy, floppy mess. Before you throw in the towel, check out the popular Saholea shampoo, a cult product revered for tackling our hair woes. We’ve also included Saholea shampoo reviews from Shopee users who’ve tried and tested the products, so you have an idea of what to expect based from their experience!
The popularity of Saholea shampoos has spread to our shores, making it one of the most sought-after shampoos in Singapore! However, how exactly did the world come to know about Saholea and what is the brand about? Read on to find out!
Saholea is better known in Taiwan but only a handful of Singaporeans were aware of the brand and its product. It was not until Saholea shampoos were featured on a popular Taiwanese beauty show, 一袋女王 (Lady Commander) — that shot Saholea to huge international fame!
As a brand, Saholea (森歐黎) adheres to the LOHAS (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability) concept. As such, the brand includes only ingredients with the highest quality of ingredients and keeps nasties like chemical additives out of formulations.
Relying mainly on natural ingredients, Saholea hair products do not contain unnecessary chemicals, making it a good alternative for customers with sensitive skin! On top of that, Saholea hair products are free of alcohol, artificial colouring and silicone. Additionally, all products are cruelty-free as the brand does not conduct animal testing.

1. Saholea Quality Evolution Velvet Xihu Peony Shampoo

The products are formulated with ingredients designed to repair damaged hair!

What’s more, this set also comes with a free hairbrush with a long brush handle for a easy grip while brushing your hair. Incorporate these products into your hair care routine to get glossy, glowing hair at your fingertips!
2. Herbal Essence Pure Balance Shampoo
Struggling with flat and oily hair no matter how many times you wash it? You’re suffering from an oily scalp, which is a common problem many Singaporeans face due to our hot and humid weather. An oily scalp will cause your hair to lose volume, as the strands tend to stick together. Furthermore, not washing your hair can cause limp roots, waxy flakes and sometimes a strong odour — ew!
Cue the Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Shampoo (available on Saholea store), our saviour for oily scalps! As the brand’s most popular product, this Saholea shampoo claims to effectively control greasiness for up to 24 hours! Most importantly, the shampoo deeply cleanses any sebum buildup and purifies the pores to allow clean and healthy hair growth.
Similar to oily skin, a greasy scalp needs to be kept moisturised to prevent excessive sebum production. Instead of buying shampoos that’ll dry your hair out, you need to invest in a shampoo for oily scalp — one that’s purifying yet moisturising! Infused with hyaluronic acid, Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Shampoo helps to moisturize and protect your locks without exacerbating your oily scalp problems! If that’s not good enough, the shampoo is formulated with eight types of amino acids to revitalise your hair and scalp, improving your hair condition.
Also infused with aromatic chamomile and woody scents, the shampoo effectively masks any unpleasant odour that might arise!

Similar to the Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Shampoo, this conditioner is also formulated for oily scalp and hair! Keep your locks healthy with this fuss-free hair treatment in Singapore!
The Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Conditioner (available on Saholea store) contains hyaluronic acid and olive extracts to hydrate your strands and transform greasy hair into glossy and luscious locks! Furthermore, it also contains the eight vital amino acids to strengthen your hair and protect them from environmental damage.
Use this together with the Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Shampoo to enjoy voluminous and glossy hair! Both products share the same soothing scent for lasting fragrance!

4. Saholea Quality Evolution Velvet Peony Hair Mask
It’s no secret that coloured and treated hair needs extra care and attention. Enter one of the best hair masks for coloured hair — the Saholea Quality Evolution Velvet Peony Hair Mask (available on Saholea store). It has infused olive butter and hyaluronic acid and helps to repair and moisturise damaged hair filaments and lock in your hair colour. We love the fragrance of this one; jasmine, hoary stock, peony and multiflora rose scents stand out. Although formulated especially for chemically treated hair, this Saholea hair mask is also suited for normal hair types.
5. Saholea Premium Rose Series Light Shampoo
Do you wash your hair at least once every day? If the answer is yes, you need to have Saholea Premium Rose Series Light Sense Shampoo (available on Saholea store) in your life! Formulated with a low pH level, this is the perfect nourishing shampoo that’s gentle enough for daily use!
