In Singapore, there’s one thing we must not forget to do regularly — wash our hair! Our hot and humid 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 in Singapore, a cult product revered for tackling hair woes!
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 concept and advocates for a green and sustainable way of living. The brand treads off the beaten path, boasting a series of no-frills, wholesome products, packed with numerous benefits. Relying mainly on natural ingredients, Saholea hair products are free of unnecessary chemicals, alcohol, artificial colouring and silicone, making it a good alternative for those with sensitive skin! Additionally, all products are cruelty-free as the brand does not conduct animal testing.
All in all, Saholea aims to produce simple yet effective products for different skin and hair types and has been doing a fabulous job at that!
Saholea shampoos in Singapore
Now that we have a better understanding of Saholea as a brand, let’s find out what they have to offer! Saholea carries a wide range of personal care products, including shampoos, hair conditioners and shower gels. The Saholea shampoos are especially popular in Singapore!
1. 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), 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!
2. Saholea Herbal Essence Pure Balance Conditioner
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) 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!
3. Saholea Double Moisturising Shampoo
The Saholea Double Moisturising Shampoo (available on SAHOLEA) is a top choice shampoo if you’re on the hunt for a one with extra nourishing ingredients. This intense double moisturising product is formulated with hydrolysed silk proteins. Yes, you heard right. Hydrolysed silk proteins are soluble chemicals derived from silk fibre itself and are included in shampoos to improve hair’s elasticity. This Saholea shampoo also injects extra moisturising ingredients like argan oil and olive oil to strengthen and repair damaged hair.
Hands up if you tend to go with the nicest smelling shampoos. Blackberry, rum and orange passion fruit dominate the top notes of this shampoo. While freesia, jasmine, green tea and rose make the middle notes with musk as the base note. Doesn’t that just sound divine?
4. Saholea Re-Volume Caffeine Shampoo
Formulated with caffeine extracts, the Saholea Re-Volume Caffeine Shampoo strengthens hair roots, boosts volume, purifies pores and improves hair condition to prevent breakage or split ends. On top of that, this low pH level shampoo contains hydrolysed wheat protein which is absorbed deep into the hair shafts to revitalise and strengthen the hair to create more volume.
Similar to the Saholea Herbal Essences Pure Balance Shampoo, the Re-Volume Caffeine Shampoo is infused with chamomile extracts to neutralise unpleasant odours from the scalp and provide everlasting shine!
All of the Saholea shampoos smell amazing and this one is no exception! Divided into three notes, the shampoo first emits a tangy scent of fresh oranges and lemons, followed by a refreshing blend of fruity and floral notes. Eventually, the shampoo concludes with its last note — a gentle combination of musk and vanilla! You’re bound to smell good all day long with this Saholea shampoo!
5. 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). 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.
6. Saholea Intensive Restructuring Treatment
In Singapore, several shampoos and chemical processes that dye, bleach, perm and rebond our hair can often cause detrimental damage that’s difficult to repair. In order to restore vitality to your hair and scalp, you need to use an extremely nourishing hair treatment.
However, we all know that hair treatments in Singapore can be costly. So instead of splurging, opt for a more affordable daily alternative by using Saholea Intensive Restructuring Treatment (available on SAHOLEA)! This low pH level shampoo contains powerful amino acids that provide essential vitamins necessary for hair recovery and maintenance. After a few uses, you’ll find your hair silkier and smoother to the touch!
Infused with Moroccan oil, the Saholea Intensive Restructuring Treatment penetrates deeply into each strand, providing much-needed hydration. Furthermore, the Myrothamnus Flabellifolia extract helps to restructure your locks to prevent ageing hair as well as strengthens hair defence — leaving you with strong, well-nourished locks!
Application is also simple and fuss-free! Shampoo your hair and rinse well before applying the hair treatment thoroughly onto your hair (avoid the hair roots). Massage it into your hair for one to two minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.
Using this treatment will leave you with hair that looks good and smells even better, making this one Saholea shampoo to get in Singapore!
7. 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) in your life! Formulated with a low pH level, this is the perfect nourishing shampoo that’s gentle enough for daily use!
Similar to the other Saholea products, this shampoo does not contain alcohol, silicone or artificial colouring. Furthermore, this Saholea shampoo consists of eight essential amino acids in addition to hyaluronic acid and rose extracts.
Besides its gentle formula, the Saholea Aqua Smooth Herbal Essences Rose Shampoo is effective at cleansing your hair without stripping it of moisture, maintaining hair elasticity and strength.
8. Saholea Net Balance Tea Tree Series Antipruritic Shampoo
An itchy scalp and persistent dandruff is not only bad for your hair but can take a toll on self-confidence too. If natural remedies for dandruff are just not working, then it’s time to call in some big guns. The Saholea Net Balance Tea Tree Series Antipruritic Shampoo (available on SAHOLEA) boasts an effective anti-dandruff formula with zinc pyrithione and climbazole — the two main ingredients to get rid of dandruff and relive scalp itchiness. Excess dandruff can also inhibit hair growth too. The tea tree oil in this Saholea shampoo helps to clear hair follicles and regenerates hair growth for a healthier scalp and more confident you!
