TIGI® S-Factor™ Color Savvy™ Shampoo, Conditioner, & "Serious" Conditioner

TIGI® S-Factor™ "Serious" Conditioner has been my favorite go-to hair treatment product for several years now. And last year, I decided to try S-Factor™ Color Savvy™ Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner.

I initially used Color Savvy Shampoo and Conditioner for few days right after I colored my hair, but felt it wasn't moisturizing enough for my dry and damaged hair: so I went back to using my Fekkai products. The rising popularity of sulfate-free shampoos eventually made me give these products another try, and this time, I used it consistently for the past six months.

Bio-Oil®: Hype or Miracle?

There's been a lot of hype about Bio Oil® for a while now. At the same time, some people are saying that it's just a hype.

Bio Oil® claims that this manufactured duck preen oil, PurCellin Oil™, increases spreadability of various other ingredients and also allow better absorption. Bio Oil® also contains mineral oil, various vitamins, essential oils, fragrant oils and etc... For list of ingredients with explanation of benefits, I found this site very helpful. 

I started using Bio Oil® to treat scars several years ago. And for the past three years, I've been using it more extensively for various other purposes. Bio Oil® is supposed to treat scars, stretch marks. uneven skintone, aging skin,  and dehydrated skin. I can attest to its effectiveness for the latter three effects, but as for treating stretch marks I can't say much since I haven't experienced stretch marks. But I have heard from ladies having used Bio Oil® before and after giving birth, that it's decently effective in preventing and reducing the looks of stretch
