  • Some Japanese shampoo is becoming extremely popular these days, but do you ever wonder which one is the best for you? Here are some of my recommendations for the best Japanese shampoo!

    Himawari Shampoo

    This product is best to use during summer and winter. During summer, our hair has a distinct sweaty smell when we go outside even for a few minutes. When you use Himawari, the aroma of the shampoo combined with conditioner will stay in your hair like using a perfume. While during winter, the aroma of this product can stay in your hair for 2-3 days. Though it may be a little bit pricey, you can get your money’s worth. It comes in sachets perfect for traveling on overnight trips.
    It is best used with Himawari Conditioner.

    Tsubaki Shampoo

    While this shampoo was quite an average shampoo for me, it is a very popular choice in Japan. It makes your hair shinier, however without proper rinsing, it may build up residues on the scalp. Tsubaki also comes with four variants, white for damaged hair, yellow for head spa, red as shining shampoo and violet for volume. Use this shampoo with the conditioner matching its color for the best result!

    Shisheido Super Mild Shampoo

    This is the cheapest among the four Japanese shampoos, but this is highly recommended. Super Mild Shampoo doesn’t have a strong smell like Himawari but is an excellent product to try on your hair. This shampoo will not build up dandruff on your scalp though you do need to use a large amount of shampoo before it lathers. It also comes in tiny bottles perfect for traveling. Best to use with Super Mild Conditioner, or other conditioners with a strong scent.

    Sunstar Tonic Shampoo

    Sunstar Tonic Shampoo is designed for men, although recently, there are some women who also prefer to use this product. It is an anti-dandruff shampoo with energy menthol for a cooling sensation. The difference between the two Sunstar Tonic products is that the blue bottle is shampoo and conditioner in one, while Sunstar Tonic Green is a shampoo only.
