Vitabrid C12 Hair Tonic And Scalp Care Shampoo | Korean Hair Care

Korean Haircare


Hi loves,

Korean beauty is taking over the U.S. and I couldn’t be more excited about that.  Everywhere I look, more and more Korean brands are making their way into American stores and online retailers.  Today I will be sharing two hair products that are based with Vitabrid CG.

What is Vitabrid CG?

“Vitabrid CG is the main component of Vitabrid C12 products, specializing in delivering active Vitamin C in a stable form through the use of a patented Layered Double Hydroxide (LDH) Technology. This proprietary organic-inorganic hybrid technology encapsulates active Vitamin C between bio-friendly mineral layers to deliver active Vitamin C continuously for over 12 hours, deep into the skin, down to the dermis. Vitabrid CG was developed by world-renowned chemist Dr. Jinho Choy at South Korea’s prestigious Ewha Woman’s University.”

Vitabrid Scalp Care Review

Scalp Care Shampoo:

I really enjoyed using this scalp care shampoo.  The texture feels amazing, and it smells really good.

This shampoo claims to :

  • Strengthen and thicken hair
  • Treat dandruff & psoriasis on scalp
  • Volumize
  • Treat itchy scalp

After 30 days of trying of trying this shampoo, I can honestly say that my hair felt stronger. I usually have a lot of breakage when brushing out my hair, and I noticed that not as much was breaking, which means less hair to clean off of the floor :).  I do have a very dry scalp which causes dandruff to show up often.  This Vitamin C definitely had to be nourishing the heck out of my scalp because it is no longer AS dry.  If you have more severe dry scalp, or psoriasis, then I suggest using this product for a longer amount of time before seeing major results.

Scalp Tonic:

This product was fun to use.  I actually really enjoy sprays for your hair because I feel like I have more control over the area that I am applying it to, and it’s not getting too saturated.  It wastes less product too.  You receive 1 month supply per box.

Vitabrid C12 Hair Tonic Set Review

The scalp tonic claims to:

  • Prevent hair loss and promote hair regrowth
  • Antioxidant: suppress aging of scalp
  • Soothe scalp and alleviates itchiness
  • Supply moisture and nutrients to the scalp and hair

To apply this hair magic, all you have to do is 3 simple steps.

  1. Pour
  2. Mix
  3. Spray onto scalp

I definitely experienced a more hydrated scalp using this product.

If you want to try some really nourishing Korean haircare, I definitely recommend these.

What are your favorite Korean hair products?

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Wonderful Pre-Wash Protein Treatment Review

Madam CJ Walker hair product reviews


Hi loves,

Have you ever treated your hair before actually washing it?  Sounds funny right? It actually is an amazing concept.  Today I am going to share a new Pre-wash protein treatment from Madam C.J. Walker Beauty that I can’t live without.

Madam CJ Walker Beauty

To me pre-treating your hair is like using a primer before applying makeup.  It makes such a huge difference in how your hair feels and takes in other hair care products.

This particular treatment re-builds and restores dry, brittle, and split hair damaged from  chemicals, and heat by using amazing proteins.

You can purchase this product at Sephora stores, and Sephora online.  For $32 you receive 6 oz. of product.

To apply, I dampen my hair with warm water and then massage the product onto my scalp.  I put it on my scalp not only so that it gets the roots of my hair, but also to have it run down the center of my hair when rinsing so that I don’t have to waste product by needing to apply it there.  I also focus on the ends where the most damage is.

For this to become an even deeper treatment, I apply some heat from the hair dryer for about 15 minutes before rinsing.  After rinsing this out, my hair feels amazingly conditioned and healthier.  You can follow with your normal wash routine afterwards.

This pre-wash protein treatment is also a great for detangling!

My hair has been loving this.  I make sure to use it three times a week.

The lovely smell of vanilla is also a plus.

Nyakio Skincare Product Review

Nyakio Beauty Review


Hi loves!

Today I am sharing a fabulous skincare brand that is very new to me.  I have been testing these products out for quite some time, and could not be more pleased with the results. The brand I will be mentioning is called Nyakio.

Nyakio, pronounced NEH-KAY-OH, means hardworking woman in the sunshine.

This brand uses amazing ingredients that can be found in countries such as Kenya, China, Brazil, Spain, Egypt, India, Morocco, and Peru.

There are 16 products total from this skincare line to choose from, and you can find products that cleanse, exfoliate, restore, moisturize, or treat your skin.

Products Tested:

  • African Purifying Black Soap Mud Mask $35
  • Kenyan Coffee Face Polish $32
  • Kenyan Coffee Lip Polish $24
  • Chamomile Sleep Mask $35
  • Red Ginseng Smoothing Eye & Lip Cream $39
  • Sweet Almond Cleansing Balm $28

Each product can be found at select Ulta stores, as well as Ulta Beauty online.

Let’s start out with cleansing.  I have mentioned on my Instagram that I have been really loving oil cleansers and balms even though my skin is oily.  It actually keeps my oil under control. The Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Balm is fabulous. It smells amazing and literally melts the makeup and dirt off of my face.  I did not feel the need to use a cleanser afterwards, but I did wipe any excess off with a towel.

After cleansing/removing any makeup I have on I exfoliate my skin.  I have large pores that clog easily, so I find that I need to exfoliate more often than others in order to keep them clear, and help minimize them.  The Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish works wonders for me. It’s not like your typical harsh scrub.  It is the perfect texture and it felt like I was rolling dead skin off of my face.  I love how smooth it leaves my skin without needing to be super harsh.


To exfoliate my lips I use the Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Lip Polish.  This lip scrub comes in a tube making it super sanitary, instead of needing to dip your finger into it to grab the product.  The applicator is also great for massaging the scrub around.  My lips are left smooth and plump afterwards.


Next up is my favorite part! Applying a face mask.  As you know I am obsessed with all types of face masks for many different reasons.  This particular one is great for detoxing and treating the skin. The Nyakio African Black Soap Mud Mask truly helped any blemishes I had at the time.  This mask is more like a 2-in-1 because as you rinse the mask off, it exfoliates your skin as well.


Lastly, it’s time to moisturize.  Moisturizers are a MUST for me in order to trick my skin into thinking it is producing enough oil that way it doesn’t go into overdrive and create even more oil (confusing but true).  My under eye area has been loving the Nyakio Red Ginseng Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream.  It absorbs so well and helps me look less tired.  My makeup also looks amazing in the areas that I use this cream.

For the rest of my face I use the Nyakio Chamomile Soothing Sleep Mask.  This is a no rinse sleeping mask.  The scent is so relaxing it honestly helps me fall asleep.  It feels very lightweight, and I wake up to hydrated beautiful skin.

I continue to use these products in my daily skincare routines. I highly recommend each of these.

What products are you going to try?
