Askmewhats Reviews: Changpo Hair Coating Essences

Hello my dear friends!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am really happy that a lot of my readers appreciate my reviews. It means a lot to me because eventhough blogging is extra work, it feels really great to know that I am helping people out! :) Keep the smiles coming! :)

Our crowning glory!!! Another hair product review for everyone! :)

Changpo Hair Coating Essence says ---

Changpo (Iris) is very well-known plant which Korean women have been using for ages to replenish moisture silkiness and shine. Formulated with Iris extract this hair care line improves damaged hair due to frequent perms or harmful pollutants.

This non-sticky essence helps prevent knots in curly brittle hair for greater manageability. Silicone polymers coat cuticles and split ends for silky smooth.

Askmewhats says ---

  • non sticky
  • hair feels smooth
  • smells wonderful
  • affordable
  • product lasts a long time!
  • nice pump packaging, no spill or wastage
  • right size, easy to carry around
  • none

Everybody knows how much I love my TFS Changpo Magic Straight Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair isn't magically straight because of it but my hair is shinier and softer. After my success with the Shampoo and Conditioner, I've decided to use a serum that's on the same line. It is worth it because it's non-greasy and works really well. Hair smells great and soft to the touch.

  • squirt once for short to medium length hair
  • squirt twice for long hair
  • rub the product on your palm first before spreading the product onto the mid section down to the ends of the hair
  • store in cool dry place
  • in my opinion, I prefer applying this serum on semi-dried to dry hair (effect is better compared to applying on wet hair)
Will I repurchase?

    Prettybeautiful, yes! I saw the free shipping for any order sign! UH OH!!! About the white CS gel liner, skip it, if true black and other colors smudges on you, this will smudge on you for sure! I think this works great as a base make up :)

  10. How much was the eco tools brush set?

    Also, could you recommend any hair product I could use to tame my hair? It's wavy and tends to get very frizzy/unmanageable... Sigh.

  11. I love your hair! Although I find no need for it (because my hair is straight) I might give it a try :p and ooh! another gel liner ^_^ do a look with it! now I have gel liner cravings XD

  12. TFS is having sales! I might drop by to see if this is on sale too! :p

    But I have so many hair stuff already! Yikes!

  13. Chrissy, the Ecotools brush set is $11.75, if you want them, go to MakeupMix shop (link on this blog post) and you can have free shipping on any amount of order! :)
    For frizzy hair, I suggest you try to do weekly treatments, purchase hair treatment and wrap them over the weekend, then on weekdays, use an anti-frizz serum like Citre Shine or this one :)

    Gia, thanks! I know what you mean, I also have straight hair but this makes my hair super soft! and tangle free :)

    Plue, lucky you, go drop by their store, seldom do we have sales at TFS down here!

  23. thanks for the post. i'm always on the hunt for serums and anti-frizz stuff since my hair's friggin frizzy!! haha.

    i wonder if it makes your hair oily, though?

  24. Khymm , sure I will do!!! :) But I'm on the stage of using them to see how they really work :) Please wait and I'm sure you'll see the reviews soon!!!

    miRaCLe, thanks! :) I'm glad you got more LA Color Nail art pens, I love them!!! I'm sorry to read that Baby pink has been sold out, but at least you were able to order more with free shipping!!! :) You are very much welcome for the's my pleasure

    Renren, you can definitely try them once you come here, there's Face Shop stores down here! :)

    Aquaracer, so far, if you applied it with the right amount and apply only from the mid part of your hair down to the ends, it won't be oily at all! :) It's proven because I am living in a hot and humid country and so far, it doesn't oil on me! :)

  25. Oh wow, your hair is so shiny!! Looks like that serum is really doing it's job!

    And oh - I'm so excited for your review of the EcoTools brushes. I love that minral set! And I've been on the hunt for that eyeliner brush.
