Symply G for Simply Gorgeous Hair

Other than press releases, I've never blogged about a shampoo (for adults) before. I decided that when I do blog one,  I'll make sure it's definitely worth it and it's a product that my readers would love.

Just recently, I discovered Symply G Keratin Shampoo and Keratin Deep Conditioning Therapy in Facebook. I immediately bought 5 sachets each in our nearest Puregold branch (retails at 6 pesos each) because I was mesmerized with the popular words, "Brazilian", "Keratin" and "Argan Oil" written on their packs hoping they could somehow improve my hair's current condition.

The Products:

  • Symply G Keratin Shampoo is enriched with argan oil which is known for its beauty benefits, especially for hair. Here is the description at the back of the sachet:

    "Keratin shampoo with argan oil is designed for cleaning rebonded and colored hair, and giving its maximum moisture that makes your hair natural straight, soft and shiny."

Symply G Keratin Deep Conditioning Therapy
  • Keratin Deep Conditioning Therapy with Argan Oil is the second step after shampooing your hair. It claims to be a 1-minute treatment that aims to renew and moisturize damaged hair. Here is the description:

    "Keratin with argan oil is enrched with argan oil words to re-hydrate dry and damaged hair. It is specially formulated for damaged hair and sensitive scalp. The unique formula is competent to penetrate deeply while protecting the cuticular layer on hair. Keratin with argan oil treatment gives you exceptionally soft and shiny hair."

Directions for Use: 

Step 1: Shampoo with Symply G Keratin Shampoo with Argan Oil
Step 2: Condition with Symply G Keratin Conditioner with Argan Oil. For best results, leave the conditioner for 1 minute before rinsing with water. That's it!

I often let my hair get rebonded once in a while so I'm quite happy to find a suitable shampoo that I can use when it's time to wash my hair. 

My Symply G Experience

The only hair treatment I had for the past 12 months is a hair coloring treatment and I'm currently suffering from dry and damaged hair. I was eager to try Symply G shampoo and the conditioner to see what it can do to my hair. The moment I opened the shampoo, I instantly smelled its invigorating scent that's very similar with keratin shampoos used in salons, and I just loved it. It also was very easy to lather all over my scalp and it gets bubbly easily.

On the other hand, the conditioner had the same keratin scent and its texture is somewhat similar to most conditioners in the market, which is thick and smooth. I placed the conditioner on my hair for 1 minute just like in the directions before rinsing it. I swear, after taking a bath, it actually felt like having my hair washed in a salon because of its lasting scent.

After naturally drying my hair, it instantly felt silky smooth presumably as a result of keratin and argan oil working together.  Just 2 days of using Symply G, I can see the healthy shine that argan oil is known for. My hair also became less frizzy than before. So far, I'm happy with the result. It just proves that Symply G really works intensively to replenish my hair's lost nutrients and repair the damage. I'm confident that if I use this product for 7 days or more, it will definitely make a difference.

1st day (left): I felt my hair to be silky soft after drying.
2nd day (right): Less frizz and hair became more manageable

As a bonus, I'm also glad that my scalp didn't react negatively to Symply G Shampoo because I usually get dandruff when I'm not "hiyang" to a shampoo I'm using. It's been 2 days since I've used the shampoo and no dandruff so far (yey!).  That's another plus for me and another point for Symply G.

Nash Coffee: My Partner in Life

Coffee has been a part of my everyday adult life. It has become an integral part of my daily routine. I don't think I can function very well without drinking a cup coffee to perk me up and start my day.

Every day, I do my work, tend to my family, do household chores, among other things. It easily gets me tired, but I still continue to do what I'm supposed to do. My (obvious) reason is that I love my family above all else and I want to support my husband financially. But the question is what physically drives me to do what I must do every day, and stay strong and positive? It's my "KARAMAY sa BUHAY”. Our daily life’s journey is so much easier with our “karamay” by our side and one of the things that we found to be by our side is coffee.

When I was young, I  really didn't care much about the quality of the coffee I'm drinking. I guess I was still at the age when I was open to almost all kinds and all flavors of coffee. Now that I'm 36 years old and my taste buds have become quite a bit selective,  there's one coffee brand that  captured the flavor that I yearn for in coffee drinks and that brand would be NASH.

NASH Coffee offers three variants that have become part of our daily lives: Nash Aroma, Nash White and Nash Brown. Each variant has the right mix of coffee and sweetness that is right for each time of the day.

The three Nash variants: Aroma Coffee, Brown Coffee, and White Coffee.
Each sachet retails at P5.00
Our breakfast meal would not be complete without coffee in it. In fact, most often than not, coffee has also become a complete breakfast meal for us who are always on the go. We wake up and start our daily grind very early in the morning and to boost and jump start our day, our “Karamay” coffee is there. It is that coffee AROMA taste and smell that gives us the perkiness and energy that we need.

Aside from being the best breakfast partner, coffee has also become an after-meal drink. It has become the drink of choice to either complete or supplement our meal. Our “karamay” drink has gone through a lot of face lift just to satisfy the particular need in a day in the lives of the Filipinos. From the black coffee flavor, it became WHITE coffee to give us the sweet after meal drink. White coffee has become my favorite drink since college and I believe it's also quite popular with millennials nowadays.

Sometimes when the weather is hot, I do want my coffee to be ice cold like the picture on the left. Perfect for Nash White Coffee and Brown Coffee. The picture on the right is a picture of my heavy breakfast partnered with black coffee. 

The Brown coffee is my personal favorite. I drink it almost every afternoon during coffee breaks.
Of course, when it's almost the end of the day, coffee really remains to be the go-to beverage of Filipinos for an instant energy boost and provide the last kick that we need. The BROWN coffee is the perfect coffee type for this setting as it is a balance of bitter coffee to provide the energy boost. 

There are no guarantees in life, but we still struggle and do our very best in order to succeed. And to go through this daily struggle, it's comforting to know that we have a sure “karamay sa buhay” that would keep us going like Nash Coffee. 

“NASH masarap ang buhay kapag NASH ang karamay” and this is the NASH culture!

The Great Escapes Travel Fair

Yesterday, I was invited to see the ribbon-cutting of the Great Escapes Travel Fair in Glorietta, Makati. About 20 travel agencies and hotels participated in this event together with some food booths. It was a nice experience because unlike major travel expos, I wasn't overwhelmed with the number of booths. I went around feeling relaxed and simply asked questions with what the booths had to offer.
