How’s your day been?
Hope it’s been manageable so far. Either way, don’t be too hard on yourself. 👍
Anyway, today I’ve decided to bring a hair care product that I’ve actually been liking and using diligently.
During the circuit breaker measures in Singapore, I was wondering if there’s any sort of homemade mask or a certain product I can use to improve my hair texture or silkiness.
It had been a LONG while since it was smooth to touch, plus my hair is pretty thick.
Thick and straight, and frizzy. Imagine having to blow dry that after every wash lol.
A short process of how I ended up with this product was:
- Brazilian keratin treatment kit
- Homemade mask with yogurt, honey etc
- Appointment at a salon when possible
- Find new conditioner that does its job
I really was thinking of getting the Brazilian keratin treatment kit but I heard some needed you to go over the hair with a flat iron. I had a lot of hair so I can’t imagine going through my whole head and flat ironing it.
Homemade mask were usually messy so out.
Salon appointments just for hair treatment is not cost efficient in the long run, so no.
The most cost efficient one was trying to find another conditioner that can help to smoothen out my hair.
THEN I remembered my mom had recently bought a Korean brand that had both hair care products and body wash. She bought the body wash and I decided to Google + watch YouTube reviews of their hair treatment and shampoo.
Apparently, they claim to sell 1 shampoo every 3 seconds.
Since I am still using the Selsun Anti-Dandruff shampoo once every 2 washes, I thought a hair treatment would be better.
That product was none other than KUNDAL Hydro-Intensive Protein Premium Hair Treatment! (Not sponsored or whatever)
That’s a long name so thereafter shall be called hair treament.
It’s very rare for me to review hair products unless they do help to a certain extent. Most conditioners just help for a short while but I do realise that this lasts till my next wash.
Not sure if it’s just me but that’s my hair for you.
Let’s just get started with the review! 😉
What: KUNDAL Honey & Macadamia Hydro-Intensive Protein Premium Hair Treatment
Price: S$10.50 (from Shopee, excl. shipping fees)
Weight: 500 ml / 16.90 fl. oz.
Period-After-Opening: 12 months
It’s kind of embarrassing but I cannot find the english-translated version of the ingredients 🙁
If I do find it some day, I will insert it here!
According to KUNDAL, these are the healthy and natural kinds of ingredients that they use, which are also all EWG Green Grade ingredients, meaning ‘low dangerousness’.
They have Honey and Macadamia extract in all their products, if I’m not wrong. Hence, the signature Honey & Macadamia title in all their product names.
But not subjected to just those two!

Look & Feel
It was just shipped like this in a box but no complaints as long as it wasn’t expiring anytime soon or already used lol.
I chose the scent White Musk because I heard that it was a more pleasant baby powder smell. They do have a scent called “Clean Soap” scent which is essentially the ‘baby powder’ scent we always smell haha.
Did not venture into trying the others as I wanted a very neutral scent if possible.
There are a lot of scents available for you to pick. I suggest you to search for KUNDAL’s official Qoo10 page as I find that they include more information on the product compared to Shopee’s limited photos.
They share on the different notes in the scents for you to choose what you like!
No complaints on the functionality or the sturdiness of the bottle. It does pump out a little more than I think was needed though. So I try to use a little less pressure so I don’t do a full pump.
I treat this as a conditioner despite it being called a ‘treatment’.
Applying it was simple. It’s a typical conditioner texture as you can see, easy to spread.
Oh but here’s a tip for some of you who might not know this.
I only knew of it recently – can’t remember from where though – I don’t have excellent memory to begin with lol.
TIP: When applying your conditioner / treatment, do not squeeze out all the water after rinsing your shampoo away. Lightly squeeze them out with your hands but not tightly. Dripping a little is fine.
From my experience of doing this versus wringing out as much water as I can before I apply conditioner / treatment, I find that I can spread the product easier + use lesser compared to when it’s less damp and needing more to coat the hair strands.
I don’t experience a decline in hair smoothness either, and I leave it on for around 3 minutes.
However, if you’re doing a deep conditioner or some hair mask, it might be better to wring out a little more water since they have to penetrate deeper.
Some additional tips from KUNDAL themselves:
Some other tips from me would be to comb your hair prior to shampoo and to dry your scalp as best as you can (if you have thick hair like me).
P.S. I intend to upload an Info Monday post soon for a hair care tip soon. It really works! LOL.

I envy those who can air dry their hair. If I do air dry mine, I’d take 2 days? LOL.
The scent does not linger as strongly as when you just used it but if you smell your hair, there will be a slight hint of it.
I like that because I don’t really prefer shampoos or conditioners to smell overpowering.
Overall, the cons would be that it didn’t help much with my hair frizziness.
My hair felt smooth to the touch but when it’s fully dried, the lower half of my hair would look slightly puffed(?). It doesn’t look silky smooth as opposed to how it felt, if you get what I mean.
Maybe if I used the KUNDAL shampoo in tandem with this treatment, it would be better but I have not tried it. Until I try that combination, I will leave this review as it is.
- Does its job of making my hair feel smooth till the next wash
- Smells good
- Affordable (500ml bottle)
- Ease of availability
- No harsh chemicals
- Hair feels healthy when touched
- Various scents to pick from
- Does not help much with frizziness for me
Am I Repurchasing?
Possibly. But I might also try a separate leave in conditioner to help with my frizziness.
For such a big bottle and an affordable price, (plus, it really makes my hair smooth) I think it is definitely worth repurchasing if I do get it again.
Anyone has any good product recommendations for me? Do let me know if you do!
