Do you like green tea or matcha?
By now most of you should have heard of all the health benefits of green tea. I myself am a matcha fan and love everything matcha edition, including chocolates, roll cakes and even matcha salt (for tempura).
But how about green tea in your hair?
The Body Shop is introducing its new Fuji Green Tea Refreshingly Purifying Cleansing Hair Scrub for those who love a nature-powered approach to haircare.
Fuji Green Tea hair scrub is a blend of Japanese green tea, mint menthol, salt crystals, and Community Trade honey. It is called Fuji Green Tea because the green tea leaves are carefully collected in the foothills of Mount Fuji in Japan to create the finest extracts.
There’s also shampoo and conditioner to complete the Fuji Green Tea series.
This is a home care range, but The Body Shop organized the launch and arranged a pampering session at Number76 to show us the wonders of the products!
If you use a lot of hair styling products daily or go outdoor a lot, the Fuji Green Tea Scrub would be especially beneficial as it helps stimulate blood flow and take away impurities such as dust, smoke, sweat and styling residue.
I love having my hair shampooed in the salon because it is always extra clean.
But when I am at home it is somehow rather difficult to achieve the same result, and during days when my scalp feels extra greasy, I will shampoo my hair twice to make sure it is clean enough. This scrub sounds like a savior for a gentle scalp cleansing right at home!
First, you mix a teaspoon of scrub with water in the palm of your hands, then massage into damp scalp.
I could feel a cooling, minty sensation on my scalp and the refreshing scent of the blend. Feels really good!!
And then lather. Yes, that’s all the foam from the scrub alone!! How surprising!! I have never come across a hair scrub that foams. You just need to add a little water to lather well.
Was doing Instagram Live during that session, did you watch? 🙂
After that, rinse well. Jerry gave me a super shiok massage, I always love getting a hair wash from him :D.
Haha Instagram Live session again. This is how you have a life and get pampered while momming. Sakura was applying lipstick on her thigh.
After the hair wash, there was even a surprise sweet treat on the styling table! It’s everything green tea, from Royce chocolate, matcha roll cake, matcha mochi and a matcha nut milk cold pressed juice. Pampered to the max!!
Also a hot cup of green tea to go with it. Hair pampering session has never been better. Haha.
After the wonders of The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea hair care range, and the magic hands of Number76 stylists, my hair feels super soft, airy and bouncy. The scent is also very refreshing and relaxing, something I really love!
The first thing I feel, is of course cleaner scalp. Not only that, it is also super gentle and not drying at all! It also gives a healthy-looking shine to hair overall.
Also tried out other The Body Shop beauty products at the event. Love their Matte Lip Liquid!
Thank you The Body Shop for the pampering session. Of course, the products are 100% vegetarian,and formulated without silicones.
A greener Sakura hahah.

I love anything matcha be it food, drink or body products. However, Body Shop has long been dropped from my list of brands I use mainly because they claim to be natural but 80% of their ingredients aren’t. Very chemical and artificial in my personal opinion
