Kanebo Kracie Ichikami Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatment

Kanebo Kracie´s Ichikami hair care line seemed to be Kanebo´s direct answer to the super successful Tsubaki line by Shiseido when it first came out.

I tried the older version of Ichikami some years back but didn´t quite like it. The products were alright but not outstanding and the smell reminded me too much of the red Tsubaki line, very floral and a bit cloying.

The Ichikami hair care line got a revamp not too long ago and I think the bottles look now much prettier and more elegant in their glossy bottles.
The products contain now rice bran extracts, camellia oil, walnut (?) and some other stuff I can´t figure out lol.
The line is for damaged and dry hair as it can help repair damage and give a glossy healthy shine. 

What I noticed first is that now the products smell really good. Much fresher, a bit of a fruity apple note and a grain/rice-smell, too.
All 3 products have a rich and moisturizing texture so they will be too rich for normal-oily hair.

I got the big sizes (550g) of the Shampoo (white bottle), the Conditioner (black bottle) and the 200g tube of the Treatment. I purchased all of them on eBay from kawaiikimono.

Performance-wise these products are really great though not as good as my beloved Asience hair care! The Asience stuff is just a bit richer and makes my hair even softer than the Ichikami but it can be too heavy for daily use so the Ichikami hair care is perfect to alternate with the Asience stuff.
The Treatment is to be used 1-2x per week, apply to shampooed hair, leave for a few minutes and then rinse out.

Overall a great hair care series...I love the bottles, the smell and the soft hair it gives me.

Rating 4/5

Try the Asience Nature Smooth shampoo if you find the Shine Therapy abit too heavy for daily use... I find the Nature Smooth shampoo leaves my much lighter and breezier than when I use the Inner Rich shampoo.

I really love both the shampoo and conditioner. After a few time used it, I noticed my hair is now more softer and more managable.
