Somang Redflo Camellia Hair Shampoo, Conditioner & Treatment

I wanted to try the Redflo haircare from Somang since last summer when I discovered the products in an Egyptian Seif Pharmacy store (a chain of nicely modern and clean drugstores)... but for around US$25/bottle that was a bit too expensive for my taste though I would shell out that much money if I knew it´s a great haircare and I am out of other Asian products when I am in Egypt...it´s always good to have options!
 
The products looked so much like a Shiseido Tsubaki knock-off and the generous bottles (750ml for shampoo or conditioner and 500ml for the treatment) were really seductive to pick up back in summer...
Anyway, I was sure I could get the Redflo products for a fraction of the price on Gmarket....I know that Somang is not an expensive brand overall.
I did my search but didn´t find anything on Gmarket and then somehow forgot about that brand...
Anyway, recently I remembered it and I was searching on Google and found the Somang website where all the product names were printed in Korean so I could do my search with that and found lots of results on Gmarket! Most sellers (and those with the best offers) unfortunately didn´t send overseas but after some searching I found just what I wanted and the price was right, too (around US$7/each product) so I ordered a bottle each of the Hair Shampoo, Hair Conditioner and Hair Treatment.

Of course shipping turned out a bit more due to the weight but I ordered more things so the total costs per product came to maybe around US$12-13. Still ok, retail price in the US is US$20/each.

This haircare series smells really good, the typical floral camellia scent, similar to the famous red Tsubaki line but a bit more soapy. All products contain camellia water and camellia oil.

I actually expected to be disappointed by this haircare as after all it seemed quite cheap for the size so i didn´t have high hopes regarding the quality and being spoiled with excellent Japanese hair care.
I´d say that the Redflo haircare is pretty alright. When using all 3 products together my hair gets silky, fragrant and soft with a beautiful glossy shine however the whole series isn´t rich enough for my dyed hair. I´d say the products are good for dry hair but not for very damaged or color-treated/permed hair.



Overall a good haircare and well worth purchasing if you can get the products at a good price.

Thanks for the review. My have eBay seller sells trial packs of this shampoo. I actually bought few packs, but they don't have the packs for the conditioner. I hope it works ok for me. And maybe I'll buy the full size.

Best Regards!

In fact i got hooked! i even looked for this and luckily was able to find the 750ml in a korean shop for almost half of its price! :) thanks to your blog! :)
