*Semi Di Lino Moisture Nutritive Low Shampoo 250ml $28

The moisture nutritive low shampoo is described as a gentle nourishing shampoo for dry hair types that gently cleanses hair fibre to help make hair feel soft and look shiny.

The shampoo has a creamy, lightweight gel-cream formula with a mild fragrance. It lathers up nicely as it cleanses the scalp well and keeps it nourished and hydrated. I don’t wash my hair too often as my scalp tends to become oily and using this twice a week has helped to control my oily scalp, but also nourish my dry hair.

*Semi Di Lino Moisture Nutritive Mask 200ml $28

The moisture nutritive mask is described as a nourishing mask for dry hair types. This treatment helps to moisturise, nourish, as well as strengthens hair, making it feel soft to touch, look shiny and easy to comb.

In conjunction to using the shampoo, I used this creamy-rich mask twice a week and as a replacement from using a hair conditioner. I leave this mask on for 5 minutes from the mid-lengths of my hair in the shower before rinsing it out. I found my hair to be more manageable and is true to its description. This also shares similar mild fragrance to the shampoo.

*Semi Di Lino Sublime Cristalli Liquidi 30ml $44

The sublime cristalli liquidi is described as an instant brightening serum for all hair types and protects hair from humidity. I only used this rich serum when I styled my hair and used hair tools like a blow dryer or a hair straightener. It absorbed quickly, kept my hair retain moisture, minimised breakage and helped to minimise frizz and dry out my hair fibres. When I used this post shower, my hair retains the same mild fragrance as the shampoo and hair mask.

Overall, the experience I have using three products reminded me of an amazing salon treatment that I can create  in the comfort of my home. I also found that my hair has become more manageable whilst I used these products often. I noticed hair feels much more softer, appears to look luminous and frizz is under control. My hair doesn’t feel like straw or oily and I don’t feel I need to use other hair treatments like a dry shampoo in between washes. I found that these products are very moisturising and nourishing for my thick, dry, and coloured hair type.
