As I’ve heard, “powerdose conditioning treatment is the most intense hair repair treatment available to salons.” Here in Manila, Philippines, powerdose and hair conditioning treatment services that reinforce and optimize your hair from the inside out usually cost around the average of PHp 500. Some salons base the price on the length of your hair. So if you have long hair like I do (almost reaching the waist), expect to pay more.
For that, I say, “No, thanks.” I prefer to save tons of cash with purchasing a product I can use at home while I receive the same “treatment.” This post features a hair care product that can do just that: Monea Powerdose Plus Soft and Bouncy (250g) (PHp 250).
Monea Powerdose Plus Soft and Bouncy Hair Treatment by JTomas Collections is a deep conditioning treatment that you leave on your hair for 10-20 minutes and should be used at least once in two weeks. Apparently, this product has been out in the market in 2012 (available in Landmark, Watsons, Unimart, Cash & Carry, RB Hortaleza, Gaisano Outlets and health and beauty section of supermarkets and department stores nationwide). But since it’s always almost sold out in stores, I have not seen it before until it was shipped to my door last week.
I tried using it following these instructions, as shown on the label:
How to Use Monea Powerdose Plus Soft and Bouncy Hair Treatment
1. Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner during your bath, just like in normal days.
2. Apply Monea’s Power Dose (Green) Product on your scalp to the ends of your hair.
3. Gently massage your scalp and leave Monea’s Power Dose (Green) Product for 10-20 minutes.
4. Rinse it off with water.
Monea Powerdose Plus Soft and Bouncy: Likes and Dislikes
Not having straight-as-a-board hair anymore after the digi-perm procedure last February, I don’t have spend time prepping and styling my hair before going out. However, I still have to apply Monea Curl Defining Milk Lotion, or my hair would go unruly and look frizzled.
Thanks to Monea Powerdose Plus Soft and Bouncy, my hair felt really softer and lighter, and this went on for the rest of the day. The tips didn’t go tangled, even without me using those other hair care products. Another good point is the fragrance, which is like “fruit-forward,” sweet but not too strong.
What I don’t like about it is that the consistency of the substance. it was not too thick like I expected. I just think that thicker conditioners coat the cuticle of the hair more.
So far I didn’t encounter any irritation on the scalp. So I guess this bottle of Monea can be described as a powerful, rinse-out repair treatment with effective results (not sure if long-lasting).
Whether you have digi-permed hair like mine, colored, treated or natural hair, you can trick your gorgeous mane to be bouncier and silkier maybe with this powerdose conditioning treatment. 🙂
