Follow Me Launches Green Tea Shampoo And Conditioner Range

Follow Me has just launched its reformulated Green Tea Shampoo in a brand new premium packaging. Formulated with green tea and natural plant extracts, this new formulation helps strengthen hair from the roots and leaves hair feeling healthier and more manageable!

The Green Tea Shampoo is rich in Vitamin C and E to provide protection for the hair follicles while at the same time ensuring that your hair is always smooth and silky. While Polyphenol (a type of natural compound found in the Green Tea extract) helps keep the scalp healthy, the combination of various plant extracts alongside antioxidants found abundantly in the Green Tea extracts protect the hair from free radicals to further strengthen hair roots, promote hair growth and prevent hair thinning.

A healthy scalp which is clean, free from dirt, debris and sebum helps create an ideal environment in promoting hair growth; however, frequent perms and poor hygiene that includes irregular shampooing can cause breeding of bacteria that subsequently leads to dandruff and hair fall. Moreover, external environment including the hot and humid weather in Malaysia could also aggravate and potentially trigger a series of hair issues such as oily and itchy scalp, follicle congestion or even hair thinning.     
     
“Therefore, it is vital that we incorporate a proper hygiene practice right away and having discovered that the ultimate step to haircare starts from the roots by keeping a clean and healthy scalp, Follow Me wishes to deliver haircare solutions to every individual with its reformulated Green Tea Shampoo that is also infused with natural plant extracts for different hair and scalp conditions,” said Jessky Hah, Product Manager of Follow Me.
       
Available in 5 variants, the latest Follow Me Green Tea Shampoo includes the 6-in-1, Anti-Dandruff, Anti-Hair Fall, Soft and Smooth as well as Scalp Care. In addition to these are two conditioner variants, namely Anti-Hair Fall and Soft and Smooth conditioner; all of which contains the following properties to help keep hair and scalp healthy:





Follow Me Green Tea 6-in-1 Shampoo

Specially designed with Green Tea extract, this 6-in-1 Green Tea Shampoo offers 6 different hair scalp solutions in just 1 shampoo. It helps deodorise scalp, relieve scalp itchiness, reduce dandruff, prevent hair fall, and smoothen hair at one go. Moreover, it gives your hair scalp a cooling sensation and fresh fragrance when used. Suitable for individuals with combination of itchy scalp, dandruff, oily scalp and hair fall issue.




Follow Me Green Tea Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
The Follow Me Green Tea Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, which is infused with both Green Tea and Seaweed extract is suitable for individuals with dandruff and itchy scalp issue. While the Green Tea extract contains antioxidant properties that protect hair from free radicals, the Seaweed extract that is formulated alongside Pro-Tec complex helps remove loose dandruff flakes, eliminate excessive dead cells on scalp and reduce scalp itchiness, leaving you with a healthier and dandruff-free hair scalp.  


Follow Me Green Tea Scalp Care Shampoo
This is a scalp care shampoo that has a combined formulation of Green Tea and Rice Bran Oil extract. It helps protect hair from sun damage, normalizes oily scalp, locks in shine and strengthens hair roots for a healthy and more manageable hair. It is suitable for individuals with oily scalp and those who frequently stay out under the sun. 



Follow Me Green Tea Soft & Smooth Shampoo + Follow Me Green Tea Soft &Smooth Conditioner
Formulated with Green Tea and Sakura extract, the Follow Me Soft & Smooth Shampoo helps moisturise and hydrate your scalp, keeping your hair silky smooth, shiny and revitalized. To obtain maximum moisturizing effect, use it together with the Soft & Smooth conditioner as it helps lock in moisture and vital nutrients for the hair. It is suitable especially for those who have frizzy, dry hair with split ends.   



Follow Me Green Tea Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo + Follow Me Green Tea Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner
A combined formulation of Green Tea and Grape Seed extract, the Follow Me Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo is suitable for individuals with hair fall issue. This unique formulation that comes with Grape Seed extract helps reduce hair fall, strengthen and promote healthy hair growth. To obtain optimum result, use it with the Anti-Hair Fall Conditioner as it further strengthens each strand of hair, thus preventing split ends and hair thinning while ensuring that your hair is always smooth and shiny.

Something FISHY

Fish Slippers, anyone? 
Recently, I saw an article on facebook that captured my attention and began hunting for these FUGLY FISH Slippers. 
Tell me what do you think?



I am tempted to get all 3 colours. That's because I just can't decide which one looks best since they are all so FUGLY (F***ing Ugly). Wanted to get a pair for me and mom to wear probably just at home for the fun of it. Or who knows you may see me wearing it in the coming Chinese New Year celebrations - Nian Nian Yau Yu. 
These guys may be great for the sandy beaches too. 
Just wait and see when I buy a pair or two. Will definitely post pictures of it. 
Stay glued to my instagram @choypengism.

Escaping into a world of fantasy in SG

Helloooooooooo Friends! How was your looooooong holidays?
Here's wishing you a great start at work, all rejuvenated and all refreshed.
And here's welcoming September. To kick start September, I am going to write about one very interesting place I visited in Singapore last month. It's a magical place for me and it feels like I have escaped into another world full of fantasy.

I visited the Trick Eye Museum in Singapore .This post will be more about my crazy photos taken there. This photo of me riding the unicorn is one of my favourite. It feels so magical.

I also had fun playing with my little brother on my next make-believe shot.
The bigger ME bullying my brother.
And next, my more sizable brother wanting to wack me back. We siblings really had a great time here. I love our expressions.
So it's not just me and my little brother having some fun. Mom joined in the game too. I knew immediately mom would love this trick eye museum because she had a great time when I took her to experience something similar in Korea. She can really act! Wait till you see some of her shots later.
Ahhhh....I believe I can fly. Me as an angel with wings. I super love this shot too.
And now...to showcase a creative photo of me by posing and not looking into the camera.
Brother has a shot too. Yay!
My cute Guardian Angel brother.
Ahhhh this shot is close to perfect. Yeah as if I can stretch like that!
I loved the outcome of this balancing act!

This was the first sight that greeted as as we stepped into the museum hall. 

And so....many of you may just see perfect pictures taken here. Now let me take you behind the REAL scene at the Singapore Trick Eye Museum and how each artwork is prepared for you to capture that perfect story or moment.



I cannot imagine that if it's overcrowded how do we go about taking individual pictures? So glad I came now when the craze was over.  I had wanted to go when it first opened its doors back in 2014 but the line was so crazy. I had to sell my tickets off to my girlfriends who were so happen visiting Singapore then and I only came 3 years later. Hahahaha! I was super glad I made that decision cause then I could take my own sweet time to go around taking photos minus the crowd. As you can see the space is not huge and you will need the full landscape to yourself or your family and friends if you wanna take a good photo (minus the crowd) Otherwise your photo may not turn out well. Watch this video and you will know what I am talking about. Now you get the idea? 





 Mom and I had a great time!

 So realistic looking. BTW I was actually sitting on the floor.


Mom and boy having some playtime 












It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I also love the mermaid scene.








The photos were so good that I decided to make a photobook out of it. 
Here's to a memorable family outing.
Psst...I also heard they have some sort of Augmented Reality Effects. Too bad I did get to experience it there cause I did not download that mobile application. I was pretty happy with all the photos taken. So no regrets in visiting.
