Korean Make Up Trash, Treat or Stash: Etude House Silk Scarf

Trash, treat or Stash. The products I've discovered are better off in the bin, the ones you should treat yourself to every now and again, and the ones that are so good that you should definitely make sure you have a stash of them.

My poor hair is abused at the best of times, with blow drying, straightening, and my horrible habit of picking my split ends. Now the humid season's just around the corner, and I'm going to have to tackle my uncontrollable mane with more gusto than ever before. I decided to give it some TLC with a hair treatment. I decided to try out Etude House's Silk Scarf range which promised to restore my locks, leaving them strong and shiny.

Cost: This cost me ₩8,000, which is less than £5 for 200ml. It's also lasted a looong time. Not bad at all!
Usability: The directions are really easy to follow as Etude always includes directions in English. Just add a blob to your hair for 5 minutes after washing it. You're supposed to use it twice a week, but I used it once a week max.
Prettiness: I love the packaging for the whole Silk Scarf range, it kind of reminds me of Soap and Glory back in the UK, except so much cheaper. It also smells amazing.
Durability: After using it my hair did feel loads softer and easier to style, yet at times it felt a little too greasy after leaving it on the recommended time, so I reduced it to about 4 mins and never applied it to anything but the very ends of my hair.


Overall, treat yourself to this product if your hair is crying out for some loving. I loved how it left my hair smelling, and it would look and feel great the day after using the product, but I don't think it changed anything in the long term. I also wouldn't advise it for hair that is naturally greasy. Next time, I'll probably try out a different range.

  1. I've been eyeing this product for a long time... the whole series actually (like serum, Hair mask, etc) but I still can't decide if I really need it or not, because people's been saying the effect won't last long and my hair needs something strong (geeeeeeez, it's SOOOO dry T^T) maybe I should try, but not before looking for something with better review lol
