#HHWT Tries: KUNDAL’s Newest All-Natural & Muslim-Friendly Korean Hair Care Products


Shasha Dania •  Dec 29, 2020

In a hot and humid tropical country like Singapore, finding the right hair care products for your needs can be an uphill battle. With the weather alternating between hot, rainy, and ultra-humid, you’re never really sure how your hair and scalp will react on any given day. And if you wear a hijab, you might even face common problems like dry or sensitive scalp, greasy hair, and hairfall! ?

The good news is that there are now hair care products specially formulated to tackle the common problems for hijabis - so you can feel comfortable and confident throughout your day! ? KUNDAL is a personal daily care brand from Korea that uses all-natural ingredients, and almost all of their products have received the EWG Green Grade certifying that they have been tested and found to be free from chemicals like parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.

Because KUNDAL’s products are naturally-based (not to mention affordable - they start from just $10.50 on Guardian’s website!), they’re suitable for Muslims and are easy to work into your daily hair care routine too. Our colleague Amirah tested some of the products to see how they helped with her hair care concerns - read on for her honest review!

Amirah has long hair with a dry scalp and frequent hair fall, so she’s been on the lookout for a product with cooling properties that can help reduce hair fall. The first product she tried was KUNDAL’s brand-new Miracle Damage Care Water Treatment, formulated with honey and macadamia extract to nourish dull, brittle, and damaged hair. Her first impression? The water treatment was nice and cooling on her scalp, and left her hair feeling smoother than her current products! ?

KUNDAL’s water treatment has a unique texture you might not have seen before. At first it’s clear, watery, and smooth (similar to a toner you might use for your skin) but after coming into contact with warm water it transforms into a creamy substance. ? Because it’s water-based, it’s easy to apply and has a faster absorption rate. After rinsing your hair, apply an adequate amount of water treatment to your hair and massage your scalp gently for 10 seconds. Just rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water, and you’re good to go! Amirah even found it to wash off easier compared to conditioner, so it’ll make your hair care routine easier! ?

P.S. The water treatments are an affordable option if you’re looking to try something new with your hair care routine! They cost just $14.50 at Guardian and you can even purchase them online for extra convenience.

If hair loss and scalp care are your main concerns, you can try out KUNDAL’s Head Spa & Scalp Scaling Caffeine Water Treatment instead. The light and smooth water treatment can be applied directly to the scalp, and has the same water-based formula for easy application. It’s formulated with caffeine, tea tree leaf extract, eucalyptus leaf extract, and peppermint oil to combat against hair fall and stimulate healthy hair growth!

KUNDAL’s hair care line also includes shampoos and a scalp spray to complement the water treatments. Hair loss is a common worry faced by hijabis, especially because of friction from covering your hair and scalp for the whole day. While changing the fabric of your headscarf may help, using KUNDAL’s Head Spa & Scalp Care Solution Scalp Spray is a proactive way to face the problem head-on! The spray contains Pinus Densiflora leaf extract, which studies have shown can help to delay hair loss and promote hair growth. The formula also includes caffeine to help stimulate hair growth and get your healthy hair back!

If tackling hair loss is your main focus, complete the range of products with KUNDAL’s Scalp Care+ Caffeine Shampoo. It contains caffeine and 24 plant extracts to nourish and gently cleanse your scalp and hair! ? The formula not only helps with hair loss, but improves your scalp and hair elasticity and shine. Hair loss can feel demotivating at times, but KUNDAL’s products will help you regain your comfort and confidence too.

P.S. Most of KUNDAL’s products come in 4 unique scents - Baby Powder, Cherry Blossom, White Musk, and Ylang Ylang - that were designed by a professional perfumer. Pick out the scent you love the most on Guardian’s website! ?

And of course in a hot country like Singapore, finding a good shampoo is key to tackling the buildup of sweat, grease, and grime that accumulates on your hair and scalp after a long day.  KUNDAL’s Tea Tree & Macadamia Deep Cleansing Shampoo is a pH balanced shampoo that is suitable for sensitive scalps and offers a deep but gentle cleanse. The tea tree leaf extract and peat water in the formula help soothe, moisturize, and detoxify your scalp so you’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated after your shower! ?
