The Power of 50 Megumi Hair Anti Hair Loss Series

Every Woman Can Now Maintain Their Crowning Glory with
50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Series

Receding hairlines, thinning hair and hair loss used to be an issue that’s associated to ageing and are more commonly experienced by men. However, more and more young women in their late 20s and 30s are experiencing hair loss sooner than expected. Fewer than 45 per cent of women live their lives with a head full of hair. Studies have shown that hair loss can be caused by numerous factors which include poor diet, hormonal changes, effects of medication, hair treatments and others.

Me trying out 50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Treatment Essence

Women who experienced hair loss often also experience psychological distress and impaired social functioning as a result of it. Hair loss can happen when more follicles than normal go from Anagen phase (growing phase) to Catagen phase (transition phase) and when these hairs reach the Exogen phase (shedding phase), hair will appear thinner. The Telogen phase (resting phase) takes place right after the Catagen phase and it is during this phase that new hair grows beneath the existing hair before it sheds. The Telogen phase lasts between three to four months. Therefore, it is important that we ensure proper nourishment on the hair scalp during the Anagen phase to promote thicker and stronger hair.

In addressing these hair issues, Rohto Pharmaceutical in Japan has recently found a breakthrough formula that could reduce hair loss and recover hair volume by using 50 precious natural herbal ingredients, which essentially gave the new product its name – 50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Series. Among some of the 50 nourishing herbal ingredients found in the 50 Megumi products include:

·         ❤  Panax Ginseng and Ginger root extract to strengthen hair roots
·          Swertia Japonica extract to protect against hairfall
·           Hydrolised Collagen to prolong hair life cycle
·          Natural orange and lemon extract to enhance deep penetration into scalp

The other vital ingredients also include Shea Butter, Macadamia Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Pine Cone Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Sunflower Seed Oil, Seaweed Extract, Caffeine, Pueraria Root Extract, Rosemary Extract and Jojoba Oil – all of which also helps prevents hair loss and helps increase hair volume.

The 50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Series includes an Anti Hair Loss Treatment as well as two variants of shampoo and conditioner namely, Moist and Fresh.

50 Megumi consist of 50 carefully selected precious herbal ingredients to help combat hair loss by strengthening the hair roots and promote thicker and healthier hair right up to ensuring scalp's health. The name of the brand means 50 gifts which is the availability of 50 plant extracts. It has a slight cooling sensation upon contact with scalp.

The 50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Treatment Essence, 160ml (RM150.00) is a must-have product in this Anti Hair Loss series. The treatment essence is an important haircare step against hair loss prevention. Just like the essence that is applied onto your face, the thin consistency of the treatment essence absorbs instantly into the scalp and hair in delivering all the necessary nourishment and nutrients needed.

Step 1: Shampoo
Step 2: Conditioner
Step 3: Essence

Once hair is dry, gently press the essence bottle top on the affected areas, and massage gently. Rinsing is not required. It has a slight minty cooling sensation.

 Works as a leave-in treatment, the treatment essence helps to strengthen the roots of the hair, increase hair volume and reduce hair loss. Apply the treatment essence after hair is cleansed and conditioned. Massage a small amount onto the scalp and hair, and leave it to dry. The texture is light, watery and not sticky therefore the hair feels light even after application. Moreover, the citrusy scent of orange and lemon leaves the hair smelling fresh! For visible results, apply the treatment essence at least twice daily continuously for up to four months on dry or wet hair before styling. To achieve optimal results against hair loss, the treatment essence is best paired with the 50 Megumi Anti Hair Loss Shampoo and Conditioner series.

Let's main masak-masak with Ajinomoto's Rasa Sifu

With “Rasa Sifu”, the first of its kind in the market, now everyone can achieve that unique ‘wok taste’ in their cooking.

Amid much clanging of utensils, chefs in restaurants are often seen showing off their skills, tossing ingredients about and constantly stir-frying. Sometimes, the food catches fire and just as suddenly, the flame dies out.

Cooking is made so much easier and faster with “Rasa Sifu” all-in-one seasoning that comes in powder form. The ‘oyster sweetness’ is among the unique flavour of this powdered seasoning. It contains just the right proportion of basic seasoning, oyster flavoured sauce, well-sautéd garlic and onion, and other special ingredients to enhance your cooking with that special wok-taste and oyster sweetness. 

“Rasa Sifu” also makes frying vegetables more delicious than before so your Children will now enjoy eating them more which increases the intake of greens resulting in a more balanced diet. Going out to eat would be a thing of the past as you can now easily whip up delicious, appetising meals that are consistently tasty. Eating at home more often is not only healthier as you know exactly what goes into the food, it also promotes family bonding. Thanks to your new secret ingredient, you will impress family and friends with your dishes, and what's more, you get to save money! 
“Rasa Sifu” offers a whole new taste experience, so make sure you pick up a packet today! Sold at supermarkets, hypermarkets, grocery stores and convenience stores, “Rasa Sifu” is available in 20g, 100g and 300g packs.
