Aaaaaaaaaaaand we鈥檙e back with another man bun moment.

Throughout this bun-growing journey I embarked on nearly two months ago, I鈥檝e learned a lot, started using a variety of products (biotin, for example) and even squeezed in a little bit of a trim last week. One thing I hadn鈥檛 uncovered until recently, though, is the secret of Korean beauty products. Wow, was I missing out!

After spending the day exploring San Francisco鈥檚 Japantown one weekend, I discovered some creatively packaged hair products. And since I鈥檓 currently in the midst of this lengthy experience, I鈥檓 curious about any and all hair-related items. So when my eyes fell upon a leave-in conditioner whose shape and design were similar to a Heinz Yellow Mustard bottle, I knew I had to investigate.

Turns out it wasn鈥檛 hair mustard (LOL, duh!). The condiment-shaped product was actually TONYMOLY Haeyo Zayo Hair Sleeping Pack ($16 on Urban Outfitters or $22 on Amazon).

I was ready to take the confused-for-a-BBQ-condiment hair helper home and lather it in my mane immediately after reading the label and finding out that it鈥檚 good for all hair types and consists of vanilla extract, lavender oil and coconut. Then once I got to the part that said the hair sleeping pack 鈥渟upplies intensive nourishment to your hair overnight,鈥 I nearly bought it in bulk. No worries 鈥 I restrained myself ;)

Since making the Korean leave-in conditioner a part of my nightly routine for several weeks now (previous pre-bedtime products Marula Oil + Olive Oil Hair Lotion alternate mornings these days) I鈥檝e definitely noticed my hair has felt and looked healthier. It could simply be this overnight remedy or (hopefully) the result of the hodgepodge of tactics I鈥檝e tried to make styling and growing my budding bun easier and more efficient.

When it comes to this particular product, I do have one side note. Though the TONYMOLY product doesn鈥檛 smell as good as you鈥檇 imagine a concoction crafted with vanilla, coconut and lavender would, at least it doesn鈥檛 smell like yellow mustard. Scent aside, it鈥檚 definitely doing its nocturnal work that it promised, and for that I approve.
