Make Like a Geisha with this Shampoo and Conditioner

Today's pick comes from Racked Vegas editor Susan Stapleton.

Shiseido Tsubaki Shining Shampoo with Tsubaki Oil, $14.99, and Shiseido Tsubaki Shining Conditioner with Tsubaki Oil, $15.99, both via Amazon

Shh. I've been cheating on my regular shampoo and conditioner, and I've fallen in love. Shiseido's Tsubaki Shampoo and Conditioner contain red camellia flower oil, which geishas used to use to tame their hair. The oil prevents frizziness and flyaways (although honestly, with the dry weather in Las Vegas, it's tough to have a bad hair day). And the heady fragrance alone makes me want to toss out all of my other hair products.

While you can buy both the shampoo and the conditioner on Amazon, try to find a local Asian market for better prices on this brand, which is common in pharmacies in Japan. In Las Vegas, the Greenland Supermarket carries it.
