Hello guys!

Well, if you don't already know, I have been an avid user of Essential Hair Care products and have been sticking to this brand ever since Sample Store sent me their products a year back. Essential is crowned as Japan's No. 1 Hair Brand, and have a range of products specially catered to the needs of Singaporean girls to help repair and care for their hair!

Essential offers products ranging from basic care like Shampoo & Conditioner to more intensive treatments like Hair Masks and Leave On Treatments.

This September, Essential relaunches its Leave-On Treatment range with the brand new CC Oil and Night Care Milk. These two products contain Cuticle Coat Protection which leaves hair smooth & tangle-free all day. They also contain Hair Supplement Oil, which is similar to hair’s natural oil.

The purpose of the Leave-On Treatments is to eradicate any forms of stress that your hair has been receiving!

The new Essential CC Oil (similar to a BB or CC cream for skin care) mainly targets the 5 Hair Stresses that plague every girl's hair. They are best used using the day - suitable for both wet and dry hair! Just  squeeze out a few pumps after you shower and apply it on your hair, and wait for it to dry!

These are the Top 5 Hair Stresses that you might not know about that might have been caused by external environment factors or even personal factors! I'm not sure if you took notice of the 5 stress balls above, but they are actually Stress Balls that represents each of the Hair Stresses!

1. Blow drying: 
Heat damage/friction from blow drying The process of blow-drying removes moisture from the hair, both outside and inside the hair - leaving hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage 

2. Combing: 
Friction to the hair cuticles due to daily combing Combing through wet hair causes great hair damage as the hair follicle is at is most fragile state. Likewise, the friction caused by coming through dry hair can form hair knots which makes hair prone to unnecessary breakage 

3. Split Ends: 
Fraying of hair shaft due to dry and brittle hair The ends of your hair are the oldest and driest parts. When the protective hair cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair, the hair splits into two or more parts. 

4. Hair Breakage:
Besides daily heat styling, blow drying and brushing, other seemingly harmless actions like tying your hair into a tight ponytail or twirling your hair with your fingers exert excessive stress on your hair, resulting in hair breakage 

5. Dryness: 
Dry hair that feels rough Exposure to the sun, wind or even air-conditioning can result in hair dryness. The hair cuticle that protects the hair is weakened and is unable to retain moisture within the cuticles of the hair

For the Essential Night Care Milk, it protects your hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand and prevent misaligned cuticles when hair rubs against the pillowcase, leaving hair more manageable the next morning.

What is Pillow Friction?

When you toss and turn at night, there is friction between your hair and the pillow, causing the cuticles to be misaligned - misaligned cuticles creates frizz, resulting in the fabulous lion’s mane the next morning.

Also, washing your hair will ‘reset’ the mane, which is why many women have no choice but to wash and blow dry their hair in the morning before going to work so that they would look prim and proper to head out!

I have been religiously applying them before I sleep and before I blow dry my hair every morning and I love how it helps to tame my tresses and keep them soft and silky!
