[AD] Essential CC Oil and Night Care Milk

17.9.15



Alright, so if you know anything about me at all, it's that I love rocking wild hair colours. Which sadly requires taking a massive load of damage to my hair from constant bleaching. I rely heavily on hair care products and DIY masks to keep my hair healthy on top of regular trims. Which includes of course, Hair Oils and Milk. I was excited(as I always am) to get to try out these Essential products, I guess you can pretty much call me a fangal of their hair care products.


Essential is a popular haircare brand from Japan. Understanding the needs of Asian and Singaporean girls and their hair woes, Essential has created a wide range of products to help repair and care for hair. They offer products ranging from basic hair care needs such as Shampoo & Conditioner to more intensive treatments like Hair Masks and Leave On Treatments.

This September, Essential has relaunched its Leave On Treatment range with 2 brand new products,

The Essential Night Care Milk and CC Oil


 Moving on to the introduction of these 2 products...

The Essential CC Oil 
The ‘CC’ in the new Essential CC Oil stands for Cuticle Care and just like BB/CC Cream, it is basically an oil with a multiple number of effects. While BB/CC Cream is able to moisturize, cover blemishes, brighten skin and etc, CC Oil is able to protect your hair from 5 hair stresses

Basically the CC Oil forms a protective coat around each hair strand and protects your hair from the 5 hair stresses, leaving you with more manageable hair. 

So what are these 5 Hair Stresses?
Well, they are external environmental factors and your own personal habits that contributes to stresses to your hair.



1. Blow drying: Heat damage/friction from blow drying .The process removes moisture from the hair, both outside and inside each strand

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 its 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 styling and habits: Besides daily heat styling and blow drying, 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

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

I use this everyday (that I remember to hahaha) just pump once or twice, spread them between both hands and run them through the bottom half of your hair. I usually apply them ear length down.



The Essential CC Oil is retailing now at just $11.90 (60ml)

The Essential Night Care Milk
The Essential Night Care Milk Protects your hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand which prevents misaligned cuticles when your hair rubs against your pillow which leaves hair more manageable the next morning.


Pillow Friction occurs when you toss and turn at night as there is friction between your hair and the pillow, causing the cuticles to be misaligned. Misaligned cuticles then creates frizz, resulting in your sexy(or horrific) bed head the next morning. Washing your hair eventually ‘resets’ your mane, which is why some ladies have no choice but to wash and blow dry their hair the next morning. That basically takes up like 30 minutes in the morning alone, 20 minutes to shower and 10 minutes to blow dry and wait how about time to pick an outfit and put on some make up?!!?! 






Apply a pump or 2 or 3 or 4 depending on how much your hair requires at night before heading to bed and viola! Trust me, your mornings are going to feel much less dreadful.

I also especially love its smell and form. It will not feel oily while you are trying to fall asleep and I think it's essential that a night time hair mask smells good (see what I did there)
HAHAHA OK EXCUSE MY LAME JOKE SORRY THANK YOU

You can grab one of these Night Care Milks at $11.90 (100ml)


These 2 products are definitely going to be a part of my hair care routine for a long time to come because for their affordable price of just $11.90 each, I can't find a reason not to love em.
