I'm not sure about you guys but do you use the same shampoo throughout the entire year?
I for one have like 3 different shampoos in my bathroom because I'll always need different shampoos for my different needs.
& my parents have been saying I'm taking too much space in the bathroom with all my tubes and bottles of hair products. *Don't blame me mom, blame my erratic hair & scalp!*
I tend to get oily on my scalp if I don't wash my hair every day but if I do wash it daily, then the ends of my hair will be pretty dry. #FirstWorldProblems. To wash or not to wash? Haha.
I'm sure that mostly everyone here have heard of Essential hair care before, a popular brand from Japan. It was such a big hit when it launched a few years back and I was so in love with their products too!! The treatment mask was my must-have in my bathroom every time.
Essential has relaunched their hair series with a
brand new packaging,
and a new variant!
I am so happy that I was sent the entire set so that I can find out what's the best for me!
And as you can tell, they are all easily differentiated by the colors of the bottles and looking at it just makes me happy already. (That's the thing about Japanese products, everything is cuter and prettier)
I know many of you may be clueless about your hair conditions because I was, so you can definitely use the chart above to determine which shampoo range is most suitable for you.
Do you know that similar to skin where there are some who has dry, oily or combination skin.. hair also has the same concept of combination hair? Combination hair is when your hair condition is not uniform from the root to the tip. So I'm sure I have combination hair because my roots tend to be oily and ends dry!
& remember how I mentioned I have many different shampoos? That is because I will alternate between a volumizing one today and a oil controlling one tomorrow. It is really quite a hassle and now I'm so glad that Essential new relaunched series can help solve my problem!
Let's take a look at the entire range of products first.
The Orange series, Nourish and Breaking Defense is for the Weak & Damaged hair.
So if your hair is brittle and breaks at the slightest tug then this is meant for you.
The Hair mask & Treatment tube from the Nourish and Breaking Defense series is a bonus that I treat my hair to every week!
The Treatment Tube is a leave-in treatment, just apply a little and massage it into your hair ends for 30 seconds and you are ready to go! It leaves my hair very moisturized and manageable! So if you are in a rush and can't spend much time on your hair, this is ideal for you.
The Hair Mask is a more intensive treatment to treat those dry/damaged ends, leaving hair softer, smoother and more manageable. I use this at least once a week!
The Pink series, Moisturizing Frizz Free is made for dull & rough hair.
So if you want to add some shine to your hair and tame down that mane, you can try this out!
The Blue series, Deep Cleansing Care is for oily hair & dry ends. So remember what I mentioned about Combination hair earlier on? This is so suitable for me!
The Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variant has the lightest formula and is suitable for people with very oily roots, followed by Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) variant.
The yellow series, Light Finishing Volumizing, is for limp and flat hair.
The Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) and Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variants are suitable for combination hair and have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology to target both problems of roots and hair ends.
So I can now experience the best of both worlds with one product - airy light roots and moisturized ends. *Exactly what I need!!*
Another one of the issues I had besides just having oily scalp & dry ends.. was that my hair was super flat. I have quite a lot of hair but it is just so flat and shapeless all the time. I hated the limpness of it and would sometimes even resort to using texturizing spray on my roots to give it more volume.
I've been using this set of shampoo, conditioner from Essentials for 2 weeks+ now and my hair condition has definitely improved.
& that is from the Light Finishing Volumizing series!
My hair has so much more bounce and volume to it now.
All I do before I head out now is just to blow dry my hair and it has a really good amount of shape to it. I don't have to rely on hairspray anymore! (I really hate using hairsprays, so sticky!)
Thanks to the new combination variants from Essentials, I can now target both my problems at once!
Dry hair ends.
1 solution to end it all!
