Essential: Good Hair Day Everyday


What's your definition of a good hair day? My hair is extremely straight, limp and flat, so a good hair day for me would be one where my hair looks smooth, silky and bouncy instead of limp and flat. 

When I received the box of Essential hair products with new formula, I was over the moon as it has been one of the brands which I use and adore, simply for the fact that it makes my hair feel really soft and nice-smelling after every wash, so I can't wait to start using the new Essential products. P.s I don't really like shampoos that are liquidy, so I prefer those that are more creamy or foamy. 

Not sure if you have heard of the saying that everyone should switch shampoos after some time to prevent your hair from getting "immune" to the effect, I have heard of it recently from a friend so I guess there is no better time for me to try the new Essential.


The new formula comes in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and types: 

Nourishing Breakage Defense (Orange): For weak and damaged hair
Moisturizing Frizz Free (Pink): For dull and rough hair
Light Finish Volumizing (Yellow): For flat and limp hair
Deep Cleansing Care (Blue): For oily scalp and dry ends


Combination Hair

The yellow and blue variants have technology that caters to people with combination hair, which is hair with oily scalp or roots, yet dry ends. Pretty similar to combination skin, combination hair is where one's hair condition is not the same from root to tip. That sounds pretty much like my hair at times, especially in sunny and humid Singapore. 


After doing a round of hair analysis: 
1. Do you have oily hair roots/scalp?
2. Do you have dry/damaged hair ends? 

I belong to the "Yes, a little" for both questions. So here goes, my special set of hair products tailored to fit my hair type. And because the yellow bottles are perfect for people with combination hair, I get to solve both problems of oily scalp and dry ends with just one solution! Hooray to airy light weight roots and moisturized ends.

Moisturizing Frizz-free Treatment and Hair Mask

As for the treatment tube, it moisturizes and manages your hair so that it will be frizz-free! The hair mask provides a better solution for dry or damaged ends, ensuring your hair to be softer, smoother and more manageable. Note to only apply the treatment and mask to your ends only, not the scalp. 


Thank you Sample Store and Essential for sending me these lovely products! No more bad hair days for me :) My hair feels so much lighter and smoother now, no more frizzy ends or limp hair.
