review: Essential CC Oil & Night Care Milk

this month, Essential launched their new leave on treatment range with the brand new CC Oil & Night Care Milk. i'm pretty excited with their launching as my hair always in a need for a treatment products and Essential is one of my favorite hair care brand in the market.
do you know what external environmental factors and own personal habits contribute to stress our hair?
*each one below represent the yellow balls above with their frustration faces*

blow drying: heat damage/friction
the process of blow drying removes moisture from the hair, both outside & inside of the hair - leaving hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage

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

split ends: fraying of hair shaft due to dry and brittle hair
the end 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

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 

dryness: dry hair that felt 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
Essential CC Oil comes to help with the 5 factors above. and CC stands for Cuticle Care. CC Oil forms a protective coat around each hair strand and protects hair from the 5 factors above leaving hair smooth and tangle-free all day!
after towel drying, dispense an approriate amount onto palm.
spread and apply evenly onto wet or dry hair, concentrating on mid-length to tip. 
do not rinse off

my review:
this is the results on "before" & "after" usage of CC Oil. overall, i'm a very satisfied customer on this product. my hair tends to get frizzy and tangle easier this day and i have to use huge amount of conditioner to prevent hair knots. i tried applied CC Oil in the morning before i off to work and after application, i was amazed with the results. the formula is light-weight and not greasy at all, my hair felt smoother and i can't stop smelling my hair because of the floral fragrance in the CC Oil.

beside the 5 factors of hair stresses, there is another type calls Pillow Friction! and what is it?

pillow friction is:
  • 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
  • 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 1) these women may not have the habit of bathing in the morning and is only doing so just so to fix their hair 2) they would rather have more time for their beauty sleep than go through this hassle and routine of washing and blow-drying in the morning
Essential Night Care Milk is to protect your hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand and prevent misaligned cuticles when hair rubs against the pillow cases leaving hair more manageable next morning.

my review:
i applied night care milk before i went to sleep the other night. the formula is creamy, rich and non-greasy milk easily absorbed into my hair and leave a great floral scent. the next morning, my hair didn't went as crazy as before and manageable too. the greatest thing is i don't have to comb my hair! save me a lot of time :)
both products are definitely my go-to-hair-products-everyday now. and the packaging are definitely suitable for me to do traveling too, which did not used up a lot of space.

Essential CC Oil: S$11.90
Essential Night Care Milk: S$11.90
Both products are available at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies

I never knew that so much went into hair care! I dyed my hair over the summer so I'll probably need to be taking better care of it :P Thanks for sharing! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
