032 - NEW! Essential Light Finish Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Most of us have heard of combination skin types, but have you heard of combination hair types?

In fact, I have not heard of such term until last week! Most of the off-the-shelf shampoos and conditioners I've seen usually only label normal/ dry/ oily hair type but never combination hair type!

So what is combination hair type?

The concept of ‘combination hair’ is similar to that of ‘combination skin’, where hair condition from the same person is not uniform from root to tip. People with combination hair usually have oily roots and dry ends. 

People with combination hair currently do not have one haircare product which they can use to solve both problems of oily roots and dry ends. Using a rich moisturising product to care for their dry ends usually ends up having too much product build-up on their scalp, resulting in a heavy, oily scalp. Using a light, clarifying product to care for their oily scalp will then cause their ends to be even drier. As a result, people with combination hair will either have only one out of the two problems solved, or they have to rotate between using a rich moisturising product and a light clarifying product to achieve a balance.

I am sure many of you, like me, have no idea what is combination hair until now because no haircare brands have talked about it. But hey, now there's one who does!

Essential haircare range has relaunched with new, improved formula and technology. 
Now, Essential is available in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and types:
- Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) – for weak & damaged hair
- Moisturising Frizz Free (pink) – for dull & rough hair
- Light Finish Volumising (yellow) – for flat and limp hair
- Deep Cleansing Care (blue) – for oily scalp & dry ends (new)

Out of these 4 variants, the yellow and blue variants have technology that caters to people with combination hair – oily scalp/roots yet dry ends.

New Essential Light Finish Volumising (yellow) and Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variants have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology to target both problems of roots and hair ends. As a result, consumers experience the best of both worlds with one product - airy light roots and moisturised ends!

New Essential also has Microfine All Smooth Essence which delivers nutrients to repair damaged hair surface from root to tip. Conventional technology concentrates mainly at the roots only.Hair feels surprisingly smooth when you finger comb through whether wet or dry. With the absence of tangles, water does not get trapped between the tangles hence blow-drying your hair is also faster!

So here comes your next question.

How do you choose the most suitable variant for your hair type?

No fret! Essential has all of these covered for you! Simply ask yourself these 2 questions:

1. Do you have oily hair roots/ scalp?
2. Do you have dry/ damaged hair ends?

Match your answers to the matrix below and there you have what's best for you!

Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variant has the lightest formula and is suitable for people 
with very oily roots, followed by Light Finish Volumising (yellow) variant. People with very dry/damaged hair should use the richest formula Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) variant for treatment and mask while the rest can use the Moisturising Frizz Free (pink) variant which is comparatively lighter!

I have been given the Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) shampoo and conditioner because I don't really have an oily scalp but I do have dry hair ends. Used together with the Moisturising Frizz Free (pink) treatment and mask, my hair now looks much more tamed and manageable after a week! My hair is now more moisturised and is much softer and smoother to the touch! There's significantly less tangles in my hair (especially obvious when I comb through my wet hair!) and not forgetting to mention how the great the smell is too!

My favourite product of all! The improved treatment now works its magic on the hair in just 30 seconds! Perfect for busy and lazy days! Oh do take note that treatment or mask SHOULD NOT be applied on the scalp. They should be applied to hair ends only! :)

Me now has nice flowy hair!
