049 - Essential Leave On Treatment (CC Oil & Night Care Milk)

Since my last post on Essential haircare in May, I have been using their Deep Cleansing Shampoo and Conditioner religiously because they are really good! My scalp no longer itch and my waist-long tresses are soft and flowy! Now apart from the usual haircare products, Essential has launched 2 new items; the Essential CC Oil and Essential Night Care Milk.

Essential CC Oil
The “CC” in the new Essential CC Oil stands for Cuticle Care. Working similarly to the CC cream in skincare, the CC Oil coats and protects the hair from the 5 usual hair stresses caused by environmental factors and personal habits. 
What are the 5 Hair Stresses?
While many of you may know that heat styling, perming and dyeing can damage your hair, you may not know that the external environmental factors and some of your everyday habits can put stress on your hair and impact its health and appearance.
  1.  Heat damage/ friction from blow drying – the process of blow-drying removes moisture from the hair, both outside and inside the hair, leaving hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage.

  2. 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 combing through dry hair can form hair knots which makes hair prone to unnecessary breakage.

  3. 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 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.

  5. 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.
The Essential CC Oil which is non-greasy and invisibly light, coats each strand of hair with a cuticle coat protection (contains hair supplement oil, similar to hair’s natural oil) to fight the 5 most common forms of hair stresses, leaving hair smooth and tangle-free all day!

 Directions of use:
  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair
  • Pump and appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to the tip of hair
  • Do not rinse off

Essential Night Care Milk
The Essential Night Care Milk protects your hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand and prevent misaligned cuticles when hair rubs against the pillowcase, leaving hair more manageable the next morning.
 What is Pillow Friction?
  1. When you toss and turn at night, there is friction between your hair and the pillow, causing the cuticles to be misaligned.
  2. Misaligned cuticles creates frizz, resulting in you having lion’s mane in the morning. RAWR lol.
  3. 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.

Directions of Use:
  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair, or before blow-drying
  • Can also be used on dry hair
  • Pump an appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to tip of hair
  • Do not rinse off

I really like using the Essential Night Care Milk because it is fuss-free and most importantly allows me to skip bathing in the morning before going to work! >.< More beauty sleep and I do not have to shiver from the cold each day I step out of the shower. Manageable hair (not easy to have manageable hair for my hair length. It tangles really easily!) through the day. So what’s there not to love about the Essential Night Care Milk? Hehe!
Check out my long mane! Although it not exactly silky smooth, it's still soft to the touch and does not tangle when I comb through it with my fingers! :)

So protect your hair and get your Essential CC Oil and Night Care Milk at S$11.90 each! :)
