Since young, my hair was fine, flat and slightly oily at the scalp. I started rebonding my hair at least twice a year ever since I was 15 as my hair is rather curly and slightly fuzzy, And then the vain me started to dye my hair every 3-4 months after i graduated from JC till now. Hence, my hair has been rather dry at the ends due to the harsh chemical treatments. If I don't use my hair conditioner daily, my hair will be tangled and very dry, However, if i use the hair conditioner daily, my scalp gets oily rather easily and it only takes me around a day for my hair to look oily. Sighhh. totally sucks to be me.
Hence, I was elated when I got the chance to try out the Kao's NEW Essential Haircare Range .
I believe most of you readers out there have heard of Essential before as it is a popular affordable Japanese haircare brand that has been in Singapore for a few years with a range to suit different hair types. I personally like the smell of the products as well as the texture it gave my hair after using it.
So what's so new or good about the NEW Essential Haircare Range?
Besides the fact that it has a new packaging, there is also a new addition to the family such as the Deep Cleansing Care for oily scalp and dry ends (Blue)
Here is 2 charts to show the different types of Essential haircare products that targets different specific hair concerns:
For me, since I have dry and damaged hair ends as well as a little of oily hair scalp, I was given the Essential Damaging Care Shampoo and Conditioner and also Essential Nourishing Breaking Defense Hair Treatment and Hair Mask.
Before using Essential (More hair loss when I comb my hair)
After using Essential (Lesser hair loss when I comb my hair)
After using all 4 products at once since it has been a long time since i went for hair treatment, I realised that the amount if hair fall that i have after my shower has significantly decreased! So happy because i don't have fuller hair to begin with.
I am not even kidding man! After using all 4 products at once, I thought my hair would be really heavy and oily but surprisingly it is not! In fact it just feels that my hair is more nourished and less fizzy. We all know how hair treatments can make our hair real flat but then this one doesn't which is really good! I carried on using the Essential Damaging Care Shampoo and Conditioner for a few days now and I must say that my scalp does not get as oily as before but at the same time my ends are being nourished. The conditioner does not feel really heavy on the hair when applying too and a little goes a long way. I really like the scent of the products too, it is like a mild flowery/fruity scent which is not that overpowering but still keeping the scent in my hair. In addition, my hair looks more lively instead of being flat after conditioning. Hence, I will definitely recommend everyone to get it! :)
Essential Shampoo and Conditioner are both priced at $4.50/200ml and $11.50/750ml and the Essential Hair Mask is priced at $9.90.
