HELLO you girls~!!! How many of you have combination hair like i do?!

You be like.. "What is she talking about?"

Pretty sure we heard of combination skin.. But combination hair? It is actually a very common problem we face but there's just no perfect-fit haircare for it becox there's no one product that works perfect for different parts of our scalp / roots / hair!

So we often have to switch between shampoo on alternate days or we just have to make-do with solving one problem out of two or more that we have.

For example someone with oily scalp AND dry hair would find herself in dilemma on which kind of shampoo to get. Something light (but possibly drying or not nourishing enough for your dry and damaged hair) for your scalp and roots OR something moisturizing (but causes your scalp to have buildups and feels heavy and oily) for your damaged hair.

I say is say "someone" lah O.O Actually that is my dilemma LOL. All of you probably know by now i have very dry hair. I'm born with natural curl that is frizzy and crazy all at the same time =(

But my scalp / roots is slightly oily!!! As in after one day.. It starts to feel a bit like.. Old oil. LOL. BUT BUT BUT i can only smell that if i go rub my scalp and then smell my fingers O.O

Don't tell me NONE of you do that. LOLOL. Anyway yeah! I sometimes even have white particles at my scalp. They are 100% not dandruff! It's just buildups from my moisturising shampoo =((

♥︎ ♥︎ ♥︎ NEW ESSENTIAL ♥︎ ♥︎ ♥︎

Sorry must caps all the way lolol!!! Cox it's SOOOOO freaking exciting!!!

After trying it, i must say it's REVOLUTIONARY!!! And it is so awesome, it will make us make an INSTANT SWITCH to the NEW ESSENTIAL from our current shampoo!

As you can see, the new and improved formula comes in new packaging as well! Love how everything is still so cheery and colourful =D But the technology used is much more sophisticated! It caters to people with combination hair - oily scalp / oily roots WITH dry ends! (sounds familiar?)

Now, Essential is available in 4 variants to suit all hair needs and types:

* Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) *

* Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) *

* Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) *

* Deep Cleansing Care (blue) --- This is NEW!!! *

Out of these 4 variants, the yellow and blue variants have technology that caters to people with combination hair i.e oily scalp/roots yet dry ends. Both of them have the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care and Sebum Cleansing Technology to target both problems of roots and hair ends.


I'm talking about something that can give you the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

A shampoo and conditioner that will give you healthy, airy and clean scalp PLUS soft smooth hair ends that are moisturised~!!!

But there's FOUR variants (and more combinations out of the four!) to choose from so..


How do you choose the correct variant for your hair type?!

Ask yourself the two questions and choose from the matrix below:

1.    Do you have oily hair roots/scalp?

2.    Do you have dry/damaged hair ends?

Got your answer?! Simple yes?! =D

A very straight forward graph. Deep Cleansing Care (blue) variant has the lightest formula and is suitable for people with very oily roots, followed by Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) variant.

So you wanna make a guess which one is for me?!

The least expected one lolol.

Light finishing volumizing range for limp and flat hair!!! In case you don't know, my natural hair state is limp and flat at the crown with crazy pong and dry hair ends lolol.
So i've been trying the NEW Essential Light Finishing Volume range for limp and flat hair and been loving it since! It comes in 750ml as well! It's super easy to brush my hair through still! In fact i think easier! And blowdrying also gives a smoother hair result! BUT IMPORTANTLY, my scalp don't have those white buildups particles no more!!!! =DDD

For those who have oily scalp but still wanna have smooth soft hair, you don't have to use moisturizing shampoo just to keep washing your hair to prevent your scalp from getting oily!

Now you can find out what's the perfect-fit for your hair! =D

Of course to keep your hair ends in the tip top condition.. Other than a suitable shampoo and conditioner, you also need treatment and hair mask! =D

The improved treatment tube now works its magic on your hair in just 30 seconds! The result you get after is deeply moisturized and manageable hair. Perfect for busy days!!! =D
On top of all that, you could always choose the hair mask which is a more intensive treatment to treat those dry/damaged ends, leaving hair softer, smoother and more manageable! AND IT SMELLS SO HEAVENLYYYY!!! =OOO Really really cannot resist each time i open up the hair mask O.O

How to Choose the Correct Treatment and Hair Mask for your Hair Type?
Your answers here~!

So if you're someone with very dry/damaged hair (like me T.T), you should use the richest formula Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) variant for treatment and mask while the rest of you girls can use the Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) variant which is comparatively lighter.

Of course take note that you should not apply treatment/ mask on your scalp! Apply to hair ends only.

As usual.. Good products always convince you with free samples first so you can make your own purchase with confidence that you're getting something that WORKS.

Remember to "Like" Essential on Facebook for more updates and promo okay! And if you are on instagram, check out @EssentialSingapore! ^.^

So this is now my ultimate winning combination despite having combination hair! HAH! =D And i don't have to switch between Josh's light-wash shampoo and my deep-moisturising shampoo anymore!!! =DDD Now i simply switch to the NEW Essential ; )
