Although I have short hair, it is also crucial for me to care about my hair. I always have this problem whenever there is a wind blowing—my hair is so flimsy that it will be blown out of place. And I will need to tidy up my hair after that. More ever, I will need to trim my hair frequently- around once in every 1 month as compare to long hair, so that my hair will be neat and without any spilt end. My hair is also slightly damage as I always have the tendency to highlight/dye my hair every 6 months. The chemical from the hair dye has made my hair dry and coarse.
Enough of the woes about my flimsy hair. I am delighted to introduce to you 2 new hair essence

  • Anti-Frizzes Serum &
  • Nourishing Care Lotion
from the Essential hair series.

How did the Japanese girls care for their hair

Ever wonder why the Japanese city girls can maintain their curls or waves despite daily styling and multiple chemical treatments done in pursue of the latest hair trends.

Sh………..This is their little secret. It actually lies in caring for their hair, especially the hair ends which is the ‘oldest’ part of their hair which is harder to manage and most obvious.  That is why Essential, the no 1 Damage Care Brand in Japan, has come out with these 2 new products to counter our hair problems and concerns. Designed as a convenient, fuss-free leave on treatment for damaged, dry hair, Essential Hair Essence from Japan have already make its debut in Singapore in July 2010

Background information about Essential
It is a brand from Japan where (as mentioned above) they focus on the damage care right up to 15cm of the hair.

Why is caring for the last 15cm important?
This is very important as the hair there is the oldest. In fact, it is 1 year older on average as compared to the rest of the hair(for those who have a longer hair). the most torture and most prone to chemical damage-dryness, frizzes, tangles and spilt ends due to coloring, perming. Rebonding styling and blow-drying. Hair ends have gone through the most. On average, it has been permed/coloured/rebounded 2.5x more than the hair crown.
Typically a flat iron or curling tong uses a temperature of 175 degree to style hair-the same as the temperature of used by clothes dryer to wiring out moisture from wet laundry.
Once the hair is subjected to damages, it loses its shine and liveliness and becomes dull.
The 2 series of Essential Damage Care Series 
·     Nuance Airy-By giving hair a light and bouncy feel with a three-dimensional finish, Nuance Airy helps t to move freely and naturally. Wild rose essence leaves a protective layer over hair to keep it soft and moisturized. Suitable for flat and limp hair.

·     Rich Premier-Richly moisturizing , this gives hair a smooth and manageable feel. Sunflower essential oil leaves hair with a glossy, wet-look sheen, keeping it in shape and preventing it from getting puffy. Suitable for untamable hair.

My review of this product: Essential Nuance Airy Anti-Frizz Serum

I simply love this product. After applying on the essence, my hair is much smoother and not as flimsy as before. Now, I do not have to worry when there is a big wind blowing through. And the best part is that I do not have to rinse off after applying unlike the hair mask. I am sure that most of you agree that we have a very busy lifestyle, so time is money. Just spend about 1 minute to apply the essence and you are ready to go.

Essential Rich Premier Nourishing Care Lotion

My review of this product: Essential Rich Premier Nourishing Care Lotion

The result is slightly different. After applying the nourishing care lotion, my hair is softer and more moisturizing. What I like to commenderate about this product is that it is at an affordable price- just $10.90. If you are on a tight budget and can only afford 1 hair care product other than shampoo and condition, I will urge you to buy Essential Hair essence Series. Why? The product is easily absorbed and you will be able to feel the results on your hair immediately. Another plus point is the design of the bottle-it is so sleek that you can just put it in your bag or luggage when you are traveling.
