Daily styling, such as blow-drying, and even tossing and turning while sleeping can damage your hair. Care for it 24/7 with Essential CC Oil and Night Care Milk, which leave your locks softer, shinier, more manageable and less dry – all day and all night. Three ladies put them to the test.
Fannie Tan, 30, Private trader
HAIR CONCERN: Parched hair that is prone to breakage and split ends, no thanks to constant styling.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS? “The bottles are so compact, they don’t take up much space on my crowded dressing table. And I’m loving their fresh, floral scent.”
AFTER ONE WEEK’S USE: “Both products are lightweight and leave my hair shiny instead of oily. They help tame my flyaway strands too.”
HAVE YOUR HAIRCARE HABITS CHANGED? “Yes. I now apply CC Oil before curling my hair to protect the hair cuticles and add moisture. I also use Night Care Milk nightly – I never quite realised how much hair damage my pillow caused.”
Keep a bottle of Night Care Milk on your bedside table – this will serve as a reminder to use it every night before bed.
Kelly Goh, 27, Bank associate
HAIR CONCERNS: Dry and tangled hair – so far, none of the hair products Kelly has tried have worked.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS? “I was sceptical initially, but I was sold after the first use – both products left my hair smelling divine and with a really noticeable shine.”
AFTER ONE WEEK’S USE: “The CC Oil leaves my hair soft all day. The Night Care Milk also really softens my hair, which no longer sticks to my pillow while I sleep – I think I’m in love!”
HAVE YOUR HAIRCARE HABITS CHANGED? “I take better care of my hair now; I use the oil and night cream daily. I can’t wait to introduce them to my friends and family.”
Pop the handy-sized CC Oil into your handbag for touch-ups on the go.
Agnes Tan, 22, financial consultant
HAIR CONCERNS: An oily scalp and dry hair ends, which are made worse by daily styling.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS? “I love the floral scent, the cute packaging, the portable sizes and the pump dispensers, which make the products so easy to use. After using both just once, my hair was softer and more tangle-free.”
AFTER ONE WEEK’S USE: “My hair is better hydrated and easier to manage; styling it is so much easier.”
HAVE YOUR HAIRCARE HABITS CHANGED? “Certainly. Now, every time I wash my hair, I apply CC Oil while it’s damp, before styling. My hair is now soft er and easier to style, and it smells gorgeous.”
Apply the products only from mid-length to the ends, avoiding the scalp – this section of hair is older and tends to be more damaged.
Essential CC Oil ($11.90 for 60ml) and Night Care Milk ($11.90 for 100ml) are available at pharmacies and supermarkets. Visit www.essentialsg.com for details.
