Do you know?
Just like facial skin having oily and dry zones, which commonly known as “Combination Skin”, hair that exhibits such mixed behaviors like oily roots and dry ends is known as “Combination Hair” too!
Light, clarifying shampoo tends to target oily roots while leaving the hair ends to be really dry.
Likewise for the rich moisturizing shampoos that targets the hair ends but may be too rich for the scalps, and resulting in build-up that makes scalp oily!
Moreover, depending on the thoroughness of scalp massage during shampooing, the scalp build-up may not be thoroughly washed off, further causing the scalp to feel oily in a shorter time.
Today, I am going to share with you Essential latest range of hair care products that I had received recently and is in love with it–
ESSENTIAL LIGHT FINISH and ESSENTIAL DEEP CLEANSING CARE series.
If our face does need to alternate between normal facial care and deep cleansing care to maintain a clean clear skin, so does our scalps too! Afterall, especially for those with longer hair will understand the importance of a healthy scalp too. Nobody loves having oily scalp, who does anyway?
What’s new with this new ESSENTIAL Series?
Essential Light Finish Volumizing (The yellow packaging) and the Deep Cleansing Care (In Blue packaging) variants brings the best of both worlds (light and fluffy or refreshing feeling).
With the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care and Sebum Cleansing Technology, one can now achieve moisturized hair ends while maintaining a refreshing, yet breathable scalp! Combination hair woes be gone!
The Light Finish Volumizing series for those who is looking at airy light feeling at the roots and the Deep Cleansing Series leaves oily hair refreshed at the roots while both moisturized at the ends!
My personal favorite is definitely the deep cleansing series! I tend to look for shampoos that can really cleanse my hair as I use quite an amount of styling products except when I am not working, so I really needed something to get all the dirt and residue out of my hair and scalp, especially when I am shuffling in between indoor and out in the sun!
So I tried the Essential Deep Cleansing series for close to a week now and to be honest, I am truly impressed! I really love how it manages my hair after shampooing.
To be honest, my hair roots area are really less oily than before, (not saying my hair is really oily before, I just don’t like the feeling of having even the slightest oil on my roots, it just makes people think that as though I did not wash my tames for a day or two!), it just makes my scalp feels so refreshing and mild cooling sensation after shampooing, while leaving a hint of mint/menthol-like fragrance on my hair.
I always have issue with drying and combing of hair after shower, as my hair tends to tangles, especially when it is still wet, however, I realize that it is slightly manageable now after frequent usage of the new series though!
How many of us faces issues with getting our hair wash and at the same time secretly wishes that our newly done manicure can be as long lasting as ever.
While it costs a real bomb to head to salon to get our tames washed and massaged by professionals in the long run, some people would invest on hair washing tools to aid with hair cleansing and massaging at their own comfort space.
With plenty of hair massaging tools available in the market, what makes the Essential Massage Shampoo Brush stand out?
My answer would be the comfort level this brush is. In my personal opinion, this brush is really handy and the arch of the outside of the brush allows the palm to rest comfortably while using, the same theory as finding a comfortable mouse to use. Using human engineering, it allows the user to comfortably use the brush without feeling comfortable on their palm.
Unlike some other massage shampoo brushes that I had used before previously, the bristles, or the massaging teethes are really soft and flexible, hence allowing the user to massage their scalps without feeling pain or hard. Gone were the days of hard, small, inflexible teething of those brush.
Do you know the benefit of using a massage shampoo brush? Just like when we using body gloves or scrubs to remove those dirt, sebum and dead skin on our face and body, the massage shampoo brush helps to remove dirt and sebum more effectively from the scalp, and it is actually a common haircare tool in Japan used by the majority of Japanese women though!
The massaging action on the scalp also helps improve blood circulation and promote relaxation, that is also the reason why many would go to the salon to have their hair washed!
