Your Perfect Solution to Combination Hair: Essential

I am the kind of people with combination types. I have “Combination Skin” with oily t-zone and normal cheek, and I also have “Combination Hair”! *pulls hair*

What is “Combination Hair”?
Hair that exhibits mixed behaviour like oily roots and dry ends is known as ‘Combination Hair’.

I am sure many people share the same problem as me. Especially for those of us in Sunny Singapore, we sweat so easily so we have oily scalp which makes our hair looks flat and oily. Also, for those of us who are fashionable people, we also do many chemical hair treatments that caused us to have dry ends!!

To solve our hair problem, we usually use two types shampoos to target the two problems:

  1. Light, clarifying shampoos target oily roots but cause hair ends to be dry.
  2. Rich moisturizing shampoos target the dry ends but may be too rich for the scalp, resulting in build-up that makes the scalp oily.

Well, I shared about Essential Deep Cleansing Care (blue) late last year! This time I also received the Essential Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) from SampleStore!!!! Thank you!!!! <3

Sebum Cleansing Technology – Combination Hair Woes Be Gone!

The new improved Essential range brings the best of both worlds to you! With the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology in the Light Finish Volumizing and Deep Cleansing Care variants, you can now achieve moisturised hair ends while maintaining a refreshed, breathable scalp!


A recap of Essential’s 4 variants that are suitable for all hair needs and types:

  • Nourishing Breakage Defense (orange) for weak & damaged hair
  • Moisturizing Frizz Free (pink) for dull & rough hair
  • Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) for flat and limp hair
  • Deep Cleansing Care (blue) for oily scalp & dry ends

After reading the press release, I learned is that if we did not thoroughly do scalp massage when we shampoo, the scalp build-up may not be removed properly, thus making our scalp to feel oily in a shorter time. IT IS NOT EASY TO BE A WOMAN, especially in Singapore!!!!!!! Oily and sweaty weather everyday!! *cries*

With the optimum combination of Smart Cuticle Care & Sebum Cleansing Technology, I can now achieve moisturized hair ends while maintaining a refreshed breathable scalp! 😀

For a limited time only, Essential is also giving out a massage shampoo brush with purchase of shampoo and conditioner.



A massage shampoo brush is a common haircare tool in Japan and is used by the majority of Japanese women to help remove dirt and sebum more effectively from the scalp. The massaging action on the scalp also helps improve blood circulation and promote relaxation. Now we can have scalp massage at the comfort of our house without going to the salon!

So now I have been using the Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) for flat and limp hair since now I have permed hair! I love how soft my hair is like after every wash and conditioning and the volume I get at the crown of my head and also my waves! 😀

I love how the massage shampoo brush thoroughly cleaned my scalp buildup, and at the same time giving my scalp a comfortable massage!! This aids in blood circulation and promotes relaxation+hair growth!! I also realized that my hair/scalp doesn’t feel as oilier as before!  Now I look forward to washing my hair every night!! *RELAX* Working life is hard and so is blogging life… lol. Not complaining though since I am doing something I love 😀


AND…. I know in the picture…. I am shameful to say that my gelish nails chip so much!!!!! So for those who love painting their nails, using this brush will help to prolong your manicure! LOL!! 😀

Since I have 2 of the brushes now, I use both to wash and massage my hair and scalp. MUHAHAHAHHA!!!!!! I think my hair will grow even faster now!!!
