I introduced and reviewed Essential’s combination haircare range some time back in October 2014, so I won’t be going too deep into it in this entry. Do check that entry out too!
But just a quick recap of what this range can do for you…
If you’re aware of what ‘combination skin’ is (a combination of dry and oily zones on your face), then ‘combination hair’ is exactly the same concept — oily scalp with dry ends. Essential has a range of shampoos and conditioners to help combat this problem.
If you scalp is just a little oily but you have dry ends, you can try the Light Finish Volumizing (yellow) range. If you have a very oily scalp and dry ends, you can try the Deep Cleansing Care (blue) range.
These two ranges are optimised with a combination of Smart Cuticle Care and Sebum Cleansing Technology to clarify the oily roots and moisturise the dry ends at the same time.
And for a limited time only, Essential will be giving out a massage shampoo brush with every purchase of a shampoo and conditioner set. They come in two colours: pink and green. The kind people at Essential and The Sample Store sent the products for me to try out, so I’m going to tell you a little more about this cute round massage brush.
The massage shampoo brush is commonly used in Japan to help remove dirt and sebum effectively from the scalp. The massaging action on the scalp also helps to improve blood circulation and promote relaxation.
To use it effectively, first, you wet and shampoo your hair as usual. Then you hold the brush between your index and middle fingers. Rub the bristles onto your scalp gently from side to side with small movements. Do not move the brush in circular motions as it will cause your hair to tangle. The rubber tips of the massage shampoo brush are firm yet not too hard, so it’ll give your scalp a good “scratch” but not hurt you.
The brush is great especially for people who are go for regular manicures. Who wants to spoil their nicely painted nails from shampooing their hair? Using a massage shampoo brush will help to prolong your fancy nails.
To properly store the brush, rinse it with water and place it upside down or hung from a string in a well-ventilated place. Do not place the brush with its bristles in direct contact to the surface as it may damage the bristles over time.
The haircare sets will be available from mid-May 2015 at leading supermarkets and personal care stores. Each pack retails at $19.60 and comes with a 750ml bottle of shampoo and conditioner and a free massage shampoo brush.
