Not sure if some of you guys know, but I have bleached my hair more than 5 times over the past year and permed my hair once. After which my hair was dead, of course. But now it's alive again and I'm gonna share with you all the amazing product that made this happen!:-)
ESSENTIAL CC OIL
'CC' in Essential CC Oil stands for cuticle hair!
It shares the same 'multi-functional' approach of a BB or CC cream in skincare. So I guess you can say it's the BB cream of hair care!:-D
Concept of BB/CC Cream = 1 cream with x number of effects (eg. Moisturize, cover blemishes, brighten skin, etc. etc.)
Concept of Essential CC Oil = 1 oil protects your hair from 5 hair stresses
HOW IT WORKS
The CC Oil forms a protective coat around each hair strand and protects your hair from the 5 hair stresses, leaving you with more beautiful, less tangles and manageable hair!
It can be applied any time of the day! Be sure to apply it in the morning too though;-)
Best part? It's not greasy at all AND smells amazing!!!!!!! (Unlike coconut oil)
THE 5 HAIR STRESSES
Now, I mentioned the 5 hair stresses just now. What are these???????:OOOO
The 5 hair stresses are external/environmental factors that contribute to the stresses of your hair. AND WHAT DO THE 5 HAIR STRESSES CONSIST OF????!?!?!! :OOOOOO
1. Blow drying: Heat damage/friction from blow drying
The process of blow-drying removes moisture from the hair, both outside and inside the hair - leaving hair dry, brittle and susceptible for further damage
2. Combing: Friction to the hair cuticles due to daily combing
Combing through wet hair causes great hair damage as the hair follicle is at is most fragile state. Likewise, the friction caused by coming through dry hair can form hair knots which makes hair prone to unnecessary breakage
3. Split Ends: Fraying of hair shaft due to dry and brittle hair
The ends of your hair are the oldest and driest parts. When the protective hair cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair, the hair splits into two or more parts.
4. Hair Breakage
Besides daily heat styling, blow drying and brushing, other seemingly harmless actions like tying your hair into a tight ponytail or twirling your hair with your fingers exert excessive stress on your hair, resulting in hair breakage
5. Dryness: Dry hair that feels rough
Exposure to the sun, wind or even air-conditioning can result in hair dryness. The hair cuticle that protects the hair is weakened and is unable to retain moisture within the cuticles of the hair.
Well, it protects your hair from the friction between your hair and your pillow, caused by tossing and turning at night while sleeping. This is called pillow friction. Pillow friction causes the cuticles to be misaligned, which leads to frizz.
The Night oil protects your hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around each hair strand and prevent misaligned cuticles when hair rubs against the pillowcase, leaving hair more manageable the next morning!
Personally, I love to apply this on my damp hair after I shower!
I bleached my hair about 5 times in total (or even more), and obviously after that it became damaged like HELL. But when I used these products, it really helped to turn my rough and disgusting dreadlocks-looking hair into softer and brushable hair!!!!!!(YES IT WAS SO HARD TO BRUSH THROUGH BEFORE)
Nowadays I don't even have to bother about brushing out any stubborn knots anymore, because I don't wake up with them! In addition, my hair is much softer and many of my friends have noticed:-D
And the best part is........... IT DOESN'T TURN MY HAIR GREASY!!!!!!!!! I've tried SO many hair care products that did moisturise my hair BUT also made my hair INCREDIBLY GREASY which I hated. This product is definitely my holy grail and I thank the heavens for it!
I really really hope this post made a difference in your life because both the CC oil and the Night Care Milk have made a huge impact in mine!
Till next time xoxo
