#93. Samplestore »» Essential Leave On Treatment (CC Oil & Night Care Milk) [ADV]

Hello guys. I'm currently in the middle of my final finals for the year before a well deserved break but as all that comes into play, I've decided to update my space here about these products that I was recently introduced to.

You know the phrase that is always by my mouth, “头可断,头发不可乱”, translated to it's ok if I lose my mind but it's not ok if my hair is messy.Well, I take it very seriously. Especially with my never dying obsession towards my long hair, I make it a point to pamper them with lots of products no matter how busy I am.

P.S. My hair is towards the dry and frizzy side ever since I straighten my hair years ago and went through multiple colouring sessions as time passes. We can pretty much call it a mane now.

However, I realised that it's not the amount of products you use that matters but it's the type of products you use that makes a difference.

Essential's brand new Night Care Milk & CC Oil.

Essential Night Care Milk protects our hair from pillow friction by leaving a protective coat around eau hair strand and prevents misaligned cuticles when our hair rubs against the pillowcase, leaving it to be more manageable the next morning.

So I guess now you'll ask, what is pillow friction? There is friction between our hair and the pillow when we toss and turn at night, causing the cuticles to be misaligned, resulting in frizz that creates the 'fabulous' lion's mane the next morning. Of course washing then blow drying our hair the next morning would 'reset' the mane but I would definitely prefer to have a longer beauty sleep instead of going through this hassle and routine.

This is why the Essential Night Care Milk is my cure to it all! It intensively repairs and nourishes the hair in the wee hours of the night with it's rich yet non-greasy weightless milk formula that leaves our hair smooth and manageable the next morning.


  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair, or before blow-drying
  • Can also be used on dry hair before bed too
  • Pump an appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to tip of hair
  • Do not rinse off!

For better results, ensure that hair is completely dry before going to bed 
Moving on, the Essential CC Oil. It forms a protective coat around each hair strand and protects our hair from the 5 evil hair stresses, giving us a more manageable, less tangles and prettier hair. Plus I bet you didn't know that the CC in it's name stands for Cuticle Care. It has the same concept as the well-known BB/CC creams in make-up sections, with a number of benefits fitted into one product, 1 oil protecting our hair against the 5 hair stresses.


  • Use on towel-dried or damp hair
  • Pump an appropriate amount onto palm
  • Spread and apply evenly onto hair, concentrating on mid-length to the tip of hair
  • Do not rinse off!

For optimum results, use after Essential shampoo and conditioner

So I guess now you'll ask, what are these 5 evil hair stresses I keep talking about. They are my 5 biggest nemesis since I experienced all of them first hand.

Firstly, the Badass Breakage stress. This stress grew up in a tough environment peppered with violence, relishes in the sound of breaking hair strand and make them it's personal mission to snap as many as possible. Having won the hair breakage award for ten years running now, it has earned the title of being the ultimate badass around the neighbourhood.

Secondly, the Brazen Blow-Drying stress. This stress partners the seemingly innocent hair dryer to blast our poor cuticles with angry heat each time we blow dry our hair. It finds it's pride in drying hair into crisp stalks of hair, hitting you when you least expect.

Thirdly, the Spiteful Split Ends stress. This stress, armed with a black belt in hair karate can slice hair perfectly in a split second without even looking. Born with a strong desire to be unkind, it relishes any opportunity to practice it's precise art of maliciousness on gorgeous and healthy hair. Can you imagine that it's personal record for slicing hair is up to ten splits in one slice!!?

Fourthly, the Despicable Dryness stress, the double Ds. This stress loves to ruin happy endings and loathes the sight of gorgeous hair, absorbing moisture like a desert so that it can stay moist and bouncy itself.

Lastly, the Cruel Combing stress. It is quite impossible to avoid falling into this since it practically stalks you while you're getting ready for school or prepping for a date. Even when you're trying to look good, this stress uses it's cruel power to drag your hair painfully at every stroke of the comb. Very very knotty indeed.

The cure to them all? Well, for me there's only 1 but of you there might be 3.

Option 1. What I introduced above, the Essential Night Care Milk & CC Oil.

Option 2. Put this bucket over your head and viola! Like the age-old ostrich mentality, "If you can't see them, they can't see you too".

Option 3. The ultimate stress relief action. Some good ol' head banging moves. For better aiming and accuracy, do use the photo.

Be wise and make a good choice. Since after all, for option 1, both the Essential CC Oil & Night Care Milk are only retailing at $11.90 each.
