If you’ve heard of the term “Bed Head”… Sometimes I think this term was coined for me.
You should see my freshly rolled-out-of-bed look, it’s something like…
Messy, unkempt mane of hair.
I have A LOT of hair (I don’t exaggerate, every one of my past and present hair stylists has at least exclaimed once about my generous amount of hair), and now that I’m trying to grow my hair out for my wedding day, the length is getting longer and more unmanageable! 🙁 It’s really annoying at times, especially when I wash my hair before bed time and try to get my hair all nice and neat, but wake up to a sight like this.
And the only way to fix the bad hair is.. To wash my hair again in the morning. Boo! Which means having to drag myself out of bed earlier to do the entire shampoo-wash-rinse-dry-style routine all over again.
I never really understood what’s the cause behind what I call “bed hair”, but I have discovered the main reason.. And it’s something known as Pillow Damage! D:
What happens is that when you toss and turn in your sleep, friction is created, causing hair cuticles to open up unevenly and become rough, frizzy and prone to tangles. And that is why we often wake up in the morning with frizzy and unmanageable hair like a lion’s mane!
And here are the main culprits behind Pillow Damage: Toss, Snap, Tug & Pull, Knot, Tangle and Frizz!
My two most worrisome issues are frizziness, and tangled hair ;( And it’s no joy to try to comb out tangles and yanking away at my hair with my hair brush in the mornings! It results in even more breakage of my already fragile hair, as I try to sort out the untameable mess.
These naughty little imps are at work in the middle of the night, creating havoc and causing damage to our poor tresses, resulting in that terrible bed hair! 🙁
So, how to turn from…. THIS:
My usual bed hair,
Sleek, manageable and tame tresses that actually listen to you and fall right into place without you feeling like pulling your hair out!
My secret is.. Essential Sleeping Hair Mask!
Yes, it is an overnight intensive repair leave-on sleeping mask that helps to protect every single strand of your hair, so that you can wake up to strong, healthy and silly hair that will be a breeze to style and manage on dreaded mornings!
Essential is one of the most well-known Japanese haircare brands in our local market, so you must have heard of it or even tried it before!
Essential offers products ranging from basic care items like Shampoo and Conditioner to Treatment items such as Intensive Hair Mask and Leave On Hair Treatments. Made with natural ingredients, Essential nourishes one’s tresses and effectively cares for damaged hair even up to the last 15cm, which is the oldest and most damaged part of our hair.
So if you are facing the same problem of waking up to a lion’s mane on your head, fret not! Essential Sleeping Hair Mask will definitely be your best friend from now on. I promise, it really works wonders!
As the name suggests already, this is a Sleeping Mask and is to be applied at night, before you sleep! So here’s a guide to how to use Essential Sleeping Hair Mask!
Without applying Sleeping Hair Mask the night before, this is my usual bed hair… Lol. Don’t judge!!!
Sorry, there’s no way to look pretty with bed hair. Haha!
As yo can tell, my hair is quite fine and dry, which means it gets tangled easily if I’m not careful!
But with the Essential Sleeping Hair Mask… GOOD HAIR DAYS ARE NOW MINE!
To put an end to horrible bed hair, all you have to do is to apply Essential Sleeping Hair Mask before you go to bed!
I really like the milky and non-greasy texture of the sleeping mask! It is absorbed easily into the hair and forms a protective layer between each hair strand and your pillow, protecting hair cuticles from Pillow Friction when you toss and turn in your sleep. Which means you won’t find yourself waking up to that unkempt mane in the morning!
At least growing my hair long will be less of a pain if I’m able to keep my hair manageable and healthy!
With Essential Sleeping Hair Mask applied the night before.. Not say I purposely want to make it very obvious, but….. look!!!
Hair that’s a lot more manageable and none of those annoying stray strands and messy tangles! Out of the house in a jiffy 😉
Oh, don’t forget your hair serum too, before you leave the house!
Apply Essential Leave On Serum in the morning before you head out, and the Cuticle Protection Ingredients will form a protective veil over hair to prevent frizz and dryness caused by humidity and UV rays. Just spread the serum evenly onto hair and it invigorates hair, giving it a healthy and lustrous shine while protecting it from the sun!
Daily haircare products apart from the regular hair treatments are really very important to maintain gorgeous, smooth and silky tresses. These products are a god-send! Thank you, Essential!
