If you read my blog you will know i am always on the search to find a good hair treatment, this week i purchased 'Essential Rich Premier' hair treatment. This hair mask provides intensive care, especially for the last 15cm of hair, which is most prone to dryness, tangles and split ends caused by chemical treatments and styling.It penetrates deeply into the hair core to repair and moisturize without the heavy feel, so hair becomes easy to manage and style.
After seeing Xiaxue's blog post on this hair treatment i had to try it. Her hair looked amazing! Whether or not hers was an advert - i was sold!
I bought mine from an ebay seller in Japan for about £16, a little expensive but worth it - I'm sure in Singapore where it originates from it's probably half that price or less. That's the only downside of it not being out over here - fingers crossed it does.
I decided i wanted to do some tests with a really old set of hair extensions (not Foxy Locks!) that were all tangled up and dry - they are about 3 years old and i don't wear them anymore. I also did a test on my own hair but because my hair isn't in bad condition i wanted to see how it would work on hair that was very damaged, so i also used a set of extensions that had be dyed repeatedly over a week - maybe three times or so with bleach, so you can imagine they were looking a bit worse for wear.
Up-first i will tell you my results, and how i felt the treatment benefited my hair.
My hair gets very tangled after washing it, i HAVE to brush/comb it when it's wet otherwise it would be a dreadlock mess - i know people always say it's bad to brush your hair when it's wet but my hair seems fine to me and i've been doing it since i was little :)
I can't read the directions as they are not in English but here's what i did:
After shampoo and conditioner i added a table spoon amount from root to tip, left it for 5 mins then i combed my hair through. Straight away the comb went through my hair so smoothly, finding it no problem getting out the tugs and knots. When i washed it out i could feel how soft my hair was - it felt amazing! After putting it on my roots i was a bit cautious that it would make them look very greasy (i never normally put conditioner on my roots), after blow drying my roots weren't greasy at all and my hair felt lovely and soft. The smell was gorgeous too, very similar to Guava fruit.
Up next i am going to show you the results when i used it on a tangled hair extensions weft. I bought these extensions three years ago:
To be fair the before picture isn't brushed at all so it looks really bad but they were in awful condition. You can see how much smoother they look after - they literally look repaired!
Very soft and silky! The ends look much neater. After years of curling and lots of hairspray, this treatment works wonders. If your hair is damaged you have to get this!
My next test was on some 'over-dyed' extensions, before the treatment they were very dry - i don't think the hairdresser had even bothered to wash off all the dye properly. You could never wear them in the state they were in, this is why high quality dye should always been used on extensions and they should never be re-dyed more than once if possible.
Above is the after result. As you can see the hair doesn't look damaged or dry at all and this hair was literally bleached and dyed over and over - pretty amazing results?! Very shiny and manageable.
On both these treatments i left the product on for 15 mins and combed the hair through after applying. They were then blow dried and straightened.
You can see the results are unbelievable, this is definitely one of the best treatments i have tried so far!
Rich Premier Formulated with honey & milk protein to protect and strengthen. Plus Shea Butter to repair and moisturize.
I am going to try out all of the other products and will keep you up to date with what i think. I can't wait to try the 'Nuance Airy'.
