Essential Nuance Airy Intensive Hair Mask

Thanks to lovely Cynthia & Nicole, I got my hands on Essential products! My hair has been dreaming about that awesome stuff!

I got the shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and serum but I tried the hair mask first as I still have unfinished old products.

Product says :
3x more High Purity Honey & Shea Butter
Intensive care for severely damaged hair, especially the last 15cm
Gives limp and flat hair a light & bouncy feel
  • Cares even for the last 15cm, which is most prone to dryness, tangles and split ends caused by chemical treatments and styling.
  • 3x more High Purity Honey to protect and strengthen.
  • 3x more Shea Butter to repair and moisturize.
  • Wild Rose Essence keeps hair soft and moisturized.
  • Hair becomes easy to manage and style.
Cute pink jar with a wavy top! And it's shimmery too.. It's easy to open but like all products in tubs, it gets under my nails.

I was quite surprised at how solid this hair mask is. It reminds me of slightly melted butter. Compared to my previous hair masks, I use a smaller amount of this as it's so buttery smooth and concentrated (I usually use less than the amount shown). Smells really good too ^_^

It's very easy to spread and didn't feel very oily/greasy like my previous hair masks.

I guess it's  recommended to wrap your hair in a shower cap but I just sorta bun/simple gather then clip. I leave it on for 5-10 minutes while I do other stuff in the shower (totally reminded myself about 'poop in shower guy' ewww..).

OMG!~~ I felt the difference immediately after the first usage. Hair was so much softer~~~ And it was super shiny. It will take a while to repair my hair but I'm convinced it will help! It's already less fluffy now. I think I used too much though (too used to my previous hair masks) so it sorta weighed down my hair.

Pics to prove it! This is how my hair used to look like. Hair was dry, stiff and harsh feeling. It was bordering on 'horse mane'. *I used loads of hair serum in the photos below*

After a few weeks of using my old shampoo & conditioner + new Essential hair mask, my hair now looks like this! Soooooo much softer now! Hair is more manageable, less dry and shiny.

This is my hair without any serum. It still looks better than my old hair with serum =_="

Even on a fluffy hair day, my hair's still somehow manageable.

Essential! Y U NO come to Malaysia?!?! Like seriously.. I don't want to have to keep bugging Singaporean friends to help me.

My conclusion : LOVE! This is seriously the best hair mask I've tried so far. If you want to pamper your hair or if you have really damaged hair, you've gotta try this!


  1. I love the mask! This Nuance Airy stuff is aweesome! :) It's REALLY expensive in the US though!

  2. I really want to try this line! your hair looks so healthy ^_^

  3. wow, those stuff really works huh? I saw the, on a lot monthly fav posts n videos on Youtube! :D I don't my hair so I don't hair repairing product that much. But am tempted to try it out since the tube is so cute!

  4. ^_^ Oh how I wish I had gotten it earlier! It's about the same price as other similar hair masks here so it's a much better choice

  5. You should! Many good reviews on it, especially the masks. Oh my hair is naturally puffy and unmanageable. After a double perm within the same week and multiple rebonding& colouring,it's half dead.

  6. YES! Compared with other drugstore hair masks here, this is muuuch better.

  7. Ah, Kao Essential, my HG. Love, LOVE these! I used to get mine online or ask my bf to help me get some when ever he went back to Singapore. I, too, wished they sold it here in Malaysia

  8. I only found 2 local sellers who happened to be traveling to SG but they were charging twice the price which is rather obscene

  9. And where's my Chatime?? =P  The amount I saw on your pic is sooo much...I think I only used half of yours.  I LOVE this products to max!! I dunno why I find the yellow one works better in repairing. I love both series.

  10. And when you coming back again? Hahaha.. or I poslaju over. Yeah I took too much in that pic.

  11. i'd love to try this as well, hope my hair doesnt get too dry after this..

    Latest: Customizable Irish Sandwich

  12. But it should restore moisture to your hair. It shouldn't make your hair dry

  13. These sound great, we don't get them in Ireland either :(

  14. Yeah, I think theyre only available in 4 countries including Australia & Singapore

  15. It loooookk niceee, btw Isabel, do you know how much is Palty hair dye in Malaysia?? :D

  16. That products from Essential looks really cool. Nice post!

  17. It's not sold in shops but we have Liese here at RM 30+. Palty can be found online, I guess. Ill tell you if I come across any? :)

  18. is the shampoo good too?

  19. I have not tried it cos I still have my old shampoo. Will definitely blog about it after trying

  20. I definitely need this after I permed my hair >.<

  21. Wow, this looks really enriching!
    Your hair looks so smooth and silky after using it ^_^
    On an unrelated note I really love your pink glasses frames!

  22. Thanks! Yup.. Its much smoother now. I hope they never discontinue this!

  23. Looks great!!

  24. ooh I want to get this product too now! I always have to rely on serum too much >_< I'll have a hunt for it on ebay or something. Your hair does look quite soft and shiny afterwards! :D

  25. Its quite highly recommended around here :) I think you can get this from Sasa

  26. Looks good, my hair's grown out for almost a year now and I need to get in the habit of hair masks once a week or so...running low on my pantene and I hate that the new packaging gives you less!
