Product Review: Essential Sleeping Hair Mask

Look what came in the mail! I received my sponsored Essential Sleeping Hair Mask from SampleStore.com about a week ago but was too busy doing revision for my finals to do a review on it :/ So I tried to squeeze in time to complete this review!

For those of you who haven't heard of Samplestore.com, it is the leading online try-vertising platform in Singapore. You get to try out skin care & hair products etc. before buying the "full-sized" product. This idea actually intrigued me when I first received their flyer in the mail recently. I used to purchase many products which I ended up not using because they don't suit me or didn't live up to their claims. So for those of you who don't want to end up wasting money, try this out! All you have to do is register on their website, select 4 samples you want to receive and wait for your free* samples!

*Do note that they charge a fixed price of $5.99 for shipping and handling fee unless you pick all 4 samples from the "Sponsored Samples" Tab.

So here's the two products I received from SampleStore.com.

On the right is the Essential Sleeping Hair Mask and the left is the Essential Leave On Serum.

For those of you who are tired of wake up with frizzy and unmanageable hair every morning, look no further, here's a product that actually works to tame that lion mane of yours! So what actually causes your hair to become frizzy the next morning when you wake up? When sleeping, tossing and turning causes hair to rub against the pillow, creating friction. Such friction caused by the pillow is called Pillow Friction. Pillow Friction causes the hair cuticles to open up unevenly, resulting in rough, frizzy or prone to tangles hair. These hair damage caused by pillow friction are known as Pillow Damage. As a result of Pillow Damage, bed hair occurs (or "lion mane", as most people would call it).

To solve this problem, you usually have no choice but to wash your hair in the morning. Washing your
hair ‘resets’ the uneven alignment of hair cuticles and makes hair smooth and manageable again.
However, by having to wash hair in the morning, you would have to wake earlier and sacrifice your beauty sleep. Now here's an alternative solution to the bed hair caused by Pillow Damage: Essential Sleeping Hair
Mask. It protects each hair strand and minimizes Pillow Damage when you toss and turn about when sleeping.

So does the sleeping hair mask actually work?

 The top of my head is quite frizzy and it gets worse later on in the day ):

But because I did hair rebonding a year ago, it's actually still quite smooth and not that frizzy at the bottom. Though I have quite a lot of split ends, it can't be seen in the photo :/

Despite that, I still tried out the product and loved it! Love the smell of the hair mask! It's definitely not oily or sticky as the product claimed, not like some other leave-on conditioner I have tried before.

But for a fair review, I've gotten my friend to try out the product too! Her hair is more frizzy/dry and prone to tangles as compared to mine. So here's the comparison.

Night before sleeping

Left: Without Essential hair mask
Right: With Essential hair mask

Look at the immediate difference after applying the hair mask! But will it pass the tossing and turning test? Let's take a look.

Next morning 

Just look at the difference! Comparing the left and the right, the sleeping hair mask really does make your hair more manageable when you wake up in the morning! Your hair really does feel less dry and frizzy even after a night of tossing and turning in bed!

For those of you who have dry and frizzy hair, I would strongly recommend this product! And what better way to try this product than to head on down to http://on.fb.me/1hUqJoA to redeem your free sample now!
