We’ve got services to fight the frizz, combat dry and brittle tresses or hair loss and even scalp facials.
Rich, shiny and healthy locks – we all strive to have ‘em. But due to factors like harsh pollutants, product build-up and Singapore’s crazy humidity, we’re left with a less than desired look. Don’t be disheartened just yet though – we’ve found some worthy hair treatments that’ll cast all your concerns away. New hair, who dis?
Salon Infinity’s Aveda Pramasana Scalp + Hair Jet Therapy: A detoxifying scalp facial
TL;DR: A healthy scalp = healthy tresses. We all treat our skin well with multiple routines so why aren’t we giving the same attention to the scalp? All that effort on beautifully styled hair will go to waste if you’re not paying attention to the “root” of the problem. The Aveda Pramasana Scalp + Hair Jet Therapy at Salon Infinity offers a scalp facial that cleanses (to prevent the build-up of pollution and chemical treatments), detoxifies (for a pH balanced scalp to increase cell turnover for optimal hair growth and strengthen roots) and pampers (‘cos we all need a little pick-me-up). Great for all hair types and concerns too!
The treatment begins with a soothing Pramasana botanical wash to remove excess sebum, clogged follicles, dead skin and build-up from hair products, sweat and pollution. High-pressure water jets with ionised water (adjusted to your preference) are used to really get the stubborn gunk out of your scalp and hair strands. You’ll then be treated to a nourishing scalp mask and shoulder massage with soothing Aveda botanical oils. Finally, a protective scalp concentrate is used to balance sebum and protect it against pollution.
Perk! Honeycombers’ readers can enjoy your first trial session of the Aveda Pramasana Scalp + Hair Jet Therapy at $118 (90-min, U.P. $243.96). Simply quote ‘Honeycombers – Pramasana Scalp/Hair Jet Therapy’ when you’re making an appointment. Terms & Conditions apply.

Salon Vim’s Renewal Light Therapy: For sensitive scalp and dandruff
Itchy, sensitive scalp and flaky dandruff causing you discomfort and first-hand embarrassment? The salon may be known for offering every type of colour service under the sun but it also has acclaimed scalp and hair treatments to help you maintain a healthy scalp. Instead of switching to non-black outfits and putting your hair into a bun, try Salon Vim’s Renewal Light Therapy. Count on the power-packed Sonic Cleansing Technology (known to be six times better than using hands) to unclog pores and remove bacteria, dead skin cells and impurities from the scalp. Laser light technology is then used to stimulate the hair follicles, boost nutrient supply and strengthen your scalp’s metabolism against other pollutants, paving the way for strong and healthy tresses.

Follicle’s Kerabond Volumizing Rebond: For damaged and brittle hair
Ever looked into the mirror at the end of the day only to find sad and dry hair staring back at you? We’ve all been there. We can’t stop Singapore’s cranky humidity from giving us a frizzy crown but we can do something to tame it. Follicle’s organic Kerabond Volumizing Rebond treatment uses sulfate and paraben-free ingredients like aloe vera, jojoba oil and green tea that cleanse, moisturise and promote hair growth up to three months. Unlike most keratin treatments that give you a shiny but flat mane, you’ll leave this salon with a volumising rebond service that’s commercial worthy.

PHS Hair Science’s Miracle Stem Cell Solution: Combats hair loss and greying
Alarmed by the amount of hair clogging up your drain? Shedding between 50 to 200 strands of hair per day is completely normal but if you’re worried about obvious bald spots, thinning or even greying hair, PHS Hair Science’s signature Miracle Stem Cell Solution might help. The non-invasive treatment consists of growth factors and stem cell technology that awakens dormant and inactive follicle cells to improve hair regrowth and melanin production. Plus, you don’t have to be stuck here for hours. The treatment lasts a mere 45 minutes – you could even get it done during your lunch break!

Empire Charme’s Ginseng Scalp Therapy: For oily scalp
Empire Charme is highly raved for its variety of scalp and hair treatments but the one that caught our interest is the popular Ginseng Scalp Therapy. The formula is infused with Panax ginseng root and walnut shell powder to control oil production and increase hair growth. Say goodbye to a gross, oily scalp and all that sebum build-up. Tip: Aroma uplifting therapy is a great add-on that’ll boost the absorption of any treatment.

Leekaja’s Cureplex Hair Repair: For coloured or chemically treated hair
We’re all for changing our looks every now and then, be it a new hairdo, colour or red-carpet-ready perm. But nobody wants to end up with dry and straw-like hair. Repeated chemical and colour treatments may affect the health of your locks but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice a fresh look. Leekaja’s Cureplex Hair Repair protects your hair from harsh chemicals that go into these treatments. We’ll leave the technicalities to the pros but basically, a “bond creator” is used to strengthen and improve the elasticity as well as protect the internal structure of your hair. It then ends with a “sustainer” that smoothens and hydrates the cuticle layer and preserves the results of the treatment. So you don’t have to worry about a thing the next time you’re dying your tresses.
