Your hair and scalp are going to love these treatments packed with customised European herbal hair remedies.
We’ve stressed the importance of scalp care before but if you need a refresher, here’s why. The scalp is also skin so we should be showing it as much love as our face. In fact, the thicker hair follicles on our scalp means it’s a cesspit for sweat, dry skin cells, pollution and oil. A simple shampoo and conditioner combo just won’t cut it.
We spend hours and dollars eradicating all these nasties off our face with serums, masks and facials, so why don’t we do the same for our scalp? Yes, the effects of poor scalp care may not be as obvious right now. But if you’ve been experiencing an itchy scalp, limp hair or an alarming number of strands washing down the drain, it’s time you relook your scalp care routine. Especially with unavoidable issues such as postpartum hair loss, post-menopause hair loss, hormonal changes and skin diseases that are screaming for extra TLC.
FYI: Scalp treatments are just as important as your monthly facial
TK TrichoKare comes to the rescue with elite treatments that your scalp will love. In fact, this brand is the first and leading trichological centre (we’ll get to this in a second) that offers customised European herbal hair remedies backed by hair and scalp experts for your scalp conditions. Part of its moniker is derived from trichology – trichology is the scientific study relating to scalp and hair health, as well as nitty-gritty stuff like the science of its structure, function and diseases. Jargon aside, just know that these guys are the big guns in scalp knowledge and care.
First things first: Every single outlet has amped up its safe distancing measures so you can have a stress-free treatment.
All staff go through two temperature screenings a day and are placed on medical leave if they display flu-like symptoms or have a fever. Masks and protective gears are also worn at all times. Contact areas and equipment are regularly disinfected and sterilised. Mandatory SafeEntry check-in, temperature taking and travel declaration exercises have been put in place for all customers. One-metre spacing is also observed at all times, including alternative seating for treatments and hair washing.
Get to the root of the problem with a customised treatment
So how does it work? For starters, each treatment begins with a thorough trichological consultation including a quick questionnaire to understand your lifestyle and scalp care habits. A lens that magnifies your follicles up to 200 times is used to analyse your hair and scalp condition. Here’s where you get a clearer vision of all the nasty buildup and pinpoint the cause of your problems. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, as the friendly hair and scalp specialists will spill all the hair care secrets you’re dying to know.
On our visit, we were recommended a customised treatment which included the TriOxy procedure, and then it was down to business. In a plush room, the experience begins with a premium European herbal scalp masque to exfoliate the scalp and loosen stubborn impurities and excess sebum. Next, the revitalising hair bath restores sebum balance and leaves your scalp feeling squeaky clean, followed by a hot pad relaxation that takes the edge of any stress that’ll lead to hair loss.
The TriOxy treatment literally breathes life into your hair
And now for the main event: The TriOxy treatment. Consisting of OxyPeel, OxyJet and OxyNutrient, this treatment basically provides ample oxygen for your scalp to stimulate growth and replenish moisture, nutrients and all the good stuff for thick tresses and a happy scalp.
The OxyPeel further exfoliates by buffing away dead skin, unclogging congested pores and eradicating product buildup from your scalp. The OxyJet device is used to penetrate cool pulses of oxygen onto your scalp – you know, just like an oxygen facial but for the scalp. This also improves blood circulation and increases cell metabolism, paving way for new hair follicles to grow.
Next, the OxyNutrient (which gives a refreshing, minty-fresh sensation) supplies all the nutrients and further boosts hydration for a rejuvenated scalp. Finally, all the nourishing herbal hair remedy is soaked in with Photodynamic Therapy (pictured above), a laser light technology with infra-red light to support hair regeneration and speed up the healing process. Overall, the treatment is a much-needed detox for the scalp, as it stimulates hair growth, regulates oil production, clears dry flakes and paves way for silky, smooth tresses.
It’s safe to say we left with a clean, revitalised scalp – you get pictorial evidence from your post-treatment analysis – that was ready to rule the world.
