In less than 3 years time I’ll be bidding my twenties goodbye and saying hello to the BIG 3 🙈 When it comes to anti-ageing, I’ve always believed in Prevention is Better Than Cure. SO THAT MEANS… anti-ageing begins even before we start to show signs of ageing.
We all know that beautiful hair starts from the roots and the scalp. Yet, how much attention do we give to our scalp and hair when it comes to anti-ageing? As a model/actress constantly on set doing shoots, my hair is always subjected to tons of hair products and stronghold hairspray/ hairwax/ mousse… etc (you name it I’ve probably had it loaded on my tresses before).
In fact, some of you who had been following me since a few years back might recall that I used to have waist-long locks.
As my hair quality decreased with the amount of damage and styling that kept going on in these shoots and from doing pageants, I just kept trimming and trimming my hair LOL. Post-Miss Universe Singapore 2016, I decided my hair was lifeless and tired and so decided to take the plunge and snipped my way to the current bob look.
Recently, I started to notice that my hair is getting flat and fine. Some experts say that your hair is really what betrays your age!! So, how do we stay young forever? Well, follicularly speaking of course….
I first discovered TK TrichoKare when famous Celebrities like Xiaxue, Mediacorp’s Jaynesh and Anand visited them for their hair problems. TrichoKare clearly showed results in promoting healthy hair growth and preventing hair fall/loss.
They even have many prestigious awards under their belt.
So without further ado, I made an appointment at the TrichoKare Velocity Novena branch.
I was introduced to my dearest Trichologist, Pooja!
Was brought into the cosy consultation room where I could discover my current hair age.
But first, lemme take a selfie =P
Pooja assisted me with their Advanced Tricho Hair Test to evaluate my scalp and hair conditions and to determine my hair age. TADA!!! Here’s me and my scorecard!
Pooja revealed that my hair age is currently at 31!!!!! 😭😭😭 A good 4 years older than I really am! Thank goodness I delayed no further in seeking treatment.
Pooja pointed out that I have some hair follicles that are clogged up due to build-up from hair products as well as dead skin cells =/ Lack of purification, detox and destress for the hair and scalp could lead to inflammation and hair loss issues in future!
You can see the red circled areas where there are VISIBLE CLOGS. Also, Pooja pointed out that there was some redness in my scalp, meaning its quite sensitive and and is more on the oily side 😳 GULPS!
Pooja assured me that their treatment will be able to help my hair/scalp woes and recommended I go for treatment every 2-3 weeks.
Pooja recommended TrichoKare’s newest treatment programme, Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment, an anti-ageing hair treatment that has been specially developed to help both men and women counteract age-related changes in the density and diameter of their hair.
The treatment benefits:
AND SOOOO Let’s GOO!!!
Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment
Le Treatment Room!
Ahhhhh so comfy…..
The Advanced Age Defying Hair treatment uses only European herbal hair remedies (all treatments customised based on hair and scalp conditions).
Loving this Hair Mask that’s customised just for me. There was a lovely cool sensation due to the peppermint ingredients in it. It helps to deeply cleanse the hair by removing impurities and excess sebum while regulating the scalp sebum. The application takes up to 20 minutes to detox my scalp and absorb the nutrients.
The treatment also uses Oxyjet Technology. Using pulsed oxygen pressure, an infusion of pure oxygen and nutrients are “shot” into the deep layers of the scalp. The active ingredients are able to penetrate deeply into the scalp without needles, which means it is all gentle, effective and safe! This process also helps to increase blood circulation and encourage the production of collagen – resulting in hair growth and preventing hair loss
Some of their Key Ingredients used:
- Reactivate 80% of dormant hair follicles
- Boost the diameter and thickness of each hair
Gingko Biloba extract
- Counteract signs of scalp ageing
- Boost collagen to increase new hair growth
Felt so blissful here. I just love how TrichoKare takes such good care of their customers. Do you see the green fuzzy thing at my neck? Its actually a heated bean bag pillow to keep our necks warm while the cool oxyjet treatment is carried out.
Hair Tonic!! It was applied onto my scalp to strengthen the cohesion of keratin fibres to improve the hair density. I could absolutely feel all the nourishment going into my scalp and roots.
Everyone loves a scalp massage ❤️ It helps to ensure that all the nutrients and proteins are absorbed into my scalp!
Was really excited about this! The Infrared Therapy Light helps to kill bacteria. This intensive regeneration encourages activity on the cellular level to promote hair growth and restore your hair to its former glory while soothing your scalp.
And now… for the VERDICT post-treatment
The picture above speaks for itself. Comparing my hair scan images BEFORE and AFTER, there’s just so much difference. Not only do I feel like my scalp is less greasy, but we can even SEE how my hair follicles look so clean and and healthy now. Gone are the clogs and flakiness of the hair! I’m thoroughly impressed at such dramatic improvement made in ONE session.
Even in Singapore’s hot and humid weather, I still managed to go about my daily activities without losing the clean and fresh feeling on my scalp at the end of the day. When I went for my next shoot, I received comments from the stylists that the crown of my hair could hold its volume at the better (which means less oil on the scalp) and so there was even less need for the use of hairspray and volumising products!!
THANK YOU TrichoKare for the gift of healthy, young and fresh hair follicles that defies the time.
Like I said at the start, prevention is always better than cure. Start early!!!
