Reflects your Overall Health and Well-Being

How does your healthy hair reflect your overall health? The bounce and vibrance in your hair means that your body is producing sufficient vitamins and nutrients. On the contrary, if your hair fall has been increasing and you’re faced with dry, frizzy hair, then it may be sign that you need a significant change in your diet or haircare regime. A diet low in zinc, iron, and/or protein could also play a role in thinning hair. Other causes for brittle hair may include a lack of biotin or even excessive heat exposure (be it being too much in the sun or using heat tools).

Healthy hair is critical to both your physical and mental well-being and should be taken seriously. With the proper maintenance and care, it is possible to have healthy, vibrant hair at all times. Additionally, healthy tresses bolsters our self-confidence. It can also tell us a great deal about what’s happening inside of our bodies, thus teaching us some valuable lessons about how we can take better take care of ourselves.

TK TrichoKare is the first leading Trichological Centre with customised European Herbal Hair Remedies validated by certified Trichologists. At TrichoKare, Trichology (the scientific study relating to scalp and hair health) is combined with Technology (the science of the structure, function, diseases and care of the human hair and scalp). Treatments are customised using premium European herbs to cater to all kinds of hair and scalp conditions.

Being a pretty low-maintenance self, and after having two kids, needless to say, hair thinning seems to be inevitable and the re-growth rate after post-partum, was non-existent. I have always had a sensitive scalp and ever so often, my scalp gets itchy. I always just glossed over it, think that perhaps this is just one of those things and never bothered to seek treatment. When I was invited to for a treatment session at TrichoKare, I was intrigued to see how they can assist with my hair and scalp condition.

When I arrived at the centre, I was ushered into a room where my hair & scalp was analysed using lenses that magnifies up to 200 times. It not only helps to analyse the scalp condition, but also works as a visual proof of the improved scalp condition after treatment is administered. It was quite an eye-opener and albeit worrying to see your scalp up-close and hair follicles spaced apart! After being assessed as having a sensitive scalp, I was also told that my scalp needed more hydration and TrichoKare proceeded to customise a treatment plan for me.

First, I was treated to their customised premium European Herbal Scalp Masque. The masque helps to detox my scalp and remove impurities and excess sebum. 15 minutes later when the masque’s magic was done, my scalp was left with a tingling cooling sensation. A Revitalising Hair Bath was up next to wash off the masque and restore the scalp’s sebum balance. My scalp felt squeaky clean and my hair was so light and rejuvenated after the relaxing wash and much-needed massage. Just when I thought all that was left was a blow-dry, I was wrong!

TrichoKare sets itself apart with its herbal and natural hair remedies, but it is certainly not behind in terms of advanced tech. After applying the OxyNutrient, a customised ampoule on my scalp, an OxyJet machine was used to accelerate the absorption of nutrients. This genius contraption helps to increase hair growth and thickness, reduce inflammation and damage as well as delay scalp ageing. By dispensing the ampoule through targeted pressure, the device not only helps to improve blood circulation, but boosts scalp cell metabolism as well. 

Then came the finale as a space-age headgear was wheeled towards me and fitted around my head. This Photodynamic Therapy is a laser light technology that supports hair regeneration and helps accelerate healing.

After the whole treatment, I was led back to the consultation room where my scalp was analysed once again. The hair & scalp specialist hooked up the scanner and showed me the results – no more clogged pores at the end of hair follicles and my scalp no longer itch! I was convinced then that I should be taking better care of my scalp and focus on washing my hair thoroughly each and every time – no more rush jobs just because I’ve to tend with the kids. Whatever your hair concerns may be, TrichoKare is able to tackle them from greasy, itchy scalps to dandruff, significant hair loss as well as greying hair.
