For the longest time, I have always been troubling with my premature greying hair. It started with a few strands when I was barely 20 years old. And now at 40s, there are almost 60% of grey hair covering all over my head. Thanks to my mom for the bad genes.
And Lately, I am also troubling by hair loss. Hair become fragile and fall off easily. There are unsightly tiny bald spots on the crown and in front of the hairline. My hair also appear thinner too.
I feel so helpless and actually contemplate consulting a hair specialist and getting a scalp treatment done at one of the hair care centres here. I hold back the idea eventually as I was very skeptical of the result and having doubt if the treatment really works.
Fortunately 2 weeks ago, I was given an opportunity to experience a complimentary scalp treatment at TK TrichoKare @ Wheelock Place outlet. Thanks to TheSampleStore for extending this invitation to me.
As it was my first hair and scalp treatment and prior to it, I was pretty excited and actually looking forward to it. TK TrichoKare is considered one of the reputed holistic hair and scalp centres in Singapore with Diana Ser as their spokeswoman.
Unlike Beijing 101 and Yunnan that use Chinese herbal remedies, TK TrichoKare uses premium European botanicals to treat hair condition.

Prior to the treatment, I was given a short tour of the facilities and the centre. The relaxing spa-quality environment provides an ultimate rejuvenating experience.
This private room is especially catered for Hair Weaving Treatment. This special hair treatment helps add up of hair to the scalp by weaving or braiding of hair.
Here’s their cozy hair washing area.
These octopus-looking machines are mounted above each cubicle.
The treatment session began with a scalp check. The hair consultant first analyzed my scalp (oily or dry) by gently rubbing it with her fingers. I was shocked to be told that my scalp is actually dry and not oily as I always thought. All these while, I have been using shampoos that are specially formulated for oily scalp, not knowing that I actually have dry scalp. Thankfully it wasn’t too late to find out and make the switch.
After which, she then placed a scalp applicator on 4 different areas of the scalp (crown, the back, right and left side of the head) for a precise scalp diagnosis.
Wow! My scalp on the left side of my head (just above left ear) was infected with red spots. Inflamed scalp is mainly due to fungal infections and can be treated easily. I was also shocked to see layer of dead skin on the scalp (white patchy skin) too. Eeee!! These dead scalp skin can to be removed with treatment.
