[Review] Svenson Hair Oxy DH Therapy


Over the recent years, I’ve noticed my hair has been thinning out and my hairline is receding. These problems really stressed me up. I have recently learned that in order to reduce hair loss or thinning, I really need to take good care of my scalp. Hair problems such as hair thinning or hair loss tends to surface if our scalp is congested, or overly oily. Detoxifying the scalp can therefore restore its health for hair that looks fuller and more lustrous.

And also as we age, our hair follicles tend to become thinner due to poor blood circulation and lack of nutrients penetration, thus weakening the structure of hair. Whilst factors such as genetics, diseases, illnesses, medications, an unhealthy diet and stressful lifestyle can cause hair loss, the lack of oxygen to the hair is one key element that can cause hair loss or thinning of the hair that is often overlooked.

A couple weeks back, I was pleased to experience a newly launched Oxy DH Therapy by Svenson Hair, the leading hair and scalp care professionals in Asia. This treatment uses a natural source – OXYGEN, to take care of a variety of hair conditions, including alopecia, diffused hair loss and post-natal hair loss. It can help detoxifying the scalp to maintain healthy hair scalp.

Taking care of my scalp is utterly important now. I was told our scalp may not be thoroughly cleansed even after we have shampooed our hair.

The white spots may indicate my scalp or follicle is inflamed or clogged.

I have very light pink scalp (feel itchy on some spots from time to time), and this is an indication of irritation or inflammation that can lead to hair thinning. Hence this complimentary treatment came at the right time. Healthy hair scalp is whitish in color.

The customers here will enjoy the privacy as each room has its own basin.

The therapist began the treatment by first applying a mask lotion on my scalp, section by section. It gives a cooling sensation that lasts about two minutes. This PH Mask helps to detox and soften the dead skin cells. The therapist then shampooed my hair twice to make sure the mask is completely removed from the scalp.

Followed next was a gentle massage with high frequency light on my scalp and then a steaming that lasted about 10 minutes.

After which an anti-bacterial procedure to disinfect my scalp. It gives a mild tingling current sensation that feels super relaxing. :D

Review – TK TrichoKare Scalp Treatment


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. European botanical herbal remedies such as Jojoba, Rosemary, Burdock, Horsetail, Sage, Leopard’s Bane, Aloe Vera and Lavender are used to cater to all hair conditions.

TrichoKare specialises in treating hair and scalp problems including hair loss, greasy scalp, dandruff and many more, with the use of European herbal hair remedies. They offer a range of hair care programmes that are specially tailored for individual needs.

TrichoKare’s treatments are all validated by trichologist and TrichoKare’s products are formulated by herbalist.

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.

Last Friday, I’ve attended the BAWANG Shampoo Bloggers Discussion Session to discuss the recent saga on the counterfeit and ingredient issues and at the same time to preview their newly launched shampoo Royal Wind è¿½å³° and the spokesman is Faye Wong!

BAWANG, claimed to be the #1 natural herbal shampoo, has hit Singapore a few years ago and has since been very popular with heavy advertisements and their first spokesman was Jacky Chan.

But in fact, it is targeted for all age groups including young women with permed/bonding/colored hair.
