Treat­ment for dry scalp

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BMS INDULGE -

Each strand of healthy hair grows for ap­prox­i­mately two to five years depend­ing on gen­der and ge­netic pre­dis­po­si­tion. It un­der­goes a tran­si­tion pe­riod for ap­prox­i­mately three months be­fore shed­ding. This cy­cle re­peats with new hair formed within the hair fol­li­cle.

how­ever, it can be dis­rupted due to an over-greasy scalp or a dry scalp, caus­ing un­con­trolled hair fall.

Un­con­trolled hair fall due to dry scalp oc­curs when there are more hair fall­ing than hair grow­ing, which could range from 30 to 100 strands of hair shed­ding daily, depend­ing on hair fall stage and type.

Dry scalp is de­fined by the in­suf­fi­cient pro­duc­tion of se­bum, a type of oil pro­duced by the se­ba­ceous glands to seal hair cu­ti­cles, hold in mois­ture, pro­tect hair and scalp from harm­ful UV rays, bac­te­rial and yeast in­fec­tions.

The lack of ac­tiv­ity of these glands can cause prob­lems such as flaky scalp ac­com­pa­nied by dan­druff, frizzy hair, con­gested fol­li­cles and will even­tu­ally lead to un­con­trolled hair fall.

When the scalp lacks mois­ture, it fails to seal in mois­ture in the scalp to main­tain growth of healthy, lus­trous hair. It also causes the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of dead skin cells on the scalp, which may clus­ter and clog hair fol­li­cles, pre­vent­ing them from “breath­ing” and caus­ing dry flakes. Dry scalp would also lead to dry, frizzy hair with split ends.

ac­cord­ing to the sur­vey per­formed by 101 hair care, many clients did not re­alise how dry their scalp was and how this con­di­tion af­fected their hair qual­ity.

For dry scalp and hair fall prob­lems, 101 hair care uses the rev­o­lu­tion­ary and cus­tomised ad­vanced Fol­li­cle Tech­nol­ogy (aFT) treat­ment to tar­get the fol­li­cles and roots to re­veal healthy hair. The first and most cru- cial step in aFT is Deep cleans­ing as it deep cleanses hair fol­li­cles from dead skin cells and ex­ces­sive se­bum while reg­u­lat­ing it and re­duc­ing scalp sen­si­tiv­ity.

The next step is Preven­tion, which stops hair roots from en­ter­ing the “rest­ing stage” pre­ma­turely. It also bal­ances se­bum se­cre­tion and en­sures ef­fec­tive ab­sorp­tion of herbal essences to sup­ply nu­tri­ents to the hair root.

Growth Stim­u­la­tion comes af­ter Preven­tion to en­hance mi­cro­cir­cu­la­tion to scalp and en­sure nutrient and oxy­gen de­liv­ery to fol­li­cles to en­hance hair growth and hair tex­ture. Less hair fall is no­ticed with ev­ery hair wash and new baby hairs can be seen and as a re­sult, hair in­creases in den­sity.

The fi­nal stage to aFT treat­ment is Strength­en­ing, which is re­quired as it strength­ens the hair roots of new and ex­ist­ing hair. This re­sults in health­ier, thicker and stronger hair.

aFT treat­ment is also paired with acupunc­tural Point Mas­sage tech­nique to en­hance the treat­ment ef­fi­cacy as well as re­duc­ing clogged fol­li­cles, im­proves blood circulation to scalp and en­hance the ab­sorp­tion of herbal essences.
