Sham­poo Well

For hair to grow healthily, your scalp needs to be clean and well­nour­ished. When you wash your hair, sham­poo ev­ery part of your scalp and press it firmly with your fin­ger­tips for a quick mas­sage. This helps to get rid of de­bris, bac­te­ria and chem­i­cal build-up, and boosts blood cir­cu­la­tion for health­ier tresses.

Do a Monthly Treat­ment

It’s worth treat­ing your crown­ing glory to monthly pam­per­ing like the Hair Loss Treat­ment ($980 for 10 ses­sions of 120 mins each) at Ori­gin Luxe, a scalp-care spa. This treat­ment isn’t just for those who are los­ing hair – it also helps main­tain nor­mal scalp and hair health.

Great for all hair types, it com­bines the use of high-tech ma­chines with tra­di­tional Chi­nese and Ayurvedic herbs and mas­sages to leave your scalp feel­ing fresh and your hair, soft and man­age­able.

Your scalp will first be an­a­lysed, then given a quick mas­sage us­ing a comb be­fore a high-fre­quency ma­chine trans­mits mi­cro-elec­tric cur­rents to kill bac­te­ria, and boost blood and oxy­gen cir­cu­la­tion. Af­ter that, a her­bal ginger wine is spritzed over your scalp to en­er­gise and prep it.

Next, a her­bal blend of in­gre­di­ents like dang­gui, gin­seng, In­dian goose­berry and bhringraj is ap­plied. This ex­clu­sive her­bal con­coc­tion, which con­tains no chem­i­cal preser­va­tives, helps pro­mote healthy hair growth, re­duce itch­i­ness and nour­ish the fol­li­cles. It also treats clogged fol­li­cles, oili­ness and dan­druff.

A mi­cro-mist steam ses­sion fol­lows to speed up cir­cu­la­tion and help the in­gre­di­ents pen­e­trate your scalp. Then a scalp tonic is ap­plied and an in­vig­o­rat­ing acu­pres­sure mas­sage fol­lows.

The re­lax­ing ses­sion ends with In­frared Heat Ther­apy to get rid of lin­ger­ing bac­te­ria and boost the pen­e­tra­tion of the tonic.

Fill Up on Vi­ta­mins and Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids and vi­ta­mins A and C strengthen hair fol­li­cles. To pro­tect your scalp and help it to pro­duce the oils it needs to stay healthy, eat foods with red-or­ange pig­ments, such as sweet pota­toes, car­rots and pa­payas. Th­ese con­tain beta carotene, which the body con­verts into vi­ta­min A. Also eat vi­ta­min C-rich fruits like blue­ber­ries to boost cir­cu­la­tion in the scalp. And get your fill of omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, sar­dines, av­o­cado and wal­nuts.

Go Preser­va­tive-free

If your head of­ten feels itchy, try switch­ing to hair­care prod­ucts that are free of parabens and sodium lau­reth sul­phate (SLS). “Parabens and SLS could ir­ri­tate the scalp and strip off its nat­u­ral oils, leav­ing it in­flamed and dry, re­sult­ing in hair loss,” ex­plains Riff Lim, gen­eral man­ager of Ori­gin Luxe.
