I’ve always been a stickler when it comes to my hair. I can only use certain hair products because my scalp tends to get oily and itchy when a treatment or product is unsuitable. I also rarely ever dye my hair; I can literally count the number of times I’ve done so throughout my life so far. I would say I have relatively good hair as a result except as the years go by, the more medications I take and the more problems I have to face, the more white hairs start to show. I’ve tried to avoid the option of dying my hair but what can I do to cover white hairs without the use of harmful chemicals? Introducing Bee Choo Origins Herbal Hair Treatment.
Usually when I hear of herbal hair salons, the first thing that comes to mind is dated interior, the lack of privacy as people look in while they walk pass the salon and old Mandarin songs especially when I heard it’s located in a neighbourhood hub! Imagine my surprise when I realised Bee Choo Origin in Jurong East is nothing like that! Located at the back of Western Union, walk up a flight of stairs and you’ll find a cosy spot like a secret hideaway with a pretty garden-like interior away from prying passer-bys. I was served a nice warm cup of herbal tea together with lots of magazines to browse through and free WiFi. They even topped-up the tea… you should know by now how much I love my tea.
Herbal Hair Treatment
The paste used for this treatment is made of freshly made natural herbs specially formulated in solving several scalp issues such as hair loss, itchy scalp, oily scalp, dandruff, white/grey hair and post-pregnancy hair loss. The all natural herbal paste helps to unclog pores by removing residues on the scalp and provides nutrients to tackle the above issues while rebalancing the PH level so that the hair can grow healthily. Here are five of the most premium ingredients in the herbal paste.
Ginseng – Anti-Aging, helps in new hair cell regeneration.
Chuan Xiong – Strengthen hair follicles, resistant to breakage.
Ling Zhi – Reduces itchiness and risk of infections.
Dang Gui – Regulates scalp immunity.
He Shou Wu – Slows down grey hair reproduction, helps restore hair pigmentation.
- Application of ginger hair tonic on the scalp. This will prepare your scalp for the following processes and for better absorption of nutrients from herbal paste.
- Application of 100% pure virgin olive oil onto hair ends. This helps to prevent and ease of split ends while improving hair condition for a smoother and shinier tresses.
- Application of specially formulated herbal treatment cream. Applied onto the entire scalp and hair for maximum absorption of the herbal goodness.
- Steaming takes about 45mins. This helps to open up your scalp pores to remove impurities and aid absorption of herbal hair ingredients into scalp.
- Wash & Blow. The herbal cream will be washed off and hair partially blown dry to maximize the absorption of nutrients for next few hours after treatment.
The Herbal Hair Treatment costs from SGD $34 to SGD $70 depending on your hair length for men and women. You can choose to visit every month, every 3 months or whenever you feel your white hairs are showing. There are a range of products that you can purchase from the salon too – Shampoos, Conditioners, Hair Tonic, Hair Masks and Essence Vitamin ranging from SGD $20 to SGD $62.I thoroughly enjoyed the entire treatment process especially when the paste was applied and left of my scalp; the cooling effect covered every inch of my head and completely made me feel so relaxed. Healthy scalp, healthy hair at a very affordable price compared to those widely advertised scalp treatment salons that will charge you thousands of dollars! No hard sell either – just go in, get a queue number, get your treatment and continue with your day! You can even wash your hair later at home but take note not to use a white towel for the first wash as it may get stained. The treatment process and effect reminded me of henna application which I’ve written about some time back and advocate for healthy hair.
I’m really happy I found out about this herbal hair treatment by Bee Choo Origins and I’m already making plans for my next visit.
