Bad Hair (and scalp) Day

4 years ago / hair

Visiting the scalp experts TK TrichoKare!

In my line of work, I constantly have to meet people and as a result, regular dyeing and frequent styling are part and parcel of my everyday life.

While it looks good in pictures, I've started to notice that in recent months (maybe because I'm getting older now), I'm dropping more hair than before and I realise that my hair part is getting wider. More scarily, I also started experiencing dandruff (HUGE flakes were literally dropping off my scalp when I was in Phuket) and while I tried switching to anti-dandruff shampoo, I realised it was really drying my hair out and my scalp seems to be quite irritated too.

I consulted the experts at TK TrichoKare to see how they can improve my scalp condition. While is tough to get your name out in the hair business, TrichoKare has actually received a number of awards in the hair categories:


  • Her World Spa Awards 2016 – Best Treatment For Damaged Hair
  • ELLE Beauty Treat List 2016 – Best Anti-Hair Loss Treatment
  • Harper's BAZAAR Hair Awards 2016 - Best Sebum-Regulating Treatment for Oily Scalp
  • The Singapore Women’s Weekly Hair Awards 2016 – Best Anti-Ageing Hair Treatment

Additionally, even celebrities such as Sheila Sim and Xiaxue go to TrichoKare for their personalised treatment programmes to get their hair problems fixed.

All TrichoKare’s treatments are validated by certified Trichologists. You may have heard of TrichoKare but might not know what a trichologist does exactly... not to worry, I also didn't know as well and decided to do some research on my own haha.

Trichology is the science of the structure, function, diseases and care of the human hair and scalp. A trichologist is a hair and scalp specialist (“hair doctor”). They look at hair loss problems in a holistic way by evaluating base on personal history, lifestyle, genetic factors and environmental conditions.

The Trichologist uses their experience and expertise to help the patient understands what is happening with their hair. Based on this information, they are able to customise treatment, give nutritional advice and recommend lifestyle changes to improve the health and appearance of the hair and scalp. Trichologists treat wide range of common hair problems, such as hair loss, thinning hair, itchy scalp, greasy scalp, dandruff conditions etc.

Pooja Chhabra, a trichologist with TrichoKare, used the Tricho-Scan with lenses that can magnify up to 200 times for a detailed analysis for my hair. As you can see from the before image below, my scalp doesn’t look good. Many of the pores are clogged with grime which prevents the speed of new hair growth to match up with the rate at which I lose my hair:


With regards to my greying hair issue, I’ve been dyeing my hair to help cover the white; however it doesn’t get to the root of the problem. She taught me how I can modify my diet to prevent greying hair such as by eating more oily fish like salmon and cod. She also advised me on what are the vitamins I can consume to help in preventing greying hair.

Each individual’s scalp condition is different, hence with the consultation, they will customise the treatment based on your hair and scalp conditions. The treatment deeply cleanses & nourish my scalp. The European herbs will help to remove skin impurities and particles clogging my pores while the whole treatment will work towards regulating the scalp sebum production. This helps to rejuvenate hair follicles and promote new hair growth. TrichoKare uses premium European botanicals which are chosen by trusted herbalists for their efficacy as the belief is that human bodies respond better to natural treatments. Their products are free from harsh chemicals and are Trichologist-validated.

You guys should know by now that I am a huge fan of blowouts and I constantly get my hair washed at salons. However at TrichoKare, I felt I had the most thorough hair wash ever. It was very gentle and relaxing... I loved the ambience of the place and I've got to say, they play a good choice of music too haha.

The treatment ended with an infra-red machine for better absorption of hair tonics and to increase the blood circulation. I was pretty impressed at how clean my scalp is after just one treatment:
