Having healthy hair is not just about keeping it shiny and smooth as hair care should extend all the way to the scalp and roots, where it’s actually the most important.
Gary Chew, Director and Founder of Mi the Salon and Salon Vim says, “A lot of people don’t realise that the scalp is an extension of your face, and should be accorded with the same attention as you would with your face.” Like your complexion, it also produces sebum and is susceptible to external aggressors like free radical damage and stress. However, there are more repercussions that come with an accumulation of dead skin cells or excess sebum – when the pores are clogged, hair can be weakened, causing more fallouts. You may also experience slow regrowth, and in some extreme cases, your follicles may even go into dormancy.
An average person’s hair care routine usually consists of just shampoo and conditioner, and maybe the occasional mask when you have more time to spare. Unlike the attention and care most of us give to our skin, hair care routines often feel like you’re just going through the motions; unless you own a scalp scanner, chances are, you’d never really know if your scalp is healthy and clean.
The thing is, caring for your hair really isn’t that far off from the skincare which you are already familiar with. For one, the concept of “prevention is better than cure” also rings true for your hair. And just as you would give your skin some TLC in the form of facials, a monthly treatment would do wonders in maintaining healthy hair and scalp. Whether it’s in the salon or at home, the Kérastase Chronologiste range can nourish your scalp and hair with a trifecta of star ingredients that work together to help it reach its most youthful state.
We often talk about the benefits of hyaluronic acid in skincare, but this hydrating ingredient does wonders for the hair as well. It’s a humectant which is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, plumping the hair and scalp. In doing so, your hair also appears fuller and the scalp is less scaly and dry.
Another ingredient that is often found in skincare products, vitamin E has antioxidant properties which neutralises free radicals that constantly bombard the hair and scalp and cause damage to cells. Vitamin E also improves blood circulation and elasticity so that hair is able to withstand tugs as well as day-to-day combing with less risk of fallouts.
A molecule that’s extracted from the deep abysses of the ocean, this ingredient thrives in extreme conditions. It also has amazing regenerative properties, helping hair and scalp bounce back from damage sustained over time.
The Complete Chronologiste Regimen
Princess Caviar Treatment
The Princess Caviar Treatment at Salon Vim promises to pamper your hair from scalp to ends using products from the Kérastase Chronologiste range. An expert will scan your scalp, assess its condition and determine the best care for your scalp and tresses. If you’ve been experiencing problems like increased hair fall or itchy scalp, this scan will also reveal the underlying problems that may have caused it.
A pampering pre-cleanse massages the scalp to rid it of sebum and impurities that are clogging your follicles, and improve overall scalp circulation. This is followed by a hair wash, and mask, all accompanied by massages on the scalp, neck and shoulders for a truly relaxing experience. A post-treatment scalp scan will also show you how the scalp condition has improved in just one treatment, and the best at-home care to keep your hair and scalp in perfect condition.
Enjoy the Princess Caviar Treatment at Salon Vim at an introductory price of $198 before GST (U.P $388). Terms and conditions apply.
