These days, experts say your hair is what really betrays your age.
Here's how to stay forever young — follicularly speaking.
Concerned about how my hair's really brittle these days due to my obsession with bleaching, and also some bumps from clogged follicles on my scalp recently, I went to TK TrichoKare at Serangoon NEX the other day to get my scalp checked.
Waiting at their comfortable treatment room with a lovely cup of tea for consultation :)
TrichoKare is an award-winning hair and scalp care centre, and these are the awards they've won this year!
I was going for the Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment, which fights signs of ageing hair problems.
It's a new anti-aging hair treatment by TrichoKare to combat:
1. Thinning Hair
2. Grey Hair
It is specially developed to help both men and women counteract age-related changes in the density and diameter of their hair. It entails an elaborate treatment process that incorporates premium European herbal hair remedies to promote hair growth as well as nourish and strengthen hair follicles.
Like all treatments at TrichoKare, the Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment is validated by certified Trichologists - specialists who study and diagnose hair and scalp problems, giving clients an added assurance of its effectiveness.
Side note, I'm really loving the interior of the place!
The customised treatment involved a series of elaborate steps: Scalp purifying mask, Deep cleansing wash, Tonic, Scalp massage, Oxyjet and Infrared therapy light session.
Trying to channel some Alicia Keys vibe after my hair wash hahah!
The scalp purification mask was cooling and soothing. It helps to deeply cleanse the scalp by removing impurities and excess sebum.
The wash was professionally done by one of their hair expert. They massage each and every single pressure point and the soothing botanical hair wash which will deeply cleanse and regulate the pH balance of your scalp, while removing the dead skin and grime.
The customised tonic helps to strengthen the cohesion of keratin fibres to improve the hair density. I almost fell asleep several times during the treatment because the Trichologist was so awesome with the scalp massage!
So shiok and relaxing, plus knowing that it helps my scalp to become healthier, allowing me to enjoy the treatment to the fullest.
Side note again, these are real functioning massage chairs in the treatment room okay.
I had mine switched on during my treatment. Pretty much treatment fit for royalty!
The Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment also uses Oxyjet Technology that has 6 benefits,
and contains these two key ingredients to counteract ageing hair:
• Boost the diameter and thickness of each hair
• Reactivate 80% of dormant hair follicles
Ginkgo Biloba Extract
• Counteract signs of scalp ageing
• Boost collagen to increase new hair growth

Cooling and comfortable!
Last step of the treatment, Infrared therapy light got me looking like Dr Octopus (Spiderman's Enemy) haha!
Just a quick shoutout to the Trichologist for doing such a great job styling my hair after the treatment too!
Back to the consultation room to do a scan of my scalp after the treatment!
Below are some close ups of post scalp treatment.
My scalp looks a lot cleaner, and I was informed that although I rarely experience any itch on my scalp, there are still some slight red spots that I need to take note of.
Also, my hair has start thinning and that could be risky cause I'm only 27 this year.
I'm always worried about skincare, my health and what not, but I definitely need to pay more attention to scalp care from now on!
Good news is, after just one session at TrichoKare, my scalp felt and looked a lot cleaner!
Even now in the humid weather, my scalp was perfectly free from itch till the next day,
My scalp usually gets greasy quickly, and I often can feel some small bumps on my scalp here and there.
The Trichologist also taught me a special technique of washing my hair to cleanse it better to prevent clogged follicles, and guess what? I legitly feel the difference when I massage my scalp now :D
No longer gross and bumpy!
Sadly, hair & scalp issues can't be cured in one treatment.
It requires commitment and discipline to get your treatments done over a period of time, as well as proper maintenance at home, just like skincare!
If you have scalp issues that you're concerned about (greasy scalp, thinning hair, brittle hair etc.), I'd definitely recommend getting your scalp checked.
It's always better to be safe than sorry!
And there's no time better than NOW as TrichoKare is having a promotion for the Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment that I did at ONLY $40!
You'll also go home with a Hair Care Kit + HairGRO Serum (U.P. $758)!
You cannot miss out on this!
