Happy Lunar New Year!

Due the humid weather in Singapore, it’s natural for everyone’s scalp to get a little oily sometimes. In fact, the presence of oil or sebum is actually good as it helps protect the scalp and support healthy hair.

However, if your hair feels greasy or dirty all the time, it could be a sign of an abnormally oily scalp which is highly problematic. The source of oily scalp varies from internal factors such as genetics and skin conditions (eczema and psoriasis, for example) to external causes like over-washing your hair and using chemical-laden products.

So, what can we do to treat scalp oiliness? With home remedies being largely anecdotal with no proven effectiveness, the only viable solution left is professional treatments in hair salons and hair care centres that specifically target oily scalp.

Ahead, 12 of the top professional oily scalp treatments that you can consider trying instead of unscientific home remedies.

Scalp oiliness won’t stand a chance with Bee Choo Origin’s Signature Herbal Treatment.

The five-step signature treatment is powered by a proprietary Herbal Cream that’s made fresh in Singapore with 16 all-natural herbal ingredients including premium Chinese herbs such as ginseng, dang gui, he shou wu, and lingzhi as well as extracts of herbal leaves to rid pores of excess sebum and residue buildup, provide much-needed nutrients, and rebalance the scalp’s pH level.

Scalp Deep Cleansing Spa by Covo Hair Salon

Cny Hair Covo

What’s special about this treatment?

Over here at Daily Vanity, we love a good scalp massage because when done right, it not only ameliorates poor blood flow but also releases all the pent-up tension in your body and mind.

The scalp gel, which contains cherry leaf extract and red wine yeast extract, is meant to thoroughly lift away any grime and impurities while moisturising the scalp and alleviating scalp redness. The scalp massage only lasts no more than 10 minutes but it’s so enjoyable, you’d wish it can go on forever.

The price for Scalp Deep Cleansing Spa is S$75. You can get S$20 off the treatment if you pair it with other salon services.

Pure Oxygen Scalp Treatment by Cambridge Therapeutics

Cambridge Therapeutics Interior

What’s special about this treatment?

This advanced treatment combines the use of growth factors, oxygen, pulsed radio frequency, laser to clean out any sort of buildup and reset the natural sebum secretion cycle to help achieve normal oil secretion.

After an in-depth scalp analysis, a scalp cleansing device that utilises water jet system and gentle vacuuming action is used to effectively remove dirt or pollutants so that the serum – chosen according to your scalp condition – can be better absorbed.

A serum that contains all the necessary minerals, vitamins that can help to regulate oil production in the scalp and prevent hair follicles from being regularly clogged up is then applied onto the scalp. There is also growth factors in the serum formula to further promote hair growth.

Following the serum application, a highly concentrated stream of oxygen is then used to further infuse the nutrients, increase flow of oxygen, and improve blood circulation to the follicles.

Next comes the massage but unlike the conventional manual massage, this treatment incorporates patented pulsed radio frequency to deliver energy to the hair follicle’s growth factors and the scalp. The energy waveform provides a form of bio-stimulation to the scalp and follicle’s cells to promote circulation, regulate hair growth, and reduce inflammation.

To step it up a notch, the treatment also employs safe laser wavelengths which are able to stimulate the growth factors already present within the hair follicles. All of these processes help to improve blood circulation to the scalp and deliver important nutrients that will nourish and create an optimal environment for a healthy scalp.

The Pure Oxygen Scalp Treatment is priced at S$260, but a first-trial price of S$88 is available to new customers. Both prices are not yet inclusive of GST.

Founded by a team of top doctors in the field of medical aesthetics, Cambridge Therapeutics is a specialised medi-spa for the face, body, and hair that integrates a science-based approach along with premium products for all its doctor-curated therapy options.
