As much as we don’t like to admit it, hair thinning and hair loss are both real concerns that many above the age of 30 would start noticing. The most common symptom would be noticing an increased number of fallen hair strands on your hair brush or your floor.
Home remedies are not as effective
As busy individuals, we’re sure that the first solution you thought of was to look for home remedies so that you wouldn’t have to spend any additional effort in treating your hair loss concerns. After all, many of us still have to do household chores upon arriving home after a long day of work. The little rest we get is usually spent on talking and bonding with your loved ones.
One of the most common home remedies is to pick up bottles of hair loss shampoos and tonics from stores in hopes that they would help alleviate the symptoms.
Unfortunately, what many people don’t realise is that the most common reason for hair loss is a greasy scalp and clogged pores brought upon by the humid and warm weather we have on our sunny island. As such, the products that we purchase usually won’t provide any significant results even if they’re of good quality. This is because the nutrients from the products can’t even get absorbed by a clogged scalp.
At the end of the day, you’re just spending hundreds of dollars on something that does very little for you.
Instead of doing that, here are some hair care tips you might want to try for more effective results!
1. Avoid tight hairstyles
Wearing your hair in tight braids and tight ponytails may be fashionable, but these hairstyles can cause unnecessary pressure that pulls your hair away from your scalp. Over time, this will increase your hair’s likeliness to fall because the bonds between your hair strands and your scalp are weakened.
Trust us, loose hairstyles are super trendy and cute too. Plus, they don’t increase hair fall!
2. Avoid chemical processes
We all know coloured hair and perms are way too attractive for most of us to resist having them, but if you’re concerned about hair fall, it’s best that you limit the times you go for such treatments.
While they look beautiful, such chemical processes can damage your hair by splitting the protein molecules called keratin within each strand. This causes your hair follicles to weaken gradually where they will then fall out.
3. Minimise the use of high-heat hair styling tools
Another hair care tip that is very important is to minimise your usage of high-heat hair styling tools. Yes, they are more effective in giving you that beautiful hairstyle you’re going for, but doing so frequently can cause your hair follicles to become dehydrated and vulnerable to damage due to the moisture in your hair shafts expanding.
Curls can be obtained using no-heat methods, so you can definitely check them out instead of whipping out your hair curler every time you head out of the house!
4. Use a natural shampoo that is suited to your hair
Just like how we need to clear our face and bodies from any impurities by using the appropriate cleansers and soap, your hair also needs to be shampooed in order for you to get rid of all the dirt, oils, and bacteria you’ve accumulated over the day. However, instead of just picking a shampoo that looks or smells good, you should find one that is suited to your hair and scalp concerns.
Experts have warned that ingredients such as sulphates and cause frizz, scalp dryness, and even fragile hair, so if you’re looking to curb this problem, be sure to look for a pH-balanced shampoo with as many natural ingredients as possible.
Of course, such remedies can only work to a certain extent. If you want to see significant results, it’s best that you nip the issue right in the bud and look to deep cleansing your scalp first. A more effective way that won’t take you weeks or even months to see results would be to go for Beijing 101’s Meridian Hair & Scalp Treatment.
Beijing 101 Meridian Hair & Scalp Treatment
The Beijing 101 Meridian Hair & Scalp Treatment is meant to deep-cleanse your scalp and follicles of impurities so that it can better absorb nutrients. Think of it as being similar to using makeup remover, cleanser, and exfoliator on your skin to cleanse off all excess sebum, impurities, dead skin cells, and bacteria before applying your usual skincare routine.
The treatment starts off with a scalp scan in a private consultation room where a hair consultant will analyse your scalp condition. Here, you’ll be able to find out if you have clogged follicles, a dry or greasy scalp, and whether your hair loss is due to lifestyle habits or scalp issues.
The hair consultant will then customise a hair treatment for you to experience the best and most effective results.
You will proceed to the treatment area and have a cooling mask applied all over your scalp.
This will feel incredibly refreshing as you sit back on a comfortable chair. The mask will deep cleanse your scalp and remove any impurities and bacteria build-up so that your hair follicles can be unclogged.
Once your scalp is deeply cleansed, you will be brought to wash off the mask with a herbal hair wash.
That’s right, all the products used at Beijing 101 are made from premium grade Chinese herbs such as Lingzhi, Dang Gui, and Ginseng, all of which are beneficial in promoting blood circulation to stimulate hair growth and in nourishing the scalp. This means that you’ll be receiving hair-loving nutrients every step of the way.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about the products being harmful since they are not made from any chemicals!
After the herbal hair wash, a customised hair tonic made from similar premium-grade Chinese herbs will be applied onto your scalp and you will get to enjoy an acupressure-point scalp massage that is meant to improve blood circulation to stimulate hair growth.
This massage was specially developed through Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy to prevent hair loss. This works because it removes blood stasis, dilates the blood capillaries of the scalp, promotes blood circulation, and nourishes the scalp skin as well as muscles. This then activates the pilimetrocytes and stimulates the melanin cells for hair growth.
If you’re worried about this being painful, don’t be; this will feel just like a pampering scalp massage. In fact, we bet that you would even wish for the treatment to continue for much longer!
After the entire treatment is done, you will be brought back to the consultation room for a post-treatment scalp analysis. Based on the reviews and photo proof of Beijing 101’s customers’ pre- and post-treatment scalp scans, all of them reported seeing visible results of a healthier scalp in just one session.
