Time flies and it’s been about 6 months since I’ve found the perfect customised hair treatment for my hair loss.
I underwent a 2-hour session after Topp Care Hair Solutions invited me to try out their customised hair treatment back then. But life got in the way, I was frequently overseas, and just couldn’t find the time to travel down for regular treatment sessions.
And I guess that’s why my scalp has been suffering for the past few months. With hair that turns oily just after a few hours out of the shower, I knew it was about time I did something about it. That’s why when Topp Care contacted me again to check in on my current scalp condition, I jumped on the opportunity with a huge “yes please”!
Curious to see my scalp condition, I headed down for my second session.
It’s good to be back in a familiar place.
If you don’t already know, Topp Care is located in Eastpoint Mall on the 3rd floor and just a 5-minute walk from Simei MRT Station. A very convenient location and easy to get to.
So here I am! I was greeted by the Customer Service Officer at the front desk and ushered into the consultation room after he confirmed my appointment time slot.
While waiting for my hair & scalp specialist, I was asked to fill in my particulars and a short self-assessment of my hair condition. Nothing too difficult here since I’ve done it before on my first visit.
And yes, before I get into the nitty-gritty details of how my second session went, allow me to give you a quick introduction to Topp Care.
Topp Care is a certified member of the British Herbal Medicine Association and the US Trichology Institute. They can assist with age-related greying, hair-thinning issues, uncontrolled sebum build-up, and more because they provide hair solutions for people of all ages.
Only quality plant-derived western botanicals and hair-friendly herbs are used to promote hair growth and enhance scalp health, and they are all administered by US Trichology Institute Certified Specialists in addition to well-trained and experienced therapists.
The hair & scalp specialist who attended to me was none other than Helen, the same specialist that I was assigned to on my first session.
Since it was my second session, we skipped the formalities and went straight into the scan. This scanning machine may be small but it sure is mighty—being able to zoom in up to 200x to spot all your scalp issues.
And lo and behold, here’s what it has found:
The reddish spots on my first scan done 6 months ago were still visible and the excessive sebum build-up on my scalp, as usual, was clogging up my hair follicles.
I wasn’t expecting my scalp condition to improve since I had made no extraordinary effort to deal with my hair issues, except for my daily hair wash and scalp tonic application routine. But I was in for a shock when Helen told me that I’d gotten some dandruff this time around.
Oh my, oh my. This is what months of neglect have gotten me into.
Having seen tremendous improvement from my previous session, I quickly asked Helen what she had in store for me this time since the last session I was treated to a Dead Sea Masque hair treatment.
Helen suggested that I take up the Detoxdren Treatment for this session since it’s the solution to scalps filled with oil and dandruff. Yeast is used in this thorough treatment to nourish hair and scalp, moisturise hair shafts, shield the scalp from damaging UV rays, and promote the creation of collagen.
Additionally, the horse chestnut extract included in this treatment stimulates blood flow, which is good for nourishing and thickening hair. I was told that after the session, my scalp’s sebum level would be more balanced and my hair follicles would be better strengthened.
Omg, give it to me, please.
After the consultation session, I was whisked away to a private cubicle to begin my treatment.
My customised treatment started with a deep scalp cleanse spray followed by a mask application to my roots. Helen was very generous with the mask and you can see it for yourself in these shots I’ve taken:
If you’re wondering why my hair looks messy, that’s because Helen gave me a little massage to make sure that the mask was effectively coating every empty spot on my scalp and hair follicles before leaving me to rest for 20 minutes to let the mask do its work.
It was cooling on my scalp and I loved the minty fragrance that accompanied the product.
When my hair mask time was up, Helen guided me to the hair-washing area and told me that a therapist would be with me shortly to give me a thorough rinse.
The therapist who attended to me gave me a revitalising rinse using lukewarm water, which I was grateful for since I was feeling a little chilly. She also reminded me to use my fingertips and never my nails when washing my hair.
I was given a little massage during shampooing and while a conditioner was applied to the ends of my hair, the therapist shared with me that conditioners should only be applied to the hair and not the scalp. We don’t want any unnecessary build-up adding to my already oily scalp, don’t we?
Anyhow, I was wearing a surgical mask but the scent of the products used was so pleasant I asked the therapist if they sold it in-house. (P.S. Yes they do!)
Back at my cubicle, the therapist applied a moisturising hair spray before semi-blowdrying my hair. We’re approaching the second last step of the hair treatment but I was looking forward to the little massage that comes right after the ampoule application. Hehe.
Just in case you’re wondering, the ampoule helps to stimulate hair growth, boost the immunity of the scalp, and strengthen hair follicles to enhance the anchoring of hair.
To make sure that the ampoule worked its magic into my scalp, I was given the massage I was looking forward to. From my scalp down to my neck and shoulders, I was treated to a mini-kneading session to get my blood circulating.
Similar to the last session, I was then treated with the Hair Growth Laser that emits non-invasive lasers to awaken my hair follicles and speed up regeneration. It may look scary to some but there’s no pain involved; you will only feel a little comforting warmth.
And we’re done after about 20 minutes and it’s time for a post-treatment scan.
I reunited with Helen again in the consultation room after my hair treatment and she put the scalp scan machine to work again.
Having experienced the “before” and “after” shots of my scalp during the first session, I had high hopes for this second one. And guess what? It didn’t disappoint.
If you’re skeptical about how one treatment can solve your hair woes, I’m living proof that you shouldn’t be. But of course, as with most things, severe hair problems don’t get solved after one treatment session.
After this session, I’ve learned not to underestimate what months of neglect can do to my scalp, and will certainly step up my game with regular, proper hair and scalp care to prevent my condition from worsening again.
And if you’re dedicated to nipping the problem in the bud, I suggest you give Topp Care Hair Solutions a chance to impress you.
You may have a different hair or scalp concern from mine but rest assured that the professionals at Topp Care will be with you every step of the way.
So stop hesitating and…
Your scalp’s awaiting some TLC! 😉
