Less Bald

Hahaha at the title. But that’s what I feel lately! As you all know, I started treatments at Yun Nam Hair Care about 2 months back (LINK) and here’s some updates on the progress so far!!

Honestly, 2 months is not a long time to see progress, especially since my scalp is in a pretty disastrous state to begin with. Plus work has been so busy so I can’t go for treatments as regularly as I should. But still, I noticed some improvements to my hair!!

This was my hair about 6 months back:

Omg so horrible.This was taken before I went to the salon and the last I washed my hair was 24hrs ago. As you can see, my scalp is super oily, and my hair parting is becoming more and more obvious (ie I’m balding)… It was really horrible and I get so worried that the situation would worsen.

You can see that I’m definitely balding!

Fast forward to 6 months later..

After treatments with Yun Nam Hair Care, I can feel that my scalp is less oily and at least now when I take photos the bald patch isn’t so obvious now!

Some before and after scans after 3 scalp treatments with Yun Nam Hair Care. Still not totally oil free, but at least it’s less oily now already and there’s not much oil clumps like before.

As you can see, my pores are alot more open now!

After my deep cleansing scalp treatments, I’m actually going to start on the re-growth treatment. Can’t wait! Now that my scalp is cleansed and hair follicles less clogged, the scalp will then be better able to absorb whatever nutrients we try to replenish it with. Hence it’s really important to do deep cleansing on the scalp first for more effective treatments after that.

Now I’m more confident when I take photos of top view of my head. Less bald patches!

I’m not going to lie.. It doesn’t take just 1 treatment to perform a miracle and see drastic results.. You have to go through a series of treatment to really see the effects.

Healthy hair with Yun Nam Hair Care!

For the past 2-3 years I’ve been facing problems with oily scalp and thinning hair and lately there has been more obvious bald patches on my head!! I think it’s all the stress I’ve been facing ever since I started work and my unhealthy diet which caused this problem. I’ve went for numerous scalp treatments before and have also tried so many hair products which were said to help with thinning/oily hair. Most were over-the-counter products and some were bought from my hair salon.. The results? Mehhh, my hair was still the same.

So after trying all sort of various methods, I decided to give Yun Nam Hair Care a try… After all they specialise in hair problems! And I’m only 25 I need to take care of my hair!!

At Yun Nam, they have equipments to do a full hair analysis on your hair.. Which is very important because then we would be able to able to see what is beneath our scalp and solve the root of the problem.

A peek at my hair condition. Doesn’t look super bad but that bald patch is growing!!! And you can see some redness in my scalp too which indicates that it’s sensitive.

My hair scans.

My hair consultant, Michelle, explained that my sebaceous glands are too active, hence causing alot of oil clogs in my hair. This causes my hair pores to be blocked and not allowing oxygen or nutrients to be absorbed at all. No wonder all my products didn’t work! Prolonged blockage also causes my hair roots to become weak and hence prone to breakage and falls easily. :(

These white flaky things are actually oil clogs, and not dandruff like what I thought it to be.

Normal healthy hair should have about 3-4 hair strands growing out from a single pore, but if you look at mine, most only has 1 hair growing out.. And there was 1 pore with 2 strands going out but one of it was white hair… The horror!!

Starting my treatment! Michelle did a 2 in 1 Scalp Treatment (Deep Cleansing & Regrowth Treatment) for me that day to help open up my pores + for the nutrients to penetrate the roots. All the treatments at Yun Nam will be customised based on the individual’s scalp conditions, and I also love how the products they use is 100% herbal formula and chemical free.

We started off with giving the hair a thorough wash!

And here’s my customised formula. I think I’m one of the few who loves the smell of herbal.

I was surprised by how fast the treatments are at Yun Nam.. After this was applied to the scalp, my hair was put on a steamer to let the hair absorb the nutrients, followed by wash off. Michelle explained that they’re letting the herbs to absorb the oil for deep cleansing. Took much faster than all the other treatments I’ve done before.

And the results? My scalp was much cleaner and less oily and clogged by the end of the treatment!!

See! My pore has opened up already!

Okay, to be honest, you’ll definitely see results after any deep cleansing treatments.. I feel that what matters most is the after-care products you use at home. Before I started with Yun Nam, after I wash my hair, I’ll feel this oily feeling in my hands whenever I blow-dry it. It feels like my scalp is forever not clean. And after doing a scalp treatment, it feels clean for about 2-3 days, then it’s back to normal again.

I’ve been using these hair products at Yun Nam for about 2 weeks already. What I use is very simple – Shampoo, conditioner, and a treatment product for my scalp after that. AND HERE’S THE THING.. Even after 2 weeks, I don’t have that oily feeling and I can feel that my scalp is actually clean after every wash. And I really like the Ginseng smell in my shampoo, it feels so luxurious! In case you’re wondering, the products are not overly pricey, and in fact it’s much cheaper than what I paid for at hair salons which didn’t work. My mum had itchy scalp one day and I told her to try my shampoo and she said it feels better after that.

Looking forward to my journey with Yun Nam for the next few months and I’m excited to get healthy hair soon!!

Event: Phyto Paris – World’s 1st Hair Loss Treatment Made for Woman

I was invited to a cosy lunch event by the kind people at Phyto to understand more about our hair! Our hair is more complex than it seems and statistics have shown that as many as 45% of all women experience hair loss and thinning at certain stages in life. The most common causes includes hormonal changes, diet deficiency or iron and protein, stress, pollution, use of unsuitable hair products, etc.

Losing about 50 hair strands daily is part of the regular functioning of our scalp and the life cycle of our hair. Beyond that, hair loss is considered excessive. Women’s hair loss pattern is identified with increased thinning all over the scalp with noticeable reduced hair density along the frontal hairline and crown of the scalp.

Phyto Phytolium, Phyto Phytocyane – Both shampoos are for thinning hair.

Phyto is a actually a pioneer in merging active plant botanicals with modern science, to restore the hair back to its healthiest condition. The Phyto formulas are founded on the combination of almost 500 active ingredients and contain over 95% natural and botanical origin ingredients.

Phyto actually has a really wide range of shampoos (I think about 19?) to suit different types of hair condition and needs (like thinning, lifeless hair.)

Apart from daily essentials like shampoos, scalp treatments are equally important to help restore your hair!

Under the Phytocyane range, there’s a Phytocyane Revitalizing Thinning Hair Treamtment to help regenerate and strengthen the hair bulb, trigger hair regrowth, delay the onset of greying hair and give hydration and volume to the hair for a natural shine.

For chronic and severe thinning hair, there’s Phytolium 4 which helps stimulate existing hair and protect future hair.

Comes in a small bottle like this to apply to the scalp.

I like how the treatment range actually comes with this nozzle for precise application to the scalp to avoid any wastage.

We also had our scalp examined with this little machine!

Applying the Phytopolleine on my scalp.

Here’s the before and after photos. Look at how disgustingly clogged my scalp was prior to applying the product. The Phytopolleine is a pre-shampoo treatment which helps to cleanse, normalize and enhance hair and scalp.

Apart from the informative session, we were served really good lunch!! Been such a long time since we had proper lunch during events… Lunch was at LE Restaurant and Asian Tapas Bar @ Suntec City.

Their signature Dirty Duck which reminded me abit of Peking Duck but it’s a little different. This was SO good!!!

Cream of Bak Kut Teh.
So good too! Love the bacon at the side.

Grilled Spare Ribs with Honey Pepper Sauce.

Crispy Crystal Prawn with Wasabi Mayo Sauce.
The prawns were really big and juicy!

Stir-fried Asparagus with Wild Fungus.

Ended off with dessert of our choice! Basically everything was really good! Would love to dine there again soon!!

Thanks Phyto for the wonderful event + food! I’ve been using Phyto products since then and I love them!! Phyto is available at all Robinsons, John Little, Beauty by Nature Stores and selected stores at Watsons, Guardian, BHG, Metro and Unity.
