While I love my hair and would go to the ends (hair ends that is) to care for them, I hate to address some of the issues I face about them. Like hair loss. Am I suffering from hair loss? No, I reject that. But I could certainly do with more hair growth. It’s just a very hairy issue that I don’t really like to discuss in detail although I still do some things here and there to encourage the hair follicles. Anyway, I’m not blogging about the things I do to my hair today. Instead, I want to direct your attention to the Apivita Propoline Women’s Tonic Shampoo For Thinning Hair that I recently received from the brand.
Next to deodorants, I’m most reluctant to change shampoos once I’ve found something that works for me. Hair is a big deal for me and keeping it looking great has been a key lifelong goal. But I’m still curious and once a while, I’ll take an excursion to venture something new. I’m currently using the Giovanni Golden Wheat Deep Cleanse Shampoo but have been alternating that with the Giovanni Root 66 Max Volume Shampoo. Yes, anything that promises to increase body to limp and lifeless hair gets my interest all the time.
Looks like my hair is on a roll these two weeks. First a hair consultation and now a hair makeover. Anyway, some of you may remember how I’d griped about my challenge to find a suitable hairstylist at the end of October. Well, I went for a haircut a week after writing that post but I was still not satisfied with how it had turned out. Don’t mind me but I’ve been super fussy when it comes to my hair since I was a teen. So just as I was contemplating if I should swallow my pride and return to my old hairstylist, I received an invitation to have a hair makeover at Backstage Hair Salon. After some humming and hawing at my end, I finally headed down on Sunday with a friend. But I’ll admit I was hesitant. With a name like Backstage, who is to say my hair won’t turn up looking all wayang? Wayang, for my international readers, is the Singlish equivalent of theatrical.
During one of the Saturdays last month, I paid a visit to Thomson Specialist Skin Centre and met up with dermatologist, Dr Tan Hiok Hee, to consult him about hair loss. Well, the purpose of my consultation was threefold. One was to find out about my own hair condition from a clinical standpoint, another was to understand the types of hair loss treatments available and finally, I wanted to know how Thomson Specialist Skin Centre differs from the usual salons that offer such treatments.
