    Pamper your hair

    PRIMPING and preening are surely something many people take time and effort to do


    This sometimes involves investing in various hair services such as dyeing, blow-drying, and styling - which, however, can be damaging to your hair. Continual exposure to harmful ultra-violet rays does little to help too.

    And, often, many people forget that having healthy hair is just as important as looking good on the outside.

    To give your tresses that extra bit of care, head to home-grown scalp-care spa Luxe Scalp Specialist for a monthly hair-pampering session.

    Its signature Luxe Treatment, priced at $980 for 10 sessions of 21/2 hours each, is suitable for tackling all hair concerns, or simply maintaining good scalp and hair health.

    It begins with a scalp analysis by a consultant, which lays the ground for a customised treatment. All consultants and therapists at Luxe have been trained by a certified trichologist.

    This is followed by a wooden comb massage, which boosts blood and oxygen circulation, before a high-frequency machine transmits micro-electric currents to kill bacteria on the scalp.

    Customers will then have their scalps massaged with ginger wine. Later, a unique blend of premium Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs is applied. These range from ginseng to fenugreek seeds.

    The all-natural concoction, which contains no chemical preservatives, helps to stimulate healthy hair growth, reduce itchiness and nourish follicles. It also treats hair problems such as clogged follicles, oily scalps and dandruff.

    Next, a 30-minute micro-mist steam session that allows the scalp to fully absorb the nutrients in the herbs follows, as well as a deep-cleansing hair bath, and an invigorating acupressure massage.

    Infrared heat therapy, designed to eliminate bacteria, finally seals in all the herbal goodness, leaving one's hair feeling fuller and well nourished.

    At Luxe, the combination of massage and natural herbs helps treat various hair problems. These include male- and female-pattern hair loss, excessive oiliness of the scalp, dandruff and acne on the scalp.

    First-time customers can now enjoy a trial session of the Luxe Treatment at just $18 (usual price $150). Those interested can call 6702-0777 for an appointment.

    Luxe Scalp Specialist is at Chinatown Point, 133 New Bridge Road, #02-28. For more information, visit www.luxeherbal.com
