Are you one of those suffering from post-COVID-19 symptoms such as severe hair loss? Did you know that our scalp ages six times faster than our skin? Like our facial skin, the scalp ages and experiences changes as we age. In addition, the scalp is more susceptible to bacteria growth due to its lower barrier function. Over time, improper scalp care affects scalp health and may result in scalp issues such as dandruff and even hair loss.

Why do we religiously follow a six-step (cleanse, exfoliate, tone, fortify, moisturise, mask) beauty regimen but do not offer the same level of care to our scalp? With 100,000 hair follicles on our scalp, it pays for us to better care of our hair and scalp. Here are seven top tips to give your scalp and hair the necessary care. Yahoo Shopping found a list of hair and scalp products with thousands (some tens and thousands) of good reviews so you can have shiny, beautiful hair. You’re welcome! Plus, deets on a very special offer for Coulisse Heir's specially curated scalp treatment that promises to address temporal hair loss be it due to pregnancy or COVID-19 (for Yahoo readers only!). Read on to find out more!

Tip 1: Exfoliate

Similar to our skin, our scalp also requires exfoliation due to the build-up of products. Since the scalp is where our hair grows from, it makes sense for us to get to its root cause (pun intended). Maintaining a clean and healthy scalp can, in turn, bring about a head of lustrous, healthy hair. Only then can the natural oils produced by our scalp keep the hair and scalp nourished and allow for healthy hair growth. Try using your fingertips (note: not fingernails) to massage in a circular motion as you shampoo. Target to exfoliate once or twice a week.

Tip 4: Processed hair requires TLC

Despite being aware of how damaging dyeing and perming are to our hair and scalp, it may be a tall order for first-worlders like us to avoid treating ourselves to a different look now and then. Instead, prevent any further damage by using restorative hair care products. Give your hair a treat!

Tip 5: Give your scalp the sun care it needs

Most of us neglect that the scalp is the same piece of skin from our face that covers and protects our head. We do not hesitate to apply sunscreen on our skin but do we do the same to protect our hair and scalp? Suncare is of vital importance to our scalp too! Besides donning a hat under the hot sun and using UV-protection umbrellas, did you know that you can also spray sunscreen on your hair to protect your scalp?

Coulisse Heir, an avant-garde boutique, offers premium hair and scalp services in the heart of Orchard Road. As with skin, each of our scalp conditions is different. Here, you will get a hair analysis, performance-based hair services and scalp therapy. And if you are looking at exclusivity, their premium individual pod service will ensure a pampering session.

With 18 years in the beauty industry, we got Coulisse Heir co-founder Selina Ong, who also recovered from COVID-19 recently to share more on Post-Covid Hair Loss Therapy (60 min, S$197).

PROMOTION: Enjoy 50% off Post-Covid Hair Loss Therapy when you quote "Yahoo50".

Valid till 30 June 2023.

"We have had an increasing number of customers experiencing unexplained hair loss, with several being only in their twenties. Anyone who has experienced hair loss can attest to how distressing it is. Our treatment has already helped many of our customers regain their confidence. If there’s one good thing that has come out of the pandemic is that it has normalised the topic of mental health and the importance of self-care for one’s body, mind and soul." Selina Ong

Administered by experienced and trained therapists, the new scalp treatment uses Coulisse Heir’s in-house product range.

The 60-minute treatment aims to:

- protect and revive weakened roots

- promote regeneration and strengthen blood capillaries

- promote better absorption of nutrients

The Process

The Post-Covid Anti-Hair Loss Therapy begins with hair brushing and a shoulder massage to relieve tension and to get the scalp ready. The Co-Cleanser is applied to the scalp to lift off build-up, followed by double cleansing with the Hair Loss Cleanser, which is gently massaged in to stimulate hair follicles.

The salon also offers a range of hair and scalp treatments and products. Check in-house for more details!
