What happens during a hair treatment at X'pect Studio?

Recently, I was concerned about my seemingly lifeless hair. It was so difficult to tame, being frizzy and awkwardly angled every time I brushed it aside. I was really excited when X'pect Hair Studio invited me to try one of their hair packages — hair dye, hair treatment, anything at all. Since my hair was already coloured, I decided to have a hair treatment session with them!

1. Analysing the hair before treatment

My senior stylist, Catherine Cheung, first analysed my hair and scalp. She was spot-on in declaring that my scalp was usually oily by the end of the day. There were many times I felt SO IRRITATED by my flat and sweaty hair (and I could never guess I had oily hair)! She said this is common due to the humidity in Singapore.

2. Applying Menthol treatment on the scalp

My hair looks shiny in the picture here, but that's because I used L'oreal Extraordinary Oil before going out! Catherine was very meticulous during the application process. She was also very sensitive to how comfortable I was throughout, and I felt really touched by the warmth of her service.

She also shared several haircare tips as I lamented how dead and dry my hair was. I loved her sweet and down-to-earth demeanour, and she was really efficient.

3. Applying hair treatment for each strand of hair

I don't know what we were laughing about, but it was a really fun and jolly hair care session! They were also really transparent with the process as I asked what sort of products they used. Interestingly, they used a 'les T'Q' hair product which I cannot find on the internet. It seemed compatible with the menthol hair scalp treatment. I felt like the temperature of my hair decreased a lot... it was really cold! 

4. Massaging the head so that the treatment is absorbed by the hair

 My favourite part was the head massage. I almost fell asleep as she applied pressure to the various acupressure points on my head.

5. Using an ice cool steam technology for better absorption

Next, Cath used an icy cool steam technology on my locks. I felt like Princess Elsa from Frozen... with my head emitting some sort of ice fog, haha!

6. Using ultraviolet electrodes to sterilise the scalp and kill bacteria

It felt really weird to hear electrical noises near my scalp. The process was completely painless, although I kept jerking to the strange sound. Cath was really nice as she constantly checked if I was fine throughout the process. 

7. Cutting my hair and trimming loose ends

After that, Cath did a really quick job in cutting my hair. She asked what sort of style I wanted and I said I wanted a side-swept fringe, but I think I look nicer with bangs. Hmm... Cuter right? HAHA! (in fact, someone asked which secondary school I was from after that)

 It's a wrap! Thanks to the lovely Catherine Cheung, senior hairstylist at X'pect gallery! If you're fixing an appointment, do ask for her services!

Also a heartfelt thanks to my lovely PR Analyst, Mistical! She captured all the images and stood by my side throughout the entire session. :)

UPDATE: Several weeks on, my hair is still vibrant, soft and shiny!
