DRx Trichology – The DRx Clinic’s Arm For Scalp & Hair Care

My visit to DRx Trichology – time for some loveeee for my scalp! As you know, I just gave birth and I am dreading the hair loss that will happen to every post natal woman! *GASP* I best give my hair and scalp some love and care so that my hair will grow back sooner. Healthy hair comes from healthy scalp, so off I go to take better care of my scalp.

Since my skin is SO well taken care of at The DRx Clinic, I headed to The DRx Trichology this time to have my scalp cared for. DRx Trichology is not like a Beijing 101/Yunan Haircare. All the treatments here formulated are based on medical science. At DRx Trichology, you are seeing a hair & scalp specialist (a trichologist) for your hair and scalp problems.

Hair Analysis

I met the very enthusiastic Peggy, resident trichologist, at The DRx Trichology who did an analysis of my scalp. As expected, my hair growth at this point (2 months post partum) is at it’s best with many hairs in every follicle (because of decreased hair fall during pregnancy). The front part of my hairline has receded a little though and a quick magnified scan on that area showed a lot of light baby hair growing. Peggy said that that’s a sign of that Baby Daniel is absorbing nutrients that my body needs and it’s normal for new mothers. I am advised to keep up with my supplements and to ensure I eat lots of good protein (our hair is made up of 98% protein!).

A look from the top also shows that while my hair is still thriving, I do need to care for my parting – I am advised to change my parting soon. If you look at the picture above, you can see that along where my hair parts, you can see quite a fair bit of my scalp. :/ Oh gosh. My hairline on the bottom left picture has also receded more than the part on my right.

While I was gasping anxiously, Peggy showed me examples of some of her other customers who achieved hair regrowth and managed to recover lost hair. I felt more relieved. Work your magic on my hair already!

Oh did I mention that I love going for scalp analysis because you learn so much about your scalp and how to care for your scalp every time? Peggy was very enlightening.

Another magnified view of my top shows that I have a layer of oil on my scalp and my hair roots are covered in puddles of oil. :/ A heathly hair follicle should have space all around it like a pit for the hair to expand. Mine are all covered with oil. I felt sick looking at it. It was like my hair were all swimming in little puddles of oil. So embarrassing :/

DRx Trichology Scalp Treatment

Peggy assures me that the DRx Purifying Treatment that I’ll be doing will clean my scalp up real well. This deep-cleansing treatment exfoliates the scalp to remove debris and irritants, providing immediate soothing relief. Future problems are also kept in check with the regulation of sebum production to create a balanced and healthy scalp.

After my consultation was done, I was introduced to Boey who will be doing the treatment for me.

She was very friendly and asked questions about my hair habits like how often I colour and how often I cut my hair, etc. First, she massaged an oil into my scalp meant to soften dead skin cells on the scalp.

After a good, strong rub, my hair is steamed for 10mins and then a good clean wash. Sooo relaxing can…

Boey is very nice. She gave me lots of tips on hair care.

After my hair was dry, Boey lightly sprayed a Purifying Serum onto my scalp to moisturise my scalp. Depending on the hair problem (hairless / dandruff / etc.) you are facing, the serum applied will differ.

Check out this Micro Needle. It’s a brush with very micro needle points (0.5mm long) that’s used for the DRx Intensive Hair Rejuvenation Treatment. This is rolled all over my scalp to stimulate hair growth, release any ingrown hair and increase absorption of the serum. It doesn’t hurt much except at areas where there are less hair (my front hairline)! But this is very good if you want to grow more hair. Who said beauty comes easy?

Next up is 20mins on this UFO looking machine! It’s the DRx Laser Hair & Scalp Therapy. It regrows hair by stimulating the scalp, increasing blood flow and suppressing harmful effects of DHT on hair growth. I thought it might be hot or painful but I felt absolutely nothing at all. Turns out, Trichological lasers are special Low Level Light Lasers which don’t hurt at all. No discomfort at all. :)

DRx Trichology

This is a great option for those looking for an alternative to painful, unnatural looking hair transplants or surgery, potentially harmful medications or drugs to solve their hair and scalp problems.

Check out the clean surface area and my hair follicles. The oil puddles are gone and my scalp is deeply cleansed now. :)

Oh and I super love the highly raved about ‘ionic’ brush that Boey used to curl my hair at the end of the treatment. She makes it look so easy and the curls are beautiful! DRx sells this between $250-280 depending on the size of the brush.

My hair is super thick and long and she managed to curl my hair within 10mins. O.o!! Others usually take 20-30mins! I REALLY NEED TO GET IT!! My hair was so voluminous and gorgeous!!

Can’t wait to try them out!

Last but not least, I may have a lot of hair now (thanks for pregnancy) but it won’t always be this way. I am starting to lose hair at my hairline already. Remember, prevention is always better than cure :)
