Product Rating: 9.5/10
To be honest, I was only using this product for my cuticles, legs (after shaving) and my elbows. But I find this product totally lovely. It absorbs fast and well into the skin, leaving the areas smooth and soft. I did notice that this product works perfectly for Singapore's climate, if you are in other areas (like in Europe or colder drier climates), this is not rich enough.



I love love love that it is multi-functional and contains over 90% natural ingredients which is good, especially when it can also be used to relieve chapped lips.

It comes in a pretty tube packing which makes it hygienic and easy to use, and can be placed standing upright to get right down to the last bit of cream.

The only drawback I can think of is the cost for 30ml of product which can last between a period of 1 month to probably 6 (depends on your usage frequency), it can be rather pricey.

The Different Types of Hair Related Trouble


Luxe Herbal seeks to treat all kinds of hair troubles from:
 Hair loss due to natural condition, genetics, stress, abnormal immune disorder;
Oily or Acne-prone Scalp;
Flaking Scalp (Dandruff); and
Excessive White Hairs.

Personally, I have quite an oily scalp with dry ends due to the climate in Singapore and the simple fact that I have quite a lot of hair... it traps heat and makes it hard to wash thoroughly. Oh! And I have quite a bit of abnormal white hair growth for my age too...

The Different Types of Treatment Used

It's no secret that age, genes, micro-organisms and stress are the drivers of hair related issues and that is why Luxe Herbal's treatments caters to treat them through these steps:

HIGH FREQUENCY THERAPY


Using high-frequency therapy to detoxify the scalp and kill off any micro-organisms (germs/bacteria) and aid in cell regeneration, this step is gentle and safe.


SCALP MASSAGE

Relax and forget about your stress and worries. Indulge in the ten finger acupressure massage by trained therapists that enhances blood circulation for your scalp. This treatment will help improve your overall health at the same time.



INTENSE SCALP MASSAGE

Taking a step further, trained therapists also use ancient Ayurvedic techniques of scalp massage to help you relax, and improve blood circulation to the scalp that provide hair roots with nourishment. This is vital for hair growth in addition to stimulating blood flow to the scalp. The scalp massage is soothing and helps prevent headaches as well as benefit sleep patterns. Studies have shown that scalp massage is beneficial to the relief of headache and benefit those who suffer from insomnia.

HERBAL MASK TREATMENT
Luxe Herbal offers their very own formulated recipe specially concocted with premium Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs.


These herbs are slowly and carefully brewed for two hours to allow thorough extraction of essence and nutrients. The treatment masks are then immediately packed into individual sachets to ensure freshness and avoid contamination. Upon customer’s arrival, the herbal mask is heated up to further prevent contamination.
It also facilitates the penetration of the herbal essence into the scalp and helps stimulate healthier hair roots.

OXI-WASH TREATMENT

First of its kind in Asia, Luxe Herbal brought in the state-of-the art technology from Korea, using oxygen to give the dead and tired pores a new life. Oxygen is an ideal element to cleanse the scalp and it is proven to clean up to 98%, of the scalp. With a clean scalp, treatment has proven to be five times more effective compared to a normal hair wash. During the washing process, oxygen is being directed into the scalp using water technology which locks the oxygen in, enabling the scalp to absorb the oxygen which is needed for hair growth.

INFRA HEAT THERAPY



Using infra heat therapy to enhance the absorption of our hair treatment into the scalp, this ensures maximum effectiveness. Instead of using hair dryer which is damaging to the scalp and hair, infra heat therapy is used to dry the hair while allowing nutrients to penetrate into the scalp.

* Helps to improve hair ends and protect them

I No Longer...


This quote by Meryl Streep phrased the conclusion I have come to derive by this period perfectly. Things haven't been smooth since the later part of 2013 and for most of 2014 despite the various "high" points during these few months.

I have come to understand that I should live my life more for myself than for others. Don't take my words wrongly, like Meryl, I have come to see that it's pointless to make decisions and choices that benefit someone who only cares for themselves. I have done that a lot for most of my life and it took me a whole lot of stress, sadness and anger to understand certain types of people better.

I bear them no resentment. I merely reach this enlightenment.

Having said that, traveling these few weeks have also revealed the balance to the negativity that I have experienced.  In a way, I would like to think that it's the mysterious working of the world to let me know that the good still exist.  I have been blessed to have people on my life, looking out for me and placing my needs above theirs and giving unconditionally to me.

Thank you.
