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:


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.


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.


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.

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.


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.


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.

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.

I am quite amazed that this is one of the few sunscreen that I have tried that doesnt leave a very greasy-after feel. It blends quite nicely from white to nothing on the skin but it will be a little reflective (you may look pale in photos). 

Because it is quite lightweight, it works well as a base for makeup and it feels almost like nothing after application unless its humid then you might feel that layer that sunscreen always leave on the skin.

I love that it has high sun protection coverage and free of paraben and alcohol but its ingredients do bug me a little. This sunscreen consists of both physical and chemical filters, personally, I try to stick to physical (ie  minerals) or natural filters (eg coconut oil) because chemical filters may lead to some health concerns. I wrote about synthetic sunscreens here

However, that being said, it boils down to personal preference. I use this when I am going out for a short while and I will normally wash it off as soon as I get back because its sun protection coverage is too good to ignore and it does feel nice on the skin when it isn't overly humid.

To be honest, I am not an eye product user yet... I know I should start caring for the areas around my eyes because it's the area where aging starts first! I have used an eye roller pen before but this one is a little unique. It has a dispensing roller-ball twist tip to prevent contamination and I find that a smart thing to consider especially for an eye product. 

Personally, I keep this in the fridge and use them when I need a quick wake-me-up! I have pretty bad dark circles and I do have chronic eye bags. Having tried others before, I know that the metal roller tip will definitely help to reduce some puffiness under the eye so it is no surprise when my puffiness were reduced after using this.

I have been very skeptical about eye product that claims to reduce the appearance of dark circles because most of the time, it works due to an ingredient that is reflective. Hence, creating the appearance of lighter dark circles because lights bounces off the reflective particles. I am glad to say that this product doesnt have any reflective ingredients (to the best of my knowledge) and relies solely on natural ingredients to help reduce the appearance of dark circle. It does work a little but it's not 100% which is good enough for me, I use makeup for perfection!
