Beauty Review: Addressing My Scalp Troubles With Yun Nam Hair Care


I’ve been enjoying my wedding planning status to the fullest with innumerable photoshoots for my Secret Garden Fairytale themed nuptials.

Since the photos are the most significant memorabilia of the wedding which are usually displayed for a lifetime AND probably shown to future generations, I need to make sure that they’re perfect! 😀

So I’ve been trying to keep myself in a tip-top condition from head to toe for the past three months with a healthy diet, nail treatments and hair dye jobs – which is of course not the best for my scalp.

Yup, I’ve had two dye jobs within two months. Oh, how my poor mane and scalp have suffered for the sake of art and vanity.

The condition is now utterly deplorable with dry skin flaking off the scalp after every hair wash. Eek!

Since I’ve another wedding photoshoot coming up, I need to make sure I revert hair-tastrophe back to hair-bulous!

And so I visited the celebrated hair treatment expert, Yun Nam Hair Care. 🙂

Read on to find out if Yun Nam was able to restore my scalp to its former regal state! I visited one of Yun Nam’s biggest branches at Plaza Singapura. It is located conveniently beside the entrance to the carpark on the second floor.

The salon interior eminates a vibrant positive energy as their signature orange hue bursts from every corner. 😀

Before we began, I was introduced to Michelle, the branch manager of Yun Nam Hair Care who walked me through the entire scalp treatment process with drawings and visuals.

I was also asked to fill in a hair loss analysis form on which I had to declare any medical problems.

And now it’s time to extract the culprits of my unhealthy scalp.

I receive a detailed microscopic analysis of my scalp to diagnose its current problems. Not a good sight. See the white stuff around the roots? Those are dandruff.

Here’s how it looks with the naked eye.

Saw the flakes?

Michelle concluded that the dandruff problem is still in its early stages so she suggested a deep cleansing routine to detox the scalp of dandruff and crud. It also restores the health of the scalp and prevent hair loss problems.

Now let’s get started!

But first, let me take a snack break, courtesy of Yun Nam Hair Care! 😛

This is Zoe who took over from Michelle for the first part of my treatment.

Zoe explained that to allow the treatment and herbs to penetrate into the scalp and hair better, she’ll have to give my hair a light wash to remove excess oil and dirt.

Here we go!

She also added a specially formulated herbal lotion that is fortified with nutrients to nourish and revitalise the hair.

Here’s the shampoo and conditioner that Zoe used on my hair.

The products are infused with natural herbs to replenish lost nutrients in hair and revive their lustre.

Herbalogy Ginseng Shampoo

Their conditioner also contains anti-oxidants to protect the hair from environmental damage.

At this point, I thought I smelled like a huge Ginseng root as the shampoo was mainly made up of Ginseng extracts. Don’t get me wrong. It’s definitely not a bad thing. In fact, the aroma of Ginseng was very indulging and made me feel absolutely relaxed.

Later, Zoe rinsed the bubbles away to make way for the ultimate herbal treatment to unclog and repair damaged hair follicles, stimulate new hair growth and eradicate the dandruff once and for all!

Here’s my herbal treatment that’s enriched with premium chinese herbs and their trademark dandruff paste for a thorough cleansing routine.

Now Zoe spreads the cocktail of goodness on my scalp. And guess what? I went from smelling like Ginseng to a bowl of black sesame paste. In case you’re wondering, black sesame paste is a popular Chinese dessert. Yummeh!

Then Zoe wrapped my hair with a plastic shower cap and placed a steamer hood over it to seal in the nutrients.

After 30 minutes, Michelle returned to finish the second half of my treatment.

She rubbed my scalp lightly to reveal the white flakes that had been lurking in the roots. According to her, the colouring jobs must have dried my scalp and induced dandruff. Eek!

Save me, Michelle!

My Scalp Heroine, Michelle came to by rescue with a bottle of nutritional herbal lotion and applied the “dandruff antidote” on my head before washing the hair with more ginseng shampoo. Woo hoo!

Michelle finished the treatment by applying a protein lotion to strengthen the strands and a hair tonic with Ginseng essence to eliminate itchiness, dandruff and to balance pH in hair naturally. This is important as our hair and scalp oil, sebum, has a pH balance of between 4.5 and 5.5. This natural hair acidity prevents fungi and bacteria in the hair and scalp, and keeps the cuticle closed and healthy.

The tonic produced a cooling sensation that was absolutely rejuvenating.

Then Michelle cleansed my hair a final time before and blow drying it.

And we’re done!

Here’s the close-up! The results were astonishing!

For better results, I’ll probably need another 5 to 10 treatments to soothe the scalp further and prevent the dandruff from returning. Well, I’ll probably come back for more treatments next month.

Michelle gave me a travel-sized pack to help me maintain the condition. How nice!

Thank you, Michelle!

Michelle and me.

Can’t forget Zoe too!

Zoe and me.

Subjecting my scalp to countless chemical treatments is the worst way to provoke my scalp. I don’t think I’ll be doing it again.

I’m just happy that I discovered Yun Nam’s services and products in the nick of time. No more harsh and moisture-stripping hair products! Their hair care line is made of up of a natural blend of herbs and nutrients that are extremely invigorating and nourishing for the scalp.

Do you know Yun Nam also have herbal hair dyes that can color and treat your hair at the same time? What an ironic pair, eh? While I was undergoing my hair treatment, I noticed many middle-aged and elderly folks getting their hair dyed with Yun Nam’s colouring hair series. Most of them have a glowy healthy crown!

Now you know where to visit for wholesome dye jobs! 😀

Meanwhile, 4 Honeyz crowns for their impeccable service and healthful products!

Two weeks later…

My hair is still free of dandruff! Yay!
