Scalp and hair treatment at Organic Hair Professional

It's been 6 months since I did my last hair treatment, and I tried the scalp and hair treatment at Organic Hair Professional. 

Haha.. No photos for this post as I forgot to take photos lol..

The scalp treatment is really quite comfortable and I think it's quite worth the money. The hairdresser will first use the Pear Wood Exfoliating Gel to exfoliate the dead skin cells, dandruff etc. on the scalp. I thought this is quite a good product as I felt my scalp quite clean after using it. 

Next, the hairdresser will use the scalp care shampoo to shampoo my hair with some massage on the scalp. Scalp felt cool and refreshing and I felt so comfortable with the scalp massage. After that, the hairdresser will rinse off the shampoo on my hair.

Third step, the hairdresser will spray oxygen and hair tonic onto my scalp with some more scalp massage. I enjoyed the scalp massage, it's so comfortable. Then, I will have to wait for 15 mins before washing it off. While waiting, the hairdresser gave me a neck and shoulder massage which was again, so comfortable.

Last step of the scalp treatment is applying this hair tonic onto the scalp. I have bought this hair tonic before, it is very expensive but it didn't help much with my hair thinning problem.

For the hair treatment, the hairdresser will first apply protein cream on my hair and use the nanomist machine to spray some distilled water mist on my hair to give my hair moisture. Then, I will have to wait for around 15 mins before rinsing.

After blowing dry my hair, the treatment is done! The scalp and hair treatment took me 1.5 hours. In my opinion, I love the scalp treatment much more than the hair treatment. I felt my scalp cleaner and more refreshed after doing the scalp treatment, but I do not find my hair smoother or more moisturized after the hair treatment. Most importantly, the scalp treatment includes massages which makes me so comfortable!

For my hair length, I spent a total of $198 for the scalp treatment and the hair treatment. If both treatments were done separately, the scalp treatment cost $108 while the hair treatment cost $150.

If you have experienced any nice hair/scalp treatment at any salon, please let me know! I wanna try them out! Hopefully, I'm able to find a treatment that is really useful in solving my hair thinning problem.

Random thoughts

Saw a friend shared a good read on Facebook: working culture in NZ.
*Link from shortieandfatty.blogspot.sg

After reading it, I felt so sad about the working life in Singapore, especially when you have a 'slave driver' as your boss. It just make everyone's life so stress, so difficult, so busy and unhappy. I seriously do not understand why some bosses like to be such an a**. It's just a job, com'on. There're a thousand more important things in life than the mundane job.

I have always wondered if those bosses actually cared about the happiness of the employees. If they are nicer, friendlier and give more flexibility to the employees, it will make everyone's day brighter! Rigid, inflexibility, bosses who scold employees as if they are kids, and bosses who think "You are paid so I can load you with tons of work!" seriously turn me off.

Bosses tend to have the wrong mind set that if they scold or be strict, employees will then be more careful not to make mistakes, they will be fearful and do work more efficiently. That is totally wrong! I will put in more effort if I have an appreciative boss and will be more careful and ensure I do not make mistake if my boss is nice because I will feel guilty if I give him/her any trouble.

I am thrilled when I read "It is really OK to go home at 5pm4.45pm or even 4.30pm if you have finished your work". Going home at these timing is like impossible in Singapore??! And I love that the boss tell employees to go home and dun stay back in office. After working for 8 hours, we are definitely more prone to mistakes as the eyes and brain are already tired. It's inefficient and a waste of time staying in office to work!

After reading this article, I'm filled with envious. How I wish more Singapore companies can follow this working culture. But sadly, that's not the working culture I experienced and what I heard from my friends. Nonetheless, it still give me hope that such nice working environment exists (although I dunno if it exists in Singapore).

If anyone know of such work place in Singapore, please let me know.

Feel so depressed that tomorrow is only Wednesday :'(
