Here are 6 Korean hair care tips for healthy and shiny hair.


1. Say no to 2-in-1 shampoo

One very important point to note in Korean hair care is that you need to have 2 separate regimes for your scalp and hair. A 2-in-1 shampoo simply does not work. You need a shampoo to clean our scalp and hair, and a separate conditioner to condition only the hair strands, but not the scalp. Using a 2-in-1 shampoo may save you lots of time, but it will not be good for your scalp health in the long run due to product build up on your scalp. Therefore, it is wiser to get a shampoo and a conditioner separately.


2. Use a hair mask regularly

In Korean beauty, there is a mask for everything, and that includes our hair. Use a hair mask once a week to keep our hair healthy with its powerful dosage of treatment ingredients.


3. Spray on a hair essence

Most Korean girls will have both a skincare essence and a hair essence. Unlike leave-in conditioner or hair serum, hair essence is usually sold in bottles that dispense lightweight, watery mist, and is used to keep our hair moisturised without weighing it down. There are different formulas for different hair types and can work like magic when you spray on your lifeless hair mid-day. 


4. Protect your hair with heat protectants

Heat from the styling tools can damage your hair and it is important to give them a layer a protection before subjecting them to high temperatures. Apply some heat protectants on your crowning glory before blow drying or using a curling/straightening iron, to keep your hair healthy and shiny in the long run.


5. Scalp massage

A pampering scalp massage not just alleviates stress, but it is also beneficial for our scalp and hair health. It increases blood circulation to our hair follicles and encourages hair growth. But do note that precaution should be taken to avoid pulling out or tugging on our hair, which may cause unnecessary hair breakage.


6. Go for scalp treatments

There are many different types of scalp treatments that can target different scalp conditions that may affect your hair health. The most common type of scalp treatments is one that helps to clarify your scalp to clear clogged hair follicles, which is one of the common reasons that causes hair thinning.

Testimonials from satisfied customers

Isabella Chua, 33 years old, Finance Advisor. Hair Thinning and Sensitive Scalp.


"Being a financial advisor, I have to work odd hours to cater to my various clients' schedules and therefore, it is common for me to work long hours and even over the weekends and holidays. All the stress, together with the lack of rest and an unbalanced diet, I noticed that my hair started to thin. I went for a consultation at Beijing 101 and the consultant determined that I have a sensitive scalp that causes hair thinning and since then, I have been going for regular treatments. Thank you, Beijing 101 for highlighting my issues and helping me to improve my hair condition.”


Keith Kwan, 29 years old, Exhibition Executive. Dandruff


"My work requires me to be running about outdoors most of the time and I don't really have time to look after my hair due to my busy schedule. On top of all the work stress and late nights, I noticed that my dandruff condition was worsening. I thought that it was about time for me to seek expert advice on it and went to Beijing 101 for a consultation. I was given a thorough analysis before starting on my treatment and there were visible improvements in my scalp condition just after a few sessions. Now, I have a healthier scalp that is free from dandruff. Thank you, Beijing 101 for the effective treatment results and making me confident once again!”
