YUN NAM HAIR CARE REVIEW [part 1]

Recently I noticed that my hair line has been receding like a coastal region. Of course I'm not as young as I used to be and ought to see this coming at some point of time. Being a stressed up Singaporean like every other, I also sleep late and eat out a lot. So that's probably why I'm facing this brutal hair loss crisis, so I decided to try out Yun Nam Hair Care.

I'm guessing 9 out of 10 readers skipped the paragraph above. So why Yun Nam Hair Care? I supposed they have been around for the longest period of time, so they should be the most reliable.


Anyway I arrived at the Plaza Singapura outlet at Level 2 (between the toilet and carpark entrance) feeling the jitters. Due to my shy nature (as if), I was a bit paisey when I went into the care centre, but the staff there were all so cheerful and friendly. Every staff that is within an arm's length smiles, nods or greets you. Top notch service, I say.

I visited on the first day of reopening after renovation, everything was super new. The ambience was very relaxing.


The main hall looks like a salon and you get to choose your favourite "fengshui" seat.


If you are the shy type, there are also private rooms with sliding doors.

I was brought to one of the Consultation Room and my consultant, Michelle, did a scan on my scalp...



I was a bit shocked by the results..



Here's a magnified view of my disgusting scalp. So basically, I have oily scalp and those white patches are sorta like hardened oil patches and clogged pores and I'm due to go bald in 5-10 years. GG


Michelle giving me an overview of my tragic hair problems and a treatment plan. 


I was given some tea and snacks to stop me from crying. Just kidding, it's for all visitors.


So what we are going to do today is Deep Cleansing of the scalp.



With the help of these secret herbal paste that looks like 芝麻糊 (sesame dessert) but smells like ginseng. Also from my research, I noticed that Yun Nam Hair Care, unlike its competitors, uses herbal paste instead of clear liquid/chemical.


After applying the paste, my hair was put to steam (like making kueh).


Ok let's look at the from the Deep Cleansing. The top image shows "before" and the bottom image shows "after".


From one session, we cleared out most of the oil patches cemented onto my scalp and cleared the oil and old sebum around the hair roots. Shiok!


I mean.. everyone has a different hair problem (Male Pattern Hair Loss, Female Pattern Hair Loss, Premature Hair Loss, Post-natal Hair Loss, Hereditary Hair Loss, Ring-shaped Hair Loss, Mediterranean Hair Loss, Patch Baldness, Grey hair, Dandruff, Oily Scalp, Sensitive Scalp, Scalp Infection, Hair Loss due to Chronic Illnesses.. etc) and early treatment is always easier.

Old Airport Road Lor Mee (Tampines)


Old Airport Road Lor Mee Prawn Mee
旧机场卤面虾面

Everyday Come Coffee Shop 天天來
BLK 477 Tampines Street 44

Opening hours: 10am - 3pm

According to my dad, the store was doing so-so at Old Airport Road. It seems to be extremely popular here in Tampines; super long queues, huge orders, sell-outs by noon..


Lor Mee 卤面
$3 (no fish)
$4 
$5
Very generous serving of ingredients with tasty gravy. Well marinated egg, thick slices of fish and ngor hiang. Some foodies may find the gravy not garlic-y enough, but I think it's perfect. Hints of salted fish at the right amount of thickness.


Prawn Noodles 虾面
$4/$5 (软骨虾面)
$5 (大虾面)
Not impressed by the very mediocre prawn noodles. Let's just stick with Lor Mee.
