Korean hair care is underrated, and works as well as their skin care counterpart.
Ever since the Hallyu wave hit, most people have heard of beauty secrets such as the Korean glass skin trend and 10-step K-Beauty skincare routine. But did you know that Korean hair care regimes exist too?
Oily, itchy and dandruff-prone scalp? You need to visit your hairstylist.
The truth is, home hair care won’t be effective for most people in Singapore. In this humid climate, oily hair, itchy scalp, dandruff flakes and hair loss are most popular hair concerns faced. While there are some tips that hairstylists swear by to prevent them, these chronic hair problems are ones that the best shampoos and DIY remedies cannot fix overnight.
Like how you would go to a doctor to cure your fever, what you need to do to solve your hair concerns is to go to the hair salon for a personalised hair and scalp treatment that caters to your hair’s needs.

How the 3-Step Chanamu Scalp Treatment Works - Cleanse, Wash and Nourish
Identify existing problems with a hair and scalp diagnosis
The most effective way to solve a hair issue is to get to the root of the problem. The 3-step Chanamu scalp treatment begins with a scalp diagnosis that helps you identify existing problems on your scalp, such as clogged hair follicles by sebum, pimples, oily scalp and dry scalp.
Your hairstylist will also analyze the problems and discuss the steps to be taken to solve them during the Korean scalp treatment. If your scalp is in bad shape, you may also need to do some post-salon hair care at home.
Discuss hair and scalp health condition and recommend solutions
By pinpointing out your scalp concerns, it already helps you skip the trial and error process when you go through multiple products in search for the right one, which helps you solve scalp problems faster.
It is important to use products meant for your specific hair type, as using the wrong products for your hair and scalp type is one of the main causes of a dry and flaky scalp. You may choose to use a different shampoo for hair and scalp.
However, you should stick to a shampoo if it works for you. While it is believed that changing shampoos help to reduce build-up, your scalp can become itchy, red and irritated with some dandruff, which are all symptoms of scalp dermatitis.
1. Cleanse - A fresh base will allow better absorption which increases the effectiveness of the scalp treatment.
Afterwards, we move onto prepping our scalps for the cleansing, which will relieve the dry scalp’s flakey and dandruff problems.
2. Wash - Water acupuncture reduces scalp dryness and sensitivity by clearing out waste accumulated in hair follicles.
Did you know that sensitive scalp can be caused by clogged hair follicles too? When you use hair styling products daily, some of the residue can remain on your scalp.
The ‘Aqua Punch’ machine uses a high water pressure rhythm to restore your scalp to its original state through water acupuncture. It has 5 sensitivity settings; levels 1-2 for sensitive scalp and 3-4 for normal scalp. This ensures that your scalp will not be irritated by water pulses.
Get rid of dandruff and flakes by using water acupuncture.
By getting rid of the dirt, sebum and waste accumulated in the hair follicles, your scalp becomes healthier and can support your hair to get healthy regrowth.
Examine the scalp after for a visible scalp transformation.
The scalp treatment helps to reduce scalp redness and return good health to the hair follicles. Look at the obvious results!
3. Nourish - Enrich the scalp with multivitamins to soothe the scalp.
End off the scalp treatment by pampering your scalp with some much needed multivitamins to soothe scalp redness.
Korean beauty is not an overnight remedy for hair and scalp problems.
Korean beauty is a philosophy that extends throughout all aspects of personal care, which is why there is a concept of ‘layering’ products for a well-rounded approach.
If you face these hair concerns persistently, do get them treated when possible, as some symptoms such as hair loss can be permanent and irreversible.
