Fresh Start! Build a Daily Scalp Care Routine for Beautiful Hair
Think back of the times when you have had good hair days. Is that a result of chance or a consistent effort to love on your hair? Everyday, our scalp has to endure through a series of suffering from the temperature, humidity, and pollution. If you would like everyday to be a good hair day, then it is time to commit to a scalp care routine in your life.
We break down how this looks like:
Step 1: Shampoo
Should you wash your hair everyday? We say yes and you can read here to find out why.
Daily shampooing is important, especially when you have an itchy scalp, as it cleans away all the sebum buildup and impurities (sweat, dirt, grime) on your scalp. We also encourage double cleansing for a healthy scalp and promote good hair growth.
Start your hair cleansing routine with ADV Nutrition Shampoo that deep-cleanses the scalp to unclog hair follicles without over-stripping it of the natural hair oils. Continue with FEM Fortify Shampoo after rinsing for a power, non-invasive double cleanse and to help prevent hair loss and thinning.

Step 2: Moisturise
Do. Not. Skip. This. Step.
Regardless of your hair type, it is a must to condition your hair after shampooing to retain the moisture in your hair and make it soft and luscious. Do not over-condition your hair though. Apply enough through the length of your hair strands to the tips. Avoid the scalp as it will cause your scalp to be oily faster — you really do not want that.
After applying the conditioner, leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing it off. We recommend using our ADV Nutrition Conditioner that contains botanical stem cells to help reconstruct ruffled hair cuticles — leaving your hair smooth, tangle-free, shiny, and healthy! Alternatively, FEM Fortify Conditioner is an excellent hydrator that strengthens strands and helps to prevent hair breakage and hair fall.
Again, different hair types require different types of conditioners so be sure to choose the right one for your hair type. You can take a look at the different types of conditioners we carry here.
Step 3: Nourish
Finish off the regime with a hair tonic to nourish your hair. Tonics deliver nutrients to the scalp for lasting benefits and tackle concerns such as hair loss, itchy scalp, dandruff, oily or sensitive scalp.
We recommend our FEM Fortify Tonic that provides essential nutrients to your scalp for resistance and balance. It Is a powerful treatment tonic that delivers vital nutrients to nourish and strengthen hair roots, thus reducing hair fall.
Step 4: Protect
If you must use the blow-dryer or hair straightener/curler on your mane, it is very important that you apply a coat of heat protectant prior to protect your hair from serious heat damage. The high heat from these hair styling products can break the keratin bonds that hold your hair strands together resulting in frizzy, dried out, and dull-looking hair. You most certainly do not want that.
Step 5: Drying
It has become an intuitive habit for most of us to dry our hair by rubbing our hair vigorously with the towel after each shower. But did you know that such friction can cause your hair strands to break and your hair to turn frizzy?
The proper way to dry your hair is to pat it dry with the towel. Air dry your hair as much as possible and if you really need to blow dry, refer to Step 4.
On a weekly basis, take time to indulge and pamper your hair and scalp by adding a couple of steps:
Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliation helps to remove toxins build-up and impurities that clogs the pore. It relieves itchy scalps and is an effective scalp treatment in Singapore that you can do at home once a week.
PHS HAIRSCIENCE ADV Elixir is a powerful scalp primer that helps to enhance the scalp’s ability to absorb vital nutrients from subsequent scalp care products. Developed with certified trichologists and containing 70% concentration of active ingredients, this potent serum restores scalp health to support healthy growth for beautiful, luscious locks.
Step 2: Nourish
Nourish your hair with hair masks for a supercharge conditioning efforts that deeply moisturises from within to give you fresh-out-from-salon hair. Hair masks are typically loaded with proteins and nutrients that will make your hair stronger, glossier, and healthier!
We recommend our ADV Smooth Hair Mask that can turn frizzy and unruly hair into soft, silky locks. It nourishes and strengthens hair cuticles to improve hair texture and seals the hair cuticle with a lightweight, protective barrier that helps the hair to remain frizz and tangle-free.
The last step to your hair care routine — go for a scalp treatment at least once a month. An exfoliating scalp treatment can unclog follicles, stimulate circulation for hair growth and calm scalp issues like itchy scalp, dandruff, hair fall, and hair thinning.
