Top solutions to hair loss and scalp issues
#1 Thinning hair
Specially formulated for women facing seasonal, temporary and sporadic hair loss and thinning, the FEM Fortify range helps to boost scalp health and fight hair fall. At the same time, it stimulates micro-circulation for healthy hair growth. One top pick we’ve tried and loved is the FEM Fortify Shampoo, a gentle hair and scalp cleanser containing rice stem cells, walnut extract and the Patent 5 Complex: a unique and proprietary blend of five natural botanicals. Double cleanse with the ADV Nutrition Shampoo before using the FEM Fortify Conditioner, then finish off with the FEM Fortify Tonic, a powerful treatment that nourishes and strengthens the roots.
#2 Oily scalp
Living in Singapore means dealing with a hot and humid climate all year round. Over time, this can cause excess sebum to build up in the hair follicles, resulting in pesky dandruff and a greasy scalp. The ADV Purify range from PHS HAIRSCIENCE is formulated for these concerns. For example, the ADV Purify Shampoo contains rice stem cells, salicylic acid and ribwort plantain extract to gently cleanse the scalp and remove dandruff, while preventing potential inflammation and irritation. Double cleanse with the ADV Nutrition Shampoo; this power duo helps to cleanse and purify the scalp without stripping it of its natural protective oils. Another best-seller is the ADV Elixir, a multi-purpose scalp primer that exfoliates and rebalances all scalp types.
#3 Sensitive scalp
Stress and pollution are common causes of itchy scalp and hyper-sensitivity. Try the ADV Soothe range, which aims to cleanse and soothe sensitive scalps. Start with a double cleanse using the ADV Nutrition Shampoo and ADV Soothe Shampoo, before moisturising with the ADV Nutrition Conditioner. Follow up with the ADV Soothe Calming Gel, a topical gel that immediately treats and calms irritation symptoms such as redness, tightness and itch. The gentle formula consists of chameleon plant to detoxify and green tea leaf extract to prevent oxidative stress. There’s also niacinamide, which forms a protective barrier and protects the scalp against potential aggressors like UV rays.
#4 Dry and damaged hair
Chemical treatments and excessive hair colouring can result in dull and brittle hair. However, you can boost your hair health with the ADV Hydrate range, which adds much-needed moisture and smoothens the cuticle layer. You’ll find a fab collection of hydrating hair products, including the ultra-nourishing ADV Hydrate Argan Oil Treatment Mask, which contains pure argan oil and lactic acid to smoothen hair strands and prevent breakage. Complete the regime with the ADV Hydrate Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner for a nourishing treat.
