Ma Guang Hair diagnosis

I went to ask about the treatments of hair loss at a Ma Guang clinic in my area. And here is the information gleaned from my visit:

a) The consultation fee is $12 for the first time, subsequent visit at $8 each time.

b) The physician believes my hair loss is due to oily scalp as my scalp from her examination is very oily. She recommended some chinese medication herbs to be mixed with water to be taken twice everyday after meal.

Such medicine will cost $7 per day, means to say a week course of medication will be around $50 and for a month's supply, it will be $200 approximately.
This is comparable ($32 more expensive) to the H4H capsules sold by Eu Yan Sang in terms of price: $168 for a month's worth.
I also know Ocean Health has some vitamin pills concentrated in Vit B, He Shou Wu, Biotin to treat hair loss and one bottle containing 60 capsules, one capsule to be taken daily sells at around $28.
Admittedly, as what the physcian has suspected, my diet is not very good, eating very little vegetable and more on meat. But just take a look at what the foodstalls are selling and I can tell you it is harder to consume good and nutritional food outside easily!

Ba Wang Shampoo

I have to share with readers that the Ba Wang Hair Strengthening shampoo which I have shared last week works quite great!
The shampoo throughly cleanses my scalp and there is not much itchiness of my scalp after a week use.
But I have to inform you that there is actually another shampoo from Bawang which is tailored to cure hair loss. It comes with anti hair loss conditioner and is sold in a twin pack.
NTUC is now having a promotion offer, selling the twin pack at $20.90. a $2 discount. I do not know whether it applies to all stores, but at least to the store in my neighbourhood.

Black Sesame

Try to drink more black sesame soups if you love these as these will promote good hair health.

NTUC sells 5 black sesame soup powders (5 satchets) for only $2.55. These are quite nutritious, yummy and are a boost for your hair.

You could try drinking these for 2 to 3 times per week, this will be good for your hair.

H4H Hair Formula Capsules

H4H Hair Formula Capsules are products from Eu Yan Sang for hair health.
They come in bottles of 60, sold at a price of $84. The dosage is 2 times per day, 2 pills each time. It means that one bottle can last about 2 weeks and one month's supply will be about $168.
The capsules work by targeting the inner body problems which cause unhealthy hair problems. Is it expensive a product? It may not be if it works for one, but for me, I thought it is quite expensive.

Bawang Hair-strengthening Shampoo

Readers to my website should have known by now that I have just bought a shampoo called Pregaine.
I have been using it for one week now and so far the results are quite okay: I experienced the less oily scalp which the manufacturers have claimed.

But, I would want something that not only cleanses my scalp, I want something that could simulate hair growth too.
This is where I train my eyes to a product which has been promoted quite recently in Singapore. Starring Jackie Chan, no I mean endorsed by Jackie Chan, this shampoo called Bawang Shampoo, is a all Chinese herbal shampoo which contains ginseng, said to simulate hair growth, by the sales woman but only for the hair strengthening type.

I bought the 400 ml type today for $7.80 only at a store which sells things cheaply, and I used it during shampooing when bathing.
It is just like normal shampoo.. except it is brown in colour. However on rinsing, the fluid turns white, just like normal shampoo.
I checked the ingredients in the shampoo and was surprised and glad it does not contain the usual sodium laurate sulphate, which some said, is harsh to the scalp. Instead, it contains polyocyethylene laurate sulphate and Ammonium laurate sulphate.. which may be gentler in my belief.
I am now trying to use an all natural approach: scalp massage in the morning, visit Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment once in 3 or 4 weeks, use Bawang and eat lots of vitamin and avoid oily diet.

My Progress

Dear Readers,
My hair is getting thinner and thinner everyday!
I have first noticed my hair loss problems in July 2006 and have consulted top dermatogists and doctors, spent a fortune BUT none of them believe I am balding! They have said I still have lots of hair at that time! But if they were to see the state of my hair now, they would retract their statements most likely!
It is sad to notice my hair getting finer and thinner by the day, the balding patches getting more and more. I have done so many things all these two year: adjusting my diet, exploring all kinds of shampoos, lotions, treatments, but none work!
Reading this, if you suffer from hair loss as I did, you may be disappointed! Even more disappointed will be those who have spent even more money at some treatment centres which are just wanting your money and do nothing to improve your scalp.
Whenever I wake up, dozens of hair were found strewn around my pillows, my floor, totalling 30+! Whenever I wash my hair, 20 to 30 hairs are found at the sink! Whenever I shampoo or comb my hair, I would have to bear with the feeling of really getting down to the 'bare essentials' of my hair!
I should not have done the stupid laser therapy! This is side effect, of the laser therapy! Last time, my hair is so thick and bushy that it is so unbelievable that I am balding now.
I don't know, maybe I am suffering from some insidious diseases that is wrecking havoc inside my body, causing massive hairfall by the day....
According to traditional chinese medicine, kidney problems may be associated with hair fall problems.
I may want to explore traditional chinese medicine, this is the last frontier that I have not explored to date. I know of regaine, propecia, but the thought of having to use them for LIFE is worrying for me, as I do not have the money to afford them.
My routine as of now is:
1) Scalp massage in the morning, if I have the time
2) Use Pregaine shampoo to shampoo the hair
3) Use Hair Tonic recommended by Bee Choo after washing and drying the hair
I am also going to Bee Choo Hair Centre to get rid of all those impurities that block my scalp pores.
I know I am not the only one in Singapore losing my crowning glory, there are many who are like me losing their hair by the day.
Why are more and more Singaporeans losing hair? Is it due to the food we eat, or the stress we are facing?
My principle is I will battle hair loss till I lose my last strand of hair! On second thought, I will cherish whatever I have, my health and the simple pleasures of life, for there are others who are more unfortunated than people with hair losses: think of people battling with cancer and other more serious illness, and we shall be glad that ours are not as life-threatening though hair loss does still make one socially conscious.
Haiz, what to do? :( As everyone will lose their hair one day when getting old, let us treat ourselves as the pioneers in this area ba, though we definitely do not want to be!

Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment

I went to Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment recently to treat my hair problems, I have been going there quite frequently to cure my hair loss problems.

I was recommended to Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment by many netizens when I did an online search for a herbal treatment centre which provides good treatments at a most affordable and reasonable price.

I was lucky for I found Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment! I did not choose other more popular Herbal Hair Treatment Centres that were so aggressively featured on the newspapers, were known for their hard-sell tactics to 'force' customers to sign packages as well as noted for a number of complaints for ineffective treatments by their customers,after spending more than $10,000.

Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment uses top quality herbs for the herbal treatments and whats more, the prices are the cheapest I ever come across: $23 for my hair treatment at its Pasir Ris outlet, treatment of hair of other length and at other Bee Choo branches varies accordingly. The treatment lasts for about 1.5 hours and the results are promising.

It is really a miracle as the lady boss, Bee Choo started treating hair problems for her friends at her house in Pasir Ris and then soon, words spread by mouth, and more and more friends of friends started to turn up at her house. To cope with the ever-increasing customer demand, Bee Choo has to open up an outlet in Ang Mo Kio and recently in Clementi and before Chinese New Year next year, there would be an outlet in Bedok.

I normally come on weekday nights if I need to treat my hair for on weekends, there would be so many customers (which attest to the growing business of Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment). Even on an average weekday night, customers still stream in, and this is really really incredible for a business to expand so rapidly with no advertising but via word of mouth. This must only be due to one thing: the hair treatment works!

What impresses me most is the lady boss, Bee Choo herself. On days when I happen to meet her at one of the branches, I count myself lucky for Bee Choo is a busy lady. Despites her busy schedule, she does not hesitate to offer me advice, check for my scalp health whenever I seek her advice. She is very humble and endearing to her customers, with no sense of air and I could see that her business thrive due to her genuine concern for others' hair problems and her keen willingness to share with others hair health tips.

Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment was also featured on Channel U TV show on value-for-money shops just a few months ago.

If you are losing sleep due to losing hair and do not want to lose money in this economic gloomy period, trying out other hair treatment products of centres which do not prove effective, try Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment, there is no package that you need to sign up for. Just come and do one session whenever you are free within Bee Choo Herbal Hair Treatment working hours.
