Topp Care Hair Solutions-Fixed Price Hair and Scalp Treatments Using High Quality Plant Extracts

Two things that might occur with aging are thinning hair and hair fall.  Even though a lot of people always tell me that I look like I am in my late 20s, the truth is I'm not.  I am an advocate of the fact that prevention is better than cure.  So when I got to know about Topp Care Hair Solutions (顶盛护发中心), the newest hair care centre in Tampines, which was officially opened on 15 October 2016, I was very excited to try out their various scalp treatments


Located at unit #01-1131 of Block 201D, Tampines Street 21, Topp Care offers a wide range of treatments specially created to address specific hair and scalp conditions.  The uniqueness of Topp Care’s treatments lies in the infusion of natural ingredients including high quality Western botanicals and selected medicinal herbs that aim to effectively prevent hair loss and oily scalp, both of which are common problems faced by today’s busy city dwellers when exposed to the local humid climate.

Personally, I felt that I suffered from oily scalp and my hair especially near the crown has thinned over the years. Hence I visited Topp Care on 9 Mar 2017 to see what kind of scalp treatment I could try to improve on my hair and scalp condition.

Upon stepping into Topp Care, I immediately felt a welcoming comfort as it exuded a relaxing ambience for customers looking for a good break while enjoying the treatments.

Treatments and Products
There are four signature treatments available at Topp Care:
   Healthy Scalp Treatment – Hair Loss Prevention
   Detoxdren Scalp Mask  - Oily & Inflamed Scalp
   Energising Scalp Mask - Hair Strengthening and Shine
   Hair Spa Treatment – Dry and Chemically Treated Hair

Administered by professionally qualified therapists, the steps in each treatment incorporate the use of products made of high quality natural ingredients with properties that promote hair growth and scalp health.  “Hair-friendly” Western botanicals like aloe vera, burdock, ginko and thyme form the key composition of the ampoules, masks, shampoos and conditioners.

Selected products can even be purchased for home use as an extension to the treatments to achieve a more holistic result.

To inject life to the hair, Topp Care also offers hair colouring as a value-added service for customers who desire a refreshed and vibrant look.  The colour range carries the most updated shades of black, brown and red.

Before any treatment is administered, the therapist will do a scalp and hair scan to analyse the current scalp condition.  

I was super excited yet nervous to find out my scalp condition. With the detailed analysis, I would be more aware of my scalp condition and use the right type of products to improve it.

The moment of truth had arrived.  The therapist analysed my scalp and told me that my scalp was oily and pretty clogged up.  Hair growth was poor as well.

Very sad right? Given my scalp condition, I was recommended the Healthy Scalp Treatment.  This treatment last for 35 mins and is suitable for all scalp conditions.  It helps to prevent hair loss and supports regenerative functions to promote hair growth.

The benefits of this treatment include gentle cleansing, eliminating bacterial and slowing down sebum productions.  According to the therapist, visible result can be seen in just one treatment while additional treatments are recommended to attain and maintain a desired healthy scalp.

My favourite part of the whole session was the head massages. It was therapeutic, as the therapist rubbed the serums and tonics into my scalp to let it absorb better.

Some of the main ingredients found in the products used during my treatment include:

Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Oil)
   Contains Vitamins to support strong and healthy hair
   Contains Vitamin E excellent for conditioning hair
    Isochrysis Galbana Extract (Mircoalgae)
   Prevents hair loss
    Strengthens hair follicles

After the treatment, I went for another scalp and hair scan.  Let's take a look at the result.

See how clean my scalp looks now!  Amazing results in just one treatment.  My scalp also looked less clogged up now... yippee!

My scalp feels more clean and fresh throughout the day, lasting up to the next day without washing! Even in the humid weather, my scalp was perfectly free from itch all day!

Transparent Fixed Pricing

I know many people are wondering if Topp Care therapists will push packages for their customers to sign up.  The good thing is they do not because not only does Topp Care care for the customers’ hair and scalp, it also cares for their wallets.  

Topp Care’s treatments are all fixed at an affordable rate.  Regardless of which treatment a customer chooses, the charge is $80 (inclusive of GST, excluding hair colouring which is charged according to hair’s length).

I realised how susceptible I was to pimple outbreak when I saw my own photo of my side profile.  I took that photo to show a before photo of my eyelashes before my eyelash extensions.  But horror of all horrors, I noticed there were pimples on my cheeks when normally they don't appear there and my skin looked super congested.  It could well be due to hormonal imbalance but it got me super worried. 

The next thing I did was to watsapp Dr Gerard Ee from The Clifford Clinic for a solution.  I sent him that photo and asked him for his expert opinion on what treatment I should go for or what pills I should take to keep the pimples away.

Dr Ee was very kind to ask me to go over to his clinic so that he can take a look at my skin condition to decide on the next course of action.  I decided on a date and time and viola... I was back at The Clifford Clinic to get rid of my pimples. 

After consultation with Dr Ee, he recommend HydraFacial Treatment and he strongly discouraged me to take any pills to curb my pimples from coming up as he said pills would be too aggressive a treatment and my condition did not warrant taking pills to get rid of the pimples.

To be frank, I was skeptical about HydraFacial as I thought, "How would a facial be able to help my skin?'  As far as I know, a facial is just cleansing, steaming, extraction, masking of the face, applying toner and moisturiser.

I kept asking Dr Ee if this would really work but he reassured me that it would.  As Dr Ee is the expert in skin problems, I decided to go with his recommendation and I was whisked into the facial treatment room a few minutes later.

This machine was the first thing that caught my attention.  I asked the therapist and she said that the products used for HydraFacial are kept inside and will be administered on the skin using the machine.  

Wow... so super high tech!  I wished I have one at home to do my own facial.  With a click of a button, the machine would administer the right amount of products based on the steps of the treatment.

There were a total of 2 facial treatment rooms and both looked so comfortable.

Taking a selfie before my HydraFacial Treatment.  My skin looked ok here right?  Don't be deceived.. If you go closer, you would be able to see the pimples and redness... sob sob.

The therapist removed those dirt and oil from my face first before Step 1 of HydraFacial treatment.

After the therapist started on Step 1 of HydraFacial Therapy, I realised how powerful this machine was.  Each step was carried by this machine and therein lies the power of this machine to achieve instant and lasting results.

The Process

Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation
Dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy new skin.

Step 2: Acid Peel
This gentle peel helps loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation.

Step 3: Extractions
Painless, automated extractions using vortex suction to clean out pores.

Step 4: Hydration
Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acide are Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect.

Experience Vortex-Fusion

Each treatment uses a series of patented HydroPeel tips-Each one has multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times each pass, achieving better, more even results.

The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove skin solutions and potent antioxidants.

Results Time

Now... time to see if HydraFacial really worked for me.

OMG... my skin has never looked so glowy and radiant before!  Absolutely no makeup, no photo filter at all for the photo below.

ok, I gotta declare myself as a die-hard fan of HydraFacial Treatment from now on.  This is so amazing that I couldn't believe my eyes!

Remember I mentioned that I was very skeptical at first but results really speak volume.  My face had never been so clean before.  I can only say... WOW!

Afterwhich, Dr Ee prescribed the Light Therapy for me to kill all the bacteria on my face that was causing the breakouts.  A mask was placed on top of my face while the light shone on it.  There was no pain and I almost fell asleep on the bed.

ok, I am gonna do HydraFacial every month cos it works!

There is no downtime or discomfort, shows immediate results, targets specific skin concerns and provides an alternative to invasive procedures.

HydraFacial is going at S$128 (before GST) in The Clifford Clinic.  I think everyone should go for this treatment to throughly cleanse and protect your face with powerful anti-oxidants.

I count my lucky stars that I am blessed to be able to work with awesome sponsors, like the lady boss of Vanity by Nailz Treats.  She is ever ready to help me check if there are slots so that I can drop by to do my gelish manicure/pedicure with nailart.

When I called a few days back, the sweet lady boss asked me if I wanted to do do eyelash extensions as well.  Since it has been a while after I removed the previous lash extensions, I decided to go for it again.

Like my new eyelash extensions?  Read on to find out more about my experience at Vanity by Nailz Treats.

So here I was at the Bedok Mall branch.  I like coming to Vanity by Nailz Treats as the staff is so sweet and we can chat freely about anything.

Just take a look at the array of nail colours you can choose from.

And of course, my favourite spot in Vanity at Nailz Treats is definitely where the massage chairs are found... hahaha!

I love sitting on the massage chair getting a back massage while the manicurists work on my nails.

I did my eyelash extensions first before my gelish maniicure/pedicure.

Vanity by Nailz Treats has different options for you to choose from.  I always go for the 3D unlimited strands option with eyelash extensions that are shorter from the inner corner of the eyes and becoming longer when they are nearer to the outer corner of the eyes.  That way, my eyes will appear longer and more dramatic looking.  CC curl from 10 mm to 13 mm were used on my eyes to achieve the effect I wanted.

Saying bye bye to my original eyelashes.

Now take a look at the me after the eyelash extensions.

I can't emphasize how much time I have saved from putting on makeup as I don't need to apply my falsies now... woohoo!

Here are some tips I saw at Nailz Treats on how to take good care of your eyelash extensions.  Very thoughtful of them indeed!

It had been a while since I did my manicure hence my nails are pretty long and I asked the manicurist to cut them short as I personally prefer my nails to be shorter.

The manicurist trimmed away my dead cuticles around my nails before applying gelish top coat.

 After which the manicurist proceeded to apply coloured gelish nail polish on my nails.

Guess what nailart designs I went with this time round?

Just look at the immaculate artwork!

Loving the musical notes that were painstakingly drawn on my nails.  The manicurist was very skilful to be able to draw them on my small nails.  Thanks so much!

 A close up of the nailart design... Love the ombre colours as well!
