Hair Treatment Malaysia
It’s the 3rd time today that you had to vacuum hair off your bedroom floor. Also, your bathroom drain is clogged because of all the hair you’ve shedded in just a shower. And don’t even get started the moment you run your hand through your hair.
Don’t stressed out yet, hair fall happens to all of us. Fun fact: according to the American Academy of Dermatologists, humans lose about 50 to 100 hair strands a day. An amount higher than that, it becomes an issue. Causes usually stem from damaged hair, a sensitive scalp or dandruff.
So how do you solve this issue? Easy. Hair treatment! But hair treatment centres can get expensive & if you’re on a budget, forking out RM350-RM400 is definitely not a viable option.
But lucky for you, TehTalk has compiled a list of the 5 best hair treatment products of 2022 you can get right here in Malaysia!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Hair treatments mean managing hair problems that require a professional solution. Examples of hair conditions that require regular hair treatment at the saloon are frizzy hair, dryness, dandruff, thinning hair, and hair fall – these are the kinds of hair problems that require hair treatment in order to enhance the strength and vibrancy of the hair.
Pampering your hair with good hair treatment will bring many benefits to your hair and self-confidence. Hair treatment is important to ensure that your hair and scalp receive a sufficient amount of nutrients for them to grow healthier and stronger. Also, hair treatment will also leave your hair feeling more softer, lighter, and shinier!
It really depends on your hair. If you have a healthy scalp and hair, then generally you will need to do hair treatment once or twice a month. If you have fair to poorly conditioned hair, usually you will need to apply hair treatment once a week. However, in certain cases where you have had very dry hair with split ends, then you might need to do hair treatment twice a week.
Both terms are used interchangeably since both are often used after shampooing the scalp. Hair treatment is a deep conditioner because it contains a lot more nourishment to offer you hair and even your scalp. Hair treatments are normally used to treat damaged hair, and hair conditioner only helps condition the hair to make it smooth.
Basically, when you notice that your hair has been falling out more than usual, or when you have dyed your hair quite a number of times, or when you notice your hair texture has become rough and dry over the years. Also when you start noticing that your hair isn’t as soft or smooth or healthier as it was, then you might need to consider using hair treatments.
Vitamins also help in managing and treating your hair, and one important vitamin for hair growth is biotin (also known as vitamin B7). It is said that biotin has functions in increasing red blood cells, which then carry oxygens and nutrients to the scalp and hair follicles, thus promoting hair growth altogether.
There are many different types of hair treatments. You can get scalp treatment if you experience a dry or itchy scalp condition; hot oil treatment; hair detox treatment, if your hair is exposed to a lot of chemical hair products, and hair stylings; moisture treatment, and relax treatment. Choosing the right hair treatment by first scheduling a consultation for your hair and scalp. This will ultimately make your hair and scalp happier and healthier!
All things take time, as well as the result of hair treatment. The best result can be evaluated in 3 to 6 months. The complete effect of hair treatment can however be analyzed and observed only after a year passes by. Thus, we strongly advise that you need to be more patient, and please do not get stressed easily if you see slow progress of your hair and scalp.
If you get a keratin treatment for your hair, you should wait 3 to 4 days after your treatment before washing your hair. Within this time, the keratin is allowed to work the best, set, and bond properly with your hair. However, if you must wash your hair sooner than the ideal time, it is best to wait at least 12 hours. If you are still unsure, you may ask your stylist how long you should wait before washing your hair.
Here is the list of things that you should not do after getting keratin hair treatment:
DON’T wash or wet hair for 72 hours (3 days).
DON’T tie hair into a ponytail as this may leave a lasting impression.
DON’T wear hair clips, hair bands or bobby pins as these may leave a lasting impression.
DON’T place hair behind ears for long periods of time.
DON’T rest glasses on the head or use them to hold the hair back.
