QUESTIONS


Can hair loss be treated through herbal hair treatment?

With herbal hair treatment and a proper hair care regimen, most cases of hair loss can be controlled and even stopped. It is a matter of severity, and it is best to visit us in person for a consultation with our hair care specialists.

What benefits can I expect from the treatment?

Our herbal hair treatment cleanses and nourishes the scalp, creating optimal conditions for healthy hair growth. Thus customers can expect:

• reduction in dandruff
• reduction in hair loss
• slower grey hair growth
• accelerated black hair growth
• in many cases, new black hair growth 
• softer, smoother and shinier hair
• covering of grey hairs, which turn to a beautiful burgundy hue

Do you provide services other than hair treatment?

Hairbitat’s main focus is on herbal hair treatment so as to ensure the best quality of service, but we have slowly expanded our services to include other quality herbal offerings such as skin pack. Do call in or visit us to undertand more from our staff.

I do not have hair loss problems, can I benefit from the treatment?

Definitely! In addition to solving hair loss or scalp problems, our treatment can help cover grey hair, make hair more manageable, eliminate dandruff, and maintain the health of the hair and scalp.

Is this only for ladies?

Whether you are a gentleman or a lady, as long as you are interested in caring for your hair, please do not hesitate to approach our friendly hair care specialists for a personalized analysis.

Is the treatment suitable for children or pregnant women?

Yes, as there is no part of the treatment or hair care program that involves ingesting any kind of medication, the treatment is suitable for pregnant women. There is also no age restriction for the treatment so long as the child is tall enough for the steamer to reach while seated. Throughout S.E Asia there are many children receiving Bee Choo Origin herbal treatment for hair loss.

Is it necessary to make an appointment?

Walk-ins are most welcome, though we do recommend that you make an appointment to shorten waiting times.

How often must I come for treatment?

The number and frequency of treatment is dependent on the severity of the hair loss condition, and we suggest that you approach our friendly hair therapists for a recommendation. However, the herbal treatment does require time to completely be absorbed by the scalp, and so the greatest possible frequency of treatment is likely to be once a week. The frequency will of course be reduced after the first 1-2 months of treatment. Statistically, 80% of our customer see improvements in hair growth and reduction in hair loss within 2-3 months time, while reduction in dandruff problems and improvement in hair texture can often be noticeable after the first 2 or 3 treatments.

Is the herbal treatment truly 100% chemical-free?

The herbal treatment is definitely 100% chemical-free; even preservatives are not used, and each batch of herbal paste lasts no more than 10 days. As such the paste has to be freshly prepared every week.

What is the significance of a 100% chemical-free treatment?

While many salons offer hair treatment which softens and improves the condition of hair, many of these are short-term and costly solutions that contain toxic chemicals which are harmful for the scalp in the long-term. Similarly, most commercial hair dyes (with the exception of natural Henna) also contain such chemicals and are detrimental to healthy hair growth. A 100% chemical-free treatment will not irritate the scalp, and the reddish-brown coloring that covers grey hairs is a natural effect of the treatment.

Will my hair change color after the treatment?

Only grey hairs will be coloured. Dyed hair may turn slightly darker, whereas black hair will be unaffected.

Is the herbal treatment the same as Henna?

While the colour effect of the treatment is similar to that of natural Henna, the herbal treatment paste is prepared from Chinese herbs. Henna is only meant for cosmetic use to cover grey hair, and does not treat hair loss or scalp problems. On the other hand, our treatment is effective in treating hair loss, scalp problems, and improves hair texture and manageability. As the ingredients of the herbal treatment paste originate from natural sources, it smells similar to Henna (a kind of plant).

What herbs are used in the herbal treatment?

The complete recipe for Bee Choo Origin’s proprietary herbal paste is a trade secret and cannot be revealed. However, it does contain herbs used in many well-known Chinese traditional remedies such as Dang Gui, Ginseng, He Shuo Wu and many other ingredients that effectively help control and improve your hair condition and simultaneously encourage hair growth. All ingredients are in fact edible, many of which are used in Chinese cooking, and are not toxic even when combined.

What other program should I follow besides the treatment?

We are strong believers that our herbal hair treatment is only the first step, and the maintenance of healthy hair must be supported by a healthy lifestyle and hair care regime. We strongly recommend that you cut down on oily food, get enough sleep and of course learn to manage your stress levels. While this may seem commensensical, it is simple but not easy to do consistently. For more advice, do approach our hair care specialists.

Is hair growth guaranteed?

The majority of hair loss problems are caused by the slowing down of the hair renewal cycle. While some amount of hair fall is natural and inevitable, excessive hair fall usually occurs when the hair follicles cannot grow new hairs fast enough, leading to the thinning of hair and ‘growing’ bald patches. Our herbal treatment creates the optimal conditions for the scalp to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss and related scalp problems, and so long as the hair follicles exist, the restoration of healthy hair renewal cycles is possible. However, in rare cases, hair follicles may be completely absent or dead, and no amount of treatment will be able to cause hair to grow. For severe hair loss conditions due to medical reasons, we recommend that you also seek assistance from certified physicians to assist in controlling hormonal imbalances that may causes hair loss in order to see faster results.

Can I go to work after the herbal treatment? Is there any color or smell after the herbal treatment?

Yes, you can still go to work after the herbal treatment. There will be a slight herbal smell which is similar to Henna that will dissipate after 2-3 days, and only grey hair will be colored.

Can I color my hair or style my hair by rebonding or straightening after the herbal treatment?

Yes, customers may do what they wish with their hair after herbal treatment. However, herbal elements will stay on your hair and scalp for up to 3 weeks while it gets absorbed, and chemicals may be unable to penetrate fully into the hair. Thus we advise you to refrain from any coloring, perming, rebonding or performing any chemical process to your hair for at least 3 weeks after treatment. This is to allow the herbal ingredients to be fully absorbed into your scalp before doing any chemical process. If coloring is necessary for work (e.g. dye black to cover the burgundy color), we recommend that only natural hair coloring products that do not contain harmful chemicals be used, and only 24 hours after treatment.

Coloring, rebonding and other such forms of treatment are often damaging to the hair. If you still wish to do so, we recommend that you do these treatment first, then visit us for Bee Choo Origin herbal treatment to keep your hair in good condition.

Can I go swimming after treatment? Will chlorine affect the treatment? How long before I can
go swimming?

Yes you can, but it is not recommended for at least 24 hours as the herbs require time to be absorbed into the scalp for full benefits. If you really need to swim, wear a cap to minimise contact with chlorinated water as chlorine will damage your hair.

Do I need to wash my hair before the herbal treatment?

It is not necessary as our herbal treatment is targeted to remove oil and dirt on the scalp. For customers who have applied styling gel, wax or clay to their hair, simply inform our staff and we will gladly wash the styling substance from your hair before treatment.

What makes Bee Choo Origin peripheral products (e.g. shampoos) better than other commercial brands since some of them also contain chemicals?

Bee Choo Origin products are specially formulated as a complement to the herbal treatment to give comprehensive care to both your hair and scalp rather than focus on short term results such as dandruff removal or simple smoothening of hair without giving proper care to the scalp, where the root of the problems usually is. Bee Choo Origin products keep chemicals in products to an absolute minimum so as to improve your hair and scalp health in a natural, wholesome way.

Is the herbal treatment available at other salons? 

Distribution of the proprietary herbal hair treatment formula is exclusive to Bee Choo Origin’s franchisees. Hairbitat is the exclusive distributor of the Bee Choo Origin brand in India. Therefore, herbal treatment is only available at Hairbitat salons.
