In this section, we have listed down the most frequently asked questions from our customers. You may also FaceBook message us or call us to enquire more 🙂 

Yes you may, but we strongly discourage you to do it.

 

The herbal elements will stay on your scalp and hair for 2 to 3 weeks. If you opt for chemical treatment within this period, it may not be able to penetrate fully into your hair shaft, this will affect the desired results.

 

Furthermore, any chemical treatment might undo the good we have done for your hair and scalp, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.

 

We will advise you to refrain from any colouring, perming, rebonding or performing any chemical process to your hair for at least 3 weeks to allow the herbal ingredients to be fully absorbed into your scalp.

No. Bee Choo Ladies is a sub-brand of Bee Choo Origin in the premium category. Package sharing is only available for branches at Bedok, Hougang, Clementi, Ang Mo Kio, Marsiliing and Bukit Merah.

No, you do not have to buy. We provider à la carte herbal hair treatment. We do not believe in up-selling tactics, we strongly believe that when customers see results they will automatically come again on their own and refer their friends and family members to us. This is how we are able to keep the treatment affordable for the long term.

It is not necessary, as our herbal treatment is targeted to remove oil and dirt on the scalp. However, if you have styling gel, wax or clay applied on your hair, you can inform us and we will gladly wash away the styling substance on your hair before proceeding with the treatment.

No, we do not provide hair cutting or hair setting services at out salon. We are strictly a hair treatment establishment. Do note that our therapist will only semi-blow-dry your hair post treatment. This is to ensure that your hair absorbs all the nutrients from the herbal paste after treatment. In addition, over blow-drying post treatment will damage your hair ends, thus it is best to let it air dry once hair has been semi-dried.

At the moment, we are providing complementary hair & scalp scanning services if you visit during our off peak hours. Our off peak hours at 10am to 5pm (weekdays). If you want to get a hair scan during our peak period, it would be best to call our shop and check before hand.

The natural dye will remain on your hair for a good 2 – 4 months depending on your hair type, how frequent you wash your hair, etc. It does not last indefinitely because our natural dye is a semi-permanent dye, meaning to say, it does not penetrate your hair shaft but forms a layer of coating around your hair.

Our treatment is not henna; we are using 100% Chinese herbs. We prepare the herbal treatment by cooking the Chinese herbs. Whereas for henna, after you choose the desired colour, hot water, tea or coffee is added into the henna powder to form the henna paste. Customer who experience discomfort, redness or itchiness on their scalp after the henna treatment, do not experience any of the earlier mentioned after doing our Herbal treatment.

Our policy is that we will never introduce any form of chemical into our paste to achieve a desired colour. This is one of the reasons why our herbal paste comes only in reddish/copper colour at the moment.

 

Currently, at Bee Choo Ladies, we are trialing a “colourless” version of the herb, if you intend to try this version, you have to let the Manager know 5 working days in advance before coming down for treatment. However, be warned, the colourless version may still have a tinge of copper colour especially if your hair had been bleached before.

This will depend on your scalp condition. For those with severe hair issues, you should treat your hair every week for the first one to two months to benefit fully from the intensive herbal reconditioning. You can reduce the frequency once the health of your scalp improves. See our scalp health chart here.

Our herbal treatment contain herbs like Dang Gui, Ginseng, He Shuo Wu, Chuan Xiong, Lin Zhi and many other ingredients that effectively help control and improve your hair condition and at the same time, encouraging hair growth. There are no chemicals added to our herbal paste. 

 

All our herbal pastes are freshly cooked daily in the factory to ensure freshness and quality. The chinese herbs are cooked for hours in order to bring out the nutrients from the herbs which are essential in bringing back the health in your scalp.

 

Our range of hair products such as the shampoos, conditioner, tonics and spa contain chemicals. Our products are top of the range and as far as possible we have remove the use of potentially harmful chemicals in our hair products. 

If your natural hair colour is brown or black, it will not be affected. This is illustrated by the hair scan images below:
