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.
Bee Choo Origin has a wide product range, ranging from Shampoos to Conditioners to Hair Tonics and Spas. This is so that we have the right product type for the different hair types and scalp conditions.
You may refer to this guide to understand on which Bee Choo Origin Shampoo and Tonic might suit your hair or scalp type.
The natural dye will remain on your hair for a good 2 to 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 very safe. It does not contain any chemicals or harmful ingredients. We see more than 1000 customers per month at our outlet and very rarely do we see allergic reactions to the herbal treatment.
With that said, there is always exceptions. In very rare cases, we have seen minor rash break out in customers; most of the time this is solved by having the customer NOT steam their head and instead leaving the herbal paste on for 1 hour. These people are sensitive to heat and therefore unable to go through the steaming process.
Do take extra caution if you are G6PD deficient. Although we do not have any case where our herbal treatment had trigger hemolysis in G6PD deficient customers, we are aware that our herbal paste may be a possible trigger, especially in children. So if you decide to proceed with the herbal treatment knowing that you’re G6PD deficient, it will be at your own risk.
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.
We do have a “colouress” version. However, be warned, the colourless version may still have a tinge of copper colour especially if your hair had been bleached before. Also, the steaming process may also cause your previous colour to run, but this rarely happens.
Natural Colouring from the Herbal Paste
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.
Although the herbal treatment is identical, the process and setting is different.
Bee Choo Ladies is exclusively for ladies only. This is to cater to women with greater privacy needs due to their hair condition, religion or just preference. In addition, Bee Choo Ladies, is in a premium setting and location. The additional services include a 5 mins scalp massage before herbal application. Bee Choo Ladies also offers complementary hair scans during off peak hours 10-5pm weekdays.
Bee Choo Ladies also has an appointment system to reduce waiting time whereby other Bee Choo Origin outlets does not accept appointments and is strictly walk-in only.
Pricing wise, Bee Choo Ladies is SGD 5 more expensive for the different hair type. For example, if you have the shortest hair length type, at Bee Choo Ladies, it would cost SGD 41 for the treatment whereas at other Bee Choo Origin outlets, it would cost you SGD 36.
If your natural hair colour is brown or black, it will not be affected. This is illustrated by the hair scan images below:
As seen in the picture, the natural black hair remain unchanged while white hair turned copperish in colour. If your natural hair colour is blonde, it will become brownish/copperish in colour.
This is the treatment process that we have at Bee Choo Ladies. No injections, no pain, no medication. Purely herbal hair treatment.
We use 100% natural herbs in our treatment and products to boost hair growth. This will allow you to enjoy a thicker head of hair again, without any invasive treatment. Since we utilise natural herbs, you will also not be loading a ton of chemicals onto your hair, which might eventually do more harm than good. Our hair treatments are safe and effective, so there is no need to worry about any toxic chemicals coming into contact with your scalp. While you might be thinking that herbs often come with a strong, pungent smell, the hair products and treatments that we use do not come with any unpleasant smells. Some ancient herbs we use include ginseng, lingzhi and ginger.
This is our honest pricing. It depends on your hair length – the shorter it is, the cheaper due to lesser herbs used. No need to sign package, you can also make payment upfront before treatment. 🙂
