Kérastase Scalp Treatment + Tansan Sparkling Scalp Wash @Number 76

May 24, 2015

Yay! I’m so happy to be able to tell you all about my wonderful experience with Number 76 Style salon yesterday. Thanks to Number76 Sue Ann who contacted me, I was invited to try out one of their hair/scalp treatment at their Mid Valley branch. 

Kindly note that the salon is NOT located inside Mid Valley Megamall. At the mall, proceed to 1st Floor, North Court and cross the pedestrian bridge. Head left and take the escalator down, then walk towards your right. It is located inside North Point, Mid Valley City, a building across the road from Mid Valley Megamall. 

Just follow the simple instructions above and you will find your way to the salon in no time (like me!) 

Various hair services available here.

Once inside the salon, I was welcomed by the front desk lady. She was not in the photos below because she went into hiding when I wanted to take photos. How cute XD

Number 76 Mid Valley branch has an underground secret society vibe to it. Grey cemented pillars and floors with transparent glass panels for daylight to light up the interior in addition to the fluorescent lights strategically-arranged on the ceiling. Shades of grey everywhere. Super like!

Before I continue, I just wanna tell you guys something random. I tend to scratch my scalp a lot especially when I’m asleep. (I know because I wake up to myself having those yucky grey stuff underneath my nails *ewww*) So, in order to prevent my nails from inflicting damage to my scalp, I will cut my nails short regularly so that when my rebellious fingers go up there to scratch, only the ends of my fingers will touch my scalp :’) #okayrandomstorytellingdonenowletscontinue

The consultation began with a thorough scalp-scan using a microscopic scanner(I think) and an iPad. Senior stylist Teddy scanned my scalp and told me that I have a rather healthy scalp except for the topmost of my head. According to him, hair loss is getting severe at the hair parting area and my scalp looks a bit yellowish probably due to improper shampoo-ing. It’s true. I tie my hair everyday for class, hence the tugging force might have caused hair loss. I tend to forget to wash the top area of my scalp too because I focus more on shampoo-ing my hair instead. 

I was able to view my own scalp live on the iPad.

Teddy explained that those brownish round things are clogged pores due to excess sebum and dirt. He also pointed out the hair of different thickness. Most of my hair is relatively thick but there are a few strands of fine ones due to some narrow hair follicles. He recommended the Kérastase Acti-Base Scalp Treatment. I will tell you why later so read on! =P 

After the scalp scan, I was passed over to Teddy’s assistant, Deven for the Tansan Sparkling Scalp Wash. With an additional fee of RM32, you can opt for this scalp wash to be added to your scalp treatment package. Tansan(or ‘碳酸’ in Mandrin/Japanese) is a simple scalp wash in which carbon dioxide is added to the water to remove excessive oil effectively without overdrying the scalp.

 The blanket they provide is so soft and comfy.

Deven rinsed my hair and scalp for three times. Each time, he insisted on showing me the dirt that was washed out. According to him, the stuff being rinsed out for the first time are oil from my hair serum and other hair products; whereas for the second time, the CO2 water is able to rinse out oil and dirt from within the pores and unclog them.

After that, Deven used Kérastase Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energising Shampoo to wash my hair.

After the scalp wash, I can immediately feel my scalp being fresher! It’s similar to the refreshing feeling you get when you remove your makeup after a long day, as if your skin is able to ‘breathe’ again.

See the black thing on the table? My bagpack is actually inside it. Number76 team is so considerate that they provide a sack for your bags to prevent them from getting damaged by chemicals.

Next, Kérastase Specifique Acti-Base was applied to my scalp and massaged until it is absorbed. I could feel a cold sensation on my scalp.

This product helps to "open up" the hair follicles to aid in the growth of thicker hair. It is used to help stimulate the production of hair cells from the roots, growing thicker hair with wide hair follicle. Now you know why Teddy chose this scalp treatment for me.

This acti-base will be left on my hair for 5 minutes before rinsing it off. While waiting for time to pass, I couldn’t resist taking photos of this little boy whom Teddy was attending to. He is just sho cute!!!

If you haven’t known yet, children below 5 years old are able to cut their hair in Number76 salon for FREE! 6-12 years are entitled to 50% discount, while students aged 13-19 are entitled to 30% discount.

Not forgetting to mention, every customer is served with green tea and biscuit. Magazines will be placed on your table for you to read them if you want to. 

 Last but not least, the treatment was completed with this spray, which is a leave-in treatment to help maintaining hair thickness. 

After blowing dry my hair, we did another scalp scan to see whether there is any improvement to my scalp condition.

No more clogged pores thanks to Tansan Sparkling Scalp Wash! But of course my baby hair can still be seen. The treatment will prevent the growth of new baby hair, not making existing ones grow thicker instantly (duh!)

The team even helped to set my hair in curls even though I only came to try out their scalp treatment. It was so nice of them I feel so pampered :’)
