Are you as fascinated as us about the lavish lifestyles of Chaebol Sons and Daughters in Korea?
You may not be able to afford their supercars but now you can experience SOME form of Decadence with LeeKaJa's LKJ Heavenly Head Spa and Hair Treatment! This new scalp and hair treatment is modelled after top spas in Korea and is done by a Korean therapist who has served Chaebol Daughters from Lotte Group (and many other conglomerates).
Agent G trialled the Heavenly Head Spa as part of her Mother's Day Treat at LeeKaJa Korean Hair Salon and loved the experience!
Read more about it below!
I'm a self-professed Korean Drama fan. When I'm not reading up on new hair or beauty treatments, you'll find me on various websites trying to stream the latest Korean Dramas. I've watched a LOT of them, including the wildly popular Korean Odyssey, Goblin, Doctors.
While they may not all feature Chaebols, the opulent lifestyle displayed by the protagonist always gets me thinking about what it is like to live their life. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy being what I am. There is a sort of happiness being normal too!
There's just some strange part of me that's always wondering :P
Hence, I was intrigued when LeeKaJa Korean Hair Salon introduced their new LKJ Chaebol-Worthy Heavenly Head Spa and Hair Treatment. What does it mean for the treatment to be Chaebol-worthy?
I was quite excited when LeeKaJa reached out to me to be one of the first to try it out. The treatment came at a very opportune time as I just came back from a beach holiday, which means very dry hair!
I arranged it days before Mother's Day :D
I dropped my son off at the nursery and rushed down to LeeKaJa's newly revamped outlet at Mandarin Gallery.
Sorry for the less-than-fashionable baby bag :D
The friendly staff guided me to their exclusive Scalp Room, which looks like this:
This is a special room away from all rest of the seats in the salon and is possibly considered their VIP area.
Just take a look at how pretty the entire place is!
Sun Min then came over to help me change into the robe. Sun Min is this very pretty Korean therapist with excellent massage skills. Previously a top beauty therapist at top Spas Evian Spa, AHC Spa and Korean SKII Spa, Sun Min was specially handpicked by the Boss of LeeKaJa Singapore to spearhead the launch of LKJ Heavenly Head Spa and Hair Treatment in Singapore.
The first thing she did after sitting me down was to check my scalp condition.
She used a scalp scanner and also took a look at my scalp visually to get a better idea of my scalp health.
Although the earlier photo looks okay (just a little reddish due to sensitivity), a deeper look showed how disgustingly oily my scalp is.
There is no judgment from her though, something I appreciate.
With the help of a translator behind the scenes, Sun Mi asked various questions about my lifestyle ie. what time I sleep, when I last washed my hair, how often I eat my meals and so on: questions that hint at how my lifestyle could have affected my scalp health.
She then suggested some lifestyle changes before explaining what she will be doing that day to alleviate my oily scalp issues.
Who knew, the first service of the day would be: FOOT MASSAGE!
According to Sun Mi, the foot massage is pretty important because it helps the entire body to relax and increase blood circulation so that the scalp treatment can be better absorbed by the scalp later on.
She first used the special turquoise sea salt to exfoliate my skin before applying the seaweed mask afterwards.
I don't know about the efficacy of the massage for the scalp treatment but I certainly enjoyed it!
I love how her massage is firm and very on point so I could feel the tension released from my legs.
In fact, Sun Mi is so experienced that she could also tell I use my right leg a little more than my left, which is why my right is more rigid and swells a little more. When asked her how I can correct the problem, she advised me to be more conscious about how I walk and try to lean more on my left to avoid bodily asymmetry.
Interesting isn't it?
Once the foot massage was done, she guided me to the washing area to prepare for the scalp treatment.
She prepared a lavender essential oil that helped me relax as I inhaled it in.
I closed my eyes as she gave a very comfortable head and shoulder massage that lulled me to dreamland.
It is there I remained while she embarked on the process of shampooing my hair
After shampooing, Sun Min applied a cooling scalp essence to clarify the scalp.
Before applying a gentle peeling lotion to every part of the scalp.
Next, she massaged the lotion into the scalp. This helps to remove the dead skin and thick layer of oil above the scalp.
To encourage scalp pores to be open, warm mist is directed to my hair and scalp.
Sun MIn didn't just leave me there for 10 minutes while the steamer does its job. She gave my arms and hands a massage in the meantime.
Sun Min washed off the lotion and ended off the head spa with yet another application of the cooling Scalp essence.
That's not the end of the treatment though. The next step is LKJ's signature Korean Cream Bath.
Have you heard or tried Indonesian Cream Bath before? Well, this is the Korean upgraded version.
LeeKaJa brought in a new cream hair treatment from Korea for this specific treatment. Sun Min basically applied it part by part to the entire head!
This part of the treatment basically takes another 20 minutes!
Soon, the treatment at the basin came to an end.
She gave me a good shoulder massage before returning me to the seat.
There she applied one last scalp serum.
And used an electromagnetic machine to improve penetration.
Finally, Sun Min blew my hair dry.
With my hair dry, she used the scalp scanner to let me see the current state of my scalp.
The oils and the dead skin are all gone!
My hair has also become slightly less sensitive at the top.
As for my hair, I'll let you take a look for yourself.
Here's the Before
And now the after:
My hair was feeling very dry and a little tangled after swimming in the sea days before. I really like how the treatment made my hair feel A LOT smoother now but hope that the effect lasts!
This is very possibly THE MOST pampering head spa I've ever experienced in my life.
Sun Min treated me like a queen the moment I stepped into the head spa and gave so many massages (leg, shoulder, hands and head) that it felt more like a full body massage than a head spa! This was a restful and pampering 2.5 hours of me-time that I thoroughly enjoyed.
It is no wonder why Chaebol daughters go for this treatment weekly in Korea (after their regular facials!)
I may not have the moolah to buy that sportscar I see in K-Dramas but I'm thankful for the opportunity to experience this Heavenly Head Spa once in a while.
It's been a week since the treatment and I note that my scalp is less oily than before. It also seems to itch less during the day. Yay! Hope this lasts :P
As for my hair, it remained very very smooth about 2-3 days after. It is still smooth now but of course not as smooth as the day after.
But that is to be expected. Glad to note that I can still feel the effects of the hair treatment after 7 washes!
