The award: Best Scalp-strengthening Treatment

The winner: Shiseido Professional SUBLIMIC Adenovital Scalp Treatment, $150

Did you know that when your skin starts to age, your scalp also does so? In fact, Japanese haircare brand Shiseido Professional’s scientists found that many women start to notice the signs of scalp ageing from as early as their mid-30s. 

The brand’s researchers discovered that the scalp’s deepest layer has a significant impact on the hair’s active growth phase. In short, a healthy, strong and resilient scalp is needed for quality hair.  

The SUBLIMIC Adenovital Scalp Treatment uses cutting-edge technology from the brand’s SUBLIMIC Salon Solutions (Advanced Care) range to help create a healthy scalp environment and address scalp-ageing concerns. The aim: strengthen the scalp to prevent future hair problems. 

The in-salon treatment includes the application of a unique Leading Primer that covers the scalp with ultra-fine bubbles. These reach deep into the pores to improve absorption of nutrients from the Intensive Cream or Gel (chosen based on your hair and scalp needs). 

What happened after we tried the treatment

“Upon arriving at Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio, I was led to a private room away from the noise of the main salon – something I appreciated after a long day at work. 

Shunji Matsuo’s International Director Rino, who’s also Shiseido Professional’s SPa-Expert Leader, and her assistant greeted me and explained what the treatment was about, after which they did a scalp analysis to diagnose my scalp condition.

Rino is Shunji Matsuo’s International Director, and Shiseido Professiona’s SPa-Expert Leader.

I found this part really interesting, as it gave me a close-up look at my scalp. I learnt about different scalp conditions, and what healthy hair strands should look like. Both the consultant and assistant were very concise in their explanations, and were able to answer my questions. 

I learnt that the SUBLIMIC Adenovital Scalp Treatment is best for people who are experiencing hair loss. And while my hair follicles and scalp were in pretty good shape, the consultant noticed that there were some areas where hair loss was starting. The treatment would help as a preventive measure, she said. 

There were many steps to the treatment, and every one was explained carefully. Pre-treatment, I was given a wondrous shoulder and neck massage. Next, my hair and scalp were given a good scrub, using the SUBLIMIC Adenovital Shampoo. A serum was then applied on my scalp, to prep it to absorb the scalp tonic. 

My scalp felt the cleanest it had been in the longest time, and I was given a nice blowout (nothing dramatic, just the ends of my hair curled the way I like). Even two days post-treatment, I noticed that my scalp still felt clean. 

I’d never considered doing scalp treatments before, but I’m sold on the SUBLIMIC Adenovital Scalp Treatment. Having gone through the detailed scalp analysis, I’ve also come to realise how important it is to maintain a clean and healthy scalp. Plus, I really love the scent of the SUBLIMIC Adenovital products, which is a mix of citrus and mint – such a refreshing combination for your scalp and hair.”
