Dr. Qu Hair Care

I admit - it's a chore to maintain smooth and good-looking hair. People ask me what's the secret to my shiny hair, despite going through the damage of having so many chemicals touch it. I say, NOBODY is born with the perfect hair, you have to work hard for what you want. That is why owning good hair care products is the answer!

You got to admit that our manes are partly what boosts our self-confidence. Even if you're wearing the most gorgeous outfit, you won't look complete without the fabulous-looking hair. Recently, I've started to pay more attention on that part by using the Dr. Qu line of hair care products! Wanted to go for a more organic alternative for the longest time.

Manufactured in Singapore, Dr. Qu is a cult Asian skincare brand that is highly sought after in countries like Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand and USA. Its products have undergone stringent checks and have received the stamp of approval from Japanese and American authorities, guaranteeing it as a safe product of quality. It's call to fame is its ability to heal skin from problems caused by Demodex (a hair follicle mite) like acne rosacea, eczema, other skin irritations, fungal diseases and hair loss. In a survey conducted, it was found that 97.68% of adult males and female have Demodex!? :O

Dr. Qu Hairlth Wash

Dr. Qu's line of herbal-based skincare products is infused with Demodicidin, a unique formulation of scientific technology and traditional Chinese medicine, designed to stop Demodex and prevent them from causing damage to the skin. The Dr. Qu skincare range provides nourishment to the skin and hair while restoring it to its original colour and natural beauty. It also helps to slow down the skin cell aging process. Many who have tried Dr. Qu's products now swear by it as their go-to brand to help with their skin/hair!

The Dr. Qu Hairlth Wash is herbal based and enriched with nutrients to enhance hair and scalp metabolism, keeping it healthy. It also contains effective anti-dandruff properties and hair conditioner. It is said to promote metabolism, strengthens immunity, prevent disease and also prolongs lifespan!

If you have scalp that are oily like mine, you can use it more often!

The lather is not the foamy type with bubbles and all that stuff I'd like. However, I have to say that I've got an itchy scalp that annoys the hell out of me and this shampoo did aid in controlling the itch! My dandruff also showed significantly reduction. I like the fact that it's herbal, which also translates to lesser artificial chemical ingredients and more natural ones!

Dr. Qu Hairlth Conditioner

I cannot stress enough how important a conditioner plays in smooth-looking hair! Conditioners really do wonders upon application, tried and tested myself. I was away on holiday recently, and one of the hotels I stayed in didn't provide hair conditioners! The next few days, the ends of my hair looked like it was deprived of moisture like a dry land or something. I felt horrible going out with my hair like that!

Natural herbal based conditioning product, the hairlth conditioner is designed to provide lasting protection and vital hydration to hair on a day to day basis. It is engineered to give you maximum protection against damage from UV radiation, heat, chemical treatments and daily styling, through quick and easy application.

A pump or two is enough to provide the hydration for my hair. Apply and lather generously on the wet hair ends. The trick is the longer you leave it on, the more optimal the results!

The Dr Qu Hairlth Conditioner actively replenishes the vitality and health of hair and consistently prevents hair loss (especially Demodex related), breakage and split ends. By nourishing both hair and follicles with a natural international award winning Demodicin formula, Dr Qu Hairlth Conditioner not only prevents hinders the growth of Demodex, but also reinforces and strengthens the structure and roots of your hair, to improve quality and manageability and provides extra shine and gloss to your daily look.

Dr. Qu's products are retailing online, as well as Yue Hwa Emporium and Strangelets (Yong Siak Street).

Yakult Health Foods Debut Launch in Singapore

Japanese health food giant, Yakult Health Food is finally making its foray into Singapore and the regional market! Best known for their familiar line of Yakult probiotic milk drinks that I grew up with, naturally I look forward to growing old with their health foods. After many years of huge success in Japan, its complete range of health food is finally launched at Guardian Pharmacies in Singapore! I attended their debut launch at Chinatown Point!

I found boxes after boxes of their star products containing kale being displayed. Yakult contract farmers grow kale in their own farms from the Kunisaki Peninsula, Oita-Ken, Kyushu. There are absolutely no agrochemical/chemical fertilizers or pest control used in their soil! Only fully natural ripened compost is used as fertilizers.

There are also no artificial colouring/flavouring/preservative used in their products!

I saw the aunties sitting beside me bought so many of the Yakult Health Food products. I didn't mean to, but I overheard their conversation; though the products were relatively new in the Singapore market, the aunties are long-time faithful customers of Yakult. That is exactly why they put so much of their faith in it!

There was a photo gallery to improve the public's awareness about their products, and also to witness what goes on in the cultivation process. The contract farmers put a lot of time and effort into cultivation, even removing pests by hand!

The event kick-started off with a Japanese Drum Performance. You should've been there; I loved their enthusiasm!
All of us were honoured listening to speeches by Abeille D’or (S) Pte Ltd's General Manager, Miss Pee Hwee Kim, Guardian's Chief Operating Officer, Miss Sarah Ann Boyd, as well as the Guest of Honour, Hideaki Maruyama San, President of Yakult Health Foods Japan!

Today, many people lead hectic lifestyles with the habit of eating out and not consuming enough greens, which are essential in our diets *hand up* guilty as charged.......

With that, Yakult introduced the Maroyaka Kale Powder which are packaged in stick sachets! Each box contains 30 satchets, good to last for a month. Kale is fast becoming a highly sought-after health food in recent years. It is one of the healthiest vegetables you can find; it is high in calcium and contains β-carotene.

Yakult Health Foods' Maroyaka Kale offers consumers the goodness and benefits of genuine, premium kale, readily available for consumption. It packs a punch with up to β-carotene and of Vitamin K, a powerful antioxidant that reduces overall risk of developing cancer. It boasts high concentrations of antioxidants Vitamins A, C and phytonutrients too. Vitamin K is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions, including normal blood clotting and bone health.

Each serving of the Maroyaka Kale is able to provide you the necessary nutrients to supplement your daily greens intake. You can consume it in many ways - dissolve it in cold water or milk, eat it with yoghurt, or even sprinkle it on your ice cream!

The highly concentrated kale powder retains the rich, delicious flavour and mild taste of kale. If you want to go for the full taste, drink it with cold water like I did. If you don't fancy the taste of vegetables so much, then I suggest you might want to try another way which you feel more comfortable with!

Maroyaka Kale is on shelves at Guardian Pharmacy retailing at the introductory price of $79.90 from now till 30th September 2014! You can also find the complete range of Yakult Health Foods there.

By the way Abeille d'Or, sole distributor of Yakult Health Foods, will be having a Colon Health Talk Seminar this Saturday 19 April! Dr. Haresh Kumar Kantilal (Ph.D Medical Science, M.Sc. Microbiology. A Medical Microbiologist and Speaker in Nutrition) will be at the seminar as a speaker.
