Review: Braving myself to 101 Hair Care Centre (Mid Valley Outlet)

by xin on May 24, 2010

I know we see tonnes of hair loss advertisement on the papers, on the billboard, but I never ever thought of looking twice. But just starting last year, I started to notice hair loss on top of my head.

With the hair thinning thought haunting me, I finally braved myself for a scalp check-up. I know it is really disturbing and hard-to-face-it for some, but I thought I should do something about it before it’s too late.

101 Hair Care Centre Mid Valley

Stepping into 101 Hair Care Centre in Mid Valley Boulevard. (Previously known as Beijing 101)

My heart was pounding very fast as I waited at the lounge. It felt like I was going for a major body check-up.

I was required to fill in some personal particulars then was brought into the consultation room. It was 1-1 consultation and it was very personal.

This is the machine used for checking my scalp condition.



The main cause for my hair loss is – over production of sebum hence clogging my hair follicles! Gosh! But I wash my hair twice daily!

*deep sigh*

Next, I was brought to the next room for another check-up known as – Demodex follicle mites analysis.

They used a pin of my head to extract some specimen for scalp, it is like extracting blackheads. Might be a little bit painful but it is done very fast.

Then, they will place the specimen underneath the microscope to check for any mites that might be inhibiting INSIDE your hair follicle.

Checked. Clear. *phew*

Finally, deep cleanse treatment time!

I was given a good hair wash, and a good massage to relieve my really tensed up scalp.

Then, a solution is used to cleanse my scalp for DEEP cleansing.

The consultant was doing a really neat job by cleansing my scalp inch by inch.

The feeling of thoroughly cleansed scalp is awesome!

Then, a comb with solution (nourishing comb) was used to pat on my scalp. This is actually the hair-growth essence. The patting motion will help to promote the penetration of the essence.

Next, this is the acupuncture machine. Yeah the feeling of tonnes of needles hitting your scalp.

It felt tingling and a bit of electrical shock.  See? It’s definitely a pleasure to service my scalp!

Additionally, they also provide a heat pillow for your back. It felt really good to warm my back after a whole tiring day.

The whole treatment took about an hour.

And I was led to the consultation room again for second check-up. This time, I felt more confident.

A thoroughly cleansed scalp!!! Beautiful!

before and after treatment

And my before-after picture of the scalp. As you can see, most of the sebum were removed and I also learnt that – all my life, I shampoo my hair the wrong way! Oh well, I hope there is still hope for my hair loss trouble.

As usual, at the end of the treatment I was given some introduction of the products and treatment package. I was told that just 10 treatments with the use of products and supplement to revive my hair.

I am actually considering it, as I want to rescue my hair before it’s too late.

Anyone has something to share with me?

consultant gigi

My consultant of the day – Gigi Choy.

She is friendly and not pushy at all. So, if you would like to try out the treatment, you can engage her. She is stationed in the Mid Valley Outlet.

The treatment above is charged RM406.  Sometimes they have promotion on the papers, so you can look out for it.

I would like to try, how much does it cost? Does the treatment works for you?


prettybeautiful December 2, 2010 at 9:07 am

Chris: Watch out for newspaper ad, sometimes they have a special trial fee. The treatment DID work to cleanse my scalp, however, it was only one-time, I can’t say it helped my hair growth or not.


wan December 31, 2010 at 6:48 pm

Balenion, Chris, and Wan…. Pls do not feel you are making wrong decision in puchasing the package in 101 hair care!
First, I would like to clarify myself, I am neither the consultant nor employee of 101 hair care. I am a customer of them!
All these while, my family history has a very thin scalp and our hair easily drop, I only age 25+ and my hairline is terrible and horrible obvious! So I have make up my mind to find way to regrowth my hair!
Before I sign up with them, I did try up in first trial in few difference hair care saloon, eg Yun Nam, Neeta….. Etc…. Honestly I don’t feel the rest of the hair care center is professional except 101 hair care!
So I sign up the first package with them, frankly speaking it is costly and that time I also worry that I don’t get any result! However, ask yourself… Worry can help you? The answer doesn’t help, why not just follow what the professional said! Hence I listen to my consultant, besides doing my treatment on time every week, take necessary supplement and veggies and fruits, healthy food diet and rest early, and home care product! Surprisingly, 4 months later, my scalp is very clean, every follicle of my hair can see clearly and my hair start growing, alot of baby hair is growing and my hairline gap become smaller! I am so happy with my result!
Then, I signed up again for my long term maintenance for hair and now I do my treatment average every twice or three a month. My hair is become better, stronger and it regrowth!
If those who really want to cure their hair problem, do visit 101 hair care at mid valley, you can look for my consultant Ms Joey Teh (just mentioned that recommended by me Vanessa, Coz you will get extra benefits if you are being referred), meanwhile she is professional and she is the one who help me to regrowth my hair!
And of course, I would like to give good credit to all the consultants and therapist there, they are really professional!
Pls take note, Never Never Never ever go to Yun Nam for first trial, Coz the consultants and therapist there super terrible and money face, not professional at all! Yun Nam, New York, London and Dorra are under the same company!


Jj January 26, 2013 at 9:21 pm

Hi Vanessa! U claimed tat 101 hair care works? How much is ur long term package? 🙂 do reply Ty!


Vanessa February 5, 2013 at 12:55 am

Hi Jj, sorry for late reply. Yes, 101 hair care is works! It is really works! You try to look for my consultant Joey (you tell her referred by me Vanessa), you will get a good deal from her. She is very good in helping me to plan long term treatment. Just on January 2013, I got a good deal on home care products from her…. Hahahaa…. Eventhough, it is a bit costly, one thing I dare to say “IT IS WORTH FOR MONEY” you can see the result!
Besides, I met 101 hair care founder once in Dec 2012, he told me before, their products are produce and manufacture themselves. Somemore, the founder is quite old already, OMG, he still got tons of hairs. I try to Stare at his hair for so long, is real hair. Anyway, why I tell you this story? Coz I saw once, a hair grow company’s founder, the founder got male baldness problem and he try to sell us his products and treatment, I was like “OMG, you also can’t cure yourself, how you want to cure us.”
Anyway, I am a very discipline customer, I follow exactly all the steps and all intructions given by my consultant Joey. Therefore, my results is improve obviously! If you want to make things works well, be DISCIPLINE, so that your spending is worth it!
Do not go to Yun Nan, otherwise you will regret?

I am here to let everyone know my experience with Svenson & 101 Hair care. I started a few years back when I started to think to treat my thinning hair problem and wanders around and end up sticking to Svenson for 1 yr because the initial pricing proposed by 101 is RM8k and it shocked me and I chose RM2.5K for Svenson. For these two yrs, it wasted me about RM10K with the bad services/advice and worsen hairline. I stopped for a while and went up to 101 and signed up the RM8K+. I then stick there since 2012 until now… 3 yrs… and wasted me about RM30K here. I faded up at last deciding not to continue with these treatment anymore. My condition is going from bad to worse after the treatment. Well, the 1st yr looks like it is getting better but it looks like it is only “looks like” because of the angle of the photo capture. They keep continue to persuade for maintenance but the result is going bad. 1st, the therapist is not experience enough. 2nd, the consultant only scan the hair condition when she wanted us to sign up. This is worst experience ever!!! (SIGH..). I sincerely advice whoever out there who is as desperate as me of threating hair thinning problem… DON’T be silly. They never help. 🙁


cloud November 15, 2015 at 8:39 pm

By the way, if anyone trusted about be DISCPLINE, I think they will be spending like at least RM1k for all the products (treatment, tonic & supplement) instructed to use weekly. Trust me it don’t work for my experience in the past 3 yrs!
