Hair loss is such common medical condition that affects anyone - regardless of gender. Hair, very much like our health, is something we take for granted until we notice visible changes that affect us negatively.

Many people are reluctant to spend money to treating hair loss at an early stage because they think that it will get better and adopt the wait-and-see attitude. Most people also feel that they should be investing the money to age-proof the skin rather than the hair. Truth is, it is pointless to have beautiful, glowing skin when you don’t have lustrous tresses to accentuate the look.

We managed to pick the brains of one of the most brilliant aesthetic doctors in Singapore, Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, to find out some effective ways to prevent further hair loss and maintain a healthy head of hair.


Some oils are beneficial for promoting hair growth and to nourish the scalp. Some popular oils that people claim to see results are:

COCONUT OIL It is a highly versatile oil does not only provide health benefits when consumed. People have claimed that they saw amazing results after applying warm coconut oil on the scalp. Rubbing some warm coconut oil on the scalp nourishes the roots to strength the hair follicles.

ALMOND OIL This fragrant oil contains many types of healthy ingredients for hair such as vitamin E, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. The ingredients help to replenish the minerals in the roots and hair follicles.

Be careful when using natural oil on the scalp. Use it sparingly because excessive oil on the scalp can potentially bring more harm than good to the scalp. It may clog the pores and trigger an acne outbreak. It is best to do it in the shower 5 minutes before you wash it off with a deep cleansing shampoo.


Medical-grade LED Light treatment. has been long known among doctors to promote tissue repair and stimulate cellular activity.

Studies have shown that Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is capable of stimulating hair growth and is beneficial as a potential treatment for several types of hair loss. In fact, FDA approval was obtained in 2007 for a laser comb to treat hair loss and promote hair regrowth.

When exposed to the scalp for at least 20 minutes, the LED light stimulates the hair follicles and promotes cellular regeneration. It prolongs the duration of anagen phase and prevents premature catagen development.

Alternatively, many aesthetic clinics in Singapore offer LED Red Light treatment for the thinning hair.


Consider doing an overhaul of your pantry. Throw out all canned food and processed food. You should try to eat food in its natural state as much as possible, without any preservatives.

Add more omega 3 fatty acids to your diet. Omega 3 fatty acids is an essential component to healthy hair growth. Without it, our hair may appear weak and brittle.

Some common food sources that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids are: Avocados, eggs, fatty fish, eggs, almonds, carrots, walnuts, and fish oil.


Drinking lots of water can help your hair grow better, more vibrant, and healthy. Water helps the body to flush out the toxins faster, which creates a more conducive environment for the hair to grow a lot faster.

“Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, not only your body will thank you, but your hair as well,” says Dr. Siew.


Hair loss treatment is not magic. It is almost impossible to expect a head full of hair if you are in the advanced stage of hair loss. Hair loss is best addressed as early as possible to increase the chance of hair regrowth. It is possible to treat hair loss as long as there are some fine hair still remaining. However, everyone responds differently to the treatment.

In Radium Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Siew devised a proprietary method to treat hair loss. Combining laser treatment and PDRN therapy, he created an intensive treatment to combat hair loss.

Using an advanced laser, LASEMD machine creates micro-channel in the scalp to increase the absorption of the hair serum. It also stimulates cellular regeneration of the scalp. On the other hand, PDRN therapy is administered into the scalp to repair and deeply rejuvenate the scalp at the cellular level.

Patients who have undergone this program have raved about the treatment. Clients who have undergone the treatment have agreed that this is the only treatment they are able to see visible hair growth. Hair Restoration Program is slowly but surely, becoming more popular among people who are experiencing hair loss in Singapore.
