Rene Furterer Scalp and Hair Workshop at Berjaya Times Square, KL

Glad that I attended Rene Furterer Scalp and Hair Workshop that was held in Manhattan V, Level 14, Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on a Saturday morning. It was a fun Saturday to learn and understand more about hair plus I picked up some scalp and hair massage steps. 

Well, before attend the workshop I have a few hair concerns so I hope to get the answers and help to improve my hair conditions. My hair is dry and frizzy due the perm and coloring. Plus I am getting worried because I find that my hair fall or drop quite excessively, more than usual.

René Furterer’s treatment products are made with plant extracts and essential oils. 

My favourite Complexe 5 (essential treatment)

René Furterer’s treatment products are made with plant extracts and essential oils known for their therapeutic as well as aromatic properties. The essential oils are mainly used for their deep-cleansing, stimulating (warm essential oils) and soothing (cold essential oils) action.

A pioneer in hair treatments, René Furterer based his theory on the principle that: “Beautiful hair grows on a healthy scalp like a plant in fertile soil”. This is how René Furterer came to offer a complete range of treatments for scalp and hair.

René Furterer relies on a unique, original Method which offers exceptional personalized treatments for optimized performance.

Hair Demo Session
We learn the steps for self massage at home, Lisa Chow was the model of the day.

Step 1: Holding your fingers together, massage scalp as if pushing the base of skull up to
the top of the head. Circular motion going outwards should be slow.

Step 2: Holding fingers together, make small back and forth vibrating motions, going
from the forehead to the top of the head. This tones up the scalp.

Step 3: To finish, with both hands flat, press down on the scalp, let hands slide down
from the forehead to the nape.

Brushing is essential. It eliminates dust and hair that is falling out, and restores hair volume. Hair should be brushed every day and before any treatments. Massages bring well-being and relaxation during personalized treatments but mainly promote their effectiveness They mobilize the scalp and stimulate microcirculation while facilitating product penetration. As an alternative, René Furterer also recommends his 3 self massages for home.

Scalp & Hair Analysis
After the workshop we had scalp and hair analysis to know the type of scalp and hair that we have. We also get some consultation from the beauty adviser or staff what product or hair care range that is best suitable for out scalp and hair type. Mine is Dry Scalp & Dry Hair plus Anti-Hair Loss.

 Scalp & Hair Analysis

  Scalp & Hair Consultation

The analysis reveals the condition of scalp, and possibly, of alopecia, dandruff, redness or irritation. The diagnosis also measures the level of sebum secretion in order to assess if scalp tends to be oily or dry. It also defines hair type (thick or thin) and the conditions of dryness and damage.
