The 1st Ave. Hair Treatment Centre offers treatments (HK$600 to HK$980) targeting problems such as hair loss, dandruff and dehydrated hair, using products from French brand René Furterer. After examining your scalp with a diagnosis machine, the beautician selects the most suitable treatment. The hydrating ritual, for example, starts with essential oils being rubbed on to the scalp before a mask is applied and the hair is “steamed”. The result is a healthy mane with a silky sheen. The 1st Ave Hair Treatment Centre is at 21/F, 8 Russell Street, Causeway Bay.

Klorane’s Mask with Desert Date (HK$350/150ml) is meant for dry and brittle hair. The Desert Date tree, which is native to parts of Africa and the Middle East, contains a high concentration of restorative lipids and proteins. What we like about it, though, is how it both looks and smells like caramel.

Caviar and white truffle sound more at home on your plate than your hair, but British haircare brand Show Beauty has added extracts from both to its Sublime Repair Treatment (HK$520/200ml), which is said to enrich hair and improve tensile strength.
