PERANAKAN HAIR RITUAL

Inspired by one of the rituals in the elaborate 12-day Peranakan wedding ceremony, every spa guest enjoys a pre-treatment ritual that revolves around the hair. Brides of the past were subjected to a hair cleanse, scalp massage and gentle combing in the open courtyard of her home. This was believed to eradicate impurities and negativity from the girl and bestow good luck on the couple's union.

At Spa Village Malacca, guests are given a shampoo, comb and scalp massage with virgin olive oil and conditioner. Whilst lying on the custom-crafted recliner, black-and-white movies from the oeuvre of P Ramlee, Malaysia’s cinema legend, are screened during the pampering ritual. The hair wash and combing by the soothing hands of the therapist removes dead hair and unblocks hair follicles while the massage improves blood circulation and releases tension in the scalp. The finale, consisting of a fresh zingy lime and floral rinse, is invigorating and beautifully scented.
