[Sponsored Post] Silkpro VITAIR Shampoo Series!

[Sponsored Post]



This Thursday, drop by our benches to collect your welfare pack. For Psychology Appreciation Week 2015, Silkpro has kindly sponsored vouchers to their online store at specially for our members!

Have you heard of Silkpro’s new VITAIR shampoo series? Well, listen up, because you should hear about it! VITAIR shampoos are rich in essential vitamins, with a breakthrough sulphate-free and silicone-free formula.

What does sulphate-free and silicone-free mean for your hair? Well, ordinary shampoos contain sulphate because of the lathering effect it gives. But, sulphate actually strips moisture and colour off the hair and scalp, resulting in irritation and dryness or fizziness of hair. Silicone is responsible for seemingly shiny and smooth hair, but prolonged exposure leads to a build-up of a synthetic coating that weighs down hair. So VITAIR is putting an end to this, through it’s sulphate and silicone-free formula, promising to deep cleanse hair and scalp to ensure that tresses stay smoother, lighter, and more manageable after every wash.

The series comes in four different types, each addressing different hair and scalp conditions.

Daily Balance is the series’ base shampoo that is suitable for all scalp and hair types. It is designed to be used alternately with these specialised VITAIR shampoos:

Dandruff Control provides cooling relief from itchiness on dandruff-prone scalps. It helps eliminate the apperance of unsightly white flakes.

Frizz Control delivers intensive moisturisation and colour protection for dry and colour- treated hair.

Oil Control is designed for deep cleansing and to give relief from itchiness on oil-clogged scalps. It reduces the risk of developing limp hair.

The VITAIR series is avaliable in the forms of a shampoo, a daily treatment masque, and a hair tonic concentrate. Find out more at

Psychology Appreciation Week! (PAW) AY2015/16 Semester 1


Hi dear Psychology Society members,

How has the start of the week been for you? Here’s a reminder that welfare pack giveaways for PAW starts on this coming Thursday, 22nd October, till Friday, 23rd October! We’ll be at the AS6 walkway benches 17-19. Do remember to bring your membership card along in order to receive the welfare packs! For nonmembers, you can sign up on the spot as well, and receive the packs!

Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect:

Wear Your Psychology Shirt!
For the entire week, wear your Psychology shirt on any day (or days) to show your appreciation and support for Psychology! We recommend you to wear it on Thursday. Let’s all fill FASS with our amazing shirts!

Stop by our benches to write your dedications to our amazing Psychology lecturers! We’ll provide the paper, and deliver it to them, so all you need to do is to express your gratitude to them, and we’ll do the rest.

Welfare Pack Collection
Collect your welfare packs at AS6 walkway, benches 17-19! Welfare pack collection will only be held on Thursday and Friday. Membership cards must be presented, or sign-up on the spot to receive a pack.

Hunt for the Golden Paws
Want more goodies? Find the golden paws that we have hidden at various locations in FASS! Hold on to it, and present it to us when you collect your welfare pack (present your membership card too) in order to receive even more freebies! There are only a few paws hidden around school, so start the hunt NOW! ;)

Invisible Rope Experiment
If you have some time to kill before your lecture/ tutorial, just grab a few of your friends and start holding the ‘rope’ randomly at AS6 walkway. Then get your friends to start stepping over the rope repeatedly. If it happens often enough we’ll just watch this amazing conformity experiment (hopefully) come to life! Our Exco members will always be at the booth in front of the Psych notice board along AS6 (where the T-junction outside CLB is) and we will be there to help if you need us! Let’s all join in to this, and show the entire school, how amazing Psychology is in predicting and explaining everyday behaviour!

That’s all for PAW! Looking forward to seeing you this Thursday. :D

Welcoming the 10th Executive Committee

Dearest Members of the NUS Psychology Society,

After our Annual General Meeting on the 3rd of September and Internal Elections on the 6th, we are proud to present to you the 10th Executive Committee who will be serving you in AY15/16!

Chan Tsin Damien President
Teng Tao Xuan Dorothy Vice-President
Ong Shu Qing Julia Treasurer
Ng Siew Zhen Jeslyn Honorary General Secretary
Ong Wei Jie Assistant Honorary General Secretary
Ye Zhao’en Director of Academics
Lee Jia Ying Trena Director of Publicity

In this new academic year, you can be sure to look forward to the usual Psychology Appreciation Week, Academic Talks, Lab Tours and the annual Psychology Camp. One of our directions this year is to cater to as many members of the Society as possible, so we will be introducing initiatives from post-graduate mentoring for the graduating seniors to specialised topical talks for interested juniors. Through this, we hope to allow all of our members to interact with each other and share valuable experiences.

Of course, the 10th Executive Committee will not be able to achieve our fullest potential without your help. Psychology is a huge major in FASS, but that’s no reason to stop us from forming a close-knit community where close friendships can be forged and resources can be shared. To help us serve you better, we will truly appreciate your participation in events and, more importantly, your feedback about them. These events are specially planned to benefit our members in terms of knowledge and experience, as well as to enhance your journey in pursuing Psychology as an undergraduate here in FASS, so feel free to sign up and we look forward to seeing you there!

If you are interested in expanding your horizons beyond what you learn in lessons, members are welcome to volunteer at our events with organisations we have partnerships with such as the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). We will also be recruiting committee members for Psychology Camp from December 2015 to February 2016, so stay tuned for that!

Please continue to support us this new academic year. Let us know your interest in contributing or offer us your valuable feedback and suggestions by sending an email to We wish you all the best in this academic year!

Do check out the 10th Executive Committee President Message as well, which is available here.

Best Regards,
Chan Tsin Damien (Mr)

10th Executive Committee
