“My hair is so dry”. “I am going to be bald by the time I turn 30!” It isn’t very rare to come across people complaining about their hair problems. We have all been had our fair share of bad hair days, however for residents in the UAE these days seem to arrive quite often. Hair loss, dandruff, dull color and dryness are some of the issues faced by a huge part of the population. Several people complain that the health of their hair has deteriorated when they moved to the UAE.
Hair loss is absolutely normal. A person will lose between 50 to 100 hairs daily, an everyday occurrence as 90% of an individual’s hair is in the growth phase and 10% is in the shedding phase at any given time. However, any significant change that alters the normal growth cycle of hair, or permanently damages the roots of the hair (the follicles), can result in excessive hair loss of over 100 hairs a day.
The weather is definitely an aggravating factor. Due to the hot and humid weather most of us shampoo our hair every day; this in turn strips the scalp of its natural oils and causes dehydrated, brittle hair. Sun, chlorine and air conditioning are all agents that further cause drying of the hair. Also heat and humidity can make hair look frizzy. In the heat, the cuticle tends not to lie as flat as it should, so it doesn’t reflect the light as effectively.
Hair loss, frizzy locks and dull color are problems for many here, and the most obvious culprit is the desalinated water. The water we use here is hard (which means soap won’t lather properly in it). Experts say the high levels of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, nitrate, potassium and sodium can lead to hair loss and skin allergies.
It’s not enough to just have a stylish hairdo or get your hair color regularly touched up – if your hair isn’t healthy, it’s bound to cause a huge dent in your fabulous factor. The problem is, most of us struggle with hair issues that just refuse to go away. If you’re tired of trying everything but still struggling with dull hair, don’t worry, BasharaCare will help you get that healthy, shiny mane back in no time.
