    Dear Friends,

    I am suffering from serious hairfall/hairbreakage ever since i moved to UAE.

    I have tried switching over to herbal shampoos & other anti hair breakage conditioners... but not help.

    At present I am using HImalaya herbals shampoo, Pantene Anti breakage conditioner & Rich Feel Jaborandi oil

    I would like to ask other fellow IL's .. esp ladies from the Middle East

    Do you guys too face such a similar problem due to chlorinated water.
    If yes, How do you combat it??

    Hi,

    1.using a chlorine shower filter can reduce the hair loss if you think chlorinated water is causing the problem.
    2.Apply warm coconut oil at least once a week and leave it half an hour and then shampoo.
    3. Avoid using shampoo and conditioners daily.

    Above are some quick remedies.
    Happy new year,
    Lena.

    Hi daffodil

    I too faced similar problems after i came to UAE.

    -I am using Nyle anti hairfall oil. After using this my hair fall reduced drastically.

    -avoid taking head bath in hot water. Water can be warm. But it shouldnt be too hot.

    -if there is dandruff problem try using Triben AD a solution for dandruff treatment.Apply that before taking head bath. Leave for 10 mins and wash and use Shampoo.

    Hope this helps.

    Wish you a very Happy New Year!!:party

    hi friends

    ever since I came to saudi, my hair started falling.....never stopped. I tried all kinds of oils and shampoos. even my forehead became almost bald. imagine my situation. i almost started crying.

    I just tried Liv-on once, i felt that my hair-fall reduced drastically, i'm not seeing even a hair while combing my hair and started to grow long, eventhough it's not dense, i feel little better. i'm continuing liv-on. it works really. cheap and best. after you give shampoo bath to your hair, apply either wet or before combing dry also. no probs at all.Thank God I found this remedy before I became fully bald!

    uma.

    well dafodil
    im from kuwait and i had a similar problem..its so depressing to see your hair fall off like that..after months of painstakingly growing it!well my bro in law suggested that i fill a bucket of water abt an hr bfore showering.. so that the chlorine goes at the bottom and then u scoop the water and wash ur hair..try it..it mite help..but make sure u keep watch of the bucket if u have small kidos around..and also u can try diluting ur shampoo..maybe what u r using is strong for ur hair..so dilute the shampoo in water and wash ur hair.hope it works..cheers!

    Hi Kashmira,

    Thanks for ur FB.
    I always dilute my shampoo in an empty bottle before using it.
    Himalaya Herbals i guess is the mildest of all chemical shampoos.
    But maybe I coud try the other soln of filling water before using to allow settlement of chlorine.
    Thanks once more..

    Hi Daffodil, ,
    This is a problem initially even i had too much hairfall then after a while it subsided by itself , one reason could be that i started using lukewarm water for my hair and always use coconut oil for hair (the plain one).Make sure u oil ur hair atleast once a week, and only after the hair becomes fully dry use a comb. Dont use shampoo more often only when u put oil shampoo ur hair and that too with some very mild shampoo and dont forget to condition it always.

    Regards
    Vrinda
