Oiling is a Myth

Oiling is a Myth

Change of water does cause hair loss in most cases. It’s not a question of good water or bad water, just the change of water is enough to trigger off hair fall. The good news however is that in most cases the fall subsides on its own as the scalp adjusts to the new environment. However if the fall persists for more than 90 days, then you need to seek medical assistance for the same.

Oiling the scalp is compulsory for nourishing the hair, is a complete MYTH.

It’s not true at all. The hair gets its nourishment just like the rest of the body does, through the food you eat. Most men have plenty of hair growing in the moustache and beard. Have you ever heard of any man applying oil on their face to make it grow? And yet that hair grows very well, does it not? Unfortunately however, tradition is not always easily countered with logic.

Another important thing is using anti-dandruff shampoo thinking that one has sticky dandruff will never help you get rid of it because it is not dandruff. The sticky substance on your scalp is the oil secreted by your scalp. It is known as sebum and it will be always be there. The only choice you have is to maintain it correctly, so that it does not lead to scalp infections and hair fall.
