Hair Clinic in Bangalore

Oiling is a Myth…….

says Dr. Shahid Shamsher, the best hair doctor in Bangalore at Dr Health, the Hair and Skin Clinic in Bangalore.

1. I have hair fall every since coming to Bangalore. People told me it’s due to the local water, so I started using mineral water to wash the hair. But that has made no change. Please help.

Dr Shahid Shamsher, trichologist  at dr health, the skin and hair clinic, bangalore says,

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.

2. My mother forces me to apply oil at least 2-3 times per week. But in fact I notice that the fall increases when I apply oil. Is it true that oiling the scalp is compulsory for nourishing the hair?

Dr Shahid Shamsher, trichologist  at dr health, the skin and hair clinic, bangalore says,

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.

3. I have been having sticky dandruff since years. Tried every anti-dandruff shampoo available, but to no effect. How can I get rid of this?

Dr Shahid Shamsher, trichologist  at dr health, the skin and hair clinic, bangalore says,

Well, first of all, you can’t. It will never go, 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.
