Solution for the damaged hair

Solution for the damaged hair

Previously, Pak Dalis told LIFT that her attempts to straighten and colour her hair caused damage. Today, it looks dry all the time and her hair sometimes falls out. Ke Taing Eng, skin and hair specialist in Clinic Makalin, has provided a solution.

Ke said her problem resulted from her use of hair products. Her use of these products caused the long term damage because it exposed her hair to too many chemicals. She suggested that Dalis reduce the number of hair products that she uses.

For a young girl in her 20s, she should not have the problem of hair falling out without any external cause. The hair dye will weaken the hair and make easier for it to break.

“Besides colouring the hair, using the hair treatment products is also the reason for the hair loss, which is one of the main reasons customers come to our clinic,” she said.

For the dry hair, many people tend to use the hair treatment products that can make the hair look soft temporarily. However, overuse of the product can make the hair become dry in the long term.

There are some other factors that Ke said could have contributed to the hair loss. “Sometimes when we have sleeping problems or other stress, it can also cause your hair to fall out. It is better to cure it from the root of the cause. Don’t think too much about everyday problems, and maintain a healthy sleep regimine.”

She said Dalis should reduce the amount of hair treatment she has been using to once every two weeks or so. It is also better for her to switch to products that contain natural ingredients, such as apple oil.

It may be popular to use chemicals to change the appearance of hair. While the good changes are temporary, the damage done lasts for a long time.
