Creating Waves of Awareness

Drug addiction, tobacco addiction, alcohol addiction, etc. are very common health hazards. There is one more addiction, more common in India, especially states like Kerala – Oil addiction, i.e. addiction in using excess oil on the scalp. A few drops of oil on the scalp is good for the hair. It can also prevent Plica polonica. But when it is used in excess, it creates several problems. When patients come to us, we often notice excess oil on the scalp. When their scalp is examined, we must wash the hands with soap! These people often suffer from allergies and pain in the cervical muscles, especially after sun exposure. Bathing during midday creates more troubles, especially among the women. Excess oil actually forms the water resistant barrier on the scalp. Our skin naturally secrets sebum that can protect the skin. But, even after repeated suggestions to many patients, they are not ready to follow – they keep on pouring oils on the scalp. Instead of wasting money for oils and cosmetics, they should take healthy nutritious diet and sufficient amount of water for a healthy hair. Medicines (both internal and external) can also help whenever necessary.

I remember my mother used to put oil in my hair only when she washed my hair!
