it has always been a cycle for me to lose hair occasionally, specially when stressed, or when my hormones are going particularly wild.
anyway, the masseuse said i should get calamansi and rub it into my scalp before i sleep. she swears by it.
so i thought i'd use technology (the internet) to research superstition (or so i thought). apparently there's scientific basis for her claims, which i will not get into at the moment. but i will quote a post in a forum of pinoys in japan. this is from user "puting tainga" and i quote:
Ayon sa isang doctor, if you have balakubak, it means you need more Vitamin B.
Corn, wakame (the seaweed), are the things you can get Vitamin B easily. (At saka mura. Mahal ang mga gamot o supplements.)
As for the hair loss, read the Bible and be comforted.
When the bad kids teased Elisha for his baldness, two bears appeared and killed them all. (2 Hari 2:23-24)
The hairs of your head are all numbered. (Mateo 10:30)
I hope this will help you.
made my morning. hope it makes yours. :)
