Hair Loss in Dubai: Can Shower Filters Reduce PPM?

Can Shower Filters Reduce PPM?Name: Charlotte

Question: I have been told that you can purchase a shower head attachment to reduce PPM of your water, is this true? If so where can I purchase one from? I live in Dubai and my friends and I are becoming increasingly worried at the amount of our hair that is coming out.

Answer: I am not familiar with, or an expert on, shower filters. You can buy attachments that supposedly reduce chlorine, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), THMs (Trihalomethanes) and lead or copper in the water, but I would not be able to recommend to you a particular one or tell you where you might find one in Dubai. However, what I can tell you is that there are ways to manage your hair loss.

A lot of people wonder, Does Desalinated Water Cause Hair Loss? It is highly possible that water quality, with regards to TDS (total dissolved solids) and PPM (parts per million), can have a negative effect on skin and hair. However, hair loss is often a dynamic problem and it could be affected by other factors as well. Usually there is an underlying genetic susceptibility that is triggered by something, perhaps the water, and by addressing the real reason for hair loss rather than the trigger, most men and women are able to control and even reverse the damage.

Hair loss treatment initially requires a diagnosis conducted by a specialist. All facets of medical and family histories, lifestyle, and personal habits and preferences must be taken into account to formulate a programme that is going to be, not only the most beneficial in providing the greatest result for an individual, but also safe and appropriate to their unique situation.

After years of helping men and women combat hair loss, The Belgravia Centre’s growing number of hair loss success stories is testament to the effectiveness of this approach when dealing with most types of male and female hair loss conditions.

Came across this article and thought I'd put my two pence work in! I bought a shower filter for exactly this reason recently and found that it did wonders for my hair loss (though I'm not in Dubai!).
