    Hair breakage - what’s in the water?

    just calling you out on your unprovoked rudeness and bullshit, why didn't you just not say anything instead of being rude. by not saying anything back it gives the impression that its ok for you to be rude. so that was me letting you know that its a consequence of your behaviour. far to much of it on here when i only asked a simple question?

    Alternatively I could go down the not washing my hair route for 4 months

    Ah you mean กะละมัง English translations are sometimes difficult to understand, yes this is a possibility

    Valid point but not applicable in my case as I bring my own shampoo and conditioner, I am a hairdresser myself and have had to sort out a few nightmare hair procedures

    Haha I think it might come to this!

    I hear you this has happened to me before, I suspect with the water systems in the tanks it’s a combination of chlorine and chloramine, possibly other chemicals too

    Hair breakage - what’s in the water?

    I wondered how long it would be before someone was going to be rude. Obviously I know how to run water off into a receptacle, if one is travelling around then it is not really convenient to travel with a bucket, and it’s laughable to think that there is enough water in a a sink to rinse ones hair. My best guess is you’re an bored bitter old man trawling the forums who has lost the majority of his hair anyway and has no realisation of how devastating it is for a female to see hand fulls of hair fallout every time they wash it so thank for your understanding. No idea what gallamong means but I imagine it’s derogatory, although after a quick search, although not technically 2 words, it does make a good google whack entry. Shouldn’t imaging it will stop you but maybe best to go on the adage that if you can’t say anything nice or constructive don’t say anything at all.

    If only I was in charge of my own water filter this is what I would do but unfortunate I stay I managed places

    Hair breakage - what’s in the water?

    Hi, yes others have suggested this but when staying in hotel/condo/guesthouse how can I let the water sit? It’s coming direct from the tank to the shower head? Is there a way you can think of? Sorry if I am being thick here

    Thanks, this is probably the most helpful response so far, as even if I find out what’s in the water there is not much I can do about it, thank you

    Water tanks/system chemicals and side effects

    Thanks for this insight, I have posted a longer explanation of why I was asking. I think I’m gonna have to start washing my hair in bottled water lol

    Water tanks/system chemicals and side effects

    I am asking because I live in Thailand (Chiang Mai) 4 months every winter, have done for 16 years but 2 years ago my hair started to “fallout” whilst here, after about 3 weeks of returning home it stopped, same thing happened this year. 2 friends of mine have just returned, 1 from Chiang rai where hers started to fall out whilst there and another from koh Yao noi and Chiang Mai. They are reporting that their hair is “breaking off” and not falling out, so it got me examining mine again and actually on very close inspection it has indeed broken off, you can see where’s it’s snapped a cm or 2 from the scalp, all of us are reporting it is on the top and the front like when you tip tour hear back in the shower. During the last 2 years where I stay they have installed huge water tanks on the roof and I have seen the tubs of chemicals laying around and have smelled the chemicals whilst sitting up there . I am a hairdresser by trade and have always kept my hair in amazing condition, I am not a sunworshiper, in fact I try and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and I wear a hat a fair amount of the time so I know it’s not sun damage before anyone suggests that. My friend who has returned from koh yao noi is having a particularly hard time of it as quite a high percentage of her hair has snapped off. I feel something sinister is going on, so am trying to get to the bottom of it? Any suggestions?
