They are urging people to refrain from tipping chilli oil or chilli powder onto their heads. This is despite online devotees claiming it will help restore their luscious locks. Medics warn that this could cause burns, skin reactions and even hair loss.
Leading hair transplant surgeon Dr Bessam Farjo, from Farjo Hair Institute, said: “It’s highly unlikely anyone who tries this will see any results, but there is a risk of causing skin irritation and inflammation to the scalp and subsequent hair loss.”
