Hair loss warning: Doctors reveal the dangerous truth behind popular hair loss remedy
25th February 2020
The craze in question involves pouring chilli oil or sprinkling chilli powder on your head to stimulate hair growth.
Doctors are condemning this practice as not only false but damaging to the scalp and leading to greater hair loss.
One prominent critic, hair transplant surgeon Dr Bessam Farjo, is warning people not to risk injury by trying out these suggested homemade concoctions.
“It’s highly unlikely anyone who tries this will see any results”. “There is a risk of causing skin irritation and inflammation to the scalp and subsequent hair loss,” said Dr Farjo.
