No doubt about it, we have to use a shower filter.

No doubt about it, chlorine is a toxic chemical. It is used in treating water primarily for the reduction and elimination of biological agents of all shapes, size and form. These are the bacteria and viruses present in our public water systems.

No doubt about it, we are exposed to Chlorine practically all our waking hours. It could prove harmful to us when we drink it and when it is absorbed into our skin and inhaled into your lungs when we take that refreshing shower. Some estimates indicate that, “shower steam” right in our very bathrooms can contain a hundred times more over the amount of chlorine than the water we consumed. This is because chlorine evaporates from the water at low temperatures. Thus every time we take a bath with unfiltered water we are exposed to inhaling and absorbing chlorine into our bodies simultaneously.

No doubt about it, such conditions may arise or be aggravated due to constant chlorine exposure;

Respiratory Conditions (nose, throat, lungs, sinuses): Asthma, bronchitis
Hair: Dry, brittle
Skin: Dry, flaking, dandruff, itching, rashes (especially with infants and children)
Eye irritations and other conditions

No doubt about it, these concerns can be easily addressed.

No doubt about it, it’s quite obvious, it is a necessity to have a shower filter installed in our bath rooms to remove the harmful effects of chlorine in the water we use. Vivandi shower filters, remain the best in the UAE & the Gulf region markets, in terms of sheer numbers alone. For years it has been a part of the lives of expatriates and locals alike. Bathing in filtered shower water leaves their hair & scalp healthy, skin and body soft and supple.

No doubt about it, you should get to know more about our shower filters, we even have a website specially made for that purpose, please visit


Pregnancy Induced Effluvium

Pregnancy may be a key life event where hair loss can develop. Hair loss may begin during the last trimester or it may begin after child birth. Hair loss is often a form of telogen effluvium but sometimes pregnancy can promote the onset of (androgenetic alopecia) in susceptible women.

Post partum alopecia

Postpartum alopecia is quite a common form of hair loss. In non-pregnant women about 10% to 15%of hair follicles are in a telogen resting state. During the late stages of pregnancy more and more hair follicles enter an anagen growth stage until shortly before birth 5% or fewer hair follicles are in telogen. After child birth up to 60% of these anagen stage hair follicles switch off and enter telogen all at the same time. The hair loss may become progressively worse for up to four months after child birth and it may persist for several more months as the hair follicles reorganize themselves and begin activity again.
Pregnancy involves prolonged hormone levels, particularly estrogen. Estrogen is known stimulate hair follicles and maintain them in an anagen growing state. So in pregnancy the hair follicles are not allowed to cycle as they normally would. The hair follicles are forced to keep active even though they might normally want to have a rest as part of the hair cycle. After child birth the estrogen levels suddenly drop and hair follicles are finally allowed to enter telogen all at the same time.

Pregnancy induced effluvium

Pregnant women are eating for two and a growing embryo consumes a lot of energy and nutrients. Deficiencies in certain vitamins and/or minerals can be the result if a diet is not adjusted to increase intake of required nutrients. Telogen effluvium type hair loss may develop.

Hair Loss & Childbirth

Women around the globe face the specter of suffering the “human molt” which means hair shedding only to be replaced by new strands.

Pointing to educational & career pressures, more women postpone having babies until their late 30s and early 40s. These women have far more greater chance that their hair will thin as a result.

Regular Hair & Scalp Massage

Rubbing down your hair & scalp regularly while taking a shower in chlorine filtered water and using a deep cleansing shampoo. This makes sure your scalp retain its natural moisture and allow it to be free of residues from chlorine in water and dirt from constant outdoor exposure.

Keep your hair & scalp free from chemical based styling products

Residues from such can combine with accumulated dirt that may clog follicles, thereby prohibiting hair growth. It is necessary to do away with hair products since it hampers hair & scalp wellness.

Use an Effective Chemical Free DHT Blocker

DHT causes increased hair loss and gradual miniaturization of the hair follicles. Good thing there are a lot of hair loss formula medication in the market today. Just be sure to be on a look out for chemical free solutions such as Revivogen, it effectively blocks the DHT from doing damage and it is proven to reactivate follicles and stimulate hair growth. While the ones laced with chemicals, more often than not have side effects.

Experiencing Hair Fall During Summer Season

Sometimes our hair fall condition could get even worse at certain seasons, especially during summer.

With the intense heat, the pores on the skin’s surface tend to make the skin spread in releasing sweat. This makes our hair weak and prone to falling off. Most often than not, we also have itching and irritation in our scalp which comes along with the hair. If left untreated, constant scratching could cause the scalp and could possibly lead to infections which could make hair loss get much worse to begin with.

Here are some tips you can apply in going around hair loss this summer. Start with a de-chlorinated shower on a daily basis, use Vivandi shower filters from the US, the best in the UAE market. Filtered shower water allows your hair & scalp to breathe and rinses it off of dirt totally.. Make sure you use a deep cleansing shampoo, that is gentle on the scalp and delivers bio-active nutrients that create healthy environment for hair to grow. Vivandi has Revivogen and Tricomax shampoo to address these needs.

Protect your hair & scalp from the scorching sunlight. Exposure to extreme outdoor conditions leaves hair coarse & dry. Simply put on a hats, caps or scarves to do the trick. To bring the level of scalp protection up a notch, apply Tricomax scalp cleansing mask to remove the impurities & debris accumulated on your scalp.

This may sound ironic though, but particular season of blistering heat may be a nuisance due to excessive hair fall, which on the other hand makes your hair grow at an even faster rate. Here’s why, our body is known to have a more efficient blood circulation during winter or any other season.  The humid temperature increases our body heat which allows it to work faster, thereby making our cells develop quicker, which leads to hair growth.

See to it that you take all the necessary precautions to avoid hair loss during this summer. All we could do is reduce damage to our hair & scalp since the seasons come with nature itself.
