Whenever I go to the park for sketching, some people stop and talk to me. Last weekend, a Sri Lankan couple came to me and we talked for quite a long time.
Finally they showed their photos and their parents' photos as well. I wanted to borrow all the photos, because all of them were really beautiful.
The man, Malcolm, showed his photo. He said that it had been taken 15 years ago. There was a big difference between each photo and that was his hair.
He said since he came to UAE, his fair had gone thinner.
Certainly, his forehead got very wide.
He is still 39 years old.
He said seriously: "Because the water of UAE is very harmful for my hair". I was suspicious but he was really serious so I couldn't say anything.
''The water from Al Ain, though it is desalinated, chemicals are added into it later which is not good for our hair.'' I wanted to ask him if this had been proven scientifically, but I decided not to.
