はげになる?その2





公園で、絵を描いていると、いろんなひとが声をかけていく。
先週は、スリランカ人のカップルと長話。
ついに、彼らは、自分の写真を見せ、家族の写真までみせる。
どれも、絵になるいい写真ばかり。
そのマルコムという彼は、結婚したころの15年前の写真では、ふさふさの頭髪である。
彼は、UAEにきてから頭髪がさみしくなったという。
額の後退ははげしい。
彼はまだ39歳。



20004年の津波の大被害の後、ここに来たという。
彼は大真面目にいう。
UAEの水が悪いから、はげたんだと。
ほんまかいなーといったが、
彼の真剣なまなざしに圧倒され、ほんまやのん?といってしまった。

そうや、このアルアインの水は、海の水から塩をとったものをつかっていて、安全なように化学物質がはいってるねん。それが頭髪に悪いねん。といいきる。
かなり額から、後退した頭髪をなんども指差して見せられると、なるほどーーといってしまう。
それ,科学的に証明されとんの?
とはいえんかった。

公園で絵を描いてると、
いろんなひとがいろんな人生を語っていく。





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.
