If we consider the situation of India, the condition of water in almost every part of India is very poor. The water consists of base and salts which is very dangerous for the hair. Also men in India are advised to wear helmet while riding 2 wheelers as well as to the workers during work for safety measures. During this time, the sweat creating in scalp gets trapped in the scalp making the scalp weaker to hold the hair. As a result of which the hair loss for men occurs.
