Hairy Tales!!

Last week we had some Dr. Batra's Hair Wellness Camp at work. I had thought we would be given some nice and useful tips to keep our hair healthy. So excitedly I went to get my hair checked. I was the second person to go. There were three people and they had an equipment using which we could see our hair and scalp on a screen. They had a kind of rod-shaped camera which had to be moved over our heads, and the region covered by that camera got displayed on the screen. The lady placed the camera on the top of my head and the image that flashed on the screen was scary. I could see my skin-coloured scalp and   few(almost countable), distantly-spaced, thick and thin hair-strands standing on it like wild grass!! The image was so majestically zoomed in that for a moment I wondered where have the hair gone!! I actually touched my head to see if I had any hairless patch!! The lady mentioned that I needed hair-treatment as some of my hair-strands were quite thin and density of hair in the upper part of the head was too less. She even used the term "Male-Baldness" for my less dense hair!! Funnily the doctor who gave me details of the treatment had so less hair on his head that I felt like asking him to take the treatment first!!

And then one after another many people went to get their hair-checked and all of them had similar stories to share. All the people were asked to go for hair-treatment for problems like hairfall, thin hair, whitening, dandruff, fungal-infection, hormonal-imbalance, improper-diet, etc etc. Some people were asked if they were married or not. If yes, then for how long and if no, then when they would get married. God knows how marriage affects our hair!! 

Some people were told they had healthy hair. Since the job involves a lot of stress they should undergo the treatment before their stressful job damages their hair. In short they meant, we should take crocin before fever attacks us, we should apply balm on our forehead before we get a headache, and we should wear a plaster before we fracture our bone!!

The conclusion of the camp was all the employees badly needed Dr. Batra's hopeless hair-treatment. And so instead of some nice and useful tips, all we got to hear and narrate were funny hairy tales!! 


  1. Funny hairy tales! If you can sell hair, why not:)

    1. Yes, why not.. but these people were so desperate to give us treatment that later on they called each one of us nearly 4-5 times for the same!!
