Solution to Hair fall problem

Citridora Oil
Many of us face the hair fall problem in Dubai. There is a quick remedy that I will share with you all.
We need to use Citridora Oil. Not heard of it? Eucalyptus Citridora oil is obtained by the steam distillation method, from the leaves of a flowering tree from the myrtle family or Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus Citridora essential oil is famous for its sterile property and also used as an antiseptic. The Citridora Essential oil looks pale yellow and some are colorless like water. Natural Citridora Oil has dazzling fast smell of rose-citronella aroma. 
All you have to do to prepare this oil for hair fall is-
Mix 25 grams of Citridora Oil with 100 grams of Coconut Oil and apply on your scalp.
This also helps to check premature falling and greying of hair. It makes the hair smooth and soft. It prevents and cures dandruff and helps to keep the scalp cool.

Alternative to body brushes

Did you know that your body bath brushes can accumulate lot of bacteria? Being used a lot of times while a shower, they can remain moist for a long period of time and if kept in still water, they can accumulate bacteria quickly. 
What do we do instead? You can use the normal scrubbing sponges (that are used for dish washing and available in any store) which have yellow color on one side and green on the other. Use them gently on your body when taking a shower and you can use it 2-3 times and dispose it off. It is more hygienic and affordable. Don’t be surprised, lot of celebrities too use these sponges.
