I am a 65-year-old woman and came on aliya seven years ago with a thick mop of hair. During the first two months, my hair shed. I noticed many Israeli women, including my own stepdaughter, who have very thin hair. A Russian-immigrant doctor told me that during the first year after she arrived, she lost half the volume of her hair. We hosted a 19-year-old German volunteer who was here for nine months; her parents visited and were shocked by her thin hair. Israelis will tell you the problem is the hot climate, but I come from northeast Australia, where it was hotter and more humid than here.

I believe there is something missing in the water we drink and would like to find out what it is so I can put it back.  – G.T., Kiryat Tivon
