Humidity, bringing life...
I knew it, I knew it!!
It could not be only me…
In India, hairs have a field day!! (It is a subject that I already discussed a lot, but in French mainly.)
I realized rather quickly that they never stop growing, and super fast with that. In short, in India, women spend their time epilating - except for those (more or less a vast majority) who have fallen out with epilation and accept themselves hairy.
And I have just found the explanation: “The hair grows under the effect of moisture. There can be up to 3% difference in length between the growth of hair in dry medium and in moist environment. ”
And guess what? In Mumbai, “mean relative humidity for an average year is recorded as 74% and on a monthly basis it ranges from 67% in February & December to 85% in July & August.”
Good. If there were only hairs that were growing, I would be happy…
During monsoon particularly, any leather that has not been treated perfectly will get covered by a film of some brown thing.
Or the other day, I was cooking spaghettis (from a pack I had opened some few weeks back). I suspected there was something wrong when I noticed they were more white than yellow. I nevertheless put them in the water and some kind of herbs (like Italian seasoning) started to float on the surface. I rinsed and tasted, that had a disgusting mint taste. I threw the pasta away.
My ayurvedic profile (PITTA) states that: “In order to be balanced, Pittas should remain cool, avoiding excess heat, steam or humidity.”
Here, everything has been said!
