How it works:
- Opening: a local tells you how he used to have the same problems as you (e.g. hair loss, grey hair). He then claims to have solved it with some herbs or miracle product.
- Set-up: he brings you to a shop to buy shampoo, oil and what have you. You are then brought to a shop where the herbalist mixes these products along with some herbs into a concoction of 15 doses. An inflated bill (price x dose) is then demanded for this concoction.
Places to beware:
- Dubai: Meena Bazaar, Bur Dubai
