Investing time and energy on a job that demands flexibility and open-mindedness without promise of monetary or material rewards surely is not the path men--and women--would normally take.

But this is the very vocation Alex Eduque built her life around.

For the community builder, knowing that she has made but a small difference in the life of someone else is "unparalleled and priceless."

She boldly faces unwanted bureaucracies and braves natural calamities and disasters all in the name of altruism.

Eduque's drive for volunteerism was given a head start when she joined Habitat for Humanity in 2005. The then 15-year-old Eduque helped build homes for hundreds of families in Baseco Compound, Manila. 

While pursuing tertiary education in the United States, the aspiring humanitarian decided to organize MovEd, a non-government organization that brings early childhood education in marginalized communities. Here, children realize their potentials and build their dreams early on in their lives. 

Eduque says being given the opportunity to serve others and having them welcome her into their lives entails a responsibility to not let them down. 

"I think that notion of the responsibility that comes with the utmost privilege is my prime motivator in overcoming whatever obstacle is thrown my way," the advocate said.

She says that her upbringing with strong women contributes to her strength and confidence to push through.

Despite her busy schedule, she still tries to find the balance between her work and personal time.

Eduque divides her time between improving herself and the community she is serving. With this, stress is inevitable.

One consequence of stress is hair fall, and to prevent this from worsening, she allocates enough time to take care of herself.

She adds that the hair is a crucial part of one's appearance so she makes sure that it gets proper nourishment by using the right product.

Now, she doesn't have to worry about hair fall with Dove Hair Fall Range's potent formulation.

Living free from the interference of hair fall makes Eduque feel blessed and gives her an extra mood boost to continue with her advocacy.

You can also protect yourself from hair fall with strong and potent solutions like Dove's Hair Fall Range, which has dual action protection of locking hair from the roots and strengthening strands. Leave your hair fall worries behind to lead a stronger, fuller life.
