Hair Fall Treatment at Home in hindi - बाल गिरने का घरेलू इलाज

Hair Fall Treatment at Home in hindi - बाल गिरने का घरेलू इलाज

बालों की एहमियत भला कौन अनजान है। बाल हमारी सुंदरता में अहम किरदार निभाते हैं। जिनके घने लम्बे सुंदर लहराते बाल हों उनकी शक्ल कुछ कम अच्छी हो तब भी उनका कॉन्फिडेंस बरकरार रहता है। बालों पर कितने ही गीत गजल लिखे जा चुके हैं जो हमारे लिए अपनी एहमियत बयां करते हैं। बालों को श्रृंगार का खास हिस्सा माना जाता है। कई बार वे लोग जिनके सर पर बाल नहीं वे सरेआम लोगों के बीच मे शर्मिंदा हो जाते हैं। खासकर तब जब वह व्यक्ति महिला हो। उनके चेहरे पर एक पछतावा साफ नजर आता है कि काश इन बालों को गिरते समय रोकने के उपाय कर लिए होते।
आजकल कम उम्र से ही लोगों के बाल गिरने लगते हैं और बालों की इस परेशानी से कोई व्यक्ति विशेष नहीं बल्कि महिला पुरुष बड़े छोटे सब इसके शिकार हैं। हालांकि हेयर स्पेशलिस्ट का कहना है कि रोजाना 50 से 100 बालों का झड़ना आम बात है। लेकिन जब यह संख्या बढ़ जाती है और बाल पतले होने लगते हैं और गंजा हो जाने की नौबत आ जाती हैं तब उस अवस्था को एलोपीशीआ कहते हैं।

वर्तमान में लोग अस्वस्थ जीवनशैली, खान, पान, प्रदूषित वातावरण, हार्मोनल के बदलाव आदि के कारण कम उम्र में ही इस बीमारी का शिकार हो जाते हैं। और सही समय पर समस्या को अनदेखा करके एक दिन बालविहीन सर के हो जाते हैं। हालांकि बालों को दुबारा पाने के कुछ बाजारू उपचार हैं पर, इनके साइड इफ़ेक्ट और भारी दाम को हर कोई नहीं झेल पाता। पर अब चिंता करने की जरूरत नहीं है। हम आपको बताएंगे कुछ ऐसे घरेलू उपाय जिसे आजमाकर आप अपने बालों के प्रति बेफिक्र हो जाएं। 

1. हिना 
एक कटोरी में 250 एम.एल. सरसों का तेल लें और उसमें 60 ग्राम सूखा और साफ किया हुआ मेंहदी का पत्ते डालकर पत्तियों के पूरा जलने तक उबालें और फिर सूती कपड़े में इस मिश्रण को छान लें। ठंडा होने के बाद हवाबंद जार में इस तेल को डालकर रख दें। नियमित रूप से इस तेल को बालों में लगायें।
एक कप हिना पावडर को एक कप दही में डालकर अच्छी तरह से मिला लें। बालों में इस मिश्रण को लगाकर सूखने के लिए छोड़ दें। उसके बाद पानी से धोने के बाद माइल्ड शैंपू से बालों को धो लें।
हममें बालों को रंगने और कन्डिशनर के रूप में इस्तेमाल करने के लिए आम तौर पर हिना का ही इस्तेमाल किया जाता है। हिना को जब सरसों के तेल के साथ मिलाकर बालों में लगाया जाता है तो यह बालों को मजबूती प्रदान करने के साथ-साथ बालों को झड़ने से रोकते हैं।

2. आंवला 
आंवला के फल को पीस लें या आंवला पावडर का भी इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं। एक कटोरी में दो छोटा चम्मच आंवला का जूस या पावडर लें और उसमें दो छोटा चम्मच नींबू का रस डालकर अच्छी तरह से मिला लें। उसके बाद उस पेस्ट को सिर पर अच्छी तरह से लगाकर सूखने के लिए छोड़ दें। सूखने के बाद गुनगुने गर्म पानी से बालों को धो लें। बालों की झड़ने की समस्या के निदान के लिए आंवला सबसे अच्छे उपचार के रूप में काम करता है। क्योंकि इसमें विटामिन सी और एन्टी ऑक्सिडेंट्स प्रचुर मात्रा में होते हैं। इसको इस्तेमाल तो कर ही सकते हैं साथ ही इसका नियमित रूप से सेवन करने पर भी लाभ मिलता है।

3. अंडा 
एक कटोरी में एक अंडे की सफेदी लें और उसमें एक छोटा चम्मच ऑलिव ऑयल डालकर अच्छी तरह फेंटकर मिला लें। इस मिश्रण को सिर पर और बालों में अच्छी तरह से लगाकर पंद्रह से बीस मिनट के लिए सूखने के लिए छोड़ दें। उसके बाद पानी से बालों को धोने के बाद माइल्ड शैंपू से साफ कर लें।
सल्फर का दूसरा अच्छा स्रोत अंडा होता है, जिसमें प्रोटीन और मिनरल के साथ आयोडिन, फॉस्फोरस, आयरन और जिन्क होता है, जो बालों के विकास के बहुत ज़रूरी होता है। ऑलिव ऑयल के साथ मिलाने पर यह और भी प्रभावकारी हो जाता है।

4. नारियल 
नारियल को पीसकर दूध निकालकर उसमें थोड़ा-सा पानी मिला लें। जहाँ पर बाल पतले हो रहे हैं या गंजे होने के आसार दिख रहें है, उस जगह पर इस दूध से मालिश करें। रात भर यूं ही रहने दें और अगले सुबह पानी से धो लें।
नारियल के तेल से अच्छा दूसरा कोई विकल्प हो ही नहीं सकता है। नारियल के दूध में प्रोटीन, फैट, मिनरलों में पोटाशियम और आयरन होता है जो बालों को झड़ने से रोकता है। नारियल के तेल में भी यही गुण होता है, जो बालों को सिरों से लेकर जड़ों तक मजबूती प्रदान करने के साथसाथ बालों को झड़ने से रोकता है।

5. जपाकुसुम
जपाकुसुम के कुछ फूलों को पीसकर नारियल के तेल में डालकर अच्छी तरह से मिला लें। इस पेस्ट को सर पर और बालों में अच्छी तरह से लगाकर कुछ घंटों के लिए यूं ही छोड़ दें। फिर बालों को पानी से धोने के बाद माइल्ड शैंपू से साफ कर लें।
दक्षिण भारत की महिलाओं के काले घने लम्बे बालों का सीक्रेट है नारियल का तेल और जपाकुसुम होता है। यह बालों को पौष्टिकता प्रदान करने के साथ-साथ रूसी के समस्या से भी राहत दिलाने में मदद करता है। जपाकुसुम फूल का नियमित रूप से इस्तेमाल करने पर बाल झड़ना कम हो जाते हैं।

बताए हुए इन टिप्स को आजमाएं और पाएं घने काले सुंदर बाल, पर ध्यान रहे कई बार बालों की दशा खान पान से प्रभावित होते हैं, इसलिए इन उपायों को अपनाने के साथ ही हेल्दी डाइट और हेल्दी लाइफस्टाइल भी अपनाने की कोशिश करें इसका पॉजिटिव इफ़ेक्ट आप बहुत जल्द महसूस करने लगेंगे।

My name is pranau my problem is heavy hair fall my job is marketing so I travel many city's and eat different food so I loss my hair please suggest me how to reduce my hair fall.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My name is pranau my problem is heavy hair fall my job is marketing so I travel many city's and eat different food so...
In general, you lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day, but the loss is not visible as new hair grow in their place. However, if you lose more than a 100 strands in a day and more than 200 strands on the day you shampoo, you may be suffering from what is known as excessive hair fall. Certain factors or reasons may cause you to lose hair at an alarming rate, which are, 1. Thyroid problems Your thyroid is responsible for your body’s overall functioning. The hormones (primarily T4 and T3), which it produces help in regulating metabolic activities. Problems with your thyroid gland can cause your hormone levels to rise or fall to unhealthy levels, which can result in hair fall. You can improve the functioning of your thyroid gland through a diet rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, protein and Vitamins A, B and C. 2. Scalp infections-Infections of the scalp can also be one of the factors that may cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate. Of the different scalp infections, the ringworm scalp infection is the most common. Although this fungal infection can occur in any part of your body, when it develops on your scalp, you end up losing clumps of hair. Alongside the use of anti-fungal medications, even anti-fungal shampoos and creams can provide you with respite from the problem. 3. Poor diet, Gorging on unhealthy foods or going on a crash diet can result in the lack of essential nutrients in your body, which are required to maintain healthy hair. Furthermore, since hair is made of protein, having a balanced diet consisting of proteins and vitamin- rich foods is a must. 4. Stress gives rise to certain conditions such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (hair loss caused post-pregnancy or surgery) and trichotillomania (an impulsive need to pull your hair out), which can cause you to lose significant amount of hair. To avert a hair loss crisis caused by stress, make it a point to do some simple stress-reducing exercises, such as meditation or breathing exercises. 5. Using hair styling products like hair colours and straighteners can cause you to experience hair fall problems. Your hair not only becomes dull and dry due to their use, but also becomes weak and brittle, leading to a gradual loss of hair. Regular oiling and use of homemade hair masks are some of the ways you can try to counter the negative effects of these hair styling products. 6. The drugs that are used in the treatment of cancer not only destroy the fast-growing cancer cells, but also the healthy blood cells in your body. For this reason, consuming foods that possess cancer-fighting properties (like oatmeal, tomato, almonds, garlic etc) is a sure-shot way of fighting the disease as well as averting any side-effects that may arise because of the treatment. 7. Alopecia areata. Lastly, hair fall can also be caused by alopecia areata, which is a kind of hair loss that takes place when your body’s immune system erroneously attacks your hair follicles, and prevents growth of new hair. 8. Genetics. The origin of your severe hair fall or baldness can be traced back to your ancestors. So, your genes can be a factor behind your hair fall problem. If this is the cause, your body then becomes unable to produce new hair. Apart from the changes that you can make in your lifestyle to address the causes of your hair fall, there are also techniques out there that you can employ to permanently treat your problem, such as platelet rich plasma, mesotherapy, stem cell therapy, ozone activated platelet rich plasma & hair transplant. In order to have healthy volume of hair on your head, the rate of hair loss and replacement should be in tandem. With age, your hair growth cycle shows signs of slowing down and factors like age, disease, and hormonal changes among others affect the pace at which an individual hair follicle moves through the 3 phases of the hair cycle. A disruption in your hair cycle can give rise to loss of hair that’s rapid and unexpected. Hair loss or alopecia can affect both men and women. So what can cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate? The reasons behind hair loss could be many, but here are 6 major ones: 1. Lack of protein in your diet When you exclude protein from your diet, your body starts to conserve the protein that it has by altering the growth cycle of your hair. In such cases, your hair enters into the resting stage, resulting in zero hair growth. In India, 9 out of 10 people are said to suffer from low amounts of protein in their diet, with 91% vegetarians reporting protein deficiency. 2. Iron deficiency Iron plays a very important role in the transportation of oxygen to the different organs of the body. Lack of iron in your diet (which is the principle reason behind anaemia) can give rise to several health problems including hair loss. Your body attempts to direct oxygen to important organs so as to support their functioning. As a result, your scalp witnesses a low supply of oxygen, which causes hair loss. 3. Vitamin D-3 deficiency Deficiency of vitamin D-3 gives rise to a type of hair loss called Telogen Effluvium (TE). This is a temporary hair thinning phenomenon that takes place when the all the hair on your scalp enter the resting phase at the same time, subsequently causing you to shed a large amount of hair later on. 4. Smoking Smoking can also affect the health of your hair, especially the rate at which it falls and the number of strands lost in a day. A research carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health has revealed that smoking can cause a rise in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). An increase in DHT level prevents new hair cells from growing and causes hair follicles to reduce in size with each hair cycle. As a result, the area on your scalp that gets affected by DHT experiences a lack of hair growth. 5. Use of testosterone supplements in gym Intake of testosterone in the form of supplements and injections to build muscle mass can trigger hair loss in men. This takes place when the testosterone in these supplements gets changed into DHT, thereby affecting your hair loss rate and amount. 6. Past illnesses (dengue, TB and typhoid) Falling of hair can also be brought on by illnesses such as typhoid, TB and dengue as the hair growth cycle comes to a stop. Hormonal or metabolic stress that is experienced during the course of such diseases may cause hairfall. What are the treatments available to cure hair loss? 1. Hair transplant Hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique that transfers hair follicles taken from other parts of your body to the balding area. Known by the name of Follicular Unit Transplantation, this hair loss treatment can help to bring back the natural appearance of a fuller head of hair. Hair follicles are harvested using two procedures- follicular unit extraction and strip harvesting. Procedure can vary from 4-8 hours or more depending on the case. 2. Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) Platelet- Rich Plasma (PRP) is another treatment alternative that can reverse hair loss. It’s a simple non-surgical procedure that lasts about 60-90 minutes. In this form of hair treatment, the patient’s own blood cells, more specifically blood platelets are injected into the scalp. Usually 8 sittings are required with each sitting being 2 weeks apart for better results. 3. Low Level Laser (Light) Therapy (LLLT) This form of hair therapy utilises light energy of a specific wavelength and threshold to stimulate cellular activity, thereby promoting hair growth. Various controlled clinical tests have revealed its effectiveness in encouraging hair growth in both the genders.

Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium tcan worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Prevention: -Take healthy food only and avoid unhealthy ones (although sebaceous glands are not excretory glands then as well!) as what you eat is reflected on your face! -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension as it encourages secretion of stress hormone in the body as thus affects skin or any other tissue of the body. -Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day. -Take 6-8hrs. of sound sleep everyday. -Don't use others towels, handkerchief on your face as well as never share yours. -Never ever rub your face as it damages the skin (even towel should be dab on skin softly) and break outs of acne get worsened! -Maintain hygiene, wash your face 2-3times in a day, changes the pillow covers, bed sheet daily, use cotton bed sheet only (try to sleep on your back). Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 30 days.

How to stop damaging your hair

In our quest for beautiful hair, we often do things that damage our hair. Damaged hair is fragile, so it tends to break. Hair breakage can leave us with frizzy, unhealthy looking hair. If we continue to damage our hair, we may eventually see thinning hair or even bald spots.

The good news is that simple changes can prevent further hair damage. On this page, you’ll find 10 common hair-care practices that can damage hair and dermatologists’ tips that can help you to stop damaging your hair.
10 hair-care habits that can damage your hair

Washing your hair by rubbing shampoo into the length of your hair

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Gently massage shampoo into your scalp.
When you rinse the shampoo from your scalp, let it flow through the length of your hair and resist the temptation to rub it into your hair.

Skipping the conditioner

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Use conditioner after every shampoo.

Dermatologists’ recommendations for swimmers

Pool chemicals can be hard on your hair. The following can help protect your hair:

Wear a swim cap.
Rinse hair immediately after swimming.
After rinsing your hair, wash your hair with a specially formulated swimmers’ shampoo and follow with a deep conditioner.

Drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Wrap your hair in a towel to absorb the water.
Let your hair air dry.

Brushing your hair while it is wet

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Do you have straight hair? Let your hair dry a bit before you gently comb it with a wide-tooth comb.
Do you have textured hair or tight curls? Always comb your hair while it is damp, using a wide-tooth comb.

Using a blow dryer, hot comb, or curling iron

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Let your hair air dry when possible.
Use the lowest heat setting.
Limit the time a hot comb or curling iron touches your hair.
Use these tools less frequently, aiming for once a week — or even less often.

Applying styling products that offer long-lasting hold

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Try a hairstyle that does not require this product.

Pulling your hair back tightly, such as in a ponytail, bun, or cornrows

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Wear hair loosely pulled back.
Use covered rubber bands made especially for styling hair.
Try a different hairstyle that does not pull on your hair.

Wearing a weave or hair extensions

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Wear weaves and extensions that are light, so they do not pull.
Get weaves and hair extensions at a salon that specializes in these services.
Wear a professional weave or hair extension for 2 or 3 months at most.
Keep up your scalp hygiene when wearing a weave or hair extension.
Switch hairstyles, so you don’t always wear a weave or hair extensions.

Coloring, perming, or relaxing your hair

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Try to add more time between touch-ups, especially when the air is dry. In the winter, try to stretch the time between touch-ups to every 8 to 10 weeks or longer.
Have only one service — a coloring, relaxer, or perm. If you want more than one service, perm or relax your hair first, and do it 2 weeks before you color your hair.
Use conditioner after each shampoo.
When in the sun, protect your hair by using a leave-in conditioner that contains zinc oxide or wearing a wide-brimmed hat.

Brushing your hair 100 strokes a day or tugging on your hair to style it

Changes that can help prevent hair damage:

Brush and comb your hair only to style it. Hair never needs 100 brush strokes a day. That’s a myth.
Use a wide-tooth comb, and use it gently to comb your hair.
Avoid pulling and tugging on your hair as you brush, comb, or style it.
Remove tangles gently, using a moisturizing conditioner if necessary.

When to see a dermatologist

If changing how you care for your hair does not help you see healthier hair, you may want to see a dermatologist. Your hair care may not be the root cause of your problem. Seeing a dermatologist is especially important if you are concerned about thinning hair or hair loss. Most causes can be stopped or treated. The sooner the problem is addressed, the better your results.

acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin e to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing. In the study, vitamin e either had no effect or made matters worse for 90% of the patients, and 33% who put vitamin e on the skin developed a contact dermatitis. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. Do reply back for private consultation.

For oily skin use Ahaglow - S face wash. Continue sunscreen as usual once in every 3-4 hours. Apply half an hour before going outside. For regular purpose use Golite cream at night. If you can, consult your dermatologist and take yellow peel once in 3 weeks 2-3 sittings. For underarms darkness use Litearm lotion twice daily.

Acne can be treated easily with facewash, tablets and creams. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please call me or send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.

Hair loss happens due to various reasons and shampoos and oil alone will never be able to stop your hair loss. There could be some nutritional deficiency or hereditary factor or some medical problem if it has persisted for mor than three months. I would like to advise you to have a balanced meal with enough proteins and have two cups of green tea daily. Also have walnuts, almonds and flaxseeds regularly. Start a multivitamin supplement and exercise atleast four times a week to improve blood circulation to the scalp. If your hair loss does not reduce in two months after doing this you may need further investigation. An early treatment is the key to successful results in hair loss cases as the damage to hair follicles can be prevented with the right treatment.

Hello lybrate-user to lighten your skin you can use depigmenting (advan) cream at bed time and sunscreen (photostable) in morning (8 am) and afternoon (12 noon). You can also take oral vitamin c tab 500mg @night daily. Take care.
