Tips to Reduce Hair Loss

MBBS
General Physician, Chittorgarh
Tips to Reduce Hair Loss

Hair loss is one of the most common problems being faced today. Though losing 25 to 50 hair strands in a day is normal, sometimes the hair loss can be lot more and rapid causing worry and concern. Here are some simple measures which can help to control hair fall to a good extent.

1. Feed your hair: Have a good balanced diet

Hair requires a good number of vitamins and minerals too.

Vitamin A encourages healthy production of sebum in the scalp and also helps in hair growth. It is found in dark leafy green vegetables, sweet red peppers, mango, papaya etc.

Vitamin B12 found in milk, and milk products, beans etc. is useful for hair growth.

Biotin is very important for hair health. A deficiency of biotin can cause hair fall and hair thinning. So, if you are suffering from hair fall, include foods like dairy products, nuts, green vegetables e.g. cabbage that are rich source of biotin in your regular diet.

2. Give hair their building blocks: Have a protein-rich diet

Proteins are the building blocks of hair. Adequate protein intake promotes hair health and in turn helps curb hair loss. Indulge in a protein-rich diet, which comes in the form of lentils, dried beans, cottage cheese and of course, milk.

3. Hydrate your hair: Have enough water

Keep yourself hydrated. The hair shaft comprises one quarter water, so drink at least eight to twelve glasses of water in a day to stay hydrated and for growth of healthy hair.

4. Pamper your hair: Massage your Scalp with Essential Oils

A scalp massage with essential oil for couple of minutes helps your hair follicles remain active.

Oil can penetrate well within the hair shaft, thereby preventing the hair from losing its moisture. The hair is less likely to suffer damage and stays dense as well as strong. Castor oil especially has excellent hair growth properties and is considered an effective remedy against hair loss.

Warm a little oil for a few minutes. Gently rub it over clean scalp and hair shafts allowing the oil to penetrate.  Leave it on for a few hours, preferably overnight and then wash with a mild shampoo.

5. Nourish your hair: Use hair balms and hair mask

Hair loses moisture quickly. You can use special balms and hair masks to address this problem. Use balm either simultaneously with shampoo or immediately after rinsing it off. The correct way to apply balm is to smear it along the whole length of the hair, while avoiding rubbing it into the skin. Use a good hair mask once in a couple of weeks.

6. Go green : Rub green tea into your hair 

Go Green !

Studies have shown that rubbing green tea into hair may help curb hair loss problem. All you need to do is brew two bags of green tea in one cup of water, leave to cool and thereafter, apply it to your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly after an hour.

7. Keep hair clean: Shampoo regularly

Regular hair washing is a part of preventing hair loss by the way of keeping hair and scalp clean. By doing so, you are lowering the risk of infections and dandruff that may lead to hair breakage or loss.  Do not hesitate to shampoo hair on a regular basis.

8. Do it correct: Shampoo Correctly

Comb your hair thoroughly before washing. The quantity of shampoo to be used depends on the length of your hair. Be careful not to use too much.

Put shampoo onto your palms, and rub them together to whip up the foam. Then apply the shampoo to the roots of your hair. Use massaging movements, making sure to only touch the skin with your soft fingertips (and not with your nails, to avoid causing scratches).

9. Be gentle: Avoid hot water

Hair is a delicate structure. Do not use excessively hot water to wash your hair. Hot water strips your hair of colour and activates the oil-producing glands. Use lukewarm or tepid water which will help dilute the oil glands’ secretions, remove dirt, and improve blood circulation.

It’s best to end with a cool or cold shower. Such a finish will stimulate circulation at the hair roots and make your hair look smooth and shiny.

10. Be tender: Avoid brushing wet hair 

Wet hair is very weak. Brushing wet hair increases chances of hair breakage. If you must comb wet hair, use a very wide-toothed comb. Use your fingers to undo tangles, not a comb or brush. 

11. Know what is bad for hair: Avoid blow drying

If you want to keep hair healthy, you must know how to take care of them. Avoid rubbing your hair dry with a towel. Rather, let hair dry naturally. 

12. Let your Hair Breath: Avoid Smoking 

Smoking reduces the amount of blood that flows to the scalp and this causes a reduction in hair growth. 

13. Vitalize your Hair: Exercise Regularly

Make time for physical activity every day. Walk, swim or bike for 30 minutes a day helps balance hormonal levels, reducing stress levels thereby reducing hair fall. 

14. Keep your hair happy: De-stress yourself

Meditate. Have a good hobby or listen to soft music to reduce stress. 

15. Keep your head sweat free: Use a Bandanna

For men who wear helmet, the sweat accumulates in the pores and weakens hair roots causing hair loss. Wear a cotton bandanna or handkerchief over your hair under the helmet, so the sweat is absorbed and hair breakage prevented.

16. Be hair friendly: Chose a good hair style

If you are losing your hair, you must loosen up your hair. Hairstyles such as ponytails, braids and artificial hairstyles pull hair or tug hair follicles, and can eventually cause hair loss.

17. Keep hair healthy: Take care of your health 

Health problems are harbingers of hair loss. Ensure you deal with chronic illnesses, high fevers and infections properly to ensure healthy hair. 

18. Be watchful: Keep an eye on your medications 

Certain medications like cholesterol reducing medications, blood thinners etc may cause hair loss as a side-effect. Be in touch with your treating doctor and your dermatologist

19. Be nature friendly: Avoid chemicals

Harsh chemicals and permanent hair colour products could be damaging for hair health. When you are experiencing hair loss, it is advisable to reduce the frequency of hair colour or other hair treatments.

20. Regenerate your hair: Get your beauty  sleep 

Healthy sleeping patterns can help you solve many hair problems, so get a good 7-8 hour sleep everyday.

21. Protect your hair: Cap it !

Hair fall can also be caused due to exposure to the sun rays. Harsh sun rays can make the hair shafts dry, brittle causing hair fall. The best way is to cover your hair when you are going out under the sun.

22. Be Soft: Avoid sleeping with your hair down

If your hair is long or medium-length, you should braid it before going to bed. This will prevent it from becoming tangled and frizzy. It will also prevent hair breakage and hair fall.

23. Power up your Hair: Practice Yoga

Pranayam and yoga revitalise every cell of the body. 

Yogasanas like Suryanamaskar, Vajrasana, Sarvangasana, Halasana and pranayam rituals like kapalbhati, and anulomvilom help hair growth. These asanas cleanse our system and open up blockages allowing proper oxygen and blood flow, which results in nourishing hair follicles.

24. Stimulate your Hair: Acupressure

Acupressure is known to stimulate hair growth considerably. Balayam, which is an acupressure therapy increases circulation in the scalp and stimulates hair growth. For this pose, you should sit in the padmasana pose and place your fingertips facing each other. Let your thumbs be away from your fingers and rub the nails of one hand with those of the other hand. Make sure you rub only the broadest part of the nails together.

25. Get it Right: Visit your Dermatologist

Do not hesitate to see your Dermatologist if your hair loss is sudden, or continuous and gradual; or you notice hair shedding in large amounts after combing or brushing, or if your hair becomes thinner or falls out.

9 Ways to Get Naturally Gorgeous Skin!

MD - MD- Skin & VD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Ghaziabad
9 Ways to Get Naturally Gorgeous Skin!

Healthy skin is a sign of overall good health and vitality. Skin problem is one of the most persistent problems encountered by people. It is imperative therefore, that you take care of your skin to avoid skin disorders. Various factors, such as pollution, smoking, eating processed food and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to unhealthy skin.

There are certain habits, which can be followed by you on a regular basis to restore the health of your skin. Some of them are:

  1. Exercise regularly: Exercising on a regular basis improves your skin health as it increases blood circulation in the body. Consequently, it helps in delivering various nutrients to the skin, which in turn defers aging. Daily exercises also prevent the onset of various skin disorders.
  2. Keeping it clean: You should keep your skin clean to prevent the buildup of dirt. This prevents clogging of the pores and enables the skin to breathe. 
  3. Intake of vitamin C in various forms: Vitamin C is used in the collagen production process by amino acids. One of the most convenient ways of maintaining the glow of your skin is to introduce fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamin C. 
  4. Quit smoking: The pursuit of healthy skin necessitates immediate disengagement with smoking. This fatal habit should be avoided at all cost, as it triggers and facilitates the aging process. It also aggravates the production of free radicals in the skin which in turn adversely affects the skin.
  5. Less exposure to the sun: Exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun may damage the collagen structure of the skin. It also causes tanning and increases your chance of developing skin cancer.
  6. Avoid sweet food: Consumption of sweets may lead to the formation of various substances, which threaten to damage the collagen structure and subsequently aggravates the aging process.
  7. Antioxidants: Fruits and leafy vegetables are generally packed with antioxidants. A potential damage of the skin can be deterred by including them in the diet
  8. Massage: Skin massages facilitate blood circulation on the skin and eradicates the damaging effect of the free radicals. This ensures that you have healthy and refreshed skin.
  9. Plant proteins: The level of oestrogen falls drastically in women after menopause, leading to the development of wrinkles.Foods, such as soy, nuts and beans minimise this effect by replenishing the level of oestrogen in the body and therefore must be incorporated in the diet.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How to get rid of dark circles which are under the eyes and which medicine to apply.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
How to get rid of dark circles which are under the eyes and which medicine to apply.
Hello, Take healthy balanced diet including whole grains, green leafy vegetables, fruits and nuts. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water daily. Take a sound sleep of 8 hours minimum. Apply bakson's under eye cream on the dark circles. Apply Ramdev's aloe vera gel on the whole face at night. Home remedy:-1.Cucumbers have skin-lightening and mild astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally. Plus, they have a soothing and refreshing effect. Cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Repeat twice daily for about a week or more. Another option is to mix cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal amounts. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture on the affected skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with water. Follow this remedy daily for at least one week. 2.Raw Potato:-There are natural bleaching agents present in potato that can help lighten dark circles and get rid of puffiness around the eyes. Grate one or two raw potatoes to extract the juice. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it over your closed eyes. Make sure the juice covers the dark circles under your eyes as well as the eyelids. Allow the juice to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse your eyelids well with cool water. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks. Instead of potato juice, you can also use thick potato slices to remove dark circles.

I find this one the hardest! caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you urinate out more liquid than you take in causing dehydration. Dehydration of your body and hair roots is another key reason for hair loss. Replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk or any other non-caffeinated drink to those shiny and healthy hair.

I am very weak and I want a healthy body and a glowing face so what I have to do for that ?
Hi , from what you have written, it appears that you have no physical ailment and your weight is also normal for your age and height. It is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop positive attitude and make friends with positive thinking boys. 2. Don't keep doubting yourself. 3. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule 4. Avoid fast food and eat healthy food. 5 regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 6. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 7. If you still want some medicine, take alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily. This will be available in homeo medical shop.

Hi lybrate-user, yes CIPLA 8X shampoo is good to prevent dandruff and prevent hair fall. However, dandruff could be just one reason for your hair fall. There could be other reasons as well such as poor hair health, vitamin deficiency, or other products you use in your hair. For product build-up, regular washing will help, as will reducing the amount of product you use on your hair. If the problem is caused by minoxidil, then a hair transplant specialist maybe helpful. They have many hair loss treatments which can be helpful to you. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.
