Facing gray hair problem. In this moment what can I do? Which foods are solved this problem by eating.

Facing gray hair problem. In this moment what can I do? Which foods are solved this problem by eating.
Hair turned grey merely due to less or no production of melanin. Each hair has a separate melanin supply in the body. Medical Conditions leading to gray hair-
1.Thyroid Disease: An underactive or overactive thyroid can affect the melanin production in the hair which can cause premature greying
2.B12 Deficiency: Deficiency of B12 has also been linked to premature greying of hair.
 First we have to rule out any such condition ,for permanent cure you can go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment which will take your detailed symptoms into account. FOR COMPLETE CURE U CAN CLICK ON CONSULT OPTION. Grind sesame seeds and mix it in almond oil. Apply this on your scalp for few weeks as it will help in preventing your hair from turning white. According to experts, it can also help in reversing the process. Your hair will turn black if you use this solution. This combination works really well! Make sure to grind the sesame seeds properly. After applying this combination on your hair and scalp, you should leave it for about 20-30 minutes. Wash off with plain water. Say goodbye to white hair and say a big hello to a young you. If you use these home remedies, you will surely get great results. Try them and thank us later. Stress could be another cause for getting white hair and so, do not take much of stress and live a happy life. Take care of you and your hair! -

Get your HB checked. Do not do crash dieting if you are doing. Have healthy balanced meal. Do not skip your breakfast. Have green salads & fruits daily. Hair structure mainly consists protein. So take good amount of protein in your daily meal. Have sufficient sleep. Most importantly do not go for any hair treatments that can damage your hair permanantly. Check with your dermatologist that your scalp is healthy.

I am suffering from hair fall how do I get rid of this I have tried many different things.

I am suffering from hair fall how do I get rid of this  I have tried many different things.
Hi. It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash.

Condition hair daily. Ensure that you use a conditioner at all times after shampooing your hair. Conditioner helps soften and detangle hair.

Uneven skin tone may be a result of sun tan. Use a good quality sunscreen when you go in the sun. Some foods encourage our skin to make the most of our time in the sun, while still others cause our skin to reject the sun's rays. You should consume carrots. Eggs,mangoes, cheese,spinach, tomatoes,apricot, plums and peaches, tender coconut, buttermilk.The food rich in antioxidants will add a natural glow to your skin and the free radicals available in these fight against the harmful sun rays. If you wd like to go for a more natural approach, you may try citrus fruits which are really effective in bringing out glow to your skin as it has enough quantity of vitamin C. A good combination of cucumber, avocado and papaya will create a great effect in the process of bringing out fairness in your skin easily. Just make pulp of the fruit mentioned and two teaspoons of original cream. Mix it well and apply it over your face and stay for 20 minutes time. Tender coconut water also helps in making the fair skin tone bright and attractive. If you really wish to get fair skin internally, you can apply it twice in a day. Apply it with cotton over your facial skin and keep it for a period of 15 minutes. Remove it with water. Hot oil body massage is also proven benefecial to get fair skin For medicinal help, you may consult your dermatologist.

Hi lybrate-user, there are many treatments available for scars. These are, peels, dermaroller treatment, mesotherapy etc. These used in combination with skin lightening creams lead to collagen re modelling and improve appearance of scars. Though it is possible to improve the appearance of scares, it is highly improbable to completely eliminate its appearance. I would be happy to help you. Please consult me privately so that I can understand your problem in detail and help you. You can book a private in-person/text/audio/video appointment for further discussion and personalized advice.

Also referred to as open comedones, blackheads are small yellow or black bumps that form when a clog develops in the opening of hair follicles due to a combination of excess sebum and build-up of dirt and dead skin cells the bumps appear dark not because of dirt but as a result of oxidization. This happens when the clogged pores are exposed to the air. Factors like hormonal changes in the body, excessive use of cosmetic products, improper skin care, stress and genetics contribute to this problem. Blackheads commonly occur on the face, particularly the nose. They can also appear on the chest, back, neck, arms and shoulders. If left untreated, they can spur acne breakouts. There are many prescription medicines for the treatment of blackheads, but you can always try natural treatments. With simple ingredients easily found in most kitchens, you can treat your blackheads within a few days green tea green tea can also be used to treat blackheads. 1. Mix one teaspoon of dry green tea leaves with a little water to make a paste. 2. Gently scrub the paste over the affected area for two to three minutes. This scrub deep cleans oily skin and helps unclog pores. 3. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. Honey the balancing quality present in honey is good for both oily skin and blackheads. Honey hydrates as well as tightens the skin pores, giving you a clear complexion. 1. Apply some pure honey on your face. Leave it on for about 10 minutes. 2. Rinse your face with lukewarm water. Turmeric turmeric, which works well for minor burns, can also be used to treat blackheads? mix some turmeric powder with two tablespoons of mint juice. Apply it to the affected areas. Allow it to dry for a few minutes and then wash the area with lukewarm water. You can also make a thick paste by mixing red sandalwood, turmeric powder and milk together. Apply it on the affected area and after 10 minutes wash the skin with water any queries inform me.

Hi lybrate-user Few tips for taking care of dry skin: 1. Avoid bathing with very hot water. 2. Apply a good moisturiser such as Venusia max lotion immediately after bathing abd dab drying with a towel 3.Avoid strong soaps such as dettol ot lifebouy. Instaed use pears or dove. 4. For dry or cracked lips, use vaseline liberally. Also get them checked as there may be some sort of eczema which requires medications. 5. Drink lots of water. Hope this helped.

You need to take constitutional treatment in homeopathy. That means based on your all conditions, the drug will be decided. For that you better to meet any near by expert & be on regular follow ups. But till then you can apply arnica+jaborandi hair oil externally, frequently like once for 2days, keepthat for 2-3 hrs, or whole night before taking head bath, shampoo also should be the same, or any herbal like reetha, or shikakai. Take internally protein diet like soya, whole grain wheat flour made, pounded rice, sprouts which contain more b complex, all seasonal fruits, fresh, veg, green leafy, plenty of water. Take internally r-89 drops or bio force's bio hair. Daily 15- 20 drops in 1/4 th cup of luke warm water, twice/day edit answer.
