I am having terrible frizzy hair with a lot of hair fall. How can I help my case?

I am having terrible frizzy hair with a lot of hair fall. How can I help my case?
Hi. It's normal to lose 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. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. 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 medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. 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.

Drinking at least between 10 and 14 - 8oz. Glasses of water every day is another great way to prevent hair loss. Water helps wash off toxins from your body. These toxins could be a major reason for hair loss. Drink distilled water or at least filtered water that does not contain chlorine, lead, etc. For healthy hair.

Commonly dandruff or any other infection and lack of hair nourishment are the main causes for hair fall. This requires both local application for dandruff or any other infection and local massage with oil to increase circulation and internal consumption of herbal preparations as nutrients for hair growth, if interested for full course of treatment, let us know.

I have a open skin in the foot measuring 1" x 1" for two years, even after skin grafting not covered, to develop skin to get clean foot what is the remedy?

F.mas,D.mas, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Chennai
Hi. From your description you have an open wound in your feet since 2 years which has not healed yet, so there is an ulcer which is non-healing for 2 years. Kindly get a biopsy from edge of the wound to rule out marjolin's ulcer which is a well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. Unfortunately if it turns out to be marjolin's ulcer wide excision has to be done otherwise it can turn into poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with a poor prognosis. This is however very-very rare. Now coming to common possibilities. As you are a diabetic get an fbs, ppbs and hba1c done. If sugars are elevated there will be more chances of infection so, if sugars are elevated control it preoperatively, otherwise there will be chances of graft failure due to infection. A swab can be taken from the wound and sent for culture to start correct prophylactic antimicrobial management and once culture shows negative growth grafting can be planned. Local application of silver nitrate cream serves as an antimicrobial as well as stimulates granulation. Synthetic dressings like hydrocolloid dressings which helps epithelization or integra in which deeper collagen acts as dermis and outer silicone sheet acts as epidermis can be used. The outer silicone layer is removed after 2 weeks followed by autograft can be done. Biologic dressings like xenograft or allograft can be used to temporarily cover the wound and once this layer sloughs auto graft can be used. Finally full thickness skin biopsy of patient's skin is done on admission. By specialized culture technology sheets of skin can be manufactured in 3 weeks and take up of cultured graft is 60-75% washing the feet pre-operatively in a bucket of lukewarm water with soap solution (pedicure) for 1-2 months can reduce the bacterial load of the wound and can reduce the chances of post-operative infection. Hope the consultation was beneficial. Regards.

Soak 4-5 almonds in milk overnight. In the morning make a paste of them and apply it on your face and rinse it off after an hour or two. You will definitely feel the glow on your face in less then 15 days.

Believe me, if you are happy from inside and taking nutritious, healthy food and daily yoga or some kind of exercises, it will be automatically reflected on your face. Apart from these, you can do CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally sunscreen with SPF-30) after washing your face daily; use the products as per your skin type. This will change the skin texture and skin tone. In case you do have tanning, apply honey with a dash of lime on your face. You can also use homoeopathic cream - Medicynth's Whitch Hazel daily at night. If the dull skin tone is due to any underlying ailment or diseases, need to look into the matter!

Hello, shampoos generally used to wash hair (cleaning). In few seconds its unable to provide nutrition. In your case you need healthy diet, some lifestyle modifications, as well ayurvedic medicines that helps you from root. 1) light massage with oil to scalp at bed time 2) be stress free. 3) normalize body heat.

Thinning of hair can be controlled by - 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like Egg, Yougurt and Lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 6. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 7. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 8. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. 9. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.
