I am losing hair quickly and am tried to all shampoo but no effect in my hair fall solution please help me.
Although hair loss is not a life threatening condition but it can be a source of constant stress and worry in the persons affected by it. A person suffering from hair loss possesses lower self esteem and self confidence levels, and also feels embarrassed when in company of other people. Homeopathy can very efficiently deal with cases of hair loss, and produce excellent results. In Homeopathy, a huge number of wonderful medicines are present that are used to tackle hair loss cases. Every kind of hair loss (ranging from hair loss due to anemia / nutritional deficiencies, due to skin disorders, due to mental / physical trauma, due to childbirth or menopause, after acute diseases, to alopecia areata, alopecia totalis or androgenetic alopecia) can be treated with the help of well selected homeopathic medicines. To treat hair loss through homeopathy detail case history of the patient needs to be studied. After the case has been properly evaluated, the case homeopathic medicine is administered to the patient. To know more about the treatment of hairfall, consult me on Lybrate and get all the solutions on your smartphone.

Aloe vera and turmeric pack to clear scars of pimples aloe vera is a great source of nutrients, enzymes and polysaccharides. It acts as anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent and helps to remove the toxins present in the skin and also balances the natural moisture level of the skin. Turmeric is an excellent exfoliating agent and has anti-inflammatory properties. Make a paste of fresh turmeric and mix 1 tsp of aloe vera pulp with it. Apply this pack onto the pimple marks, wash off after 20 minutes. Tea tree oil to get rid of pimple scars tea tree oil is one of the best options to go for, when you are suffering from acne scars. Tea tree oil is a strong yet natural anti-bacterial agent and can be helpful to reduce skin spots. Mix 2-3 drops of tea tree oil with few drops of carrier oil and apply this mixture gently onto the affected areas of the skin and leave it on for a few hours. Remove the oil by swapping with a wet cotton ball. Tea tree oil cures the acne scars and also restricts future outbreaks.

Graying of hairs is due to many reasons like stress, poor nutrition, excessive use of shampoo etc. Avoid mental stress take diet rich in protein, fresh fruits dairy products give up smoking if you do. Homoeopathy is very effective in hair problems consult a homoeopathic physician.

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. 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. Apart from this, you can take one tablet of multivitamin Folli Hair once daily for 1 month (as premature greying of hair could be due to nutritional deficiency and get your Thyroid Function Test also done). Get your blood tested for CBC, Hb%, S. Ferritin, S. Folic acid, S. Iron, S. vitamin B12, S. vitamin D3, S. Calcium.

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 6-8 hrs. 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 2-3 times 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.

I am only 24 years old n my hairs getting premature grey very rapidly what dod I do?
Premature greying is greying before the age of 30 yr. There are various reasons involved in it. Genetic factor is the most important cause. Apart from that nutritional deficiency, stress, thyroid problem also adds up in it. Treatment is available. Scalp check and hair analysis is important for it. Proteins are important. Food rich in proteins are sprouts, beans, nuts, soya. Green leafy vegetable will help in giving iron. Drink 3 lit of water/day. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week. Consult trichologist for treatment.

BHMS

I am 22 year male and I have suffer from hair fall. I loss my lots of hair per day. What should I do?
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.

To prevent oily face, do not eat oily food, and cover your hair with shower cap when you oil them. Use oil control face wash atleast four times a day. Do not use any cream on face. Use turmeric-gram flour-yogurt paste face pack every second day.

The dark spots and patching could also be a result of ageing that needs some attention by you. Start using retinol products that wonderfully helps in dark spots, patching and wrinkles as well. You may start using Yuguard cream at bedtime and apply sunscreen daily. Also make sure you exercise daily and have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Hello Dear,According to Ayurveda, hair is a byproduct of bone formation. The factors responsible for building bones are also responsible for the hair re-growth. Ayurveda doctors believe that early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution (doshas). Excess pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can make the person start losing hair. We loose hair after a certain growth and new hair replaces the older one, which means recycling of hair. Hair loss means losing more hair than you naturally lose. As our hair grows under a natural process, so we can take care of growth only by natural resources and methods. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

There is no permanent solution for this. The medicine can give you relief but this can repeat. Pressure urticaria is chronic. Usually antihistamines likes teczine are given for urticaria. For pressure urticaria, some people get relief with corticosteroids but some do not. You need a doctor who can keep a track of your condition and provide you proper medication. You need to see a good dermatologist.
