Hair Growth Tips in hindi - बाल बढ़ाने के तरीके

हम सबसे ख़ास दिखें ये चाह हम सभी की होती है। और इस खासियत यानी सुन्दरता को बढाने में घने-लम्बे बाल अहम् रोल अदा करते है। सबका हेयर स्टक्चर अलग-अलग होता है। किसी के सर में कम बाल होते हैं तो कोई घने बालों को लहराता नजर आता है। पर सुंदर और घने बाल सभी को अच्छे लगते हैं चाहे वे पुरुष हो या महिला। सभी की चाह होती है घने बालों को अपने तरीके से सवारने सजाने की। पर आज के Pollution भरे माहौल और गलत Lifestyle के कारण बालों की दसा में सूधार कर पाना एक चैलेंज सा हो गया है।
लेकिन आपको चिंता करने की जरूरत नहीं आप बेझिझक ये चैलेंज एक्सेप्ट करें और हमारे बताए तरीको के साथ लग जाएं बालों की ग्रोथ की मुहिम पर। तो दोस्तों आइये हम जानते हैं कुछ घरेलु नुस्खे जिन्हें अपनाकर आप बालों को गिरने से रोकने के साथ ही उन्हें घना और लम्बा भी रख सकते हैं।

1. कोकोनट मिल्क 
एक ब्रश से अपने सर पर कोकोनट मिल्क लगाएं, और सर पर एक टॉवेल बांधकर करीब 20-25 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें। फिर टॉवेल हटाएं और बालों को ठन्डे पानी से धो दें। बाद में शैम्पू कर लें, इस नुस्खे को हफ्ते में एक बार आजमाने से थोड़े ही दिनों में आपके बाल गिरना रुक जाएंगे। पर याद रहे, सर पर कोकोनट वाटर नहीं कोकोनट मिल्क लगाना है। जो नारियल को घिसने के बाद उसे निचोड़ने से निकलता है।

2. एलोवेरा 
अपने बालों को सादे पानी से अच्छी तरह धोएं। फिर एलोवेरा के पत्ते में से निकले गूदे से पूरे सर पर अच्छी तरह मालिश करें। 15 मिनट के बाद सादे पानी से सर को धो लें हफ्ते में तीन दिन सुबह-सुबह ये नुस्खा अपनाकर देखें। थोड़े ही दिनों में फर्क दिखने लगेगा।

3. आम
आम इसलिए कि इसमें नीम का इस्तेमाल करना है और नीम आपको हर जगह मिल जाएगी। नीम की पत्तियों को पानी में इतनी देर उबालें कि पानी आधा रह जाए। अब इसे ठंडा हो जाने दें। इस बचे हुए पानी को सर पर खूब अच्छी तरह मलें।इसे आप शैम्पू के बाद भी कर सकते हैं। हफ्ते में एक बार ये Formula आजमाएं.

4. आंवला 
आंवले की खूबियों से भला कौन अनजान है। हम सब बचपन से सुनते आए हैं कि आंवला बालों के लिए फायदेमंद होता है। पर आंवला इस्तेमाल करने का सही तरीका पता होना भी जरूरी है। थोड़े से सूखे हुए आंवले नारियल के तेल में इतनी देर उबालें कि तेल काला पड़ जाए। ठंडा होने पर इस तेल को किसी कांच की बोतल में रख लें। हफ्ते में दो बार इस तेल से सर की अच्छी तरह मालिश करें और 20 मिनट बाद शैम्पू कर लें। बहुत जल्द इसका आसार आपको समझ में आने लगेगा।

5. मेथी 
मेथी दाने तो आप किचन में इस्तेमाल ही करते हैं। दो चम्मच मेथी दाने नारियल के तेल में तल कर लें। चूल्हे से उतारकर इसे अच्छी तरह चलाते हुए ठंडा कर लें। ये मिश्रण थोड़ा सा लेकर हलके हाथों से कुछ देर बालों की जड़ों में मलें। और 20 से 25 मिनट बाद सादे पानी से सर धो लें। पर हाँ ऐसा महीने में एक या दो बार आजमाएं।

6. बीटरूट 
बीटरूट यानी चुकंदर के पत्ते, सबसे पहले Beet के थोड़े से पत्ते पानी में इतनी देर उबालें कि पानी आधा रह जाए। उबले हुए पत्तों को मेहंदी की पत्तियों के साथ पीसकर पेस्ट बना लें। इस पेस्ट से सर पर अच्छी तरह मालिश करें और 20 मिनट बाद सर धो डालें। हफ्ते में तीन बार ये नुस्खा आजमाएं और हेल्दी बाल पाएं।

7. ग्रीन टी 
गर्म पानी में ग्रीन टी के दो बैग डालें। पानी ठंडा हो जाने पर टी बैग निकाल लें और उस पानी को पूरे सर पर मलें। हफ्ते में दो बार इसे शैम्पू के बाद कंडीशनर के तौर पर इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं।इससे बालों को मजबूती भी मिलेगी और चमक भी आएगी।

8. लहसुन 
रोज खाने में लहसुन की 4 से 5 कलियां खाने से बाल घने होते हैं। लहसुन का रस निकालकर सिर में लगाने से बाल उगने भी लगते हैं।

9. सीताफल 
सीताफल ऎसा फल है जो कई तरह से शरीर को पोषण देता है। सीताफल को खाने से भी आपके बाल कुछ दिनों में घने हो जाते हैं। सीताफल के बीज और बेर के बीज के पत्ते बराबर मात्रा में लेकर पीसकर बालों की जड़ों में लगाएं।फल का स्वाद जैसा मन खुश कर देता है पत्ता वैसे ही बालों को खुश कर देगा। 

10. मूली 
मूली हम सलाद के लिए खाते है। पर ध्यान रहे मूली बेहद फायदा करती है खासकर पेट और आपके बालो को घना बनाने के लिए। आधी से 1 मूली रोजाना दोपहर में खाना-खाने के बाद, कालीमिर्च के साथ नमक लगाकर खाने से बालों का रंग साफ होता है और बाल लंबे भी हो जाते हैं। इसका प्रयोग 3-4 महीने तक लगातार करें। 

11. ककड़ी 
ककड़ी में सिलिकन और सल्फर अधिक मात्रा में होता है जो बालों को घना बनाने में मदद करते है। इसलिए जिनके सर पर बाल कम हो उन्हें रोज ककड़ी खानी चाहिए इससे बाल घने हो जाते हैं। ककड़ी के रस से बालों को धोने से और ककड़ी, गाजर और पालक सबको मिलाकर रस पीने से बाल बढ़ते हैं।

तो आप बिंदास उन नुस्खों को अपनाएं और अपने बालों की ग्रोथ बढाएं पर ध्यान रहे अगर आपको लम्बे समय तक इन नुखों को आजमाकर भी फर्क ना नजर आए तो हेयर स्पेशलिस्ट से सम्पर्क करें।

6 Myths Debunked About Adult Acne!

MBBS, MD - Skin,VD & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Noida
6 Myths Debunked About Adult Acne!

Acne can be frustrating and annoying. A lot of unnecessary chaos can be avoided if people get the facts right.

1. Myth: Adults do not suffer from acne problems
Truth: While acne outbreaks are common amongst teenagers, adults are not spared either. In adults, the acne problems are essentially of two types; the late onset acne and the persistent acne. In many cases, it has been observed that the acne problems appear at a later period, mostly after 23 to 25 years of age (late onset acne). At other times, the unwanted acne outbreaks that mark its appearance during the teenage years linger for a longer period (persistent acne type).

2. Myth: A person's eating habits and lifestyle has no role to play in acne
Truth:
Lifestyle and eating habits can influence a person's health. Excessive intake of sweets and simple carbohydrates can worsen the acne. Stress, fatigue, lack of proper sleep, can also aggravate the already frustrating acne problem.

3. Myth: Acne results from dirty skin, with adult men and women being equally affected
Truth: The Pilosebaceous unit of the skin plays a pivotal role in acne outbreaks. The oil producing gland (Sebaceous gland) of this unit acts as the main control. Certain hormones regulate the activity and size of this gland. An increase in the size of the sebaceous gland results in an increased oil secretion. The skin pores become very sticky. These pores serve as a host, into which the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes multiples.
Adult women are more prone to acne than their male counterparts. This is because, hormonal imbalance or alterations affects adult females more. Women often suffer from acne during menstruation.

4. Myth: Acne can spread from one person to another
Truth:
More than often, acne is seen as a contagious dermatological problem. Though caused by the bacteria P. acnes, acne is not contagious. It is rather foolish to maintain a distance from the affected individual.

5. Myth: Acne is a minor problem and needs no medical intervention
Truth:
Going for self-medication can do the acne more harm than good. Acne is influenced by a number of internal as well as external factors (stress, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy lifestyle). For an effective treatment, it is important to identify the root cause. It is best to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.

6. Myth: In case of acne, the face should be frequently washed and cleansed
Truth:
Ideally, the face should be washed twice daily with a gentle cleanser. Some people get eternal pleasure in squeezing the heads of the spot. This can damage your skin beyond repair.

Do not allow acne problems to affect your self-confidence. Acne can be cured. Do not fall for the baseless myths.

How apple cider vinegar helps in preventing Dandruff. How to use is topically and internally.
Dandruff can be treated with lotions and shampoo (not commercial ones). Some people do have more oily scalp which cause visible flakes which we cause dandruff. There are some other conditions also which can present like flaking of the scalp and have to be ruled out. Do not apply oil on scalp as it will increase the problem.

Know More About Laser Hair Removal!

We all want to look our best. Being well dressed and presentable boosts our confidence and equips us to deal better with any professional or personal obligations that we may have. Someone who’s sharply dressed, well done hair, properly done eyebrows, no trace of facial or body hair, will make a better first impression than someone who’s unkempt. And it is a commonly agreed upon fact that the first impression on someone will speak volumes about our future interactions with them.

One of the most observable feature of our entire getup is facial and body hair. Imagine being completely updated with the latest trends while choosing an attire, but then your body hair shows through! It will be a little disconcerting and plays down all our efforts. Understandably, going to salons for waxing/threading or even tweezing on a regular basis can be time consuming and many times, we might also feel too lazy to step out for the sole purpose of hair removal. Rather than going to the parlour for hair removal every month (and in some case, once in every two weeks even), it makes more sense to find a more permanent solution to this. Opting for laser hair removal can rid us of this headache (Learn more about headache/migrain problem).

Laser hair removal is a modern technology developed for the increasingly chic and conscious population that likes to be always ready to go out without worrying about a disturbing view of stubble spoiling their look. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted hair from our body without major side effects, by using a long pulsed laser. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark matter or melanin. Hence, it targets the hair follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. General side effects include mild itchiness, temporary redness and swelling, pain, tingling or a temporary feeling of numbness. (Learn more about Laser Hair Removal Treatment)

But, be careful as to do careful research before finalising your specialist. It’s imperative to hold thorough discussions with the team that carries out the hair removal and be assured of their competence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

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 don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.

4 Ways To Treat Burns And Wounds!

FAPS (Cosmetic Surgery)-USA,, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi
4 Ways To Treat Burns And Wounds!

The branch of plastic surgery that is generally used for the treatment of burns and other wounds is known as reconstructive plastic surgery. There are numerous surgical methods that fall under this category, which is effectively used to treat these injuries and the related issues that they cause.

What are medical issues caused by burns and wounds?

Some of the most frequently occurring issues that stem from burns and similar wounds are as follows:


- Restriction of mobility

- Aesthetic disfigurement and scarring

- Loss of sensation in the affected area

The different issues are caused by varying kinds of burns and injuries and, hence, each case must be approached in a different manner for remedy.

Different kinds of plastic surgeries that are used for treatment

Depending on the nature of the injury, your plastic surgeon may opt for any of the following surgical methods for treating the problem.

1. Skin grafting

In this procedure, skin is removed from one part of the body and transplanted to the affected area. This method is used for the treatment of burns. There are two types of this surgical procedure - one removes a few layers from the dermis of the donor area (split-thickness graft) while the other removes the entire dermis (full-thickness graft). Recovery time depends on the kind of procedure used. Skin grafting is occasionally used for breast and nose reconstruction as well.

2. Microsurgery

This type of surgery makes the use of a microscope in reconstructive procedures for working on minuscule veins, arteries, and nerves for repairing damaged areas. Microsurgery is often used alongside other surgical procedures for re-attaching body parts, relieving paralysis of the face and in the reconstruction of breasts.

3. Tissue expansion

This method is used to induce the growth of extra skin on the body that can be used for reconstructive purposes. This is done by inserting a balloon expander underneath the skin that slowly gets filled with saline solution and makes the skin swell. This excess skin is then used for correction or reconstruction of the affected area.

4. Free flap procedure

This procedure involves the transfer of skin, bone, muscle and blood supply from the donor area to the damaged area for repairing purposes. Microsurgery is often performed alongside this treatment method, which is used most frequently for breast reconstruction or after the removal of cancer from the neck or head. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

How To Treat Hyperpigmentation?

Dermatologist, Pune
How To Treat Hyperpigmentation?

There would only be a handful of people who are happy with the way their skin looks. While acne and pimples are the concerns at a younger age, but with age the concerns shift to dark circles and pigmentation. Both light and dark pigments become worrisome, and one continuously looks for ways to manage them.

The skin has a pigment called melanin, which is responsible for the color; more the melanin component, darker the skin complexion. This can either decrease or increase and can affect people of any age or gender. Whether or not you will be a victim of pigmentation depends on genetics, sun exposure, skin care regime, hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy), stress levels and hormonal changes. While hyperpigmentation is very common with old age, hypopigmentation is not very normal and it is advisable to seek medical attention to rule out more serious underlying diseases. The most common types of hyperpigmentation include:

  1. Lentigo: It is also known as multiple freckles, if caused exclusively due to sun exposure, it is called solar lentigines or dark spots or age spots.
  2. Melasma: This is caused by hormonal changes, especially during pregnancy.

Preventing hyperpigmentation:

  1. Minimizing sun damage is the first and most important step in reducing onset and severity of pigmentation. Use a sunscreen that at least has an SPF of 15 regularly. It is not just on sunny days that the sun causes damage. If you are heading out (even cloudy days), it means the sun can damage you. Avoid sun exposure as much as possible if you know you are prone to pigmentation.
  2. Regular use of scrubs and exfoliators ensures the buildup of dead cells is removed, which itself leads to hyperpigmentation in many people. For dry or sensitive skin, exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week. For oily skin, exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week. Try to avoid scrubs on acne as the abrasive effect can worsen the condition.

Treatment for Hyperpigmentation-

Pigmentation issues run in the family and if your mother and grandmother had it, it is very likely you are prone for hyperpigmentation too. In these cases, aggressive skin care routine can help improve appearance. Ensure that the skin care products used contain at least an SPF of 15 and other active ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). The glycolic and lactic acids are examples of AHAs, which aid in removing dead cells that form on the skin. This produces a clearer skin with lesser discoloration. Vitamin C and E and kojic acid are also effective for treating hyperpigmentation. Other dermatological treatments-

  1. Chemical Peels: Chemical Peels are a more intensive treatment used in cases of more persistent pigmentation or to hasten the lightening effects of the topical prescription products. Peels work by exfoliating the upper-most layer of your skin and the dark area with it. There are many different types of peels and they are usually solutions that the dermatologist applies to the skin.
  2. Medication: Topical treatments such as hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream, GA, and trichloroacetic acid. Skin whitening products are used for clinical treatment of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.

In addition to these, ensure you eat a healthy diet with loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, stay hydrated, reduce sun exposure, and you surely will have be able to deal with pigmentation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Losing Too Much Hair? Here's What You Can Do!

MBBS
General Physician,
Losing Too Much Hair? Here's What You Can Do!

Luscious, healthy hair is undoubtedly one of the most prominent feature that adds charm to your personality. However, a minor or severe form of physical or mental stress and related problems can adversely affect your hair health and growth pattern.

Are you losing too many hair strands in a day?

If yes, then tentatively, how many?

If the number is about 100, then you need not worry, however, if it is beyond 100 you need to get cautious.

On an average, an adult has 100,000 to 150,000 hair and each hair follicle has its own life cycle, and traverses through three phases during its growth phase; anagen (active hair growth takes place), catagen (transitional hair growth), and telogen (resting phase after which the hair sheds off). Hair fall is a normal physiological process in which the hair completes its life cycle and sheds off. However, excessive hair fall is a health concern that needs thorough evaluation and treatment.

Have you heard of telogen effluvium?

Telogen effluvium (TE) also called as hair loss is a common dermatological condition which causes increased shedding of hair. This happens when there is a premature arrest of the growth of hair follicles and these follicles enter into the telogen phase (resting) followed by diffuse thinning of hair on the scalp. In most cases, the hair thins on the top of the scalp compared to the sides and back of the scalp. The hair loss is temporary and the hair soon recovers.

How common is telogen effluvium in India?

Studies suggest that TE is amongst the most common cause of hair loss. It can occur in both males and females. However, it is found to be more common in females.

 

What are the common causes of telogen effluvium?

Common causes of TE include certain medical condition, stress, pregnancy, crash dieting, nutritional deficiencies, intake of certain medicines, and physical trauma.

A common cause of hair loss in the Indian population is diet. A major proportion of the Indian population consumes a diet lacking essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, predisposing the population to this condition. It, therefore, becomes more important to include vital minerals such as zinc, amino acids (such as L-lysine), and vitamins (such as B6 and B12) to your daily diet or to take supplements available in the market.

Are Indians at an increased risk of nutritional deficiencies?

Yes, Indians are at an increased risk of nutritional deficiencies. Several research studies conducted in the past outline a direct association of nutritional deficiencies with hair loss.

In fact, according to a clinical survey published in Indian Medical Gazette, 9 out of 10 people in the country are unable to consume adequate amount of proteins. Working population settled in urban areas have been found to be most commonly affected by protein deficiencies.

How can you ensure healthy and luscious hair?

Simple 7 steps to healthy hair

Volumes of literature support the need for adding nutritional supplements to the diet to avert the occurrence of hair fall. Often TE gets better once the trigger for the condition is taken care of. However, if in case it persists make sure you consult a medical professional at the earliest.

Step 1: It’s all about what you eat (have a BALANCED DIET!!!)

  • Considering the fact, that a major part of the Indian population are green eaters and they often run short of essential nutrients, one needs to make a conscious effort to have a balanced and nutrient rich diet.
  • Add green leafy vegetables that are an abundant source of iron, zinc, and other vitamins and minerals that are essential for healthy hair growth. Add PROTEIN to your diet. Include milk products, soya products, nuts, fish, lean meat seeds, sprouts, and cereals to your daily diet.
  • Opt for foods packed with vitamin E, like almonds, walnuts, or strawberries which improve scalp circulation, as well as vitamin C-rich foods like broccoli, tomatoes, and other citrus fruits.

Step 2: Massage your scalp regularly

Massage has been found to improve the blood circulation to the hair follicles and stimulates hair growth. Try essential oils such as olive oil, castor oil, rosemary oil, and coconut oil to massage your scalp. Warm oil helps penetrate the scalp more effectively. You can also apply hair serums that are enriched with nutrients that nourish the hair and keep it healthy.

Step 3: Choose your SHAMPOO wisely

Watch out for harsh chemicals like parabens, lauryl sulfate, and sodium chloride. Parabens which are used as preservatives in shampoos can mimic as estrogens which lead to hair loss. Lauryl sulfate, an anionic surfactant used in many cleaning and hygiene products, also cause hair fall. You can also apply certain over-the-counter products that help in better penetration of anti-hair fall medications and enhance their action.

Step 4: Get sufficient Vitamin D (Don’t hide from the sun)

Little do we realize that sunlight actually plays a critical role in promoting hair growth. Sunlight helps you get your daily dose of Vitamin D which is helpful in managing hair fall, so don’t hide from it!

Step 5: Say NO to stress

Stress is amongst the key factors governing a happier and healthier you. So, make sure it does not serve as a roadblock in your health.

Eat healthy and bring in basic lifestyle changes in your day to day life to avert the chances of triggered hair fall.

Step 6: Go for hair growth supplements

-Keratin makes up most of our hair strands and amino acids such as cysteine, lysine, arginine, and methionine play a critical role in the formation of the hair strands. The market is loaded with several supplements (oral and topical) that help to provide the hair with essential nutrients and vitamins. You can choose to pick supplements that are a source of vital minerals and vitamins essential for hair growth.

Step 7: Seek help from a dermatologist/ trichologist

  • In case your hair fall tends to worsen or does not improve with dietary and lifestyle changes, it is best to consult a dermatologist. He/she will examine your scalp and may suggest certain tests to rule out any underlying cause of hair fall. He/she may also prescribe some topical or oral medications and supplements to help manage hair fall better.
  • So, go ahead and try these simple and effective everyday tips to ensure that your hair stays healthy and strong.

Hello there. Excessive secretion of sebum through sweat glands leads to pimples. Keep your face dry. Drink water regularly. Avoid any chemicals on your face. Use Avipathi choorna 1 tsp at night with warm water.
