HAIR Hair fall could b significant or just physiological without any systemic involvement. Firstly, don't stress over it. Meditate. Practice yoga. Relax yourself. Stress vil increase your hairfall. Drink two litres of water. Eat plenty of pulses, meat, fish and milk. Avoid hair cosmetics. Wash hair twice or thrice a week. Shampoo should be done to wash dirt, dust and grime and not for anything else. Don't use dyes, bleaches or straighteners. Massage scalp to improve circulation. After a bath, don't blow dry your hair instead naturally dry hair. If any scalp infection, get it treated. Any allergy should be taken care of

Get thick hair naturally by following these tips - 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 raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. 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. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Hi. I don't know what shampoos have you used previously. I would recommend you to use ketoconazole shampoo for dandruff. But make sure you keep it for 10mins and then only you wash off.

Hi debashish. Body odoour is a common condition and nothing to worry about. As your sweat is concentrated it has odour in it because you dont do exercise now and sweat out. You should start exercising and also should drink plenty of water above 3 L. This will help in removing the toxins from the body. Takecare

Acne can be due to improper skin care or underlying hormonal imbalance. Start using a salicylic acid face wash and a sunscreen with spf 30. Include salads, fruits, green leafy veg and citrus fruits in your diet. Proper sleep also plays a vital role.

Premature greying is greying before the age of 30 yr. After that it is natural physiological process. There are various reasons involved in it. Nutritional factor and genetic cause are on the top. Apart from that stress, thyroid problem, non conditioning the scalp contributes in it. Treatment is available but it is important to check the condition of hair follicle and extent of greying on scalp. Proteins help in production of melanin so food rich in protein is good for hair. Oil the scalp with jaborandi hair oil 3/week and wash it3/week. Consult trichologist for treatment.
