I suffer lot of hair fall at the age of 20.What can i do?
Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Cut a small piece of the aloe vera leaf and apply the fresh gel directly on the burn. You could also mix one teaspoon each of aloe vera gel and turmeric and then apply. If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can apply a cream that has aloe vera as an ingredient.

Half of my beard is turn to white. Can any medicine reverse it to black. Premature hair greying? Age 26.

Half of my beard is turn to white. Can any medicine reverse it to black. Premature hair greying?
Age 26.
Hi amith. Beard has a tendency to lose its natural colour with advancing age and turn grey, but premature greying is a morbid condition and it makes even the young look older. Causes:- 1. Very often, heredity is a predisposing factor. 2. Stress and psychological worries may also trigger the early graying of beard. 3. Early appearance of grey hair is prone to people who suffer from chronic cold and sinusitis. 4. A faulty diet with lack of vitamins will also causes untimely graying of beard. 5. Other causes of premature greying of hair are an unclean condition of the beard, washing the hair with hot water, drying it with an electric dryer, and use of hair dyes. General tips:- 1. You need to include a lot of foods with vitamin b12, folic acid. 2. Devitalising foods such as white flour, refined sugar and all products made from them, soft drinks, pastries, jams and jellies should be avoided. These foods take away energy, cause wrinkles, unattractive skin, grey hair, and premature old age. 3. Reduce stress. 4. Adequate sleep. 5. Positive attitude. Home remedies:- 1. Masaage of the skin under beard with tavishi (cold pressed coconut oil) daily before bath is recommended. 2. For dark beard, boil 1 unpeeled potato. Cool the water and massage the potato-water onto your skin under beard and into your hair with a cotton ball. Leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse out.

Take pituitarinum 200 1 dose every week for 1 month. And apply aloe vera daily in morning on your face rub it for 1-2 mins and then leave it for 10 mins. It will start giving your skin-glow, reduces pimples and make it soft and moist. This is natural way, rather than using creams. Still further if you have any issues, you can contact me again.

Hello. In a healthy person hairfall will be there in an average of 100 hairs per day, but if it is beyond the extent we have to take care of that. As you are living in hostel you must take care of food, water. Its better to avoid hot water head bath. Never apply shampoos directly to your scalp. Dilute the shampoos & use. Avoid exposure to direct heat, wind etc. Never have a head bath while you are sweating. Only after the heat dissipation. You can apply egg white once in a week. Take healthy nutrient rich fibre diet. Reduce stress & strain. Be happy always.

Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week.

I have red and swollen eyes. Also there are dark patches below my eyes. What should I do?
Dark circles are mostly due to habits. Avoid rubbing eyes. Get allergies tested. If you have refractive errors, get it checked and corrected. Avoid eye cosmetics and chemicals. Shampoos that seep down to eyeswhile bathing can contribute to this, so don't let it accumulate. Food should b supplemented with iron capsules. Have green leafy vegetables and jaggery in plenty. Overtime with computers, laptops, television, can increase the chances of darkness around eyes. Get your hb checked. Catch a good six hour sleep everyday. Relax and destress with yoga, meditation, prayer. Dark circles don't have a one-stop solution or home remedy. Sunken eyes won't respond to creams or medicines. U vil need a course of antiinflammatories,if infective,antibiotics too.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Dark spots are primarily caused by acne, blemishes and black heads. The percentage of dark spots increases as the exposure to the sun increases too. Since the rate of melanin would be decreases, it leads in turn to the darkening of the skin. So, apply sunscreen (Homoeopathic SUNCARE cream of BAKSON Company) , every time you go out and follow the recipes below in order to get relief from dark spots. Instead of using the chemical products for your skin, try using some natural home remedies. Using home remedies can work out to be much cheaper than chemical based products and they can help treat your condition without any side effects. Caring for your skin is highly important. Here are some home remedies that allow your skin to be free of dark spots, black spots or pimple marks or even acne scars on the face. 1.Take a medium sized tomato and squeeze the juice from it, add one tablespoon of lemon juice to the tomato juice and stir the mixture well. Apply on the face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Rinse the face with warm water. 2.Take pulp from Aloe Vera leaves and let it dry in the sun for 5 minutes and then add few drops of lemon juice to the dried pulp. Apply this mixture on the face and wash it off after 15 minutes. The results are quite good. 3.Onions have anti-microbial properties and they help remove the acne related scars and spots. Take an onion and cut it into several pieces, grind them and then, separate the juice from the beaten onions. Apply this mixture on the affected areas; allow the mixture to remain on the skin for a few minutes and rinse off with water. 4.Mix two tablespoons of sandalwood powder with a few drops of rose water and apply on the spots and on the entire face. Wash it off, after it dries. 5.Take a pinch of turmeric powder and add some lemon juice to it. Mix both the ingredients well together and dab the mixture on the black spots. Scars and spots will disappear and the results would show on the skin within a week’s time.
