Pyaj Ka Ras Balo Ke Liye in hindi - प्याज का रस बालों के लिए

Pyaj Ka Ras Balo Ke Liye in hindi - प्याज का रस बालों के लिए

हर किसी की चाहत में शामिल होता है खूबसूरत दिखना जिसके लिए हम लाख जतन करते फिरते हैं। पर कुछ समय में चेहरा संवार भी ले पर बालों को की सेहत हमसे नहीं सुधर पाती जबकि खुबसूरत बाल हमारी बेहतर लुक के लिए बहुत ही अहम होता है। बढ़ते पॉल्युशन और अनियमित बिजी बिजी लाइफस्टाइल के चलते बालों का ख्याल रखना डिफिकल्ट हो जाता है। घर पर बालों को धोना ही हम में से कई महिलाओं को नहीं भाता। जिसके लिए वे पार्लर या हेयर स्पा का सहारा लेती हैं। और ये तरीके रूटीन में शामिल करने से आपकी जेब और बालों की सेहत दोनों पर इफ़ेक्ट पड़ता है। पर आज आप जानेंगे एक ऐसी चीज़ के बारे में जो आपके बालों के लिए बेजोड़ इलाज है जिसे हम प्याज कहते हैं। बालों का झड़ना, असमय सफेदी, रूसी की समस्या तो आम हो गई है। बालों की इन उलझनों के लिए प्याज एक वरदान है! जी हाँ, प्याज आपके बालों को झड़ने, रुसी, सफेदी और गंजे होते सिर की समस्याओं को दूर करती है। 

वहीं प्याज जिसका इस्तेमाल सब्जियां पकाने में किया जाता है,प्याज के रस के फायदे वह बालों के झड़ने तथा गंजेपन का इलाज का चमत्कारी इलाज है। बाल बढ़ाने के उपाय, गंजापन का इलाज, एक शोध के अनुसार प्याज अलोपेसिया अरियाटा जो कि गंजेपन का ही एक प्रकार है, से प्रभावी रूप से लड़ने की काबिलियत रखता है। इस पर और भी कई शोध हुए हैं, और सबमें प्याज ने अपनी उपयोगिता साबित की है।

अपनी दुर्गन्ध की वजह से अक्सर ही ब्यूटी प्रोडक्ट्स की बात होने पर इसे इग्नोर कर दिया जाता है। यह हमारे किचन में हमेशा पाया जाने वाला पदार्थ है, जो हमारे खाने का स्वाद बढाता है। और प्याज हमारे शरीर के लिए भी काफी फायदेमंद होता है पर सबसे ज्यादा असरदार है यह बालों की सेहत के लिए। तो आइए जानते हैं, प्याज से होने वाले फायदे और इसे इस्तेमाल करने के तरीकों को।

झड़ते बालों को रोकें 
प्याज झड़ते बालों को रोक सकती है, इसके लिए आप प्याज को कूटकर उसका पेस्ट बना लें। पहले नारियल के तेल से बालों की मालिश करें और आधे घंटे के बाद बालों पर प्याज के पेस्ट को लगाएं। -या नारियल तेल को कटोरी में लेके गर्म करें और उसमें बारीक़ कटी हुई प्याज डाल कर उसके अच्छी तरह से गुलाबी होने तक तेल को गर्म करते रहें। इसके बाद तेल जब ठंडा हो जाए तो उसे बालों में लगा लें। -रात भर के लिए अगर लगाना हो तो तेल में प्याज डाल कर गर्म करें अथवा पहले वाला उपाय करें और 30 मिनट बाद बाल धो लें। 
परिणामतः तेल के साथ प्याज को बालों पर लगाने से बाल जड़ से मजबूत बनते हैं और बालो का झड़ना रूक जाता है। इस तरह से प्याज और तेल को हफ्ते में दो से तीन बार लगा सकतें हैं। चूंकि प्याज मालिश से ब्लड सर्कुलेशन को बढ़ाता है इसलिए इसे तेल की तरह लगाना ज्यादा फायदेमंद होता है।  

रुसी और फंगल इंफेक्शन को करें दूर 
बालों में रुसी होने पर या जड़ों में फंगल इंफेक्शन होने से बाल कमजोर हो जाते हैं और जल्दी से झड़ने लगते हैं। ऐसे में बाल जड़ों से टूटना शुरू हो जाते हैं और जल्द ही सिर खाली होने लगता है। -ऐसे में बालों की जड़ों में प्याज का पेस्ट लगाएं। प्याज का पेस्ट सिर के रोमछिद्रों को पूरी तरह से खोल देता है, जिसकी वजह से फंगल इंफेक्शन और रुसी नहीं टिक पाती। 
इसके लिए प्याज का पेस्ट बना लें और 30 मिनट के लिए बालों की जड़ो में लगा कर छोड़ दें। फिर किसी माइल्ड शैम्पू से बालों को धो लें। और हां अगर डेंड्रफ ज्यादा हो तो प्याज का रस लगाएं। प्याज के रस को दही और नींबू के मिश्रण में मिला लें और बालों पर इसे लगाएं। आधे घंटे तक इसे लगा रहने दें बाद मे शैंपू से धों लें। 

उगाए नए बाल 

  • गंजे सिर पर या चकत्ते पड़ने पर बालों में प्याज के रस से मालिश करें। इससे ब्लड सर्कुलेशन तेज होती है जिससे बालों की लंबाई बढ़ती है। 
  • इसके लिए नारियल तेल में प्याज का रस इक्वल क्वांटिटी में मिलाएं और जड़ों की मालिश करें। फिर आधे घंटे के बाद बालों को धों लें। या ऐसा करें कि प्याज के रस को सिर पर लगाकर आधे घंटे के लिए छोड़ दें और बाद में शहद यानि हनी को हाथों में लेकर बालों की जड़ तक मसाज करें। इससे प्याज की महक कम हो जाती है और बालों को पोषण भी मिल जाता है। आधे घंटे बाद इसे किसी अच्छे शैंपू से धो डालें। 
  • शहद को एक जादुई औषधि कहा जाता है। और जब बात बालों तथा सिर की समस्याओं को दूर करने की हो तो ये एक बेहतर उपाय है। एक कप प्याज के रस को एक चम्मच शहद के साथ मिलाएं। इस मिश्रण को अपने सिर की त्वचा तथा बालों पर अच्छे से लगाएं। अपने सिर पर इस मिश्रण को लगाते समय हलके हाथों से गोलाकार मुद्रा में रस को लगाने की विधि अपनाएं। इसे एक घंटे या इससे ज़्यादा समय के लिए छोड़ दें, और सादे पानी और एक सौम्य हेयर क्लीनसर से बालों को धो लें।

I have pimples black marks on my face. What should I do to cure them permanently?

I have pimples black marks on my face. What should I do to cure them permanently?
Hi lybrate-user! do you still get pimples or is it just the spots remaining that is bothering you. If you are continuing to have break outs they can leave behind spots even if you don't pick on them. So it is important to treat the pimples first. There are several ways to get rid of spots. Start by avoiding sun exposure and using a sunscreen with spf of 25 or more. Creams containing glycolic acid, arbutin, licorice extract, kojic acid, etc help in clearing the spots. Few sessions of chemical peels can help in clearing these marks faster. If you have scars as well lasers, dermarollers or prp can help improve your overall skin texture and appearance. Hope this helps.

I am becoming darker day by day. What should I do to become fair. And back to my original color.
Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. Wash your your face with Aloe vera herbal face wash. 4.You can use Bio valley's skin whitening cream. 5. Apply a paste of curd, besan and turmeric on the face alternate day.

Acne or pimples is a common skin condition frequently seen in young individuals during teenage and youth years. This occurs mainly due to the action of hormones on the oil glands in the skin. The draining ducts of the oil glands get blocked and hence they are not able to drain the oil secretion. The oil and cells inside the blocked gland form a perfect environment for the growth of Propionibacterium acnes (the organism responsible for acne). Thus, it results in the formation of pimples or acne. Acne usually occurs on the face, chest, back, shoulders and neck. It is one of the most common skin conditions. Although acne is not a serious threat to the health, yet it can lead to scarring and disfigurement of the face that can have a significant impact on the patient. Acne is a dynamic conditions triggered by multiple factors such as hormones, food, climate, irregular lifestyle and stress.

I have so much of hair fall from last 2 months. What should I do so that it get stopped?

I have so much of hair fall from last 2 months. What should I do so that it get stopped?
Hi. It's normal to loose 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 Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, 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, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.
