Health Tips For Control Of Hair Fall - Hair fall is experienced by most individuals in their lifetime. Most of the time hair fall goes unnoticed if the density of hair is good. Patients experience the hair fall though they are taking good diet and infact water intake is normal and even if they do not have any significant systemic disease. 1.Don't go for hair straightening and vigrous heat treatments if you are having hair fall. Its a myth that straightening would prevent hair fall. 2.Cover your hair when you are taking steam, sauana,or hot water bath 3.Treat your hair as a baby and pamper them. Do not use harsh shampoos and soap instead use a mild medicated shampoo and conditioner and infact wash your hair minimum twice in a week 4. Do not comb the hair when they are wet, let them dry a bit before you comb 5. You can oil the hair 1 hr. Before shampooing or washing, no neec to apply oil overnight. 6.Males And females have different pattern of hair loss and needs seperate consideration and treatment. 7. Wash your hair preferrably with luke warm water, avoid using hard water or underground water for washing them. 8.Hair Fall May expose some areas if your scalp, try to change combing pattern and do not tie your hair very tight. 9. Anti hair fall shampoos and serums may be applied after consultation with the dermatologist 10. With age hair starts thinning, this happens because the body's capacity to absorb nutrients decrease. The hair needs 22 amino acids to grow. Due to lack of amino acids from the diet the hair appears thin. However you can prevent the hair fall due to aging. You need to have soya beans, lean meat, dairy products, fish, eggs and nuts. You can also have fish oil tablets or supplements which is rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Red Grape Seedsand Sprouts also are good along with Pappaya and Carrots 11. Rule out thyroid disorders, Anaemia and other major systemic issues by consulting a good dermatologist 12. Avoid high fat and high sugar diet, like gym anabolic steroids .13. Do not do crash dieting. Hair fall or loss is a multifactorial problem where hereditary along with environmental factors and diet play an important role. Iron deficiency along with essential things like biotin, vitamin A along with other nutrients have a major role to play. Serums,tablets along with specified shampoos and conditioners can also help. Most of the time, this loss is progressive and may take 4-6 months to respond to treatment. Sooner the treatment is started better are the results. Though it's important to understand that some alopecia problems may not respond to best of the treatment modalities .So it's important to consult a good dermatologist on time .Mesotherapy and Prp are promising therapies which can be tried. All these treatment definitely need maintenance sessions along with local lotions application under the supervision of dermatologist. Patients need multiple sessions for better outcome along with medical analysis .One can take biotin tablets along with Vitamin A rich diet and lots of red wine grapes with seeds. Prp results may vary from patients to patients and from Doctor to doctor depending upon how the prp is made. Platelets ideally should be concentrated in house and injected immediately with aseptic precautions and at particular level and quantity for better results. Ideally it should be done by dermatologist himself or herself without relying on technicians /nurses for best results. We as the pioneer in hair loss treatment would suggest you to have all this in mind before you go for treatment for hair loss or hair fall. Ofcourse some persistent effort by the patient and its importance in final result can not be ruled out. All centres have their own protocols for the technique but the best results are obtained by the technique which keeps platelets in the solution in their viable form. We have the latest automated technology which is virtually painless for Injection. Prp treatment thus can be done in a very comfortable way with this latest technique. Prp can be done for both females and males and at any age after 18 years. Ofcourse sooner it's started better is the outcome. Maintenance sessions are required and interval may vary from patient to patient as hair loss issue is a continuing process and thus patient may need multiple touch up sessions.

From the past 2 years, I am suffering from severe hairfall and dandruff. How to stop it?

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Nutrition Certification,Registered Dietitian

Hair loss and dandruff can be controlled by - 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. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 6. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 7. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 8. 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. 9. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Sir I want to strong hair? How I can get it. My hairfall and dandruff problems remain same.

How I can get it.
My hairfall and dandruff problems remain same.
Hair fall may be attributed to different reasons like using artificial colors, hair styling, chemicals etc. It may be due to some internal weakness also. Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs. Avoid using comb in wet hairs.

How to get rid of body hairs naturally. Does waxing reduce hair density. How can I reduce body hair growth?

How to get rid of body hairs naturally. Does waxing reduce hair density. How can I reduce body hair growth?
Hello, One can't get rid of body hair in males naturally, but there are different types of LASER Therapies available in the market for hair removal. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. And later in few cases, maintenance sittings are also needed in future. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking. You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely. The rate varies from place to place and area to be treated (e.g. Rs. 500/ sitting for upperlips).

Hello friends!

I’m Dr.S. K Chawla, plastic and cosmetic surgeon at South Delhi Cosmetic Clinic. I also attend the Fortis Hospital.

Today we are going to discuss something about non-surgical treatment or facial enhancement or improvement so that one should look young, good and beautiful. We have lot of facial non-surgical treatments available. Out of these Botox and fillers are commonly being used nowadays. As most of our clients they are not interested in surgical treatment and they demand non-surgical treatment to improve their facial features so we have Botox and fillers. Botox is a medicine which relax your facial muscles and it gives you the wrinkle free face. This is used by giving injections. This injection is almost painless because we have applied numbing cream on the area where you feel you have wrinkles or you have an enhance you want to remove the wrinkle from any particular area so we apply the numbing cream at least 40 minutes before. After that we give injections. This injection relax your muscles, so when the muscles contract you don’t have wrinkles. But this is a very demanding procedure and it should be done by a medical person. Second one is the facial fillers, fillers is a material which is use to fill a particular area on your face so that it gives the volume to the face. Because with the increasing age your face loose volume from certain area and because of the loss of volume of face look looks age aging that is why the people wants to look younger and we give them fillers in that particular area. So this filler is also given by injection, it has no side effects, it will give you effect at least for 8-10 months. After 8-10 months if you want you get it again.

Use Tea Tree face wash and Toner twice daily. Use AHA Glow face wash once in a day. Use Sunscreen with SPF 30 daily. Use natural face pack of Multani Mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- Do not eat Junk, Eat more Vegetables and fruits especially with Vitamin C.
