How To Prevent Grey Hair and Loss Of Hair

1. Take treatment for cold: Don’t let kapha accumulate in your head. People who suffer perpetually from cold are more susceptible to get grey hair at an early age. Do not take a persisting common cold lightly. Seek treatment.

2. Take treatment for sinusitis: Do not neglect sinusitis.. It has adverse effect on hair.

3. Good Digestion: Make sure that your digestive system functions well, your liver is healthy and you do not suffer from other gastric troubles. A sluggish liver and other digestive problems promote hair loss and turn the hair grey.

4. Head Massage: Regular care and an ayurvedic massage of the head is essential to revitalize the scalp.

5. Apply Essential Oils: Bhringaraaja referred to askeshraja or ‘king of the hair’ is an excellent rejuvenator. It also promotes hair growth and makes it black and lustrous. It is the best known herb to effectively stop and reverse balding and premature graying. It cools the brain and helps calm the mind from excessive activity, thus promoting sound sleep. Bhringaraaja is taken internally and used externally as Bhringraj oil.

6. Eat Copper Rich Foods: Sometimes grey hair begins to appear due to lack of copper in your diet. Take a multi-vitamin daily as most of them contain copper. Foods that are rich in copper are turnip greens, lima beans, yams, spinach, and most meats. Copper is also found in blackberries.pineapple. pomegranates, almonds and pumpkin seeds.

Yoga To Prevent Hair Loss And Gray Hair

According to yoga, nerve endings below the fingernails are directly connected to the roots of a person’s hair. Rubbing the nails against one another improves the blood circulation in the scalp, which in turn reduces grey hair. Yoga Asana and Kapalbhati is also said to help in arresting the greying process.

1. Prasana Mudra:

Method: Keep hand near the chest. Rub the nails of the eight fingers against each other for 5 to 10 minutes for 30 days. The thumbs should be straight.

Benefits: This slows down hair loss, with reduction of gray hair and split ends. It makes hair lustrous and strong.

2. Mandukasana

Mandukasana is very good for premature greying hair and help to stop further graying of hair. It is also useful for some other illness like constipation, diabetes and digestive disorders, effectively reduce weight of thighs, hips and the abdomen. This asana strengthens the lower parts of the loins.

Diet

1. Avoid Pitta-aggravating foods like spicy, heavy, and oily foods, as well as tea and coffee.
2. Avoid refined foods, refined sugar, junk food, and alcoholic and carbonated drinks.
3. Increase intake of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and vegetable juice prepared from lettuce, carrot, capsicum, and alfalfa.

Sir how can I reduce my hair loss and how can I get rid of abdominal pain after eating some spicy food.

Sir how can I reduce my hair loss and how can I get rid of abdominal pain after eating some spicy food.
Milk and other dairy products are rich sources of calcium and vitamin d. Vitamin d helps the body absorb calcium, so it is important that you consume it along with calcium-rich foods. Since hair is made up mostly of protein, it is necessary that protein-rich foods are supplied to the body to keep the hair healthy. Calcium- and protein-rich foods include yogurt, cheese, tofu, eggs and soy milk.

*your usual hair dye has large doses of ammonia, which changes hair texture, dries out the scalp and almost leads to hair fall. Natural products like shikakai and amla are better than chemical compositions of manufactured shampoos. *hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. We have good treatment in homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. These medicines are given internally, promote healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Take homoeopathic medicine acid phos 30 twice daily

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.

I am 23 years old. My skin is oily. And I have blackheads on my face.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
The bumps appear dark not because of dirt but as a result of oxidization. This happens when the clogged pores are exposed to the air. Factors like hormonal changes in the body, excessive use of cosmetic products, improper skin care, stress and genetics contribute to this problem. Blackheads commonly occur on the face, particularly the nose. They can also appear on the chest, back, neck, arms and shoulders. If left untreated, they can spur acne breakouts. There are many prescription medicines for the treatment of blackheads, but you can always try natural treatments. With simple ingredients easily found in most kitchens, you can treat your blackheads within a few days green tea green tea can also be used to treat blackheads. 1. Mix one teaspoon of dry green tea leaves with a little water to make a paste. 2. Gently scrub the paste over the affected area for two to three minutes. This scrub deep cleans oily skin and helps unclog pores. 3. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. Honey the balancing quality present in honey is good for both oily skin and blackheads. Honey hydrates as well as tightens the skin pores, giving you a clear complexion. 1. Apply some pure honey on your face. Leave it on for about 10 minutes. 2. Rinse your face with lukewarm water. Turmeric turmeric, which works well for minor burns, can also be used to treat blackheads? mix some turmeric powder with two tablespoons of mint juice. Apply it to the affected areas. Allow it to dry for a few minutes and then wash the area with lukewarm water. You can also make a thick paste by mixing red sandalwood, turmeric powder and milk together. Apply it on the affected area and after 10 minutes wash the skin with water any queries inform me.

You might require a CT scan of Nose and paranasal sinus to rule out sinusitis. Consult an experienced ENT specialist for expert opinion. If it's just allergic sinusitis, you might just require steroids spray which can be prescribed by ENT surgeon onlu, if there is no relief from montiar tabs.

Methi or fenugreek seeds contain hormone antecedents that enhance hair growth and help rebuild hair follicles. They also contain proteins and nicotinic acid that stimulate hair growth. Apply methi paste to scalp, leave 30 mins and wash with lukewarm water. Better to take homoeopathy medicines for 100% results. Now are you taking any medicines for this?

- do not scratch or squeeze the lesions - do not apply creams or oils on face - do not apply hair oils or wash oil within 1 hour of application - take plenty of fluids - wash your face 2-3 times daily especially when it's oily - certain foods can increase acne such as chocolates, oily food etc, avoid these if they increase acne - take plenty of fluids and fruits - dandruff can also increase acne, so use anti-dandruff shampoo if you have acne. - also, for the marks, try to avoid sunexposure as far as possible (use broadspectrum gel based sunscreen, cover the face while outside during sunlight hours)
