I find this one the hardest! Caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you urinate out more liquid than you take in causing dehydration. Dehydration of your body and hair roots is another key reason for hair loss. Replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk or any other non-caffeinated drink to those shiny and healthy hair.

How to use gooseberries (Amla) for hair protection? And how to make hair pack by using it?
U can use it anyway, like putting fresh amla juice on your hair, n rinse it after half hour, or just by applying dry amla powder mixed with egg and henna as a pack. But I will also advise you to consume fresh amla juice with applying it externally.

How to solve grey hair issues? Give us some home remedies tips to protect our hair.
Premature greying is greying before the age of 30 years and after that it is natural physiological process. There are various reasons involved in it. Genetic inheritance is the main cause apart from that stress, nutritional deficiency, thyroid problem are other contributory factors. Treatment is available but it is important to check the extent of greying and condition of hair follicle. Proteins are needed to produce melanin, the pigment which gives colour to hair. Diet rich in proteins like sprouts, beans, nuts are good sources of protein. Green leafy vegetables give iron. Water intake has to be 3 lit /day. Oil the scalp 3/week with jaborandi hair oil and wash it 3/week. Consult trichologist.

My hair falling badly and have dandruff lots so what to do any antibiotics for hair control or replant.

My hair falling badly and have dandruff lots so what to do any antibiotics for hair control or replant.
Wash ur scalp with keloc zp shampoo thrice weekly.To decide whether u need transplant or not,i vil have to assess ur scalp for which I need pictures.Hair fall is mainly due to hormonal and genetic reasons.There are no homeremedies that vil help or quick responses for it. It can definitely be controlled. It's important to eat plenty of pulses, fish, meat and milk. Drink at least two litres water everyday. Exercise regularly. Don't stress out because you don't have long hair or because your hair's falling. Avoid all forms of chemicals, hot devices and blowdryers to prevent hair damage. Massage scalp and wash twice or thrice a week. Don't overshampoo, it'll spoil hair. Don't tie up wet hair and sleep, it'll get infected. If any infections, g et it treated. A thorough blood check up is needed to eliminate autoimmune, hormonal and nutritional diseases. Apart from this, treatment may b needed in resistant cases.

I have a skin infections that's concentrated in my groin area but has spread to a few places across my body. There's a lot of itching in my inner thighs and it started most probably because of ringworm. The ringworm rash is also there on my hand and legs in 3-4 places. The itching in the groin area and even outside the anus is very annoying. Now, there are white circles/patches on my scrotum which don't itch but are still scary.

Excessive weight gain or loss should be avoided as it can lead to stretch marks. Otherwise gymming is good for skin health.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.
