Combing Your Hair - Common Mistakes That We All Make!

MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy, MBBS

Combing Your Hair - Common Mistakes That We All Make!

You will be surprised to know that about 35 million men and 21 million women suffer from excessive hairfall in India. Excessive hair fall can be the result of certain illnesses, hormonal changes, over-use of hair products that contain chemicals or a poor diet. What you may not have considered is that you can also lose a lot of hair by combing it the wrong way.

Check if you’re making these common combing mistakes.

Are you combing your hair from the roots down?
If you’re combing your hair you should always start from the middle while working it downwards. Move the comb upwards (near the roots) only when there are no more tangles remaining in the bottom half.
If you start combing from your roots, you may have to fight more tangles on the way to the bottom. This induces strain on your scalp, and increases hair breakage. The end result is weak hair and roots, and more hair fall.

Are you combing post the application of a hair product?
A comb should never be used just after the application of a hair paste, serum or cream for treatment or styling. You must use only your fingers to comb through your hair once you've applied a styling product.
If you use a comb post-application of a styling product, it not only loses its effect, but may also harm your hair and its texture.Consequently, it may lead to increased breakage and hair loss over time.

Are you detangling your hair after shampooing or washing?
Hair is known to be at its weakest when wet, which can also make it prone to tangling. Combing and excessive pulling of tangled, wet hair increases your chances of hair breakage and eventual hair loss.
To avert water-induced frowns, you can try giving a comb-through before wetting your hair in the shower. Alternatively, you can also try combing your hair during a shower. Apply the conditioner first; next, untangle the strands by using only your fingers, and then use a wide-toothed comb just before washing.

Are you regularly back-combing your hair?
Sometimes people back-comb their hair from the roots working towards the ends. This hair teasing technique adds volume and texture to your hair. Although it’s a great trick, its regular use may damage your hair cuticles, which as a result, may also ruin your hair’s quality, lead to frizzy hair and increase breakage and hair loss.

To get the element of volume without the damage, you can try light hair sprays, which help you in getting a similar look.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Major Reasons Behind Aging

You must have seen many people who are older than their age. Except for some exceptions, bad lifestyle is responsible for most people being older than they are. The way we live and live our lives, it is directly impact on our mental and physical health. This poor lifestyle is gaining prematurely. Age gradient is a normal process. It cannot be stopped. However, the problem occurs when a person of 30yrs starts to feel like 40yrs. That is bigger than your age. The key reason for aging is irregular lifestyle, wrong eating habits, insomnia, excessive intake of fast food and living lifestyle. 

Here is the list of things, which is directly responsible for the aging:

  • Wrong Food - The biggest hand in Aging is the wrong food. Fast food has replaced green vegetables and fruits. People prefer to eat outside instead of home. Actually, the balance between taste and health has gone wrong.

  • Lack of Exercise - Exercise helps in toning your muscles and increases blood circulation. Regular exercise shows a different brightness and energy on your skin, which helps to keep the effects of aging away.

  • Lack of Sleep – Do you know your skin gets repair in the night while sleeping? Not taking the ample amount of sleep will also enhances the problem of aging. In today's lifestyle, everyone is so busy, so that no one is able to take enough sleep and because of this, we all invite not even aging but other diseases too.

  • Excessive Alcohol Consumption – Alcohol makes our skin dry from inside. skin that's dry from the inside out not only wrinkles more quickly than nice, moist skin does, but it can take on a pale or grey cast -- a condition that is exacerbated by the fact that alcohol also robs the body of vitamin A -- an antioxidant that's critical for cell renewal and turnover. 

  • SmokingSmoking Cigarette is a fashion. If you smoke or spend time with smokers, then cigarette smoke increases the risk of aggravation, because smoking cigarette causes significant damage to the health, which clearly affects our skin. Simultaneously, cigarette smoke increases wrinkles and dryness on the skin.

  • Stress - It would not be wrong to call it the 'biggest' donation of a metropolitan lifestyle. Stress pulls the face muscles, the stereotypes of anxiety appear on your face.

  • Lack of water - Water not only prevents the problem of aging but also makes the skin healthy and glowing. But due to sedentary lifestyle, people forget to take care of their health, which includes the skin care as well. Now days everyone prefers cold beverages instead of water, which is acidic, which affects skin a lot.

By improving these habits and altering lifestyle, we can move away from the effects of aging.

Skin Care in Winters

It is very important to take care of the skin in every season, but the problem of the skin arises most of the time in cold weather. Because cold winds that run during this time steal the moisture of our skin and make them tender, due to low humidity.

Cystic Acne - Know The Primary Reasons Behind It!

Cystic Acne - Know The Primary Reasons Behind It!

Cystic acne is a dermatological condition in which the skin pores get blocked causing infection and inflammation. Over secretion of sebum creates an optimal environment for the bacteria trapped in the pores to thrive; and the bacterium, Propionibacterium acnes is responsible for this condition.

This form of acne occurs when the infection occurs deep within the skin causing a painful, swollen, red bump filled with pus. It usually takes place during teens or the late 20's. An estimated, 80% of the people suffer from cystic acne between 11 and 30 years of age.

The primary reasons for cystic acne are:

  • Hormonal changes pertaining to puberty, menstruation, pregnancy or birth control
  • Greasy cosmetics, lotions, and soaps that cause allergy can also lead to this form of acne
  • An inherited tendency for acne can also be a likely cause

Cystic acne tends to produce inflammatory cysts and nodules, which are visible and painful. In addition, they pose the danger of causing visible scarring and shallow depressions on the face.

Usual medicines, which are used to treat mild acne, have little effect on cystic acne, what you must do in this case:

  • Use of oral antibiotics, which helps to keep the bacteria in check and also reduce inflammation
  • Birth control pills are often effective treatment for regulating hormones in women

Some of the preventative measures would be:

  • Not touching the cysts is advisable as it can lead the infection to spread
  • Relaxation and adequate sleep are also recommended as stress causes the body to release more hormones which can worsen the condition
  • Some studies indicate diet low in sugar also help to reduce the condition

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
