Dark circles are because of lack of nutrients. Sleep and weakness. So take proper nutrients and drink plenty of juices and sleep for atleast 7 hours a day. Drink 7-8 glasses of water every day.

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

How to Take Care of Your Hair?

Long Hair:-

Long hair is an all time cherished dream of girls and women. I have been seeing patients of hair loss and they would always recall their good days when they used to have good lengthy hair. They would invariably lament about the loss of long hair they were having in teenage and before marriage. This is the type of concern women have for their hair. Having lusty, shining, long hair is a sign of beauty and feminine grace. Some precautions have to be taken for all types of hair, which are briefed in following heading but long hair need utmost care so that they are not lost easily.

  • No brushing should be done immediately after washing.
  • Winding the hair, encasing them in rubber bands and then fixing clips or hooks should be done lightly and never too tightly.
  • Winding the hair into tight plaits and then wearing chignon (coil of hair worn at the back of head) pulls the hair form scalp. I have seen many patients, especially girls, having this habit that ultimately ends in bald spots in head.
  • Similar is the case with the girls who bind their back hairs in ponytails or buns. One should not confine to one style and go on changing the style so that the hair do not experience a direct pull in this fashion everyday and get pulled.
  • Regarding types of curlers, rollers, combs, brushes, etc., these topics are discussed here below under different types of hair. Those rules are applicable for long hair,

Oily Hair:-

  • If you do not apply little amount of oil over the hair regularly, you will loose the hair and their shine.
  • The best is to adopt the homeopathic method, ‘like cures like’ Apply little oil to the greasy scalp. Since the scalp itself is producing more of oil, the presence of oil on the scalp would stop production of oil from within. The imbalance will thus be overruled.
  • If you are washing the hair twice in a week (women), make it thrice a week. Apply some oil, massage it into scalp and leave it for at least one hour on your scalp before washing it with shampoo. Men should do it five times a week.
  • If you are using harsh, highly scented and strong hair-care products like soaps, shampoos and oils, leave them.
  • Improve your diet to make it nutritional.
  • Take half a bottle of distilled water and add some lemon juice in it. Now rinse your hair with this mixture to remove oiliness of hair.
  • It is always in your own interest that you should consult a beauty parlor when you do not find relief after testing the mentioned methods. No relief means that you need help of a conditioner to remove/rectify oiliness.

 

Dry Hair:-

  • Use of heat-styling appliances; dryers for drying the hair after washing and over-exposure to the sun should   be avoided.
  • Take nutritional food.
  • Do not adopt rigorous cleaning methods or routine. Use a good hair oil to massage the hair. If the dryness is more, the hair become brittle. Do not massage the    scalp vigorously.
  • Steaming the hair once a fortnight also helps in dry hairs. Massaging and steaming as a follow-up gives good result.
  • Do not wash the hair frequently with shampoo.
  • Do not comb or brush strongly.

 

WAVY HAIR (Hairs Having Waves):-

  • Wavy hairs are not curly but have waves as you find in the sea or sand dunes.
  •   Those who have wavy hair, they should wash their hair with a shampoo that has shine enhancing gradients.
    •   After washing, dry the hair in natural ways and separate the hair with comb that has wide-teeth so that there is no entanglement and    pulling while combing the hair.
  • Wavy hair needs good conditioners and more care than straight hair.

       

Straight Hair:-

  • Straight hair lies flat on the scalp.
  • Since such hair lie flat, they gather more dust. Naturally these straight hair are mostly dense and  hence they need deep cleaning shampoo.
  • Such hair needs at least three washing a week.
  • They are more prone to develop dandruff.
  • Oiling and massaging the scalp is essential and it should be one night before washing schedule.

 

Curly Hair:-

  • Curly hair get dry very soon. 
  • For washing curly hair, a shampoo with good moisture-gradient is necessary.
  • To bring a shine to curly hair, dry them with towel and expose to sun or natural air. In curly hairs, fingers reach easily up to the scalp. Use your fingers to disentangle them and then use wide toothed comb or brush to keep them at place.

Use Homoeopathy for any type of hair problem.

I am 24 years old. I have so many pimples. The pimples are creating black marks. So now what can I do? Please advise.

I am 24 years old. I have so many pimples. The pimples are creating black marks. So now what can I do? Please advise.
do let me know if you also have blackheads? and what current medications and remedies you already tried to treat acne? acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e or any self prescribed preparations on scars or pimples. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Best Fruits for Hair Growth

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Best Fruits for Hair Growth

Hair growth is now a days a top most priority for everyone. Be it of any age group people, everyone wants to have a good volume of hair. Fruits are always been considered as a good source of vitamins and fibre. They help by making scalp and hair roots grow strong. This ensures a proper blood circulation in the scalp that in turn helps in hair growth! Below are few fruits name which are not only beneficial to our health but are also good for hair growth. 

  1. Gooseberry / Amala: Adding amla paste or oil in our hair packs conditions the hair to a great extent preventing them from split ends. Dried amla paste helps in opening of the pores helping the scalp to produce natural oils which not only encourages hair re-growth gives extra shine to the hairs.

  2. Coconut: Coconut is useful in many ways for our hair and skin. The fats found in coconut, give moisture in hair and condition our hair. Coconut oil is widely used for good hair and scalp massage as it gives relations and also opens up the pores. Even many people use coconut water to wash their hairs.

  3. Pomegranates: Drinking pomegranate juice helps in strengthening hair follicles. Hair loss can be also prevented by using pomegranate extract. Pomegranate seed oil is used in many spas for hair massage. It stimulates hair growth making hair stronger, thick and healthy. One of the other important benefits of pomogranates is that it helps in combating other hair loss problems such as dandruff, itching etc.

  4. Citrus fruits like oranges, lemon: One of the essential components for hair growth is Vitamin C. Having vitamin C deficiency can make our hairs weak, lustreless, and prone to breakage. It helps in preventing premature greying of the hairs. Juices of vitamin C-containing fruits help in controlling dandruff. We know how dried peel paste is useful for our skin but very few of us know that dries peel paste can be used in our hair pack too. It cleanses the scalp and works as an excellent conditioner giving the hairs volume and shine. Some fruits like passion fruit, guava, black currants, bread fruit and kiwi help in promoting hair thickness as well as growth.

  5. Bananas: Bananas contain potassium, so when banana paste is applied to the hairs it softens the hair. Banana paste is used in many hair packs for hair growth, give shine and manageability. Bananas contain natural oils that help in soften hairs and protect the natural elasticity of the hairs by preventing split ends and breakage.

  6. Strawberries: Strawberry is a good source of important minerals such as copper, manganese and magnesium. These minerals produce complexes that can inhibit fungal growth on the scalp. Strawberry also protects the scalp cell membranes from other problems which generally grow when we come in contact with water.

  7. Apple: Paste of the leaves and skin of green apple works wonders to cure dandruff. This paste can be used as a shampoo too. Applying green apple juice is also a simple home-made remedy for strengthening the locks, enhancing hair growth and preventing hair loss. Apple also balances the hair and scalp pH, treating dandruff and hair loss problems.

  8. Avocado: Avocado contain lots of vital nutrients including important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B, C, E, K and iron, copper, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus which is very useful in keeping our skin and hair hydrated. Avocado oil adds shine and lustre to hair as well as prevents hair loss and promoting hair growth. Simple avocado paste when applied in hair conditions the hair too.

  9. Papaya: Papaya is rich in nutrients which help preventing baldness, and boosts hair-growth giving strengthen to the hairs. Papaya works greatly also for treating and controlling dandruff. Papaya leaf extracts when used as a conditioner on dull, unruly and lifeless hair, it results into thick, strong, shiny and healthy hair.

Dear lybrate user lybrate-user, the word depression is becoming very common now a days, any one who feels any problem at any time says I am depress. Ups and downs are part of life, but you are not feeling well then this is matter for concern and you need proper solution for this please take help of any professional regarding this. If you need my help you can contact me. Lets come to your problem now --try to make yourself busy, as much you will make yourself busy you will not get time to think on any unnecessary topic. Make some new friends, join any hobby class, try something new because according to many research when we find something new intresting we forget everything for some time its just like hangover. You can practically feel this, remember first time when you got your mobile how much you were intrested. The moral of the story is do something new whatever you find new and intresting but do atleast any something so that your brain should be in motion. Take care.

Hello, you can take homoeopathic medicine berberis aquifolium 30 (4 drops in little water) twice a day for 15 days and revert. *clean your skin gently with a mild face wash removing all dirt or make-up. Wash many times a day with plain water. *get an adequate amount of sleep. *avoid touching your face with your hands or try to squeeze pimples, it may leave permanent scars and spread the infection. *ensure that you drink10-12 glasses of water daily. *avoid fried and spicy food. *include fruits, raw vegetables and fresh vegetable juices in your diet. *avoid stress and anger. *avoid harsh skin products.

Hello sir, I have Three queries. First is regarding my dandruff problem. I am 34 years male. Since 15 years I have dandruff problem. Mine is a oily skin and requires head bath daily and I do head bath daily with Head and shoulders shampoo. Some times during winter and due to change of water, the intensity is high. Once I use selsun shampoo it would be alright. And later again the dandruff will appear after 2-3 months later. Is my practice correct. Is it fine to use shampoo like head and shoulder daily? Kindly suggest the best practice and right shampoo for my daily use. Second, I have chronic Urticaria since 1.5 years. I noticed it during last winter. Since it was mild. I did not bother. But this again repeated during this winter during Oct 16 and still continuing. The severity is more in winter and now the severity reduced but still persists. As per dermatologist recommendation, I stopped certain food items but still no use. Whe it's severe I use Tab. Dazit and Levocet daily. Kindly suggest the permanent solution for this Urticaria issue. Third, My wife hair fall issue, after having two kids 4 years old and 1.5 years old, she got severe hair fall issue since 1st pregnancy. Till now it's not stopped. Since 1 month she is using Tab. follihair daily as recommended by endocrinologist as she developed hypothyroidism during 2nd pregnancy. We both stay in Bangalore. We use mild hard water for daily bathing. Kindly suggest the right solution to reduce her severe hair fall problem. Many thanks in advance.

I hope this message finds you in good health. To prevent hair fall, you can follow some simple steps as listed below: 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, yogurt 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. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion.

Hello lybrate-user- hair fall is generally associated with poor diet and schedule. Follow this ayurvedic tips- a) avoid excess usage of shampoo or other chemical products like dye etc. B) oil your scalp daily (use mahabhringraj hair oil) c) go to bed before 10 pm, late night sessions harms hair follicle a lot. D) avoid excess spicy diet and fast food.
