There are many reasons for hair fall or thinning of hair on scalp. So first and foremost we have to find the cause with the help of detailed history and examination. Some of the common causes are nutritional deficiency, hormonal causes like androgenic alopecia or patterned baldness, hypothyroidism, telogen effluvium etc. Unless we find and treat the cause there is no point in giving non specific treatment. Oils or shampoos do not have any effect on hair growth as they are not absorbed in the skin. Moreover, you should never self treat with anything. Please call me or send photographs using online consult option for proper diagnosis and detailed prescription.

Hair Detox

Hair Detox

One way to ensure your hair grows long and healthy is to go a step further than shampooing by doing a scalp detox treatment. At times we forget that our scalp is living and breathing, and the hair strands are dead. We spend so much time, energy, and products on the hair on our head and neglect the reason why we have it in the first place; it grows from the scalp.

How to detox your scalp:

A scalp detox treatment includes massaging in a mask to exfoliate the scalp, which unclogs your pores of dead skin and removes toxins from the hair follicles, roots, and oil glands.

For a simple at home DIY scalp mask recipe, you will need:

1. 1 teaspoon of baking soda

2. 2 tablespoons of olive oil

3. 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

To prevent dry hair and scalp, this mask treatment is for a deep clarifying cleanse and should not be used more than once a month.

Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a small container

Step 2: Part your hair in small sections and apply the mask down each part on the scalp

Step 3: Massage the mask into the scalp in a gentle circular motion

Step 4: Cover your hair and scalp with a shower cap for 10 -15 minutes

Step 5: Shampoo and conditioner your hair as normal.

Penis Enlargement Exercise Lubricants - Which Ones Are the Best Ones?

Penis Enlargement Exercise Lubricants - Which Ones Are the Best Ones?

You cannot succeed in enlarging your penis without using the best penis enlargement exercise lubricants for the matter - remember that. The good news is that there are many great penis enlargement exercise lubricants for you to choose from in today's market. You just have to figure out what you need first.

Not all of the penis enlargement exercise lubricants in today's market will be effective, though. While moisturizer can work as a lubricant, for instance, it wouldn't exactly be a good idea to use it over and over again in the long term. If your main goal is to get a bigger penis, then you will need to try something stronger and more effective than basic moisturizer. Otherwise, you might not achieve the goals of your enlargement plans in the end.

Here are the most popular penis enlargement exercise lubricants to date:

1. Lotion

Men who don't want to spend extra money on lubricants that they can use during their penile exercises can simply look for lotion lying around at home and just use that during each exercise. The good news is that you don't have to picky with lotion because they can all be used for penis enlargement as long as they aren't too perfumed or filled with vitamins.

2. Oil-Based Lubricants

Men who want to stay completely safe while exercising their manhood can look for products that are especially made for penile exercises. There are various oil-based lubricants that can be found at grocery stores for this special use. Also called penis exercise oils, these oils also have other uses and can even be used with other types of lubricants as you see fit.

3. Water-Based Lubricants

If oil-based lubricants don't sound very attractive to you, you can turn to water-based lubricants instead. Water-based lubricants have a lot of benefits. For starters, they don't just work well for penile exercises; they work well in bed, too.

When used for penile exercises, though, they are easily reactivated with mere water. Although this may sound like a great trait, there are some men out there who find it a hassle to have to reactivate their penis enlargement exercise lubricants. If you aren't comfortable with having to reactivate yours, then you might want to find another product that will suit your needs better instead.

4. Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum jelly is another popular lubricant for penile exercises, mainly because it doesn't dry out very quickly. Aside from that, it can also protect the penis from chafing. Petroleum jelly can get a bit messy, though, so you will have to consider the fact that cleaning up after each exercise will be part of your journey if you opt for this particular product.

5. Sexual Lubricants

There are a lot of sexual lubricants in today's market that can get the job done for you, as well. Keep in mind that sexual lubricants dry up fairly quickly, though, so you will need to reapply it as you go along. If your penis exercise routine is a fairly long one, this could slow things down for you and you could end up using up your lubricant quite quickly.

Naturally, the exercises that you choose to follow are still more important than the lubricants that you choose to use. After all, the exercises that you follow will determine how successful your enlargement routine is in the end, including how many gains you get and how much longer or thicker your manhood becomes.

No matter which product you opt for when it comes to this, though, you have to make sure you avoid products like soap or shampoo for the job because these products may lead to irritation, amongst other things.

Great Penis Enlargement Exercises - How Does Wet Milking Work?

Great Penis Enlargement Exercises - How Does Wet Milking Work?

Nowadays, men all over the world look for great penis enlargement exercises that they can follow because they want to get bigger penises. This really isn't surprising, though, seeing as women all over the world look for ways on how to get better satisfaction in bed, as well.

  • More often than not, relationships completely fall apart because one of the people involved is no longer satisfied with their partner. So, if you want to build a better relationship with your significant other, then turning to great penis enlargement exercises to improve your physical appearance and your penile size would be a great step forward.
  • Generally speaking, there are quite a lot of great penis enlargement exercises out there that you can try out to improve your penile size. However, you should know that they aren't all effective and safe. One of the great penis enlargement exercises that are effective and safe would be wet milking.
  • If you have never heard of wet milking before, then all you really need to know is that you will need a reliable lubricant to get started with it. Do not use shampoo or soap when it comes to this, though, as they might just irritate your penis. Do not do this exercise with a full erection, either, as you might unintentionally hurt your manhood in the process.
  • To do the wet milking exercise, start by warming up your manhood and the area around it. While there are various ways to warm up the penis, it would help to stick to the easiest ones. You can either take a hot shower or use a hot towel to wrap around it, for example.
  • After successfully warming up the area, apply some lubricant as needed. Make sure you spread the lubricant all around your manhood to ensure that you do this exercise right. If you feel like your lubrication is starting to dry up in the middle of the exercise, just take a break and add some more as needed. As mentioned earlier, though, do not give yourself a full erection when doing this exercise. A partial erection of up to 60% should be enough to get the job done.

Once you are all lubed up, create an OK sign with your left hand's forefinger and thumb and grip the base of your manhood. Make sure that your hand's palm is facing away from the body while you do this.

The next step is to gently pull your penis away from the body. After that, slide your fingers through the shaft until you reach the tip of your penis. Then, do the exact same thing with your other hand. Keep repeating these motions rhythmically similar to the way that a man would do while milking a cow. This is where the name of this exercise came from to begin with. You can look at it as reverse or one-way masturbation, as well, though. Anyway, keep doing these motions for as long as you want and for as many times as you want in order to get the job done.

Once again: when doing great penis enlargement exercises such as this one, it would be important to focus on not getting a full erection. If you feel like your penis is too erect at any point during these great penis enlargement exercises, just stop and relax until the erection subsides. Conversely, if you feel like you might ejaculate anytime soon, stop touching yourself completely and resist the urge to do so, no matter how good it might feel. Remember: the goal here is to enlarge your penile size, not to give yourself pleasure.

Penis Enlargement Exercises - How to Get a Bigger Penis Size Through Milking?

Most men nowadays are interested in getting a bigger penis, which is why penis enlargement exercises have experienced a sudden surge of interest in today's market. One of the reasons behind this is that women are always complaining about not being satisfied in bed and even leave their partners behind when they don't get what they want.

A lot of the time, men tend to blame their manhood for not being big enough. So, if you want to ensure that your relationships always succeed, then look into penis enlargement exercises today and start improving your penile size.

  • There are various penis enlargement exercises out there that you can explore and look into. However, you need to know that they aren't all safe and effective. The most effective penis enlargement exercises, though, are the ones that involve a wet treatment, such as wet milking.
  • When it comes to this, you will need a reliable lubricant by your side. It is important not to use shampoo or soap as your lubricant, though, because you might just irritate your manhood in the process. It is also important not to do these penis enlargement exercises with a full erection. Keep reading to find out more tips on wet milking.
  • To start, you will need to warm up your penis and the whole area surrounding it. Some of the easiest ways to do this would be through a hot shower or by placing a warm washcloth on your penis. If you opt for the latter, make sure that the washcloth isn't too hot, though. After all, you don't want to scald your goods by mistake.
  • After that, dry your penis off as well as you can and then lubricate it with a top quality lubricant. It would be important to put a lot of lubrication on your penis to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible. Make sure you lubricate your entire penis, too. If, at any point during the exercise, you feel like your penis feels too dry, just add some extra lubricant as you go along. Again, it would be vital not to have a full erection when it comes to this. If you end up with a full erection at any point, take a break and wait for it to subside before you continue with the exercise.
  • Once you are properly lubricated and ready to go, create an OK sign with your left hand's forefinger and thumb and hold your penile base with it. Take note that your palm should be facing your body as you do this. After that, carefully pull your penis away from the body by sliding your hand down the penile shaft and onto the tip. Do the same thing with your other hand afterwards.
  • Keep doing this movement over and over again in a rhythmic manner and with alternating hands - the same way you would milk a cow. On another note, you can look at it as masturbating in a single direction, as well. Whatever you want to call it, though, make sure you repeat the proper motions over and over again for as many times as you want to.
  • While doing penis enlargement exercises, keep in mind that your goal isn't to feel good about yourself. This means that you always have to resist the urge to ejaculate, no matter how much you want to. If you ever feel like you are on the brink of ejaculation, take a break and focus on your ultimate goal: to enlarge your penis. Once you have the proper goal in mind, remind yourself not to become too erect and then simply continue your exercises as needed.
