Use soft water for hair hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid we have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin food -have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. -avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. -use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. - hard water is harmful. Boiling and cooling will reduce hardness. - when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. - use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair.

She needs support and for that she needs to open her heart out with any relationship and marriage expert. This is needed immediately as early as possible. If she doesn't want to go and meet the expert she can connect online as well. This depression takes some time because the breakup is very very fresh. Till then take care that she doesn't harm herself and for that in spite of arguing just spend sometime with her and only listen to her with empathy and compassion. Decide and make a direct contact either online or in person.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

There are many factors that may have influenced this gay mindset. It could be due to genetic factors; mixed parenting roles between mother and father; an over-bearing father/mother; you may have cultivated the drive when we are all in that phase between 7 years to 14 years when we tend towards homosexual contacts with our peers as a social adaptation; You may have had gay exposure at some time in your life; you may have had too much of male exposure during a considerable part of your life; You could have cultivated more of anima than animus and vice versa depending on the role you have identified with; and it may happen because of some social development when you may have found it easier to relate to boys than to girls. These are some of the reasons that I can think of right now. If you do not like it, don’t just resist it because that will make you want it more. Instead talk to a sexologist and understand these orientations and get some education on sex and sexuality to know what your urges are all about. Then he could propose some measures to take to cultivate your heterosexual drives instead. In the meantime, do spend time with girls and learn to enjoy their company and to respect them overall. If you indulge in the thought of your attraction towards boys it will trouble you no end. Just let it be there but cultivate healthy relationships with them and spend more time in female company. In time you will be able to appreciate your leanings towards girls more. If you wish you may go for hypnotherapy too.

I have lot of Determination Problem, I can't do anything neither study nor exercise how should I increase my determination?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First you need to make a good decision. This is a very important skill to develop early in life as you will be under a lot of pressure to make decisions all through your life. To make good decisions you must first get adequate information about the subject in question. You must also reduce your stress around emotions and stabilise yourself before venturing to make decisions. There is a prioritizing model developed by Dr, Steven Covey and that is very helpful in determining certain markers to aid in deciphering on the basis of urgency and importance. It can be accessed from his book, 'The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People' Once a decision is made and it is good, yoru determination will be pushed by the motivation that will naturally ensue. At your age there may be hormonal influences also that can confuse you. In that case, you can seek the help of a wise person to help you make these important decisions.

Dear lybrate-user, the given tilted eye looking may not be a symptom at all in case of the social phobia. But as you got 63 percentile marks in your social phobia test, we can address it as social phobia. Social phobia is fear to be in public situations, feeling anxious or nervous to speak to strangers, entering into a crowd etc. If you have all these symptoms, I suggest you to consult a psychologist for psychotherapy treatment. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Dear , if you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

How can I stop smoking as I need to stop it immediately and give me some tips how to keep motivated?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some people who are on a reactive mode and will quit only after they have got a disease or reach the worst condition in their abuse. In addiction parlance this is called ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, that is, you will cease the abuse only when you have suffered the worst affect of the substance. Sometimes that stage may be a terminal stage and there is no turning back: it has become too late. You must live by the adage that ‘Prevention is better than cure’. To quit do the following: When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

You could be under some form of stress. If you meet with a counselor and get that taken care of a lot of hair fall may diminish. Anyway, everyone one of us will lose hair to the extent of 75-100 per day, whether we like it or not. They are however also constantly replaced as you keep growing. There are however some bad habits that we do as youngsters that may increase hair fall: like combing your hair too often, pulling at your hair too strongly, shampooing everyday especially with strong and highly chemically based shampoos, improper diet, stress, not massaging your scalp (you need to gently do circular massage with your finger-tips everyday to strengthen the roots), is natural cleansers like shikkakai powder, liquids etc. Less exposure to direct sunlight, less use of hairsprays, hair gels, styling creams, and so on. You could also have a genetic factor inherited from your parents that will cause excess hair fall and baldness. You must also exercise regularly, sleep adequately, and eat well from the list below of good food for prevention: carrots, prunes, green peas, oats, shrimp, walnuts, eggs, chicken, low-fat dairy products, spinach, sweet potatoes, lentils, strawberry, oranges, papaya, blueberries, lime, kiwi fruit, mango, melon, broccoli, winter squash apricots, green and red peppers, millet, barley, wheat, cucumber, rice, bean sprouts, asparagus, black sesame seeds, garlic, cabbage, onions, turnips, lettuce, brussels sprouts, kale, seaweed, dry fruits, liver, salmon, tuna and oysters. Wow, that is indeed a good and exhaustive list.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. For adequate control of hypothyroidism tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 mili units/l. So please check the levels and inform. Only workout is not going to help, there has to be a properly planned diet, that provides calories based on your ideal body weight and workouts. Should avoid high fatty foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Workout has to be intense, preferably under guidance. Taks for the question.
