Usually, baldness is associated with aging. However, there are a lot of other factors that can contribute to premature baldness like stress, weight loss, type of food, etc. Hair loss is a huge issue in both women and men, and, often times, losing hair leads to low self-esteem and loss of confidence.
For this purpose, there are numerous store-bought products for treatment of hair loss, as well as hair transplantation- a rather expensive procedure. However, the problem is that not everyone who's struggling with baldness is able to afford it.
Luckily, there are more alternative measures when it comes to hair loss. Namely, the recipe that you're about to see below is a very beneficial remedy for hair loss:
2 tbsp of castor oil
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp of organic raw honey
Mix all of the ingredients well until you get a homogenous mixture.
Massage the content into your hair and then cover it with a shower cap. Leave it for 3 hours. Afterwards, rinse your hair as usually. Repeat this procedure twice per week for 2 months until you notice improvement.
Body hair are typically seen as a manly attribution. For this reason, both men and women are constantly trying to keep their body hair free. Common ways of removing body hair includes shaving, waxing and the use of Depilatories. However, none of these techniques can permanently remove hair and hence need to be repeated regularly. The only way to permanently remove body hair is through laser hair removal therapy.
Laser hair removal can be used to address and remove hair on almost any part of the body including the face, arms, legs and bikini line. This procedure involves focusing intense light on the hair follicle pigments known as melanin without affecting the surrounding skin. The melanin absorbs this light energy and converts it to heat energy which in turn stops the stem cells in the hair roots from regenerating. This weakens the hair follicles to the point of falling off.
Hair removal is considered permanent when the hair follicles do not grow back. After the first session, new hair growth is often lighter and less dense than before. On an average, complete hair removal may require 5 to 6 laser sessions. Since laser therapy can be used to address only those follicles that are in the growing stage, these sessions are usually spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During this time the hair follicles that were in the resting phase can grow out. The number of sessions required also depends on the quality and number of hair follicles, individual’s hormone levels, and metabolism. In some cases where hair growth is very dense, maintenance treatment may be required once in six months or annually.
The procedure is relatively pain free. During the treatment, the patient may experience a faint prick or sensation of warmth. When treating sensitive areas, topical anesthesia may also be used. However, this is rarely needed. This form of laser therapy can take anywhere between 5 to 45 minutes for a single session depending on the amount of area being addressed.
Laser hair removal is considered a safe procedure and has minimal side effects. In some cases, it may cause a temporary change in the color of the skin of the treated area, but this usually resolves itself without medication. This can be prevented by using a good sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and avoiding exposure to sunlight. In rare cases, people with a dark complexion may develop blisters and experience swelling and redness of the skin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic physician.
