There is no single cause of dry hair. Rather, a variety of factors can lead to dry hair, including environmental conditions, hair care habits, and your physical health. Environmental conditions that may cause dry hair include: living in a dry, hot climate spending a lot of time in the sun frequently swimming in chlorinated water Certain hair-care practices also contribute to dry hair. These include washing your hair too often, using harsh shampoos and conditioners, getting frequent chemical treatments, blow-drying your hair daily, and using electric curling irons or straighteners. In some cases, dry hair is the result of a health problem that makes it difficult for your hair to retain moisture. The following health conditions can dry out your hair. Dry and thin hair may be due to hormonal imbalance. So first get a thyroid profile test done. Several at-home techniques can help improve your dry hair. Heat and sun exposure are common causes of dry hair. If you live in a dry, humidity-free climate, always protect your hair before going outdoors. Wear a hat and avoid long-term exposure to dry or windy air. You can also protect your hair by wearing a cap when swimming in the pool or ocean, since salt water and chlorine can easily damage your hair. If you suspect that your grooming habits are causing your dry hair, a few tips can help undo the damage and restore your hair’s moisture and luster. You should: avoid daily shampooing use a protein-enriched conditioner to repair hair damage blow-dry your hair less frequently avoid heated styling products, such as flat irons, curling irons, and electric rollers condition your hair every time you wash it use a shampoo and conditioner that are meant for your hair type; there are hair products specifically formulated for chemically treated hair Daily shampooing can rob your hair of its protective oils and cause dryness. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, your scalp makes less oil as you age, so you do not need to wash your hair as frequently. Chemical hair treatments and dyeing can also dry out your hair, making less frequent washing a better choice. Try washing your hair once or twice a week to retain more moisture. You can also apply hair oils or leave-in conditioners to add luster and softness. If a medical problem is causing your dry hair, your hair may improve once you treat the underlying condition. You can take homoeopathic medicine for that.

I am losing lot of hair and It's now visible to others what to do.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am losing lot of hair and It's now visible to others what to do.
Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hair growth and repair.

Low level of Testosterone cause very slow growth of beard and moustaches. For fast growth of moustaches and beard apply these very useful methods: • Do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA yogasana daily. You can ask me for the details & steps of these asanas. • Take 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha powder and 1/2 teaspoon of amla powder mix it and take it with water once in a day. • Do running and jogging daily as it increase the hormones levels. • Do neck massage with oil daily.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have itching problem under my lower body so please help me.
if possible send exact location of itch or pics. If you have fungal infection/itching, then home remedies or self treatment wont work to cure it, for fungal itch I will prescribe a schedule of anti fungal medication for your specific problem which have to be strictly followed or the fungii may develop resistance and come back later once cured. Hence never self treat fungal itches with any self prescribed medicines or it may lead to resistance and lifelong problem. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear user, First of all understand that no external application of products can give your permanent results. It is the quality of food + Exercises + Your genetics that determine your skin and hair health. I would advise you to start exercising daily + Yoga and have plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Follow a normal skincare regimen - CTM. Use AHA glow face wash, then use sunscreen and then moisturise your skin.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
Dear, keloids are formed due to defective healing of body injury. I can suggest you some better tips to get relief from keloids: * boil 100 gm of dry or fresh neem leaves in 500 ml of water and wash keloids with this water daily. * take 2 teaspoon of turmeric (haldi) and 2 tea spoon of mehndi, mix some water in it and make paste. Apply this paste on keloids and wash it after 45 minutes. Repeat it atleast for 20-25 days. * you can take mahamanjishtarishth but only under the guidance of an ayurveda expert.

Hey lybrate-user, as you have mentioned that you are having dry skin. Please inform is there any specific season when you feel your skin is more dry. Dry skin can be an early sign of pre psoriasis and should be managed properly. To start with coconut oil is best remedy for dry skin to be applied after taking bath. It is safe for long term use. We at kayakalp global are having special herbal treatment which is very effective for dry skin conditions and psoriasis.

How to know my skin is of which type? whether it is dry /oily/sensitive/etc.? please help me out?

How to know my skin is of which type? whether it is dry /oily/sensitive/etc.? please help me out?
We can categorize skin according to whether it is oily, dry, normal, or a combination of these conditions. Knowing this will help you determine what types of products to use on your skin to make it healthier------------------ 1. You may have dry skin in some places if it is red, wrinkly, dull, and rough. If you have dry skin, you will probably not be able to see your pores in that area. It may even look scaly or itch------------- 2. You may have oily skin if it looks shiny, has large visible pores, and is prone to breaking out in blackheads and pimples. ---------- 3. Combination skin.-- this is very common. Many people have skin that is oily in some places, like the nose, and dry in others. Areas that are often prone to drying include the backs of the hands, elbows, and limbs. If this is the case, you may need to tailor your skin care routine to the skin in each area----------------- 4. Younger people are more likely to have normal skin. You likely have normal skin if:------------ (a) you rarely get pimples or blackheads.---------- (b) your pores are not enlarged or easily noticeable------------. (c) your skin does not have dry, flaky, itchy, red patches.--------- (d) your skin looks healthy, has an even color, and is elastic.----------------------- take care of your skin regardless of what skin type you have. These tips will help you maintain healthy, vibrant skin. They should work for all skin types and all ages.---------------------------- (a) wash away oils, dead skin, and dirt daily with a gentle cleanser. This will protect your skin from getting clogged pores and forming pimples. It will also remove irritants that you might have come in contact with during the day.------------------------- (b) don't wear your makeup to bed. This increases the likelihood that it will get rubbed into your pores as you sleep, causing them to clog and form pimples.------------- (c) combat wrinkles by using a moisturizer each day that contains sunscreen in it. This will protect your skin from sun damage.---------- (d) don't smoke. Smoking will make your skin look older, more wrinkled and less healthy. If you already smoke, quitting will improve your skin quality.-------------------
