You should not apply oil if you are sweating as that will clog the pores and you will sweat more and become prone to infection.

Dear , lybrate-user Tips to get long and healthy hair . Coconut hair oil only makes the hair free from frizzy. But it not helps in growing the hair. This hair oil is just as the conditioner for the hair. Almond oil is really beneficial to the hair. Apply the oils at night time makes your hair smooth and shiny to the next morning. Other oils like castor oil and mustard oil are also enhancing the hair and keep your hair scalp smooth. Tea oil is the best applicant for the hair. It makes the hair glow and shiny. Mixture of lemon , curd, tea extracts are widely used for the hair masks and conditioners. Apple cider vinegar helps for the bouncy hair. Apply the vinegar mix with hot water on the hair makes your hair bouncy. Bottle gourd juices is good for the hair .Apply the bottle gourd juice on the hair and wash after 3o minutes gives the best results. Olive oil is best for the split ends. Apply the olive oil at the split ends of the hair. Amla powder, castor oil and egg mix all of them and make as smooth paste. Apply if before going to hair bath. Avoid the hot water baths. Hot water makes your hair dry and brittle. For the hair fall take the henna, lemon juice and egg white mix all these. Apply this paste on the hair and hair scalp. Wash after 20 minutes. Do not comb the wet hair, it will fetch the hair from the roots. Take the proper diet in the food. Make your hair clean. Take hair bath 2-3 times in a week is good for the healthy hair. Stay hydrated in the day time. Avoid the hair exposure towards the sun, pollution. Main Reason of hair loss - 1: Stress: Fast-paced and hectic lifestyles can sap a lot of energy out of us and increase our stress levels. Numerous studies hold stress responsible for many health problems ranging from smaller ones like a headache to life-threatening ailments like a heart attack. True, a good percentage of people who shed a bit of extra hair are susceptible to a lot of stress, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that stress is the only factor responsible for baldness. 2: Family history: As far as family history is concerned, there’s pretty much nothing you can do. You can only reduce your chances of losing a lot of hair by following a proper diet and lifestyle, and avoiding things that could contribute to accelerating hair loss. 3: Hair styling tools: Blow drying your hair after a shower may seem to be an easy and no-fuss method, but numerous studies suggest that blow drying your hair on a daily basis could contribute to a lot of hair fall. Other styling treatments like straightening and curling if done frequently, contribute to a few extra strands on your hairbrush. 4: Hormonal changes: Fluctuations in the levels of hormones, especially those during pregnancy and childbirth may also contribute to extensive hair loss. Thyroid imbalances, menopause and other hormone related conditions can also be held responsible for hair fall. 5: Frequent use of chemical products: Shampoos, conditioners and even hair oils today are loaded with chemicals that mess up with your hair in more ways than one. Most cosmetic products that we buy today contain harmful chemicals that contribute to weakening of the hair shaft, making your more prone to split ends, hair loss and other hair related issues. 6: Junk food: Junk food is criticized and held responsible for almost all health conditions, and it’s mostly because junk food hardly gives your body any nutrients. Living on junk food could lead to nutritional deficiencies, which may contribute to baldness. People having eating disorders are also more likely to suffer from extensive hair loss. 7: Harsh weather conditions: The air conditioner in your office and home may seem comfortable and cozy, but it may not be the same for your hair. Being fragile and susceptible to damage, hair responds most severely to any atmospheric changes. In such cases, a good way to prevent hair fall is to condition your hair as often as possible. 8: Gender: Though hair loss and baldness is observed in both the sexes, women tend to lose hair uniformly – all around the scalp, whereas men tend to lose hair in a distinctive pattern (the receding hairline). Auto-immune conditions, which most commonly occur in men, are also thought to be responsible for baldness. 9: Sleep deprivation: Sleep deprivation shows under your eyes as well as on your head. Insomnia, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders can influence the health of your hair, and over time, it may also cause baldness. 10: Medications and treatments: A severe life-changing incident like an accident builds up a lot of mental pain and trauma. To add to this, the treatments and medications that follow it only worsen the health of your hair. Overuse of certain drugs and heavy dosages (like that in chemotherapy) are linked to excessive hair loss and baldness. So now that you’ve figured out what may be causing your hair loss, it’s time to browse through what you can do about it.
