Hi. Mam,
please tell how to control my hair fall.
Give me a solution plsssssssssss.
Start taking protein rich diet. Your hair is made up of 98% Protiens. Green peas Foods in the legume family are good sources of vegetarian protein, and peas are no exception: One cup contains 7.9 grams—about the same as a cup of milk. (For the record, women should get about 46 grams of protein per day, and men need about 56 .) Two cups of kidney beans, for example, contain about 26 grams Chickpeas They contain 7.3 grams of protein in just half a cup, and are also high in fiber and low in calories. Two cups of raw spinach, for example, contain 2.1 grams of protein, and one cup of chopped broccoli contains 8.1 grams. In addition to it. Take aloevra amla. Juice daily empty stomach and use ayurvedic oils ans shampoos that are chemical free.

Hello panderm contains steroid and it s not advisable to use it without doctor's advice. When ever we use steroid over skin, with repeated application, it makes skin thin. Thin skin reflects light n appear fair n bright. Also it make superficial blood capillaries to appear which gv flushing appearance. Whitening effect of steroid application s temporary. Continuous usage will bring more unwanted side effects like thin skin, pimples, stretch marks etc. You can read this topic in detail, it s called as" topical steroid damaged face" on internet. I will advice you to stop panderm usage as early as possible. And start using sunscreen regularly n apply non comedogenic moisturiser twice a day.

Gynaecomastia can not be corrected with exercise you require liposuction along with resection of the gland so meet a plastic surgeon.

Healthy Diet: While trying to gain weight, the focus should be more on eating healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. Healthy food includes meat, poultry, unsaturated plant fats, low-fat milk, healthy starch content, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Cashews, almonds, dates, walnuts, dry grapes, apricots, peaches are some of the dried fruits and nuts that can be added to breakfast, salads, cereal and desserts. Sesame seeds, ground nuts, and peanuts also contain fats in them and can help in adding that extra pounds you desire. Sometimes loss of appetite may also cause weight loss. Research suggests that umami flavour inrceases satiety and enhances appetite.

She can do the followings: 1) Take a pc. of ice in a cloth and lightly press on the affected spot for 2/3 minutes. Repeat this three times daily. 2) Add 5/6 drops of Tea Tree oil on a table spoon of Aloe vera gel, mix it and apply on the pimples. Keep that for 20 minutes and then wash it with plain water. Do it twice daily. 3) Cover the pimples with little white toothpaste for about 30 minutes. Do it twice daily.

You can wash the hair with a paste made from Neem leaves. This is particularly effective for hair loss caused due excessive build up of scalp oil or invasive skin infections. For restoring the alkaline balance of the scalp and preventing hair fall, you can follow this with washing the hair with apple cider vinegar. Other homemade pastes that can be very useful include a mixture prepared from adding honey and olive oil to some cinnamon (dalchini) powder.

It's Ok. Don't worry, a different tone of skin on hands and back could be by birth but you can always try to improve the tone with the help of daily care. Scrub your hands and back daily and apply vitamin E oil.

Hi ! I am having excessive hairfall due to no apparent reason and the volume of my hair had decreased to 1/4th during the past year. I don't have thyroid or any deficiencies. Just vitamin D deficient. Please help.

Hello Dear,According to Ayurveda, hair is a byproduct of bone formation. The factors responsible for building bones are also responsible for the hair re-growth. Ayurveda doctors believe that early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution (doshas). Excess pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can make the person start losing hair. We loose hair after a certain growth and new hair replaces the older one, which means recycling of hair. Hair loss means losing more hair than you naturally lose. As our hair grows under a natural process, so we can take care of growth only by natural resources and methods. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

My dear Lybrate user, shampoo is the main cause for hairloss. It makes scalp dry and cells get less oxygen and so they can't absorbe nutrients like phosphorus, calcium etc and hair falls. Please use herbal hair wash instead of shampoo.

Hi, My wife breasts are small and I keep asking her to check on how to increase the size. Could you please let me know how to increase my wife breast size without any surgery.

MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Usually pregnancy causes an increase in size of the breasts due to hormonal changes. Other option is to consult an endocrinologist who could be of some help. Definitive methods are either fat transfer or breast implants.

Hair Transplant - Why Should You Opt for FUE Technique?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Delhi
Hair Transplant - Why Should You Opt for FUE Technique?

Hair transplant is a surgical procedure that is used to move hair follicles from one location in the body to another. The part from which the hair follicles are taken is known as the “donor site” and the location where it is moved to is called the “recipient site”. Patients who undergo hair transplants often come across the terms FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction).

 

Follicular Unit Extraction is a procedure which involves the singular extraction of each hair follicle without any removal of strip of tissue. Random removal of hair follicle takes place which causes minimal and unnoticeable changes in the donor area. Fewer amounts of hair are transplanted as the follicles are removed one at a time which makes it beneficial for the removal of lesser hair as compared to the traditional FUT procedure.

The Procedure

In FUE, singular removal of hair follicles is done using specialized equipment that generally consists of a needle which has a diameter less than one mm. The needle is targeted at the base of the hair follicles. At this spot, a circular incision is made. Another instrument, similar to tweezers, is used to dislodge the hair follicle from the scalp.

Post- Surgery Management:

Stretches are not needed in Follicular Unit Extraction. Additionally, there is almost no post procedural discomfort. Since the occurrence of any scar is absent, healing time is generally less. However, puncture marks which have a diameter of 1 mm or less are common. These marks heal by themselves within 3 to 7 days. It takes three to six months for the hair to look natural once again. The initial scars heal quickly and daily activities can be resumed the very next day.

Advantages:

Perspective of the surgeon:

  1. Lesser manpower, when compared to FUT, is needed i.e. a single doctor with a maximum of two assistants can run a clinic.

  2. Lesser equipment is needed.

  3. Graft preparation is minimal.

Perspective of the Patient:

  1. Can sport short hair.

  2. Less post-operative recovery time.

  3. Microscopic scars in the donor site are nearly invisible.

  4. Body hair can be used for added density only in this technique.

  5. Can be used to cover pre-existing scar of surgery.

Dear, Shampoos and oils do not make much change because, they hardly penetrate layers of skin, where roots (live part of hair) are present. “PROTIEN RICH DIET” Veg: Dhal, soya beans, mushrooms, sprouts etc…. Non Veg: Egg whites, Fish, Chicken (non fried items) Dry fruits – (Almonds 5-6 (badam), Dates (3-4), Walnuts (1-2), Raisins (kishmish)) majority of dry fruits are good for health & hair especially. Fresh Fruits - Green grapes with seeds (please crush seeds along with grapes while consuming) and Skin of Green Apple. Vegetables - Green Leafy Vegetables.

Hi, Lack of sleep and excessive stress are the causes for dark circles. Take adequate rest and perform yoga to relieve mental stress. Apply cucumber paste around the eyes every day for 10-15 mins, for 10- 15 days.

Measures To Reduce Hair Loss Diet rich in vitamins, minerals esp fruits & green leafy vegetables should be included in maximum regular exercise, yoga avoid hair dyes avoid washing hair frequently avoid vigorous scalp massage/brushing identifying causes related to stress Homoeopathic Aspect of hairfall- Homoeopathy has a lot to offer in hairfall but it requires some time Identifying the causes like maintaining cause or precipitating cause would prove to be beneficial Constitutional medicine approach as well as anti–miasmatic cause is required for better results Following medicines are useful in treating alopecia Lycopodium Graphites Thuja Phosphoric–acid Selenium Mancinella Fluoric–acid Can notharis Phosphorus China Sepia Caution–avoid self medication as detailed history is required in each & every case?
