Ayurvedic experts believe that approximately 50% of indian women are losing hair faster than ever. Let’s be honest, the current beauty industry has destroyed hair care. With generic formulations, diluted & poor quality herbs, ayurvedic hair oils that otherwise seem promising have failed to reach expectations. Even though natural sciences are considered beneficial, it has hardly shown any results. The truth is, hair fall is a complex problem. In fact, ayurveda believes, its the effect of an internal imbalance. Identifying and addressing this internal imbalance will: reduce hair fall & damage reduce hair maintenance effort heal dry, brittle & lifeless hair in order to understand the root cause of your current hair fall, it is important to find out which internal imbalance is causing it losing 20-100 hair daily is normal. Any more than that and you should start treatment. There can be several factors behind hair loss such as environmental effects, aging, too much stress, excessive smoking, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, scalp infections, use of wrong or chemically enriched hair products, certain medicines and medical conditions like thyroid disorder, autoimmune diseases and chronic illnesses to name a few. Do not use shampoo and apply coconut oil and only dry excess oil if any without soap or shampoo in order to have a healthy volume of hair on your head, the rate of hair loss and replacement should be in tandem. With age, your hair growth cycle shows signs of slowing down and factors like age, disease, and hormonal changes among others affect the pace at which an individual hair follicle moves through the 3 phases of the hair cycle. A disruption in your hair cycle can give rise to loss of hair that’s rapid and unexpected. Hair loss or alopecia can affect both men and women. The causes of your hair to fall at an alarming rate are the reasons behind hair loss could be many, but here are 6 major ones: 1. Lack of protein in your diet when you exclude protein from your diet, your body starts to conserve the protein that it has by altering the growth cycle of your hair. In such cases, your hair enters into the resting stage, resulting in zero hair growth. In india, 9 out of 10 people are said to suffer from low amounts of protein in their diet, with 91% vegetarians reporting protein deficiency. 2. Iron deficiency iron plays a very important role in the transportation of oxygen to the different organs of the body. Lack of iron in your diet (which is the principle reason behind anaemia) can give rise to several health problems including hair loss. Your body attempts to direct oxygen to important organs so as to support their functioning. As a result, your scalp witnesses a low supply of oxygen, which causes hair loss. 3. Vitamin d-3 deficiency deficiency of vitamin d-3 gives rise to a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium (te). This is a temporary hair thinning phenomenon that takes place when the all the hair on your scalp enter the resting phase at the same time, subsequently causing you to shed a large amount of hair later on. 4. Smoking smoking can also affect the health of your hair, especially the rate at which it falls and the number of strands lost in a day. A research carried out by the harvard school of public health has revealed that smoking can cause a rise in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (dht). An increase in dht level prevents new hair cells from growing and causes hair follicles to reduce in size with each hair cycle. As a result, the area on your scalp that gets affected by dht experiences a lack of hair growth. 5. Use of testosterone supplements in gym intake of testosterone in the form of supplements and injections to build muscle mass can trigger hair loss in men. This takes place when the testosterone in these supplements gets changed into dht, thereby affecting your hair loss rate and amount. 6. Past illnesses (dengue, tb and typhoid) falling of hair can also be brought on by illnesses such as typhoid, tb and dengue as the hair growth cycle comes to a stop. Hormonal or metabolic stress that is experienced during the course of such diseases may cause hair to fall. The treatments available to cure hair loss are many like 1. Hair transplant hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique that transfers hair follicles taken from other parts of your body to the balding area. Known by the name of follicular unit transplantation, this hair loss treatment can help to bring back the natural appearance of a fuller head of hair.

Usually, 8 sittings are required with each sitting being 2 weeks apart for better results. 3.lowlevellaser (revealed its effectiveness in encouraging hair growth in both the genders. Light) therapy (lllt) this form of hair therapy utilises light energy of a specific wavelength and threshold to stimulate cellular activity, thereby promoting hair growth.

Dear Lybrate user, diprovate plus 0.05% lotion is similar to the naturally occurring steroidal hormones (hydrocortisone/cortisone) produced by the adrenal glands. It is used to treat internal and external swelling associated with diseases like asthma, colitis, arthritis, severe skin allergies, etc. It is also used for other conditions like adrenal hormonal insufficiency, certain types of anemia, cerebral edema, etc. But the medicine also contains side-effects. It causes complications like blurred vision, indigestion, anxiety, and nervousness, etc. Mintop eva solution is a medicine used in the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is most effective in treating familial hair loss or thinning at the top of the scalp, not in front. This medicine helps to stimulate hair growth by increasing the blood circulation to the hair follicles. The side-effects of this medicine primarily include irregular heartbeat, chest pain, weight gain, eye irritation, headache, and so on. Our doctors always handle such cases by administering hair fast - hair regrowth treatment. It is a cyclical vitamin therapy program. This treatment triggers hair growth through a balanced micronutrient environment. It not only brings the roots of the hair to the growth phase but also strengthens it to the maximum to prevent excess falling of hair. We use separate gender-specific nutrients to have an appropriate combination for better results. We also have a clinic in guwahati where you can easily seek consultation from our experienced doctors once scheduling an appointment through our call center team. But if you are unable to visit, we are inviting you to enroll in our video consultation service. This shall enable you to discuss this kind of issue with one of our doctors without missing the home comfort.

Hi m 29 years old female, how to maintain for hair to growth long in 3 months upto 10 inches.
The safe and natural ways to reduce the hair fall and induce hair growth is to do yoga for hair growth this will keep your mind and body calm and relaxed as well and hence can be described as a total remedy for body and mind. Balayam is a nail rubbing exercise and it is a union of two hindi words bal and vyayam where bal means hairs and vyayam indicates exercise. In simple language ‘balayam’ means an exercise for hairs. To be more specific, balayam is an acupressure therapy in which a person rubs his/her fingernails of both hands against each other to stimulate the scalp’s activities. This stimulation if done correctly, frequently and for a longer period of time is known to boost natural hair growth and cure mpb (i.e. Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia) observed in some men and women. Method: rub four fingernails (except thumb) of both hands (as hard as possible) against each other. The surface of fingernails should rub hard against each other. Since roots of hair follicles on the scalp are connected to fingernails, this pressure creation will help in pumping required nutrition to the scalp if you rub the tip of fingernails of one hand against the surface of fingernails of another hand, then it accelerates hair growth on ears. If you rub surfaces of only both thumbnails against each other, you can notice faster growth of moustache and beard. (so women should avoid it) if you rub nail tips of one hand with the surface of other hand’s nails, hair in ears will grow. So, it is important to rub without causing friction to nail ends and avoid thumbs. Apart from this exercise, try to quit smoking and have control over alcohol consumption. Also add at least 80-100 gms of protein (soy is preferable), 30 gms of iron and enough sulphur. Drink plenty of pure water, which can help to remove toxins from your body. If you are suffering from anaemia, increase your iron intake. Do this at least for 10 minutes (increase time limit if your hair fall is more) in the morning, before breakfast and 10 minutes in the evening, before dinner. Along with this yoga, practice prithvi mudra for 40 minutes each day. People having high blood pressure should avoid balayam. It may aggravate the condition. Letting your hair get enough sunlight every day is also important. Balayam may not be effective in types of baldness like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis etc. Within 3-6 months, you will see a noticeable change in your hairline. After 12 months of regular practice with a proper diet, your lost hair should be restored.

No, soap or shampoo is not to be used. Losing 20-100 hair daily is normal. Any more than that and you should start treatment.

Most of you take supplements of vitamin on a regular basis as it aids the build-up of new hair and skin cells. Read on to find out how exactly do the various vitamins help your hair: 1.Vitamin a: this vitamin controls the production of retinoic acid in your hair follicle. It is not only helpful for skin care but stimulates hair growth. It is immensely fruitful in moisturizing your hair and keeping it healthy. Vitamin a is usually found in sweet potatoes, carrots, tuna, lettuce, mango, sweet red peppers, green leafy vegetables and spinach. 2.Vitamin b: variants of this, such as b12, aid in hair growth by managing stress. Vitamin b is found in fruits such as oranges and papayas, and beans. 3.Vitamin c: this vitamin helps you absorb iron from the food you eat which is an absolute essential for hair growth. It also boosts the synthesis of collagen that is required to repair the damage and sustain the structure of your hair. Fruits such as papayas, guavas, lemons, sweet lime, orange, kiwi, vegetables such as broccoli, yellow bell peppers and leafy vegetables are replete with vitamin c. 4.Vitamin d: this vitamin rejuvenates the hair cells in order to form new shafts of hair. Vitamin d is found in dairy products, mushrooms, soy milk, tofu, and cheese. Vitamin d is also naturally made by your body when you expose your skin to the sun and is called the sunshine vitamin. 5.Vitamin e: this aids in stimulating capillaries and enhancing blood circulation on the scalp. This additionally contributes to hair growth due to its high anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant content. Certain foods loaded with vitamin e are pumpkin, broccoli, olive oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, avocado, tofu and spinach. 6.Vitamin b5: it is also known as panthenol, is a vital ingredient that is used in medicines to regulate hair fall. Foods enriched with vitamin b5 are sweet potatoes, sunflower seeds, avocados, cheese and mushrooms.

If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can ask the safe and natural ways to reduce the hair fall and induce hair growth is to do yoga for hair growth this will keep your mind and body calm and relaxed as well and hence can be described as a total remedy for body and mind. Balayam is a nail rubbing exercise and it is a union of two hindi words bal and vyayam where bal means hairs and vyayam indicates exercise. In simple language ‘balayam’ means an exercise for hairs. To be more specific, balayam is an acupressure therapy in which a person rubs his/her fingernails of both hands against each other to stimulate the scalp’s activities. This stimulation if done correctly, frequently and for a longer period of time is known to boost natural hair growth and cure mpb (i.e. Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia) observed in some men and women. Method: rub four fingernails (except thumb) of both hands (as hard as possible) against each other. The surface of fingernails should rub hard against each other. Since roots of hair follicles on the scalp are connected to fingernails, this pressure creation will help in pumping required nutrition to the scalp if you rub the tip of fingernails of one hand against the surface of fingernails of another hand, then it accelerates hair growth on ears. If you rub surfaces of only both thumbnails against each other, you can notice faster growth of moustache and beard. (so women should avoid it) if you rub nail tips of one hand with the surface of other hand’s nails, hair in ears will grow. So, it is important to rub without causing friction to nail ends and avoid thumbs. Apart from this exercise, try to quit smoking and have control over alcohol consumption. Also add at least 80-100 gms of protein (soy is preferable), 30 gms of iron and enough sulphur. Drink plenty of pure water, which can help to remove toxins from your body. If you are suffering from anaemia, increase your iron intake. Do this at least for 10 minutes (increase time limit if your hair fall is more) in the morning, before breakfast and 10 minutes in the evening, before dinner. Along with this yoga, practice prithvi mudra for 40 minutes each day. People having high blood pressure should avoid balayam. It may aggravate the condition. Letting your hair get enough sunlight every day is also important. Balayam may not be effective in types of baldness like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis etc. Within 3-6 months, you will see a noticeable change in your hairline. After 12 months of regular practice with a proper diet, your lost hair should be restored.
