Avoid eating too much oil or fried food. You can avoid excessive dairy products. Drink sufficient water and keep your face dry by not applying any creams or lotions. Do not touch the acne.

Please take a dose of acid phos 1 m single dose and revert after 2 weeks. Lifestyle changes 1. Along with a healthy hair diet it is important that you exercise properly as it will ensure that there is proper blood flow to your scalp and will help in the growth of hair. 2. Treat your hair delicately. Avoid unnecessary brushing, combing or handling. Use a soft, round bristles brush. 3. Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles. 4. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier. 5. Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair.

How to use mx lotion for growing facial hair? Will you please give correct specifications of that?
Hello. Mx lotion is meant for growing hair on the scalp and not not for facial hair! consult a dermatologist for right guidance or else try this: gently move the razor on these areas. Medication: start immediately with homoeopathic medication - sulphur 200/ one dose daily in the morning for a week and 10 drops of arnica montana q in 1/2 cup of water and apply on the face on the beard and the mustache area with a cotton swab. Then use the razor. Repeat the above process every 3rd day for few months. Also take a multivitamin follihair/ 1 tablet daily for 3 months.

I am 30 years old married lady. I am loosing lots of hair everyday. I have thyroid problem.
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 hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Would Seeing A Dermatologist Help Me With My Hair Fall?

MD(Am)
General Physician, Secunderabad
Would Seeing A Dermatologist Help Me With My Hair Fall?

Would seeing a dermatologist help me with my hair fall?

Throughout our life, almost all of us have had days when we would see a bigger bunch of our hair sitting on the drainage of the bathroom than in our ponytails. Or when it would be difficult to make out the color of the comb for it had more hair strands than on the scalp.

However, despite all this, what are the immediate rescue options that you turn to? of all, the most common have been found to be, waiting for it to settle as it was seasonal, experimenting with various products on your own or using natural remedies to fix the same. And I am sure, most of you resorted to these, instead of tracing the causes of your hair fall to the lack of nourishment and proper growth environment, and visiting the right doctor to seek advice on the same.

Do I need to see a specialist or can I do without it?

Sadly, surveys conducted in the past are vocal of the fact that most of us consider self-treatment for problems such as hair fall/ loss. Unless we are severely troubled by the problem, we do not see a specialist to treat the problem. What are the popular reasons behind not seeing a specialist? one, because we often self-examine the problem and devise ways to treat it. Two, we remain uninformed of which doctor to consult—a dermatologist, trichologist, a general physician, or any other specialist. Usually, it is advisable to visit a dermatologist or trichologist as he would be able to provide you with the best solutions for your hair fall.

Hair fall, just like any other problem, depends on the cause, and takes its own course of time to get treated. The reasons for a severe hair fall are not easy to decipher. You can begin by asking yourself the following questions.

Am I eating healthy?

As we have stated this in our series of articles, make sure you eat all the major food components (proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates and fats) in the adequate amount. Do not miss to add seeds and nuts such as walnuts, almonds, chia seeds, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins and other nutrients.

If you are a salad lover, make sure you pick the best greens and fruits. Fresh greens such as broccoli, peas, spinach, cabbage and fruits such as apples, bananas, kiwi and oranges serve as the best source of the vitamins and minerals needed by the body. A well hydrated body would support healthy hair and skin both. Therefore, make sure you drink at least 7-8 glasses of water throughout the day.

You may choose to design a diet for yourself that has the adequate amount of all the essential food components or you may choose to request your nutritionists to help you do so. However, in case due to certain dietary restrictions you are unable to channelize the right amount of nutrients to your body, do not restrict yourself from grabbing nutritional supplements for yourself. Some of the nutritional supplements serve as the perfect reservoir of amino acids (both essential as well as non-essential), vitamins and minerals that act as cofactors for hair growth.

Am I providing proper growth environment to my hair?

  • “I eat healthy, and still I lose hair everyday”. What do you do if you feel this? well, you can try a few adjuvant therapies such as topical supplements (hair serums/lotions) too. With several such products in the market, you may have the freedom to pick tailored products for your hair. Usually the hair growth serums increase the microcirculation, adds vitality and strengthens the hair strands.

  • And if I am still losing hair, which specialist can help me the best? 

  • A healthy mane not only adds beauty to one self but also reflects a healthy body and lifestyle. To uproot the cause of hair fall, a thorough analysis (physical and in the laboratory) is a must, and for that one needs to visit a specialist.

  • If you were to recall the time when you last saw a dermatologist or trichologist for your hair problems, you probably wouldn’t be able to. It is not a good thing because you know what you are missing on but still put it on it.

How to prevent hairfall? Which daily shampoo is actually useful? What food strengthens the roots of hair?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
How to prevent hairfall? Which daily shampoo is actually useful? What food strengthens the roots of hair?
Hi. It's normal to loose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, Vitamin B12, iron, zinc and Omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin) , different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

Plz help me im losing my hairs so much bcoz of financial problem I couldn't consult the doctor. Im still studying.
Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like *physical or emotional stress, inadequate protein intake, genetics, anemia, aging, hormonal changes, prolonged illness, deficiency of vitamin b6 and folic acid, thyroid diseases. *hair fall can also result when one indulges in too much dying, blow drying or use of hot curlers. *dandruff can also be great cause behind hair fall. Follow the tips *make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. *eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. *eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. *add more vitamin rich food to your diet. *avoid stress and anger. *cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. *take a sound sleep. *avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight. *avoid hot hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. *it is best not to comb the hair while it is wet as this leads to greater chances of hair breakage.

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear, Dark circles or black circles under the eyes are rarely caused by temporary circumstances and are more difficult to treat than bags under the eyes. They are often the result of some combination of the following: lack of sleep, chronic stress, menstrual disorders, pregnancy, poor diet and medications. For others, dark circles are a hereditary trait. People who suffer from allergies and sensitivities often have a bigger problem with dark circles as well. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

I have itchy scalp and dandruff problem. Pls suggest effective home remedies to cure problem of dandruff.
Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week. Apply bhringraj oil on your scalp then give hot water fomentation.
