Hello Lybrate-user, Vitamin e applying externally does not help much. It is better to take it orally. It has other benefits also like skin health. Instead take multi vitamin tablet.

You can use nizral shampoo for the lice elimination and try these for hair 1.Cutting back on gels, blow-drying, and brushing hair when wet 2.Lowering your stress by exercising at least 30 minutes a day 3.Drinking enough water, 6-8 glasses a day being mindful of the foods and drinks you consume, the products you use, and the way you manage stress, can all help improve the well-being of your hair. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask you can do yoga for hair growth 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.

Not all men find it easy to grow a beard/moustache. The rate of growth of facial hair mainly depends on your genetics. You can’t change the genetic makeup but certain things can be done to speed up the growth rate to the maximum potential. Coconut oil massage is one of the ways in which you can increase the growth of facial hair. Combine coconut oil with rosemary oil (10 parts coconut oil with 1 part rosemary oil). Apply the mixture to the face with the help of a cotton ball. Rinse with cool water after about 15 minutes. Do these thrice a week for best results. Amla (the indian gooseberry) can stimulate the growth of facial hair. You can use it alone or combine it with mustard leaves. Massage amla oil onto your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes before rinsing it using cold water. Grind a few mustard leaves into a paste and mix it with a few drops of amla oil and use it in the same way. Or you can try this. Mix one teaspoonful of ground cinnamon bark with two teaspoonfuls of lemon juice. Apply the mixture over the face and then rinse with cold water after 20 minutes. Use this remedy about twice a week for good results. Combine eucalyptus oil with any carrier oil (olive oil or sesame oil). Mix the two and massage it onto the facial skin. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing with cold water. When skin is moisturized, there is a better environment for facial hair to grow quickly. Moreover, there shouldn’t be oil, dirt and dead skin that hampers your hair follicles to breakthrough. Your facial hair grows much faster when your face is consistently kept clean and moisturised. The two crucial nutrients key to promote healthy, fast hair growth (including facial hair growth) are proteins and saturated fat. Incorporate healthy sources of protein (such as beans and fish) and saturated fat (eggs and animal fat) to promote facial hair growth. Exercising regularly improves blood circulation which is the key to stimulating hair growth. Physical activity aid nutrients reach the hair follicles in your face. Take out 20 minutes for exercise every day as it can make a big difference. You need the balance of vitamins a, c, and e in order to promote facial hair growth. This help maintains your follicles and sebum and improves circulation to create a better environment for the beard to grow.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user, a loss of about 50-80 strands per day is normal and anything in excess above 100/day is a cause of concern. Hair fall can be an external manifestation of many underlying diseases like, anemia, thyroid, pcos, hormonal imbalance and nutritional/iron deficiency. Without identifying the root cause and addressing it, the problem is not going to be solved. Shampoos and oils can only help for texture of your hair, and the gentle massage you do while applyin it to the scalp helps improve circulation to scalp, but the root cause remains. So the focus needs to be to treat the cause for a long lasting solution.

I don't think anything applied externally will have any good effects. It is useless without internal medicine.

Hi Ms Nibedita, most of the hair colors have ammonia in it which is one of the reasons for Hair loss. Hence is suggest you to switch on to either henna or an ammonia free hair color of any reputed brand. As far as roughnes is concerned, use a good hair conditioner atleast 1-2 times a week after shampoo and have lot of protein and iron rich diet like milk, eggs, meat, beans, green vegetables, dryfruits, raisins, dates and jaggery.
