Hair care requires three basic things. Stopping of hair fall. Increasing hair growth and taking proper nutritions. Using random propducts like shampoos and oils actually does not help. Instead if you take proper treatment you can get excellent resultsin half the time and half the cost. You can consult me online for proper treatment. Once you consult we will discuss in details and suggest whole treatment and diet chart.

If we are using indulekha oil, then we can use another oil in the head or not. Indulekha oil, if we have to apply it 3 days a week, then we can put another oil in it or not?

Dear lybrate-user, indulekha hair oil contains bringhraj, svetakutaja, amla and virgin coconut oil as its ingredients. It grows hair, prevents hair fall, strengthens hair roots, avoids premature greying of hairs, prevents dandruff, prevents scalp skin diseases, repairs daily wear and tear of the hair. It is good for the overall health of hair. My recommendation is not to use any other oil unless until specifically indicated.

Hairfall is not due to one single cause. There are many conditions which can cause extreme hair loss and thinning of hair on the scalp. So first and foremost we have to find the cause of hair fall with the help of detailed history and examination. Some of the common causes maybe nutritional deficiency, hormonal causes like androgenic alopecia also called pattern baldness, hypothyroidism, telogeun effluvium etc. Unless we find and c, read the cause there is no point in giving non specific treatment. Also one should refrain from home remedies as it does not give any relief from hairfall. Oil and shampoos do not have any effect on hair growth as they are not absorbed in the skin. Please contact me using online consultation for proper examination diagnosis and treatment.

Do you have dandruff problem also. Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo. 1. Vitamin for hair loss.(a, b and c) 2. Enrich diet with protein. 3. Do warm coconut oil massage. Take coconut oil and heat it up so that it is warm, but not too hot. Massage your scalp with this hot oil for a few minutes. 4. Avoid brushing wet hair. 5. Keep yourself hydrated. 6. Put on a shower cap for an hour then shampoo your hair. It helps to stop hair loss and promote hair growth. 7. Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hairline. 8. Ditch hair tools that use high heat. 9.

Hair Analysis - Why Should You Go For It?

Hair Analysis - Why Should You Go For It?

A hair analysis or hair mineral analysis is carried to analyse the diseases and health symptoms as these are they are responsible for nutritional deficiencies, mineral imbalances and chemical toxicity.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) tests are done as hair is one of the places where the body eliminates minerals and heavy metals. The levels and pattern of various minerals deposited in the hair can reveal a lot of information about your body chemistry and health.

Scientific basis for HTMA
When new hair cells form in the hair follicle, they absorb traces of substance going through the bloodstream of the person. Each hair has a life of about 5-6 years the after which it falls off the scalp, thus keeping a long lasting record all that passes through the body of an individual.

How is hair analysis carried out?
The hair closest to the scalp, like from the region around the nape of the neck is taken (a spoonful quantity) as it is the area where most recent growth is expected.
Hair analysis cannot show very recent changes in the body of a person, it can show changes that have occurred three months earlier or older than that.

Reasons why you should go for hair analysis:

  1. It can measure the levels of a host of minerals like calcium, magnesium, copper, sodiumpotassiumironzincphosphorus, manganese, etc. The amount of these and the ratio in which they are present helps understand and pre-empt certain diseases like Syndrome X and certain types of cancer.
  2. It guides about the mineral deficiencies so that we can take the appropriate mineral supplement.
  3. It can show if certain ingredients in your personal care items like deodorants, perfumes, hair care products are being absorbed to an abnormal extent by the body.
  4. It can even help determine levels of heavy metal that are toxic like arsenic, uranium, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, lead, that are present as environmental pollutants in the soil, water, food, air of the people undergoing the hair analysis.
  5. It can measure appropriate thyroid function by measuring the appropriate ratio of calcium and potassium levels.
  6. It can measure the level of adrenal stress by measuring the ratio of sodium to magnesium.
  7. It can provide information about your energy levels by determining your metabolic type ( slow oxidizer or fast oxidizer)
  8. It can determine our body’s level of hidden inflammation. Certain mineral deficiency can lead to increase in free radicals in the body which can lead to a state of increased inflammatory markers.
  9. It can help in determining the right mineral supplement can lead to better cognitive function and emotional stability by improving nerve function.
  10. It can help determine carbohydrate tolerance and blood sugar imbalance like diabetes and insulin resistance.
  11. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
