Straight Hair - How Ayurveda Can Help Achieve It?

Straight Hair - How Ayurveda Can Help Achieve It?

Giving a style to one’s hair very often, along with going for the option of getting hair permanently straightened, could well turn out to have a detrimental effect on your hair’s health. On the other hand, the natural modes of treatment in Ayurveda might take a little longer than usual, but will provide you the desired look without any side-effects.

Some of the natural modes of treatment include:

1. Mixture of Coconut Oil and Lemon Juice: One of the most effective natural ways through which people can get their hair straightened is through application of a paste, with one- fourth cup of Coconut Milk and 1 table spoon of Lemon Juice. Keep the mixture for one whole night inside the refrigerator to get the exact preparation for usage. Then, next morning, the mixture should be applied to the hair, right from the roots to the tips. Women must leave it that way for half an hour, which should be followed by washing it off with cool water and applying mild shampoo, which is free from sulphate. This application of mixture works well because lemon juice helps in getting the hair straightened. Then its combination with coconut milk provides conditioning for the hair, thereby giving the scalp a boost of Vitamin C.

2. Treatment with Hot Oil: Another method of treatment in Ayurveda, which leads to straight hair, is by application of hot oil. For this, one requires 1 table spoon of Castor Oil along with a table spoon of Coconut Oil. The preparation time is hardly a couple of minutes. First one should combine the oil and heat it up for a few seconds till it becomes slightly warm. Then apply the oil to the scalp and hair. As and when the hair gets completely saturated with oil, massage your scalp for close to 15 minutes. After this, leave the oil on the hair for half an hour longer, and then wash the hair with cold water and a mild shampoo, which is free from sulphate. The treatment is perfect as castor oil helps to condition and repair the hair like no other ingredient.

9 Skin and Hair Care Tips for a Glowing Navratri

Its Navratri …  

Time to flaunt the colourful ghaghras and cholis, your dandiya and garba skills,  picture-perfect looks, glowing skin and gorgeous hair, every night as you dance away with your friends to the lilting rhythm of the dhol… 

Let us make this Navratri extra special with a few handy tips for flawless beauty and charm. From face scrubs and packs for glowing skin to hair masks and quick fixes for skin issues…  take a look at 

The Ultimate Ritual to keep your Skin Glowing throughout Navratri...

1. Prep Your Skin

A few minutes of preparation before you put your makeup on goes a long way in keeping your skin super radiant throughout the nine days of fun and frolic.

Tone your skin : 

Toning is an important part of the cleansing process. A good toning regimen will remove any remaining bits of oil, dirt and debris left behind by washing or cleansing. 

More importantly, toning helps soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.

DIY Home Remedies Skin Toning : 

Pour some rose water in a bowl. Place cotton wool pads in it and let it soak in the rose water. Keep the bowl in the fridge.After 15 minutes, remove the bowl and start with wiping your face with the soaked cotton pad. On the cheeks, wipe with outward and upward movements in such a way that each stroke ends at the temples. Lastly, pat the skin with the cotton wool pads and wipe it gently with a soft napkin. 

Scrub your skin 

Dead skin cells, sweat, dirt, and oil can accumulate and build up on the surface of your skin, day after day. These leave your complexion a little dull and even flaky. Exfoliating with a face scrub can remove this build-up, leaving you with skin that feels clean, smooth and glowing. 

DIY Homemade Peel scrub 

Mix powdered almonds with yoghurt. Add dried and powdered mint and basil leaves. Apply the mixture on the face and leave it on for a 15 minutes. Rub gently, with small circular movements. Wash off with water. 

Homemade scrubs can work wonders on the skin by removing the dead skin cells and making the skin brighter. 

Mask is Must : 

Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They're also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Masks can deliver higher concentrations of active ingredients to plump, hydrate, and balance the skin. A face mask completes the skin prep regimen leaving your skin smooth and soft. 

Refreshing Rose water pack

In a bowl, mix 1 teaspoon rose water and 1 teaspoon milk powder. Mix into a paste and apply on the face. Wash off after 20 minutes. For oily skin, replace milk powder with Fullers earth (multani mitti) for the same paste. After applying the face mask, take two of the cotton wool pads soaked in rose water and use them as eye pads.  

Skin Conditioning Fruit pack : 

Mix grated apples with ripe papaya pulp and mashed banana. Add a little yoghurt or lemon juice. Apply it all over your face and neck and leave it on for half an hour. Wash it off.  

2. Enticing Eyes : If you love to enjoy garba every night, then you need to look out for eye bags or puffy eyes.

So the best and natural way to do it is by getting enough sleep. Get 8 hours of sleep every single night 

DIY Homemade Cucumber Mint Eye Mask

Blend a cucumber with 4-5 mint leaves. Add a small amount of water to thin the  juice. Dip 10-15 cotton pads in the juice and gently squeeze them to get rid of excess juice with your palm. Place the cotton pads flat and separated in a clear bag and freeze them until they are iced. At the end of the day, just take two cotton pads out of the bag and place them over your eyes for around 20-25 minutes. 

Cucumber is high in water content and vitamin K, which plays a huge role in refreshing and bringing your tired eyes back to a healthy state. Cucumber is also very effective in reducing the appearance of dark circles, hydrating and soothing the skin around your eyes. Mint has a cooling effect and soothes and removes the under eye bags making your eyes more youthful and lively. By soaking the cotton pads in the cucumber juice and refrigerating them, you can maximize the benefits and have your masks ready whenever you need them. 

3. Make up :

Always go for waterproof makeup. 

Navratri falls in the hot humid month of October. The dancing makes you excessively sweaty. 

Waterproof makeup will keep your eyeliner, lipstick and foundation in place. 

Apply a light foundation. Don't go all out with your foundation because when you sweat, the foundation will start to look cakey. 

Do remember to remove the makeup however tired you are.

Use these skin-friendly makeup removers to keep your face blemish free. 

Soak a cotton ball in milk with a few drops of almond oil to remove your make-up. 

Wipe away your eye make-up or bold lip colour with cotton ball soaked in baby oil. 

4. Flaunt your Back 

Navratri is the perfect time to wear those backless cholis and blouses. 

But before you do that it is better to get your back waxed and polished. 

DIY Rejuvenating Turmeric Back  Scrub : Mix 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoon turmeric powder and 1 1/2 cup of coconut oil to make a coarse paste. Apply this paste and gently massage the mixture, in circular motions, on your skin. Wash the mixture off with luke warm water. 

This works as quick fix for your dull back skin, making it clear, smooth and shining.

5. Prep Your Hair : 

You would love to flaunt Your  Luscious Long Hair at Garba and Dandiya Nights. 

For dull hair, have a quick conditioning treatment before your shampoo. 

Conditioning Hair mask

Mix one teaspoon of vinegar and almond oil. Massage into the hair. Do the hot towel wrap. Wash hair after half an hour. Hair will look smooth, bouncy and shiny. 

To soften rough, bushy or frizzy hair, mix some water with a creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the hair. Then comb the hair, so that it spreads through the hair.

6. Hands and Feet Care 

Give yourself a manicure and pedicure well before Navratri begins. If you don’t have time for one, rub your hands and legs with a mixture of sugar and lemon juice. 

7. Hydrate : 

Continuous and vigorous dancing tends to dehydrate you and your skin. Hydrating your body with ample water is the first trick to a glowing skin during dandiya. Have everything from water, fresh juices, lime water and coconut water as well. This will hydrate your body and give your skin a glow from within. Increase your fluid intake at least by a litre. A helpful tip is to carry lime juice concentrate with sugar, black salt and black pepper powder added. All you have to do is to add water to the concentrate, take a break and sip it slowly … and you will feel as energetic as ever.

8. Relive your feet

Dancing your heart out can cause your feet to revolt. 

And you have 9 whole days to dance your heart out. 

A simple remedy can help to soothe your aching feet and you are back again with your dancing shoes on ...

The Invigorating Foot Bath 

You will require 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup Epson salt, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 5 or 6 drops of lavender (alternatively basil or rosemary) essential oil.

Fill a tub big enough to hold both your feet comfortably and fill it with hot water. Add all the ingredients and relax. Add marbles into your foot bath and roll your feet over them for a massage. 

9. Skin Allergies 

Jewellery, costumes and sweating can cause irritation and sometimes red rashes, itchiness, pricking on skin or boils. 

Remember to remove the jewellery before sleeping. Wipe them with a soft cloth to remove the sweat and grime on them (It maintains the jewellery and reduces the chances of allergies)

Remove makeup gently with baby oil. Apply ice compresses on the affected area. Application of little baby oil or virgin coconut oil will soothe the skin.

See a Dermatologist immediately if rashes persist or increase or if there are angry boils.

Hope you find this article useful and informative. Do feel free to like it and share it with your near and dear ones.

Laser Hair Removal - What All Should You Know?

Laser Hair Removal - What All Should You Know?

Laser hair removal refers to a process in which a special laser light is shone upon hair follicles. Pigments in the hair follicles soak up the light and this stops the hair from growing. There are several advantages as well and risks associated with laser hair removal treatment. Here is everything you need to know about laser hair removal.

Advantages

  1. Precision: One of the biggest advantages of laser hair removal is the fact that you can pick and choose and remove only the hairs which you want to remove, which is not the case with waxing.
  2. Speed: Laser hair removal is relatively quick as an area, roughly equal to the size of one coin can be treated within a second. Therefore, small areas which need to be treated can be treated in under a minute while the whole back can have all the hair on it treated in about an hour.
  3. Reliability: Laser hair removal is very predictable and reliable due to the fact that hair will permanently be gone if this treatment is opted for.

What not to do?
Laser hair removal like any other treatment requires trained professionals as well as some precautions. Here are some precautions you should take before laser hair removal treatment.

  1. Limit plucking, electrolysis and waxing: All of these treatments remove the root of the hair. This is not good as the laser hair removal treatment is meant to be performed on the root of the hair. These should not be done for six weeks before treatment.
  2. Avoid sun exposure: Exposure to the sun creates complications and should be avoided for up to six weeks before treatment and also six weeks after treatment.

Risks
There are also several risks of laser hair removal which are pretty common and about which you should be aware of. These include.

  1. Blisters and sunburns: Even though blisters are rare, sunburns are pretty common. You can wear makeup on your face to cover up the side burns unless it has blisters.
  2. Changes in the color of the skin: Sunscreen can be worn to treat this problem.

Effective Basti Treatment For Improving Hair loss!

Effective Basti Treatment For Improving Hair loss!

Losing of hair at an alarming rate can be a very intimidating sight, especially if you are young. Although it is okay to experience gradual hair loss with age, but a sudden burst of it can hamper your self-confidence and image. Today, due to high levels of pollution and stress, hair loss has become a growing concern among the majority.

Ayurveda states that hair is a by-product of the bone tissue formation (Asthi). Any disruption in the tissue metabolism can severely affect the quality of the hair. It is also dependant on the digestive fire of the body. It is based on the philosophy that people suffer from diseases due to imbalance of energy in the body. When the organic processes in the body are restored to its original state, this energy itself can be channeled to fight diseases effectively. Ayurveda terms consistent hair loss as ‘khapitya’ and it categorized under ‘shirorga’.

Causes-
Romakupagata/Keshamulagata, also called bhrajaka pitta dislodges the hair from its roots. Sleshma/Kapha along with rakta obstructs the hair roots, which in turn does not allow new other hair to grow.

Other causes include-

  1. Accumulation of excess toxins in the body leads to ‘pitta dosha’, which obstructs the flow of blood, and other nourishing nutrients to the roots of the hair, resulting in a dry scalp, dry hair, thinning of hair and split ends.
  2. Iron deficiency in the body does not allow healthy bone growth and deteriorates the quality of hair.

Basti Treatment for hair loss-
Ayurveda first determines the body type or prakriti of every individual, after which hair fall treatment is decided and advocated. Ayurveda is a holistic approach, which diagnoses the core issue of hair fall, eliminates impurities from the body and provides natural remedies to stimulate growth of hair.

Basti is a traditional ayurvedic medicated ‘enema’ treatment where herbal oils and decoctions are inserted through the rectum to improve vata disorders. Vata, present in colon, is the main force behind the elimination of feces, bile, urine and other excreta. However, the bone tissues (asti dhatu) is also another predominant site for colon. The mucus membrane of the colon is the outer covering of the bones (peritoneum) and gives it nourishment. Therefore, basti treatment is effective in curing vata disorders.

Medications
There are eight types of herbal oils applied under the basti treatment. However, the following helps in improving hair loss-

  1. Anuvasana or oil enema is used to cure excess drying of the scalp.
  2. Niruha- Asthapana or the decoction enema used to clear the vata

Ayurvedic Treatment For Hair Fall!

What can be more attractive than having a head full of silky, black, long and luscious hair? But the lifestyle issues coupled with pollution have led to the loss of hair among both men and women. Too much stress, lack of nutritional food, ageing and genetic factors along with hormonal imbalances have also contributed to an uncontrollable hair fall. Most people who are affected by hair loss often tend to opt for chemically enriched products that make the situation even worse. Thankfully, Ayurveda offers top notch solutions to these problems, and you can easily get rid of hair fall problems with the ingredients that are almost found in all households.

Go for a hair oil massage
The foremost step that would help you combat the issues of hair fall is massaging your head with the right hair oil. The proper technique of scalp and hair massage would improve the flow of blood to the hair follicles and condition the dry scalp, which is required for strengthening the roots of your hair. You will feel much relaxed and there will be a reduction in stress and slowly these factors would promote the growth of hair.

Have Indian gooseberry to help you
When you are willing to have faster growth of hair, you can get some Indian gooseberry, which is commonly called by the name of Amla. This citrus fruit is rich in Vitamin C, a deficiency of which can lead to breakage and loss of hair. The Indian gooseberry has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, and it is also believed to have exfoliating properties that are essential for the maintenance of a healthy scalp as well as promoting the growth of new hair follicles.

Get yourself a handful of fenugreek seeds
Also known by the name of Methi in Indian households, fenugreek is a common ingredient found almost in all kitchens. It is rich in hormone antecedents, which are known for their ability to boost hair growth along with aiding to rebuild the hair follicles. Fenugreek seeds are also rich in nicotinic acid and proteins that can cause stimulation in the hair roots and induce growth of hair.

When you have an easy access to the items that are always available then what is the point of using artificial products with an overflow of harmful chemicals and compounds that cause damage to your hair in place of repairing it? So, it is recommended to seek the aid of Ayurveda and have a Rapunzel-like hair.

How Does Nasyam Treatment Control Premature Graying Of Hair?

Spotting the very first strand of grey hair in your 20s can be an intimidating sight. We usually expect our hair to turn grey by the time we are 30s or 40s, but having grey hair in your early age shows that you are a victim of premature graying. Although one or two strands of grey hair is not unusual, too much greying can cause you to panic.

Ayurveda and grey hair-
According to Ayurveda, any dosha imbalance in the body or disequilibrium in the mind-body constitution causes premature hair graying. Losing of hair is called khalitya and premature graying of hair is called palitya. They are pure paitik disorders or ones arising from our pitta dosha imbalances.

The pitta aggravation in the body is usually caused by-

  1. Oily and spicy food
  2. Acidity
  3. Over exposure and intolerance to heat
  4. Excess sweating

Nasyam or Nyasa is a Panchakarma treatment, an Ayurvedic variant of detoxification therapy, which applies herbal oils, juices and powders through the nostrils. Medicated oils / powders / juices stimulate the important points of the brain to cure specific diseases. The nose is considered to be the gateway to the human brain, this procedure is used to cure several ailments related to the head. It effectively treats diseases related to migranes, sinuses, throat, nose, ear and all organs above the neck.

Nasyam treatment and greying of hair
Nasyam treatment can be categorised into five forms-

  1. Pradhamana Nasya
  2. Brumhana Nasya
  3. Shamana Nasya
  4. Navana Nasya
  5. Marshya Nasya

Navana is a part of nyasa treatment meant for shodhana or snehana. It is widely used to treat excess hair fall. Nasyam is a proven ayurvedic treatment meant to improve hair texture and strength.

Procedure

  1. Poorvakarma or pre purificatory measures: It Includes facial oil massaging or application of steam to the face, forehead, head, ears and neck. This helps to loosen and eliminate the Doshas.
  2. Pradhanakarma or main procedure of Nasya: This is the main step of Nasya and includes application of luke warm medication through the nostrils, alternately, with the help of a dropper. The sole, shoulder, neck, ear and palm are gently massaged along with the administration of this drug.
  3. Paschatkarma or post therapeutic measures: The patients clean their mouth by gargling with lukewarm water and then medicated smoke is given to them to inhale.

How does the treatment work?
The oils used for Nasya therapy are shadbindu, neem, or yashtimadhu. The medicines applied through the nostrils pervade into the venous system (Blood circulation) and nervous system (Brain) present in and around the nostrils, which then relives the blockage of the channels. This has a large impact on graying of hair and works to control it. It also makes the hair quality better.

Nasya treatment does not cause any serious side effect, although it is recommended only after heavy meals or Shirodhara. Hence, to control hair graying, the nasyam treatment has been a proven Ayurvedic treatment with effective and healthy results that is being availed by more and more people.

Hair Removal - Why Go For Laser Option?

Human beings are considered as the most evolved species on this planet. Though it is said that our ancestors were monkeys, very few of the habits are common between the both. In the process of evolution, civilization has always been a priority. One thing which is similar (though reduced a lot) between humans and monkeys is the hair growth over the body.

Excessive, unwanted hairs on the body (especially face) is a usual problem being faced by everyone. In this fast, competitive world, it brings a social barrier to our identity. This can affect one’s future to a varying extent. Nobody likes to compromise with the future.

There are only two ways to get rid of them:

  1. Temporary methods like Waxing, Threading, Shaving, plucking are associated with pain, thick regrowth of hairs, infections (due to poor hygiene) and life long repetition of the procedure. This costs a lot of precious money and time. These procedures are usually undertaken by Beauty Parlors.
  2. Permanent methods like Laser Hair Reduction. Laser targets the melanin pigment in the hair root, thereby destroying it completely. US FDA approved Lumenis Light Sheer Diode Laser is the best in the world. The doctor uses lumenis diode light sheer laser - only laser which is US FDA approved.

Once the client is ready for the procedure, the area is cleaned and marked; the hairs to be treated are shaved. Ice pack can be used for sensitive skin. The probe is placed firmly on the skin and fired. Pricking sensation on the skin may be felt in few cases. Whole body procedure may take a couple of hours. Routine activities can be resumed once the procedure is finished. The next session may take place after a time period of 1 month to 5 years (depending on the sittings already completed).

This is considered the best treatment modality in the approach towards unwanted hairs. The total number of sessions required are few. The procedure is completely safe, effective and hygienic.
