Super Fact of the Day: Human hair is practically never destroyed
Apart from it being non-flammable, human hair is to an extent non-disintegrative as it decays at a very slow rate. Ever wondered why hair clogs up pipes? it is because hair cannot be destroyed by cold, climate change, water, or any other natural force and it is even resistant to most acids and corrosive chemicals.

Selecting A Wig For Chemotherapy!

Selecting A Wig For Chemotherapy!

If a person gets diagnosed with cancer and he/she will get started off with their chemotherapy or radiation treatment, quite typically the hair loss would begin within 10 to 14 days after having gone through the first treatment.

The ideal thing that people can do well before his or her chemotherapy treatment gets underway, is to know exactly what needs to be done for hair loss prior to their first treatment. The activities can involve:

  • Going through certain videos that are available online related to wigs and read about their reviews
  • Consider about their styles and colours that they would like to experiment with before they put in the wigs

Before we talk more about wigs, let us see what radiation and chemotherapy does to a person:

Chemotherapy and any other kind of radiation can lead to hair loss. People tend to lose hair that only lies in the area, which gets treated. Still, radiation or chemotherapy to one’s head can let people lose either some or all of their hair on the head, which could be even eyebrows and lashes.

As and when a person starts to lose their hair, the ideal suggestion is to either cut the hair very short or shave it off completely. The mental framework becomes much better and it allows them to take complete control of the situation and makes the process of hair loss much easier to handle.

Wigs for Chemotherapy Patients

Choosing a wig is not just like choosing any other fashion accessory. It is a much more important process, particularly when it is about choosing for cancer patients.

The kind of wig a patient wears tends to speak volumes and would want to make it is sending out the right message. The process through which right kind of wig gets chosen is a tricky one. It is best to get hold of a wig, which carries the resemblance with that of his or her natural colour of hair. That would make sure the transformation is not too difficult and will also help patients in being comfortable.

Ideal Size of the Wig

Most of the wigs that are available for patients having undergone chemotherapies carry the appropriate size to fit almost anyone. Still, in order to get the right size, one has to take the measurement by placing the end of his or her measuring device at the centre of their forehead, right at the hairline.

Then get hold of the measuring tape from one’s scalp right down to the back of one’s neck, which run behind their ears and back to their forehead.

The Parts Of The Human Body Bacteria Love To Live In!

The Parts Of The Human Body Bacteria Love To Live In!

While it may not strike us immediately, the human body plays host to billions and billions of bacteria all the time. Even the ones who claim to be extra clean, have these. While some are considered normal, but if not controlled, they could lead to problems like infection, odor, etc.

Read on to know 5 of the most infected areas of the human body.

  1. Mouth - No amount of brushing or rinsing can help in keeping the mouth clean. Our mouth is a host to more than 600 types of bacteria and these are required for maintaining the pH in the mouth. It is only when there is an imbalance that infection occurs along with bad breath. The tongue is another part which can allow bacteria to breed both on it and under it. The colour of the tongue is a good indication of bacterial growth. Tongue cleaning or brushing is definitely recommended.
     
  2. Belly button - Again, no amount of time you spend in the shower can help you clean the belly button completely. It has about 2000 plus varieties of bacteria and given its hidden and warm nature (compared to the rest of the body temperature), they are ideal for bacterial growth. People with piercings and obesity definitely carry more bacteria than others. Immediately after the bath, try using a cotton ear bud in your navel and see how much dirt is accumulated.
     
  3. Armpits - Those who shave their armpits are better off than those who flaunt their hair here. It has more than 80,000 bacteria and not many are even identified. It definitely requires more cleaning than the rest of the body. Shaving the armpits regularly improves the hygiene of the armpits to a large extent.
     
  4. Nasal cavity - Air enters the body for respiration through the nose, and this air carries a lot of bacteria. The fine hair in the nostrils (nose) which filter out the air of all these bacteria make the nasal cavity another dirty place. When fingering the nose or itching the nose, these get carried to the fingers and all other areas that get subsequently touched.
     
  5. Nails - Both the finger and toenails are built such that they are perfect homes for bacteria, especially the skin under the fingernails. Those who do not clean their nails regularly are highly prone to nail and/or skin infections. Added to this, there are people who walk barefoot increasing the chances of bacteria breeding. Hard to believe, but the feet are one of the most ignored body parts in terms of cleaning.

While most of us consider the genitals and the anus to be the dirtiest, which is not totally false, there are more visible parts which need more care and cleaning.

I want to asks you that how can we stop the hair growth on outer parts of human body ?
Hi, as such we can't control them fully as you are already 20yrs. Old now. But, to some extent prevent further growth of hair at this time by homoeopathic medication which may or may not help you now as it works well if taken at right time of life. Medication: schwabe's thuja 30/ thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back for further guidance.

Sir can we know why humans hair white in all ages what are the problem of man what actually is this please tell.

Sir can we know why humans hair white in all ages what are the problem of man what actually is this please tell.
There is no benchmark age for hair to turn white. Hair color is drastically affected by bodily health status, ethnic heritage, diseased conditions, hormones and stress. Hair turned grey merely due to less or no production of melanin. Each hair has a separate melanin supply in the body. Medical Conditions leading to gray hair-
1.Thyroid Disease: An underactive or overactive thyroid can affect the melanin production in the hair which can cause premature greying
2.B12 Deficiency: Deficiency of B12 has also been linked to premature greying of hair.
3. Vitiligo: Vitiligo is a disease that is caused when the pigment producing cells in your skin and hair are damaged. Once the cells in your scalp are damaged, melanin production is reduced  and hair begins to turn grey.
