Hair Problems & Treatment
Hair Loss

Loss of hair at a very tender age has become a common disorder these days. Hair loss can be because of number of problems but the main cause according to scientists is a progressive condition known as androgenetic alopecia or common hereditary hair loss. In androgenetic alopecia, combination of heredity, hormones and age causes progressive shrinking or miniaturization of certain hair follicles which result in no hair growth at all after certain period of time.
Usually we lose about 100 hair per day, after a few months, a new hair grows out of the same follicle. But, because of this condition hair growth becomes absolutely nil resulting in baldness. Other causes of hair loss are stress, skin disorders or serious disease, childbirth, shock, excessive drug intake, wrong eating habits, subjecting your hair to chemical treatments etc. Wrong eating habits and inadequate nutrition in your diet also causes loss of hair.

Treatment

Hair Problems & TreatmentIn order to have beautiful and thick hair growth you need to have adequate essential nutrients in the daily diet. Hair is made of protein and therefore adequate protein is necessary for healthy hair. Your diet should be rich with proteins and minerals. You require a daily intake of 100 grams of protein, which you can take either through protein supplements, or by milk, buttermilk, yogurt, soybean, eggs, cheese, meat and fish. A lack of vitamin A, vitamin B, B6, B12, folic acid, biotin, iron, copper and iodine may cause hair loss and premature graying.

Lack of inositol is also a cause for loss of hair. Inositol is available in foods such as yeast, liver and molasses. Thus, if your diet is rich in iodine, protein, vitamin, iron and inositol, then you can have long lustrous locks. Eat lots of green vegetable and fruits supplemented with foods such as milk, vegetable oils, honey, wheat germ, yeast, eggs and liver.

Remedies

  • These are a few helpful tips to help regenerate hair follicles, but they do not cure any underlying conditions, or stress-related hair loss.


  • Take dietary supplements such as Vitamin B6, protein & Silica. Supplements are useful when you can`t get enough from natural food sources.


  • Get enough sleep and have a balanced and healthy diet.


  • Regularly massage your scalp after a hair wash. It will activate the sebaceous glands and there will be effective circulation of blood in the affected area, making the hair grow healthy.


  • Apply coconut milk all over the scalp and massaging it into the hair. It will nourish the hair and promote hair growth. The coconut milk can be prepared by grinding the coconut malai and squeezing the residue.


  • Application of the juice of green coriander leaves on the head is also considered beneficial for hair growth.


  • Massage your scalp with Amla oil, prepared by boiling dry pieces of amla in coconut oil. Rinse your hair with a mix of apple cider vinegar and sage tea this helps hair grow.


  • Try drinking blend bananas with honey, yoghurt & low-fat milk.


  • Dandruff ProblemsDandruff

    The term "dandruff", has become an embarrassing condition characterized by itchy or flaky scalp. Millions of people across the globe are affected dandruff, itchy or flaky scalp. Although no one really knows for sure what causes the flakes and itches of dandruff researchers suggest they may be an inflammatory reaction triggered by too much of the microscopic yeast-like organism normally found in small amounts on healthy scalps.

    By definition, common dandruff is an overproduction and build-up of dead skin cells. Your scalp, like the rest of your body, is covered with skin cells. As the skin renews itself, the top layer of old cells die and come off. Normally, the entire renewal process takes about two to three weeks. But for some, this process gets speeded up. The scalp increases its production of cells, causing the dead ones to pack together and build up on the scalp resulting in an itchy and red scalp. Then the dead skin sloughs off as white or grey flakes on your collars and shoulders.

    Dandruff is caused due to food allergies; allergies to hair care products; a combination of cold weather, low humidity and dry indoor heat; infrequent shampooing; and that standby root of most health problems -- stress. However dandruff cannot be associated with dry skin. Dandruff can actually cause due to overproduction in the scalp`s oil glands and people with oilier scalp are more likely to have this disorder.

    Treatment

  • Message your scalp with essential oils like rosemary, cedar, lemon and eucalyptus to reduce flaking and itchiness of the scalp. `Methi` seeds are also helpful in fighting dandruff. Soak them overnight, grind the next morning, mix in the juice of need leaves and apply on the scalp.


  • The first and probably most simple step in treating dandruff is frequent and effective shampooing of the hair and scalp. This washes away flakes before they can build up and helps soothe itchy scalp. Mix 8-tbsp. peanut oil with the juice of half a lemon. Rub the mixture into your hair, leave on for 10 minutes and then wash as usual.


  • Eat a well balanced diet and make at least 50 percent of your diet raw food.


  • Avoid or decrease your intake of fried foods, dairy products, sugar, chocolate and nuts.


  • Split Ends

    Trichoptilosis is a longitudinal splitting of hair fiber better known as "split ends". It develops after the protective cuticle has been stripped away from the end of hair fibers as a result of over processing. Any chemical or physical trauma that weathers the hair may eventually lead to split ends. Vigorous brushing can even induce it. Typically the damaged hair fiber splits into two or three strands and the split may be two or three centimeters in length. However the greater the damage to the hair fiber the more severe the split ends may be.

    Treatment

  • You cannot mend split ends; the only way to get rid of them is to trim your hair occasionally, tiny trims every four weeks, and following with deep-conditioning treatments in order to keep strands supple and flexible. Use good conditioners and don`t blow dry your hair on high heat. This type of a maintenance routine should ensure that splits don`t crop up at all.


  • Don`t brush hair when it`s wet, because that`s when it is at its most vulnerable.


  • Buy a natural-bristle brush that won`t pull on hair and ultimately break it off, thereby causing a possible split end.


  • Wear a hat to minimize sun damage.


  • Condition after shampooing, and use a deep conditioner once a month.
