5 WAYS TO GROW HAIR HEALTHIER

  1. Know what is normal and don’t panic unnecessarily.

Medically hair grows only by 10 to 12 cm per year. In case, you are havingthis much growth, be happy. Nothing to worries guy!

40 to 50 strands of hair falling per day is absolutely normal. Hair fall beyond this range should make one seek medical attention.

  • 2. Apply hair oil once a week. It’s extremely important.

Whichoil? Mustard or flax seed oil are great options. They both contain omega 3and omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin A, D, E, K.

When to apply? Apply just an hour before head massage. Follow it up with 5 minutes massage if possible.

Don’t leave overnight or entire day. Only the oil which seeps into hair roots help. Oil left on scalp for long duration promotes dandruff.

Caution:Make sure to buy cold processed oil. i.e. It has been processed by crushing the seeds and no heat or chemical was used to extract the oil. Later two processes spoil the basis properties of oil, leaving it less impactful.

Flax Seed Oil 
  • 3. Wash hair at least 3 to 4 times a week. The amount of pollution present in air, double of it gets deposited in scalp. Wash it off before it does the damage. 3 to 4 times in a weak, is a must. One washing everyday is also fine.

Which shampoo is best: Sulphate free shampoos are best: Anaphase plus Shampoo, Triclenz shampoo are good options.

  • 4. Dietplays an extremely important part in hair growth.

Ideally 40 to 50 percent of diet should be raw then only enough vitamins and minerals get into your system. Food processing, kills the nutrition in food.  So have daily dose of fruit, sprouts, salads, curd in your diet.

Also have amla, and seeds mixture every day.Seeds mixture containing pumpkin seeds, water melon seeds, f lax seeds etc. iseasily available in market. Chew one teaspoon in morning. Its filled withvitamin and minerals.

Have raw food : amla, dates, seeds, almonds etc. on daily basis.

  • 6. Saloonhair procedures like rebonding, straightening, coluring for sure damagesthe hair . Every day women visit my clinic complaining how their hair lost allvolume and shine post these saloon procedures.

Hair spas suggested at saloons is not the answer to saloon damaged hair. First you damaged your hair with chemicals. Next you want to repair them with chemicals. Is it possible? Don’t get into this trap of chemicals.

HAIR FALL : CAUSES AND TREATMENT

Scalp has approximately 100,000 hair. Fall of upto 50 to 70hair per day is normal. Old hair keeps falling only to be replaced by new hair.Hair fall beyond 100 strands per day should propel one to seek medicalattention.

There could be various causes for hair fall. Finding thecause is the first step towards treatment.

  1. Nutritional deficiency: Lack of essential nutrients like iron, biotin, protein, vitamin D3 etc. in diet. People often claim to be very cautious and putting in every effort to eat healthy, but till the time one has these things in one’s kitchen – cooker, fridge and oven, one claim to be having nutritious diet falls flat since 87% of the nutrition is killed in food cooked in cooker. Similarly microwaves are strong enough to kill the nutrition in diet. Now did you realize why, almost everybody is having hair fall, dark circles, early whitening of hair, fatigue etc.

Chloroflorocarbons are supposed to be very dangerous for one’s health. These harmful gases are continuously emitted in the fridge. We keep food under these harmful gases and then consume them. Worst, after doing this day in and out we claim to be eating healthy.

SOLUTION: Add raw uncooked food to diet-sprouts, amla (Indian Gooseberry), almonds, dates, milk, soya, curd, lassi, gud(darker the gud better it is, whiter the gud bad it is) etc.

Take biotin supplements for three months after dermatologist prescription.

Get serum ferritin levels checked. In casethey turn out to be less than 40ng/dl, one is deficient in iron. Rememberdespite hemoglobin levels being normal one can have hair fall secondary to irondeficiency. Hemoglobin is the measure of iron in blood circulation, ferritin isthe amount of iron stores in body. If they are less, iron deficiency inducedhair fall would occur.

HAVE seeds, amla, dates, almonds etc every day .
  • Hormonal imbalance: Various hormonal imbalances can lead to hair fall.

Both, excess or less thyroid levels leads to hair fall. Get TSH, T3 AND T4 levels checked.

Polycystic ovarian disease: Excess of various hormones – Prolactin, FH, LSH, free testosterone, Insulin etc. leads to conglomeration of hair fall, obesity, acne, and irregular periods.

SOLUTION: A thorough checkup of all hormones and hormonal treatment balances the situation.

  • Androgenic Alopecia:It occurs due to hormone named testosterone. Here the amount of hormone is normal but the hair strands are sensitized to the hormone.Sensitized hair first gets thinned out and finally dies permanently. However it follows different pattern in male and females.

Male: Males start losing hair at the boththe frontal corners. Slowly the hair line recedes backwards.

Male : androgenic alopecia

Female: there is overall thinning of hairand widening of central partition. However there is no balding in women ever.Cheer up ladies!

Female pattern hair loss

SOLUTION:  Minoxidil 5% solution applied over scalp every night on dermatologist prescription would help further regression of hair.

  •  Chemical and heat damage: Advent of new era of hair treatments like rebonding, colouring, straightening comes with sure shot way to damaged hair.

SOLUTION: If you are fond of these treatments, get them only at the lower part of hair and never ever at the hair roots near scalp. Thus, one can prevent damage up to a great extent.

  • Stress: Stress releases various bunch of hormones which are bad for hair and skin.

SOLUTION: Resolve to take ten minutes off for pranayama (deep breathing exercises and meditation, travel to offbeat destinations, make time for your hobbies, write down your worries : it’s a great way to let all the bad emotions out which may be stifling inside making you uneasy.)

  • Recent illness: Any serious episode of illness, typhoid, malaria, surgery, hepatitis etc. will lead to severe hair fall three months after the illness. And not during or immediately after the illness.
  • Post pregnancy:A women gets amazing hair throughout pregnancy because of surge in estrogen hormone. Immediately post-delivery, she suffers from severe hair fall that’s because of sudden withdrawal of hormones. This hairfall lasts for 6 to 18 months. Nothing to panic, it all get normal in due course of time.
  • Crash dieting: Fad for size zero compels many to opt for crash dieting .It severely affects  there nutritional supply leading to hair fall.

WHITE HAIR : CAUSES AND TREATMENT

Hair turning white before forties is a growing concern amongst youth. Continuous formation of oxygen free radicals in body due to stress, nutritional deficiency, heat and chemical exposure etc. is the prime reason. Oxygen free radicals exhaust the black color producing cells in hair giving rise to white hair. Thus, treatment should aim at reducing free radical formation and their continual flushing out from body.

WHITE HAIR

Resorting to various detoxification remedies on regular basis would help flushing them out. Details of various detoxification methods to be done at home are mentioned in our detoxification blog. To reduce their formation following things need to be followed:


1. Stress: Excess work and less energy to accomplish the same give rise to stress. A great deal of energy is lost by over thinking mind. Meditation is the best way to give some rest to mind and restore the lost energy. Pranayam like anulomvilom and kapaalbhati are other deep breathing exercises done regularly help control anxiety a long way.


2. Nutritional deficiency: Especially because of eating too much junk, packed food, bassi/stale food and consuming food kept in fridge or cooked in microwave and cooker.

Try to eat fresh and not bassi food cooked over three hours. Check our food blogs on our website for amazing ways to transform your food habits the healthy way without compromising on taste.

Try to add as much raw food as possible to your diet, vegetable soups, fruit, fruit juices, sprouts etc.

 
3. Chemical damage by shampoos and saloon treatments like hair colour, rebonding, straightening etc.

Switch to chemical free indigo leaves based hair dyes. Use SLS free shampoos.

4. Heat damage: Use of blow dryer and sun exposure, exposes hair to excessive heat.

To cut down the heat exposure by a blow dryer use the one with attached comb and restrict its use to 15 seconds every day. Using the one with attached comb gives you the advantage of blow drying the entire mane in 15 seconds thus reducing the heat exposure greatly. Cover hair with scarf when out in sun.

5. Another common observation is, people with sinusitis having white hair with greater frequency.

Do pranayam (deep breathing excercises ) regularly to cure sinusitis. Once it’s cured the occurrence of white hair would be halted.

TREATMENT

 
Allopathy doesn’t have an effective cure.

Ayurvedic remedy 
1. Take 50 gms of coconut oil, take 5 pieces of amla and heat the oil till amla turns black. Cool oil and store it in a bottle. Apply three times a week overnight before washing it next day.

2. Take 4 table spoon of Amla powder. Add water and lemon juice. Mix till a paste like consistency is formed. Apply for 20 minutes on hair and scalp before head wash. Wash it with plain water avoiding shampoo. Do it twice a week.

3. Eat lots of amla or amla juice every day.
