  ESSENTIALS FOR FALLING HAIR - by Editor





Does your hair fall often Arm yourself with these tools to combat hair fall.

Wide-toothed comb

  • Get yourself a wide-toothed comb. This is probably one of the most important yet underutilized of all hair tools. A wide-toothed comb helps you distribute conditioner evenly all over your hair while shampooing and conditioning. In addition, it also helps get rid of knots smoothly.

  • The best time to get rid of knots is during conditioning. Apply conditioner and run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair.

  • While untangling dry hair, do so in sections. Take one section at a time, and first, untangle the ends of your hair. Do so slowly, and don't pull unless you want your hair to fall out in clumps or break.

  • Don't wait for the last minute before detangling your hair. Every night, while sitting in front of the television, run a wide toothed comb gently through your hair, until you have untangled it completely. Do this every night, and you will notice that your hair remains free from tangles.

Leave-in conditioner
Dry hair tends to tangle easily, and, needless to say, causes it to break. Make sure your hair is never devoid of moisture by always keeping a bottle of leave-in conditioner handy. The next time you feel your hair is dry and rough to the touch, simply rub a dollop of leave-in conditioner between your palms, and apply it to your hair. Comb through with your wide toothed comb. Your hair will be instantly rejuvenated and moisturized. Gradually, the texture will also improve. This is a must if you blow dry your hair regularly, or if it is chemically treated. Such hair constantly craves moisture, so get yourself a bottle of leave-in conditioner.

Oil

Olive, almond and coconut oils are all excellent for the hair. While you could apply oil as an alternative to leave-in conditioner, oil tends to make your hair sticky, and you cannot style your hair well after applying oil. Your only alternative would then be to tie up your hair. For better results with oil, apply just a few drops immediately after washing your hair, when your hair is still dripping wet. Oil doesn't penetrate the strands as easily as leave-in conditioner does though. Nothing beats a hot oil massage followed by a steam treatment, as the steam helps the oil penetrate the hair strands, strengthening them and curtailing hair fall.

Egg

Egg is great for the hair - there are no two ways about it! True, it causes a tremendous stink in the bathroom, and your hair may let off an 'eggy' smell, but the results are instantaneous and worth it! Egg strengthens your hair almost immediately, and the egg yolk leaves your hair shining. Whip an egg with two tablespoons of olive oil and apply it to your hair. Wash off after half an hour. Make sure you wash off with cold water though, or the egg will start cooking in your hair, and would be harder to take off! Use a scented shampoo to counter the smell of egg in your hair, and follow up with a leave-in conditioner. Do this for a month, and you will be amazed by the change in your hair texture and the reduction in hair fall.

Comments:   Parveen, heat up some oil and apply it to your scalp. Make sure it is not too hot. Ask someone, or yourself massage your scalp with your fingers and then dip a towel in boiling water. Remove the towel, squeeze the water out of it, and wrap it around your hair. These days u can also buy steamers in the market. they are like small flasks. you fill them with water and plug them in and they give out steam. you can then just move it all around your head to direct the steam on your hair. the oil gets so nicely absorbed by the hair.

Comments:   If your hair is thinning, as in leaving slightly balding, one has to question whether the cause is hereditary or chemically induced. A lot of Indian/MiddleEastern/African fairness creams contain mercury salts. Mercury is notorious for causing loss of hair after long term use.

Because Straight cut makes Density, V cut makes long, Oval makes normal level General Advice:- Maintain long hair.

Comments:   hi ash..start taking biotin 1000mcg vitamin daily plus multivitamin once a day..start rubbing your fingernails together for like 5-10 minutes daily ..this is accupressure and it improves the blood circulation in head..for massage take coconut oil and heat it for like couple of minutes with kari patta in it..make sure those curry leaves turn black while heating..cool it down and apply it on your scalp night before washing your hair..it gives oxygen to your hair and scalp and they kinda starts breathing and stops hair fall..you dont have to make this mixture everytime..you can just make it and put it in a jar at room temp...ok ash well hope it works for u sweety..good luck.
