Ways To Prevent Monsoon Hair Fall

Let the melody of monsoon play on your mind, not it’s menace on your hair. This high-on-humidity weather is the main reason behind hair fall. Hair’s chemical structure makes it unusually sensitive to airborne hydrogen. In this weather, your hair absorbs hydrogen, forming bonds, and swells until the smooth cuticle erupts to make them frizzy. But, you can take care of your hair by doing some simple and small everyday things.

1. Drink plenty of water

Drinking at least 8-12 glasses of water daily is another tip to prevent hair loss in monsoon. Water helps wash off the toxins from our body. These toxins along with fungal infections can aggravate hair loss problem. Drink distilled water or filtered water which is devoid of chlorine, lead etc. for healthy hair.

2.  Use Aloe Vera gel

Aloe Vera is considered to be a miracle plant when it comes to all-natural hair care remedies. It can be used to treat dandruff, split ends and hair fall problems in any season. Massaging Aloe Vera gel into the scalp restores pH balance, reduces hair bacteria, relieves scalp itching, promotes hair growth and eliminates dandruff among many other notable benefits.

3. Cut caffeine

This can actually be one of the hardest, but excessive caffeine intake leads to dehydration which is another key reason for hair loss. So, the tip is to replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk, herbal tea or any other non-caffeinated drink to get a healthy and a shiny crown.

 

4. Shampoo daily

If only we could sit at home and enjoy the serenity of the rains. We all know this is wishful thinking, but what you can do is wash and condition your hair as soon as you get home. This is the only way you can keep your hair and scalp clean. Regular shampooing won’t lead to hair loss or dry scalp, provided you use a mild shampoo

 

5. Methi Seeds 

Methi, also known as fenugreek, contains hormone antecedents which help revitalize damaged hair follicles. This makes hair strong and immune to damage.

  • In a bowl of water soak one cup of methi seeds overnight
  • Grind them into a fine paste the morning after
  • Give your hair a good application of the paste
  • Use a shower cap to cover your head
  • Once 45 minutes have lapsed, wash your hair

Yoga

YOGA : Introduction to Yoga :-

Yoga is a path towards the total harmony of body, mind, and spirit. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj. which means union. Union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. Yoga is not merely a form of exercise for the body. It is an ancient wisdom – for a healthier, happier, and more peaceful way of living – which ultimately leads to union with the Self. It is an inherent desire in humans to be happy. The ancient sages, through inquiry about life, were able to reach a state of consciousness in which the secrets of healthier, happier, and meaningful living were revealed to them.

Benefits of Yoga :-

  1. Helps in releasing toxins from the body Channelizes energy flow.
  2. Regulates the digestive, endocrine, and circulatory systems.
  3. Corrects the posture and alignment of the body.
  4. Strengthens and revitalises the internal organs, leading to a healthy and youthful body.
  5. Helps to lose weight, cure asthma, diabetes, heart problems, and many chronic diseases.

Types of Yoga :-

  • Anuloma Viloma :-

Sit with your eyes closed in the Padmasana pose and rest your hands on your knees. With your right thumb, close your right nostril and inhale as much oxygen as you can through the left nostril. Remove your thumb from the right nostril and exhale. Use your middle finger to close your left nostril while you exhale and then inhale with your right nostril and exhale. Do this with focus and concentration for about 5 minutes. “Anuloma Viloma helps in improving the working of the lungs and to cure depression and tension which is the ultimate cause of hair fall.

  • Kapalbhati  Pranayam

Sit with your spine straight, eyes closed in Padmasana. Now inhale deeply with both the nostrils and fill your lungs with air completely. Now exhale through both the nostrils forcefully such that you feel the pressure in your stomach. Repeat this for 5 minutes. It adds luster and beauty to the face, reduces stress from the eyes and helps in curing dark circles. It also combats the problem of blood circulation in the whole body and helps in hair growth.

  • Vajrasana

This is a simple and easy-to-do yoga for hair growth, that can be done by almost anyone. When you perform this asana, blood circulation in the scalp increases, and it enables the hair follicles to grow. This asana also helps relieve bloated abs. Kneel down on the floor with your spine kept straight and heels together. Put your hands on your thighs, palms facing down. Relax and take deep breaths for 1 minute and then stretch your legs forward.

  • Steps of Uttanasana : –

Uttanasana or “intense forward bending pose” is a mainstay in pretty much every style of yoga. It is used as a transition posture, a resting posture, and can even be made pretty active if you know how to engage the right muscles. This pose also has a plethora of variations, all with their own unique health benefits. Here are my top five favourite Uttanasana variations, and why you should give them a try.

  1. Take a standing position; keep your feet and shoulder distance apart and parallel to each other.
  2. Press your feet down in to the ground and ground yourself powerfully.
  3. Now breathe out and gently bend down from the hips (not the waist) and place your chest and stomach on your thighs.
  • Triangle Pose of Yoga

When it comes to keeping our scalp healthy through yoga, trikonasana is considered as one of the most important poses. It not only expedites the process of hair growth, but also makes the hair strands smoother and glossier.

As we all know, yoga works wonders on our bodies. You’ll be surprised to know that it can change your hair from drab to gorgeous in a manner that even high-end salons cannot do. In addition to that, it improves digestion and reduces anxiety, which are major factors contributing to hair degeneration.

How Yoga Helps Increase Hair Growth

  1. First and foremost, yoga stimulates the scalp by increasing blood and oxygen flow in it. This rejuvenates the hair follicles and nourishes the dry limp hair.
  2. Yoga also reduces the stress that is one of the main causes of hair fall. The thyroid gland is also regulated. This gland plays a pivotal role when it comes to hair growth
  3. Yoga is a perfect workout to inculcate that much-needed lifestyle reversal. It will not only promote healthy habits but also help you combat the not-so-trivial problems such as hair fall.

Hair Care Tips in Rain Season

Hair Care Tips in Rain Season

Avoid tying of hair

During monsoon, there is very less chance that your hair will become dry quickly after taking bath. The weather condition may not permit the same. Since the sunlight is not very well visible among the cloud, it will take time in drying your hair. Some people have a tendency of tying the wet hair. This gives rise to hair breakage. Try to keep your hair open wide so that it gets dried with a minimum amount of air in the atmosphere.

Healthy diet 

Dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, eggs, fish like mackerel and salmon, whole grains, carrots, kidney beans and the like are rich in protein. Protein helps strengthen hair follicles, which in turn keeps hair fall in rainy season at bay.

  Only the external modification with regards to the hair health is not enough. Rather, you must go for the right diet. Your hair also requires a good amount of protein, vitamins and minerals so that the hair follicles can get strengthen. For this, it will be important to have a good amount of food rich in vitamins and minerals. The food particles that you should consider are omega 3 fatty acid, mackerel, salmon, walnuts, spinach and dahi.

Avoid hair styling 

Hair styling in damp monsoon weather can damage your hair. Tying up your hair tight is not advised in monsoon as it leads to trapping of rain water in your hair and the humidity makes the hair even more frizzy and limp.

The humidity that is pervasive during the rains combined with the chemicals in hair styling products can make your hair greasy, which in turn increases the chances of hair fall because you will spend that much more time scrubbing your scalp to take it off. This may also lead to dandruff.

Try a loose bun, loose hair, loose side pony tail and protect your hair from humidity exposure. Keep your hair trimmed and short during the monsoons for easy cleaning and maintaining.

Regular oiling:

Regularly oiling your hair and keeping it overnight is known to be extremely beneficial for the hair. You can wash your hair with a mild shampoo and lukewarm water on the next day. A nice hot oil massage will not only make you feel relaxed but also take good care of your hair during the monsoons.

Benefits of Regular oiling:-

 

  • Fights pre-mature graying of hair

 

It is believed that regular usage of oil prevents pre-mature and greying of hair. Not only that, regular usage of oil also keeps your hair, strong and healthy.

 

  • It protects hair from pollution

 

Many of us aren’t aware of the fact that oiling our hair regularly also helps it against pollution. While we can wash our face every time, washing our hair at regular interval isn’t feasible. Instead oiling it regularly can be useful as a protective layer for the hair, protecting it from various environmental attacks such as dirt, dust, pollution, ultra-violet rays of the sun.

 

  • Prevents dryness of the hair

 

While regular hair spas isn’t a bad option to keep your hair free of dryness and supple, regular use of oiling will keep it nourished for longer. Also, oil acts as a coolant and it would prevent your hair from harsh heating conditions. If your hair is extremely dry, you can just apply oil to your hair and then soak a towel in hot water and wrap it around your head. This would make sure that oil penetrates well into the scalp.

  1. Smoothness hair

One of the best ways to keep your hair smooth is by oiling them daily, or at least regularly. Oiling your hair increases the blood circulation in the scalp and thus, repairing of damaged hair. This will make your hair look smoother and shinier.

Does smoking cause hair loss

Smoking is very dangerous for hair. You should be very cautious to keep yourself away from the smokers.(avoid active as well as passive smoking).Smokers may notice that the top layers of their hair are quite brittle. This causes them to break off before they are fully grown and is most likely because they are malnourished.

“Smoking  prevents the cells from carrying the right amounts of oxygen around your body organs. Ultimately, this will affect things like your hair as it is not being supplied with enough nutrients or fresh oxygen from the blood stream.”

Smoking causes hair loss in two ways:

  1. It reduces circulation to the extremities
  2. It pollutes the blood, which impacts the liver

“The 7,000 chemicals in cigarettes affect every cell in the body, including hair follicles,” Smoking has been associated with hair loss.

Cigarette smoke enters the bloodstream through the lungs and is carried by the circulatory system to every part of the body. The result is that the cells of the smoker’s body are bathed in the more than 4,000 chemicals and gasses found in cigarette smoke. No part of the body is truly exempt from the toxins in cigarettes, and even hair follicles suffer damage.

Cigarette smoke damages the hair follicles, causing them to shrink and wither. Unhealthy follicles simply cannot produce healthy hair, making smokers much more likely to have damaged and thinning hair or go bald. Even if the follicles do continue to produce hair, it is brittle and extremely susceptible to breakage. Smoke also restricts the blood flow to the follicles, prematurely aging them and causing grey hairs to appear earlier in life than they otherwise would. Cigarettes also increase the amount of the hormone DHT in the body – a hormone known to contribute to hair loss. The odour of cigarette smoke is also easily held by the hair and skin, causing even clean hair to smell like stale smoke.

Swimming pool Chlorine Effects on hair

Hair care during swimming in summer needs special attention as swimming pools use more chlorine during these days,to counteract effect of increase rush in the pools. Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in your pool. … Here are a few things you can do to prevent chlorine damage to your hair and skin. Before getting in the pool, take a quick shower and make sure your hair is wet.

Chlorine, used in swimming pools, is bleach and it does have a damaging effect on hair. Not only does it affect the texture and colour of the hair, but it can also weaken hair at the follicle. When you swim, always rinse your hair out after every swim in clean water as chlorine and salt ruin your hair.

Swimming pool Chlorine Effects on Human hairChlorine is added to water in swimming pools and spas in order to reduce the growth of microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses. The chlorine that is able to sanitize contaminants is called “free” chlorine. The level of “free” chlorine in swimming pool should be between 1 and 3 ppm (parts per million), and between 3 and 5 ppm for spas.

Chlorine (hypochlorous acid) reacts quickly with organic and non-organic materials present in swimming pool water. Because of its chemical activity, chlorine also affects hair of swimmers.

How does Chlorine affect Hair?

Chlorine affects hair by direct chemical reactions resulting in chemical changes to hair components, by changing physical properties of the hair, as well as by changing electrical charge of minerals bonded to hair and reacting with those minerals.

The direct chemical changes include reactions of chlorine with pigments giving hair their colour, oils covering hair and proteins forming hair shafts. The reaction of melanin pigments with chlorine results in change of hair from natural colour (blond to black) to straw colour of keratin.

Chlorine removes natural oils covering hair resulting in loss of hair shine and flexibility, as well as making them more susceptible to mechanical damage. Reaction of chlorine with keratin results in creation of water-soluble chemicals and weakens chemical bonds between fibres forming hair shafts. Also chlorine can get between the hair fibres. As the crystallization process develops inside the hair, the chlorine crystals can separate the hair fibres disrupting structural integrity of hair shaft. Once the bonds are broken, the hair becomes weak and ends of the hairs split. Chlorine salt crystallization process may also affect the hair cuticle. The cuticle is an outer layer of very hard, dead cells over the hair surface. If the chlorine gets between the scales it could push up the scales; therefore, making it rough and prone to damage or breakage. These flaked cuticles reflect light poorly and so the hair fibre looks dull, dry and may feel rough when touched

Hair Loss Resulting From Stress

Hair Loss Resulting From Stress

, Everyone gets stressed from time to time but what happens when stress becomes a regular part of daily life?  Stress can damage to the human body to any extent, from affecting our ability to cope and interact with the world around us, to more physical symptoms such as hair loss. Stress can cause a hair loss condition known as Telogen Effluvium. Trigger  for Telogen Effluvium can be anything from childbirth and pregnancy terminations to more severe emotional distress, often caused by personal traumas such as divorce, or an unexpected accident.

At any one time, around 10% of hair is naturally in its resting phase, known as the telogen phase. When a person feels intense stress – whether emotional or physical, the body releases a large amount of adrenaline; this transmits a signal to the hair follicles which causes them to enter the telogen (resting) phase early, where they stay for three months. During this phase there is no new hair growth. This results in an uneven hair growth .The final stage of the telogen phase, after around three months, is shedding to allow new hair to grow through. Consequently, around three months after the trigger incident, sudden and drastic hair loss can occur. This causes thinning hair all over the scalp. It is often a temporary condition where the hair growth returns to normal approximately six to twelve months after the event.

Hair Loss Resulting From Stress

However, in some cases it can trigger Male Pattern Baldness or Female Pattern Hair Loss in those with the ‘balding gene’. For those people already experiencing these forms of hereditary hair loss, stress can accelerate the rate of shedding. These permanent, genetic conditions may require treatment to prevent severe all-over hair thinning or baldness.

Why are women more susceptible to Telogen Effluvium?

As there are a wider possible series of triggers that affect women, it is not surprising that this condition affects females more than males. Several potential triggers of Telogen Effluvium are related to child bearing and can only be experienced by women. Far from being an unusual affliction, it’s estimated that around a fifth of new mothers experience some hair loss after giving birth, with some studies placing the figure as high as 45%.This is in sharp contrast to pregnancy, when many women notice their hair feels stronger and looks glossier, largely thanks to the influx of progesterone and oestrogen the body releases around this time. After birth, the body instantly drops these hormone levels, which can shock hair into its resting phase, causing Telogen Effluvium.The same is true of women who experience hair loss following a termination or while taking a contraceptive pill – the sudden change in hormone levels is a key trigger.

How are men affected?

There are several potential triggers which affect both sexes equally; these can include surgery, , extreme grief or stress, or some medical treatments that can cause both female and male hair loss. Undergoing major surgery places a huge strain on an individual, both physically and emotionally. Although procedures which affect the scalp, such as micrografting follicles, have an increased chance of causing Telogen Effluvium, it can be caused by any type of major surgery which causes a shock to the body. There are also a number of drugs associated with surgery, mainly blood thinners and cholesterol lowering drugs, which have hair loss as an associated symptom.

Extreme stress, sudden shock or trauma are all thought to contribute to the onset of the autoimmune condition Alopecia Areata. This presents as rounded bald spots or patches anywhere on the scalp and, whilst in this mild to moderate form alopecia areata treatment can be successful in regrowing hair, there are versions of this condition – alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis –for which an effective treatment is yet to be found.

Why Does Stress Cause Hair Loss?

As hair is considered to have a non-essential body function, the body will react to stress in a way that it considers being least harmful, hence the hair growth cycle can be affected.

How to Treat Stress-Related Hair Loss?

It is important to resolve the issue that is causing the stress or learn how to manage the stress so it has a lesser impact. Examples of how to deal with ‘small’ stresses include taking up a hobby you enjoy, exercise, meditation, spending time with friends and reading. It is important that this becomes a regular part of your routine to help the body relax and release tension. For stress that is more severe, such as divorce, workplace bullying, job loss or the death of a loved one, it is advisable to seek the help of a counselor, support group or therapist. Once the underlying stress is being managed, it is possible to use hair loss treatments to help restore the hair growth cycle to its optimum condition. There are two hair loss products that have been proven to be effective and safe. Treatment courses featuring Minoxidil (suitable for men and women) can be tailored to suit each individual and, when used alongside the correct combination of hair growth boosters, can restore normal, strong and healthy hair production. Where there is underlying genetic balding, or where stress-related hair loss has triggered male pattern baldness in men with an inherited predisposition, finasteride 1mg can also be taken. This once-a- day oral tablet is only suitable for men aged 18 and over. Whatever is causing the hair loss, trying to cope with it can add to the stress already being experienced. A specialist will be able to give you an accurate diagnosis, answer any questions you have and discuss treatment options.

Hair care in summer

Hair care in summer, it can be a wonderful time with the sun shining and the clear blue skies. However it is not a good match for your hair. Indian summers are infamous for being harsh and humid and lasting for almost eight months. Skin care and hair care rituals grow with the coming of the summer months and you find yourself spending more time on trying to protect your hair and skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Hair becomes frizzy, limp and loses its bounciness. With the addition of pollution, it becomes dull and no longer shiny and healthy. A number of hair care tips are available to provide nourishment to your hair even under the glaring sun.

hair care in summer

  1. During summers, your hair becomes dry and fizzy. Recently, the conventional hair wisdom has been that you should not shampoo every day. But daily shampooing is good as long as you use mild shampoo (ph balanced).  In fact, in summer days, excess sebum is produced on the scalp, making hair oily. So it’s important to wash hair and gently exfoliate the scalp regularly to keep it clean and healthy. A gentle shampoo for freshness and moisture in summer helps keep your scalp and hair clean and nourished. Over shampooing strips the scalp of natural oils. Therefore it must be avoided. Instead the scalp should be kept oil-free by using shampoo in alternative days.
  2. It is important to oil your hair at least once a week during summers. Hair oil nourishes your hair and provides it with the moisture that it has lost. In order to get rid of dryness, hair should be oiled and gently massaged. You can keep it overnight and wash it off the next day.
  3. Blow drying your hair results in frizziness. Therefore it should be avoided as much as possible during summers. Instead you should let your hair dry naturally and brush it with a wide-toothed comb after it has dried. This help in untangling the hair without damaging it.
  4. Avoid tying your hair in tight rubber bands and instead let it flow freely. This reduces the accumulation of sweat on the scalp which attracts dust and pollution and leads to Itchiness.
  5. Before going out, cover your hair with a scarf to protect it from the harsh sun. Sun rays can be very harmful to your hair and skin both. Therefore it should be kept covered. Also, you should never step out of the house without any sunscreen.  
  6. Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
  7. It is important to take at least 10 minutes out of your regular schedule and devote time to your hair and skin in order to avoid a lifetime of damage.

Love Your Hair and Make It Grow Thick

Love Your Hair and Make It Grow Thick, Stress or worry is one of the biggest causes of hair loss. It literally squeezes the life out of your hair follicles and results in hair loss And that causes you more stress. So it’s a never ending cycle and you got to break free from it. So how do you do it?

The only way you can get your hair back is by not getting upset or fussed about hair loss. This doesn’t mean you stop caring for it. You care, but not get obsessive about it. Not look into mirror ever hour and check whether your hair has grown or not.

How is that possible? When you’re losing tons of hair and start to feel ugly and think no one’s going to like me, or what will my friends think. That is exactly when you must let go of hair mania and accept yourself the way you are. Acceptance doesn’t mean you give up. It means you are at peace with reality.

One way to calm down instantly is by bringing your focus to your Breath. You will notice that it is shallow and fast. Sit on a chair and start to focus on your breathing. Just watch your breath go in and out. Do that for 5 minutes or so.

This will help you reconnect with your present work and will break you from Oh my poor hair or victim cycle.

Let go of the idea of perfect hair.

  • Take care of hair without being too attached to the result. If it grows fine It’s just hair and I am not dying without it.
  • A few months after, just when you stopped being mad about hair It will start to grow back. And will become healthier and thicker.

Be Happy Now and Enjoy Your Life

We always postpone our happiness to tomorrow. We look at happiness as something that will come after we achieve certain thing: If I get gorgeous hair that turns heads I will be really happyOr if I get: a nice home, a perfect partner, the dream job… I will be truly happy.

But when we get these goals, instead of being happy and celebrating our achievements, we are often looking forward to being happy when we meet our next goal.

Happiness is not something that will happen to us if things go well. Happiness is here, now, with things the way they are, with your hair thick or thin.

Reminds me of this beautiful quote by Swami Satchidananda

When you go after something hoping that it will make you happy by getting it, you have already traded away your peace.

Do you want to be happy now? Practice gratitude.

Be grateful for what’s in your lives. It helps us to appreciate all the beautiful things we already have, and what we have received, and the people who love us or who have helped us. Spending time in nature is another great way to connect with peace and happiness. Go take a walk each day in a park or woods. Or find a water body – pond, lake, river, sea – and spend some time taking a look at it.

When we look at nature we never think oh this tree should be a little slim or it should have more branches, we accept it the way it is. Love it the way it is. So why be so harsh on over selves? Don’t be. You are just perfect and your hair is beautiful the way it is.

How to Prevent Hair Loss When Losing Weight

How to Prevent Hair Loss When Losing Weight, Hair loss from weight loss is generally due to a condition known as telogen effluvium. Under normal circumstances, hair grows as much as ½ inch per month for approximately 2 years then goes into a resting phase knows as telogen. At the end of the resting phase, old hairs fall out to make room for new hairs. Approximately 10 percent of the hair goes into resting phase. Physical and emotional stress from dieting can cause more hair than usual to go into resting phase, and fall out when new hairs come in.

How to Prevent Hair Loss When Losing Weight
1. Make sure you are eating enough calories. While you do need to restrict calories for weight loss, restricting too much can cause hair loss because the body does not have enough energy to support hair growth.

2. Eat enough protein, which is a major component of the hair. Protein needs are based on individual factors such as body weight and activity levels.

3. Incorporate whole grains, fruits and vegetables into your diet. Whole grains contain iron which, according to the National Anaemia Action Council, is a major factor in hair loss. Fruits and vegetables also contain vitamins A, C and E as well as zinc, which all contribute to hair growth.

4. Take a nutritional supplement, such as a multivitamin, which contains at least 100 percent of your RDA for all vitamins and minerals.
