Fallen Out

                Hi Babes, I got a query regarding hair loss and breakage here in my blog so here I am with some ways to control hair loss. Nowadays, excess loss of hair is very common. It happens for various reasons such as emotional and physical stress in our lives, local scalp infection, adverse drug reaction, hormonal imbalances during teenage and pregnancy, etc.
               It is normal to shed around about a hundred hair strands a day. Interestingly, the fall out occurs mostly in the morning, this fact remains unexplained. The longer the hair, the less is the hair loss. Hair grows on an average of 6 inches a year, and shortfall in the normal hair growth is accompanied with a hair loss too. Apart from the daily loss, we shed more than usual hair during 6 periods of our life- from birth to age 3, at 10, at 22, around the age of 26, at 36 and around 54. This happens due to hormonal changes that occur in our bodies during these periods of our lives. The maximum hair growth on women occurs between the age of 15 to 30.
            To arrest rapid hair fall start to massage your with equal quantities of castor and almond oil, followed by hot towel therapy. Now apply a paste made out of 2 tsps each of amla powder (Indian Gooseberry), shikakai powder (Acacia Concinna), reetha powder (soapnut) and fenugreek powder. Also add to it 1 tsp ground black pepper paste and 2 eggs. leave on hair and scalp for 45 mins and shampoo off. Repeat once a week and also use henna once a week. Continue this treatment for a month to get results.
            Massage with sesame or olive oil and follow with  hot towel therapy. Now take 4 tsp mayonnaise, 2 tbsp honey, 2 tsps each of almond, shikakai (Acacia Concinna ) and reetha (soapnut) powders, and make a paste with adequate milk. Apply from roots to end and on scalp. Shampoo off after an hour. This treatment will stop hair loss and fortify your hair.
              Use a Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri)- Amla hair oil that will help to promote hair growth. Also you can use the hair pack to arrest hair fall which I had included in my post Glorious Mane- Packs.
         Grind 20 hibiscus flowers and leaves and mix this paste with 2 eggs. Apply on your scalp and hair and leave on for an hour. wash off with plain water. A simple but sure cure for hair fall.
          Take 50 gms of Gulbandi Almonds, 2 tsp castor oil, 10 hibiscus flowers and grind well. Add enough milk to make a paste of toothpaste consistency. Apply all over scalp and hair length and leave on for 30-45 mins, wash off with a mild herbal shampoo.
          Massage hair with a warm coconut oil and apply this paste- 100 gms fenugreek powder, 1 egg and juice of 2 lemons. Apply all over scalp and leave on for an hour and shampoo off preferably with a lemon or hibiscus based shampoo.
            All these treatments are also for fortifying your hair. Regularity will also decrease hair breakage along with arresting hair fall.
            Include fresh fruits and veggies in your diet also remember the GLVs. Increase your intake of dairy products, fish, eggs and nuts. Consult a doctor and take vitamins on a daily basis. Meditation helps so try it out.
           Tomorrow I will come up with the recipes of homemade hair oils to reduce hair loss and give you a headful of gorgeous hair.
