Rubbing of scalp
A vigorous rubbing of the scalp with fingers after washing the hair with cold water is one of the most effective among the several home remedies for the prevention and treatment of hair loss. The scalp should be rubbed vigorously till it starts to tingle with the heat. It will activate the sebaceous glands and energise the circulation of blood in the affected area, making the hair grow healthy.

Using amla oil
Amla oil, prepared by boiling dry pieces of amla in coconut oil, is considered a valuable hair tonic for enriching hair growth. A mixture of an equal quantity of fresh amla juice and lime juice, used as a shampoo also stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.

Using lettuce
Lettuce is useful in preventing hair loss. A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice is believed to help the growth of hair if taken to the extent to half a litre a day

Using mustard oil and henna leaves
Mustard oil, boiled with henna leaves, is useful for healthy growth of hair. About 250 ml of mustard oil should be boiled in a tin basin. About sixty grams of henna leaves should be gradually put in this oil till they are burnt in the oil. The oil should then be filtered using a cloth and stored. Regular massage of the head with the oil will produce abundant hair.

Using coconut milk
The application of coconut milk all over the scalp and massaging it into the hair roots is also beneficial in the treatment of hair loss. It nourishes the hair and promotes hair growth. Coconut milk is prepared by grinding the coconut shavings and squeezing them well.

Using onion
Onion has also been found beneficial in patchy baldness. The affected part should be rubbed with onions morning and evening till it is red. It should be rubbed with honey afterwards.

Using other remedies
Daily application of refined coconut oil, mixed with lime water and lime juice on the hair, prevents hair loss and lengthens it. Application of the juice of green coriander leaves on the head is also considered beneficial. Washing the hair with a paste of cooked black gram and fenugreek lengthens the hair. Regular use of castor oil as hair oil helps the luxuriant growth of the hair.

Daily diet
The healthy condition of the hair depends, to a very large extent, on the intake of sufficient amounts of essential nutrients in the daily diet. Persons with a tendency to lose hair should take a well-balanced and correct diet, made up of foods which, in combination, should supply all the essential nutrients. It has been found that a diet which contains liberal quantities of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits would provide adequate amounts of all the essential nutrients. Each food group should roughly form the bulk of one of the three principal meals. These foods should, however, be supplemented with certain special foods such as milk, vegetable oils, honey, wheat germ, yeast and liver.

Uses Of Olive Oil For Beauty


The plain, old, as well as cheap, olive oil is a frequent ingredient in my beauty regimen. Rich in polyphenols, antioxidants such as vitamins E and K, and essential fatty acids, olive oil can actually help delay aging in an amazing way. I believe there is more than one way we can use olive oil for beauty purposes.

1. Facial Moisturizer 
I don’t know about you, but I love using oil on my face so much. It has, to some degree, saved my eye wrinkles from becoming “crepey.”
2. Hand Moisturizer 
If you have ignored to pamper your hands in your beauty regime, it’s time to give them some well-deserved attention. Lack of maintenance can lead to unsightly wrinkles on hands. Another benefit of using olive oil as a hand moisturizer is that it can provide moisture to cuticles and make your nail polish last longer.
3. Hair Conditioner
Have you ever tried using hot oil treatment on your hair? It can restore moisture in your hair shafts, making your hair look softer and less dry. I like mixing egg yolk and olive oil as a pre-shampoo treatment. I think this method works better for me, because it’s less time-consuming. You can also rub olive oil on your hair to prevent frizz.
4. Body Moisturizer/Scrub
Depending on how you use it, olive oil can be a body moisturizer or body scrub. To use it as a body moisturizer, simply rub some olive oil on your damp skin. To use it as a body scrub, add some sugar to make a paste.
5. Makeup Remover
The cleansing ability of olive oil is quite good. It can remove my light make-up nicely. I also have the impression that removing my eye make-up with olive oil can be moisturizing. Don’t forget you can massage your face and neck (if you apply any make-up on the neck) while cleansing.
6. Sunscreen Remover
I can’t find any evidence suggesting that olive oil can remove water proof sunscreen. But I’ve used it to remove sunscreen on my limbs for more than a few times, and it works. If you’re like me, too busy (or lazy?) to look for a suitable body wash, you may want to give olive oil a go. But people said it can be messy at times.
7. Wax Wipes
When the finish wipes of my wax stripes are running out (which is a frequent occurrence), I used mineral oil to wipe off the wax residue. But I decided to go adventurous and replace mineral oil with olive oil. Olive oil may even be better than mineral oil, because it’s completely natural.
8. Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)
Olive oil, coupled with castor oil, can be used to clean your face, but you may need to adjust the ratio of the oils according to your skin type. For dry skin, you will need more olive oil. I still can’t get over the mental obstacle of cleansing my face with oil without using a normal cleanser, so I can’t tell whether oil cleansing method will work or not. I’ve heard people raving about it though.
Olive oil can actually be applied to anywhere on your skin and body. Have you tried anything above?

1. Invest in the bestFirst and foremost avoid hair products which contain alcohol as they will dry out the hair even further. Look for shampoos that contain oils like coconut. Moisturising type shampoos tend to coat the hair and trap the moisture inside the hair shaft.
2. Oil it up: Coconut is the best oil for hair massage. Hair massage should be done twice a week; never massage your hair with hot oil as it is not healthy for the scalp. Leave your hair oiled for at least 4 hours and not more than 24 hours; otherwise dust will accumulate on the scalp leading to dandruff and dry hair thus hair fall.
3. Wash it well: Prepare the hair for shampooing; before wetting them by combing through with a wide toothed comb to prevent hair tangles. Never wash your hair and scalp with hot water; apply the shampoo to the hair by diluting it first, pour it out onto your hand and then use it, never directly. Apply it using your hands and fingers while massaging firmly in rotating and circular movements. Massage your whole head well and then rinse the hair and scalp thoroughly. women  should wash their hair on alternate days and men can wash on daily basis.
Apply more shampoo and massage for the second time if needed, dry your hair gently. Don't rub just blot the wet hair with a towel and then smooth the towel along the length of your hair.
4. Condition it all: A conditioner is to hair what a moisturiser is to the skin if you want shiny and easily manageable hair with bounce and strength; then apply a little conditioner. Always rub the conditioner on the body of the hair and not on the scalp; keep it on for 30 seconds only and rinse off. Go for protein or moisturising conditioner.
5. Keep it simple and naturalAvoid blow drying, colouring, ironing as far as possible.
6. Detangling techniquesHair should always be combed when its dry, never comb your wet hair; as hair bonds will break. Always use a wide toothed comb to detangle your hair; the comb should run smoothly and shouldn't be used to open knots, as it will end up breaking and damaging the hair. You can also use your fingers to detangle your hair gently and slowly.
7. Power of yogurt protein: Add the power of yogurt protein to your hair; Yogurt is hailed as one of the best natural protein conditioners for hair. To garner the benefits of yogurt, put about half a cup of yogurt in a blender and work it into a smooth paste. Coat your hair with yogurt and wrap it up in a towel. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then wash your hair thoroughly. You can also apply mayonnaise to get rid of dry hair.
8. Egg mask: Make your own hair mask to repair dry and brittle hair; remove the yellow part of egg and add 2 spoons of curd in white part and 2 spoons of lemon juice, apply this mask over scalp and keep it on the body of hair for 20 minutes and then wash it off.
9. Avocado mask: Peel and mash a ripe avocado until it begins to look like guacamole. Mix it in an egg yolk with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Massage this mixture into damp hair and tuck your hair under a shower cap. Leave it on for an hour then rinse, shampoo and condition your hair.
10. Dietary supplementsThere are many dietary supplements which can help you have healthy hair naturally. Eat foods that are rich in vitamin B such as peas, beans, carrots, nuts and eggs. Another vitamin which is essential for healthy hair is biotin or vitamin H which is present in brown rice, soya-beans and walnuts.
