Dr. Vinod Sonawane, Hair Transplant Surgeon
There are several hair product  advertisements, for different types of hair and different types of hair problems, but we miss on the very simple and basic things that can give us lustrous hair. Following are some simple lifestyle changes you can make to improve your hair health drastically-  Wash your hair at least 3 times a week.  Most people use styling product or gel, so it is necessary to clean the buildup. Regular washing keeps the hair follicles clean so new hair growth has a clear path to your scalp’s surface. Most people use way too much shampoo to wash hair, only a small amount, the size of a coin is the right amount of shampoo that is required to wash the hair properly and clean the scalp. Dry the hair naturally. Any soft cotton cloth should be used for drying the hair, heavy towels should not be used for tying the hair. Trim the hair regularly every 6 to 8 weeks,this will help in getting rid of split ends.Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water everyday . Your diet should be rich in protein, iron, zinc.Massage the scalp, with your finger tips for 5 minutes, 2-3 times a day.  This increases the blood flow in the scalp region and aids hair growth. In India, the tradition of massaging oil in the scalp before bathing is followed, this improves blood flow and helps in conditioning the hairs. Even when you are not washing or applying oil to hair, still you should massage scalp everyday for 5 minutes.Blow drying and styling hair should be limited for special occasions.A few changes in routine life and habits can make a huge difference to the health of your hair. If you try these changes, you will witness them yourself!

Be Careful- Are These Things Damaging Your Hair?

Dr. Bhavesh Shah, Dermatologist
It’s such heartbreak to find your once healthy and shiny shock of hair become brittle, coarse or have split ends. Hair damage doesn’t just hurt the follicle, but also our hearts and our looks. Touching such hair often brings one question to the mind: why did this happen?Heat treatmentsStyling hair often requires using tools such as hair dryers, hot rollers, curling irons and flat irons. They all involve heating the hair follicle, which results in loss of moisture, making it brittle and rough.“There are bonds in the hair shaft that get damaged due to excessive heat. The hair roots become weak and break. This thermal damage to the hair shaft may result in severe hair fall and rough hair,”IronsWomen frequently use flat irons for temporary straightening. After a point, the hair is not able to take any more heat and just burns. Curling and flat irons use high temperatures and therefore should be purchased judiciously and used carefully.Buy good quality irons even if they are expensive. Substandard goods can permanently damage our hair.Hair dryersUse the dryer sparingly and on the minimum setting. The best thing to do is to allow the hair to air dry. Best hairstylists would suggest that heat treatment should be alternated with intensive hair care to reverse the damage. After a heat treatment, pamper your hair with heavy masks, intensive spa treatments and serums. Actually, it is a vicious circle—you straighten your hair quiet frequently. After a while the hair looks awful if not treated, so you go for another procedure. So a gap between heat treatments and nourishment for hair are critical.Chemical treatmentsServices such as bleaching, hair dyeing, perming, relaxing and straightening use strong chemicals. The chemical treatments lead the hair cuticle to swell up, making it weak and prone to damage. The harsh chemicals leech away the layers of fat and moisture that impart glow to the hair. These chemicals also harm the protein bonds that keep our hair strong and shinning.Most of the chemicals are available off the shelf and people try them on their own. If not used properly, they may cause much damage.Relaxers are chemicals used to apply controlled damage to straighten excessively curly hair. There ought to be at least a gap of 8 – 10 weeks between treatments. This gives the hair time to grow about an inch. The relaxers can then be applied to the new growth. If you apply them to already straightened hair, it damages the follicles.Also, applying hair colour to chemically-straightened hair causes chemical over processing, leading hair to become dry and prone to breakage.To avoid having frizzy, brittle hair that breaks easily, is rough and has split ends, the best alternative is to shun chemical treatments completely. However, that’s not an option if you are one to experiment with different hair styles and looks. If you must have a chemical hair treatment, take precautions. “Always use branded chemicals. Do not apply it for too long and never for over 30 minutes. Keratin therapy and oral supplements like biotin also help restore damaged hair,”Use mild shampoos and conditioners that suit your hair type to keep your hair healthy. Hair serums also smoothen the cuticle. Opt for products with dimethicone, which make the hair shinier and reduces static.Bad weather conditionsSometimes weather and environmental factors too are responsible for hair damage. Continuous exposure to strong UV rays breaks down the principle protection barrier in the hair—protein. This constant onslaught of weather makes hair brittle and causes them to split. Now, if such hair is treated chemically, the damage is two-fold.Some people have an allergic reaction when exposed to sunlight. They experience itching and irritation in the scalp, which leads to breakage. The harsh sunlight bleaches the hair and makes them frizzy. Try and keep the hair covered when moving out in intense sunlight for longer periods.Even the winters are not merciful. The cold winds sap the atmosphere of the moisture leaving behind tangled hair with roughened cuticles. Also due to the cold, the hair is shampooed less frequently giving rise to dandruff.While regular oiling is good for hair, excessive oiling isn’t. “It has been noticed that excess application of oil increases dandruff,” says Chaturvedi. Dandruff leads to other hair problems as it calls for using treatment products containing chemicals that could rob the moisture, again leading to breakage and brittle hair.Bad handlingIf you aren’t gentle with your hair, there will be essential damage. Rough combing, using too tight fasteners, not protecting the hair while sleeping—all contribute to breakage. The old adage of hundred brush strokes to your hair may actually cause more harm than good if the brush is too rough. Often, after a workout or an outdoor spree the hair gets sweaty. The salt deposit weakens hair.Also, while swimming, protect the hair with a cap as the chlorinated water is bad for hair. To repair damage, use oils and moisturisers that provide protein to the hair. Extensively impaired hair requires expert treatments. In case of excessively burnt hair, the damage is can be irreversible. You can only wait for new growth to replace the destroyed hair. Your hair may not be restored to its original glory, but some relief can be expected.Other ProblemsSome of the other problems like fever, thyroid, anemia etc are also the causes for the hair damage and hair loss. Nutrients and minerals insufficiency for the body is also the cause of hair damage

GROWTH OF HAIR AND FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE HAIR GROWTHWhen a new baby is born, he or she has soft, fine and downy hair called lanugo that disappears shortly after the birth. Normally hair on the scalp and other parts of body becomes thicker and coarser. In middle age, hair growth can be seen on the ears of men and women develop the same on face at the time of menopause. This is due to change in endocrine pattern.Stages of hair growth-ANAGEN HAIR (Period of Active Growth)The stage when the growing is in process, the hair is called ‘Anagen’ hair. Anagen hair keeps on growing from two to five years. In Anagen hair, the cells of follicle grow, divide and are keratinized in order to make hair grow. Having keratin means that the base of the hair shaft is moist and soft and the rest of hair shaft above hair bulb is dark pigmented.CATAGEN HAIR (Period of Transition or Breakdown and Change)When the hair is under transition stage, which is from root to end, the hair is called ‘catagen’ hair. Catagen hair, begin transitional, live for about 7 to 15 days. During this transition phase, the growth activity of the hair stops. Growth of hair is not a continuous affair as some people think. Hair growing takes a resting phase during which no growth takes place and the roots of the resting hair become club-shaped. It is this condition that is called club hairs.TELOGEN HAIR (Resting Stage before Resumption Of Growth)Catagen hair live for some time and when they are in the state of rest without any change, they are called ‘Telogen’ hair. Telogen hair are also called club hair. They are in the state of rest for three to four months before they grow or are pushed from follicle due to growth of another hair or due to some harsh combing/ brushing or hard massaging/continuous drying of hair by hot hair-blower or in fight etc. All these are mechanical reasons.Factors that Influence the Hair GrowthAge: – Growth of hair is fastest from the age of fifteen to late twenties. The hair grows faster and the rate of growth slows down when the hair have grown to its maximum. There is no limit to maximum but some doctors are of the opinion that this limit is three feel which means that when the hair are over three feet long, the growth rate drops to half the former growth rate. Nervous and circulatory system: – The hair is affected by the state of the nervous system and circulatory system. This means that hair have a direct relation with functioning of the entire human organism, mind, sentiments, emotions and the body. Any such stimulation in the body by grief, emotions, etc. makes impact over the opulence of the nerve and blood supply to the head. If grief or emotions continue for some days, it affects the growth of hair.Chemicals & Drugs: – Chemical and drug reactions also affect the growth of hair. The coloring of hair and dyeing of hair are virtually exposure to chemical reactions and many persons who dye or color their hair have retarded hair growth or encounter falling of hair.Heredity: – The heredity/genes actually determine the hair density, growth and color of hair.Hormones: – Hormonal change is one of the reasons for growth of hair.Your Hair – An Index  to your Health….Our hair is not just ‘dead’ protein it is a pointer to what is happening deep inside our body and mind. Hair has more to it than what appears on the surface.  It says a lot more about us than what the stars foretell. The health of our hair and scalp provides us with insightful cues about a host of ‘latent’ health disorders.In addition, our hair, like our psyche, responds to both physical and emotional stressors, including underlying health deviations,  much before apparent clinical symptoms manifest.DRY, LIMP, THIN HAIR:-This may be a ‘cursor’ for hypothyroidism. In some cases, the ‘tell-tale’  sign is hair loss on the eyebrows, especially in the outer area of the eyebrow.SCALY  OR CRUSTY PATCHES ON THE SCALP:-This indicates psoriasis, a common skin disorder. It occurs when the skin for a ‘toss,’ sending out flawed signals that accelerate the turnover and growth of skin cells. The detection of psoriasis can help us prevent and treat more serious condition- especially psoriatic arthritis, or painful swelling of the joints with scaly psoriatic distress.OVERALL THINNING:-It’s customary to shed about 50-100 hairs a day. But, when hair appears to be coming out in ‘clumps,’ it’s time for action. Any extreme stress can be the reason for hair loss, liking losing a job can cause extreme hair loss. Likewise, about of flu or fever, illnesses like jaundice, typhoid and malaria can cause hair loss.

Summer Care for Your Hair- Things You Must Do This Summer!

Dr. Hrishikesh Bhujbal, Homeopath
Summer moisture and the summer sun can be damaging to your hair. Proper preventative steps need to be taken during this season to ensure that your hair does not get damaged. Here are 19 things you should know this summer:Summer Hair Care TipsWear a scarf, hat, or cap to protect your hair from the sun; but make sure that it's not so tight where it will restrict the blood circulation in your scalp. If you know you are going to be in the sun for a long time and if you don't want to wear anything on your head, use a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen in it before you go out. If you are outside and forgot to use leave-in conditioner with sunscreen in your hair, you can put regular sunscreen in your hair, but make sure you rinse it out with a deep cleansing shampoo when you get home. Limit your use of "hot" items on your hair such as a blow dryers and curling irons. If you need to use a "hot" item, use a leave-in conditioner before using the item on your hair. Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead; the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin. Staying hydrated is important for healthy hair as well as your overall health so make sure that you are drinking enough water. Avoid hair products with formaldehyde or alcohol in it which dry out hair. Try to use natural products that are gentler on your hair. Try washing your hair less often; shampooing your hair strips the moisture out of your hair. Use a conditioner on your hair daily.Try using a dry shampoo if you need to wash out your hair. One dry shampoo you can use is baby powder, simply sprinkle some onto your hair and use a comb to comb it off. Use a moisturizing shampoo that is gentler than your regular shampoo for the summer. Before going into the pool/ocean, wet your hair; this will decrease the absorption of chlorinated/salt water into your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo after swimming to wash out the chlorine/salt and any residues that may be in your hair. Chlorine will severely dry out your hair if it is not washed out. Get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks. Your hair grows faster in the warmer months and frizzes are more common in the summer months due to the heat and moisture. Hair products that have the word "Replenish" on them are made to moisturize your hair. Knotting your hair, braiding it or wearing it up or in a bun will help contain frizzes. Putting conditioner on the frizzy areas of your hair and sleeping with your hair up or with plastic around your hair will help re-moisturize the dry areas of your hair. Once you have your hair moist, lock in the moisture by running your hair through cold water; this will also give your hair an extra shine.

Top Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning in Women

Dr. Jolly Shah Kapadia, Dermatologist
For women, hair means way more than a bundle of fibres. Long or short, bouncy or straight, it's an expression of your style and personality. Losing those lovely tresses can really freak you out. Hair Loss, a nightmareWhether it’s short- or long-term, women lose hair the same way men do. It might thin all over, or your centre part could get wider and wider. You might even get a bald spot at the crown of your head. Rarely women also have a receding front hairline.How Does Hair Grow?Your scalp has about 1,00,000 hair. Each one has its own life cycle. A follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month. It stays for 2 to 6 years, then stops for about a month. When the next cycle starts up, that hair falls out. At any given time, most of your hair are in the growth phase.How Much Hair Loss Is Normal?Most people shed about 50-100 hair every day. Don’t worry if you find a few in your hairbrush or on your clothes. But if it starts to fall out in clumps or if you notice it getting thinner over time, check with your Dermatologist.What are the root causes of Hair Loss?There’s no single cause. Triggers range from medical conditions, to stress and lifestyle factors, like what you eat. Your genes play a role, too. Sometimes there may not be a specific reason.Major Hair Loss Triggers in women: Thyroid Problems: If the thyroid makes too much or too little thyroid hormone,your hair growth cycle might get affected. You may develop progressive thinning of hair all over the scalp.PCOS: If you have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), your hormones are always shaky. Your body makes more male hormones, or androgen, than it should. This can cause extra hair on your face and body while the hair on your head thins out. PCOS can also lead to ovulation problems, acne, and weight gain. But sometimes thinning hair is the only obvious sign.Childbirth: You might notice your hair seems fuller during pregnancy.That’s because high hormone levels keep resting hairs from falling out. But after the baby comes, things go back to normal and those strands will fall out quickly. You could lose a lot of hair at once. It could take up to 2 years for your lovely hair to return to normal.The Pill: The hormones that suppress ovulation can also thin out your hair.You can also lose hair when you stop taking the pill. Medicines: Drugs like blood thinners those which treat high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, and depression; methotrexate, cholesterol lowering medications, chemotherapeutic agents etc. can cause hair loss.Crash Diets: You may lose more than weight with a fad diet. And if you lose weight more rapidly, you might also lose hair in a couple of months. Deficiency: A longstanding deficiency of Iron, Folic acid, and other nutrients can also trigger off hair loss and thinning.Tight Hairstyles: Wearing tight ponytails can irritate your scalp and cause hair to fall out. Long-term use of these styles can scar your scalp and lead to permanent hair loss.Cancer Treatment: Chemo and radiation therapy, two of the most widely used therapies, can take a toll on your hair. In their quest to kill cancer cells, both can harm hair follicles and trigger dramatic hair loss. But the damage is almost always short-lived. Once your treatment is finished, hair usually grows back.Extreme Stress: High-level physical or emotional stress can cause you to suddenly shed huge amounts of hair. The process may last 6 to 8 months. Examples of extreme stress are: - Serious illness- Major surgery- Trauma involving blood loss- Severe emotional distressHope this gives you a fair idea about the possible reasons for losing your crowning glory.The good news is, there's often a way to fix it. I will deal with the same in my next health feed. Till then, take care of your Hair!
