Grey Hair: is a symptom of improper prot synthesis. Hair grows white when melanin ceases to be produced in hair follicle & sm air spaces take its place. As a person grows older & reaches middle age, more & more of these pigment cells die & color is lost from individual hairs. Early greying is basically hereditary or by stress. Pulling out grey hair will make 2grow in its place is a myth. What can happen, however, is that if ur hair is starting to turn grey & u pull 1 grey hair out, it may well be that neighboring grey hair is just about to start growing, therefore 2hairs in close proximity will appear at about same time.

4.Beat till frothy l.juice & castor oil, mix in ‘henna’, apply evenly over scalp, bath after 1hr using ‘shikakai’ & ‘ritha’ shampoo as above. This checks greying
5. 1c strong black tea without milk + 1Tsalt, cool, strain, msg it on roots. Leave it on for 1hr, rinse with cold water. Do not shampoo it.

Exercising causes great damage to hair. Sweat will cause dirt, grease to settle in scalp etc. Tie it back, pin it up or clip it loose enough. Block sweat by wearing wide cotton headband that will absorb salt which dries out delicate roots near scalp thereby damaging hair. Avoid wearing cap while exercising, glands need to breathe. After working out, avoid taking hot shower, might damage hair. L.warm water is always best for shampooing. Conditioning is a must, will protect hair from damage.

While swimming wear cap after wetting hair c’tely. Wash hair thoroughly afterwards in order to remove chlorine. If possible, apply leave-in conditioner before u dive in. Steam baths or saunas can dry out strands. Always apply a dab of leave-in conditioner or light jojoba to strands to help offset heat.

Strong hair: Protein which is building block of hair(chicken, meats, chicken, eggs, curd, milk), B12 & Fe(asparagus, cumin, turmeric) may prevent hair loss, silica(strawberry, sunflower seeds) strengthens hair.  

Shiny hair: Omega 3(salmon, sardines, tuna) encourages regrowth & prevents hair loss by feeding scalp with oils, vit E(leafy greens, broccoli, brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, berries, coconut oil) helps scalp circulation, vitC maintains good scalp health.

Dry hair: Iodine & zinc(helps oils to get out of scalp & into the hair & thus strengthens hair, make it shiny, full) prevents dry hair & hair loss.
