How to Prevent and Treat Hair Loss

  • Posted on October 31, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Hair loss can be incredibly embarrassing for women and unfortunately, many women who suffer from it do so in silence. But the sooner you get help, the sooner you can start to treat the problem. It’s also more common than you might think, too, with approximately 5% of women under 60 and 60% of women over 70 suffering. Generally, hair loss appears in the form of general thinning all over the crown, rather than one larger bald patch, although women suffering from certain medical conditions like alopecia might experience the latter.

Often, women suffering from hair loss don’t experience it in the same way that men might. In male pattern baldness, hair thins, recedes and a bald spot often appears on the crown. In female pattern baldness, hair just tends to thin out and the first sign is often a thinner ponytail or a wider hair parting.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss in women can be caused by a number of things. Genetics do play a part, and if your mom and your grandma lost their hair or had thin hair, chances are, you will too. But hair loss can also be caused by the use of certain chemicals and medications in or on the body, in the case of chemotherapy, certain steroids, or certain drug therapies. Using lots of harsh chemicals on the hair can also cause it to break and snap, and if these chemicals are used on or close to the scalp, can cause hair to snap off at the roots. Things like bleach, harsh hair dyes and certain hair treatments, such as perms and straightening treatments, can all cause major damage to the hair if used too frequently.

Hair loss can also be caused by a disorder called alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system starts to attack certain parts of your body and in some cases, for no apparent reason, will start to attack the hair follicles – causing hair to fall out. In alopecia universalis, all hair falls out, including eyelashes, eyebrows and even hair on the arms. No-one really knows what causes alopecia and it differs from patient to patient, but often is a result of stress.

Certain fungal infections are also known to cause hair loss, as well as certain nutritional deficiencies – especially if you’re iron deficient as this is one of the building blocks for healthy hair and nails. Compulsive hair pulling, known as trichotillomania, can also cause hair loss, but this is a complex psychiatric disorder and may take some time to diagnose.

How Can I Prevent Hair Loss?

If your hair loss is hereditary, unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do to prevent hair loss. Generally, keeping up a clean hair regime, not brushing hair too frequently, not using heated appliances and avoiding harsh chemical treatments should help to prevent hair loss to an extent, but if it is hereditary, it will happen eventually.

If your hair loss is associated with the use of chemicals, in general, as soon as you cease using these chemicals and give the hair opportunity to grow naturally, hair loss will stop. If you’re using dyes and bleaches on your hair, go to a hairdresser and get them to completely strip the hair of all dyes and colors – as a bonus, this will also strip out any treatments. This initial step might well cause more hair loss but it’ll get you back to an even ledge, so to speak. From here, your hair will be almost back to normal and you can then start to nourish it and look after it accordingly. Don’t use any colors or bleach on your hair and stay away from chemical treatments and within about 6 months, you should notice a definite improvement in the texture and thickness of hair.

As a general rule, anyone suffering from hair loss should not use heated appliances. Although they won’t damage hair follicles, they will damage hair and weaken it, causing split ends, frizz and locks that are unmanageable, especially if your hair is already dry. Heat protect products will go some way in protecting your hair but if you’re already experiencing hair loss, it’s definitely better to be safe than sorry. Instead, leave hair to dry naturally, not in a towel, and brush once dry. Brushing whilst wet could cause further damage. And if you must use hair straighteners? Never, ever use them whilst your hair is damp as this will split hair.

How to Treat Hair Loss

Treating hair loss is actually far easier if you have female pattern baldness as there is a wide variety of treatments on the market. Minoxidil 2% is the only licensed product for women, although some use Minoxidil 5% for men with good results – however, the 5% application could cause an increase in facial hair as well as hair on the scalp.

Another alternative treatment is a laser comb. The laser stimulates the scalp, encouraging hair growth. Although it is not as effective as minoxidil, certain studies have found that up to 50% of those treated with it saw an improvement in hair growth and texture.

Some women can also be treated very simply with iron supplements or oral contraceptive pills if they have a hormone imbalance. Those undergoing chemotherapy don’t need to be treated as usually hair starts to grow back as soon as treatment ceases.

Finally, those with compulsive pulling disorders can be treated, and usually fairly successfully, with therapy. Because trichotillomania is a fairly complex disorder, the underlying reasons for the hair pulling will need to be identified before treatment can begin and this can take some time.

Top Tips for Preventing Acne

  • Posted on August 29, 2013 at 10:42 am

Acne can be tough to get rid of, but there are a number of things that you can do to prevent it from developing in the first place.Take a look at our top tips for preventing acne below to learn how to keep your face clean and blemish-free.

  • Keep Your Face Clean. Sounds obvious, but keeping your face clean is the first step in preventing acne. Wash your skin twice a day with a gentle cleanser and warm water. Make sure you use a cleanser that is specifically designed for your face as cleansers designed for your body can have a drying effect. If you have acne, avoid using products with coarse textures on your skin, but if you want to prevent it, it’s a good idea to use a gentle facial scrub a few times a week to really scrub out dead skin cells. Use clean towels everyday too, as dirty towels can cause bacterial problems.
  • Moisturize. People with acne, or those with oily or problem skin, are often a little bit wary of using moisturizer as they feel like it’ll make their skin dirtier or oilier. This isn’t true – look for gentle moisturizers with “noncomedogenic” on the label as this means that they are suitable for those with problem skin. Replenishing your skin’s moisture is a really important step in keeping your skin clean and clear.
  • Use Makeup Sparingly and Choose Mineral Products. Mineral makeup products are organic and lightweight, meaning that they should hopefully not clog up your pores, keeping your skin clear. Although it can be tempting to throw on makeup when you have a breakout or when you’re feeling self-conscious about your skin, using too much makeup will make things worse and your skin will really suffer for it. Use makeup as sparingly as you can and you should see your skin improve.
  • Think About What You Use on Your Hair, Too. This might sound a little bit odd, but it’s a good idea for you to think about what you use on your hair, too, especially if it hangs around your face. You should use gentle, non-cloying products on your hair – keep in mind that anything you use on your hair could end up clogging up the pores on your face. Oily hair can make your face oily too so wash it frequently with a deep cleansing shampoo and conditioner. You should also keep your hair pulled back from your face, particularly if it’s very long. Use plaits and ponytails to stay stylish.
  • Stop Touching Your Face! Many people with skin complaints have a habit of picking at and touching their face. This does nothing but spread the bacteria from your breakout around your face, causing new spots. Picking at and touching your face could also inflame your skin, particularly if you have any spots that are open or weeping. Don’t pick at or pop your spots with your fingers and if you must touch your face, wash your hands thoroughly and dry them with a clean towel before touching your face again to prevent the spread of bacteria.

How to Get Rid of Acne Overnight: 6 Treatments That Work

  • Posted on August 6, 2013 at 2:11 pm

Acne is one of the worst enemies of girls, specially the teenage girls. They seem to attack their beautiful face, when they are looking forward to attend an important function. Though it is extremely difficult to condemn these aggressors, but they are some effective natural ways whereby it is possible to get rid of pimples overnight. Here are six proven ways to deal with acne and get rid of them overnight:

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is one of the best skin care products to deal with zits. This oil will penetrate deep down through the pores of the skin and its antibacterial properties will help in killing all the microbes that have caused the breakout. Moreover, it also helps in clearing the skin of excess oil called sebum which is one of the prime causes behind pimple formation.

Cold Compression

Ice cubes help in arresting the growth of pimples instantaneously. When we press ice cubes on areas attacked by zits, the temperature of that area goes beyond the freezing point. It helps to check the spread of infeacnection that has caused the zit and reduce the redness of the skin as well. Rub ice for about 10 minutes and thereafter apply benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid which helps in killing the microbes that caused acne and also removing the dead skin cells from your face.

Face Pack with Honey and Cinnamon Powder

Both these ingredients are easily available in your kitchen. So mix these two to form a paste and apply it on the affected area of your skin. Honey will help to reduce the swelling and redness of the skin as it has antiseptic properties, whereas cinnamon pack will help in removing the dead skill cells and rejuvenate your skin from within. Leave this pack on your face for at least ten minutes to get the best effect.

Apply Lemon or Vinegar

Lemon and Vinegar are acidic in nature and this property helps in cleaning the face off from all its dirt and oil which are the two main causes behind skin breakouts. So squeeze out some lemon juice and dab it on your face with the help of cotton. Leave the juice on your face for about 10 to 15 minutes and thereafter wash your face with cold water. But it is not advisable to use this procedure too often as our facial skin is too sensitive for the strong acids present in lemon or vinegar.

Apply Toothpaste Overnight

Toothpaste is also extremely effective for treating acne. All toothpastes contain silica which helps in absorbing the moisture and oils from our skin. So take a small pinch of toothpaste and apply it on the affected area overnight. Next day you will see that the pimple size has reduced considerably and it has dried out totally.

Green Tea Bags

Green tea is a natural astringent and it contains a lot of antioxidants as well. These characteristics of green tea help in dealing with pimple breakouts. Soak a tea bag in hot water and thereafter place it in the pimple affected area to get instantaneous result.

These are some of the most effective natural ways to deal with pimple breakouts and get rid of it overnight. Along with these natural treatments, you also need to use best skin care products to keep your skin clean, oil free and moisturized so as to stop the growth of microbes that cause skin breakouts. Last but not the least, eat healthy to stay healthy!!

Home Remedies for Dry Hair

  • Posted on June 11, 2013 at 2:50 pm

Oily hair can be a bit of a pain, but dry hair is never any fun. Dry hair tends to be dull, with little shine or gloss and it can also be fairly unmanageable, particularly when you use straighteners or curling irons. Dry hair often equals frizz and so styling, managing and maintaining your hair can be tricky. Luckily, there are a few home remedies that you can take advantage of to keep your locks looking strong, shiny and lustrous. Take a look at some of the tips below for ultra-shiny, ultra-glossy and ultra-manageable hair, but first, we’ll take a look at some of the most common causes of dry hair.

What Causes Dry Hair?

Some people have naturally dry hair, but others end up with dry hair because of a number of external factors, such as the environment, or internal factors, such as an illness. Chlorine from swimming pools can cause dry, brittle hair while hair dye and hair perms can also cause issues. Using external heat sources such as a hair dryer or hair straightener, exposure to heat and wind and shampooing too often, as well as using harsh shampoos can also cause dryness. Avoiding these environmental factors is the first step in getting strong and silky locks, although there are a number of home remedies that you can use to make your hair even softer.

Wash Your Hair Every 2-3 Days

This might sound a little strange – after all, most of us believe that washing our hair multiple times in a day = squeaky clean and healthy hair.  But that’s not true. Washing your hair multiple times in a day, or even every day, can actually strip the naturally occurring oils from your hair, leaving your hair lank and lifeless. Washing your hair too infrequently will also cause a build-up of oils in the hair, leaving hair greasy. Every 2-3 days is just about the right amount – not too much and not too little.

Be Gentle

If you regularly find yourself twirling your hair around your fingers or snapping off split ends, our advice to you is to stop messing with it! Be gentle with your hair – that includes using soft bristle brushes or brushes made with natural fibers and using natural or organic shampoos and conditioners. Quit twirling your hair around your fingers, too!

Use Conditioner

Sounds obvious, but many gals skip the conditioner, just because it shaves a little time off of their beauty routine. If you have dry hair, you desperately need to condition it every time you wash your hair. Use a conditioner with a really low alcohol content – the higher the alcohol content, the more drying the conditioner will be. Generally, if the conditioner is fragrance-free, it’ll have a fairly low alcohol content. If your hair is really dry, use an overnight conditioner – just slather it onto your hair, cover hair with a shower cap and wash it out in the morning.

Embrace Oils

Hair oils are the new buzzword in hair and beauty and with little surprise – they can turn even the lankest and dullest of locks into soft, fluffy and beautiful hair with just two drops. Look for nourishing hair oils and apply them to the mid-lengths to the tips only – applying them to the roots of your hair will just make your hair really greasy. You can either apply hair oils whilst your hair is damp as a blow-drying aid, or when your hair is completely dry as a finishing touch. If your hair is still dry at the roots, think about mixing a little hair oil into your shampoo.

If you don’t want to use a chemical hair oil, mix together a little natural coconut oil, hazelnut oil, avocado oil and virgin olive oil in a saucepan. Heat until just warm – not scalding – and spread over the mid-lengths to tips of hair. Wrap with a towel, remove and then wash out using a gentle shampoo. Use this treatment just once a week and avoid the scalp as much as you possibly can – these types of oils can leave hair greasy at the roots, even after multiple washes, so take real care to massage in the oil from the mid-lengths to tips only.

Pace Your Hair Treatments

Women love to have shiny, glossy, colored hair – and we put up with a multitude of different hair treatments to get the perfect glossy mane, such as hair dye, highlights, perms and straightening treatments.  If you must put your hair through all that damage, pace your hair treatments out over the course of at least a few months, rather than a few days to avoid damaging your hair too much at once.

Add Vinegar

Vinegar is a really simple way to improve shine and prevent dryness – and you can use it in literally hundreds of ways. Massage it onto the scalp before shampooing to prevent a dry scalp, rinse hair after washing or mix a little vinegar into your shampoo to improve hair texture.

Egg it Up

Eggs are a surprisingly good way to nourish moisture-starved locks – but you have to be careful when washing them out so that you don’t wind up with poached egg on top of your head. You can mix eggs with a little oil and vinegar to use as a pre-shampooing treatment, or you can simply massage eggs right through the lengths of your hair before washing out. Wash out any eggy treatments at a low temperature – too high a temperature will result in straggly bits of poached eggs throughout your hair.

5 of the Best Summer Hair Care Tips

  • Posted on May 15, 2013 at 12:29 pm

Summer is right around the corner and now is the time to start nourishing your locks so that your hair looks soft, shiny and sleek. We all love a swim in the sea and lying in the sun, but the salt and the UV rays can play havoc with your hair fibers, leaving your hair dry, frazzled and full of split ends. Follow the tips below to keep your locks healthy, bouncy and full of shine – whatever the weather.


Use a UV Spray

We’re all so used to protecting our face and skin with sun cream that we completely forget to take care of our hair – but the truth is, UV rays can damage your hair just as much as they can damage your skin. Mist your hair lightly with a UV protecting spray before you go out into the sun and massage some through the ends as a leave-in conditioner.

Try a Sulphate-Free Shampoo

Sulphates can dry out your hair and damage your scalp, and if your hair is already damaged from the sun, it’s important that you nourish your hair with sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner. Sulphate-free shampoos are much more gentle than regular shampoos and will cleanse your hair and scalp without drying them out. Finish with a gentle sulphate-free conditioner, too, for the best results.

Let Your Hair Dry Naturally

If it’s hot out, you don’t need to use artificial heat to dry your hair – it will just cause further damage. Embrace the warmer weather and let your hair dry naturally into a beachy style. If you have long hair, scrunch hair every few minutes to create beachy-looking waves. If you have shorter hair, tuck it behind your ears and comb flat for a face-flattering look. When hair is about 50% dry, put a drop or two of nourishing hair oil onto the palm of your hand, rub between your palms and smooth over the ends to mid-lengths of hair. The oil will keep your style sleek and should smooth down any frizz.

Trim It

Get hair trimmed before summer, or before your holidays, to get rid of any existing split ends and to encourage hair growth. Throughout the summer months, your hair might need to be trimmed every 4-6 weeks instead of every 6-8 weeks as you might get more split ends.

Protect Your Color

Strong sunlight and chlorine can strip the color from your hair. Protect it by using a color-protective shampoo and conditioner, or by using hair products that are specifically designed for use when swimming. Use a color-protecting hair mask at least once a week. Massage into the hair from roots to tips, wrap your hair in a towel and leave for at least 30 minutes before washing out. Washing your hair too frequently also makes it more likely that your color will fade, so try not to wash your hair everyday – every other day will be just fine.

Finally, it’s important that you drink lots of water. This will not only keep your skin hydrated, but it will ensure that your scalp and hair stay hydrated, promoting healthy hair growth and reducing the likelihood that you’ll get split ends. Not drinking enough water could leave your hair follicles stunted and may even slow down growth – so make sure that you get your 8 glasses a day.

5 Steps to Getting Healthy, Strong Hair at Home

  • Posted on April 11, 2013 at 1:23 pm

Stuck with split ends? Fed up of your frizz? Bored with your bob? You don’t have to be stuck with hair that is flat, dull and weak – get fabulously healthy, strong hair at home with products that you can find in your kitchen cupboard. Your hair will thank you for it, we promise! Take a look at the steps below for some advice.


Chop it Off!

Many guys and gals with long locks are extremely reluctant to make the chop. They don’t want to trim their hair for fear of losing the length, and this can lead to dry, damaged and weak hair that is chock a block with split ends. Get regular trims at least every 6 weeks – you only need to have about half an inch off of the ends to make your hair stronger and healthier. Most salons will trim your fringe for free, especially if you’ve already had your hair cut with them, and many will be happy to give you a discount on your maintenance cut if you book it advance.


Raid Your Fridge

Many products that you can find in your fridge will create deliciously-scented hair masks that will restore hair, improving strength and preventing further damage – so raid your fridge!

  • Banana and avocado mask: 1 banana, 1 egg, ½ mashed avocado, 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, 3 tbsp. runny honey, 3 tbsp. buttermilk. Mash the banana and avocado together and whisk in the egg. Whisk together oil, honey and buttermilk and add to the banana mix, then apply from the roots to tips of dry hair. Leave for 30 minutes, then wash out. Repeat twice a month.
  • Yoghurt and egg white mask: 1 large egg white, 4 tbsp. natural yoghurt, 2 tbsp. runny honey and 2 tbsp. coconut oil. Whisk the egg white until frothy. Gradually whisk in the yoghurt, honey and oil. Massage from the roots to tips of hair, leave to sit for 30 minutes and then wash out. Rinse with cold water for extra shine. Repeat once a month.


Bin the Heat

Heating products like straighteners and curling irons will damage the hair, causing dryness and damage. And if you use them every single day, your hair will be weak, cracked and damaged. You’ll also notice flyaways and frizz – so banish the heating products and if you absolutely must use them, use some decent heat defence products and sprays and think about incorporating a heat defense shampoo or conditioner into your routine.


Cancel the Color

Many women dye their hair up to 6-8 times a year. All of those heavy-duty chemicals will play havoc with your natural hair fibers, and although the conditioning treatments that come with the hair dye can make your hair feel soft and supple, repeated dying will cause dryness and damage. Cancel the color by using a treatment to strip your hair of the dye, or let it grow out naturally. If you want to change the color of your hair, opt for plant-based or henna-based dyes or a completely natural semi-permanent hair color. And if you must get highlights or a beautiful blonde mane? Invest in some color protecting haircare.


Massage Your Scalp

Massaging your scalp will stimulate the production of oils on the scalp and this will improve the texture of your hair, particularly if your scalp is very dry. Massage the hair and massage the products that you’re using into the strands so that they get right into the heart of the hair fiber.


Above all, take good care of your locks by drinking plenty of water and by eating the right foods. A diet full of processed foods will make hair dull, while a diet rich in fruit and veg will add luster and shine.
