Hair Loss Remedies

Many adults suffer from hair loss at an early age. Men are more prone to it, but women as well can suffer hair loss. There are a variety of cures for men, but for women, not so much. There are however, a few tips that you can take to help slow down hair loss, if not prevent it from happening. Many of the methods are simple changes to your daily activities.

Remedies for Hair Loss

Diet

One of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent hair loss is to eat a well balanced diet. You need to be sure that you are getting enough protein, and you should get between three or more ounce sizes per day and can include fish or chicken. Getting the right amount of protein can help your cells make new hair when the old stuff falls out. Having a deficiency in iron can result in anemia which in turn causes hair loss. Taking a vitamin daily can also ensure that you are getting the right nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis which can pose many health benefits.

Shampooing Your Hair

When it comes to shampooing your hair, it’s important to be as gentle as you can. A lot of people think that by rubbing hard, this can help clean the hair. You should wash your hair as you would wash a baby’s hair. You should not wash your hair more than one time per day and when rubbing your scalp do it gently. Every three months you should switch to a different shampoo which can help prevent shedding. When you are done, allow your hair to dry naturally. Don’t use a hair dryer as it can cause your hair to get weak and break off. If you do need to use one, use it on the lowest setting possible.

Styling Your Hair

When it comes to styling your hair, you should always make sure that it is dry before it is styled. Combing through wet hair is not a good thing as it can stretch the hair and can also cause it to start to break over time. Teasing should not be done as this is one of the worst things to be done to your hair. This can lead to breaking and can eventually make your hair look less full and thin.

As far as hair loss goes, there really aren’t many natural methods that will help you to grow your hair again. There are nutrients as well as botanical things that will help your hair to become stronger, replenish nutrients that were lost and are adding to the hair loss issue, and can also help slow the process down. You should steer clear of any natural supplement that says it will give you a cure for growing new hair.

More than 90 percent of women in the world suffer from yeast infections at least once in their life. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of yeast or microscopic fungi. These fungi live on moist skin areas of the human body. There are many different things that can cause women to get yeast infections, and they can be rather painful and uncomfortable at the same time. It is important to eliminate all factors and to try to keep the area clean. Some yeast infections are worse than others, and each one varies from woman to woman.

What Causes a Yeast Infection?

Yeast infections can also be known as Candida albicans, which is seen in small numbers just as other bacteria types that are found in the vaginal area. At times, the bacteria can multiply fast and this will result in a full blown yeast infection. A change in the vaginal environment can be a major cause of a woman getting a yeast infection, but other factors can include condoms, sex, injury, or HIV. Other factors that seem to favor these infections include an increase in moisture, allergic reactions, hormone fluxes, and sugar levels that are elevated.

Symptoms of a Yeast Infection

Symptoms of a yeast infection can vary from woman to woman. These symptoms may vary based on the person’s general health or genetics. Most women don’t know what a chronic yeast infection is, let alone the damage it can do. Many women become so accustomed to their symptoms they think their symptoms are simply just part of growing older or part of their lives. Some symptoms include:

White cheesy discharge
the vagina and surrounding tissues as well may itch
may experience a burning sensation
painful urination
pain during sex

This will bring you instant relief and eliminate symptoms rather quickly.

Tea Tree Oil

You can pour a few drops of the Tea Tree Oil onto a tampon and insert it inside the vagina. This can bring you relief as well.

Garlic

If you have a non vaginal yeast infection, garlic paste can be applied directly on the area that you want to treat. This method can be used for other body parts as well.

Gentian Violet

This is one of the traditional remedies that are used to treat yeast infections. This can also be found in most pharmacies. The affected area needs to be swabbed twice a day with this and be sure to use it on a thick pad as it will stain.
