natural-shampoo

We often experience bad hair days, once or twice a week. And complain and whine about it in our pictures, on social media and more. Have you realised why?
Because your hair is one such element that adds to your facial beauty.

Did you know?

On an average span, women spend about 3 hours a week washing, blowdrying and styling their hair.

In order to have strong lustrous hair, it is essential to provide both, the scalp and the hair with good care which requires both oiling and shampoo & conditioning. Often in the older times, people would give more attention to only oiling of hair, saying it would help hair grow faster and make it dandruff and lice free. Although, this notion has been proven wrong according to research. It is now said, that washing your hair with shampoo and then conditioning it is as essential as oiling it.

With excess amounts of oil on the scalp, it results in the scalp sucking in more dirt and increasing the amounts of dandruff on the scalp thereby leading to itching and various related hair problems. Therefore, it is recommended to wash the hair with a good shampoo thoroughly after oiling the hair for a few hours. But, just picking up any shampoo and using it on the scalp can again degrade the quality of your scalp, in terms of increase in dandruff and lice, itching, hair loss, split ends, etc.

Nowadays, the market is flooded with different brands of shampoos promising to provide hair fall treatment, dandruff and other hair care routines which even hair spas cannot provide.

Eeeks, what on earth is that white, flaky stuff on your head & shoulders?!

Image

Having dandruff is not just a physical problem that needs to be treated patiently and carefully. It needs to be tackled in a larger sense, taking societal factors into consideration.

The Problems

What is the stigma attached to such a visible affliction? First off, you feel really, really embarrassed about Dandruff. There are so many who suffer from emotional symptoms when they realize that flakes of skin are affecting their social interactions? They try to cover up by –

• Wearing hats all the time to cover up dandruff

• Not wearing black clothes so the white flakes don’t show, even though they know black is a slimming color

• Continuously wiping the white flakes off, sneaking into the bathroom or another room to check their shoulders for any flakes

• Feeling very self-conscious at school, college, work or social occasions, and worried about body image and dandruff at the same time

• Wearing gloves to stop themselves from scratching their hair and making it flake even more, and then making it bleed

• Being worried about what other people might think about their personal hygiene

• Suffering embarrassing or misunderstood intimate moments with partner about how they have tried, but nothing seems to work

• Trying various commercial anti dandruff products in vain – some make it better or worse and most are expensive when you have to continuously have to use them.

What is Dandruff?

There are often two confusing aspects of what people see as white flaky bits, which are medically diagnosed dandruff and dry scalp. Dandruff can only be diagnosed by a doctor. Dry scalp is often treated by hairstylist.

There are a few major differences between dandruff and dry scalp. Dandruff is usually recognized by larger, greasy or waxy flakes or clusters of skin cells which are yellowish or grey. They may come off in your hair brush or stick to your hair or scalp, and are accompanied by itching. Dandruff, unlike dry scalp, is usually associated with a fungal or bacterial infection of the scalp and can be contagious.

If you have dandruff, you should not share brushes, combs, hats, towels, hair clips, or anything else that touches your head, and you should clean and disinfect brushes, etc. after each use. There are different types of dandruff and the type and cause can only be diagnosed by a medical professional.

In general, it takes around 2 weeks for the old skin cells to push their way to the surface of the scalp and replace themselves with new ones. Dandruff is caused when the skin cells flake off faster than the skin can cope with and then cause the skin cells to become inflamed with a fungus, causing them to become white and flaky in appearance.

How do you recognize Dandruff symptoms?

You may have some of these symptoms and are wondering what to do.

• Dry or oily scalp

• Yellowish, grayish, or white flaky skin cells on your clothes or bedding

• Itchy scalp

• Redness on scalp

• Inflammation on the scalp. It’s not always visible, but feels a bit raised up from the normal areas.

Who Can Get Dandruff?

Many people think that dandruff is just an old person’s hair condition. To tell you the truth dandruff affects every age, from toddlers (often called cradle cap) to teenagers to middle-aged adults.

Look out for this space, we shall explore ways of tackling this embarrassing affliction.

How To Take Care Of Your Skin In Winter

As winter approaches, our skin starts feeling dry and uncomfortable. We’ve all experienced it! But the elements don’t have to get the better of your skin. You can still maintain that beautiful, radiant complexion all season long. As the season changes, it’s time to change your skin care regimen and we are here to tell you just how!

1. Sun Protect

Don’t over look the sunscreen in winters. The sun is equally harmful in both the summers and the winters. This is one part of your skin care regimen that must not change.

2. Exfoliate

A good body scrub and facial exfoliant will help remove dead skin cells from your body, leave you feeling fresh and make your skin more receptive to moisturizer! Add this to your cleansing routine once a week.

3. Lukewarm Bath

Avoid long steaming hot showers which are tempting in the winters. They lead to dryness and moisture loss. Bathe with lukewarm water instead and follow up by applying a rich moisturizer or body oil immediately after the bath to retain moisture.

4. Moisturize!

The best time to moisturize is right after you shower because it will help seal in the moisture. Use a natural oil-based moisturizer for your face and a rich body butter for your body. It will help fight the excessive moisture loss which makes your skin flaky. Your elbows, knuckles and knees are dryness prone areas so lather on generously.

5. Happy Feet

For your feet, apply foot oil or cream at night and wear socks. This will ensure the moisturizer fully seeps into your skin, making it soft and well-hydrated by morning.

6. Go Mild

Use moisturizing face wash & mild cleanser. Try not to wash your face more than three times a day. Strong cleansers can strip off your skins natural oil and make it dry.

7. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Stays hydrated and drink loads of water. Eat fruits and vegetables that are packed with water, such as apples, celery and cucumbers. Herbal tea is also soothing when it’s really cold. Drink up and don’t let your skin go thirsty.

8. For Soft Lips

Protect your lips with a good-quality lip balm. Don’t lick your lips; this will only chap your lips more. Instead, keep the lip balm in your purse and apply whenever you like! Natural lip balms are non-toxic and do not contain any harmful chemicals, which is important because we always end up licking some, don’t we!

9. No Blow Drying

Give the blow drier a miss this season. Hot air dries the scalp & irritates the skin. Try the tousled look or the wavy style instead. And don’t forget to oil your hair before washing. This will give your hair the added moisture it needs and prevent it from looking rough.

Also, remember to invest in products which suit your skin and simply stay away from products that have sulphates, parabens and phtalates. We recommend using products made from all natural ingredients and which are absolutely chemical-free. Just avoid the dirty dozen when you buy any cosmetics! You are sure to notice a difference in your skin right away! Get set to bring on the new season and keep your skin happy!
