Hair Loss has been a great issue for everybody nowadays. The reasons for hair loss are many. It might be pollution or overthinking, it could be stress or hormonal problems, but at the end of the day, all of these problems leave us with less hair for the next day. So given below are some tips that could be used to reduce or control hair loss. 

  1. Oil Your Hair: Oil gives nourishment to the hair. It clears the blockages of the pores in the scalp. Oil act as a lubricant for the hair. It helps to respire the scalp better way making the hair healthy and reduce the hair loss. Also oiling and massaging of the scalp regulates proper blood circulation enhancing the quality of the hair and reducing fall as the scalp doesn't get dry and removes dirt after the wash.

  2. Onion Juice: Onion extract is a home remedy. All you need to do is cut onions into pieces, grind them in a mixer grinder, take out the pulpy onion paste, and take out the juice out of it. The onion extract is then put in the hair as similar to the way of putting oil and leave it to dry. Onion extract prevents the scalp to be dried, passes on nutrition to the scalp for better growth of hair. The rich sulphur content onion has is really helpful for the hair growth and prevents hair loss instead makes hair thick, shiny and black as it repairs the hair follicles and the inflammations.

  3. Indian gooseberry (amla): The Indian gooseberry is a huge source of Vitamin C. Hair loss is due to lack of Vitamin C which is balanced by amla extract. It has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties which prevent hair loss in a larger scale. All you need to do is mix equal amount of amla pulp and lemon juice together. Massage the hair and scalp with the mixture and leave it overnight to dry and be absorbed. Wash it in the morning and keep your hair healthy and shiny.

  4. Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera contains nutrition that directly promotes hair growth. It has alkalizing properties that help the body to balance the pH of a person to the desired level and prevents the lack of any imbalance of pH in the body hence enhancing the regrowth of the hair. Regular use can also relieve scalp itching, reduce scalp redness and inflammation, add strength and lustre to hair, and alleviate dandruff. All you need to do is apply some aloe vera gel or juice on the scalp, leave to let it dry and then wash with lukewarm water. After 3-4 times of repetition of the same process, you can see a great change in the growth of hair.

  5. Get a head massage: Massaging your scalp for a few minutes daily will help stimulate circulation. Good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Circulation may be improved through massage by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base.

  6. Antioxidants: Apply warm green tea (two bags brewed in one cup of water) on your scalp and leave this mixture on for an hour and then rinse. Green tea contains antioxidants which prevent hair loss and boost hair growth.

  7. Practice meditation: Meditation relaxes the body and releases all the stress and tension of the body. Hair loss is also due to tension and stress. So when the body is in a state of peace and calmness and no impulsive behaviour then obviously slowly and steadily the hair loss would be reduced.

How do I have my mustache look separate from the beard?

You would have to let them both grow and not trim the beard and moustache around the areas of separation. As the beard and moustache begin to start growing, you would need to start twisting and pulling your moustache out and away from your beard as often as possible. The important thing here is to start correcting the position of your moustache hairs away fro the mouth. You can use a combination of oils, balms and fingers to help correct the positioning.

The best time to apply beard oil is right after a shower. This is because, after the shower, the pores in your skin would open up which would make it easier for your skin to absorb nutrients and moisturisers present in the beard oil. You need to remember to dry the before applying the beard oil in order to prevent water on the skin.
