How have you all been ? So I got this generous contributory article by Manisha Gupta who is a freelance writer on a topic about hair-loss. She beautifully explains everything from the basics and it is a must read. Well the main idea is to explain the different causes of hairloss and prevention methods for it . Have a quick read :
“Prevent baldness or thinning hair by opting for safe hair fall treatments. Read on to find out more about effective hair loss remedies and overall healthcare.
Losing hair can be stressful, and the sight of thinning hair during your heydays can be a nightmare. Hair fall is a glaring problem that people face these days, and timely treatment is of utmost importance. It can occur due to various reasons, such as hectic work schedules, unhealthy lifestyle and bad food habits. It is normal to lose 50-100 strands of hair every day on an average. A person can lose 250 strands of hair after it is washed. The hair strands grow about half an inch per month. Approximately 90% of a person’s hair is in the growth phase at any given time, and another 10% will be in the dormant stage. The dormant hair falls out after 2-3 months. It can sometimes become difficult to find effective hair loss treatment and maintain a strict health regime. Hair fall prevention is the need of the hour, and it is crucial to first detect the symptoms in time.
You see a large chunk of hair on your pillow in the morning
You find more hair strands in the comb than usual
Hair line receding from the forehead or crown
The hair parting becomes wider and shows the scalp
Sudden thinning of hair after pregnancy or prolonged medical treatment
The following are the most common causes of hair fall:
• Health problems such as anemia, autoimmune diseases and thyroid disorders
• Scalp conditions
• Skin infections like psoriasis, dermatitis
• Hairstyles, hairsprays that cause scalp irritation and traction
• Prolonged medications
Maintain optimum fitness levels
With a number of health problems that can act as triggers for hair fall, it is necessary to keep health conditions under control. Bad nutrition, vitamin deficiencies and lack of protein can lead to hair problems. Lack of exercising or crash dieting can have negative effects on the body. Ensure proper nourishment and a stress-free life. Here is how to help the growth of hair follicles and use the best hair loss remedies:
Ensure proper nutrition by eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables each day
Include a lot of protein in the diet: fish, chicken, beans, nuts, cheese and low-fat dairy products
Consume adequate calories and support the immune system
Learn to manage stress and relax your mind for preventing hair loss
Get prompt treatment for infections, such as tinea capitis and other fungal problems that can affect the scalp
Be gentle with your hair
Most hair problems are directly related to your lifestyle and habits. Thinning hair and bald patches can be a result of damaged, brittle hair from over-styling. It is vital to avoid the use of hot styling tools, frequent shampooing, forceful or frequent brushing, and too many hair products that can lead to breakage and thinning hair. Here are a few tips to take care of your hair:
Avoid pulling or brushing your hair immediately after a hair wash. This is an effective hair fall prevention tip.
Avoid combing too vigorously.
Do not shampoo too frequently, especially when your hair is naturally dry.
Use heated styling tools like blow dryers, curling irons, and straightening irons occasionally.
Avoid perming, straightening and harsh chemical treatments that can cause hair fall.
Use a thick, wide-toothed comb for detangling your hair.
Avoid hairstyles that pull your hair and cause breakage. These include very tight ponytails and buns.
See a doctor for severe conditions
You need to speak with your doctor in case of any physical or emotional trauma. Whether it is post-pregnancy hormonal changes or medical treatments like chemotherapy, hair will not regrow on its own unless you take the required medications. If your hair seems to be thinner than usual or falling out in bunches, it is time to seek medical help.
Effective home remedies for hair loss
Juice of neem leaves: It is one of the most sought after herb that has strong medicinal properties.
Honey & Olive Oil: This mixture soothes the hair and can be applied every week for quick results.
Egg White & Curd: You can also add a tablespoon of shikakai to this mixture and give protein treatment to your hair.
Oil Massage: As cliché as this sounds, this technique promotes blood circulation and nourishes the scalp.
Whatever the causes, try to eliminate them, achieve a healthy lifestyle and then resort to these home remedies for hair fall. The above hair loss remedies will help you take proper care of your tresses and prevent hair fall problems.”

I am writing after a long gap and this time I have got a product which is a all natural Kohl pencil .So I ended up seeing this Ad on Facebook about a Kohl pencil which claims to be all natural and soft on eyes . Well you know I am skeptic about any product before I use them and see the result.
It was kind of Plum to sent me a sample of it and it was super kind of them to sent me a sharpener along with it <3
This is the package I got in exactly one day :D and I absolutely loved the package <3
Ok so I opened it and found a pretty Kohl pencil with a colourful sharpener inside <3
So here are few more picture :P can’t help it , Love the package so much <3
These are few close images of the kajal and the sharpener.
So the whole body is made of wood and the kohl tip is simple SMOOTH , I am not kidding that it glides like cream :D The tip is neither too sharp nor too blunt , it is just PERFECT!!!!
This pencil doesnt have any fragrance nor does it have the flaky texture that most pencils do . Also I tried blending it a bit and the result turned out well . The blending is even and it is extremely dark even in single stroke .
So , I tried with giving one stroke at first to three strokes in the last one . Surprisingly , the first one with just one stroke is as dark as the last one ( no the image is not edited). I guess it is a good bargain for people who love dark kohl beautified eyes <3
So , now about the sharpener . It is a dual sharpener for 6mm and 8mm pencil .This one is cute and extremely handy.
Advice : Never use the normal sharpener or blade for you Eye or Lip Pencils.
1. All Plum products are free from Parabens, Phthalates, Prop. Glycol & SLS.
2.The Kajal is extremely soft and glides well on the skin.
3. Intense black pigmentation.
4.Comes with free dual sharpener.
5. They work great as even a liner and a Kajal (Kohl).
6. Fairly blendable , so great for eye makeup.
7. The body is made of wood and not of plastic . Hence , bi0-degradable!!!!
1. It stays on for 4 to 5 hours and the smudges away , kind of fades away .
2. Availability and awareness of the product is less .
3. It is comparatively more expensive than other brands like Maybelline or Revlon which eventually makes them a budget buy.
Cost of the Kajal : INR 425/-
Cost of the Sharpener : INR 125/-
I tried it one me :D Turned out to be fine :)
Thanks for the Kajal again Plum, happy I reviewed this one of a kind product . Hoping to do more :)
