Tea tree oil

 

Photo :.angels.

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree .It has antibacterial and anti fungal properties .Tea tree oil has a very important role in my daily regimen.I use it in multiple ways .I add two drops of it in everywhere imaginable. It is like my  ”do boondh zindagi ke”.

.1.Face pack

I do not have any specific ways to use , as i do not have any allergic reactions to tea tree oil . I add 2 drops of tea tree oil to every pack i make. Both d.i.y and  commercial ones .It just adds a dose of acne coverage for me.

2.MOISTURIZER

I have an extremely oily acne prone skin that tea tree oil found a place in almost everything i use on my skin.Like the one before i have added few drops of tea tree oil to the night cream i daily use.

3.Spot

On red and inflamed ones i use a drop directly , i use a cotton bud to apply it on spot. The action of tea tree oil for acne is comparable to Benzyl Peroxide . But tea tree oil is less irritating and more time taking compared to the later.

If you have intolerance to the strong tea tree oil , you can consider adding it to Aloevera gel

4.post -pop up

I usually do not pick or pop my pimples as it can need to nasty scarring and spread. But there are times where it becomes an emergency . If i have to pop a pimple , i will do in a very sterile way . After popping up ,i apply tea tree oil topically on the raw spot . It burns a bit but it can reduce the inflammation and it can reduce the infectivity  (chances of infecting other areas)

5.steam

I take 10 mins of steam twice a week for both beauty and medical benefits . I add two drops of tea tree oil to the steam . Being an antibacterial it helps with bronchitis and sinusitis as well.

6.HAIR OIL

I add two drops of tea tree oil to the oil before oiling my hair. It helps with itchiness and minor scalp infections ( Read other tips 4 Home remedies for Itchy scalp  ). It is extremely useful in rainy season. (Related …10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips )

7.for bathing water

I have a habit of adding essential oils to my bathing water . The aroma gives a nice feeling , plus tea tree oil helps with body odor and itchiness .

8.FOR MINOR CUTS

I am extremely prone to cuts and other minor injuries . If i can not get my hands on any antiseptic ,i will happily use tea tree oil ( i keep a bottle of it everywhere i go ). I also use this after threading my eyebrows .

 

Do not use tea tree oil , if you have extremely sensitive skin unless tested. Pubertal and prepubertal boys may experience some problems with it , as tea tree oil might have some harmonal effects .

6 HOME REMEDIES FOR HAIR FALL

Hello pretty friends !!! How was your weekend ? Mine had nothing in special. In the previous post I discussed about some important reasons for hair loss. Today I am coming with a handful of remedies.

1.INDIAN GOOSEBERRY.

Gooseberries

Gooseberry has very high amount of Vitamin C which is very useful when used systemically as well as locally.

  • Take 4-5 gooseberries & make them into pulp.
  • Add some lemon juice to it.
  • Apply that mixture to the scalp.
  • Use a shower cap to cover head
  • Keep it overnight.
  • Wash in the morning.
  • Do this once weekly

2. ONIONS

Red_onions

No matter how much you hate any dealing with onions , they are good on many ways. They have anti bacterial properties which help in scalp infections. They also increase circulation promoting good growth of hair.

  • Take a medium sized onion & grate it.
  • Strain it to extract juice .
  • Add spoonful each of alovera gel and olive oil to that juice.
  • Apply that to scalp .
  • Wait for an hour before washing off.
  • Instead you can simply cut onion into half ,then rub with it in on calp.

3. HIBISCUS.

hibiscus-72068_640

Is there anyone who have no idea that hibiscus in many ways for hair ? ??? My mom used to make hibiscus oil for me through out my childhood. It stopped only after I went to hostel.

  • Take 10 hibiscus flowers .( I used to steal them from neighbors)
  • Add them to two cups of your favorite oil. I prefer coconut oil.
  • Boil the mixture till the flowers become nasty black balls. ( there will be a peculiar oudor )
  • Use this regularly as overnight hair oil.

4.FENUGREEK/METHI

Methi not only reduces the hair fall ,it also makes hair smoother.

  • Take a half cup of methi seeds and soak them till they become soft .
  • Make paste of them or if you are as lazy as I am, you can happily buy methi powder and add that to water.
  • Apply this to the scalp & hair .
  • Stay for hour with that heavy head.
  • Wash off
  • You might need someone’s help for washing as it is very hard to  leave.

5.BEETROOT

beet-545775_640

  • Cut 1 or 2 beetroots and boil them in water till water becomes thick.
  • Add this liquid to henna to make a paste .
  • As usual apply this to scalp and wait for an hour
  • Go and start struggling in bathroom to get all the henna out of your hair.
  • Do I need to mention that henna is a natural conditioner and coloring agent.

6.COCONUT MILK.

Coconut is a kind of nature’s gift which can be used in a way you like to.

  • Grate coconut as you do for making chutney.
  • Strain it in cotton cloth .
  • You will get a white colored liquid which is known as coconut milk.
  • Apply this directly onto the scalp and hair.
  • Wait for half an hour before washing.
  • My advice is to wash it without shampoo ,it makes hair really lovable.

As there is no shampoo , don’t apply oil beforehand otherwise you end up with greasy hair.

Bye till next post beauties .

12 MOST IMPORTANT CAUSES FOR HAIR LOSS

Hair_loss_ad_(1904)

Hello pretty friends , I am back . Many people have requested me to write posts about many things but this is one of the most requested .So I decided to do a series of posts on it to get you some help. In the first post I am going to discuss the most common reasons for hair loss .

It is normal to lose 50-100 strands daily . Start hyperventilating only if you are losing handful of it .

1.TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM

Do not get scared I will explain you in simple words . It’s a post traumatic hair loss . This thing happens after a phase of an extremely stressful event like high grade fever , some surgery, pregnancy ,rapid weight loss . This may happen between 6 weeks – 3 months of stressful event .But by the end of 6-8 months it should stop . Otherwise        ” time to meet a doctor ”.

2 . EMOTIONAL STRESS

Unlike the physical stress emotional stress has less capacity to produce hair fall . but nonetheless it can. Divorce ,death of a dear one or extreme work can do many things .

3 .DEFICIENCIES

vitamins-26622_640

 

If you have deficiencies of protein , B complex & D vitamins , iron , Zinc  , you are prone to develop hair loss . Good thing is it is usually reversible .

4 .OVERFLOW Vit A

I know it I really annoying to know that vitamins can also cause hair loss . But then  ” too much of good can be bad”  sometimes. This condition is called hypervitaminosis of vitamin A.

5. MALE PATTERN BALDNESS

hair-248050_640

This begins as a receding hair line . This is the most common type seen in men .Genes & male harmones are main culprits .

6 .FEMALE PATTERN BALDNESS

The pattern mainly has thinning of entire scalp rather than hairline & temples as in men. It is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women.

7 . LACK OF HARMONY

Harmonal imbalances like hypothyroidism and PCOD can cause hair loss.. PCOD is distressful in which patient loses hair from scalp & starts growing it elsewhere in the body.

8 .MEDICATION

Medication like Beta blockers, anti depressants , some anti biotics, chemo therapeutic agents ( for cancers) & blood thinners can cause devastating hair loss.

9. ILL HEALTH

Diseases like anemia , some auto immune diseases like alopecia areata & lichen planus , lupus can produce hair loss.

10 . TRACTION ALOPECIA

doesn’t it sound like a really serious disease? In reality it is hair loss due to pulling the hair too much into braids & pony tails . Mechanism is simple ,you are just pulling the hair follicles out .

11 . HEAT

blow-dryer-311549_640

One thing is sun ,excessive sun exposure can make hair dull ,dry & break. Other thing is the heat styling . Excessive usage of driers ,straighteners ,curlers at high temperatures causes hair damage,

12. TRICHILLOMANIA.

Hair_pulling_stress

It is an impulsive hair pulling . Amount of hair loss is directly proportional to the amount of force applied . ( I remember a girl from hostel days . She one day sat in darkness with handfuls of hair in each hand. When we switched on the lights at dinner time , two girls fainted on seeing her).
