Hair Care

People have a tendency to believe in myths they wish were true. This leads to spreading of many false facts and fake advice.


Before the digital revolution, these Grandma’s myths were spread through word of mouth, but now, thanks to convenient sharing on social media platforms, the myth spreading goes on steroids.


We see a interesting post on Facebook and we share it, we forward messages without fact checking (Who doesn’t?)


So it’s always a good idea to fact check a piece of information before believing it.  


Following are the 10 Common hair related myths people believe are true.


1. Trimming your hair will make it grow faster

Hair grows the same amount every month whether you cut it or not. Cutting or trimming won’t affect the speed at which they grow.


Your hormones are the only thing that affect your hair growth speed.


Although, there is a benefit of regular trimming. It gets rid of split ends, making your hair look better.


2. Switching between different shampoos is better for hair

For most people it seem like their hair grows used to a new shampoo only a few days after they start using it. “At first it was working great but now it doesn’t feel the same” They say.


Turns out, Hair can’t tell the difference between brands nor can it build tolerance to a particular shampoo.


According to the experts a shampoo will work the same every time you use it.


You should change your shampoo, but not randomly. Change it according to seasons. The shampoo which works well in summer might be ineffective during the rain.  



3. Pluck out a gray hair and two will replace it

It’s a myth. Plucking out a gray hair won’t make two grow. But don’t pluck out your gray hair. Doing so could damage the roots and even leave a scar behind.


Graying of hair is natural and nothing to be ashamed about. If it’s really bothering you, just use hair color. These days they are harmless and pretty easy to use.

4. Coloring your hair badly damages it

While using lots of products will do damage, most of today’s branded hair products are designed to be harmless.


Coloring your hair won’t make you go bald, so make your hair blue or pink or whatever color you wish. Just make sure you buy products of trusted brands.  


5. Brushing your hair a lot will make it grow


On the contrary brushing too much leads to significant weakening and damage to the hair. While we wouldn’t recommend throwing your hair brush away yet, just don’t use it too much.


If you stop brushing altogether, knots and tangles may build up in your hair. You have to slowly and carefully untangle with your fingers. If you don’t want the knots to form, just brush your hair every other day for a short time.


Tip: When brushing, don’t start from root to tip instead start from tip to root. This will prevent the hair pulling that are caused when you start from root to tip.


6. Men with more testosterone go bald


Have high testosterone? Don’t worry. You are not doomed to go bald.


Testosterone isn’t the reason people go bald, instead it’s the sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone that causes the body to lose hair.


What determines the sensitivity? Genetics.


Conclusion: Don’t believe everything you hear about hair loss.


7. Wearing a hat or cap will make you go bald


Caps are cool. If you like wearing caps and it makes you look badass, don’t let this myth stop you from doing it.


Although they won’t make you lose hair, wearing a cap too tightly can pull the hair, eventually causing damage.


So if you want to wear caps, do it, wear them wherever and whenever you wish, but never too tight.


8. Stress is making you go bald

Despite of what you’ve been always told, stress doesn’t cause baldness.


Yes, chronic stress  will make your hair fall out, because your body stops growing hair and focuses on fixing whatever is causing the stress, but the hair will grow back once the stress is gone, and doesn’t cause male pattern baldness.


Although it’s not making you go bald you should still prevent it as much as you can.Mental stress can have harmful effects on your health.


Do whatever it takes to avoid stress. If your job is too stressful, find a new one. If you’re not happy in a relationship, get out of it. 🙂


9. Masturbating will make you bald

This originated when masturbation was extremely frowned upon and so those who wanted people to stop touching themselves in naughty places spread myths like, “It makes you go blind,” and “It makes you go bald,” “You will go to hell if you beat wood.”


These are, of course, all lies. So relax and go have some fun. It won’t make you go bald.


10. There is no cure for Baldness

While it is true that once your hair follicle is dead it won’t grow any hair, there are things you can do.


There are drugs that help recover lost hair, but whether they will work for you or not depends on the cause of the hair loss. Hair can be recovered with medication if you’re in your early twenties.


If the hair loss is permanent the only way to treat baldness is a hair transplant.




Hair Care

Your hair is precious to you. You buy expensive hair care products and spend hours reading blogs about hair care. But all that is pointless if you are unaware about the everyday things you do that seem harmless but are destroying your hair.


To solve any problem, you must first know the root cause of it. Treating something without knowing the cause is like aiming arrows at the sky, at night, hoping to hit a bird. You might get lucky but the chances are very less.


Following are the most common hair care mistakes people unknowingly make. If you are making them yourself, stop now.

1. Exposing your hair to heat

Heat is the most damaging element to hair. Hot water, blow dryer, and hair straighteners hurt your hair. You should avoid exposing your hair to heat.


Don’t wash your hair with hot water.


Avoid blow dryers, curling irons and hair straighteners too. But, in case you can’t live without them, use heat protection products to save your hair from heat damage. We recommend L’oreal Paris Advanced Heatspray 3 Sleek 450 Degree Protection. It will prevent the damage.

2. Exposure to Sun

The harmful UV rays from the sun can easily cause irreversible damage to your hair. Also, the heat doesn’t help. And while some exposure to the sun is essential for good health (20 minutes everyday), you should try to get it from 10am to 1pm. After that the sunlight is too harsh and damaging.


If you are going out in the sun after 2pm, just carry an umbrella or wear a hat. Simple.


And if you can’t for some reason, may be you’re in sports and have to practice in the sun, use UV protection products. We recommend Global Keratin GK Hair UV/UVA Shield Protection Conditioner.



3. Using Hair Products Incorrectly

With all the pollution and harmful things that our hair is exposed to, we need to use hair products to protect our hair from damage. But using them the right way according to your hair type is as important.


Using too many hair products will cause build up and lead to heavy hair.


Following are some mistakes that you may be making:


  1. a) Not using hair oil: While too much oil can make your hair look greasy, using the right amount will improve hair health and even make your hair look better. Don’t believe me? Just try it.


Our ancestors have always been using hair oils to keep their hair healthy. Hair oil stimulates growth and even prevents dandruff.


  1. b) Choosing a product that’s not for your hair type


Thinking that what works for someone else’s hair will also work for yours is a mistake. Everyone’s hair is different, some have fine, some have coarse hair. If you have fine hair and you use a product meant for coarse hair will be too harsh. If you have coarse hair, the product meant for fine hair won’t be as effective.


To prevent this, always check the labels for strength, moisture level etc.


If you don’t know what your hair type is, here’s a guide to find out.


  1. c) Not using the right amount


While too much of it will weigh your hair down, use too less and you are not getting the benefits.


The rule of thumb: You will never need any more than the size of a 50 paisa coin (If you still remember it).


Also, make sure that you rub the product between your palms before applying. It helps to spread it evenly.



4. Tying them tightly

This one is for women, and some men with long hair. Don’t tie your hair too tightly. In fact, avoid tying all together.


The headbands can grip the hair too tightly causing fraying and breakage.


If you do this often enough, the constant tugging will cause the roots to shift closer to the scalp, making them weaker and causing hair fall.


You can tie it once in awhile but regularly doing it will cause irreversible damage.




5. Poor diet: Not Eating food that you need

You have to take care of your body for it to function properly. That means exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy and proper diet.


This is important for healthy hair. If something goes wrong in your body, say it doesn’t get enough necessary nutrition, it focuses all the available resources on the processes that are essential for survival. And the rest, the lack of which won’t kill you, go out first.


Losing hair will cause you a lot of emotional stress but it won’t kill you, as far as survival is concerned, you don’t need hair to survive.


Thing like protein deficiency will cause the body to slow down or shut down hair growth.


The basic recommendation for protein intake is 0.8 grams per KG of bodyweight. That means a person who weighs 55 Kg will need 44 grams of protein per day and a person who weighs 70 Kg will need 56 grams of protein.


Make sure that you get enough protein everyday. Some good sources of proteins are eggs, fish, meat, peanuts, and milk.


Vitamin B deficiency can also cause hair loss.

6: Not washing your hair enough

How often do you wash your hair? Once, twice, thrice a week?


The recommended is three times a week with a good shampoo. Hair is exposed to dirt, chemical and many harmful substances throughout the day and they must be washed off before they can do any damage.


Having said that, don’t wash your hair too often either. It will cause it to lose the natural oils which are good for the hair.


There are exceptions to this rule. Say you are in sports and everyday after practice you’re drenched in sweat, you should wash your hair and clean off the sweat. In this case not washing everyday will do more harm than good.



7. Rubbing with a towel


Don’t rub your hair with a towel. Rubbing roughs up the hair shaft causing damage to your roots.


In case you’ve been doing this for a while, don’t worry, you can recover the damage.


Choose a shampoo and conditioner that is formulated for your hair. Like we discussed before, different hair need different products. This will recover the damage and heal your roots gradually.


Then get a microfiber towel, which is soft and has a harmless texture. The regular towels have a coarse texture which is damaging. With the microfiber towel, gently blot and squeeze your hair dry instead of rubbing.


If you’re worried about getting a cold if you leave the hair a little wet, don’t worry. It’s a myth. Just make sure you don’t leave too much water and go through a sudden change in temperature. Like walking into a air conditioned room.



Hair is precious. It is important to our identity and self esteem, don’t take hair for granted. Take proper care and keep your hair healthy.



Hair Care

If you suffer from thinning hair or baldness, like millions of people all over the world, you’re familiar with the harmful psychological effects it can have on you. The stress, the feeling of being judged, the low self esteem and the deep insecurities about your looks.


All this can make one’s life miserable. We constantly try to pursue happiness while ignoring the things that get into the way.

Why is this when there are so many options? You can can get professional help; Get a consultation with a hair care expert to check whether the hair loss is permanent or if medication will help. And if it is indeed permanent, then you’ve got a solution called hair transplant too.

Obviously, if you want to, you can come up with many excuses such as, “Hair Transplant is not safe”, “Hair transplant is costly”, “There are other ways to grow hair back.”


All of these are misconceptions and will not help you deal with your problems. If you have any doubts about safety or cost of the treatment you can always consult a doctor.


We can arrange a consultation for you. Free of Charge. And be assured, you’ll get only the best advice from our trusted doctors.


If you’re still not convinced, here are the seven reasons why getting back those lost hair will change your life:


1. You will look and feel better

After you have your hair back, you’ll naturally feel better about yourself. Everytime you look into the mirror, you won’t feel as if anything was missing.


Hairshapes your face and is an important part of your appearance. While some people can rock the bald head look, most can’t. They look older than they actually are.


By getting your hair back, you will look younger, you will feel younger, more energetic and  confident. This will reflect in your behaviour. People will be more responsive to you. They will start taking you seriously.


2. You will be more confident

The biggest damage that hair loss does is not to your scalp, but to your self esteem. People who start losing hair at a young age often lose their confidence too. They avoid social situations, settle for less attractive partners, and overall have a low self image about themselves.


Confidence is one of the most important factors that affects our success in all walks of life.


This means that hair loss could literally prevent you from being successful.


Getting your hair back will help get your lost confidence back and it will change everything in your life – your health, your love life, your social life and even your career.



3. You will be able to style your hair

We, humans, have an essential need for control, and mostly we have to suppress it. You have to take orders from your boss, you have to follow the rules and behave according to society’s rules.


Most of us compensate by getting control over something we can. Hairystyle. We can get it cut the way we want, color it, style it the way that expresses us best.


Having this control over our hair helps us manage the chaos that face every day in life.


Baldness takes that away from us. Without it we fall back into the stressful, chaotic life that overwhelms us.


Getting your hair back will allow you style your hair. You’ll be in control.  



4. People will think you are smarter

According to countless experiments and years of research, people tend to judge attractive people as more intelligent and competent than people whom they find less attractive.


Also a fact in psychology is that people who take effort to look good are perceived as more attractive by others. It’s not what you have, but what you do with what you have.


This means that people who take effort in looking good– with grooming, stylish clothes, good hairstyles, etc, will be perceived as better looking than others.


Now, imagine getting those beautiful hair back. You could style them to look better and make great first impressions.    


5. You’ll have more luck with dating

What do women find attractive in men? Lots of things contribute to this, but the most important one is confidence. The more confident you are, the better you feel about yourself, the more attractive you are to the opposite sex. This also applies to women. Men find confident women more attractive.


Having a head full of hair will help you get more confident about your looks and will make you more attractive to the opposite sex.


Also, always remember the “making efforts to look good” part. The efforts you put in are more important than having a pretty face.


Cleopatra, the most dangerously seductive woman in history, wasn’t the most beautiful woman in Greece. In fact, she was quite average looking, but she took extreme measures to look like a fantasy character that all men dreamed of possessing. She would dress up as goddesses, wear the most fashionable outfits that no one had seen before. Sometimes, she would even dress up in rare jewels.


You get what we’re trying to say, right? 😛

6. You will have more success in your career

People make
snap judgements about us based on how we look. Better looking people are perceived as being smarter and more competent.


This bias also affects how interviewers will judge your ability. You may be qualified for a job but the interviewer’s subconscious judgement will cost you the opportunity.


Better looking people are promoted faster than their less attractive counterparts.


If nothing else, think of the money you spend on the treatment as a smart investment.   


7. Your health will improve

Most people ignore the harmful effect of hair loss on a person’s psychology. This is dangerous because hair loss is a condition that millions of people all over the world suffer from.


It can lead to stress, exaggerated feelings of ugliness and even depression.


Depression can cause many health problems which can eventually shorten your lifespan.


If hair loss is affecting the quality of your life, it’s worth the effort to get professional help. Either consult a therapist who will help you cope with it or tackle the problem to the roots and get a hair loss treatment done.



If you have any doubts about hair loss treatment or hair transplant you can get a free consultation here. We will arrange it for you with a trusted and well qualified doctor.

Rajesh finds a match on Tinder. A beautiful twenty five year old medical student with cute dimples and blue eyes. The chatting began with a simple “Hi”, and followed by interesting, deep conversations that lasted for hours.

She loved reading, traveling and was a A. R. Rehman fan. It was as if Tinder had found Rajesh his soulmate.

She was perfect for him in every way, like the girl in your day dreams you imagine finding and spending your life with, but despite the connection and all the long conversation, Rajesh never asked her out on a date.

He wanted to but he didn’t. He understood that she was expecting him to ask, and thought she’d judge him for not doing it. The texts got less frequent, the conversations became shorter and shorter and eventually they stopped talking.

Rajesh never asked her out because he was worried.

Worried about being judged. Worried about being rejected. Worried that he was not the same guy that was in his profile picture that he uploaded of two years before.

That she’d see him and notice the hair he had lost since that picture was taken and declare him a fraud.

Hair loss and baldness are things we often ignore as being harmless, but only those who suffer from it will understand how devastating realizing that you are going bald is.

People like Rajesh are suffering silently and missing out on great opportunities because they have developed low self esteem and believe people will judge them because of their looks.

Just look at the example of celebrity hair stylist James Brown. He started losing hair in his twenties and suffered another twenty years before seeking professional help.

He always wore hats, which became his signature style, but he didn’t wear hats as a fashion choice but to cover his bald spot.

This solution is simple enough for anyone conscious about their baldness but in case of Mr. Brown the problem was much worse. He couldn’t take off his hat. Even at the airports, he would get very anxious about taking off his hat.

It got to the point when it was so bad, I didn’t want to take my hat off. Those minutes before going through security and taking my hat off, they were torture for me he said.

Mental problems when left untreated get worse. In India where mention of mental illness is frowned upon, people are reluctant to get professional help because of the fear of getting judged.

AIB : If People Treated Other Illnesses Like They Treat Depression


Hair loss is not just a vanity problem and it’s certainly not harmless. A major study about the negative psychological effects of hair loss has revealed that hair loss can trigger serious psychological breakdown.


It could lead to exaggerated feelings of ugliness and even trigger body dysmorphic disorder.


For most people, hair loss leads to low self-confidence and affects their quality of life. They go out less to avoid social situations, they get nervous about asking out attractive people.


The world is obsessed with hair – How important are they really?

Hair are important. They have been since ancient times. For Greeks, elaborate wigs were a sign of status and wealth. Attractive hair have been always valued in different cultures around the world.


The masters shaved off the heads of their slaves as a gesture of dominance.


Hair have always been associated with power and strength.


The face is the most important feature when in comes to first impressions. It also plays an important role when it comes to attraction between people.


Hair frames the face and hence plays a major part in appearance. People spend thousands on hair care & styling products.


All of this because looks matter. How attractive we think we look strongly affects our self esteem and confidence.


This is when hair come into play. We have the freedom to style it the way we want, it gives us a sense of control. You can cut, color, highlight, and style it the way you want to. Losing hair makes us feel like we’re losing control and that can cause anxiety.


Doomed Love Life – Will hair fall make dating difficult?


What do women find attractive in a man? Turns out, it’s something you can control.


More than your God given looks, women care about how much effort you put into looking good. It’s not what you have but what you do with what you have. That’s why to improve your chances of finding a beautiful partner, put in some effort into grooming and style.


Also, confidence matters. A lot. The more confident you are the more attractive people will find you.


Ironically, if you are balding and that’s affecting your confidence it may make you less attractive. Not because you look bad, but because you feel like you do. This in turn hurts your self esteem even more, because you conclude that it’s the lack of hair that’s making you unappealing to women.


Women may be affected more by this. Women want to be desired and losing their hair will make them feel unattractive.


Same advice works for women. Don’t worry about what you can’t change and focus on improving what you already have. Men find women who put in effort into looking good very attractive. So, pay attention to your style and fashion.

Those eyes staring at you – Do people judge you for having less hair?


Cornell University psychologist Thomas Gilovich, Ph.D, did an experiment. He sent a group of newcomers to an undergraduate class wearing Barry Manilow t-shirts.


He later asked the students if they thought their classmates had noticed their clothing. They thought that half their peers had been silently snickering at them.


But in fact only about 23 percent of the students had even noticed the questionable choice of clothing.


The study, and many more similar ones, demonstrates that people have tendency to overestimate how often people notice not only how they look but also what they do.


This is called as the spotlight effect. It’s human nature. We all do it. The important thing is not to let it go too far. Not let it affect your life. If you pass up opportunities because you are afraid people will judge, you will miss out on great things in life.


The point is most people won’t even notice your bald spot. You’re exaggerating it in your mind. Those people you see staring at your head are probably lost in thoughts and don’t even realize where they’re looking.


Do people judge you because of your bald head? Some of them, yes. Those will be always there, but most people don’t. They are too busy with their own lives and problems.


The secret to happiness for bald people – Realize what’s important


First of all, realize that people don’t care about your baldness as much as you think they do. Your friends and loved ones like you and respect you for who you are and not how many hair you have on your head. Avoid those people who make you feel worse about your hair. If you don’t you will suffer.


Also, when it comes to attractiveness to the opposite sex, you have other features that they will find attractive so don’t let your hair hold you back.


It is always a great idea to get a professional hair stylist to find the best hairstyle that suits you.


Don’t worry about what you don’t have, but take what you already have and utilize it. In this case use whatever hair you have and find the best hairstyle that suits you.

You can also try hats or scarfs as long as they look fashionable and suit you. Consult a stylist.

If hair loss is causing you anxiety or signs of depression, you have to get professional help. Consult a therapist.

If hair loss is affecting the quality of your life, then it’s worth the effort and money to get help. Nothing is more important than your sanity.

If Rajesh had just gathered the courage and asked her out, may be she would have liked him. Rajesh will never know because he never did.

How will people fall in love with you if you don’t give them a chance to.

If hair transplant is an option for you, you can get a free consultation here. If a head full of hair is what takes for you to get your confidence back, we can get you there.

Note: Rajesh is not the real name of the subject. His details have been changed to protect his privacy


Hair Care


The thing that women find most attractive in a man is the effort he makes in looking good.

I’m not talking about good looks. Obviously, good looks help, but what’s more important is what you do with what you already have. How you dress, grooming, hygiene, all contribute to your attractiveness.

That’s not all. They say “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” but people do. Everyone does. At least at the first glance. Our brains are wired to make snap judgements about people within milliseconds. So how you look can have an impact on your career and social life.

And a bad haircut or hair problems can hold you back. Stop you from achieving your potential may that be in your career or love life.

You must know how to take care of your hair. Now sit back, relax and read this article. I have 7 hair care tips for you. Read them, remember them, write them down, or better bookmark this page, because you’re going to need to read it again.


Don’t use hot water to wash your hair

A hot shower will make you feel fresh and relaxed, but washing your hair with hot water will make you go bald. Hot water dehydrates strands and makes your hair dry. Dry hair is brittle hair, brittle hair is prone to falling out.

Your body naturally creates protective oils to keep your hair moisturised and healthy. The heat from the hot water makes the pores of your scalp produce too much of it, which damages the roots and causes hair loss.

Same goes for anything else that exposes your hair to heat, like hair dryer and exposure to harsh sunlight.

So keep your hair cold and healthy.

2) Avoid using too much hair product

You use hair gel or wax and mold them artfully to make latest style, but it’s always a good idea to use them in moderation. Sure, you want your hair to look great, but don’t get carried away.

With time the build up will make your hair weighed down which won’t look good.

How much is the right amount of hair product? Rule of thumb, if you think you’re using too much product, you probably are.


3)  Get a haircut regularly

Hair grow at the rate of half an inch per month. Long hair won’t hair loss, but if you don’t take proper care of those hair, problems will follow. So get it trimmed regularly, and if you have a trimmer you delay time between haircuts. Here is the link to the video that shows you how to trim your hair.

4) Don’t wash them too often

Do you wash your hair everyday? That’s bad. Wash your hair two to three times a week. Any more than that and you wash away the the natural protective oils that keep the hair healthy. Your hair will also lose the natural shine.

But there are exceptions of course. Say you’re an athlete who’s drenched in sweat by the time you hit the shower everyday. You’ll need to clean your hair. Not cleaning will do more damage in this case.

5) Wash them more often

For those of you who wash your hair less than three times a week, you need to do it more. All the dirt that accumulates on the scalp and the dandruff that forms must be regularly cleaned. Use good quality shampoo.


6) Reduce Stress

You probably know that stress causes hair loss. Stress is not great for your health either, so try to reduce stressing yourself too often. Being said that, I know it’s easier said than done, but it can be done. You’ll need to put in some efforts. Try Yoga, mindfulness meditation, make visual pro and cons lists. Those will help you make decisions easier. Avoid people who make you feel worse about yourself. Even friends who constantly criticize you. Those people are more harmful to your health than bad diet and lack of exercise, so avoid them. Be around optimistic people who encourage you.

7) Eat healthy food

Unhealthy food will not just make you fat, it’ll also ruin your health. By eating healthy food I mean you food which provides you with the nutrients your body needs.
Make sure you get all the vitamins that you need.

Hair is made up of protein, your muscles are made up of protein, so you need to consume enough protein for your body to function properly. For it to heal when you get injured, and for it to make hair. Consume at least 70 Gm of protein every day.
