Hard Water – The culprit behind hair loss, really?

Are you tired of changing shampoos and buying expensive hair products to solve your hair loss problems? Are you tired of trying new hair treatments to get those beautiful luscious locks? Then maybe it’s time to check the water you use. Hair loss has become one of the most common problems for people all over the world. And yes, there may be several other reasons for premature hair loss. But, have you ever considered the quality of water you use to wash your hair each time? Hard water is one of the biggest reasons for hair fall today, especially in the urban areas.

What exactly is Hard Water?

Hard water is basically water with a high mineral content. These minerals mostly include Calcium and Magnesium in high amounts. They may also include Manganese or other multivalent cations which contribute to achieve a measure of hardness. Hard water generally occurs naturally when water percolates through calcium carbonates or magnesium carbonate, such as chalk or limestone. Although hard water is not a health risk when used for drinking, it causes a great deal of damage when used for hair.

Why is Hard Water harmful for your hair?

Hard water is rich in minerals and oxidizers which weaken your hair follicles. The minerals present in hard water are neither good for your hair, nor your scalp. They tend to weaken your hair making them dry and frizzy. Exposing your hair regularly to hard water can lead to thin and brittle hair, premature greying, dandruff problems, split ends and various hair loss issues.

Signs to identify if You have Hard Water

  1. Hard Water can leave spots on dishes, windows and other surfaces.
  2. It can cause certain skin irritations like eczema
  3. Hair can turn dry and appear dull when exposed to hard water.
  4. It can leave stains on porcelain.
  5. Soap doesn’t lather properly in hard water.
  6. The color of your clothing fades away in time when washed with hard water.
  7. Clothes look dirty or gringy after being washed in hard water.
  8. It’s deposits clog pipes and other appliances over time like dishwasher and clothes washer.

Effective Solutions for hair loss problems caused by Hard Water

1.Water Softener

A water softener is basically a mechanical appliance which is installed in your home’s water supply system. This appliance uses a process called ion exchange where it exchanges minerals for something else, in most cases, sodium. This removes the hardness from the water, making it soft water. Not only can soft water help you with your hair loss, but, it can also treat skin conditions like dryness and eczema.

2.Alum

You can add some alum to your bucket of water to make it soft. Alum contains unique properties which will allow the minerals to settle down for some time. This in turn prevents oxidization thus decreasing hair fall.

3.Clarifying Shampoo

Using a good clarifying shampoo can help you in dealing with hard water. Clarifying shampoo remove all the dirt and built up from the scalp making it squeaky clean. It also adds shine and volume to your tresses.

4.Olive Oil

Oiling has been one of the oldest and best solutions to all of our hair problems. Olive oil is known for being a natural conditioner for hair. It is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants which are really beneficial to the hair. Olive oil can be mixed with other organic oils like coconut oil or almond oil and massaged onto the scalp. This will provide the hair and scalp with the required proteins and nutrients, thus preventing hair loss. For best results, use Satthwa Premium Hair Oil regularly.

5.Shower Filter

Shower filters are the cheaper and rather temporary alternatives to water softeners. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes which fit directly onto your showerhead. These filters effectively remove the hardness of water and relieve you from your hair fall and dry skin problems.

6.Vinegar

Giving your hair a vinegar rinse can make your hair strong and shiny. For this purpose you’ll need one cup of apple cider vinegar and three cups of water. Rinse your hair with this solution regularly to add strength and luster to your hair.

7.Lemon

Rinsing your hair with lemon water regularly can help in removing any kind of residue built up from your scalp. Lemon helps in restoring the natural oil in the scalp which makes the hair strong and healthy. Atlernatively, you can also add lemon juice to your shampoo and wash your hair with it.

8.Eggs

Eggs are a great conditioner for dry and damaged hair. They contain a lot of proteins and vitamins which can make hair healthy and promote hair growth. To make an egg mask for your hair add 2 beaten eggs, a cup of curd and some almond oil to a bowl. Apply this mixture to your hair twice a week to get radiant, strong and thick hair.

Peppermint oil, a natural minoxidil alternative?

Minoxidil alternative… really?

We explored some of the benefits of peppermint essential oil in our previous article. In addition to all those benefits, PEO (peppermint essential oil) is a major problem-solver to all your hair growth problems, which is the focus of this article.

Uses and benefits for hair

• Peppermint essential oil is used in shampoos, skin creams, and other hair care products as it is known for it’s minty fragrance.
• Peppermint oil can also be used by adding it to any carrier oil, given its cooling effect, for relaxation.
• Peppermint essential oil, when applied to the hair, helps with dryness, itching, or other scalp problems.
• Naturally conditions your hair.
• It helps in eliminating dandruff and fight lice, given its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties.
• It stimulates hair growth and prevents thinning of hair. It’s a tested fact that Peppermint Essential Oil is the best one to use if you are suffering from severe hair loss. Let’s find out what makes it the most powerful.

Peppermint essential oil for hair regrowth

The major cause for hair loss is Iron deficiency. When you don’t have enough iron, your body can’t produce the hemoglobin in your blood. And since hemoglobin carries oxygen for the growth and repair of cells in your body, including the cells that stimulate hair growth, your hair starts shedding. PEO stimulates blood circulation. When blood is flowing, the nutrients from your body can feed your hair follicles more effectively. And as a result, you hair regrows.

Is Peppermint essential oil the best Minoxidil alternative?

Before going to the the details, let us know a little about Minoxidil. Minoxidil is known to be a popular FDA-approved (food and drug administration USA) drug used in hair loss treatments. It belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators. It comes as a topical lotion or foam. The mechanism of how Minoxidil works is not fully understood yet, several studies suggest that Minoxidil causes hyper polarisation of the cell membranes. That is, it widens the blood vessels that allow more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. As discussed earlier, this stimulates growth in hair cells. And as a result hair can regrow. So why should you use PEO and avoid Minoxidil

• According to a scientific study of the effects of PEO and Minoxidil on hair growth, conducted on male mice by Korean researchers in 2014, they concluded that PEO effectively stimulated hair growth in an animal model via several mechanisms and thus could be used as a therapeutic or preventive alternative medicine for hair loss in humans.

The conclusion came after they applied Minoxidil and PEO on two separate groups of mice for four weeks. As observed, hair growth was more prominent and rapid in the PEO group as compared to the Minoxidil group. Clearly, PEO was dominant.

minoxidil alternative

• Minoxidil is widely effective for treating hair loss caused by pattern baldness (a condition where your hair follicles get smaller and smaller over time. So, when the strands of your hair fall out, they’re not replaced with normal new hair, but instead by thinner, finer strands of hair) in males and females and not by any other condition. While PEO is an essential oil with no side effects that can treat hair loss caused by any condition.
• As a tested fact, Some women may experience facial hair growth when they use minoxidil. This might happen to men or women as side effect when highly concentrated minoxidil is used. While there is no such risk when using PEO.
• The growth is slow when using Minoxidil. Hair loss may seem to stop early, but growth can take around 8-9 months. While PEO works rapidly. You will observe better results in just a month.
• Minoxidil can cause irritation, flaking, and redness on your skin. While you can apply Peppermint essential oil anywhere on your skin for pain relief or relaxation.
• Minoxidil might not be easily available in the pharmacy stores. While PEO is easily accessible. You can make an easy purchase from any online store. It is also cheaper than Minoxidil.
• One of the major drawbacks of using Minoxidil is that many users have reported rapid hair loss once they stopped using minoxidil. This is not the case with PEO

Now that it is clear that peppermint oil can claim to be minoxidil alternative, especially without any negative effects. Let us show you, how you can make the hair growth oil using Peppermint and Jojoba Oil. Note: We are using jojoba oil because it is the closest to natural oil produced by us and it penetrates easily into the skin.. thereby making it one of the best carrier oil.

How to make Peppermint regrowth hair oil

• Add 7-10 drops of peppermint oil (Buy Peppermint oil) to one tablespoon of Jojoba oil (Buy Jojoba oil). This would be about 3-4% mix. Make sure that you thoroughly mix both oils.
• Apply the oil on your scalp and massage it with your fingers. If the tingling is too intense, add more of your carrier oil.
• You can leave the mix in your hair for about 1 hour or keep it overnight as well. Make sure to shampoo it out thoroughly. Apply 4-5 times a week for maximum effectiveness.

Safety Issues

• Don’t apply on children below the age of 3, given their extremely sensitive skin.
• Pregnant women should not apply it excessively.

What is Biotin & how it can help?

History of Biotin

Biotin IndiaThe word Biotin is derived from the Greek word “biotos” meaning life or sustenance. This Vitamin is found in egg yolks, liver and yeast, it was only in 1901 it was discovered that yeast requires a special growth factor which was named “Bios”. The discovery of Biotin occurred during an investigation of ‘egg white injury’ , which is a vitamin deficiency disease that is induced by feeding lab test rats an excess of raw egg white. During the tests, the lab test animals developed dermatitis, lost hair and also suffered from skin lesions and they were cured by heat stable factors found in yeast and liver.

In 1924 it was discovered that three factors were essential for the growth of microorganisms, they were BiosII, Vitamin H and Coenzyme R, they were same, a water soluble, sulfur containing vitamin Biotin, which was actually called Protective Factor X, Factor S, Factor W, or Vitamin Bw. Only in 1927 did they realise that mammals require water soluble vitamin Biotin. German scientists in 1931 Paul Gyorgy discovered Biotin in the liver and called it Vitamin H, as H represents the words “Haut und Haar” German words for “Skin and Hair”. 1932 saw the isolation of the vitamin from egg yolk, and in 1936 they christened the isolated substance as Biotin and it was recognized for the first time that egg white injury can be healed with Biotin supplements

The Benefits of Biotin, who needs it and why?

The deficiency of this vitamins usually occurs from an unbalanced diet where the vitamins in absent. Eating raw egg whites daily can also cause the Biotin deficiency, as explained we need the vitamin in a water-soluble form. The symptoms of lacking this vital vitamin are as listed below.

Being precise with your prescription

Although one can get their daily dose of Biotin from egg yolks, soybeans, whole grains, cauliflower, nuts such as almonds, pecans and walnuts, mushrooms and organ meats such as liver and kidneys, for many to maintain this diet can seem to be rather tricky to follow, especially if you have a busy schedule and don’t have much time to prepare your daily meals.
