Welcome to HealthcareMagic

To lose weight in healthy manner is to take diet which is high in fiber reducing the carbohydrate intake in the diet. Foods which are rich in Biotin and Zinc help to reduce hair loss: Excellent sources include chard (spinach beet), tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and carrots. Very good sources include almonds, chicken eggs, onions, cabbage, cucumber, and cauliflower. Good sources include goat's milk, cow's milk, raspberries, strawberries, halibut (Flat fish), oats, sunflower seeds, brewer’s yeast, Peanuts, Oysters and walnuts.Include atleast any of the above two foods in your daily diet which are low in calories.
Here are some tips to be followed to avoid excess Hair loss:
1: Don’t sleep with stuff in your hair, like hair wax, hair gel, or hair spray because this sort of hair products contain different type of oils that will wrap of your pillow and then on your face causing acne.
2: Don’t wash your hair everyday because you will get your scalp and skin dehydrated from its natural oils. Also don’t wash your hair with hot water because if you do it will really dry off your scalp and your hair may fall out easily.
3: If you are one of the people with really thin hair and your hair get tangled when you browse your hair through it, the best solution to this problem that I can think of is getting layers.
4: This is for people who like to dye their hair. If you do love dying your hair, try to do it every six months, but no often than that. If you do it too often your hair will get really dry and damaged. So, try to use hair dye as little as possible.
5: This tip is for people with really oily hair. If you are one of this people do not use conditioners, because your hair does not need it.
6: If you are one of the people with dry hair do not use 2 in 1 conditioners because the conditioner in the 2 in 1 package is not strong enough, so I suggest you can a separate shampoo and a separate really creamy conditioner.
7: Buy the right shampoo. If you are one of the people with really dry hair and you use a shampoo designed for oily hair, then your hair will get even drier. So, be very careful when choosing the shampoo.
8: People with chemically treated hair, like hair that is curled, dyed or waxed a lot, you need moisture. So, if you have curly hair use moisture. If you have dyed hair you need a special shampoo that contains a substance called pentanol in it.
9: If you like to straighten your hair make sure to use a ceramic hair straightener instead of a iron straightener.
10: One last tip is to live a healthy life. Eat well, lots of fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, sleep enough and try to stay out of stress.
