Any good treats for hair-loss?

A: Not sure what you are looking for when you refer to it as "treats" lol. I might be able to offer some advice on preventing and helping hair loss though.. In most pharmacies there are vitamins for hair and nails. The good thing about vitamins is that that are usually natural and found in foods that we eat. These "treats" provide key nutriets to keep your hair and nails healthy without providing adverse side effects. Because most people do not receive the proper nutrients from their daily diet (especially in America), vitamins definitely help in keeping our bodies healthy. It is also the reason it is a multi-billion dollar industry. Most "treats" are consumed once a day.. If you use a lot of

Are you supposed to wash and condition hair before or after a hot oil treatment?

A: I tried searching, but couldn''t find any clear answers. If you wash after then it seems it will defeat the purpose of a hot oil treatment, and if you wash before then it seems like the hair will be super oily. So what''s the best thing to do? Hmm, I''ve answered this question before, I think. If so, sorry, because I usually don''t answer the same person''s exact question twice because I know they''re trying to get different opinions. I''ve done it both ways. I prefer to do hot oils before wash and conditioning. The purpose of my doing a hot oil is to make my hair stronger and shinier, and that''s what it does. If I do a


I stay in a very cold climate area...with heavy snowfall....I have to use hot water and electric hair dryer...but if I treat my hair with tonics and other things will it help?

A: Extreme weather can sap the hair of its moisture and hence it is extremely important to condition the hair regularly with the help of deep conditioning treatments. Opt for a highly intensive daily conditioner, especially if you are in the habit of using dryers. Most people commonly make a mistake of rinsing their hair too often during the dry winter months and this is exactly what leads to a dry hair condition. Cold weather tends to dry out the hair and the scalp more easily and quickly. At best, refrain from shampooing your hair more than once a day. Using the right kind of products makes a huge difference in the overall health of your
