Home remedies for Lice

Monsoon woes don’t end with dandruff. The sweaty and sticky scalp brings lice with it. Worry not, as there are solutions in the form of onion and garlic juice.

Hair transplant surgeon Sakshee Sareen says that due to accumulation of sweat in the scalp, chances of hair lice or fungal infection increases during the monsoon season.

“And since the scalp remains wet for a longer duration, the hair lice multiplies very rapidly,” Sareen told IANS.

Lice are found mostly in long hair, and she advises not to tie up damp hair.

“Lice are found majorly in long hair because they can easily lodge and multiply in comparison to shorter hair. If long hair is tied up for long, the chances of lice increases because of the dampness and sweat,” she said.

But women need not fear as one can take steps to prevent lice from attacking the scalp.

“Those with long hair specially should wash their hair regularly and after washing should completely dry their hair before tying it up. Once or twice in a week, check for lice and brush hair with soft bristle comb,” said Sareen.

Since lice spread fast, even if a family member or friend has the problem you should take care. She advises not to share personal belongings like comb, hair accessories, pillow and other products that touch the hair.

Sareen suggests few home remedies for lice. Garlic, neem and onion can be of great help.

Natural home remedies For Lice:

“Apply garlic paste or juice all over your hair and scalp, keep it for some 30-40 minutes, then wash it. One can try onion juice and white vinegar mixture – apply it on your scalp and keep it for at least an hour. Neem oil is also very effective to remove hair lice and it should be kept for one-and-a-half to two hours,” she said.

If you think natural remedies consume time, use medicated lotions or sprays.

“There is anti-lice shampoo also, but it will only kill the lice not the eggs. So it’s better to opt for natural solutions,” she said.(IANS)

Roses have a lot of uses apart from its de-stressing fragrance. From being an ace hydrator to being a healer, experts have rated the rose and its petals high for their uses.

Amit Sarda, Managing Director at Soulflower, and Sonia Mathur, Beauty Expert and Training head at Organic Harvest, have rolled out a list of uses of a rose:

Benefits of Rose water & Rose water Uses:

August 21, 2017: Falling asleep to the sound of raindrops and waking up to watch them trickle down your car window; long drives in the monsoon surely are magical. But once you’re out of the car, the same monsoon turns into a nightmare for your beautiful tresses. To survive these monsoon blues, supermodel Noyonika Chatterjee gives primary importance to the true texture of her hair and asserts that that should be of primary importance when styling them during the rainy season.

Monsoon weather is synonymous with lots of frizz, hair fall and dandruff. The monsoon also brings with it dullness to your hair.

“It’s very important to keep the true texture of your hair in mind when styling your hair in the monsoon, as maintenance during this period is tough” believes Noyonika. According to her, the best way to manage hair during this time of the year is to use products that suit one’s hair texture. “I use a bit of extra conditioner, or use a leave-in conditioner, to keep the frizz at bay,” she added.

Noyonika started modelling at the age of 13. With her unconventional looks, she rode high in the modelling industry for a considerable time, with many people identifying her as the Naomi Campbell of India. More recently, she got associated with luxury hair styling brand TIGI as an image consultant to train and impart soft skills to candidates of TIGI Backstage Heroes platform. “Grooming in any job and industry is necessary. But in a field like hair styling, it holds even greater importance,” she said.

Asserting the principle of ‘By Hairdressers; For Hairdressers’, TIGI is a luxury hair care and styling brand which recently expanded their curriculum to help budding hair stylists finesse their personalities, and brought Noyonika on board to impart soft skills knowledge and help the candidates develop the right attitude and confidence that is needed to emerge as winners in the industry.

“If a hairstylist is well groomed, polite and a good conversationalist, it evokes confidence in the client,” said the former supermodel who realized the importance of grooming very early in her career. She believes it is a hairstylist’s job to sell a hairstyle, and that requires a combination of skills and talents.

Extending her support to TIGI’s unique approach of bringing the real heroes working backstage to the front, she believes competitions not only establish hair styling as a justifiable career but also help develop, expand and promote the hair industry in India.

According to the report by ANI, Noyonika swears by TIGI products and calls herself a fan of the brand. “It is always great to associate with a product you truly enjoy,” she said.
