In today's hectic life style we do not have time for anything let alone to breath. For smallest activity we have to plan and keep aside some time in advance. This lifestyle has lead to many problems in our lives especially in Health related matters. Increasing pollution along with hectic lifestyle has doubled our problems.

One of the most affected arena of our health is our Hairs. Hairs plays a very important part in our beauty. When someone sees us he/she also sees our hairs. No matter how grandly we have got ready but if our hair is not looking good we don't look half good as we have desired. Ask me same thing happen with me in my sister's marriage. I had got ready in a grand way but at that time my hairs were not good so my whole appearance was not looking good. And being bride's sister I have to be there in every place and every ceremony and got many picture clicked. In almost all pictures I was not looking good and I feel very bad about them. So after that incident I tried many ways through which I can solve my hair problems.

And here I am with some home remedies to solve some actually almost all types of Hair Problems.

Problem 1: HAIR LOSS

Hair Loss is the most common and i think most found problem in today's time. At least 95 % among the people I know suffers from this problem. Normally we think that some hair loss is natural as hair naturally repairs themselves, but it is not so. Once hair loss start from some hairs and then one fine day you wake up and find that you are losing hairs very badly.

You can use any natural hair oil with good nourishment quality. Oil can be olive, coconut, almond oil. But i prefer Mustard oil. Most of you after reading this will feel that mustard oil is eww. But mustard is great source of nourishment for hairs.

How to do the Massage ?
