Battle of hair

Hair Hair...One of the things I see in the mirror nowadays and simply breaks my heart.

When the seasons change I tend to have a temporary hair fall but lately it has been numberless.I oil my hair after I shower.I take good care of it.But I'm guessing ,the fact I'm running low on iron internally ,is posing threat to the last of my species of hair.

As a kid,I had ass length hair ( another word for real long) but I could care less.My mom says watching me play was watching a male lion playing in the wild.My hair was mostly unkempt,thanks to only me.I didn't like a comb or a brush or oil or human hands going through it.Combing my hair required military like combat skills.It involved my mom screaming my name a 100 times before she chased me and got tired,then the Alpha male dropped in,caught me and fixed in between my mom's super strong thighs.While she hit my head a 100 times to get over her frustration and she poured coconut oil from some pinkish metallic can onto my head.Which progressed to a split in the middle of my head and two plaits.She would say over and over," You will look more human,don't fight me all the time."

Anyways,then I grew up and after a trillion years,I have strands on the deserted island which is my head.The only good thing being,its curly and looks like a gracious mop of hair but the plait isn't thick anymore,its ..not like a python...its like a garden lizard's tail now.

OOhhhhhhh...Dimple Kapadia.....Blessed with beautiful locks.I don't trust any one's head anymore.People use hair extensions like artificial nails now.Easy to fix in and take out.Even Sonam Kapoor's hair is great.Its idiotic to compare our hair with stars I know,coz its good genes firstly and the luxurious use of hair treatments which keep the tresses in good condition.

I have had friends who have awful hair and basically no hair or comparatively less than mine but unless it happens to you,if doesn't seem that inflictive unless you have been the inflicted. sorry I offer no tips..I offer nothing knowledgeable...All I can good organic food,iron rich food,oil your hair..pamper it and pray (fingers crossed) that they stay put.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
