I feel my hair greasy and messy. Is it OK to shampoo the hair daily?

– Sonali V, Jhabua

Ans.: Pollution and dust makes your hair frizzy and greasy. When you move outdoors, always cover your hair with a scarf or dupatta. It is not advisable to shampoo your hair everyday. Shampoo your hair twice a week, preferably with a mild or herbal shampoo.

I have found a few strands of gray hair. Can I use black mehandi to colour the hair black?

I am experiencing a lot of hair fall. Please help.

– Farrukh K, Thane

Ans.: It is normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. New hair grows from the hair follicle which loses the hair. However, when this natural replacement does not occur, consult a dermatologist or a hair expert to ascertain the cause of this hair loss and suggest an appropriate therapy.
