Bad habits as hair loss causes

Can smoking cause hair loss?

Usually we tend to say that our century has turned into a very bad road with a lot of bad habits to ruin our health and social life, too. From some point of view it may be true because everything has become much more easier to get. The market is full of awesome (and less awesome) offers to buy and try, available to most of us. Nevertheless I’m not sure about some of the bad habits. What about one of the biggest market, smoking? It has an effect on our health and beauty as well. I can’t say it’s a good effect. And actually smoking itself has a centuries-old history. Can it have a bad effect also on your hair? Is it a possible cause of hair loss?

Long-haired woman and smoke.
Smoking has its own history but it doesn’t make it a healthy habit.


History of smoking

Although Christopher Colombus is said to be the first European to smoke, America discovered it ages before. It’s thought that smoking was common in shamanistic rituals as early as 5000 BC. Carvings from around 900 AD shows that Mayan civilizations also smoked and even a Mayan pot was found in Guatemala in 2012. It was full of cigars. After hand-made cigarettes and pipes, rolled and boxed cigarettes became available only from the late 1800s when mass production started and generated a huge demand on the market. It was the most popular at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. While you can see terrible pictures about the effects of smoking on boxes today, it was something „cool” before. Advertised also by famous persons. By now it’s become acknowledged that smoking is harmful in several ways but let’s get back to hair care. Does it have any bad effect on hair? Is it a possible cause of hair loss?

Smoking and your body

All of us are aware of the biggest harm it may cause: it can seriously damage your lungs. You’ve possible faced its bad effects on skin, as well. In this post I’m gonna write about something else. This is the effect smoking can have on vitamins in your body. We can say that the human body creates itself time after time by building millions of cells. To do that it needs essential vitamins and minerals, too. Unfortunately free radicals are also generated in our bodies. By toxins. Not only because of bad habits, like smoking but also through some normal metabolic processes. These free radicals can damage healthy cells and vitamins are the key to protect us by neutralizing them. The sad thing is that when you smoke the production of free radicals are faster. It means that your body uses  – and needs – more vitamins.

  • After smoking just one cigarette you can say good-bye to almost half of the recommended daily doses of Vitamin C. To the vitamin that can strengthen your hair.
  • This bad habit may decrease also the levels of vitamin B what is essential for healthy scalp.
  • It can influence on the absorption of dietary iron. The essential mineral that can help to prevent hair loss.
  • Vitamin E is, the „beauty anti-oxidant” can help you to have beautiful and younger skin, of course… but it can do a lot also about neutralizing the toxins generated by smoking. The level of this vitamin may also be lower if you smoke.
Vegetables and fruits
You can have the best vitamins from food. Keep a balanced diet.

The relation between smoking and hair loss

Smoking effects your body’s abilty to absorb vitamins and minerals. So I think it’s just normal logic. You’re body needs sufficient nutrients to build healthy cells. Also for growing healthy hair. Smoking decrease the levels of vitamins while increase the production of free radicals that destroy cells. It sounds obvious that smoking can have a bad effect on your hair, too. Smoking may be a reason of hair loss by reducing the levels of vitamins and minerals.

In the other hand, even if we say that smoking can take part in hair loss, it doesn’t mean that the ones who doesn’t smoke never face this problem. Hair loss is a common problem among both genders, several ages. And it’s not that simple to find the real reason. It’s not something to find out in a post, not even on one single visit at the doctor. Genetics, some diseases, infections, some medicines, stress or incomplete nutrition all can be a possible reason. And smoking can make the situation even worse.

A hand refuses cigatettes from another hand.
Ask for help and quit smoking.

I know that quit smoking is not easy. It’s said that only 3 out of 100 persons can do that. Nevertheless it’s never too late to make another try and in the meantime you can focus on taking vitamins. Smokers are adviced to take higher amount of Vitamin C. A balanced diet is also important because it’s the best to get the vitamins and minerals from food.

Before taking extra amounts of any nutritional supplements, ask for advice from a doctor.

Natural oils for healthy hair

Argan oil in hair care

I have always loved everything about Egypt and just like so many others I also had the feeling there was something miraculous about its history. The pyramids and mummies have always enchanted me so much that I had made all my presentations about ancient Egypt in the primary school. So it’s obvious that I was really super excited in 1999 when the film „The Mummy” got into the movies. But why I mention this film about Egypt when I write about Argan oil in hair care? Because it was filmed in the home of Argan oil, Morocco.

Use Argan oil in hair care for beautiful hair..

This super effective oil comes from 26-33 ft high argan trees which usually live for two hundred years in southwestern Morocco where arganeraie forests are designated as a Unesco biosphere reserve. The oil itself is made of the kernels of the argan tree and often called „liquid gold” or „miracle oil” because being rich in nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins. It is obviously not unknown in cosmetic industry given it has a lot of benefits not only for hair but for skin as well. For the ones who prefer natural solutions Argan oil can be a really good choice. If you are tired of chemicals and artificial ingredients and would like to try an organic conditioner, use Argan oil in hair care and in skin care if you like.

We love Argan oil. Goats do as well.

What can Argan oil help you about?

  • It supports growing healthy hair thanks to Vitamin E, antioxidants and omega-6 fatty acids.
  • It makes your scalp healthier and helps to get rid of dandruff.
  • Using Argan oil in hair care can turn thin, brittle hair into healthier and stronger.
  • You can treat split ends with it (but remember that the effect will last only till next time you wash your hair).
  • It may undo some negative effects from dying or other chemical treatments.
  • Your hair will be shiny, soft and more manageable.
  • Also frizzy hair love it because it helps you to tame frizz.
  • It protects your hair being dry and dull also after swimming whether you swim in the sea or in a pool.
  • It is worth a try if you suffer from hair loss or your hair grow slow.
  • Also protects your hair from sun damage if you apply it before going outside.

Let’s see how you should apply Argan oil if you would like to enjoy these benefits. It’s wonderful how many different ways you can use this single oil. And the list is only about using Argan oil in hair care.

  • Scalp massage: You can support and stimulate your hair follicles if you apply a few drops on your scalp and massage it with circular motions, starting with the front hairline to the back of your head, then each side. It will help to reduce hair loss and if you apply it 15-20 minutes before shampooing it may protect your head of hair from harsh shampoo components.
  • Shampoo: If you have dry, brittle and / or damaged hair my advice is to look for shampoos with the ingredient Argan oil.
  • Hair conditioner: After using a few drops on towel dry hair as a leave-in conditioner and massaging it into your scalp your hair will be easier to manage without any greasy residue.
  • Hair styling agent: Put a few drops of Argan oil to the palm of your hands and run your hands all along your hair (which don’t need to be wet). It will give gloss to your hair and make it manageable while help to tame frizz.
  • Hair mask: Although there is a huge range of hair masks on the market you may prefer something natural but super effective. If so you can try using Argan oil as a hair mask. To do that apply liberal amount of oil and massage it into your scalp and hair from the roots to the tips. Leave it on your hair for minimum a few hours but you can also sleep with the mask on your hair, just use a towel to wrap your hair in to prevent staining.
  • Sun protection: Appling a few drops all along your hair before leaving your home can do a lot for the sun protection of your hair.

Argan oil can make your hair strong and healthy.

If you would like to use Argan oil in hair care you can choose from various products with this ingredient or you can decide buying pure Argan oil. It is up to you but both ways can do a lot for the health of your head of hair.

Scalp massage III.

Scalp massage at home

After writing about the advantages of scalp massage and have a short sum up about what massage types you can choose from it is time to have a look at what you can do for your health at your home. Although there are some massage types that can be applied by a professional you still can use some techniques to reduce stress, improve the balance in your life and make a good effect on your hair and scalp. 😊And also if you have no time to travel regularly to a salon you still can enjoy the benefits of scalp massage by trying it at home. You can do it for yourself and your loved ones as well. I show three main ways starting from the least costly.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage at home

Scalp massage by fingertips
By massaging your scalp with your fingertips you can stimulate the blood flow and support the hair follicles. It is very usefull if you have problems with hair loss or thin hair. You can reach a good result with only 4-5 minutes of massage per day. To save some time you can do it also during shampooing or before shampoo. Some oils can be used if you like aromatherapy. Scents like lavender or mint can boost the effect and help about reducing stress as well. Start the massage from the hairline’s edge (from forehead) and go toward the crown with small circles and gentle pressure. Make your way across your scalp then riverse the direction and start from your neck. Repeat these movements from both sides.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage techniques at home

Scalp massage with using some tools
If you prefer or just have more belief in using some tool you can try several kinds for quiet low price. On the market special brushes can be found especially for scalp massage. The technique is about brushing your scalp from back to the hairline while you move your head a little left and right. After this you can repeat from the hairlines to the nape area and from the sides as well. By repeating the whole procedure three times you can have better effects. You can do some massage during shampooing as well given special scalp massage shampoo brushes are available too. Do this massage twice a week with gentle pressure.

Solution to hair loss?

Given I wrote about the relation of hair loss and stress in the previous post it is time to have a look if scalp massage could help to get relaxed and keep the most hair as possible but first of all:

I am sure that we all know that the state of hair shows a lot about our overall health so it is not just a little thing that can be ignored and keep on testing more and more products or treatments and trying to solve a problem at home… in case you have tried to fix it but it doesn’t get better it is highly recommended to visit your doctor.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage

And now get back to scalp massage 😊 If you are in a life situation with too much stress and you are searching for a solution of getting relaxed, even if stress had no effect on your hair at all, scalp massage is for you. The procedure itself is really nice and enjoyable with no pain and its benefits may apply not only to your hair but your eyes, your head and even to your shoulders with reducing pain in that area. Scalp massage was not born in our century. It is not a new way of approaching stress and some health problems. Actually this Indian treatment is so ancient that even Ayurveda wrote about it 2000 years ago. In the past Indian mothers had the role of massaging their children and family members in a weekly basis. They did believed that scalp massage has its advantages and able to improve health condition.

Your Beauty Hair about scalp massage and hair loss

If you would like to try it and decide to make it a regular habit you can have following benefits:

  • Shiny, healthy and stronger hair
  • Better sleep at night
  • More creativity and concinnous thoughts
  • Improved memory
  • It is able to reduce stress and increase the level of endorphins
  • and soothe pains like headache

All of the listed results can support your hair. Beside reducing stress scalp massage have a good influence on blood circulation and help to provide sufficient oxygen to the cells of hair and skin. If you suffer from hair loss related to stress or not it is worth trying this kind of treatment.

In the next post I am going to have a closer look at what types of hair massage solutions can be found on the market these days.

Hair loss and stress

Decrease stress and strengthen your hair

Although most of the adults spend a lot of time with work (a lot of us with work we do not like at all) there is a growing number of people who recognised the importance of healthy lifestyle, including keeping the balance in their lives. I think all of us want to be healthy but most of us is much too lazy or tired to do some sport or much too stressed to slow down and pay some attention to theirselves. It may lead to losing your balance in life. And once it happened you must work hard to get that balance back. Too much stress and rushing lifestyle can cause real illnes and increase hair loss as well. Life has its natural circle and we gain new hair while we lost some old ones but anytime you realise to suddenly lose more hair than normally it is better to visit your doctor.

Your Beauty Hair about the relation of stress and hair loss

There may be more reasons in the background. In this post I write about one reason that cannot be fully avoid. This reason is stress. If your life is full of problems and you feel you will not be able to handle them or you work too much and do not have the time for yourself and for your loved ones you probably have more stress than a healthy level. Thinking all day about what is wrong in your life and being unhappy and unsatisfied will not help but can cause health problems. It is the same with work. When there is too much responsibility in the position you work in or the opposite… you have a job with no challenge you waste valuable years of your life for someone else’s business or to a job that is not for you. Such situations bring too much stress into your life.

In a life period when you are emotionally or phisically overwhelmed a lot of your hair follicles will be pushed into rest and within a few months they will suddenly fall out. (Telogen efflovium). If you listen to your body and you are able and willing to change you can grow them back. In other cases severe stress may have a role in the appearance of an autoimmune disease called Alopecia areata in which the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles. All of these facts show that it is time to take it serious and find the way to slow down and give our human body the chance of real recreation.

Stress and hair on Your Beauty Hair

The advice of this post is trying to find your way of recreation in order to maintain your overall health and the beauty of your hair as well. Depending on your personality it can be meditation, making trips to the nature, doing some sport, reading a good book, watching the sea while drinking some herbal tea, listening to music, talking with your friends or just sitting in the garden listening to the wind 😊 … it really depends on you. There are really good products on the market against hair loss but the first step should be getting back the balance in your life and decrease stress.

Hair care with NuSkin

My favourite hair care products

Today’s post is a little different from the others. It is not about one general problem but about the decision I made when I have chosen these products for hair care.

What to know about ammonia

Think before hair colour

I am sure that most of the adult women have tried hair colouring at last ones. As we are getting old it is even more likely to try a few. I am sure also about the fact that choosing the colour itself often depends rather on the latest fashion instead of the personal characteristics like the skin tone or the colour of the eyes. Choosing the products most of us would like to find the ones providing the desired colour as long as possible. It means more effective but usually harmful solutions. Before choosing a hair colour product it is worth to check the ingredients and better search for something without ammonia. These days there are more and more products on the market being not toxic. Although ammonia is very often used in hair colour and also in other cosmetic products you can choose organic colours as well.

Your Beauty Hair about ammonia in hair colour

What are the dangerous effects of ammonia

  • It damages the hair cuticle and make your hair dry, brittle and thin
  • It can cause allergy and problems like hair loss or itchy scalp
  • Ammonia may destroy not only your hair but the cells in your body as well
  • Long-term use may cause depression
  • Daily exposures can cause problems like high blood pressure or bronchitis
  • If you are continously contact with ammonia hydoxide you run the risk of serious skin complications
  • Ammonia fumes can damage your eyes, lungs or kidneys

Because of the long list above it is highly recommended to think the whole procedure through and find a non-toxic solution for home or visit a salon working with organic products. Henna can be a gentle way of hair colour but even such dyes may contain other harmful components. Black henna contain PPD, another dangerous agent.

Your Beauty Hair abour hair colour and ammonia

The decision is up to you but whatever you choose regarding hair colour it is still very important to take good care of your hair before and after the colouring. Knowing your own needs, using quality products and moisturizing is essential for healthy head of hair whether it is coloured or not. This deep conditioning hair mask can provide hydratation to your hair and triple the strength of it. The innovative component of CS7 can strengthen each cuticle and make your hair smooth shiny and managable.

Dandruff reasons

Ava puhi, a botanical shampoo to get rid of dandruff

Although dandruff is not a real disease it can be very embarrassing for the persons who have it. Appearing of those white flakes on our favourite blouse can turn our day bad. All the same you don’t need to be resigned of this situation. Very often it is just a temporary condition being able to be handled with special hair care products. In some other cases certain diseases can be in the background so visiting a doctor is also an option.

Dandruff itself consists of dead skin from the scalp. All of us have such dead skins but normally the process of shedding is so slow that you don’t even realise it. When you face the problem of having too much white flakes it shows the process has a faster rate. The skin cells and the oil from the scalp together may result bigger flakes. Another parts of this problem may be itchy skin, too oily or too dry hair, increasing hair loss and dandruff can appear also on other skin surfaces (just for example on your elbow). What can be the reasons of this condition?

Ava puhi against dandruffThere are three main reasons:

1. Not the proper hair care

If you wash your hair too often your scalp may become dry. If you need a shampoo every day take care about choosing the proper product being suitable for daily hair wash. Of course having not enough shampoo is also a problem because your hair may become very oily and also because you don’t remove the dead skins from your scalp. Choosing the frequency of shampoo should not be a decision made by following friend’s advice or some celebrities daily routin…all of us need to know our own human body and apply the care WE need. Using too hot blow-dryer can also be a reason of dandruff by making your scalp dry.

2. Diseases of the scalp

The most common disease related dandruff is seborrheic dermatitis. If you suffer from this you may have small red spots on your scalp, on your hairline and also on some other parts of your body. These spots have some kind of inflamation. In this case another problem may be the high volume of the fungus Malassezia on the scalp which probably produce toxic materials and cause irritation.

Several reasons may cause dandruff

3. Other diseases being not related with scalp

Psoriasis or some allergic reactions can also cause dandruff just like some congenital diseases or hormonal problems. If you have tried more kinds of shampoos against dandruff but there are no results and you still have the problem it is very important to see a doctor to clear the reasons and find the proper solution.

If you would like to try an effective product against dandruff I suggest you to try a botanical shampoo with the component of Ava pihi and Zinc. Check the product here and contact me if you would be happy to buy it at a more favourable price. I am open to receive your questions at or use Your Beauty Hair’s contact form.

Have you tried all tearless shampoos?

Hair care in childhood

Children usually don’t like their hair being washed but in young age the hair and scalp is more sensitive and more fragile so they need some special care. It is important to strenghten the hair-bulbs and moisturise the scalp as well. If you have a new born baby she or he may have lots of hair or nothing at all. Whatever is true in your case it is not forever. This hair will be gone already in the first 6 months and this hair loss is normal and caused by hormonal changes. The new hair can have different texture and/or type.

Little ones need special care

Infants whichever age they are in have thiner and weeker hair and all the negative effects from the environment or from the tools like combs can cause damages just like in case of adults. Let us make a list about things to consider:

  • Accessories like barettes or just simply making too tight ponytails can damage the hair so maybe better to avoid them.
  • Another challenging task is finding the perfect products for them. It is definatelly not that easy given every child is different. You may try several products before finding the right one for your loved little one.
  • You need to measure the frequency of shampoo as well which depends on the type and the texture of your child’s hair and also on how oily or dry the scalp is. Keep monitoring the results and make a change if it is necessary. Reduce frequency in case of dry hair and increase it if the scalp is oily.
  • Don’t forget that even if you choose a tearless shampoo you need to be careful about massaging and gentle to avoid making stress to the hair follicles.
  • And still…after all of these points you can have some problems of itchy scalp if you did not rinse the shampoo out perfectly.

Kid's hair get stronger as they grow

After shampoo and rinsing infants also may need conditioner but it may change as the seasons. As far as I see the main aim in childhood is not only maintaining a healthy head of hair but creating and teaching the proper habits for the child regarding hair care. It is easy to say but not that easy to do given there is not only one good way and the parents themselves are also learning and trying.

If you have tried a lot of shampoo but still have not found the best one just give a chance to a gentle and effective baby shampoo with Hibiscus flower extracts. Have a look at a product made for children and contact me at or just  use Your Beauty Hair’s contact form if you would be happy to buy it at a more favourable price.

Why do you need fat for healthy hair

What vitamins do you need for beautiful hair?

For me the question itself sounds a bit strange because I think we need all the necessary minerals and vitamins for a healthy living and being “just” beautiful cannot be a real aim. Our amazing body builds every little piece of million cells time after time…but to do that it is required to vitalize it. If you miss these essential components your human body cannot create that shiny hair, perfect skin or strong bones. So let’s see what vitamins are the most important for your hair.

You need fat with vitamins for healthy hair

Vitamin A

This vitamin can help you about fighting against dandruff given it prevents your scalp and hair from drying. You can find a lot of it in cod liver oil, carrot, spinach or egg yolk. If you don’t have enough from this vitamin you may have problems with your eyes first given this is essential for them as well. You must be careful because overdose can be dangerous too.

Vitamin E

This vitamin can do for you more than having beautiful skin. It has a good effect on oxygen uptake of blood and helps to grow shiny hair and reduce hair loss. To provide sufficient amount soybeans, avocado, olive oil or broccoli can help you.

It is a fat-soluble vitamin just like the first mentioned Vitamin A so that’s why you need fat for beautiful hair and for being healthy as well. 😊

You need oil to have healthy hair

Vitamin B

The last vitamins I would like to mention in this post belong to the Group of vitamin B:

  • Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) protects and strengthen your hair because it can do a lot about hydration. You can find it in so many kinds of food that lack of this vitamin happens only rare occasions. You can have the biggest amount from zoogenic nutriment like liver or egg but also whole grains contain a lot.
  • Biotin (Vitamin B7) is perfect to support your hair given it can make it more elastic. It assists in metabolism and help to build keratin, the main component of hair. In case of lack of it you may have inflammation of skin and lips, hair loss and even exhaustion or depression but you can refill it from yeast, egg, nuts or lentils.

Vitamins keep your balance

These vitamins have much more roles to keep our overall health and balance but you can do a lot for healthy and beautiful hair if you listen to your eating habits and of course  if you don’t forget drinking enough water. Unfortunately our food contains less and less nutritional value as  decades pass by so more and more people take vitamin pills to have the correct amount of vitamins and minerals. If you feel about being lost among the vast supply of such products feel free to contact me by Your Beauty Hair’s contact form or message me at for more information.
