I want to know your most effective solution for hair fall. I have been facing this issue for the last three years, and am really depressed because of it. I used to apply onion juice weekly but have not been able to see its effects yet. Please give me a suitable homemade remedy for this problem.

Rosemary oil is very stimulating and will help activate hair growth. Add 2 tablespoons almond oil to 12 drops of rosemary oil. Massage into the scalp. Leave on for a couple of hours a day or overnight. Shampoo the next day and do this as often as you can to get the quickest benefits
I am 23 years old. Ever since I came to Dubai in 2018, I've had too much hair fall and dandruff. I've used several shampoos and hair oils with no effect. Please suggest a remedy.
- Shivam
Hair fall is often chronic and merely applying treatments will not suffice. Ensure you are drinking 10-12 glasses of water daily. It will help cleanse the scalp and body from within. Mix fenugreek powder with dry curry leaf powder and yoghurt. Massage into the scalp. After 30 minutes, dampen your hair and massage the scalp. Rinse well and follow with a mild shampoo. Avoid conditioning your hair. Do this at least twice or thrice a week. The dandruff will clear and hair fall will reduce gradually.

I recently discovered lice in my hair. Could you please suggest a remedy to help me get rid of them immediately?

Neem oil is very beneficial for getting rid of lice so, massage it into every parting of your hair twice a week. Follow with a turban wrap and leave overnight, if possible. The next day, first comb through your hair with a fine comb to get rid of the lice, then follow with shampoo.

I am writing about my three-year-old granddaughter whose hair growth is really poor. Do you have any advice for what we can do about this problem?
- Name withheld
Almond oil is the best remedy for your granddaughter, but make sure you do not let the oil stay on her scalp for more than an hour. Giving her healthy juices, like carrot juice, will add the required nutrients to her diet and help improve quality of hair.
