12 Bad Habits That Can Lead To Hair Loss

Hair loss is mainly caused for natural reasons. DHT hormone-blocking is for these reasons. Again genetic alopecia cause hair fall. Sometimes stress and lack of vitamins can also cause hair loss. Sometimes some uses of skin care products cause hair fall. These skin products contain selenium sulfide that causes scalp infection. As a result of it, your hair follicles will be damaged largely. You will lose a huge amount of hair for that. Again some bad habits can cause hair fall. Here are given below 12 common bad habits of you: 

1. Excessive stress:
Depression and stress are common in human life. It is more in men than women. Men are the only earning member in most of the families. Women just manage family finance and needs. In your leading life, you will have a lot of reasons for stress. But sometimes you become more tensed with a simple matter. This is the reason why you lose hair more and more. The hair loses then become a reason for your stress. As a result of it, you will lose hair and become bald. 

2.Poor feeding:
Most of the time girls love to take fast foods. They also prefer taking fizzy drinks. In the restaurants, you will find women to take such unhealthy foods. These poor diet foods cannot supply proper vitamin in your body organs. If you continue poor feeding, it can affect your hair follicles. As a result of it, you will face hair fall. Some men and women take high vitamin and protein-containing foods. An excessive amount of vitamin can also damage your hair follicles and scalp skin. 

3. Use of hairstyle tools:
Women use heat machine to dry hair after washing. Again some use of an electronic comb to make hair wavy. Some prefer combing or rolling hair using machines. Excessive use of these tools makes hair strands weak. So you will face abnormal hair fall with that. Some tools are used to make designs in hair. If you use these tools only once or twice a week, then it’s okay. But over and overuses of these tools can cause great harm to your hair and scalp. 

4. Excessive use of hair products:
You can use hair products only for your needs. Among this only shampoo is mostly used. Women use hair products more than the men. This is because they prefer good looking hair. So my message is only for girls to stop using hair products. Most of the hair products cause risky chemicals. You have better to use mild shampoo or conditioner. When you have hair fall, you can try the best volumizing shampoo "amplixin". It is safe to use as it does not contain sulfate and paraben. 

5. Smoking all the time:
Smoking is a bad habit for most of the men. There are also a few women who do smoke. Smoking contains toxic which is called nicotine. This nicotine can stop blood circulation in hair follicles. Again it causes great damage to skin by absorbing the moisture of your skin. Without moisture, your scalp will become dry. It will cause dandruff on the scalp and later you will face great hair fall. Sometimes excessive smoking can cause cancer on the scalp that can cause hair fall. 

6. Swimming in the pool:
You can do swim in the pond. But swimming for a long time in the water reduces blood circulation. Even it makes hair scalp more wet and soft so the moisture from your scalp will be removed instantly. You can just spend 1-2 hours to do bath in the pool. If you do a bath under the shower, you cannot spend huge time there. Researchers have examined that about 67 expert swimmers are expert. Again 54 are not expert in swimming. Mostly non-swimmer are 61% who been attacked by hair discoloration symptom. 

7. Color treating hair:
Some women prefer treating hair by color. Men have also treated their hair with colors. These colors contain very effective chemicals. If you treat your hair with color most of the time, it can affect your scalp. That is why you will lose hair great in amount. You can only color when you join a party or occasion. It is better to keep on with natural hair condition. 

8. Teasing hair:
You can do reckless teasing or backcomb with the hair. This will make your hair weak. After wearing a hair, you cannot re-comb it in the back position. The hair may have tangle which you cannot comb easily. Every time women try to modify the hair. This modification creates pressure in the hair follicles. As a result of it, you may lose those hairs. 

9. Wearing hairstyle:
Women make different hairstyles wearing hair. They can modify hair by wearing different sorts of hairs. If it is used most of the time with hair, it will damage hair. You need to pull hair to adjust artificial hair with your real. This pulling pressure can weaken hair follicles. It will later cause hair fall for you.  

10. Setting up hair bands:
You can set up hair bands on your hair to look awesome. It is actually to hold the hair from coming to your eyes. Some men also wear hair bands on hair. But it does not cause any infect on short hair. When women wear bands on long hair it uproots some hair. It is when they try to remove it from the hair.

11. Combing wet hair:
Wet hair should not be combed. The wet hair also keeps the hair follicles wet and soft. It takes a few hours to restore hair follicles. It is better if you try combing or brushing hair after three hours of bathing. 

12. Washing with hot water:
It is really risky to wash hair with hot water. In the cold countries, people do it. But it should not be made a habit. Excessive heat can absorb the moisture of your scalp. So you will lose hair great in amount. 

If you want to keep your hair safe, you should give up these bad habits. You can try these things only a few times. Also, you should take care of hair while you are using shampoo, conditioner or oil to improve it. You must check for the brand and its ingredients before you apply it on your scalp.

When You Run Fingers through Your Hair

When you run fingers through your hair,

It makes me extremely euphoric,

Your black hair steals my heart away,

Reminding me of Nazrul’s lyric.



Sif’s golden hair seems bleak,

The dark cloud during the rainy season,

Must feel ashamed and jealous,

For it does have a logical reason!


May time has no control over your hair!


Black like coal it must remain is my prayer!

All alone All along

like porcelain shavings

her skin began to crack

like a feather floating on thin air

she's losing strands of silken hair


the mirror spits back 

all the qualities in which we lack

like needles in our eyes

poisoned with vain lies


she savored the quiet moments 

devoid of conversation 

the sound of still breathing

the footsteps that followed him leaving.


the closer I feel

the further you fade

the more I crave

the less you feed

so I chose not to need 

a single thing..


will there ever be a solid bridge built to cross..?

a river below, to toss our fears away...

voices muffled, as she sank deeper

yet no hand reaches.

sunshine streaks through the surface

the only warmth you'll get

engulfed in cold fluids

& a heart weighed down by loves disillusions---

many reminders of what could have been..


all alone

she knew it all along..

The River of Your Hair

Perverse & Bazaar
Sun-ripened like the tender skin of a 
sweet pear,
flowing infinitely downward
past and onward still;
a nape of neck, but ever downward,
Her almond tresses spill.
Bare shoulder brushing 
aside the tickle
but still a trickle downward,
ever onward,
never still.
Between her breasts 
where hill meets dale,
most beautiful curtain
creates immaculate veil.

Vibrations on A Hardwood Floor

He told me his fingers could get trapped in my roots.
And he wasn’t speaking of my family tree.
I was his sugar rum cherry
 Syrupy treat
 And so bitter sweet.
He said I spoke in verse
and giggled in rhyme.
 He said I reminded him of a tune
Too elusive to recall.
 My body was inspiration
 that he could not transcribe.
 So he made it a point to
Commit me
in all my dimensions
to memory.
He became trapped in these roots.
Just as  I feared.
I was his a-
His a(hhh)
His af(firmation)
 His Afr(ica)
His afro

Pig Mask Dream - 9/20/2012

I had this Dream about a Year ago and I forgot to post it on here so here it is.... I must say this dream was unbelievably creepy. My cousin, who is going to college for producing films, wanted to use this dream for one of his short films, lol. It's an interesting dream to say the least... Anyway, here it goes:


Pig Mask Dream 9/20/2012 

I was in this trailer with this kid and my in-laws and Jeff (My Husband). There were huge fish tanks everywhere with bizzar looking fish in them. I was wanting to take the fish tanks home and as I was walking to the door there was a panic.


The little kid started screaming. And one of my in-law's said "Someone is at the door". I was spooked. The door had a window with a light colored curtian covering it and I could see the shilloette of a man through it. I freaked and we all ran to the back room.


We heard banging from outside the trailer. We kept going from room to room. This trailer seemed to be growing rooms! Then the banging stopped and I told the kid it hide by the side of the bed of the room we were in. I walked out into the hallway and looked out the window, and there were these men in pig masks looking through the windows and they started banging on the windows and trailer again.


I ran to make sure the door was locked and make sure no one had got inside. Then I looked out the window and saw a riot going on. People were swinggin chains, carrying weapons and shooting guns, and running in the street around the trailer!


I ran back to the room that the kid was in and it was just me and the kid there. I looked into the next room and there was this girl in her underwear hunched down in the dark room and her hair was long and black and it covered her and part of the floor. She was breathing very heavily.


I was so afraid to go into the room so I slwoly backed away and when I turned around the kid I was with had changed. He had black as cole eyes and huge bags and was completely pail and he just stared at me. Then I woke up. 


The Threat

Unknowingly she carries a threat,

She is who she is,

And your ace is her card,

Saturated and wet.

Disquietude  within,

What does she own?

Out of  her mind,

Out of your zone,

Disillusioned by fear,

Her dress is duress,

And the hair on her head,

Never ever a mess.

A comb on the vanity,

And her vanity,

Her home,

Threatening insanity,

As her sanity will roam.

Feed her, you'll wither,

Starve her she'll die,

Suckle her ego,

You'll find out she's shy.

Conceal from her your passion,

Your  envy will rage,

Bear your grace to her mirror

Cause the show's on your  stage.

Not the only one going crazy~

Dark night, bright moon,

you lit my heart on fire.

scorching sun, you have given me purpose,

it lifts me higher.


drift into sleep, I'm wishing to see you in my dreams...

at least I can feel you there..

I miss the way you'd push back your hair..

off to the side when you just don't care..


the taste of June.. 

the scent of July.. 

the warmth of August.. 

September i'll always remember.

October is way worth to forget.

feeble, faint... 


painting a portrait with this soul that reminds me of you,

smudged & running.. 

is this all now but a delusion...?

I can't help but question... 


please precious smile, stay with me for a long while.

eyes so piercing..

i'm sorry I can't stop myself from recapping..

it's breaking me apart inside

but i'll hold myself together & stick around for the ride..


shallow waters.. low tide.

stop trying to pry open my head.. 

i'll keep shaking you off to the side, instead..

if you can't understand these petty complexes..

i'm not the only one going crazy.

i'm not asking you to save me..

addolorato per l'aria raffiche

grovigli nei capelli.

The willow weeping

saddend by the gusty air

tangles in her hair.
