Hair today, gone tomorrow

Hair has a personality of its own and not one that is easy to please. When your tresses behave well, you feel good. But a moody mane can give you tress stress. What’s worse? Hairloss. Hair’s…er… here’s all the help you need.
Q. When do I seek help?
The popular notion is that if you shed around 100 hair strands a day, it is time to consult an expert. But there is no universal standard number. The rule: if you consistently, for a minimum period of two weeks, notice more hairloss than otherwise, take action. Sometimes, when you run a hand through your hair and strands detach easily, that too, is a red flag.

Q. Does oiling help?
Yes. The traditional champi (massage) with coconut oil has been proven to have tremendous benefits on hair and scalp. Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that boost hair health. A good massage improves blood circulation in the scalp.

Q. Do hair spas work for hairloss?
Not really. Hair spa will not reduce hairloss. It helps with frizziness and dryness, as deep conditioners, serums and hair packs help in that. Though it does reduce hair breakage that usually happens while combing and washing hair.

Q. Do touted wonder cures like saw palmetto work in controlling hairloss?
Saw palmetto is a plant whose fruit extract is used to make medicines for hairloss. Believed to work in combating hairloss, it actually blocks an enzyme called 5 alpha reductase which can help in addressing thinning hair. However, it works better in male pattern hairloss. Do consult your dermatologist before trying it out.

Q. Do DIY remedies or kitchen cures prevent or control hairloss?
No matter how many articles you have read on social media about onion juice, kari patta or aloe vera helping in re-growing hair, the fact remains that these topical treatments affect just the texture and look of your hair. Hair density is not affected by topical treatments.

Q. Is there an anti-hairloss diet?
Green foods provide biotin and red and orange foods have iron and antioxidants – all necessary for hair growth. For a hair-raising experience: eat eggs, fish and lean chicken, sprouts, soya, paneer and nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and omega-3 enriched flaxseeds. Multivitamins with B complex, vitamin C and iron can help combat hair loss, but it is best to see a dermatologist before quaffing them down.

Q. Does red light therapy work?
Yes, it can stimulate hair growth. The most commonly used wavelengths for treating hairloss with red light therapy are in the range of 630-670 nanometers. The visible red light is capable of being absorbed by the molecules of the hair follicle leading to possible re-growth, following a natural biological reaction. Try this with a reputed trichologist.

Diet tip: Control your sugar intake: it is a pro-inflammatory agent, which in excess may aggravate hairloss. Nutritional deficiencies and hormonal issues too can lead to a thinning crown

Last chance: Registration for IITs to close at 5 pm today

Mumbai: Registrations for Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) aspirants will end at 5pm today. According to information released by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA), students who had appeared for JEE Advanced and scored qualifying marks in the exam will be eligible for registrations. The first seat allotment list will be released on June 28.

This year, 50,455 students will be vying for the 11,032 seats available across 22 IITs and the Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. Last year, the figure stood at 36,500 candidates for 10,500 seats.

JEE Advanced

Experts said this increase in the number of eligible candidates is due to the 18 bonus marks given to all students by IITs this year for a series of ‘ambiguous’ questions in the paper held on May 21. “IITs had already announced bonus 11 marks to all students earlier this month for three ambiguous questions and last evening they added another seven marks, making it a total of 18 extra marks given to all. This has made a huge difference to final scores of students,” said Vinay Kumar, MD and CEO of Rao Academy, a coaching institute in the city.

The minimum aggregate score for eligibility to admissions to IIT has been slotted at 128 out of 366 this time for the general category, 115 for OBC-NCL and 64 each for SC and ST categories.

5 Cool Things We Saw at Paris Men’s Today

Men’s Mules
Mules are officially trending for spring. Juun.J showed cool leather loafer-mule hybrids today. The silhouette was also done by labels such as Loewe and Edhen Milano this season. Mark it on your must-buy list.

Not a Nike Collab
Israeli designer Hed Mayner is definitely one to watch. He staged his debut show guerrilla style, among the colonnades of Paris’ Palais Brongniart in Place de la Bourse. His sandals with sneaker soles looked like a Nike collaboration, but the designer had actually sourced the soles from the copycat markets of his native Tel Aviv. He teamed them with uppers made from thick furniture leather. The footwear marched in tune with the theme of the collection. It was all about the reappropriation of familiar objects, such as a voluminous trench coat made from a vintage tent. — Stephanie Hirschmiller

Denim Sneakers
Denim shoes are a huge trend in the women’s market, and now it’s trickling into the men’s scene. Cerruti showed tasteful low-top sneakers with denim accents.

Disco Time
Daytime discos are officially a thing. Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons show was strobe light central, and top of the guest list was a Nike collab. Nike Air 180s hit the floor alongside colorful brogue laceups printed trompe l’œil-style to resemble an old-school sneaker. And it all ended in one big ol’ dance-off with models pulling shapes like it was going out fashion. — Stephanie Hirschmiller

Get Ready to Rumble
Haider Ackermann continued his new look for luxe brand Berluti. This season’s standout shoe? A boxing boot-meets-sneaker that came in an off-white colorway. The show also included pool slides and dress shoes.
