The condition occurs equally in men and women and although unpleasant, it can be controlled fairly easily with some home remedies. Here are some ways to deal effectively with the problem:
Massage with warm oils
Dry scalp and poor blood circulation are among the possible causes of dandruff and if this is the case, massage with warm oil can be very helpful.

Hair has a major aesthetic role for all of us and therefore hair loss, or damaged hair worries not only men but also women.
It is believed, that a normal person loses 50 to 100 hairs every day, and it does not affect vision of our hair. For hair loss we can talk when fallen hair is considerably more and drop out of the scalp without much effort. Before taking any measures to treat hair loss, you must consult a dermatologist. He will determine the possible cause of thinning hair and recommend appropriate treatment. Self-medication should be avoided because it may have unwanted side effects. Experts differ several types of hair loss:
Androgen hair loss is the most common and is believed that it has family story. It is caused by the impact of androgen (male) hormones. In females this type of hair loss occurs with thinning hair at the temples, and later loosing hair at the front part of the scalp.
The process develops itself into symmetrical sections and rarely starts before of the age of twenty. Although, women also suffer from androgenic alopecia and according to different sources, the percentage of affected is between 10 and 20%.
2. Hair loss caused by illness
Many diseases or mechanical harm can lead to hair damage follicles. Traumatic hair loss appears very often as a result of accidental physical injury, or as a result of frequent cosmetic procedures. In most cases, hair loss is reversible, and hair recovers itself after eliminating the reason. The most common causes are frequent treatment of hair with different dyes and pigments, daily use of presses and hair-dryer. Experts warn that high temperatures destroy hair structure and permanently damaging it. It is recommended that hair should be left to dry itself.
3. Reactive hair loss
In some states, such as prolonged and high fever, blood loss, mental shock and severe stress, in some people can appear significant hair loss and even baldness.
Dermatologists calm that reactive hair loss is reversible and within a few months hair follicles fully recover. In 30% to 50% of women,(after childbirth) appears significant loss of hair, but it recovers to half a year later.

In order to function well, lymphatic system must be in very good condition. Millions of people around the world are struggling with sluggish and slow lymphatic system. This is because it is clogged by waste products and fat. The lymphatic system is closely related to our immune system. Speed with which operates the immune system depends on the bad or good function of lymph.
When infected, the cells that have identified "invader", have to migrate into the lymphatic system and to deliver data to lymphocytes (T cells), which are located in the lymph tissue.
What is lymph stasis?
Proper movement of lymph is essential for fast movement of our immune system during infection (and not only).
The fluid between each cell of our body, turns itself into lymph fluid, while enters the lymph vessels. The waste products of metabolism, that are too large to enter the blood, are transported through our lymphatic system to the liver for processing. The more we are exposed to depreciation of various factors and conditions, the more waste products have to go through this lymphatic system.
