Hairfall ? You may be eating the wrong Foods

For a girl there is one thing which makes her look even more beautiful than she already is. Its her HAIR.

Yes, you read that correctly. Forget the almond shaped eyes, the flawless skin or the luscious lips. Its the hair. Dermatologists say that they can predict how healthy a person is by just looking at their hair.

You may say that you eat a lot of food. But at times its not the quantity that matters, but the correct type of nutrients. I once did a project in school about balanced diet. It said the same thing as well : Focus on what goes in and not how much goes in.

Why does your hair start falling ? Because the body says, " I am not getting enough nutrients, so I won't supply to some part of the body." So it decides to sacrifice the least important one : HAIR

So, I've browsed through a couple of sites and found out the best ways to prevent hair fall (and it doesn't include going for hair spa).


1. CHICKEN (protein) 
This may not stop the normal, everyday hair loss, however it will help you replace the lost ones. Protein are the building blocks for hair. Vegetarians can have chickpeas (chole) or lentils.

2. STRAWBERRIES
You need vitamin C to build the proteins and strawberries are full of them. You can have other citrus fruits like sweetlimes, guavas etc.


3. ALMONDS / WALNUTS / CASHEWNUTS
My favorite. You can have these on the go. If you have any problems eating them hard, soak and have it. They contain Vitamin E and protects your hair from the UV rays.

4. BEANS / SPINACH (palak)
When you have the I-can-see-my-scalp kind of a hair loss, its quite evident that you have iron deficiency. Eat a lot of beans. It will surely help.

5. OATMEAL
Rich in iron, fibre,zinc and omega 3.

6. EGGS
Eggs have a vitamin B called biotin which strengthens hair and brittle fingernails.

7. CARROTS
Prevents hair fall, increases blood circulation, makes hair lustrous and protects hair from external damages.

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

1st road trip – 1314kms – Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai

The journey is more important than the destination. I learnt driving 2 years ago (enrolled for a driving class 3 days after my 18th birthday) and since then I’ve driven on every possible type of road. But I wanted more. Flying by air didn’t excite me. I wanted to look out of the window to trees and open roads; not clouds. 2 weeks ago after lots of pleading or logical reasoning (as I like to put it), I finally convinced my parents to accompany me on a road trip to Goa. At first, they were a bit apprehensive of the length of the journey (owing to previous bad experiences with bus travelling), but then again, you gotta do what you want to do.

The route we selected was Mumbai – Pune – Satara – Kolhapur – Amboli Ghat – Baga, Goa. We only did one stopover for the night at Pune. The rest was a continuous drive with only a 45 minute halt for lunch before the start of the 73km long, 3.5 hour Amboli Ghat.


Note: Just after the food mall at Lonavala and before the start of the ghats, is a small s…

Of Goan Food, Drinks, ‘Feels’ and Stay

I went to Goa with my parents. And trust me, it was fun. For one, you really don’t have to worry about money when you’re out travelling, shopping, eating or drinking. Secondly, you have a 90% success rate of going to all the places YOU want to go to, instead of compromising for the sake of your friends.

Now I stayed in Goa for 4 nights, two of which were in Baga and the other two in Candolim. Both places were booked via Airbnb. One advice: Avoid booking a hotel room, even if it’s near a beach (I don’t understand people’s obsession with beaches; they’re quite dirty and crowded). Instead,.......
