Gray Hair Shampoo: The best treatment for your hair.Written by G Marwick
Just because you have Gray hair doesn’t mean you should use any old shampoo. When your hair goes Gray it’s a sign that it needs special treatment as vital nutrients that produce pigment for your hair color are now no longer as healthy as they use to be.
So what should you look for in a shampoo when deciding on best treatment for your hair? Gray hair will usually be dry so you need a shampoo that will bring back moisture in your hair as well as replace vital nutrients that are lacking. There are many shampoos on market that treat thinning, dry, brittle and oily hair; however there are not many that claim to treat gray hair.
If you are looking for a shampoo that is going to treat your Gray hair as well as return your hair to its natural color or at least darken it to some degree then you need to have a very specific shampoo. Do not go for a shampoo that promises to bring back your natural hair color in one or two washed as this means that shampoo contains a lot of dye and will do nothing for condition of your hair. Most people want a shampoo that will gradually change color of their hair over time so that it is not too noticeable or immediately obvious.
When our hair goes gray it is because cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes”, stop producing pigment and result is a transparent hair. The transparent hair against your healthier darker hair gives appearance of Gray hair. In reality hair is not Gray but transparent. When we reach this stage its because our hair is no longer as healthy as it use to be so we need to treat it in such a way that we replace what it has lost. Although we have mentioned main cause of hair going Gray it is also important to remember that lack of nutrients such as B12 and Omegas 3’s are major contributors of hair going Gray.
What you need to know about – helping senior citizensWritten by Mansi gupta
Introduction The baby boomers is population which haven taken birth after second world war till 1965 when there was a tremendous increase in birth rate due to social and economic development in USA. Now this population is going into old age and thus bringing a burden to nation as country has to take care of not only food and shelter but also medical care. Rather medical care is in a way more important as they are prone to many diseases not only infectious because of their lowered immunity but also non –communicable ones such as Diabetes Mellitus, Myocardial Infarction, Stroke, etc. not to speak of those other mental disorders such as Depression, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.
Current problem There is more than 35million population in USA that is more than 65 years as per latest Census Bureau report. This is nearly 12 % of whole population and this is supposed to more than double in next 50 years or so requiring nation provide for their well-being. At present, it is said, that disabled and elderly account for only around 20% of Medicaid spending but they account for more than 75% of Medicaid spending on prescription medicines. There is yet another set of problems. There is a progressive decline in renal function of elderly. The enzymes needed to metabolize drug are less and have they have sensitivity towards certain drugs. They also have lesser free fluid volume. These and many other factors make elderly especially susceptible for drug toxicity. Also adverse drug reactions are much more common in aged population than others.
Buying cheap drugs There are certain federal and other non-governmental plans available that help senior citizens to buy drugs cheaper. These are: 1.Medicaid When president Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare and Medicaid act in 1965 it marked a new era for health care in USA. For a minimum amount, which is called a co-payment or some deductions, one can avail this facility. Nearly all states provide this facility to their population. You just have to fulfill certain their requirements.
