Foods That are Rich in Preventing Hairloss.

1.Salmon(Fish)

Hair is a protein fiber (as are nails), which means you need to eat protein to grow new strands and keep the existing ones strong. Protein is also required to produce keratin, a key structural component of hair.

A smart choice is marine-based protein, like salmon, which has been shown to boost hair health in women thanks to its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin content.

2.Honey

When used as a topical treatment, honey can improve the look of thinning hair. In a study of patients experiencing seborrheic dermatitis, which includes scaling, itching, and hair loss, those who applied a solution of 90% honey and 10% water to their scalp every other day for 4 weeks reported an improvement in hair loss at the end of the study.

3.Nuts and seeds

Some of the most promising research on reversing female-pattern hair loss was released in January 2015 in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Subjects in the study received a nutritional supplement containing omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids and antioxidants for 6 months. The results were overwhelmingly positive: After 6 months, 90% of the subjects reported a reduction in hair loss, 86% reported an improvement in hair growth, and 87% reported thicker hair.

To achieve similar results, eat nuts and seeds high in omega-3s and omega-6s, like walnuts, flaxseed, and oils such as grapeseed, sunflower, and sesame.

4.Spinach

One study found that women with hair loss have significantly lower iron and vitamin D2 levels than age-matched controls. Spinach is a good bet because it’s rich in iron and high in vitamin C, which aids in iron absorption. Toss a spinach salad with hardboiled eggs or mushrooms, both of which are loaded with vitamin D, to give yourself the best shot at slowing hair loss.

5.Oils

Pumpkin, rosemary, and coconut oils all act as nectar to the scalp. In one study, researchers gave men with hair loss 400 mg per day of pumpkin seed oil or a placebo for 24 weeks. Those who took the pumpkin seed oil experienced a 40% increase in hair growth.

And there’s something to be said for oils even when you don’t eat them: When used as a pre-wash and post-wash grooming product, coconut oil has been shown to protect hair against protein loss, and rosemary oil has been shown to increase hair growth comparable to minoxidil, the main ingredient in Rogaine and with less scalp itching.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 the Next Game to Get a Special Loot Crate and the First Woman Character

The “Call of Duty” franchise has had players (as soldiers) do battle underwater, shoot in outer space, wear jet packs and even attack zombies.

But for all the series’ fantasy warfare over the past dozen or so years, the game never imagined women as equal players on the battlefield. “Call of Duty,” instead, has long been considered a game for dudes who love their digital guns.

But that may be changing.

The release this week of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” marks a gender milestone for the Activision-published blockbuster series, one of the video game industry’s few household names. A female character is, for the first time, playable in the game’s core story.

Abby Brammell, the actress whose voice and likeness is used for the starring female role, recalls the day the game’s developers told her she was making “Call of Duty” history. “I was shocked,” she says.

She had to take a moment, she adds, “thinking of all the women who have ever sat down to play this game and … had to play as a man.”

What took so long?

Treyarch developers don’t speculate on the gender split of their games, but “Call of Duty” can be forgiven for following the guidelines of the real-life U.S. military, where the subject of women on the frontlines remains a national debate. Only recently, however, have mainstream video game publishers begun to diversify their characters.

“We probably used to have, on hardcore games, an audience maybe 20 years ago that was 5% women. It’s probably 25% now,” says Michael Pachter, an analyst at investment firm Wedbush Securities. “I think Activision is smart to try and appeal to that.”

What’s more, recent figures on the industry at large estimate that about 44% of game players are women, and developers, even those who have made games long drenched in machismo, are taking notice.

“It is absolutely a myth that this is a game for boys,” says Dan Bunting, a developer with Treyarch, the Activision studio that developed “Black Ops 3.”

In addition to “Black Ops 3,” several big-budget games this holiday season have given women prominent roles, including “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate,” “Halo 5: Guardians,” “Fallout 4,” “Star Wars: Battlefront” and, of course, “Rise of the Tomb Raider.” While the video game industry is not yet close to reaching gender parity, there is now a visible effort to shed the image of games as a boy’s club.

“It’s really exciting to see more and more female characters put out there as not the prize at the end of the game but as the participant,” says Rachel Kimsey, who voices one of the nonplayable female characters in “Blacks Ops 3.”

“I think a lot of people in the game creation side are really excited about opening up the world to female players and female gamers,” she adds. “I don’t think it’s going to take too much longer for that to be even more widely accepted.”

For “Black Ops 3,” a game set in a future in which human soldiers are augmented with cyborg-like technology, developers say they didn’t want to be on the wrong side of history. Set in 2065, the game takes place in a universe in which a large air-defense system, designed to nullify drone attacks, has placed a newfound importance on foot soldiers.

“Our military advisors were saying, ‘Listen, the role of women in the future, especially in the battlefield, is going to be more prevalent than ever,’ ” says Jason Blundell, a director on the game.

“That was a progressive step that we’re seeing in our militaries, and when we start looking ahead to 2065, which is when our story takes place, it almost seemed like it would be ignoring the pointers that we were following in all other aspects to not include women,” he adds.

In recent years, “Call of Duty” games have shifted their focus away from the real wars of the past to imaginary ones of the future. They still mix arcade-like action with the topical. “Black Ops 3,” for instance, begins with some harrowing scenes of torture and talk of terrorist organizations. Yet there are also vicious robots, and when our hero — a nameless protagonist who is meant to stand in for the player — loses his or her limbs, squeamish viewers will want to look away from the screen.

While players can choose to play as a male or female (the male character is voiced by Ben Browder), Blundell says there was only one script.

“We wrote a gender-neutral script. In other words, you basically write a single role and don’t think about whether the character is male or female. If you think about the character being male or female, you pander to the sexes,” he says. “You want to be masculine for the male, or more caring and more feminine for the female. By writing it gender neutral and letting each actor perform the role, they brought their gender’s properties to the piece.”

Brammell says she auditioned for “a really strong feminine character” and was told on the first day of work of the importance of her role.

“The responsibility was to women,” she says, “to portray the power and the strength and the intelligence and the sensitivity that a feminine soldier has. Clearly they’ve been under-represented, right? I was so honored that I was the chosen one to carry this portrayal forward and to expand the culture’s idea of what it means to be a soldier in battle. It is not tied to the masculine, the man.”

“Black Ops 3,” says Pachter, is estimated to sell between 18 million and 20 million copies before the end of the year. Last year’s “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” also released in November, was 2014’s top-selling video game, according to the trade group Electronic Software Assn. On Friday, Activision Blizzard announced the creation of its own movie and television studio in an effort to bring “Call of Duty,” as well as other properties, to screens big and small.

With that size of an audience, Kimsey says “Call of Duty’s” newfound gender diversity cannot be underestimated.

“I think it’s going to assimilate really quickly,” she says. “People are going to get used to seeing a woman running around and doing the job and getting it done and advancing through the game. That alone will start to change the perception of female players in this world.”

10 Essential Hair Care tips for Men and Woman This Summer.

summer Ruins up your hair and leads to hair Damage, here are some tips which helps to protect your hair.

rose-water-for-hair-care

1. Cover up!

Use a scarf or hat to cover your head when you’re out in the sun. Not only does this provide extra UV protection, but it also helps your scalp to retain moisture. A hat reduces damage caused by wind, especially if your hair is prone to tangling, and protects colour-treated hair.

2. Put your hair up in loose, comfortable styles

A messy braid is ideal for keeping your hair under control and minimizing exposure to the sun. Tight hairstyles can be damaging because they tend to pull and tear hair, especially if your hair is dry from the summer heat.

3. Wash less often

Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. Use a homemade or natural dry shampoo, such as cornstarch, in place of regular shampoo to go a bit longer without washing. Another quick fix is to dab a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel along your scalp to dissolve excess oil.

4. Reduce the heat

Try to blow-dry your hair as little as possible. It is already exposed to a significant amount of heat on a daily basis in the summer, and it will probably air-dry quickly anyways, so give the blow dryer a break and go au naturel if you can. Avoid flat-irons, too, as they will do further damage to already-dry hair. Plus, a sleek hairstyle only makes that frizz stand out more.

5. Condition always

Rinse with apple cider vinegar diluted in water for a quick natural conditioner. Use some coconut oil or shea butter (careful with this, since it can be heavy) to smooth, de-frizz, and moisturize your locks after washing. The oil will give some shine and, if you have wavy hair, create natural, air-dried curls. Try a natural deep conditioning treatmentonce a week to get that extra bit of moisture into your hair.

6. No more swimmer’s hair

If you’re a blond who turns green after a dip in the pool, try rinsing out your wet hair with ¼ cup apple cider vinegar and 2 cups water to get rid of discolouration and dullness. It helps to get your hair wet before entering the water because then it won’t absorb as much chlorine.

7. Add some sunscreen

There are shampoos that contain UV protection, but most of those are chemical-laden, conventional shampoos that I’d recommend avoiding. One quick way to add some protection is to run your hands lightly through your hair after applying sunscreen to your body.

8. Try a hot oil rinse

Coconut, olive, and avocado oils are good at penetrating the hair shaft. Shampoo hair as usual, then work in oil from ends to roots. Rinse, then condition as usual. Your hair should feel moisturized afterward, but not greasy.

9. Fake that beach look if you haven’t been there

One blogger recommends this homemade sea salt spray, made with 1 tsp sea salt and 1 tsp coconut oil, mixed with water in a small spray bottle. Spray and scrunch to get that desirable wavy beach look. The coconut oil will counteract the dryness of the salt.

10. Use a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush

Avoid pulling anything through your hair when it’s wet, since that’s when it’s most susceptible to breaking. Wide-tooth combs are most gentle for untangling hair, as brushes can pull and tear when they snag strands.
