    As for excessive dyeing, it is needless to mention how much that can be damaging for your hair in the long run, as they contain numerous chemicals that you otherwise would not even think about going near to. Do not dye unless you really have to, and take patch tests for allergies that many good hair color products offer before getting to use them. Apart from skin irritation, they can cause hair breakage, skin discoloration, and even cancer.

    Rather wash your hair daily and regularly, while massaging them carefully with shampoo and in one direction to avoid damage. Learn about your hair type and choose a shampoo with a compatible intensity with your hair type. Massage your scalp regularly, that will help in regulating your blood circulation and treat your hair with jojoba, coconut or Indian Gooseberry oil at least weekly before washing for their strength.

  • Strong Legs Make A Strong Body
    By Health Blog on March 16, 2009 | 5 Comments5 Comments  Comments

    Legs are very important parts of our body, and we use them all the time through the day. Bio mechanical experts suggest that during all sports legs bear the most pressure, and a successful athlete always has strong legs. Playing a tough set of tennis is an impossible task without strength in legs, while the wood and iron shots in a peaceful game golf are also heavily dependent upon your legs.

    Even if we put the sports aside, there are many other daily activities which all of us undergo without knowing how much stress we put on our legs.  Carrying our children, carrying school bag and emptying the garbage can are trivial occupations, but put immense strain on our legs. Owing to the constant use of our legs in so many activities, ensuring their strength should be our top priority.


    There are several effective and easy exercises to build leg muscles. Four of the most popular are lunges, squat, box jump and vertical leap, and if adopted properly the four combine to give magical strength to your legs.

    Box jump involves jumping on boxes of different heights and strengthen the hip and thigh muscles. Vertical jump exercise is about standing in front of a wall with your arms straight over your head. Then, you have to jump in the same position as high as possible and then mark the point on the wall that your finger tips touch, the higher you jump the better.

    Through daily leg exercise, you can build your core and hip, and add to the overall agility in your body.
