DHA is good for you: No studies have shown that a damaged brain would repair itself better with fishoil but it cannot hurt to use it.

My friend have problem in hair ...he have gap in his head..so how to grow hair in that gap? Which food want to eat? Which oil is to use it?

None of that: Due to two possibilities - male pattern baldness developing or a localized fungal infection. Either way, see a local doctor (MD, western-trained, respected - not just any doctor in India). If due to infection, medicine can be given. If developing male-pattern baldness, can use medication for hair growth or get hair transplant. No food or oil will help this case. ...Read more

Can the ingredient Paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil in a hair stying product cause hair to thin or come out on the hairline or whole head? Thanks

Can the ingredient Paraffinum liquidum aka mineral oil in a hair stying product cause hair to thin or come out on the hairline or whole head? Thanks

I dont think good: Mineral oil is prob diff to get out, will block your pores and get stuck in hair follicles. Need a gentle cleaning agent not a lubricant. In upstate NY I had a patient who had arthritis in his knees and used WD40 on them. Prob not good to breathe that stuff. Hair needs to be cleaned without drying out. Scalp should be cleaned. Min Oil not the answer. ...Read more

I was told to rub coconut oil in my hair and scalp and massage it in the roots of my hairnbut i was wondering will that get into my head and affect me?
