Hairline International Launches Comprehensive Book With Nutritional and Lifestyle Advice on Hair Loss Prevention and Management

Picture 1

Bangalore, August 25th, 2016: Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic unveiled a book titled Prevention and Management of Hair Loss, a Guide to Nutritional and Lifestyle Factors, recently. This book has been co-authored by Dr. Premalatha, Dermatosurgeon, Hairline International and Dr. Imtiaz, Dermatologist, Hairline International.

The focus of the book is on the causes of hair loss from nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle factors. It also provides comprehensive solutions for prevention and management of hair loss in relation to nutrition and lifestyle changes. The book covers everything from the causes of hair loss to its medical management, tips to combat a sedentary life style, healthy hair care habits and delicious recipes to include in your diet for healthy hair.

Hairline International is involved in extensive research projects towards the creation of better procedures for its clientele. In the course of its research, Hairline International has found that a variety of lifestyle factors, also known as behavioural factors or health related habits, play a major role in overall health and well­being.

Speaking on this research and the book, Dr. Premalatha says, “An important aspect of lifestyle factors is that one can modify them, if they are causing ill health. Unhealthy lifestyle practices along with causing diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular illnesses, can also profoundly affect hair quality. Thus, a healthy lifestyle is an essential pre­requisite for healthy hair”.

The research, as well as the book, lists out certain ‘bad health behavior’ such as constant stress, sedentary lifestyle, vices such as smoking, drinking and substance abuse, irregular sleep patterns, unhealthy hair care practices and an unhealthy diet.

Dr. Imtiaz says, “Nutritional inadequacies are a wide-spread population problem in India. During the evaluation of patients with hair fall, several blood investigations brought out iron profiles, hemoglobin, Vitamin B12 deficiencies, along with hormonal variations and a higher incidence of diabetes, altered lipid profile and the like”. All of this has been documented in detail in the book, giving the reader an in-depth understanding of how nutrition and lifestyle inadequacies can manifest itself in the form of hair loss.

“We understand, and what people need to understand too, is that the first step towards a solution to such hair problems, is always prevention rather than a cure”, said Bani Anand, Founder and Managing Director of Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic. While unveiling the book “Implementing a healthy lifestyle will reduce the incidence of several diseases. This has motivated us to come up with book where all the information needed to make an informed decision is easily available”.

The book is available at all leading book stores.

“Share your Ride, Free the Road” Phoenix Marketcity takes art route to highlight need for “Car Pooling”

image002

Bangalore,  25th  August 2016: Phoenix Marketcity, Bengaluru’s international shopping and lifestyle destination launched two public Art Sculptures crafted by Amarnath Sharma to create awareness about the importance of Car Pooling.

These art installations will be India’s largest on the subject.

Art is one of the most powerful tools for visual communication. Both installations “In-transit” & “Make Over”are 30 feet by 12 feet and 12 feet by 4 feet in size respectively. The public art installations will aim to do two things –one, use the power of art to send subliminal messages to people who come into contact with it and reiterate the importance of Car Pooling and two, have the potential to become landmark installations in Bengaluru and bringing art to the public. These art installations have been curated for Phoenix Marketcity by Mr. Sachin Kaluskar and developed by Baroda based artist Amarnath Sharma.

Mr. Gajendra Singh Rathore, Centre Director said “Phoenix Marketcity, Bengaluru constantly tries to create awareness on various social causes and environmental sustainability initiatives for our patrons. Being one of the best shopping and entertainment destination, we believe in promoting causes which require immediate attention. We have always favoured the artistic route to do this and are happy to contribute to raising public consciousness wherever we can.”

Mr. Sachin P. Borpade , Assistant Commissioner of Police, Traffic East said, “Traffic Jams are a common scenario in Bengaluru and other metros.  Along with being inconvenient to the public, frequent traffic jams also cause huge dents in our pockets and on the environment. Carpooling is one of the ways in which people can benefit both as individuals and the community as a whole. We are delighted with the initiative from Phoenix Marketcity where art is being used to send the message to their large customer base.”

Curators’ note about the installations:

1. In-transit:

In-transit is not just an Art Installation; it’s the mirror to society. It talks about present conditions and future situations if we do not start using methods like car pools to address the problem.  The vertical wall is full of colourful cars moving in different directions. This situation is the future of our present condition.

2. “Makeover”

‘Makeover’ delves into the concept of Jam versus freedom, urging us to take necessary action TODAY. The road jammed with cars is going upwards at 60 degree angle and ends abruptly. Our uncertain future is waiting for us at the end of the road. Cars are falling from the top of the road and getting converted into scrap pieces.
