Many people think that only men suffer from hair loss. Women too suffer from hair loss – although there are more cases of men than women. It is more alarming for women because of tassels of hair washing down the drain. The sight of clogging hair will make you panic but you have to keep calm and not consider wigs.

Female hair loss is actually on the rise today whether hair thinning or hair loss. It is time that you need to know about hair loss for women.

What is normal?

You should know that hair loss is common and normal. According to hair experts, the normal falling out is from 1 to 100 hairs at any one time. If hairs fall out more than 100, thinning happens. You should not panic though. Men and women lose thickness as we age. If you are worried, you should go to a hair specialist here in Singapore right away. It is better to see the experts immediately because it can be reversed easier in its initial stages. These specialists will determine what is causing it and eventually make remedy.

There are different things causing hair loss. Experts think that it can be a combination of many things. One of the main causes of hair loss is stress. When the body is stressed out, it yields toxins that leads to imbalance and eventually decrease progesterone levels. This decreased progesterone levels can in fact cause hair loss. Other things that cause hair loss include thyroid disorder, poly cystic ovarian syndrome, crash diets, cancer treatments, autoimmune diseases and anaemia.

When should you fear?

As long as you shed not more than 100 hairs at one time, you are safe. If it is beyond that, you should be concerned. If there is an excessive hair loss that’s been going on for longer than three months, it needs to be addressed. It can be stress or as dire as an underlying disease.

What are the treatments for hair loss?

If you notice shedding more than the normal, it is very crucial that you go to hair experts right away. The first thing that should be determined is whether it is a symptom of an underlying disease or purely genetics. If there is a serious underlying condition, it should be treated so the hair loss can be upturned. Some treatments include surgical restoration, laser comb and topical treatments. There are things that you can do at home to minimize hair loss such as organic shampoo, balanced diet, massaging and the like.

Regret Sending a Text? Delete it With These Apps

 

Communication plays an important part in the conduct of our daily lives. Without it, the world will surely be in chaos. There are different mediums of communication. One can consider telephone, internet or mobile phones. The most convenient these days is sending text messages through mobile phones. Mobile phones ease the lives of everyone – with a touch of hand.

Having mobile phones and sending text messages readily can create problems if used wrongly. Sometimes text messages can be the source of misunderstanding especially if you sent it to the wrong person or it is the right person but it turned out you regretted sending it. Perhaps the most challenging scenario is sending something that you eventually regretted.

If you sent something that you do not mean, how you wish to take it all back. In the past, taking it back is not possible but the best thing that ever happened to text messaging is deleting it after sending in regret. This is called text remorse and it is popular among Singaporeans. Everyone experienced sending messages that was only a good idea at that time but eventually turned out to be the worse text message.

The text messages not thought before sending are devastating. If it involves work, you will surely have no work at the end of the day. If it is relationship, you will find yourself single at the end of the conversation. To avoid unpleasant episodes after sending text messages, you should learn to check thoroughly before actually sending it.

This seems to be an easy thing to say but sometimes it is hard to do. The good news is that there is an application now that can delete the message after your remorse. The app is called Privates. It promises to delete messages from the recipient’s phone even after you hit send. You can delete as long as the person did not read the messages yet.

The app has three security levels – mild, wild and insane. These security levels will delete unread messages after three, twelve or twenty four hours. The catch here is you should use the app to message people. For this, you need to be signed up. The greatest thing about this app is that it has security function that makes it difficult for someone to screen grab photos as well as some messages.

To date, this application is only available for iPhone users. Windows and Android users need not fret because developers will surely launch it in the near future.

12 Things Your Plumber Wish You Wouldn’t Do

When your home’s plumbing system is working properly, you don’t even care how you’re using it. But once trouble strikes, you are at the mercy of your plumbing contractor. Here are some things your plumber wish you knew about your plumbing system to avoid extensive plumbing problems.

1. Using Chemicals to Clear Drains

Skip using chemicals to unclog drains and pipes—they rarely get the all the way done. These commercial cleaners are usually too strong that they can ruin the pipes and the tools used to clear the clogs. To prevent stoppages in the first place, do not flush grease and hair down the drain.

2. You Don’t Know Where the Main Shut-Off Valve Is

Don’t be clueless of the location of the main water valve and the emergency shut-offs of your home’s water line. And while you’re at it, know how to turn on and off these valves. It’s easy to operate, but if you’d prefer to let a professional show you how, most plumbers in Singapore can provide inspection of emergency shut-off valves for free.

3. Trying to Fix the Problem Yourself

Avoid trying to fix any plumbing issue yourself, or hire an all-around handyman from an emergency plumbing contractor service in Singapore to do the job. Non-professionals have limited knowledge about the problem and may not accurately detect and fix the problem. Whereas with a professional and reliable plumber, you can be confident that issues will be diagnosed and fixed quickly and efficiently.

4. Using Drop-In Toilet Fresheners

Forget the drop-in toilet fresheners. While the blue water makes the toilet look clean, these tablets often have chemicals that wear out the working parts of the tank. Plus, as these fresheners disintegrate, they get stuck in the flush valve and eventually prevent the toilet from flushing.

5. Throwing Everything In the Toilet

Even if some items can be easily flushed, avoid throwing tissues, cotton balls, diapers and napkins into the toilet. Because these items do not disintegrate quickly, they will get stuck in the drain and eventually cause blockages. After use, throw your sanitary items in the garbage bin instead of flushing them down the toilet.

6. Overloading the Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal is a convenient kitchen tool, but it can easily be abused at times. If you put too much rubbish in it, the garbage can damage the blades and end up costing you quite a lot of money. Fibrous food debris, such as artichokes and celery, can cause major issues to your machine. As much as possible, slowly feed the rubbish into the disposal with running water.

7. Forgetting to Replace the Hoses

When you start noticing leaks or paddles of water somewhere near your washing machine hoses or any hoses you have at home, inspect your rubber hoses for any cracks or signs of damage. Avoid potential floods by replacing the hoses every five years, and go for stainless steel ones, as much as possible.

8. Fiddling With the Heater’s Pressure Valve

Do not drain the water heater or test the pressure and temperature valve yourself. Testing of the water heater should only be done by a professional plumber. If the valve is not removed properly, the pressure can disperse hot water that can cause serious skin burns.

9. Cramming Stuff Under the Sink

Those curved pipes under the sink, called drain traps, prevent sewer gases from entering your home, while letting waste water pass through. These traps connect to pipes with screw-on joints, making it easier for your plumber to remove the part when cleaning clogged drains. When these joints come lose or the drain pipes are damaged, it can lead to under-sink leaks. Prevent such leaks by keeping the area under your sink clutter-free. This means pulling cleaners, trash cans or fire extinguishers away from the area so that there’s nothing that will bump into the pipes.

10. Ignoring the Puddle of Water Around the Base of the Toilet

The water doesn’t have to be a lot. Just a small puddle or constant wetness around the base could mean failure of wax seal on the foot of the toilet. Though it doesn’t look too problematic, leaking water can damage your flooring tile, leading to moulds, rot and expensive repair. Ave yourself the trouble by letting it checked by a 24 hours plumber as soon as possible.

11. Skimping on Water Protection System

Do not skimp on water protection system. Invest on a good leak protection system that provides both a main water switch and an alarm if a leak occurs somewhere in your dishwasher, heater, sinks and other water outlets. Discuss this with your plumbing services company and ask for recommendations for this service.

12. Opting for Non-Professionals

Non-professional plumbers have no formal training about plumbing works; therefore, it’s not impossible for them to fail. And when this happens, the problem becomes worse, and you’re left with a bigger problem to fix. Since we all want to get the job done on the first try, which saves you time and money, contact only a professional plumbing contractor.

Plumbing services companies in Singapore are there to help you with the most inconvenient and complex plumbing works. Try to be aware of the common problems and prevent them before they arise by educating yourself of the right ways of treating your plumbing system.
