This column offers activities and advice for day care and preschools, as well as other youth programs. Head lice are a concern that affects programs with small children, schools and camp facilities. If a child has head lice, they are not allowed to attend school until the nits are cleared up.

Forget the myth that frequent trims make your hair grow faster. Human hair grows approximately half an inch a month, no matter how much you cut it. You may see slightly faster growth in summer, or if you take biotin supplements, but it’s hormones that control growth, not your stylist’s scissors. Trims can get rid of split ends, however, and that makes hair look great.

Are you getting enough B6 in your diet? This vitamin is quite critical when trying to avoid dandruff. So be sure to take it regularly. By taking a daily vitamin or eating food rich in vitamin B6 you can help prevent dandruff.

If you are a girl and you wear a lot of makeup and you aren’t going anywhere for the weekend or the whole day, don’t put any cover-up on. Give your skin a chance to breathe for a while.

However, this isn’t always the case, as hair loss can begin even earlier or later than this. If you lose your hair prematurely, do not worry because eventually you learn to do your hair.

Frequent trimming will be helpful against split ends (which, by the way, will not be cured by applying even the best-promoted best natural shampoos!), but it won’t influence the hair growth. Cut it or not, your hair will grow at the same speed, anyway – a bit faster in the summer, and a bit slower in the winter, when all processes within the body tend to slow down.

As a bit of a surprise, you’ll want to avoid steam rooms and saunas. The idea is to stay cool. The reason for this is that when people sweat, they have a tendency to constantly wipe that sweat away. It is this habit of wiping that can block pores which then accelerates the appearance of pimples and blackheads. If and when you sweat, always blot with a clean tissue or towel. Also, be sure to wash after you exercise to remove the pore blocking blend of sweat, bacteria and dead skin cells released through friction.

Following these simple guidelines will help you. But you need to cure the root cause of your problem. Adopting a Natural treatment plan will help to reset your inner balance and bring your body back to its natural balance.
