Heart To Heart

Q: I am a 15-year-old girl. I have really short hair which are extremely dry. I want to use a conditioner but I fear it will make it into my scalp as that should be avoided. Please suggest an alternative for a conditioner. Fariha
A:
A good way to condition your short hair will be to massage them with coconut oil at least an hour before you wash them. Besides leave on conditioners will be great for your short hair, they are easily available in different names and you can use them to moisturise your hair and fight dryness.


Q: I am a 27 years old woman and have awfully puffy eyes for a long period of time. The under eye bags look very ugly and give the impression of sickness. I look tired all the time. Please help me get rid of them. Aisha
A:
Extreme allergies, thyroid issues and several medical issues can cause swelling and puffiness around the eyes. Maybe one of these is the reason for your under eye bags. First get a check-up done by a good doctor, and if everything is fine, try consulting a good dermatologist, who will provide you with the appropriate treatment for puffy eyes.


Q: I am 20 years old and have a problem with my toes. They are much darker than the rest of my feet and appear quite hideous. The darker skin is also a little thicker than my normal skin. I have tried everything to tackle it but nothing has worked. Please help! Sajda
A:
if you have tried everything than it is better that you take help form an expert dermatologist, as he/she will only be able to help you, because extremely dark knuckles and toes could be a sign of an ailment, which can only be identified after physical examination. In the meantime, treat your feet delicately and do not use any harsh chemicals on them.
