first_imgMAVERICKS BARBERS: The male grooming experts at Mavericks Barbershop Letterkenny share tips for slowing down or preventing a common issue for men – a receding hairline.After our last Mavericks column where we address the 5 most common mistakes made by balding men, concerning styling, we found it intrigued quite a few men and prompted the questions “what can I do to stop going bald?” Or “is there any cures for baldness?” Today we will park the fact that a percentage of us are genetically set up to go bald whether we like it or not. If we are set up to go bald, what can we do to slow it down and if we were more fortunate with the genes then what can we do to prevent it??? Manage Your StressMajor stress in your life can actually cause up to 40% hair loss. Your body reacts to stressful events in different ways, however it can actually be a leading cause of thinning hair. Especially if it’s prolonged! Figure out a way to manage your stress levels and get a balance in your life this is arguably the biggest step you can take to combat a receding hairline.Eat Healthy If you eat unhealthily, it’ll show in your hair. Not just your hair, we’re sure everyone has been a victim of overly oily skin after eating junk food. Ensure you get the right mix of vitamins to help with your overall well-being, however it’s good to have some vitamins that directly affect hair health.StylingIf you style your hair daily, you could be causing your hair to thin prematurely. Most of us don’t realise how gentle we have to be, so if you’re pulling your hair into style, or combing it whilst wet can actually pull your hair out. We also know the ‘man bun’ has been a popular trend, however pulling your hair back can cause long term issues. To combat this issue, make sure you towel dry your hair before styling and use a wider toothed comb or brush if you have concerns of thinning hair. We’d also recommend not washing your hair daily, this allows your natural oils to build up and strengthen the hair, however this does not mean never washing your hair. Maybe opt for every third day or every second, depending the work you do or your fitness regime. Likewise, you can trust me when I say, us Mavericks will certainly not complain if you wash it before you visit us…… The SunWhile we are experiencing this wonderful spell of weather in Donegal I’m sure a few boys are asking themselves the question will uv exposure affect my hair loss??? No need to worry gentlemen, the sun does not affect hair loss in any form, just make sure you get the sun cream on and protect that skin of yours!!!Why not call into Mavericks Traditional Barbershop on the Lower Main Street, Letterkenny and treat yourself to the best male grooming experience a man can get.

first_imgThe Chhatra JD(U), student wing of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumars party, won the president’s post in the Patna University Students Union (PUSU) elections, the results of which were declared in the early hours of of Thursday. Putting up its best-ever performance, the student body of JD(U) also won the treasurer’s post while the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of RSS bagged the other key offices of vice president, general secretary and joint secretary. This is only the second time in the history of Chhatra JD(U) when its candidates have won key posts in PUSU elections. Previously, the student body had won the joint secretarys post in 2012. The PUSU polls this year witnessed fierce campus rivalry between the Chhatra JD(U) and the ABVP, with allegations of JD(U) national vice-president Prashant Kishor meddling in the elections putting the partys relations with its ally BJP under strain. Incidentally, both Mr. Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi a senior BJP leader had been PUSU leaders.Hailing the victory of Mohit Prakash and Kumar Satyam for the posts of president and treasurer respectively, JD(U) spokesman Neeraj Kumar tweeted “poll results have placed a mirror before those who have become synonymous with lumpenisation of politics. Patna University students have voted in favour of politics that is free from corruption and imbued with the virtues of character and good conduct.” For the other top posts, the ABVP winners are Anjana Singh (vice president), Manikant Mani (general secretary) and Raja Ravi (joint secretary). Polling had taken place for the PUSU elections on Wednesday and counting of votes continued through the night.last_img read more

She received a medical timeout so a trainer could check her pulse and blood pressure and wrap her in an ice vest before she returned to the court. Cornet was able to finish the match, losing 7-5, 6-4. But she later said it was “dangerous” to play in that kind of heat.“The (official) limit of not playing the match is really high. I think this limit should be a little bit lower because playing in this condition is not nice for anyone,” she said. “I would never give up because of (the heat), that’s for sure. But you push your body so hard, you almost feel like you’re on the edge.”Tournament director Craig Tiley defended the response of officials to the extreme heat on both Thursday and Friday, saying “we start the event with this set of rules and policies in place, and in the interest of fairness, can’t change them halfway through.”“Protecting our players and the fairness of the competition is paramount in these conditions, which we acknowledge can be challenging,” he said, adding the extreme heat policy would be reviewed after the tournament to see if adjustments need to be made.Petra Martic, who won a two-hour, third-round match against Luksika Kumkhum during the hottest part of the day on Friday, said she got blisters on her feet from the sizzling court and had to take painkillers after the second set.ADVERTISEMENT France’s Alize Cornet is attended to by a trainer and tournament staff after suffering from the heat during her third round match against Belgium’s Elise Mertens at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, Friday, Jan. 19, 2018.
