Helpful Tips For Healthy Hair
Bad hair care practices can leave your hair dull, unmanageable
and with horrible split ends.
Choose the right shampoo for your type of hair (ask your
stylist). Normal, dry or chemically treated hair will benefit
from a weekly intensive conditioning treatment. Always comb
intensive treatment through to the ends of your hair. Cover
with plastic and a towel around the hair for up to 30 minutes
(to help trap heat in). If you are short on time look for an
instant conditioner to use after each shampoo.
Treatments are a MUST at least twice a month.
Let your hair air dry as often as you can.
A balanced diet including fresh fruit and vegetables help to
ensure your hair receives all it's vitamins and minerals which
it requires for healthy growth. If you know your diet is not
quite as good, supplement with vitamins and minerals. They
must both be used together to benefit your hair and body.
Consult a nutritionist if you are feeling uncomfortable
choosing your own.
Don't be surprised if your favourite shampoo doesn't always
ensure good hair days. Environmental changes throughout the
year can leave your hair dry, greasy and with fly aways. It is
a good idea to change shampoo's when you feel the need at
least every couple of months)
are very good as a preventative measure for men, keeps those
prostrate problems from invading their bodies.
We Grumble A lot!
Dear friends, Hope you all are fine. Vacations have come to an
end. Seems that they took wings and here we are with the
schools reopening. Wish you all good luck as you start your
In Holy Quran, humans have been said to be “un thankful”. It
is one of the shortcomings of human race that have been told
in Quran. We often find ourselves grumbling and complaining.
It seems that men would still complain if they had all the
maximum eases of the world. A writer in a magazine analyzed
this. According to him babies have possibly the easiest life
around. They have least worries. They don’t have to attend
schools or go to work in offices. They don’t have to deal with
bills and other household chores. They sleep and wake at their
own free will. They don’t even have to walk to toilet because
their mothers look after their toilet needs. They get fed and
lulled in arms. Infact, babies have a worry free and the
easiest life. Yet they seem to cry the most. It is paradoxical
that the ones who have to do the least and have the most ease
are the greatest grumblers.
We complain of the petty things that we do not have access to.
But I am sure that most of us are more blessed than half of
the population of the world. Many in the world do not have
clean water to drink. We flush with clean water. There are
many starving to death and we have dishes to name at our
dining tables. We have been blessed with health. There are
many lying in hospitals suffering through curable and
incurable diseases. We have roof for shelter and there are
many who have no home to go. We have clothes and shoes to wear
and there are so many who have only rags to use and no shoes.
When we are in amidst of problems, we loose determination and
start complaining to God. We find comparing ourselves with the
ones that seem to be doing better than us. There is an innate
tendency to complain. The fact is that all the hard and easy
times come from Allah. He puts his men into troubles to
increase their reward in Aakhirat”. The exams from Creator are
not meant to hurt us. He loves us a lot. He sends these tests
to wipe off the sins that we have committed off and on. Holy
Prophet (peace be upon him) said that Allah rewards “momin”
for every little worry that he has to bear. It can be as
trivial as his searching for a thing in one pocket while it
was in the other pocket.
So learn to be thankful to your Benefactor. May Allah give us
a “thanking” tongue and a heart full of patience and

understand those with whom you disagree, and it will take
you far. Seriously investigate and consider viewpoints that
differ with your own.
Look for a reason behind the unreasonable. Look for a
purpose behind the ridiculous. You do not
have to agree in order to understand. You do not have to
give in to another viewpoint in order to gain something of
positive value from it.
The world is
rich with diverse perspectives. By opening your experience
to that richness, you strengthen your own perspective.
you're afraid to question your beliefs or challenge your
opinions, then what value do they really have? By looking
beyond your opinions, you make those opinions more
compelling. You will cease to merely believe, and begin to

Butt, 15 is not profiled here because she achieved
6A’s and 2 Bs including couple of stars in her IGCSE,
now studying hard for A levels. Neither she is profiled
because she is Tahir Bhai's daughter. And certainly not
in this prime space of our newsletter because she is the
youngest CP founding member. She is also not here
because her contribution being a team member since she
was just 7 when she did her first web graphics and created
children section for
ContactPakistan. Is it not a good idea to profile team
member who excelled in all fields of her life in this
So why is she profiled?
Along the long road of our journey
towards uniting each and every Pakistani which Mahreen
(Mani) took along with other team members her contribution
never ended with just children section. Due to her
fondness in digital graphics number of times she created
graphics for global site and regional publications.

member and had no tools to make the dream come true, she
came forward learned the techniques required to build
this project and gave us world's first virtual blood
But worry no more…. We have now Mani around who would
help us designing such noble projects in future as well.

Another reason of profiling this young lady is to prove to those who think internet
and related activities are bad. Mahreen spends most of
her leisure time on internet in a controlled
environment. Please do let your children use internet.
Remember every thing has two dimensions. One bad and the other good, it is up to our knowledge and wisdom to
decide what is right and what is wrong.....
Please do consider, we are
already couple of centuries behind!

As a parent it’s our duty to
take care of our precious children. Do read this article in
the interest of your Child.
“Strabismus” which we call in Urdu, Bhainga pun.
Strabismus is a misalignment of the eyes caused by an
imbalance in the muscles of the eye. A newborn baby’s eyes
commonly and normally stroll. But, within a few weeks he
learns to move his eyes together, and the strolling of eyes
should disappear within a few months. If this irregular
strolling continues, or if your baby’s eyes don’t turn in the
same direction, the muscles that control the eye movement on
one side may be weaker than on the other. This condition is
called Strabismus. This condition makes impossible for
the eye to focus on the same spot at the same time. If your
child is born with strabismus, it’s important to be realigned
early in life so he can focus them together on a single
object. Some children look as though they have strabismus
because of the way their faces are structured, but in fact
their eyes are perfectly united. These children may have a
flat nasal bridge and broad skin folds along side the nose,
termed epicanthus, which can distort the appearance of
the eye. This is called pseudostrabismus, which means
“false eyeturn”. The child’s vision is not affected, and in
most cases, as the child grows and the nasal bridge becomes
more prominent, the child loses the pseudostrabismic
The treatment of strabismus usually involves
exercise, eyeglasses, eye drops or surgery.
If your child needs an operation, the surgery is usually safe
and effective, and it is often done between six and eighteen
months of age. May be your child need more than one surgical
procedure. After surgery, your child still may need glasses.
Because of the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of
the true eyeturn or true strabismus, if you have any doubt
that your baby’s eyes may not be perfectly aligned and working
together, it should be brought to the attention of your
pediatrician, who can best determine whether your baby has an

I simply love RCP programming but one point
that I would like to share with CP team is that why don't we
have more flavors of programs. Programs such as talking to
professionals and sharing their experience with us. For
example a doctor can help us learn more about taking care of
small babies etc. Please consider my wish a request and do
some thing about it. Thank you. Shabeer Shah, Jeddah.
Dear Shabeer bhai, thanks for your
comments. Firstly note that we can offer 24 hours live
programming provided community participates. When we started
RCP the same was conveyed to our community to enjoy the
facilities to share their knowledge and talent worldwide. Our
doors are always open for those who like to perform. So more
participation of community thus more programs to enjoy. About
your second question, your mail has given us a good idea,
thanks for your community service. Our 1st Sept. programming
includes a new program "Zaroori Baat", in this program we will
invite Pakistani professionals to share their knowledge with
rest of us. Hope you like it.

AROMATHERAPY - Natural
Healing LEMON - Essential Oil
Lemons are rich in Vitamins A, B and C
and are an essential ingredient in cookery worldwide. They are
also a popular home-remedy component for colds, flu and
indigestion. The essential oil of lemon is not the same as the
lemon juice in its properties. It is extracted from the skin
and rind of lemons and has anti-anemic, antiseptic,
anti-microbial, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-viral,
antispasmodic, anti-infectious, detoxifying, diuretic,
digestive, hypotensive and anti-aging properties. Lemon
essential oil is also good for both dry and oily skin and
helps against acne, boils, corns, warts and brown patches.
When added to shampoos, conditioners or hair oils, helps
promote hair growth. This oil is also beneficial for
arthritis, rheumatism and gout. It improves blood circulation,
helps eliminate toxins from the body and lowers high blood
pressure. It also has haemostatic properties, which means that
it helps stop bleeding, whether it be nosebleed or hemorrhage
in any part of the body. Lemon essential oil stimulates the
white blood cells in the body and boosts the body’s immune
system that is why it is so effective against colds, flu, sore
throat, sinus and respiratory infections. When diffused in the
room of a sick person, it dis-infects the room, builds the
patient’s immunity and cheers him up. Additionally, it is also
effective against constipation, loss of appetite, stomach
ulcers, indigestion and obesity. Its stimulating and
clarifying properties help combat against depression, anger,
anxiety, lack of concentration, confusion, headaches and
sleeplessness. Lemon essential oil stimulates the brain and
sense organs and helps calm bodily stress by boosting the
action of the parasympathetic nervous system.
CAUTION: Keep away from the reach of children, always use
diluted in a carrier oil, do not take internally, may irritate
sensitive and damaged skin, use in small doses to avoid
sensitivity, slightly photo-toxic therefore the skin should
not be exposed to sun or UV rays for 12 hours after use,
should be avoided if user is allergic to lemons, cosmetics or
