Maybe the face is the first thing someone notices about you, but the hair is what makes your style complete.
Receiving compliments that you have a beautiful hair is always pleasant and meaningful.
The only person I trust with my hair is my hairdresser. She knows her job well and tells me different tips and tricks how to improve the health of my hair.
When she is not satisfied how my hair feels and looks, she is so judgmental and mad at me.
She always tells me that the hair is the soul of your health. There are numerous things your hair says, but people are not aware of it.
I decided to do a basic research about what my hair tells me and I found interesting things.
Let’s check them out.
Thinning Means Stress
The hair stops growing naturally. After that, it starts to fell. The stress is here to disrupt that process and make it force it to fell while it’s still growing.
That’s the reason why there are people who have bald spots on their head.
The solution is simple. Try to control your stress and make a strategy how to release it.
Dull, Brittle Hair Means Nutrition Problems
Yes. Your hair can tell you when you have problems with the food you eat.
“If you’re eating a highly processed diet, any nutrients you do get are shuttled to your body’s crucial operations, like your heart and other organs.” says Wendy Bazilian, a dietitian.
If you look closely at what she says, the nutrients you need for healthy and beautiful hair won’t get to your hair. One bad meal won’t damage the hair. The habit of eating junk food will make it dull.
Dehydration is another reason why your hair acts strangely. Maybe you don’t know this, but your hair is ¼ water. It’s the primary energy source for hair cells, and you need to recharge them occasionally.
Diet and hydration are the perfect plans for healthy hair.
Crown Hair Loss means Too Much Dihydrotestosterone
Noticing that you lose clumps around your crown and gain fat around your stomach, you might want to blame DHT.
There is an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase that transforms testosterone into DHT. It happens in men. Some people are sensitive to DHT, and the hormone attacks the follicles while producing crown hair loss.
It might be rare for women, but a hormone called DHEA is doing the same. It converts testosterone into DHT and provokes hair loss.
If you want to block DHT and its effects, you should include these foods in your diet:
- Green tea
- Saw palmetto
- Giant dodder
- Pumpkin seed
Seemingly Random Bald Patches means Trichotillomania
Trichotillomania is a strange condition. It’s an impulse control disorder and usually, strikes during moments of stress or perceived failure.
If you notice bald patches on your head when you are calm, try to remember all the things you do with your hands during these stressful moments.
