The thinning may need between three and six weeks to appear. If you notice your hair has begun to thin, try to remember any stressful situation that happened not long ago. Once you’ve determined the root cause, try to find a way to deal with stress better in the future and avoid similar situations. Remember that stress can lead to much more serious complications!
- Dull, Brittle Hair – Nutrition Problems
Nutrition expert Wendy Bazilian says that “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.” This means that all those nutrients which your hair needs to stay healthy won’t get there and this leads to dull, brittle hair. It’s not like one hamburger and a soda can lead to this, but if you eat junk food habitually it will inevitably happen. Wendy adds that a dietary fat deficiency can actually prevent your hair from absorbing nutrients like vitamin D. Consume plenty of healthy fats, such as omega-3 fatty acids and mono-saturated fats. Pay attention to your water intake as well because dehydration can lead to hair loss. Your hair is made of ¼ water and is the primary energy source for hair cells.
If you want to have healthy, long hair you need to eat healthy and drink plenty of water.
