Here Is What Your HAIR Has To Say About Your HEALTH!
Our hair isn’t there to make us look amazing, but it has more important purpose, to show the health or some possible condition we aren’t aware of. The hair shows a lot of issues inside our bodies. In the following you can read and find some hair troubles and interpretation and what you should do about it.
-Thinning means stress
It is normal that your hair falls out and it begins long after it stopped to grow. But in some cases it starts to thin in the same time as it starts to grow and the main cause for that is the stress. The stress is disrupting the normal process and people end up with patches and bald spots. If you deal with this problem, you should find the root cause, and try to find a way to cope with the stress and try to avoid stressful situations.
-Brittle and dull hair means nutrition problems
Wendy Bazilian, the nutrition expert says that if we eat highly processed diet, the nutrients are shuttled to the most crucial operations of the body (heart and other organs). This leads to brittle, dull hair. She says that dietary fat deficiency prevents the hair from absorbing the nutrients like vitamin D. You should consume mono-saturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Also, you should drink more water because the dehydration leads to hair loss. The hair is consisted of ¼ of water and it is the hair’s primary source of energy.
-A crown hair loss means too much DHT (dihydrotestosterone)
Gaining fat around the stomach and losing patches of hair around the crown are indicators of non-normal high levels of DHT. 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme, turns the testosterone into dihydrotestosterone in men. Some men are sensitive to this hormone and it can attack the hair follicles which results in crown hair loss. It also happens in women as a result of the DHEA hormone, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone.
These foods are natural DHT inhibitors:
-Pumpkin seeds, giant dodder, saw palmetto and green tea.
-A random bald patch means trichotillomania
It is a condition where people are compelled to pull the hair out. It is impulsive control disorder and it flares up during failure or stress period.
Those who suffer do not realize that they are doing it as it occurs unintentionally.
