How to Remove bad hair Forever
There’s more to having healthy hair than brushing it every night. It’s mostly to do with what is happening on the inside, so by getting healthier from the inside out, you’ll be looking and feeling better from head to toe.
The cause of hair issues – ranging from thinning and brittle hair to alopecia and balding – vary from individual to individual but are most commonly caused by hormonal or digestive issues.
More often than not, too much dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the culprit behind male–pattern balding. DHT is an androgen produced by testosterone and critical for male traits and reproductive ability. Oxidative damage caused by factors such as poor diet, alcohol, smoking and stress, can cause DHT to shrink the size of the hair follicles, reducing the ability of hair strands to grow resulting in baldness, especially in males. Similarly, as women also produce testosterone, hormonal imbalances resulting in excessive DHT androgens can cause female hair loss.
Prolonged thyroid problems can alspetero cause hair loss due to hormonal interruptions to the normal growth patterns of hair roots and follicles.
Too much stress
When the stress hormone, adrenalin, is released too often it disrupts our nutrient absorption, meaning we have less blood supply available to nourish our hair follicles.
Gut issues ultimately affect your whole body so it’s important to focus on sorting out digestive issues. Stress, irritable bowel syndrome, poor diet, dehydration and alcohol consumption are all just a few of the things that can affect our digestion.
How to have healthier hair
When it comes to having strong, healthy hair – and lots of it – the following essential nutrients are key:
- Protein helps to produce keratin which plays a key role in making our hair strong by reducing breakages. For less brittle, dry hair and more hair with volume and strength, add high protein foods such as eggs, chicken, red meat, chickpeas and lentils to your diet.
- Probiotics keep your gut healthy, while also helping boost immunity. They allow our bodies the ability to fight off any harmful pathogens that may be running around in our blood, causing issues with the blood supply to our hair follicles. Get your daily probiotic dose by consuming kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut or a good quality probiotics supplement.
- Omega-3 are essential fatty acids that our bodies don’t make so we need to get them from our diet. Their anti-inflammatory properties aid our bodies to cope with daily stressors that could be disturbing our nutrient absorption and nourishment to our hair roots. The best sources of Omega 3 include: fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines), hemp seeds, flaxseed, chia seeds and walnuts.
- Vitamin E – absorbed only through fat sources (good fats such as Omega-3s above), vitamin E is an incredible antioxidant and can assist the body in fighting against damaging free radicals caused by pollution, hair products filled with chemicals, poor diet and alcohol intake that ultimately affect our hair growth. Add vitamin E your diet by including dark leafy greens, nuts and avocado.
- Iron is critical for healthy blood and without sufficient iron levels, our hair follicles suffer from a lack of nutritious blood supply. The best dietary sources of iron are red meat, chicken liver, chickpeas, lentils.
