When you consider all aspects of personal care and hygiene, many people tend to overlook the care that should go into their hair. Although hair is only dead skin cells, that does not mean that it should not be properly cared for! Neglecting to care for your hair could result in many health problems—and cause you to become unpopular among your friends and colleagues. Additionally, taking good care of your hair can help to prevent hair loss and balding. It is as simple as following basic nutrition and hygiene guidelines.

Normal HairGrowth And How To Speed Up The Process

The average head has over 100,000 hairs, each of them sitting in hair follicles that lie just underneath the skin. No one hairfollows exactly the same growth cycle; they all grow independently of one another. In normal hair growth, there are three main stages: anagen (the growth stage), catagen (the transition stage), and telogen (the resting stage). The growth stage can last for as long as seven years.

Speeding up hair growth can be a matter of getting the proper amount of vitamins and nutrients. A deficiency in nutrition can lead to dull, stringy hair, and even temporaryhair loss! A common side effect of eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia is hair loss. This indicates that eating the proper amount of food is important to preventing baldness

There are several essential vitamins that aid hair growth. Deficiencies in these specific vitamins can cause problems with hair growth. Zinc and biotin (which is related to vitamin B) are both associated with hair health. Zinc can be found in meat and eggs, while biotin can be found in most protein sources.

Another hair care essential is having enough fat in your diet. People on low-fat and no-fat diets are often at risk to suffer hair health consequences, because they can cause the scalp to dry up. Omega-3 fatty acids can help to ensure a healthy scalp and crop of hair.

Healthy Hygiene Help

Another aspect of hair care is regularly washing it with shampoo and conditioner. For people with abnormal hair conditions, such as dandruff, there are special shampoos available to help treat them. It is also important to limit flat-ironing and blow-drying your hair because this can cause it to dry out.

The Hair Makes The Person

Hair care reflects a lot about your health habits and how much you value personal appearance. To avoid baldness and stringy, dead, or dry hair, follow nutrition and personal hygiene basics.
