Diet And Hair Loss - Why Good Nutrition Is Vital For Hair Health

Author : Rick Minarovich

Thinning hair is a very common problem that many aging adults deal with as they go through their lives. There are a number of reasons why people experience thinning hair, and in many cases there is nothing that can be done to prevent it. Diet and hair loss are two areas that can in some cases be linked together, but this isn't always the case.

As you begin to research your thinning hair problem, you will find that there are actually a number of possible causes for the loss of hair. One reason why you might be losing your hair is your genetic make up. There are some people who are unfortunate in that their genetic make-up means they are pre-disposed to hair loss, eventually leading to complete loss of hair as they age. You will see this more commonly in males, but it certainly cannot be ruled out in women either. When there is a history of male pattern baldness in the family, chances are pretty good that it will continue to occur in subsequent generations.

Overall health can also play a role in thinning hair, because the healthier one is the less likely that they are going to suffer from hair loss issues, albeit without taking into account any genetic pre-disposition to hair loss one may have. The health of the scalp is important for hair growth and hair stability, and this is why diet and hair loss are often linked. If the scalp is not healthy, meaning it contains dry skin or clogged pores, then the battle to keep a full head of healthy hair for long becomes a much harder task.

There are a number of other reasons why one might be experiencing thinning hair. Some of the reasons can include illness, excessive washing, using shampoos and conditioners that contain excessive amounts of harmful chemicals, stress, and drastic changes in body composition. Unnatural and unhealthy changes to the bodies composition can throw off its balance, which can then lead to poor health throughout the body.

One solution for curbing hair loss is through a healthy diet. Diet and hair loss are two terms that generally are not used in the same sentence, but when you understand how your diet can affect the overall health of your scalp and hair, then it doesn't seem so inappropriate to use them with one another. There are many areas of health and well-being, other than weight loss, that can be heavily influenced by a persons diet, and hair loss is often one of them.

A lack of essential vitamins and minerals can cause hair to become weak and brittle. This can lead to an increase in the amount of shedding that takes place. One way of promoting healthier hair is by focusing on your diet to ensure that you are getting the proper nutrients that are required in order for the body to stay healthy.

Vitamin A and E are two supplements that you can take in order to replenish cells and tissue, as well as heal damaged skin cells in order to bring back life to your scalp and hair follicles. While this may not quite be a magic pill solution, it can go some way to addressing how often a bad diet and hair loss are directly related to each other.
