There are many different kinds of hair problems, from dry or oily hair to premature hair loss, but most are linked to what you eat. Oily hair can occur with vitamin B deficiency. Dry or brittle hair is often a sign of essential fat deficiency. Poor hair growth, or loss of colour, is a sign of zinc deficiency. Hair loss is connected with general nutritional deficiency, especially a lack of iron, vitamin B1, vitamin C or lysine (an amino acid). Some hair supple¬ments contain all these. Massaging the scalp also helps, as does hanging upside down, including headstands and ‘inversion’ poses in yoga, which improve circulation to the scalp. The combination of optimum nutrition, stimulating scalp circulation and correcting underlying hormonal imbalances has proved the most effective answer for hair loss. Unfortunately there is no answer yet for grey hair, or any apparent connection with nutrition.
Make sure you do not go short of essential fats (linseeds, flaxseeds, avocado, oily fish, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, almonds, brazil nuts) and water.
Avoid refined sugar and stimulants like tea, coffee, alcohol, cigarettes and chocolate.
