Thinning hair has many causes including side effects of certain medications, illness, stress, over use of cosmetic hair products, and improper hair care.
But the common thread through any of these possibilities is always nutrition. Once you consult a dermatologist to find out what is causing your thinning hair, then it only requires a small amount of effort on your part to correct it.
Healthy hair starts in the kitchen! Make sure you get plenty of omega 3 fatty acids to strengthen and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are excellent sources, as well as flax seed.
Healthy hair needs GLA, gamma linoliec acid, to strengthen the hair shaft and keep it thick. Black current oil in capsule form contains plenty of GLA, and it’s widely available.
Another excellent source is coconut oil. Just massage it on your scalp during the week to help combat thinning hair. Taking care of your hair, just like your health, is a commitment. One that pays you back daily!
