Healthy hair starts from within. Diet, medications, stress and overall health play a huge role in the condition of your hair. Your hair, unlike your skin, is not an essential organ. So, if there’s anything in your system that requires additional nutrients, your (very clever) body will send it there rather than to your hair.
If you’ve noticed changes in your hair health, it’s worth visiting your doctor. Recent changes in medication could be the culprit, but a hormonal imbalance, a nutrient deficiency, or an underlying health condition can also be responsible.
Once the above factors affecting hair health change have been ruled out, a balanced diet and lifestyle can improve the health of your hair. Excess alcohol consumption and smoking dry out your hair from within. Eliminating or reducing these habits can result in an overall positive effect on your body, mind… and hair!
It’s tricky to get all the essential nutrients in your diet. Using supplements can help to bridge any nutrient gaps, ensuring there’s a surplus of goodness in your system. Our favourite hair growth supplement is Mane Event by Apotecari. It’s Australian-made and owned and full of everything your hair needs to be its best.
Excessive and prolonged periods of stress can wreak havoc on your hair, causing hair loss and lacklustre locks. It’s hard when you’re experiencing stress to find the time to unwind, but de-stressing your life can make a huge difference to your hair and overall wellness.
