The Stories That Your Hair Tell

Wednesday 8 April 2015

Your hair is actually a barometer to your state of health. If you don't address the root cause of your health problem, you will continue to battle hair problems despite using expensive hair-care products.

Here is a quick look at some common hair problems and what are the possible causes.

1. Dandruff

Dry scalp can be caused by
  • genetic conditions
  • lack of vitamin B and zinc
  • diet with excessive sugar and fat
  • scalp condition called seborrheic dermatitis, similar to psoriasis and eczema.
But for most people, the real cause of dandruff is actually skin that is too oilynot too dry.

Other causes of dandruff include
  • Parkinson's disease
  • not washing your hair for a long time.
2. Hair Loss

Balding in men is usually genetic.
Balding for women is usually caused by hormonal imbalance e.g. after giving birth and menopause.

Other causes of hair loss include
  • excessive weight loss
  • eating disorders
  • thyroid problems
  • stress
  • certain medications
  • insufficient protein.

3. Dry and Brittle Hair

Some of the causes are
  • diet deficient in iron and vitamin E
  • excessive fat-rich foods, fast foods, processed snacks laden with sugar, salt, additive and flavourings.
  • excessive styling, washing, blow-drying or colouring.
  • under-active thyroid.
4. Gray Hair

The main cause is linked to genetics.
There's new evidence that suggests gray hair can be caused by stress.

5. White Hair

Physical and emotional trauma such as illness, death, or prolonged stress, do have effects on your hair, resulting in them dropping off more quickly.

6. Others

Other causes of hair loss include
  • drinking too much coffee or alcohol and smoking, as they can affect how well your body absorbs vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat.
  • sensitivity to certain food allergens such as dairy, wheat, soy, corn and food additives.
