When you have shiny hair, it’s usually a good indicator of your health. Shiny hair equals good health. Dull, broken hair can signify a number of problems.
So how do you get the sheen back on your locks? Here’s a couple of factors (thanks to PaleoHacks) to look at, and see where you’re at when it comes to getting the groove back in your barnet.
1. Your Diet
After all, you are what you eat. A lot of people don’t think about how their diet affects their hair health, but the two are closely related. Why?
Because your hair follicles are living organisms. They need plenty of nourishment to thrive. That can’t happen unless there are enough nutrients in your bloodstream to reach them.
When your body is deficient in nutrients, it prioritizes where to send the nutrients it does have. Vital organs – those responsible for life and death – get top priority, while other less important organs, like your hair follicles, have to make do with inadequate nutrients.
This is why evidence of a nutritional deficiency shows up quickly in your hair. Unhealthy hair is a warning sign that you might not be getting all the nourishment you need.
You’ve probably heard how stress apparently makes your hair grey or even causes it to fall out…
The supposed connection between hair and stress levels is often discussed and hotly debated. Some say it’s scientifically sound. Others say it’s nothing more than an urban legend.
One thing’s for sure, though. Physiological stress affects your hair health. If your body is under a physiological toll, whether it’s from lack of sleep, an illness, or trying to stick to the latest fad diet, your hair can suffer.
Stress makes your adrenal glands and kidneys work harder. Both of these play an important role in removing toxins that enter your body. When they are forced to work too hard, they can’t process the toxins that get into your body (and hair) as effectively.
Also, emotional or psychological stress can lead to physiological stress. If you’re stressed out about work or a personal issue, you might stop sleeping enough or pick up junk food as an emotional outlet. This can lead to a vicious cycle of worsening health.
Conventional Shampoos and Conditioners
Practically all the hair care product you see at the store are loaded with dangerous chemicals.
These chemicals include:
Sulfates are actually found in more than 90 percent of modern-day shampoos and body washes. You might think something so common wouldn’t be harmful. But in reality, sulfates can create some nasty side effects for your hair – dulling, dryness, and brittle strands. The negative effects only compound when you use the products every day!
Two of the most common sulfates in these products are sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES). It’s easy to know if your products contain these chemicals because they’re responsible for causing the product to foam when you massage it into your scalp.
Sulfates also remove oils your hair produces naturally. They strip away way more oils than necessary, which damages the hair and causes your body to work overtime to produce more oils.
