The best way to keep a healthy hair is to be on a healthy diet


The scalp contains about 100,000 hairs and we lose, more or less, 50 to 100 of them every day. In most people, these hairs grow back, since hair follicle cells (a hair follicle is the tube of tissue under the skin that surrounds the root of every strand of hair) have a high turnover rate. Each hair grows out of one follicle, and each time the follicle pushes a hair out, a new one forms in its place. But there are several situations that can lead to hair loss (or to a deficiency of hair growth): childbirth, surgery, illness, stress, some medications, excessive shampooing and blow-drying, hormone changes, a low protein diet, poor nutrition, etc. A deficiency of proteins, minerals, essential fatty acids and some vitamins can produce hair loss.

The Mayo Clinic suggests that a deficiency in fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 can lead to hair loss if it is not regulated after four months.

Remember: The best way to keep a healthy hair is to be on a healthy diet.
