How Your Health Impacts Your Hair Health and Vitality

As much as your stress impacts your hair, your overall health contributes to your hair growth in ways you might never know of. From excessive hair shedding to dandruff in your hair, everything about your hair signifies how you’re doing health-wise.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, losing a hundred strands of hair on more than a regular basis is expected, as new hair replaces them over time. But, finding hair strands in all the nooks and crannies of your house –to your bathtub, pillows, carpets, and rugs is not normal at all.

You can be experiencing a medical condition, a genetic disorder, or even Telogen Effluvium – a condition that comes into play because of any stressful event that may cause hair fall. Let’s find out how health impacts your hair!

Anemia and Hair Shedding

You are likely to experience excessive hair shedding once your body experiences iron deficiency or simply anemia. Anemia causes excessive hair loss – and chances are, when you are anemic, you may witness innumerable hair strands in every corner of the house. One way to cope with this is going for an early diagnosis.

You can consider going for blood tests, or you can take iron supplements on your doctor’s recommendation. If not, consuming meals that are a good source of iron like egg, red meat, or liver can be a great idea. However, you don’t want to go overboard with your iron consumption because as much as iron deficiency is not suitable for health, excessive iron intake can put you through inconveniences, too.

Protein Deficiency

Protein is another ingredient required for healthy hair growth. However, protein deficiency can be easily coped with by increasing your protein-rich food and supplement intake. From yogurt to tilapia, chicken breast, and chickpeas, several foods are good sources of protein.

Scalp Condition

Your skin condition is what determines your hair health. The better your scalp or skin condition, the better your hair gets. Simply put, the dryer your skin gets, the more dandruff you get as a result. Other skin conditions may include Seborrheic dermatitis – a condition that causes dandruff in your hair. In such a condition, you get greasy skin, flakes in your hair, and whatnot! This is why it is advisable to go for an early diagnosis to prevent yourself from the repercussions as much as you can.

Other Conditions may include:

  • Hair thinning and Thyroid

  • Brittle hair and Cushing’s syndrome

  • Menstrual Cycle

  • Pregnancy

  • Long term illness

  • Fever

  • Surgery
