We all strive to have a healthy diet that feeds our body with the provided nutrition on a daily basis. We all know that is a hard battle but that we can win daily. There are endless reasons to become aware of what we are eating and how it effects our bodies. We always here how foods can harm us, or cause cancer, and so forth. But what about how turning to a healthy diet full of nutrition can help us. We all know that eating health gives us added health benefits, but what about the benefits that are not health related but confidence related. As in self confidence, there have been links between nutrition and hair growth that could have you changing your diet immediately, for the perfect locks of hair.
- 1Every stand of hair is composed mostly of protein, and so it follows that hair needs an adequate supply of protein in order to grow. Each hair follicle goes through a regular cycle of growth and shedding, which is why even the healthiest scalps generally lose between 50 and 100 hairs each day.
- 2However, any significant physiological shock, like severe trauma, surgery, or even a crash diet that significantly restricts protein intake, can provoke an excessive number of follicles to enter the shedding phase all at once, a condition known as telogen effluvium.
