CUT­TING YOUR HAIR WILL MAKE IT GROW BACK IN THICKER

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - FRONT PAGE -

In cer­tain parts of the world, such as In­dia, it’s com­mon prac­tice to shave chil­dren’s heads when they reach the age of two. Given that In­dia is a na­tion of peo­ple with mostly thick, glossy hair, it’s easy to see where this wis­dom came from. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s false. “Hair grows in the der­mis un­der the scalp so thick­ness isn’t af­fected by shav­ing or cut­ting,” Ngata says, adding that diet plays the most im­por­tant role in healthy growth. “Es­sen­tial fatty acids found in salmon, wal­nuts and av­o­cado may help, as will tak­ing a sup­ple­ment, such as sil­ica, that main­tains op­ti­mum fol­li­cle health.”
