Eatyourway to great hair
NUTRITION plays a major role when it comes to maintaining healthy hair, says clinical nutritionist Kyla Newcombe. Key dietary ingredients for healthy hair include zinc and iron.
“People often assume that hair loss is a result of inheriting bad genes or a stressful episode in their life, but one of the most common issues I see with my clients is actually due to nutritional deficiencies. It’s usually not until people talk to me as a nutritionist that they start to understand the role nutrition has for hair growth. Even with a seemingly healthy diet, if you are lacking in just one vitamin or mineral, this can significantly impact hair quality.”
She was speaking as research by Viviscal found 58pc of women surveyed experienced some sort of hair loss, damage, thinning and shedding, seriously impacting their confidence.
