Glow from the out­side in

No. 1 Magazine - - HEALTH & BEAUTY -

Not only are fad di­ets of­ten bad for your health, they’re also bad news for your hair. Tri­chol­o­gist, Sara Al­li­son, tells us what main changes we should all be mak­ing this year and why it’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand that dra­mat­i­cally re­duc­ing your daily calo­rie in­take will take its toll on your locks. She said: “In­ad­e­quate nu­tri­ents in the diet can cause itchy, scaly skin on the head, weak hair fol­li­cles and even po­ten­tial hair loss. Due to its ex­pend­able na­ture, a nutri­tional im­bal­ance will of­ten show up first in the form of ex­ces­sive hair loss. Hair and scalp prob­lems can arise from ei­ther a de­fi­ciency or an ex­cess of nu­tri­ents in your diet, and in some cases nutri­tion alone can be the cause of hair loss. Don’t fall for the crash di­ets that elim­i­nate es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents, min­er­als and healthy fats!”
