- Cut down on tea and coffee - they are powerful stimulants that act on the nervous, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, increasing the excretion of water and important nutrients. They also hamper the absorption of minerals crucial for hair health. Drink mineral water (between six and eight glasses a day), herbal teas and unsweetened fruit juice.
- Alcohol dilates blood vessels and so helps increase blood flow to the tissues. However, it is antagonistic to several minerals and vitamins that are vital for healthy hair. Limit yourself to an occasional drink.
- Regular exercise stimulates dhe circulatory system, encouraging a healthy blood supply to all cells and nourishing and helping to regenerate and repair.
- Some contraceptive pills deplete the B-complex vitamins and zinc. If you notice a change in your hair after starting to take the Pill, or changing brands, ask your doctor or nutritionist for advice.
Drink plenty of water every day to keep your hair healthy. Eating 2 or 3 pieces of fruit a day provides your hair with vital vitamins and minerals.
