Hair Loss Nutrition

canstockphoto14539757If you are one of the women or men suffering from hair loss, you are probably ambivalent about whether there will ever be a cure, which does not require years of needles, medications, and whatever else you have heard about in the beauty market.  Some of us have actually experienced ‘snake-oil’ remedies, only to suffer the consequences of losing more hair and never to recover those locks again.

‘Two thirds of men suffer with hair loss by the age of 35, and 40% of hair loss sufferers are women’ – Source: American Hair Loss Association – Men’s Hair Loss / Mission. And to make matters worse,  a recent article reported that thousands of women ‘lose hair because of using a well-publicized product’, which was endorsed by a particular celebrity.  With all these unsuccessful instances, actually there is a conversation going on about whether the FDA can help not only with hair products, but beauty products in general. So, what are people with hair loss concerns to do?  Alopecia is a real, ongoing, epidemic-level condition. “What is to be done?”

canstockphoto14705801My answer for now is to remain positive, hopeful and continually reaching.  I continue to explore prudently.  In conversation with a hair specialist I learned that she had a client who saw an increase in hair growth by changing her diet.  She was actually able to reduce the amount of  false hair used/added that would be used cosmetically to enhance her look!

That’s good news!  We can explore with our diet: what a win-win remedy!  Even if we don’t see a substantial increase in hair growth, we will be feeding our bodies with good nutrition, and reaping the benefits of better health.  “Hair LaVie” is a vitamin company, which makes a series of products.  Consumers have testified about results, which come from the use of their products.  You can peruse their website at your convenience, if you want to learn more.

I was encouraged by a recent post on the “Hair La Vie” blog, which stated:  ‘If you’re looking for a healthy and nutritious way to try and grow your hair, these nutrient-packed smoothies & juices are for you. Not only can these juices boost hair’s growth, but they can also provide you with shiny, smooth, and more manageable hair.’ Source: Hair La Vie
