How Diet and Nutrition Affect Hair Loss and Growth

Did you know that more than half of all men and about half of all women experience hair loss during their lifetime? Nutrition can play an enormous role in the health of your hair. Nutrition can even affect hair growth and hair loss for both men and women.

Hair operates on a three-phase growth cycle that can take several years to complete. Certain life events such as pregnancy can impact hair growth and loss in women. Factors like stress can contribute to hair growth or thinning. Even things as simple as what you’re eating can affect how your hair grows. Your hair follicles are extremely sensitive when it comes to the nutrients they require. If you do not intake the proper nutrients, your hair is one of the first things in your body to feel the repercussions.

According to Healthline, iron deficiency is one of the most commonly occurring nutrient deficiencies in the world.¹ It is also largely notorious for disrupting hair growth cycles and causing hair to thin and shed. In order to prevent nutrient deficiencies that can negatively affect hair growth, ensure you are consuming the proper foods and vitamins to meet your body’s needs. Hair health can be improved with vitamins that contain essential nutrients, such as biotin, vitamin B12, and iron.

The Pure Hair Restoration Center offers a wide variety of treatments and nutrient supplements to help keep you and your hair looking and feeling fabulous.
