hair analysis Apr 09, 2024

In my coaching practice, a lot of women tell me that they are losing their hair. It's hard for me to hear because for many of us our hair serves as a reminder of our health, and beauty as a woman.

The truth is that it's not just about the products you apply externally, but also the nourishment that you provide from within.

Here are the most common factors for bad hair growth:

Nutrient Deficiency: A lack of essential nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, can impact hair growth. Nutrients like biotin, iron, zinc, and vitamins A and D play crucial roles in maintaining healthy hair.

Hormonal Imbalance: Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid disorders, can affect hair growth.

Stress and Anxiety: High-stress levels can lead to hair loss and poor hair growth. Chronic stress may disrupt the normal hair growth cycle.

Genetics: Family history and genetic factors play a significant role in determining hair growth patterns. If your relatives suffered from hair loss or slow growth, genetics may predispose you.

Scalp Conditions: Conditions like dandruff, psoriasis, or fungal infections can hinder hair growth. A healthy scalp is essential for promoting strong and vibrant hair.

Heat and Styling Damage: Excessive use of heating tools, styling products, and harsh hair treatments can damage the hair shaft, leading to breakage and slow growth.

Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as alopecia areata, lupus, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can impact hair growth. Addressing the underlying health issue is critical.

Poor Hair Care Habits: Overwashing, using harsh shampoos, and tight hairstyles that pull on hair can contribute to slow hair growth.

Age: As individuals age, the rate of hair growth naturally slows down. Hair may also become finer and more prone to breakage.

It's important to pay close attention to what you put on and in your body.
