Supplements for Lack Lustre Hair
How to help Lack Lustre Hair
I recently talked about how stress can have a negative impact on your digestive system. I mentioned that stress can affect your hair simply because it affects how you absorb the nutrients from your food. Stress also depletes the important B vitamins which can help the body deal with the effects of stress and are also important for skin, hair and nails.
Stress can affect your hair health
There are various reasons why you could have lack lustre or thinning hair, for example it could be due to hormonal changes, liver health, medication, or a symptom of disease. But, I don’t think the effect of stress on hair condition should be underestimated. If you’re experiencing lack lustre hair, hair loss or thinning hair and hair supplements haven’t worked for you, it might be worth tackling stress. There are lots of supplements to help with hair health. I think you could take all the supplements and eat as well as you like but if your digestive system is struggling you might not get any benefit from the supplements.
Supplements to support healthy hair
So for me when it comes to healthy hair, if you are stressed and you have digestive problems start there. You could take a supplement for digestion like Udo's Choice Digestive Enzymes. This will help you to digest the food that you are eating and help to get the more benefit from the food too. Improve digestion and then move on to taking a specific hair nutrient if required.
If your digestion system is in good order then these supplements may help: B vitamins are important for hair health, digestion, and the nervous system. Biotin is a popular B vitamin for healthy hair growth. Silica found in horsetail is great for hair. Amino acids, the building blocks of protein, an essential nutrient for hair growth is important too. These nutrients are all in New Nordic Hair Volume. It’s one I have spoken about before and have heard fantastic results from. If it hasn’t worked for you then think about what I have said, is it stress causing havoc with your digestive system? Maybe you need probiotics, digestive enzymes, or a good tonic for the nervous system before buying hair supplements.
My son used this product some time ago alongside Weleda Rosemary Hair Tonic, I talked about this is in a previous article. This combination worked really well for him and he is not having any issues at the moment. He took the supplement for about three months.
Omega Oils are important for hair heatlh
Omega oils are important for hair health too, this is because every cell in your body needs omega oils. Over the years the oil that I have seen the best results for hair health is Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend. It’s a vegetarian seed oil blend of Omega 3, 6 & 9. You can add it to your food as a dressing or take it straight from the bottle, you can choose capsules if you prefer. Many customers have told me how much better their hair looks and feels when using this oil. I have seen this with my own eyes too, their skin usually looks amazing too. If you don't want to take an Omega supplement then eat foods that provide these omega oils which includes flaxseeds, chia seeds, sunflower and hemp seeds, oily fish, and a variety of nuts will help provide the essential oils you need.
