WHAT DETERMINES OUR HAIR HEALTH?
Hair health depends a lot on our food habits, health care regimen, stress levels, and even exposure to harmful chemicals. For instance, it has been observed that dry scalp is a result of low-fat levels and hair thinning is a sign of low protein levels in your body.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON HEALTH PROBLEMS?

WHAT IS HAIR LOSS AND HAIR THINNING?
Humans have an average of 100,000 to 150,000 hair follicles which continuously produces individual hair strands. Infact, hair is considered to be second fastest growing human tissue after bone marrow! While it is natural to lose about 100-150 hair strands every day, anything more should ring an alarm.
Now for whatever reasons, external or internal, if we keep losing more hair than what our follicles are producing, then this leads to hair thinning.
WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS OR THINNING?
Hair loss and hair thinning could be due to internal or external factors. Internal reasons could be paucity of vital elements in our body due to unhealthy diet, unhealthy lifestyle or excessive stress. External factors could be exposure to harmful chemicals, poor hair care regimen etc.
MANAGING INTERNAL FACTORS.
A balanced diet is the first step to preventing hair loss and thinning. Our diet must include Proteins, Zinc, Selenium (present in eggs, beans and other pulses), Vitamin C & Iron (all present in berries), Vitamin A (leafy vegetables), Omega-3 fatty acids (present in fish or as supplements), Beta carotene (sweet potatoes), Vitamin C, B, E & Iron (present in fruits berries nuts and seeds).
Besides correcting our diet, we should also exercise regularly to remain physically fit and mentally balanced. We must also manage our stress levels as well as we can!
HOW TO MANAGE EXTERNAL FACTORS?
It is as important to avoid prolonged exposure to chemical laden shampoos, dyes, perfumes etc. as also to maintain a healthy hair hygiene. Hair must be washed periodically and dried to remove dirt and grime. Also, one can regularly massage hair gently using a mixture of 15 ml lavender oil blended with 250 ml of organic olive oil. Please make sure that both oils used are genuine and obtained by cold pressed methods for best result. It may be difficult to procure pure lavender oil or Organic Olive / Coconut oil, but you can easily get them from Camia.
