Unusual Hair Signs Warning Health Problems
Many people think that the condition of the hair depends on how you care for and the affection of external factors. However, the abnormalities on hair also reveal that something is wrong with your body.
Tangled And Fibrous Hair
Usually, the cause of tangled hair may come from the wrong ways in taking care of hair, regularly dyeing or doing some heat styling methods such as curls or straighten hair. Also, tangled hair is a sign showing that the body is lacking vitamins and essential minerals like selenium, sulfur, and phosphorus.
Dandruff is not dangerous but it can make you uncomfortable and cause excessive itching. Many reasons for dandruff that have to be mentioned are things such as excessive use of hair care products. Besides, it is also a sign of unhealthy diets, especially too many carbs and fats. Another reason for dandruff can be stress, problems with the gastrointestinal tract or immunodeficiency. If dandruff is yellow, you may have seborrheic dermatitis, a dermatological condition that is difficult to treat. In this case, anti-dandruff shampoo is not effective and you should see a doctor for accurate advice.
Thin And Brittle Hair
Thin and brittle hair can be caused by a lack of protein. When the body lacks protein, the condition of skin, hair, and nails will get worse. So you should eat lots of fruits and consume more omega-3 fatty acids. Besides, brittle hair is also a sign of Cushing’s disease (secondary adrenal insufficiency). If you have additional signs like chronic insomnia, high blood pressure, and unexplained back pain, you should immediately go see the doctor for a more thorough examination.
Too Much Hair Loss
Usually, you will lose about 100 hairs a day, except for pregnancy, premenstrual or some special conditions that can cause hair loss. The easiest way to check if your hair loss is normal is to put your fingers through your hair and pull from the root to the tip. If there are only 0-2 fibers falling out, everything is normal, if there are 3-5 or more hairs fall off, you should go to the doctor. Hair loss can be a warning sign that your endocrine system or your immune system has problems. It may also be a sign of diabetes. Besides, this phenomenon may occur when the body is deficient in vitamins or too stressful.
Greasy hair occurs when the diet is unbalanced and you are consuming too much animal fat. To resolve this situation, eat less meat, greasy and fried foods, sweets, smoked products, alcohol, and coffee. Add a few drops of Melaleuca oil you’re your casual shampoo while washing your hair to reduce oil secretion on the scalp. If these do not work, you may have metabolic problems, hormonal decline or liver problems. In this case, you should see your doctor for the best diagnosis.
Early Silver Hair
Generally, gray hair mainly depends on the genetic level of a person: As we age, the amount of melanocyte responsible for producing pigment also decreases. On average, women start to have gray hair at the age of 30-40. But in fact, there are many cases of younger people, even teenagers starting having gray hair from very early. This may be the result of excessive stress, chronic fatigue or even poor diet (such as reducing the amount of protein needed). Scientists claim these causes affect the production of melanin, causing hair to become silver faster.
If this symptom is accompanied by pimples, sores, peeling and other types of irritation, it may be a warning sign of psoriasis or eczema. If scalp itching is not accompanied by any other symptoms, the cause may be a nervous system disorder caused by stress. In this case, you should take herbal teas, supplement vitamins B1 and B6.
Dry And Split Hair
If you do not use a hairdryer, dry and split ends can be a sign of lack of protein, iron, and copper. This problem also occurs with the person having strict diets or having problems with the endocrine system. You should increase your intake of fish, carrots and orange juice to better absorb iron and drink enough water.
