Janice Markley - Independent Noevir ConsultantPut an End to Bad Hair Days

Dear Janice,
What can I do about my chronic bad hair days? My hair just never seems to look healthy or shiny, no matter what products I use?

Ever have a "bad hair day?" Just about everyone has. Whether it's too limp, too curly, too wild or too flat, bad hair days can affect how we feel about ourselves. Our hair is part of our self-image and our identity, and that's why the way our hair looks is so important. We make sure it's in place before a meeting or social engagement, and we check it in our car mirror when we're stopped in traffic. Other people's hair is often one of the first things we notice, and our opinion of them may even be based on what we think of their hair. No wonder hair problems -- such as dandruff
and hair loss -- are such important issues.

Dandruff is simply skin cells that are shed by the scalp, and contrary to popular opinion, it's not because your scalp is too dry. The most common cause of dandruff is thought to be an overgrowth of a yeast-like fungus that occurs on the oily areas of the scalp. Skin cells on the scalp normally replace themselves about once a month, flaking off unnoticed because there are never many of them at any one time. When the cells are infected with the fungus, however, they may cycle as often as every five days. The result? A "snowstorm" on your shoulders. Although it may seem difficult to control the flaking, washing your hair every day with a mild shampoo like Noevir's Tokara Sea Mineral Shampoo (and massaging your scalp as you do with Revitalizing Herbal Hair Tonic) will remove both fungus and flakes. And remember to avoid any hair-care products that irritate your scalp or make it oilier.

But what about those hairs -- it may seem like more and more of them --that are showing up in your sink and on your comb? About 95 percent of hair loss is due to heredity. And while hair loss is usually thought of as a man's problem, women are affected, too. Fewer females than males lose their hair, however, because human hair is strongly influenced by female
hormones. You can't do anything about your genetic make-up, of course, but it is possible to treat hair loss in some cases. This is because no one inherits baldness, as such. The genetic link is simply a predisposition for weak hair follicle structure. And that can sometimes be corrected.

The condition of your hair and hair follicles is related to your health. Hair tends to be in good shape when you are, and you're in the best shape you can be when you eat a balanced diet. But because hair consists mainly of protein, if you favor a diet plan that excludes protein or if you are a "junk-food junkie," you may develop protein malnutrition. When that happens, your body tries to save protein by shifting the growing hairs into the resting stage. During the resting stage, hair stops growing and the hair roots move from deep under the skin to near the surface of the scalp. Normally, this is a period of natural hair loss, where your head sheds between 50 and 100 hairs each day.

Protein malnutrition, however, can cause an abnormal amount of hair loss to occur, resulting in thinning hair and eventually baldness. Fortunately, this condition can be reversed and prevented by eating the proper amount of protein. Make sure your diet includes protein-rich foods such as meat, poultry and fish. If you're a vegetarian, eat beans, legumes and tofu, which are also high in protein. Iron deficiency, another cause of hair loss, can be because you either are not getting enough iron in your diet, or your body isn't fully absorbing the iron. Protein foods such as meat and legumes are also a good source of iron, as are fortified cereals and dark leafy green vegetables. Vitamin C aids iron absorption, so be sure to drink your orange juice or take a supplement such as Noevir BioEssentials (for good health) and BioRadiance (for the health of the skin). And if you can't get enough iron in your diet, supplementation might be necessary.

Some forms of medication can accelerate hair loss. Discuss this with your doctor if you're taking medication for high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, depression or heart problems. Hereditary hair loss, which can affect both men and women, is usually not treatable, although medical treatments, such as Minoxidil and Rogaine, applied to the scalp, may help some people.

There is no guarantee that any treatment will prevent hair loss or encourage new growth, but the following tips can help keep your hair healthy and your hair follicles strong -- and that's the best place to start:
* Eat a well-balanced nutritional diet.
* Handle your hair gently. Don't brush it roughly or when it's wet.
* Allow your hair to dry naturally, rather than using a hair dryer.
* Avoid tight hairstyles such as braids, buns or ponytails.
