What is hair?
Hair, as the eyes or skin, is a live extension of us; it has its roots in the blood and nourishes the digestive system. The hair is closely related to the nervous system, consists mainly of muscle tissue, keratin, oils, proteins and silicon, it not only garnishes of our heads, but also has a biological function that helps the body "feel" magnetically stabilized.
Causes of hair damage
When the hair become brittle, dries and starts to deteriorate or fall, this is the result that we have not given the necessary attention. To begin, when the hair starts to show signs of weakness or weight loss, is that surely there is a lack of blood irrigation. The lack of blood supply is one of the most common. Depletion, excessive worries, not exercising, over-study without proper mental rest and lack of sleep causes the body being tired and this is not enough to irrigate the blood to the head, which affect the hair that is like a plant that if is not fertilized or watered enough, will be weakened in its appearance. Now, take into account that blood nourishes our body. Therefore, if you eat a low amount of these, minerals and oil will run out too quickly in the various functions of the body before reaching the hair. It is therefore necessary that we observe mainly from your diet is rich in minerals and foods that we recommend below. The baldness or graying hair also reflects our moods and our food. The baldness is the result of prolonged states of tension or a feeling of wanting to control everything. With the requirements and the speed of life, often we do not notice that our scalp is damaged; you can now pay attention to your scalp and ask it to relax. If you feel the difference you should do this more often. Prolonged stress strangles the roots of the hair causing it to fall.
