You might not have correlated your hair quality with your health. But let me tell you, experts say that your health actually reflects on your hair. So, all that rough and damaged hair that you see might actually be a part of a bigger problem. The food you eat, the atmosphere, the hormones… even your mood swings have a say on how your hair is going to be. Surprised? Find out more:
1. Frizzy Hair
If you have a frizzy hair the you might have an underactive thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism. It is a very common condition and can be easily treated. Other symptoms of hypothyroidism include slow heart rate, weight gain, feeling cold most of the times. Even eyebrows start getting thinner and fall out. You must visit a doctor immediately if you notice any or all of these signs.
2. Dry Hair
A lot of people suffer from dry hair actually. Lack of proper conditioning is one of the causes of dry hair. But what makes the situation worse is usage of a lot of chemicals and dying or straightening your hair too often. If you don’t do any of these, then it might be your adrenal glands that are causing this problem. An injury in the parathyroid glands might be the reason. Also called hypoparathyroidism, this condition leads to drying of hair and hair breakage in the long run.
