1. Hair loss
Shedding hair is both natural and cylical but if you're losing a lot more than 100 to 200 strands a day, it could be a sign of stress, low iron levels, lack of protein or thyroid hormone imbalance.
(I blogged about hair loss here, anyway I'm glad that the situation is improving now! So consume more vege/tofu/eggs and other food which is high in iron and protein)
2. Dull and dry
Overuse/misuse of hair dryers, heat-styling products and colouring products can dry out hair. So use them moderately.
(I shampoo my hair every 2 days(sometimes everyday if really needed), and blow dry them everytime.. now I think I have to cut down on the drying time...)
3. Oily and greasy
Oily hair, even when hair is washed frequently is caused by oversecretion of sebum from scalp, which could be due to hormone imbalance.
(Usually my hair gets oily after a day. So, I cannot imagine how I'll deal with them during my future confinement period! :o)
4. Slow to grow
If your hair growth has gone fron fast to slow, it may be the result of a period of illness, severe stress or poor diet.
(Never know stress could do so much harm to our overall body!!)
It could be caused by nutrient deficiencies, most commonly zinc and Vit C, but it can be treated by the right shampoo. If the situation becomes worse, it's advisable to get it checked.
(well, dandruff is a very embarrasing situation especially when we're wearing dark color clothing... so, don't take it lightly!)
