There are many reasons for thinning hair and hair loss. The causes range from hormonal imbalances or medications to environmental issues or stress. Many of these factors are out of our control, but there are a few basic steps you can take when it comes to your diet to help grow healthy hair.

• Increase fresh fruits and vegetables
• Decrease or eliminate processed foods
• Choose from the Top 10 Foods for Healthy Hair which includes salmon, blueberries, walnuts, poultry and more
• Supplement your diet with iron, zinc, biotin and B vitamins – all shown to have positive effects on hair growth

Researchers have found that an abundance of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a male hormone present in both males and females, can inhibit the scalp’s ability to support new hair growth. The hair follicles shrink resulting in a shorter lifespan and the abnormal production of hair.

However, using natural supplements like HairGain™ it is possible to stop the binding of DHT to the hair follicle and prevent DHT’s harmful effects. HairGain supplies your body and scalp with the important nutrients required for healthy hair growth. At Allusions we often recommend this DHT blocker as part of our men’s and women’s solutions.

We all know that eating a healthy diet has so many wonderful benefits for our bodies. Isn’t it great to know that it helps with thinning hair and hair loss?

Wishing you wellness!
