Undernourished and Damaged Hair

There are situations when we unknowingly inflict a lot of damage to our hair that takes a serious toll on its shape and texture. A major cause of this can be attributed to Undernourishment. This nutritional deficiency is strong enough to cause conditions like hair breakage, fragile hair, dull and unruly hair and thinning hair. Some key nutrients are required to be taken in order to have healthy hair. These are

Iron

Not many people know that iron deficiency can cause considerable damage to hair. Iron is a vital nutrient required by your hair follicles to stay active. Not having enough Iron makes them weak and prone to breakage.

Biotin

Essentially a part of the Vitamin B group, Biotin is required for activating the amino acids in your hair roots and nail cells. So in case you are experiencing a lot of thinning hair that tends to fall out, you’re lacking Biotin.

Selenium

With its powerful antioxidant properties, Selenium performs several important functions – one of them is to provide defense from free radicals, controlling and promoting hair growth.

Zinc

Zinc is a powerful nutrient that provides immunity to the body. Its deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism – a prominent cause of hair loss.

Copper

Deficiency of copper leads to Anemia, causing your hair to go brittle and fall at an alarming rate.

Hair Damage

The consequence of these deficiencies is hair damage. It’s a condition where key elements of the hair structure – the cuticles, cortex and medulla – undergo a physical or chemical alteration.There are 3 ways to identify Hair Damage

Cuticle Loss

Cuticle is the outer layer of the hair follicle that provides cover to the delicate inner structures of the hair, retain moisture and reflect light. Damage to the hair cuticles makes the hair shaft thinner and results in the disintegration of the hair shaft.

Longitudinal Rupturing

Hair damage can leave a massive crack along its length, damaging the cortex and the medulla. This rupture exposes the hair fiber, making it prone to further damage.

Fibril Disintegration

In this case, the hair fibers fray and give the hairshaft a ragged and unstable alignment.
