It’s no secret that alcohol has a significant effect on the human body—an effect that spans to pretty much all bodily systems and parts. This includes both the skin and the hair, which can both deteriorate as a result of excessive drinking. In this post, we’ll review some of the most significant ways in which alcohol impacts your skin and hair—and we’ll also offer some tips for avoiding these negative effects.
Are you familiar with trichotillomania—the condition that causes people to pull, twist, and chew on their hair, often leading to patchy hair loss or even baldness? For many, the condition remains largely unknown, but that’s not to say that it is uncommon. Trichotillomania impacts more people than you might think.
Not all hair styles are created equal. They vary in terms of look, of course, and also in terms of ease and convenience. Something you might not be aware of is that they can also differ in how they impact your hair and scalp. Some hair styles are perfectly safe, while others can actually do damage—and in some cases even lead to hair loss.
Sometimes people ask us: What’s the best thing you can do for the health of your hair? Our answer? Eat right. After all, we all know the old saying—you are what you eat. There’s a lot of truth to that. If you want to have healthy, strong, and beautiful hair, you need to fill your body with nutrients that lend themselves to this; nutrients that give your hair the sustenance it needs to thrive.
