82% rise in number of females resorting to hair transplant surgery to restore thinning locks.
You can spend hundreds on conditioners and treatments - but healthy, beautiful hair is more about what you put into your body than what you slather on your head.
Ricardo Vila Nova, resident trichologist at Urban Retreat in Harrods says: “Poor diet can cause hair thinning and hair loss as well as lacklustre hair, dryness and excess sebum. A high-stress lifestyle and bad nutrition can be catalysts for damage which may need four years to recover.”
If your hair keeps breaking, eat red meat: “Iron is a top strength booster,” says Vila Nova. It carries the blood’s supply of oxygen around the body keeping hair strong and nourished. Thin and limp hair is the first sign that you aren’t getting enough iron.
