Hair, one of the most common issues that people ask me about, the way to treat and nourish the hair in a healthy way.
We usually have a complicated relationship with our hair, we like it/we hate it, we tried a new product, we are changing the haircut or the colour, and the hair has an influence on us especially if we having a bad hair day…
There many things that could affect how the hair looks like.
It depends on:
- Nutrition – the vitamins and minerals that are fundamental for the healthy roots and prevention of hair loss. Minerals like zinc, iron and B vitamins are the most important one
It is also connected to the healthy fats consumption, like omega 3
You should always stick with a good, balanced healthy diet, this impacts almost on all other aspects…
- Genetics – we can support our body in this area, with the help of herbs, supplements, nutrition and stressless life management
- The weather – if the air is dry or moist
- Hair products that we use

Additionally, when an overload of silicone products are applied to hair, the buildup of the silicone coating eventually causes breakage.
The parabens are a preservative, studies have shown that some parabens can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells, and while estrogenic activity is associated with certain forms of breast cancer. (1)
