Healthy hair is a sign of overall health; unhealthy hair can indicate problems. Hair falling out can be a result of stress or surgery and dry hair may be caused by sun damage or overstyling. Omega-3s, B vitamins, protein, magnesium and zinc are just a few dietary factors that some studies suggest may help your hair. Appropriate shampoos, conditioners and other products can also nourish rather than harm your hair. Avoid over-processing, over-dyeing, and overstyling your hair with hair dryers or other heated items. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage about how hair of all types can be healthy, how to care for problematic hair, and much more.
