Not feeling 100%. Your body will look after the vital organs first and foremost. Sending the required vitamins, proteins and minerals to organs the body needs to survive. Leaving others weaker….our hair.
Hair cells require proteins, complex carbohydrates and iron to grow and function correctly. It is important to consume the right nutrients and in the right quantities to give your hair the best chance to look it´s best.
Iron is another important factor in the growth and health of your hair. An iron deficiency can be checked with a simple blood test with your doctor. Anaemia can carry symptoms such as fatigue, and paleness of complexion.
