What Does Your Hair And Scalp Say About Your Health?

Hair is produced by hair follicles situated in the deepest layer of the skin and is composed mostly of dead protein and pigment. The quality, thickness and texture of the hair is reflected in the changes in the body’s metabolism. Listed are a few signs of what your hair and scalp say about your health

1. Gray hair: Gray hair usually isn’t a sign of poor health, though anemia, thyroid issues, vitamin B-12 deficiency, and vitiligo can cause premature graying.

2. Dry/limp hair: Many factors can lead to over-dry hair, including hair dyes, hair blowers, and swimming in chlorinated water. But a significant change in texture that leaves hair feeling finer, with less body, can be an indicator hypothyroidism. Some people conclude that their hair is thinning because it feels as if there’s less of it, but the thinning is due more to the texture of the hair itself becoming finer and weaker than to individual hairs falling out (though that happens too). Other signs of hypothyroidism include fatigue, weight gain, slow heart rate, and feeling cold all the time. In some cases, the eyebrows also thin and fall out.
