The issue: Oily scalp
Description: Oil glands work overtime due to shifts in hormonal levels
Symptoms: Hair is greasy close to the roots and drier at the ends
Nutrition tip: Take 160 milligrams of saw palmetto extract twice a day; this has been shown to inhibit an enzyme that stimulates sebum secretion..
The issue: Thinning hair
Description: Hair loses strength and thickness. This can be caused by crash diets, pulling hair back too tightly, or endocrine disorders
Symptoms: Hair becomes finer, shorter, and takes up less space, exposing more of the scalp
Healthy recommendation: To strengthen brittle hair, massage a small amount of coconut oil (it strengthens the roots of the hair and conditions the shaft, promoting healthy growth) into your scalp for five minutes, working through from roots to ends. Wrap your head with plastic wrap and a warm, damp towel. Wait 5–15 minutes, depending on the length of your hair, and rinse out thoroughly. Repeat twice a week.
Nutrition tips: Feed your scalp! What you eat affects the health of your hair and scalp. Nutrients from food provide the energy that fuels hair growth.
